I'd like to study it a bit. I have cinematic uses in mind for a camera that I can turn on it's side, nothing physics defying like this. Again, awesome work, this a gem of a mod.


Ah that part with the turret! You gotta jump to avoid the targeting laser!

Anyways, I guarantee the ACS source will come with v0.5
I might include it with the next release or the next release after that, which would be v0.3 and v0.4

Allow me to break down how the roll effect works:
Everybody deserves to know this.
A camera is looking straight down/up at a 90° angle at a camera texture, so the cameras pitch is either 90° or -90°.
In my mod, the camera looks straight down.
To change the "roll" angle, I change the cameras yaw, therefore rotating the camera texture seen on-screen.
The camera texture is linked to a camera which is teleported/set to the players position constantly, and that camera also copies the players view angles.

Currently I am working on v0.3, more features to come!

This would include:
Ability to choose where to start
Bug fixes
Different types of turrets
Bigger map

Anyways, hope you had fun guys!

I might.
For now it will be one big map with 3 main parts.
Of course, later on I will make more maps in later versions.

:-? Hmmm, that took me a few minutes to wrap my brain around, but that's a genius way to accomplish this.

Hey guys, just wanted to add that the settings you pick in the roll menu are now saved as CVars!
This will be coming in v0.3.

I've decided I will try to get v0.3 done by the end of December.
I've also decided, I am going to double the length of v0.2's map and add a bunch of new rooms!

Make sure to update GZDooM to the latest version!

I've finally got to adding the ability to start at any checkpoint in the game.
So far there are 4 places you can start, but once I get more of the map done for v0.3, there should be 8.

I didn't really understand what you said here. What pack are you talking about?

Hoping I won't cause too much trouble, but here's a little bump to say something.
Although I'm late to it, I'm putting up v0.3 in the near future.
This mod isn't dead, so don't worry about that.

I really, really like the music. Calm, ambient soundtracks like those are my favorite.

It's mostly for the atmosphere I am (or am trying to) set up for this mod.
Expect to see some more similar tracks popping up in later versions.
There will be some tracks that will add to more of a 'depressing' or a 'intense' atmosphere rather than a calm one, for example.

Anyhow, I'm glad to see people enjoyed v0.2
v0.3 is currently in the works.
