Doomreal [1.1.4]

Doomreal is the first major Doom Tournament sub-mod. This is my biggest project to date, covering not just the base Unreal 1 arsenal, but also loads of dummied out content, some of which never really saw the light of day even in existing Unreal/UT mods. A lot of work has been done to remodel and reanimate unfinished weapons and provide new sounds and effects. Hopefully, all of this has been worth the wait™.

Obviously, the mod requires Doom Tournament.

You can download a prepackaged build here (last updated: May 17th 2021 16:08 CEST) , or just head over to the GitHub repo.

It has its own add-ons too:

  • DT Combiner Patch : Re-adds UT items back to the game. Compatible with most DT add-ons as long as they're loaded before Doomreal. (last updated: January 4th 2020 20:44 CET)
  • Unreal music playlist : Contains all map tracks from Unreal Gold, plus some beta stuff. Requires Doom Tournament's music add-on. (last updated: November 1st 2019 13:32 CEST)
  • Old sounds pack : Replaces various sounds with those of earlier Unreal versions, for those who prefer them. (last updated: February 1st 2020 11:02 CET)
  • Alt. Flamethrower model : A somewhat better looking model built around an old Biorifle skin. (last updated: December 4th 2019 13:37 CET)
  • Alt. Protomag Skin : The alternate, rusty skin from later Unreal versions. (last updated: October 16th 2019 18:16 CEST)
  • Alt. Protomag Skin (left only) : Same but only affecting the off-hand protomag when dual wielding. (last updated: October 16th 2019 18:16 CEST)
  • Old Dispersion Pistol skin : The darker looking skin from before beta 4. (last updated: September 29th 2019 12:43 CEST)
  • Old Tarydium shard skin : Beta 4 made it brighter to match the final look. (last updated: September 29th 2019 12:44 CEST)
  • Old Biorifle skin : This one was also darker before Beta 4. (last updated: September 29th 2019 12:45 CEST)
  • RTNP weapons : Coming soon.
  • Monster pack : This will happen someday. It's going to be hard because I plan on making the AI behave as closely as possible like Unreal's.
Spoiler: Features (many of them configurable)

This post is reserved for listing bugs, suggestions, and other notes.

Spoiler: Older versions

1.1 changelog:
  • Menu tooltips.
  • Hexen compatibility (Combiner Patch has been updated too).
  • Environment Map shader fixes from Doom Tournament.
  • Buffed Stunner so it's actually useful. This goes against what the Unreal Bible indicated but whatever, the weapon would be useless otherwise.
  • "Superweapons" now have +ALWAYSPICKUP for consistency.
  • Sneaky Strife stuff:
    • Dispersion Pistol and Stunner have reduced alert radius.
    • Rename Peacemaker sprites to avoid conflict with peasant sprites.
  • Disable decapitation with bonesaw primary fire, for balance.
1.1.1 changelog:
  • Propagate sound overhaul from Doom Tournament.
  • Added extended '95 theme from Unreal mac port.
1.1.2 changelog:
  • Fixed missing click sound on Teleport Capsules.
1.1.2 hotfix 1 changelog:
  • Fixed stinger fire sound not stopping when running out of ammo.
1.1.2 hotfix 2 changelog:
  • Fixed missing Eightball explosion sounds. stinger_oldsounds_m is affected by this update.
  • Fixed excess loudness of Eightball by making the projectiles play the fire sound instead (which is what was supposed to happen).
1.1.2 hotfix 3 changelog:
  • Just an update to the patron credits. Doom Tournament got the actual hotfix, for crashing during an ice death.
1.1.3 changelog:
  • Propagated Swinger removal from DT. Also updated patron list while I was at it.
1.1.4 changelog:
  • Stunner ammo does not recharge if you don't have the Stunner selected.

Remember to update Doom Tournament too whenever a new release of Doomreal is out, as sometimes it has changes that will be required here.

I've been following development of this project, but still held myself from playing it until release.
So, it's about damn time. 8-)

I can't get this to run, it keeps coming up with 318 script errors upon startup. The regular Doom Tournament works perfectly fine, and I did update my GZDoom to the latest dev build as well as update DT. Did I miss something?

Pastebin the errors, that doesn't look normal. Are you sure you're loading both mods in the right order?

This is really incredible stuff! It's amazing to see my favorite arsenal (and other features) incorporated into Doom at last. Great work, Marisa! :D
I also agree, the '95 Unreal tune is incredible. I remember when I found it ages ago I used to get goosebumps at that climactic bridge near mid-portion of the song-- hearing the return bridge near the end always gets me too, oof. The menu intro theme you did with it definitely does it sufficient atmospheric justice-- love it! ('changemus unreal' is going to be a frequent command for me in gameplay runs, haha)

A few inquires: Seeing as how the Protomag is a seperate weapon and melees automatically when it runs out perhaps there should be an option for it as the extra starting weapon as opposed to / in alternate to the regular U1 Automag (what with Dispersion Pistol running low on ammo sometimes and such?) Just an idea but I don't know how involved that'd be with the code at play here.
The U1 Automag reload sounds seems a little, 'off' to me when ejecting the magazine? When comparing it to Unreal the ejected magazine makes a chunkier sound whereas here it seems to be done silently with the other sounds coming before and after instead. Perhaps this was intentional but it threw me off a little.
finally, a lesser point: Are Class skins going to be a thing at any point in time? By extent is the Skaarj Player ever going to be considered playable? It makes sense if he would clash too much with the Mobs segment you got planned, though.

Nitpicks aside, I am having one hell of a good time with what you've done here, easily going to be one of my favorite things to load up on any occasion.

Are you by chance using the regular release of Doom Tournament or the Cutting Edge version "devel"?

Found the problem, it was the music addon for UT99 conflicting with it. I didn't think it would effect it but it apparently does.

This is fantastic so far. Very promising!

The rifle seems to fade in and out if you use three-burst shot and flashlight while zoomed. Otherwise, as a guy who replays Unreal once a year, consider this as me pressing the nut button.

Now if only there'd be an option to get some old-skinned redeemer in it, hint hint nudge nudge~

Oh I love this... I love this so much, and that Quadshot... it's the stuff of wet dreams...

I really like the exotic weaponset of Unreal, and this mod does it justice perfectly. Great work, can't wait to see further updates for it!!

Solid work, congrats on the release.

I feel like nitpicking just a slight bit about the Dispersion Pistol: I seem to recall it shoots very slightly faster before it receives its upgrade kits, and slows down somewhere around level 2 or 3, but here, it is on its "slow" setting from the start. Is this an intentional move for sake of consistency?

Your Doom Tournament is out of date (or the wrong branch, you're supposed to use devel).

The problem with this is that it's such a fine gradual change that it would be impossible to really replicate in GZDoom due to the whole limitation of animation speed being tied to states.

Awesome! Thanks!
Btw I did this the other way around. I brought Doom assets into Unreal.
You almost can't tell the difference which is amazing :O
