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

This looks really cool. Would these brightmaps ultimately be used in place of the ones that come with BrutalDoomSE? I realize that these aren't for brutal doom yet but i'm thinking at some point they'll be adapted?

Thanks, but these brightmaps are for software renderer. I don't play Brutal Doom but I'm pretty sure it's for OpenGl renderer and there are already quality brightmaps available for OpenGL (Z86's pack http://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=29792) and these are better than mine will ever be because I have to work with the restrictions software renderer imposes.

Also a big THANKS to both Nash and Zombie Killer for helping with code optimization! Your suggestions will be implemented in the next update.

Very nice one !
Here's a tip:
Using the flag WARPF_COPYINTERPOLATION instead of WARPF_INTERPOLATE makes things MUCH smoother (including shooting a cacodemon away with a rocket and watching it aside).

Oh and that method is a nice find but there are some side effects:

Thanks. And damn it, I've been playing with either the original doom status bar or the doom64 one so long I forgot that Zdoom's hud uses that sprite. I'll be fixing that too for the next update.

This is badass. This would look really cool in something like the PSX TC. But on something unrelated, do you have a link for the D64 HUD?

Yes, but that's not the one I'm using. I ripped mine from D64Stuff.pk3

Using the latest version on the first post, when I type IDFA, I only get weapons up to the rocket launcher. The plasma rifle and BFG does not get added. :S

Oh, that is serious. I forgot to define the weapon slot for my plasma rifle and BFG replacement... Hotfix coming up.

Edit: There we go. Bug fixed. Thanks Nash for reporting.

Alright, weapons seem to be fixed! However, another bug:

The blue skull key looks wrong. :O (Saw this in DOOM 2 MAP25, rooms to the left of the start area)

Sorry to keep pestering you with this stuff. XD

A mod author's life is a hard one :P. Alas, I cannot understand this because I haven't touched the blue key with my mod at all. I will see if I get any anomalies with it when playing.

Edit: Oh for crying out loud. I named my lost soul brightmaps BSKUL ... I wasn't even thinking about it. Such idiocy on my part!
Edit #2: Anyway it's just a cosmetic bug, your blue key will look like a lost soul :P... fixing will have to wait at least until tomorrow. Because it will involve renaming my brightmaps and I am just to lazy to go through it now.

Probably the lump names you used for the Lost Soul brightmap pieces are the same as the blue skull's. That's the immediate thing I can think of.
