How are they compared to the textures in Descent Maximum*?

* not played entirely through Maximum, it's a quasi-Descent 2 and may/may not have the whole texture set

Looking at Descent Maximum's data, it does seem like they included every texture present in Descent 2, but all of it appears to be in 4-bit color, like the original Descent PSX port. A lot of my stuff is squeezing >16 colors, so it seems this compares relatively favorably.

Edit: Here's a more direct comparison of an asset that suffered horribly in Descent 2, the player helix ball. Mine on top, Maximum's on bottom:

Both graphics are 16 color, so PSX wins out here, my algorithm wasn't able to guess the source colors well enough. I'll need to see if I can somehow incorporate this into my algorithm, but I'm not sure how I would.

also, unrelated edit, but if anyone downloaded InjectD3, I needed to put up a fixed version that actually includes the proper OpenAL Soft binary. Ooops

[EDIT] easily reskinnable too, can be any colour you want (the third image]

Complete overhaul of the system menu. This is all MENUDEF, not ZForms or any other third party library. :)

That looks cool: nice and original, clear and simple. It looks both modern (with the highlighting etc) and retro at the same time. Nice job.

Wait wait wait, all in MENUDEF?
I swear I thought it was all ZScriptified. :shock:

Well, I mean, the widgets are indeed all ZScript. The menus are still defined inside MENUDEF, but the menu class and the widgets are heavily modified (here's an example of one of the menus):

Code:

OptionMenu 
"ElderJamDisplayOptions"
{
    Class 
"ElderJamOptionMenu"
    
Position -128
    Title 
"$ELDERTXT_MNU_DISPLAY"

    
ElderJamSubmenu "$ELDERTXT_MNU_VIDEOMODE",                "ElderJamVideoMode"
    
ElderJamSlider "$ELDERTXT_MNU_GAMMA",                    "vid_gamma",        0.753.00.052
    ElderJamSlider 
"$ELDERTXT_MNU_BRIGHTNESS",                "vid_brightness",    -0.8,0.80.05,2
    ElderJamSlider 
"$ELDERTXT_MNU_CONTRAST",                "vid_contrast",           0.13.00.1
    ElderJamSlider 
"$ELDERTXT_MNU_SATURATION",                "vid_saturation",      -3.03.00.252
    ElderJamStaticText 
""
    
ElderJamStaticText "$ELDERTXT_MNU_ENHANCEMENTS"
    
ElderJamSeperator
    ElderJamOption 
"$ELDERTXT_MNU_TEXFILTER",                "gl_texture_filter",    "FilterModes"
    
ElderJamOption "$ELDERTXT_MNU_SHADOWMAP",                "gl_light_shadowmap",    "YesNo"

ElderJamOption "$ELDERTXT_MNU_FXAA",                     "gl_fxaa",                "FXAAQuality"
    
ElderJamOption "$ELDERTXT_MNU_BLOOM",                     "gl_bloom",                "OnOff"
    
ElderJamOption "$ELDERTXT_MNU_CA",                         "gl_lens",                "OnOff"

Oh, I see.
I really should research more into the topic of ZScript MENUDEF extensions, as that could help with something I'm working on.

Hello everyone, there have been no screenshots and vidos from me for a long time. I show you this creation: VactionBackup.
A bit of history:
Doom Vacation is a set of maps converted from the Duke Vacation add-on. Maps numbered 5, 6 and 7 were not transferred for quite clear reasons - everything was done at a time when such things as 3D floors / decorate were quite rare and more than half of the chips simply would not have worked in the game ...
In the video, the last, 7th map, a new chip is demonstrated - an imitation of water from Duke 3d. So far, it is a test one, but it turned out to be combined into a simple practical script with three parameters. If it works fine in multiplayer, then it opens up enough space for imagination without using the dumb system with the TransferHeights action.
You can easily make different geometry "above" and "under" water and all this without portals, which makes it possible to make maps for zandronum.

So yeah I've been slowly working on my first ever mod which is a Weapon Gameplay mod. It's going to be a Doomguy version of a Bolter. I need your help with something and this is the UAAF logo. Under trivia section is pretty much a concept and never made... But! I came up with some things check it out!



Tell me what you guys think :-D if you want a png version without the white let me know.

"Update I also made this "

For my new Avatar and I put it on my gun
