Re: Aracnocide V5 [28/10/18] Back to Zandronum!

Post by Dr_Cosmobyte »

Hey my guys, here's another update for this weekend!

Moved by 80's music, Coffee Coke and ANGER for testing the new stuff in Plutonia, i decided to upload this new file! The changelog is here as always, but the best things you can expect are a new weapon for Stella (pistol upgrade), stats display when a weapon is upgraded, an item that converts upgrade kits into backpacks (in case you already did all possible upgrades), more lore stuff, and Aracnocide can be played on Zandronum again! (with some warnings, but it can) =p
Spoiler:
Have fun and a nice weekend!

This is because the mask sound is played on the "time stop" channel, which is kinda distinct from the others. I don't think i can solve it.
Someone64 wrote:Also, may I request that you be more generous with ammo but only for the main mod? And maybe give the standalone monster mod ammo pickups at low frequency of drops (like sometimes enemies won't drop ammo). As it stands, playing through Doom II is EXTREMELY hard usually due to lack of ammo and playing through a lot of community wads that rely on enemies to give you ammo from drops is nigh impossible. In general there should be ways more ways of obtaining ammo if you want to retain the same ammo pickup sizes as playing on the lowest difficulty for more ammo is WAY too easy.
I raised some bits in this update but i'll consider making better drops in the future.

God knows how this was indeed needed.

Just gave this mod a try, and am liking what I see so far! I just have a few questions, though...

*Will the Ammo display be remade to fit the new HUD style?
*Will Ammo and Inventory Status be moved closer to the right edge of the screen, to account for wider aspect ratios (i.e. 16:10, 16:9, 21:9)?

It is, my good friend! Take your time and enjoy the mod! Giving the author some feedback after playing the mod might be helpful-

Speaking of future bugfixes, your bullet impact sprites have that minor black-border problem again.

I've been playing for a while and I do not see any mistakes or similar things, everything is fine but I'll continue testing it to see what I find

My luck must be bad, no matter how many backpacks I find I haven't gotten a single upgrade box yet. :D

Damn right it's low. It took until level 14 of Whispers Of Satan to get two upgrade boxes and I was lucky enough to get them in the same level and secret area, and Whispers Of Satan basically throws Backpacks at you. :shock:

I was disappointed I couldn't upgrade Marion's shotgun-pistol though, but at least the upgraded SMG and Light Pistol made up for it.

EDIT: Also, I've noticed that even if you're full on ammo, you'll still pick-up dropped enemy guns in the weapon's only mod.

Found another bug, but I think it's with the mapset. When playing Epic 2, the weapon that spawns in the third level's Super Shotgun spawner is a vanilla Super Shotgun instead of the Arachnocide/Arachnocide Weapons Pack version.

Hey GAA, just some time ago I tried your latest version of Aracnocide and decided to express your opinion on this version but this opinion applies only to the version with weapons because I did not play the full version because I suffer from arachnoophobia but to the point, describe my feelings in terms of form:

Derrick Wolfe - Very nice character and has a lot of nice weapons, but I do not like that sprite character is a Ranger from Quake I, I think it should be a completely different sprite here

Blake Klieesen - Also a nice character and probably the most favorite, has a very good arsenal and I like the changed sprite rifles and their sounds, shooting with them is just a pleasure, only when it comes to chainsaw that I think it should be fueled like a flamethrower. As for the sprite of a character, I do not understand this procedure just like in the case of a sprite, the freedoom sprite is terrible in my opinion , but I do not understand why the doomguy is inserted in this form, I think the appearance of this character should be quite different.

Marion Callahan - In my opinion, a very good character and has a quite good arsenal, I do not have any more comments about her.

Stella Gibson - An interesting character and I think you've done well that you put a woman here, it adds a bit of variety and besides, it reminds me of Ellen Ripley a bit . This is an arsenal of very cool, sprite figures alright. :wink:

General mistakes which at least I have noticed so far, one that you can pick up weapons with ammunition from enemies even though you already have the maximum amount. I hope that my opinion will be helpful :wink:
