Re: Aracnocide [Update 25/09 (SHOTGUN!!!)] - Weapon/Enemies

Post by Dr_Cosmobyte »

I haven't solved the problem, but i bring you guys a Hotfix for previous update!

http://www.mediafire.com/file/v94brdzyb ... -28-09.rar

- Nerfed Avalon Spider gas speed.
- Nerfed Arachnophobia ammo amount.
- Enemies on Arachnophobia deal more damage.
- Took those HEXEN sky textures out.
- Renamed the file properly.
- Fixed PSX Powerslave scorpion states.
- A new quit message.
- New Flame sprites for the Flamethrower.
- Nerfed Ammo spawners.

I might be off my projects until monday, so i think this should do for now. Go get your Aracnocide copies, everyone!

Well it's been a while but I finally gave this one a try again and it's pretty good! I just don't really like how a lot of the monsters are so small, it makes aiming at them a bit hard (although I've convinced myself that's the intention). :p

I've yet to play a lot with this mod of yours, but I think there's a bug with the crossbow - if you run out of ammo and switch to another weapon, you can see a bolt loaded in it.

I want to say sorry for turning my back on this for so long, but i just can't keep my mind on many things at a time. I'm not a multi-task man. :s

But, i know the game still crashses for some ungodly reason. So, to avoid breaking gameplays for such, i released a quick pk3 that has only the game enemies, allowing you guys to use any weapon pack of your choice!

It uses a MAPINFO edit, that shouldn't be a big deal. I tested with many things and they went right.

While this can carry on the game vitality for a little bit more, i am going to do what i can to rewrite weapon codings and see if i can find the main error in here.

While we're on the thread, user Mosshopper made two maps exclusively for Aracnocide! According to him, it's still a WIP and he plans on doing two levels more. I felt really happy on discovering about it.

Download them and cheer up the guy if possible. I don't know if he's going to create an thread for it, but for now, i'll leave this link in here. :)

Have fun :)

Guys, i'm sorry for necroposting, but i would like to say that i'm still working on this.

I got fired yesterday morning, so, i might have more time to rely on some stuff;

some weapons will be class specific, there'll be more weapons, and some new stuff you'll find interesting!

I couldn't fix the freeze bug. I will release a version out soon for some expert coder to help me out.

Also, i will post screenies as soon as possible.

Thanks for your attention in advance. :)

This Mod is also one of my favorites. actually it brings me Arachnophobia just from looking at it, so this is the mod to kill that fear. I'll keep an eye for future updates.

- Also, Are you Ok from what happened?

sorry about that friend, its tough, but keep your chin up!
I just tried this out and i actually like it quite a bit. i can tell this isn't trying to be a tactical mod, so i'm sorta taking the weapon mechanics and animations with a grain of salt, and i think this is fun.
I would certainly lower the gravity and bounciness of the grenade launcher. also casings are pretty bouncy.
while playing through tnt i found i hard to find pistol ammo, but i had loads of shotgun ammo.
I played though the second class, gonna switch to the first and get back to you. I'm playing on the kingdom of the spiders difficulty.

one major thing is that your crowbar and your baseball bat are NOT widescreen friendly. thats a major bug.

First of all, thanks for the kind words guys, it really cheers me up to keep working this.

Not trying to fake modesty, i got fired for lack of attention and they've given way more chances than i deserved. I can't complain. I'm sad, but i'm slowly getting convinced that it was my fault and i should learn from it. If i could fix the errors in the past, i'd most likely get the bad news a little ahead, since i wouldn't learn from them, right?

Anyway, Crudux:

Check out this new update ;) Baseball bat is ready to beat up the brats.

I'll tweak the grenades in the future, i just need some time more.

Deii - thanks for noticing the crossbow bug, Fixed!

Miguel: Weapon pack released man! Hope you like the new weapons!

Oh yeah, i'm sorry if that disappoint you guys, but both the BFG9000(the upgrade) and the akimbo Uzis were taken off. They were kinda futile for the places they were occupying.

As i said before, now weapons are class specific (though you can see most of them with IDKFA/IDFA), and are represented with numbers corresponding to their slots. A number coloured the same way as the square around it means it's the weak weapon of that slot; the number painted on a orange tone it's the strongest on it's tier. Ammo follows a kinda different pattern, but I'll leave it up to you guys.

Hope you all like the new update! :)

First of all, This update Rocks my socks off. i enjoyed it.
second, Maybe the Akimbo Uzis and the BFG-9000 should be in the Alternate (or cut and previous version) weapons pack ala Lowtech?

I like the class thing going on. Do you have any intention of doing the same with Lowtech and the alternate weapons?

Miguel - which version do you use? Probably the status bar and some effects like A_spawnitemEx might not work. But i can run it on gzdoom 1.8.2 though.

Yukes - maybe a third class? I have more than this left outside, but i need some inner organization first. Also, i would like to try out that HUD you showed me :)

Somagu - not a bad idea, but that would mean reworking all the weapon spawn system for both doom and heretic, so, this needs more time.
