The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Re: [WIP] Psychic -- Beta #6, Holy Belgium, an update!

Post by Xaser »

Hey y'all, long heckin' time no post. :P

Thanks for the bugreports -- just got all the weird broken stuff fixed up so it all works in the latest GZDoom (borked buymenu, rippers not working, warnings n' stuff) and posted up a "Public Beta #6" release. Still all works in ZDoom 2.8.1, in case there's anyone around still using that.

Still not marking this v1.0 just yet since there's technically a couple of to-do items I'm being stubborn about, but maybe I ought to see about finally marking this damn project "done" at some point. :P

Wow, such foul language.

Jokes aside, it's pretty cool that you're making this unexpected comeback. Good reason for me to give this good ol' gem a spin once more.

The Gravity power's waves seem to no longer affect enemy projectiles. I recall from eras past that it worked on all of them except the revenant's guided rockets, which would aggressively course correct.

my bad, it only shoves projectiles at level 3. I guess I never noticed this before because Gravity was always the first thing I maxed out

When i played this mod for the first time, it was surprising enough to make me gawk at like, smooth animations, clean sound effects and functional shop interface. And boy am i glad to see this live again!
Spoiler: EDIT: I gave it a lengthy try with Doom 2 and beat 12 maps. And guess i have some things to point out.

Glad to see this get an update, has long been one of my favorite wads, since long, long before I decided I needed to be able to post to the forums. The only question I have, is are the weapons supposed to feel so dinky in Strife? I mean, should it take two direct hits with the Grenade Launcher, and sometimes more than one point-blank shotgun shot to drop the, low level, enemy that is the floating orb drone? The powers somewhat make up for the damage levels, but unlike guns, you can run low enough on Psychic Power that some of the larger engagements, like when you take the castle, are a drag to fight through. The damage booster and Psy Power booster you can get through the shop somewhat offset this, at the cost of delaying upgrades and/or acquiring new powers, but its still a weird balancing point of feeling like you're definitely stronger than Strifeguy, yet still feel underpowered, outside of small bursts of overkill.

oh snap shit it's v1.0.0 -- IT'S DONE NOW FINALLY

...well, -ish. I'm gonna leave it up for a bit and let folks try it before submitting to /idgames, and maybe there's still room for bugfixes and future stuff, but I'd very much like to stop calling this thing a WIP now. :D

Not a ton has changed since the last beta, but the crash Captain J pointed out should be fixed, I finally polished up the player sprites, and very pointedly did not replace the titlepic after all because turns out it's perfect. ;)

Thanks y'all for giving this ol' thing a go again :P

That titlepic is a work of art, it's for the best.
