OBSIDIAN - Please Check https://obsidian-level-maker.github.io/ For Future Updates

Post by dasho »

OBSIDIAN is a community continuation of OBLIGE Level Maker, originally by Andrew Apted. It originated as a merge of Oblige 7.70 and the community content pack known as ObAddon, but since then has greatly expanded in scope.



Notable features
- GUI overhaul: Sliders, checkboxes, top bar menu, and theming are now built in
- UDMF map output option for ports that support it
- Improved RNG with 64-bit seed lengths and the ability to use arbitrary strings as seeds
- Ability to support Vanilla Doom and its engine limits by using the bundled SLUMP map generator
- "Surprise Me" option for randomization of selected settings
- Optional PK3/ZIP compression of generated WADs
- Migration from Lua to LuaJIT for greatly improved build speeds
- First-run tutorial for users not accustomed to the program or its interface
- More robust batch/CLI mode
- Ability to compile without a graphical interface for server/headless environments if desired
- Option to save an animated GIF of the level building process
- Integration of previous versions of Oblige to offer increased variety in level layouts and composition
- Improved internationalization support, along with a nearly complete Russian locale translation file included

Currently Supported Games
- Doom 1 / The Ultimate Doom/ Doom 2 / Final Doom
- Heretic
- Chex Quest 3
- HacX 1.2
- Harmony
- Hexen
- Strife
- Wolfenstein 3-D / Spear of Destiny
- Super Noah's Ark 3-D

Currently Supported Platforms
- Windows 32/64-bit, x86 architecture
- Linux 32/64-bit, x86 and ARM architectures
- BSD 32/64-bit, x86 and ARM architectures
- MacOS 64-bit, x86 architecture (tested with Github CI builds only)
- Haiku OS 32/64-bit, x86 architecture (console-only; GUI not supported)

Homepage with addons, changelog and compiled Windows releases -> https://obsidian-level-maker.github.io/index.html

Linux, BSD, Haiku OS and Mac OS will need to be manually compiled. MacOS has only been tested with GitHub automated CI builds, so although it compiles just fine, I have not been able to truly test it.

I would check your ObAddon install; I've kept all of the same prefabs that were in vanilla Oblige. If you are still getting this message without those addons enabled, let me know and I'll see what's causing it. Thanks.

Okay, with default settings but without Addons the maps generate without problem.

But, to be honest, if it does not work with ObAddon.pk3 then your version of Oblige is of no use to me. That addon is what makes Oblige worthwhile.

I use the current git build of ObAddon, which I also contribute to, without problems. If you have some logs or debug messages, I will look at them, but it should work with .pk3 addons out of the box.

EDIT: I did notice that an earlier build was tagged as Release, instead of Pre-Release. This is the latest compiled Windows package:
https://github.com/dashodanger/Oblige/r ... ring-Seeds

I removed the Release status from the earlier build.

I found a newer ObAddon_2020-06-10.pk3.
Now the map generator works okay, although in some spots there are missing textures.

That might have been a prefab-in-progress. I'm not sure why there hasn't been a stable release in a while, but:

https://github.com/dashodanger/ObAddon/ ... 2021-02-16

This is a build that tracks upstream ObAddon. Doom support should be improved, Heretic support is better but you may get the odd 'missing prefab' message. Hexen support exists but is in a very barebones state at the moment. The ObAddon discord has a changes channel that can provide more info if you'd like.

Did you make sure to set Texture WAD Merge from the Armaetus Texture Pack panel to "Yes"? If you set this to "No", you're expected to load the custom textures package separately from your client. This option is mostly for server owners to stop redundant downloads for the texture pack itself by clients.

Oblige is not a map editor like UDB.
Oblige is a random pwad generator, from a single map to a complete 32 level map set. It generates files in the wad format.

Oblige has undergone several iterations, from the original Oblige to Oblige v7.7.0 win64 and now this one.

Using this ObAddon or the one mentioned above enhances the maps.

It may be easier to find out about your problem if you have the text log of your last generated map suffering from this problem just to make sure.
