Seriously, you have all the resources of the original at your disposal. Maybe, to avoid confusion, you could give it another contra-sh names. We always had fun naming off other names on IRC...

A the Action Adventure
Neo Action
Action Doom: The Alien Wars
Action Force
Action Doom: Hard Corps
Action Doom: Legacy of War
Super A

I think the most important thing to do is make sure you don't have boring cutscenes or anything long the player must sit through. If you can... this is what I wanted to do with the first AD but lacked the ability... Using hud gfx, put 3 heart shapes in the corner... every hit you take gets rid of one. When you run out, you die. That would be better than 1 hp and respawn.

Couldn't you just increase the player's health to 3 and make sure every monster's attack was 1?

He could have at least updated it, and maybe put in the things he wanted to do in Action Doom, but never got around to it.

OMG?
WTF?
BBQ?

Sykes, how many times have I told you, when posting screenies of levels... TURN DOWN YOUR GAMMA CORRECTION! Gamma ruins the maps as far as I'm concerned.

And btw, why are you using screenies from one of my older maps for Forsaken? Make your own map! (I sympathise with the zdoom community on their opinion on the skybox, it was a very quick job.)

Ooh, if Furry found out about this he would give you a right royal ear bashing...

And for those who WANT to believe this is Cory's work, check out http://www.freewebs.com/forsakendoom and go to the authors section. See just what he has done to the wad.

Damn, that doesn't look like an Action Doom 2 either :(

:P

Any more on that project? All I can find on the site is a screenshot of that one room with the crates...

The plot thickens!

But yeah, if there was going to be another Action Doom, it would need three things: MOAR WEAPONS!, MOAR LEVELS! and, most importantly, MOAR ACTION! And yeah, a fancy scripted heart counter for the health would be awesome, too. So the player doesn't get stuck with one heart after fumbling around, health packs randomly dropped by monsters might be cool, or even Contra styled item drop containers! You could just give the player 3 health and make enemy attacks do 1 damage, but that just wouldn't be as awesome.

if u really want to make a sequel to action doom...

use the same kinda gameplay!! (bullet projectiles & stuff) tough some things could be edited of course...

your map looks bold and stuff, (even if its stolen) look at action doom1, and play the maps...
use the same kind of action in your maps too... (exploding buildings, all hell broken loose, mutated aliens)

and still make stuff kinda realistic... (in a city you would see cars and people,in a lab there would be scientists and experiments and so on.)

And Of course!!! cool Zdoom features and stuff :D

otherwise... Screw the name, and forget about it to be a "action doom 2"

IMO!! :P

Okay make your own maps like a good little boy.

And most DOOM maps wouldn't work with the Action Doom style anyway. Action Doom maps would just be shooting, avoiding obsticles, and going in a one-way path, only going another way if another choice presents itself, usually going somewhere else that leads to a point the first way went.

I really can't think of any other DOOM maps that do that.

Really, though, now I'm thinking Action Doom 2 should be a community project, though, because you clearly seem incapable of mapping.

Eeesh if your going to make an action doom 2 it wouldn't really be much of an action doom unless you make it the same gameplay as in the first one.

ugly retextured versions of a stolen level, ripped sprites, and not a single thing that has anything to do with action Doom.
Yep, this project is going nicely. Especially since the guy making it can't be assed to make his own level.
