It's a remake of the Lowtech Mod made by Captain Red back in 2005. I always liked the way he worked the replacement of weapons. So, what i wanted to do was to remake it, add smoke, light, casings, centered weapons, altfires, better sounds, and get a little deeper into the theme. Of course, following feedback.
All i ask is a little attention and sincere feedback!
Credits are inside the rar, but here's another copy:
This list might be incomplete,
but i'm not trying to steal anyone's work.
I know better than many how sad it is to see people claiming their
merit while others gather all the prizes. Enough talk.
Credits goes to:
I forget names sometimes, but if YOU recognize something that ain't credited,
or that got credited wrong, do me a favor and tell me.
I won't be mad at you and i'll thank lots for helping me to keep the guys that
worked hard on the boards around. Spread the word.
So, let's start!
*Captain Red : The Creator of the original lowtech mod,
that gave me the idea to boost.
*Wildweasel, Zaero : The guys that got me started on decorate tricks,
tips and lessons to create things for GZdoom.
*Captain J and LedIris and YukesVonFaust : Excellent guys, feedbackers and wise
decorate wizards. I wouldn't do anything myself without their help.
*Lippeth, Sgt. Mark and Jekyll Grim Payne/Zer0 : Guys that brought
mods with many interesting stuff to study, learn,
and(with crediting of course), use from with no
major demandings but their names on the bottom lines.
*Sgt Shivers, JoeyTD, chronoteeth : Awesome guys and spriters good as fuck
that made many inspirational things or even,
things that i used, (like the tommygun) to bring out new inventions.
*My Wife: Supporting me since ever. Even when she hated me for going to bed late night because of Slade.
// Sprites, Sounds (weapons, objects...)
-Sgt. Mark IV
-Trevor_402 (for evil dead sounds for the chainsaw)
-Diodeus (for many resources).
-TorridGristle (Many, many resources!)
-TheZombieKiller (Blood resources)
-RSL (nice coding lessons!)
-SladeEXE (Doom64 Sprites)
-The Master Hand Sheet from the ZDoom forums. Saved my life countless times.
//The Voxels Team
I find this one important. I made many voxels from old sprites of mine,
but those i didn't made or took from shadow warrior and blood
original files must be credited to:
- Voxelbro: Cigarettes from Acessories to Murder by WildWeasel and DoomNukem.
- ReaperMan (Duke3D) : Nightvision, Armor, Steroids and the Chainsaw from Doom.
- DooMad (Doom voxel project) : Blue Armor and Backpack (started by ghostpilot).
- Ceejay : Didn't made any voxels but he made the sprite for
the panzerfaust, that's where i made the voxel from.
All the others were made by me or taken from Blood and Shadow Warrior.
-GT Interactive Software
-Insomniac (Disruptor Stuff)
if i forgot someone, contact me. There's still the detailed list to do, but these are the ones i could remember right now.
