well the traps in heretic are quite clever. And the level design dont take into account run speed (i think), however design include the "jumping" (run over) function that you need to do in E1M5 , from one building to another. or in the cathedral e1m6 (that tomb was the most brilliant puzzle of my time, i include it in numerous RPG session with my buddy's).
I dont know about the crusher myself when I was a kid, I didnt even now you can run with shift then :), and I always eat the damage to take dragonclaw. Moreover, E1M1 for solid months of playing "Heretic duck-hunting demo" I cannot see corelation between yellow key and first steel gate :D, until my cousin show me how to do it.

updated link, if someone want to rip off golem hands by himself


edit:
Ice, new deaths animation, nitro fire, ghosts all take into account missing limb. Old golem death, is now Exploding death, when golem die by excessive amount of damage.
There is only one flaw with new golem sprites - if you set one-arm-golem, on fire, you can see he magically get back his lost arm. Yeah I know Im lazy.

Dude, those golem death animations look really nice! Especially the one where they lose their head

This looks like it would be amazing with Heretic Unabridged, by Beed28. I wonder, is there a quick way to slow down the player a tad? I know it's not the preferred way to play Heretic, but that was a game I always felt would be more fun at a slightly more methodical pace.

I know what you mean. For me running speed (2.0) in heretic (doom) damage a lot of his experience. You dont feel this isolation. Its like car racing game. You feel less bond with Corvus. The combat is simpler. Suddenly you dont have to hide, you can just outrun everything. Heretic was pretty scare game for me when I play it first time.

on the other hand map design require to travel a big distances quite often. Also the puzzle element are scattered from one map end to another. And if you get lost, wandering in empty corridors, would take more time. There is also few traps, but so far AFAIK all (except 2, when you have to press Shift) of them are doable with 1.1 speed.

current speed is 1.1, 10% faster than vanilla walk. If your Hp drop below 50 you will move 0.95. If you crouch you will move slower.

There is no menu option to adjust speed. And Im not keen to provide one (even if i know how to do it), because that would cause massive temptation to play on maximum speed available - who doesn't play with caps-lock ON all the time?

If you want to change speed in mod file

Would this effect the powerups that change speed as well? (Thank you so much for your help!)

Krater of Might adding +0.4 speed
You can change it by modifying value "C" here :

Code: Select allExpand view
if (checkinventory("SPEEDUP")>0)
                 {
                  C=0.4;


you can also adjust run speed, after you press Shift key

new feature to make the game even easier (people saying they dont feel powerful) .

Spoiler:

If you are cornered by multiple monsters than such a long stun time make more sens. 1on1 monsters have no chance for anything (but hey that why we playing doom :D ).
Spoiler:



I mirror pain 1 direction of asymetrical monster (original sprite is also retouch a little - tail, left hand, tongue out)


add weapons number to UI (include Fullscr mod - all credits and menus are still in game)

Sadly, the newest version doesn't seem to work in GZDoom devbuild.
Trying to start a new game results in a VM abort below:
