Only the most explosive variety - antimatter bullets!

Without a reloading frame, there isn't much I can do with it for Helsturm, although I do intend to port the newer sprites back to it eventually.

Can it dual wield? 'cause dual wielding needs more love.

Working on it.

EDIT: The XM27 can now be dual-wielded.

To be honest, I usually don't remember to update the "last updated" text with each update, which is probably something I should handle more promptly in the future. I usually don't apply the version name to the files themselves - hence thetrooper.pk3, helsturm.pk3, etc. Monster DECORATE hasn't really changed much since 0.1.3 either


So this must mean I can just copypaste the old monster DECORATE and RDND sprites into the new version without doing everything by hand again? :)

The Crimson Spectre's sprite edge doesn't fit on the screen properly on very high resolutions (The original image is 2560x1080, 110 FOV)

I've uploaded a fix - the Crimson Spectre's sprites no longer have a cutoff on the right side, so they should fit regardless of resolution.

Re: [WIP] The Trooper - 0.2 Released! [ULTRA BOOTS+FIXES]

Postby TheRailgunner » Tue May 10, 2016 6:33 pm

A few quick fixes, plus a new powerup:

*Quad Damage now replaces Berserk; Berserk effect is now exclusively granted by the Demon Blood Sword.
*Dual-wielding the XM27 during Quad Damage functions properly now.
*Nishimura Seven no longer bobs during A_WeaponReady sections of its firing animation.
*Joe Nameless now has a few new attributes - lowered side-move speed, increased jump height, smaller radius, increased step height, and slightly lower gravity.
*Blursphere now replaced with Ultra Boots - grants a jump-height increase, 1.75x movement speed, and lower gravity for 60 seconds!
*Monsters can cross monster blocking lines.

EDIT: Fixed a bug where the Nishimura Seven's Ready state was missing A_WeaponReady.

Random Deaths and Decorations is to be used with or without the mod Glaice?
He even has a slightly larger size than the original Trooper.

The RDND version is standalone, so it can be used without the_trooper.pk3 or the base RDND mod right out of the box.

Re: [WIP] The Trooper - 0.2.1 Released! [QUICK MELEES!]

Postby TheRailgunner » Wed May 11, 2016 2:58 pm

Alright, so I've added quick melees:

*The knife can be used while any gun is drawn with User1.
*The Demon Blood Sword can be used (if you have it) in the same fashion using User2.

Note that since weapons now have +THRUGHOST (so that the DBS can still reflect projectiles), any custom/non-Doom enemies that have the +GHOST flag will be immune to anything other than projectiles/FastProjectiles, so keep that in mind if you, uh, like shooting ghosts. You cannot quick melee if you have a melee weapon drawn, mainly because such would be rickdiculous and unnecessary.

EDIT: Fixed a huge sound bug with sword-based melees playing the weapon's firing sound.

loved the update so far, but somewhat felt uncomfortable with the new movement, as some of the jump-disabled maps can easily get trapped. especially jump-disabled megawads.
A CVAR and/or a menu would work, so i can switch to Trooper Movement or Vanilla Doom Movement.

Played this for about an hour on Episode 2 of Switcheroom. I love all of the authentic names for the weapons and their background info: real cartridge names, etc. I can tell where you got some of the inspiration. I dig the steal shell-casing from the AK-4- I mean- AS-46. All of the weapons feel great. When ever I play with a weapon mod, I'm always nervous that it'll unbalance the game and make it too easy, your mod does the opposite. It feels harder, more tactical. I had to adjust my play-style to not get rekt.

I like how the enemies retreat quickly when hurt, but I feel that tougher enemies, like Hell-knights, Barons, and Cacos should become MORE aggressive instead, perhaps doing several attacks in quick succession, or charging towards the player to do a powerful melee attack. I also noticed a couple weapon sprites look like they're aiming a little downwards, like the XM27 and Pulsar-D, but this isn't a big deal.

My only major gripe is the new MaxStepHeight. TONS of maps are designed around 24 unit MaxStepHeight, so when it gets bumped up, there's potential to break those maps. It becomes annoying when maps use a 24 unit tall railing to keep players from falling off of a bridge and into a slime pit, or when you've accidentally wandered into a part of the map before your supposed to be there. I'd like to see an optional patch to restore the MaxStepHeight to 24. After all, if players need to get up higher than that, they could always just jump. :wink:

Congrats on making such a great mod, can't wait to see Zandro servers using it! :mrgreen:
