I get an error when compiling the script using Risen's ACS, gotten from here:
Code: Select allExpand view
 Line 221 in file "script.acs" ...
 script.acs:221: levelinfo_start_time : Identifier has not been declared.
 >    mapstat[6] = (Timer() - GetLevelInfo(LEVELINFO_START_TIME))
 >                                                             ^
 
 The ACS compiler did not compile your script.

Sounds like you're not using the most recent version of ACC, v1.33.

Grab it here: http://www.zdoom.org/files/utils/

Since I was away for some time, I did happen to check for an updated ACC because I recalled something being said about new functions that Randy coded in, so I do in fact have 1.33.

LEVELINFO_START_TIME has been removed due to uselessness. Remove

Code: Select allExpand view
- GetLevelInfo(LEVELINFO_START_TIME)


to make it work.

No-one seems to have submitted any week two maps yet. I'll try to have M4 ready within 16 hours, but I'm not guaranteeing it, since at least eight of those will consist of sleep :P.

IIRC only four maps were being worked on in week two, so you if you browse back through the thread to the end of week one you'll find the most recent versions of several of the levels.

mapstat[6] = (Timer())

It's 4:00 AM here and I think I can safely assume that no one is expecting E1M1 right about now?.. Good, then I shall go to sleep and upload it tomorrow (today) after a few finishing touches.

NiGHTMARE wrote:My ideas in brief:

- Reward codes and new level to use them in, as already discussed.

- Real objectives. Some specific goals other than "find the key to open the door, then find another key to open another door" would help to spice up both gameplay and the storyline a bit.

- More gore. I was playing (well, with an average framerate of about 1 fps even at 320x200, more like watching) Cold As Hell today, and all the blood splats and dripping blood everywhere looks cool. Sick but cool. Same with the corpse variations in RTC-3057 hub 1.

- A few (emphasis on few) surviors in strategic locations. Maybe the odd scientist or a small group of marines (who of course die soon after you meet them).

- A super secret level. Possibly only accessed using a reward code. I just think it would be nice to add something *really* new... and who knows, maybe this prospect could attract dochist to help with the level design ;).


As you can see there's quite a lot of work there, and implenting it into "Phase I" would create a larger delay than many people would deem acceptable. Also, if we stick with the current work schedule, KDIZD should be ready around a week before Doom 1's 11th birthday on December 10th - which would make a great release date!

I personally wouldn't be contributing to a hypothetical "Shores of ZDoom" due to a conflict of interest with a similar project, so any work I did on "KDIZD Contributor's Cut" won't interfere with that in any way :).


Actually ... I like all those ideas and that's why I consider, adding some more weeks to this project, the question is just, if all of the persons in Round 2 have time for this, so what do you guys think?

And by the way, can you guys give me a list of latest map downloads and also a list of progress for week 2 (so far, it is over since yesterday, so I want to have a small report on that!)

Well, okay, I have time, so I did a progress list on the maps myself:

E1M1 - [missing?]
E1M2 - [missing?]
E1M3 - [missing?]
E1M4 - (for week 2) http://ccc.1asphost.com/Sonybono/Ze1m4.zip22
E1M5 - (for week 2) http://uk.geocities.com/nb_nmare/ze1m5.ZIP
E1M6 - [missing?]
E1M7 - (for week 3) http://home.arcor.de/tormentor667/kdizd ... -ze1m7.zip
E1M8 - [missing?]
E1M9 - [missing?]
These are the only maps I found which have a "latest" status (could be under developement right now) but I am really not sure for the rest, so could EVERYBODY upload a "after week2" version of their map? I want all the episode's maps be placed in this list, and all for week 3 status!!!

Week Progressing List
Code: Select allExpand view
          WEEK1     WEEK2     WEEK3
E1M1    cccp_leha cccp_leha --------
E1M2    Tormentor --------  cccp_leha
E1M3    ellmo     ellmo    ellmo   
E1M4    Risen     Nightmare --------
E1M5    Nightmare --------  --------
E1M6    --------  cccp_leha Risen   
E1M7    --------  Tormentor Nightmare
E1M8    NMN        --------  Tormentor
E1M9    BioHazard NMN          --------

Is this the latest version?

Times:
Week 1: October 22th, till November 5th
Week 2: November 5th, till November 19th
Week 3: November 19th, till December 3rd

@Risen - Could you be so kind and post the code for our maps once more and also the info on how to work with it in our maps? Unfirtunately I don't find it anymore, but I want to put it on the first page so it can be found easier!

Tormentor667's .plans Update
Okay, here we go: On December 3rd, all the maps must be finished concerning design, detail, gameplay, ammo/monster balance and everything else. So if you start working on week 3, consider this. Focus your power on these aspects and don't start adding new features for now!
After round 3 has been finished, we will immediately start with the "OOAK" phase ("One-Of-A-Kind" Phase) in which we will add those special things, requested in the last few pages, but I will write this down in some later stages of our round 2 developement. So hold on and get your work done till December 3rd!

E1M4 is coming soon, I promise :). I've almost finished fixing all the misalingnments, and the gameplay has been spruced up a bit too. However, since I don't know how to do some of the things that still need doing, someone else will need to add the finishing touches. Specifically:

- Add haze to the starting monorail ride
- Make the fans silent

Also, the gameplay wasn't really tested, so better balancing is almost certainly going to be needed.

I am working on the import code again today, it will be changing since I will be implementing the new .94 features that Randy implemented. I'll post as soon as I can. I'm on for M6 next week but until it shows up here I will keep working on the intermission.

Nightmare: Try using the silent sector thing. I know it works well for monsters, as I put it in a cache in M7.

Okay, but how do you actually use it? There doesn't seem to be anything on the Wiki about it.
