What I also like a lot are the coronas from "BrĂ¼tal Doom" (which are actually directly from Doomsday) and that they were used for the torches and also for the hud-weapons when firing. Take a look at the following thread, the first video: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=28920 ... that would be cool, but it's only a suggestion


Well, I'll be honest. Im not too fond about the coronas on either case. I have an idea in mind for the powerups, but I'll see how it turns out in practice. But for the weapons, I'll simply pass.

Now, time for another video, just because I keep on (slowly) testing this, and I like to record the boss fights :P



Now I wonder, was the flamer always THAT strong or did I somehow mess the balance regarding that weapon? :shrug:
Time to re-check the code again, I guess.

you know. after seeing all the nice effects, this is a really nice mod
but something still bothers me.

the weapon sprites

Can you also improve them with smother ones like in Beautiful doom, Re doom or Brutal doom? because I'm sure that there are a lot of improved sprites for most of those weapons.... The monsters are already fine if you're wondering.

or you're not going to bother changing the sprites. just asking.

A really cool thing IMO, would be particle like Muzzle flashes for SSG, SG, CG and such, like RGA2, or JDoom.
And the effects so far are really nice ;), I especially loved the plasma gun.

I also think the weapon sprites should be changed

Nah. Same goes for "smooth" weapons.

Changing the sprites, as for "totally new weapon sprites": I'll pass. However, about the smooth weapons... Not too long ago I was precisely messing with that, so I have part of the work already done.

I'll check the permissions for perkristian's smooth weapons, and if he allows it, I might just add them.

That is much preferable.
Thanks.

Ok. Beta released.

It would take me too long to test this completely, and I'd rather sit and enjoy playing it, rather than rushing to the exit to ensure is all working fine (which should be the case, I have got zero problems this far).

Sorry for the mini bump, but I just realized of a bug with the chaingun that was causing it to shoot 2 bullets instead of one when holding fire. It was also using twice as much ammo, but that meant balance change, and that was never the intention. I just reuploaded the file. So, for those 2 users that did download the file, I'd suggest to redownload it :P

for the minigun, you can ask Sergeant_Mark_IV for his smooth sprited minigun.

you just have to rehand it

You might want to check out my already-rehanded version in "X-Marines", from an older version of the same weapon (http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index.php?id=16677).
I also have another flavor of it in the arsenal for the "Trainee" class in "Parallel Forces", but it's derived from another set of starting sprites... :wink: (http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index.php?id=16221)
