Tired, sorry...

Rephrasing...........

I had forgotten to mention... this really brings me back to the time when I first played Doom. As in, the Ultimate Doom (I had played Doom II first). It gives me an awesome nostalgic feeling I haven't had in a long time, which is why I was really torn about what I wanted to say when I initially tried it out. I'm sorry if I hadn't expressed that properly initially.

I already said almost exactly that, months ago. Was completely ignored.

The difference, in my opinion, is that you're at least being polite about it. In the end, it's ultimately the project author's decision whether to listen to advice, but I really don't feel that being rude (like DoomKrakken's pre-edit post was) really does anything to help get something like this fixed.

I had initially phrased it in a more negative way, because my exhaustion clouded my better judgement. I didn't mean to phrase it the way I had initially phrased it.

Let us stop beating this dead horse already. The KEYCONF edit is a very easy fix, and I can at least play this with Trailblazer. So, we're all good. :)

EDIT: Alright, I just finished it. MAN, that was one of the awesomest experiences in the history of... EVER.

Dude, doz be sum maaaad mappin' skillz. Thank you for this!

Whoa, can't believe there was a mini post battle going on. Thank you Wild Weasel for keeping the peace :)

Anyway, to answer questions or concerns:

@Janus3003 - For your question regarding if the project is in the final release stage, it's close to that point; we're closing in on the finish line :). The project can be taken out of the beta stage and moved into the polishing stage. Of course with this, it's just to do a once over to make sure we cover everything and then we can wrap things up and get it ready to release onto id games. If you come across anything else that should be looked at, by all means, let me know. Thank you again for your help.

@DoomKrakken & Ed the Bat - Guys, I'm very much aware about the KEYCONF being depricated. Ed has mentioned it multiple times in the TOTLM threads. I appreciate your suggestions regarding that I should define the player classes via MAPINFO but I am more comfortable using KEYCONF since it is easier for me to keep track of what is where in the lump files. I apologize if it is an inconvenience in some way, especially regarding weapon wads, but I would really appreciate that you respect my decision on how I compile my projects. Thank you.

Map05C: You can grab the blue key early by jumping onto the ridge on the outside of the bars.
Map name "Down Town" should be "Downtown"
The intermission text after Downtown has both "UAC" and "U.A.C." Also, there's a typo- "some the U.A.C's files" should be "some of the UAC's"

Edit
Just finished playing through it again, and I didn't have any further issues. Only finishing touch I would add is to replace the menu's Doom II icon with the Tribute Project's.
Again, great work on this! It's been a lot of fun.

Hey guys, Happy New Year! The newest version of DOOM Tribute is available!

@Janus3003 - Nice catch on MAP05C; I would have missed that completely :) Everything is good to go for the Read Me screens and I did replace the M_DOOM graphic to show "DOOM Tribute." If everything is a go, I will prepare DOOM Tribute for the id Games archive. Thank you again for your assistance. :)

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been on in some time. If DOOM Tribute is good to go, let me know and I'll upload it to id Games.

@armymen12002003 - There isn't a secret level unfortunately but there is in fact a small easter egg. On MAP05B, on the outskirts of the Starport's exterior walls, there's something outside the hangar. Behind the metal wall that lowers at the end of the level, if you go on ghost mode, go over the wall, make a right, and then when you walk along the wall, make a sharp right at the end and there is a little surprise. I left the boss brain there; while I was working on that level, I didn't have any other way to exit the map so I used that as a temporary exit mechanism. :)

@armymen12002003 - The blood mod I'm using is my own personal script. I used the same script in TOTLM3 and I'm currently using it for TOTLM4. If you would like to use this in a project you may be working on, by all means, you may use it. :)

By the way guys, I'll be uploading Doom Tribute to id Games this month. I was meaning to do this last week but I was a bit under the weather. I will be having free time in the middle of February so I'll probably be uploading it by then. If any of you do find anything that needs to be looked at, please tell me ASAP.

@Janus3003 - Nice catch, man! You got one hell of a sharp eye. I took care of that plus I actually found something else on that level, too. This certainly is a coincidence but I also found that I forgot to put in the player 2,3, & 4 starts. Fortunately Slough of Despair was the only level that had those missing. Interesting how one issue that was found lead to another issue that needed to be dealt with as well. In any case, those issues have been fixed and I think we are good to go. Great work, Janus; thank you again.

A new version of Doom Tribute is available on the first page.
