I am working as a graphics designer so that's actually my job :) All of them are PNG paletted.

I hope you'll have a long career, in Europe having a job can be a miracle in these days... Also, I'm an unemployed italian guy, so I know what's the meaning of... BTW, any hint on how to use Doom2 palette with GIMP et similae?

Thanks for the kind words!

A few more things:
  • Is it right that you do not need the original Batman WAD anymore as everything's in the PK3?
  • I fixed the electrotazer, see attachment.
  • The flamethrower is still missing the hud weapon when it is firing, try it yourself :(

BTW, have you tested the boss battles as well and other valuable "hacks" ACE team included to make the mod work as it is intended to?

@"Is it right that you do not need the original Batman WAD anymore as everything's in the PK3?"
Yes, absolutely... unless I've lost something of it :lol:

@"I fixed the electrotazer, see attachment."
Is there anymore that I should say? I think not. :rock:

@"The flamethrower is still missing the hud weapon when it is firing, try it yourself"
So, finally there will be some graphics to work for me. :lol: :lol: :lol:

@BTW, have you tested the boss battles as well and other valuable "hacks" ACE team included to make the mod work as it is intended to?
While I don't have time to play all vanilla ACE BD, I've encountered some problems with KillerCroc lift/throw boulders, map29 Penguin's healthbar (but this wasn't a vanilla glitch) & strange Zeke Molotov throwers anims (while holding bottles, sometimes in the left then right, that's a sprite rotating prob). Something has changed, this Reborn won't be PERFECTLY faithfully to original BD, but I'll continue to remain genuine until everything is fixed. For now I'm playing each map in order to see what should I do to fix them.

I understand that and it doesn't need to be perfectly faithful but at least you need to be able to play it without cheating :) I can test the boss battles and similar things this evening, but other people should maybe play the mod as well to make sure everything's fine.

I see that Mav3rick sometimes replies for this project only for playtesting purposes. Also, I'm playing each level in order to get everything fixed (not only warnings). Here you are my playtesting progresses:

1) KillerCroc isn't a threatening enemy, very slow on throwing boulders and could be easily killed with some strafing + smokebombs - decorate must be changed;

2) PenguinBoss on map29 is quite hard to beat because continuosly PenguinRobot spawning + claustrophobic place to battle, but maybe it's a limit of mine. Also when he dies, Evil Space Tomato healthbar is not correctly removed: it remains until I fight with Scarecrow on the near courtyard. So special ACS must be redone for this reason. Here you are source code of it:
Spoiler:

3) Concerning of Scarecrow, his "trick or treat" frightening spawn (always on map29, didn't tested on map16) is missing something, maybe I could add some "green smoke" in order to "hide" double "Scarecrows" (look at this screenshot). I think that's surely something with decorate;

4) TallyMan & Two-Face are OK, I've tested them recently and everything seems to be clean;

5) Bane needs some effects like Hexen bishops & minotaur, earthquakes and Venom power (must see what's meant for, don't know exactly this character);

That's all.

Please no earthquakes :) I thing you partially went overboard with them in your own mod :)

I'm just only trying to spur a bit my fantasy, but at the moment these grandiose things are not needed, aren't them? :lol:
Uh, concerning of fantasy I've added rain effects at the moment...

Rain might be an addition that's in the spirit of the original, I can imagine as long as you don't go overboard with things like that.

Just tried the new version, nice additions, I like em.

Though, +FLOATBOB for ammo and keys? Why the hell? This feels totally unfitting and more for the sake of being used intead of being incorporated because it was meant to be :-/

I'll take a look onto this. BTW the project is called REBORN.

I do understand this, and it is just a suggestion and nothing you MUST change, it's your mod overall. Though, floating ammo and floating weapons simply do not make any sense as there is nothing magical about them.

I also understand your point of view, it's only a matter of taste in it: I always liked floating objects! BTW I think I'll move this inside AddOn pk3 from next update. Thankx. :wink:

Hey heroes, I've just updated Reborn to version 0.4.2 (yes, modifications are still on a slightly level). For anybody interested on what's changed, go forward and take a look to the changelog. Anyway, Killer Croc is now a threatening enemy & its boulders bounce as they were meant to do.
