[WIP] Hotline 666 - Looking for artists/mappers (Alpha 2)

Postby The Zombie Killer » Sat Nov 07, 2015 3:55 am

Hotline 666 is essentially (or, something I'm hoping to turn into) a hell-themed Hotline Miami game in the form of a Doom mod.


Spoiler: "older videos"

The map in the above video is by Zeberpal, although it has been slightly modified.

Download Public Alpha 2 (Google Drive)
Download Public Alpha 1 (Google Drive)

Changelog (public alpha 2):

  • Fixed crashes when loading certain maps
  • Improved "terminator" cheat
  • Two new cheats ("cena" and "ghost")
  • Fullbright crosshair
  • Fixed player flickering when shot repeatedly (only noticeable with god mode on, obviously)
  • Hotline Miami-style movement, you now stop instantly, rather than slowing to a stop
  • Centered legs on characters correctly
  • Changed the default blood setting to "Mild"
  • Changed the default camera height to 200
  • Blood smears are no longer transparent
  • New enemy AI (still rather buggy and stupid)
  • Holding the run key will make the camera follow your crosshair
  • Removed references and stray code from pre-release pixellation feature
  • Added groundwork for weapon code
  • Added test shotgun (type "use shotty" in the console to try it out, and "use kalashnikov" to go back to the Kalashnikov)

Note that as of this version, legs do not work properly with bots, this will be fixed later, since multiplayer isn't currently this mod's focus.
Also note that you must have the latest development build of GZDoom in order for the mod to work.

Wow, this is outstanding. I did not expect gameplay to be so accurately ported to Doom. Feels so alike to original game, good job!

I like the way you want to turn it to Doom setting. I mean we have basic HotlineMiami games, and it should be something different, if you want it to be played. I think there is two wayouts: Singleplayer based and hell-themed. Or a complete copy of HM but multiplayer-zandronum-based, because original games don't support muliplayer.

Maybe it would be reasonable to take Jacket from Hawaiian conflict sprite, if you want to be it more like hell-themed HM game. That sprite more reminds him of being marine, also it could be interpretation of what Doomguy looks like from Top-down perspective :D Could be a nice catch.

If you plan to make a scenario, it probaly should be as awkward as in original Hotline, based in Doom setting though.
Do you plan to include cutscenes in the future, also including head-talking sprites?

Overall, I'm very excited about this!

Thanks! I tried to make it as accurate as possible, glad to know I succeeded.
Cutscenes with the head sprites are definitely on my todo list, I'm probably going to do that once I implement all the weapons (plus the ability to throw them of course). Or maybe I'll implement doors first, I dunno.

AI is still doom-like, right?

Yes and no, it's still a bunch of A_Chase calls, so nothing crazy, but it's called more often so the AI is a little more erratic than usual.

This is truly beautiful. I can help out with graphics if I get the time.
(Also I wanna make a mod for it when it's done :D)

This is amazing. And i agree with Zeberpal: there should be a multiplayer version. As you know, some people would love a multiplayer Hotline miami, be it cooperative or deathmatch, and it's something the base game does not have. You would end up getting, in my opinion, a really, really good response.

Sorry, i had totally not seen the deathmatch video. It looks awesome.
Of course, try to keep the map tights and with a good flow of play, and be able to see the enemy, to make it even more awesome. That's important!

Unfortunately, I think it is quite impossible to make "HM port for multiplayer" for now. The thing is, this modification requires latest GZD build, so there is no point of talking about to port it to Zandronum, which does have a large multiplayer-orientated playerbase , but it is also outdated as hell for mod like this. Where else then, Gdzoom P2P multiplayer? heh

Believe it or not, the mod runs perfectly (offline) in Zandronum 4.0. It doesn't work online though because Warp doesn't work online yet.
The mod can also be made to run in Zandronum 3.0 with minimal effort
