what is the biggest features from the original game that would be impossible to port over to GZDoom? and is there any hacky solutions to compensate for them?

A fun fact/consideration of mine: the original STUFF.dat of PowerSlave (and not Exhumed, I'm european, don't know if it's different) has the weapon inside (obviously I'm referring of an .art lump like Duke3d ones) but it seems to lack of some more sprite anims IMOH, but when I played the game so far (it was 2000) I had no visual problems too.
So there seems to be that Powerslave developers have used weapon anims tricks like our actual beloved z-gzdoom ones. :cool:

BTW I really hope that Re-Exhumed will be released because it seems to be a superb TC / fresh iWAD. Just awaiting it greedily. :-)

Amun Mines are identical to the grenades.

Console Exhumed = Amun Mines

PC Exhumed = Grenades

It was in the PC version, so yes.

Err... Junky controls? Lives system? No manual saves? The ability to play video files?..

since he didn't explained about these, i'll do it; i think he meant awkward controls, extra life system, no saving the game manually and ability to play videos, cutscenes or something. and although i'm a korean who knows english little bit, but i couldn't understand, too.

Yeah but he's right that's one of the things that turned me away from PS on DosBox because of the controls, and the cutscenes wont be missed, and if he really wanted to he could recreate them with camera script and sprites, but it's not big loss, most old games you'd need the CD in to see the cutscenes so we usually lived without.

Amun Mines exploded on impact, and you could "Mine Jump" with them, so they were a bit different, not identical.

So I played through this, the first then minutes were entirely made up of "Whoa, that's so cool!". Though I will say that ammo seemed a bit scarce and melee range was a bit finicky. If it was like that in the original, fair enough.

I was looking around and found some amazing egyptian models in Turbosquid a online 3d model shop.Check this model of anubis !
http://www.turbosquid.com/3d-models/3d- ... tue/783397

Now texturing it and animating it realistically its another matter as it needs a lot of work.

Yes sadly those models are commercial but its not like exhumed has that many different enemies models...Probably 50% of enemies in the pc version are consisted of the anubis model so why not have a great looking one ?

cool models, I guess models could be used for some of the decorations like he did with the trees, but they have to look pretty close to the original, plus there would be an option to turn them on or off, but that's not something to think about right now, perhaps at the end.

I think that for the modesl stuff MaxED must take a look into Serious Sam ones, expecially First Encounter, while I don't know how they could be extracted from resources, too.
