Wow, it's really good! I'm really feeling that music :D
Just a few things... Maybe it would be a good idea if it cut to the action right after the toilet part, and that you not show the imp in there, just so people can figure it out themselves :D
Other than that, it's awesome

There is a bug i found in the latest release. The Hp bar won't show up, but the rest of the hud do. I have the latest GZdoom version(Stable, that is).

Very nice. It captures pretty much exactly the mood of the mod. My only reservations are that it almost acts as a spoiler for the first "shock" of the monsters appearing in the bathroom but it's not a total give away and, perhaps, I might have included something from the 'plane or the crash (if I had the skills to do it in the first place). However, it really gives a good feel of what CAH is like.

Don't suppose you fancy doing something similar for a little mod set on a beach and railway line near Burghead do you? ;)

What software do you use?

Cool trailer, the last clip "available now, see description for link" might be a bit too long though :P

I actually DID include something from the plane and the crash, at the beginnig, but because the plane's so dark now, you can't really see the clip well.

Uh-oh, now you're requesting one? :P
Gee, which mod? :P

Everything was compiled together in Cyberlink Powerdirector, fancy text effects were done in Vision Lab Studio.

Done intentionally because longer videos = higher quality on youtube. I wish I knew why they did that, it's so annoying when you upload a 100 MB 1:35 long trailer and a 120 MB 4:17 trailer and the 4:17 one looks godly in comparison.

And just to address my view on the whole toilet issue...Who here hasn't actually played CAH already? Who doesn't know that's coming from a mile away?
While there's still a few that haven't, no doubt, those that haven't would still figure out what they'll be fighting from the rest of the trailer anyway, will they not?

I've only just made it to the central hub myself, but I am enjoying it so far (bit hard, but oh well) and will probably play through to the end if it keeps a similar style.

No, it isn't possible to kill them without cheating. They're flagged as invulnerable to damage at the beginning of the level.

I'll leave the other stuff, since it's pretty minor. The imp bug is actually due to how the "ressurrecting imps" are handled.

Out of curiosity, where was that sky tree in MAP02? I can't seem to reproduce it or find where it would actually be.

@Bouncy: I'll check out the trailer once I'm somewhere I can see Youtube.

@doomhunter: You don't have the GZDoom alternate HUD enabled, do you? If so, that is an intentional feature so the HP bar doesn't obscure the GZDoom HUD letters. If I had to guess, I'd say you've got the alternate HUD enabled and you maximized the screen so the letters dissappear. Either turn it off from the options or make it so you can see the GZDoom HUD and you should be fine.

@Phobus: Yep, the game style is pretty similar throughout.

@Arch: It's a bug in the ACS. Whoo, another upload! Still, nothing game-breaking so I'll put it up today.

See my screenshot? See the numbers in the top right corner? That's the exact location I was standing when I took the screenshot. The only thing not recorded is the view angle. (ie I had IDMYPOS active).

To go immediately to that location, start the map, open the console and type warp X Y where X and Y are the X and Y coords shown in the screenshot. I'm not sure because the "keys" graphic obscures it slightly but that would be something like warp -1265 -1122 in this case.

All righty, and we're good to go. I had a minute at work, so I managed to get an upload slot on idgames with the final final version. If it weren't for the bleeding bug, I would've told you all to shove it ( :wink: ), but it's like 5 minutes to fix a gameplay-fucking-up bug and the stuff you pointed out, Enjay. :) Ty probably thinks I'm out of my fucking gourd by now, this being the fourth upload of this mod.

Now back to the exciting world of insurance.

Download manager, start your engines... ;)

Fourth upload to idgames? I think compared to the version upload frenzy that Beautiful Doom went through in recent weeks that's small change. :)

Yeah, well, considering CAH is about 50 megs... :)

True. Beautiful Doom would have to be uploaded something like 13 times for every one of your uploads. ;)
