Samsara - No longer under active development.

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.

I would really rather not take out a popular and unique character to replace him with a glitchy, overpowered mess of a character.
I do like the idea of a Stealth character, but Strifeguy is quite a bit more than Stealth and is definitely not going to be included.

Sorry.

Well, Corvus can kill Imps with a crossbow.

with magic.

BTW, follow the rule if you could, rusty; do not bump the old-dated thread with useless suggestions by misreading or complimentig chit-chats but glitch report or OFFICAL NEWS.

Y'know... At least he had some input on the subject of the mod itself, as opposed to "Stop bumping!" It's ridiculous to see someone bump a topic for the sole purpose of yelling at someone for bumping the topic. You've managed to be more off-topic than the original "bump". Shame on you.

His arsenal could be quite good and unique after a significant overhaul... But by that point, why not find a character that fits the role already and requires less work? Besides, "significant overhaul" doesn't at all fit with the "mostly faithful" approach to the characters.

I can't think of an actual stealth character from an FPS that would be fitting. Even Hexen 2's Assassin wasn't that great at not being noticed. Just about any other character with a "stealthy" weapon only has one or two at most, and nothing else you could logically make less attention-getting. (I might manage to think of a good one later. Maybe.)

Besides, many megawad authors tend to specifically prevent you from trying to play stealthily or cautiously. :ninja:

Isn't it because the megawads are made for vanilla?

sounds reasonable why i was always personal reacted for nothing-special bumps, so i apogize. but still it's kinda makes me feel down-beat also disappointed because the bump was not a author's good...or bad news, though. dunno why, but seems it's my instinct.

All anyone here asks is that you learn from your mistakes, rather than defend them.

And now to go a bit more off-topic: After seeing Hyrule Warriors and how they're approaching Link as a combat unit, I can't help but think that's... almost exactly how I wanted to create a Link playerclass in Doom. S o basically if I ever get off my ass and actually make a Link playerclass I'll hop back here and ask how to better merge him with Samsara as an addon.

I was playing Deus Vult 2 with Samsara not too long ago, all by myself. BJ made some areas less frustrating thanks to Extra Lives and having a ripper weapon for all the massive imp battles. I've tried a Parias run before too.

Even with Doomseeker (with Zandronum, at any rate). Create Server, pick your wads, then play offline.

Thanks for the info guys, I was planing on playing it with ZDOOM, does it feature its own maps or I have to use a WAD?

No maps included. Bot you can use nearly any IWAD + PWAD combination you might like. Going through a Doom 2 megawad is as possible as going through a Hexen megawad.

Any word on how Prisoner 849 is coming along? Unreal's one of my all time favorite games, and I'd love to be able to play as her through a few Doom WADs

I'm getting this error whenever I try to load Samsara. Any suggestions?
