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.

Just want to mention that Tekwar used digitized actors, but I don't know if there's anything that would work with the ROTT sprites.

I wonder what the original maps could look like if remastered like this... hmm...
well... I've already done map1 from the shareware version [HUNT begins] - its going to be one of the secret levels...

This look wonderful. Will this be usable with other maps? It would be nice to play other wads with ROTT weapons and enemies.

One of them looks just like Edward Norton. Maybe he'd be funny to use somewhere.

Yep, most definately have pushwalls, and those lavawalls in that pic even hurt you if you run into them, just like the original...

Exaclibat is in, pretty much everything from rott except the bosses.

Easy! Wanderwalls == PloyObjects. You can even do burning walls with "player bumps" activators on the lines. :D

"Release the gas!" "Here, catch!" "BAROOOOOOOOOOOOO!" "Bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah."

Yeah, I've played around with ROTT a little. :lol:

No need to. Use thing 9303 for the poly start spots.

ahh but that's the thing 9903 only hurts you if you are in it's path, not the sides. ie if the polyobject is moving west, and then you bump into it from the south it doesn't hurt you.

NeuralStunner's way was exactly the way I did it, with playerbump. I also used TransferWallLight to make sure they are bright, just like ROTT.

It's all been pretty straightfoward actually getting ROTT stuff into ZDoom.

I'll post some more vids or pics later, thanks for all the interest!

That's only happens when you gibbing a enemy.
(Direct-hit with rocket wepaons/dark staff/bark blast on dog mode etc. Because original game did that too.)
But in original ROTT, it only appears when you're closely that gibbed target. And you may see his
broke hand too. :p

This mod is cool, I love ROTT, so I will try it when it released. :D

I'm so glad this is being made... I actually thought of doing this myself. ROTT is due for a remake if you ask me. Though it would never be as great as the original. :)
