Ashes Afterglow TC - closing the vault

Projects that have specifically been abandoned or considered "dead" get moved here, so people will quit bumping them. If your project has wound up here and it should not be, contact a moderator to have it moved back to the land of the living.

Well AboveLightingCube,
why don't you use the save game and try out what will happen if you choose your options. :D

For me as I get on that point i liked that you can take things in your hands an decide what to do. This is a very cool feature. 8-)

Totally agree, it's awsesome. I'm just lazy, impatient, and strapped for time, so I generally like to read how decisions can play out first and then choose a preferred path. Just my way of doing it.

Well AboveLightningCube,
I think impatience is not helpful for getting further in Ashes Afterglow :D @S0ulman correct me if I'm wrong :)

I also think that this mod is not made to just ran over to end just do a bit get rid of enemys.
The creators did a very good job doing this and also to create such large mod needs much patience.
Give it a try AboveLightingCube, cause you might be missing some details. (an there are lot's of them)

How do I get the best ending? From having tried Kyle's way, Garavito's way, and Baron's way, I found the Baron's way most agreeable. However, I didn't rat out Kyle because I understood his situation.

Is this the way to the best ending or should I have told the sheriff?

Your game is a masterpiece. I've had so much fun with it. Thank you for this reply, makes sense. And please, keep up the great work.

Is there a way to donate?

I seem to have ran into an issue with the final boss. I can't seem to avoid the instakill attack it does after being defeated and doing the short monologue. I can't kill it while it's lying on the floor (as my attacks just go straight through it) and I can't dodge the attack by hiding behind a pillar. Using Titan stim prevents death, but the forcefields remain and the screen is permanently red.
I'm using Afterglow v1.10, and here's the save https://files.catbox.moe/imwy8f.zds

Think i mentioned this on my feedback; where final boss is still able to insta-kill you even if you shoot her before that. Pretty sure that doesn't happen anymore if i recall my previous playthrough, Version 1.10 played on GZDoom g4.9.0.

Speaking of the version, i can't load your save file even though i put it right into Save folder. Maybe the version of GZDoom is mismatching?

Here's what his savegame's info.json looks like:
{ "Software": "GZDoom g4.9.0a", "Engine": "GZDOOM", "Save Version": 4559, "Title": "ashes-afterglow", "Current Map": "MAP28", "Game WAD": "DOOM2.WAD", "Map WAD": "AshesAfterglow1_10.pk3", "Creation Time": "2022-12-02 16:38:08", "Comment": "MAP28 - Missile Gap\nTime: 01:25:52" }
Perhaps this helps.

I'm playing on Linux, version should be the 4.9.0a I got from the .deb package.
After a couple more attempts I managed to kill the boss, I just needed to land the final shot before it falls to the ground with a Junker Driver instead of the Service Rifle's altfire. I think it may have something to do with gibbing, as the problems happened when the last attack during the fight was an explosion, and the Junker Driver kill (which allowed me to finish the boss off) had an audible gibbing sound when it fell to the ground.
