The Return of the Triad [TC] - some guy bumped this again

Projects that have specifically been abandoned or considered "dead" get moved here, so people will quit bumping them. If your project has wound up here and it should not be, contact a moderator to have it moved back to the land of the living.

Almost fell from chair due to laughter at 2:45 with the "La Dee Da"s! xDD Ingenious, man. You'll bring back a true classic. High five for this!

I know it's OT but since there seems to be a little ROTT love in this thread I just thought I'd let you guys know that the ROTT forum is open again. It's pretty quiet at the moment but I'm trying to inject a little life into this gem of a game. Please share your ROTT love/mods here:

Hopefully, some of you guys'll turn up. :)

This just looks better and better. Between this and Killian Reed and I'm a pretty excited chappy!

Is there an ETA yet? I am so looking forward to this. Also, do you think it's possible to convert the original levels into a WAD that this mod could use? I vaguely remember some tool that was supposed to convert Wolf maps to Doom WADs. Is something similar doable for this? I can't tell you how cool it would be to play the original levels looking this good... :)

ROTT's map format was an extension of Wolf3D's, so it should be possible.

As much as i loved this mod and cant wait to see it come out i also thought that would you be able to make it so that the weapons can be used to just play doom? instead of it only being compatible with the mod itself?

if you where able to do this then i would simply rate it as the best weapon mod ever :D

Given the countless mods that already use Rise of the Triad's graphics and sounds (albeit not perfectly recreating the game's arsenal), I'd honestly wonder what the hell the point is. I say just let 'em make a kickass TC and worry about that later.

jeez I dunno about converting the maps, you could go ROTT>>WOLF3D>>DOOM but I dunno if there's a converter that does RTL to WAD.

ETA: before christmas. (I hope)

Because I'm using rott's palette it wouldn't really work for doom, if someone wants to use the decorate code and convert the gfx, they're welcome to after it's released.

Yeah, it was the RTL to WAD thing that caused me doubt. I suppose after release this may be a catalyst for someone with the know-how to create such a tool.

Oh, and releasing for Christmas would make a fine present! *crosses fingers and writes letter to Santa...* I actually saw the ETA on your blog but I was unsure how up to date that info was - thanks for responding civilly! :)

If people are wondering what the progress of this project is, my harddrive has fucked out, so I lost about 1 months work on this, when I get a new one, ill probably try and finish this up. :(
