[2.2] Corruption Cards - Choose cards that alter your game!

Postby Cutmanmike » Tue Mar 24, 2020 2:23 pm


Requires GZDoom 4.4.0 or higher!

Description

Corruption Cards is a gameplay mod for Doom (and others) which presents the player with three random cards each level. These cards effect the gameplay in different ways, some more subtle than others. The effects range from changing monster behavior, adding new mechanics, adding extra hazards and much more! In the standard mode, you will be offered a permanent card every 3 levels. This card will be locked in for the rest of the game, meaning you will have to live with your choice until the game is over! There are now over 50 unique cards, and more are generated as the game is played. Every run you will be offered different cards, which leads to an ever changing gameplay experience... dictated by your card choices!

Corruption Cards works with all sorts of mods, and will even generate custom cards for any new monsters it detects! Give it a try with your favorites to spice up the gameplay and add a little extra challenge ;)

Spoiler:


Downloads

< Version 2.0 (Stable) > < Version 2.2 (Newest!) >


Corruption Cards Version 3a (outdated, for use with Zandronum)


Compatibility Patch Files

These are files for mods I could not fix without altering the code myself, and have to rely on patch wads:

Brutal Doom v21 - Compatability patch by Dox778 to fix disappearing monsters etc.

What's next?

New cards! Most of the new UI is done. I will keep adding new cards that I think are fair and interesting until I get bored of this project, which may be a long time as I made this mod for my own enjoyment.

If you've enjoyed what you've played, consider supporting me on my ko-fi page. Thanks :)

The idea is interesting. However, if you make the game more difficult, it could add to the thrill if you can also occasionally gain a bonus at the same time. As some kind of compensation or prize, if you will. Maybe the chance for getting such a bonus could increase when choosing a more difficult card or when gambling by picking the "hidden" one.

This would be quite good. Imagine getting a positive and negative effect for each card. That'd be quite cool as you'd have to juggle them both.

This seems really interesting. Looking forward to trying it out.

A couple of questions/requests:
1. Are the player's weapons affected? If not, would it be possible to play this with weapon mods that don't touch anything but weapons?
2. How many cards are there in the mod at the moment?
3. You said you had to replace or tweak every monster in Doom 2 for the mod to work. Would you be willing to use custom skins for monster types that are affected by the cards? So, for instance, when the cards make Imps fire Mancubus fireballs, the Imps would have a custom appearance from, say, Realm 667. You know, for variety's sake.

I'm a sucker for monster variety, please don't hold that against me.

Oh, and I second the positive bonuses idea.

Keep up the good work, cheers.

Honestly though, I would like to see this mod work for non-vanilla mods some day. It will be very fun to play with a lot other mods that I do like to play with randomizers at times. :)

Oh, and might you be thinking of adding more cards for the player to choose from in the future? Maybe some funny ones, some more good and bads, and maybe some useful stuff too just like the starting power ups as well?

I really like this mod, the idea is simple but really spices up gameplay! I'm looking forwards to seeing where you go with it.

Gave this a whirl and I'm looking forward to giving it a full play through. Took a shot at getting it to run in GZDoom (or LZDoom more specifically since I have a potato), but it would require a bit of work from what i can tell. Definitely going to give it a shot porting it though, cause theres just too many mods i miss that dont run in zandro.

This is this line:
Code: Select allExpand view
ConsoleCommand("compat_clientssendfullbuttoninfo 1");


Which is to help server hosts (Zandronum only) enable this flag, as missing it breaks the card selection choice. In GZDoom it just prints that warning apparently.

1 and 3. Not unless someone makes a version of this in ZScript, as every monster/item/projectile needs to call a script to be included in the card system. AFAIK there's no viable way to do that without zscript (in Zandronum, which I wanted to focus on). Anyone is welcome to give it a go though!
2. 98 at the moment. There were a couple more but I had to disable them as Zandronum didn't play nice with them, or they weren't balanced.

I tried to come up with balanced cards, that always have an upside but in practice I couldn't come up with many that didn't feel forced (i.e double imps but you get double ammo). Some of them kind of are, for example giving Zombie Men plasma bolts might be better than having them all have their usual hitscan weapons on certain maps. I liked the idea of eventually the game getting so difficult it was unbeatable, and seeing how far you could go. Also I'm a fan of forcing players (including myself) into "would you rather lose your foot or your arm?" situations. :wink: Again though, anyone is welcome to use this as a base and make their own as I'm mostly focusing on other projects right now, but just had to get this idea out in the open.

Just tried it Cutty, and I really like the concept. This is totally fun to play and gives the whole game a completely new dynamic. Gonna play around with it during my quarantine, I have so much time atm, it's a good thing to see that the community is running :)
