  • If no to the previous one, did I put a reasonable amount of work into the resource myself, such that the changes are noticeably different from the source that I could take credit for them?
If you answered no to all three, maybe you should consider taking your stuff somewhere other than the Resources forum.

Rise of the Triad-style Message Boxes

This ZScript message box replacement implements Rise of the Triad-style messages that replace the existing on-screen text/prompts.
- Quit messages have matching icons, messages, and exit sounds that play when you select 'yes' (as seen in screenshot)
- Notification messages (e.g, choosing 'Save Game' when you're not in a level) show an exclamation point icon
- Prompt messages (e.g, Do you want to save over this game?) show a question mark icon and the yes/no prompt

All of the resources included here are pulled directly from ROTT... This is mostly a proof of concept, and there are a couple of things that are more hackily done than I'd like, but it works with every IWAD and mod that I tested it with.

Known Issues: The included exit sounds sometimes won't play fully, because the engine only waits for 3 seconds (105 tics) for the sound to play before actually quitting; some of the extracted ROTT sounds in the archive are 4 and 5 seconds long.

You can download the file here (152 KB).

Hi, looks like that something has changed in zscript v3.3, it doesn't work with it anymore.

If this gets fixed in future versions it would be fantastic to see a Doom themed version of these be made. With the doom quit messages and doom graphics/custom graphics
