[v1.0.0] ARGENT - The Streamlined Doom 4 Mod

Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

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

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

we're planning to add items? or item sounds atleast
i assume the newer and fancier muzzleflashes are already filed under 'to be added'
and zombies should perhaps use the new weapon sounds too?
also enemies use their regular death sound when gibbed

weapons are good tho
as dinky as the pistol is supposed to be, it's still got the right amount of oomph to it

Any chance you're gonna add some of the alt-fires to the guns?

Indeed. I'm tempted to start a "wall of shame" somewhere if this keeps up. :P

Fark. Probably my bad then since I'm not exactly the clearest writer. Sorry there D:

In other news, I've been pushing small updates to GitHub and may have another minor (well... patch) release shortly once some other things are settled. Huzzah quasi-real development!

It's pretty impressive how great this actually plays considering how you've decided not to go the flashy-fancy-shmancy way, what with no gun recoil or zoomed in weapon frames (not to badmouth other D44M mod developers out there at all) and yet still manage to capture that same essence the actual weapons in the new Doom withhold, they feel so punchy without being necessarily in-your-face and/or overty loud (again, no underlining intended).

something I'm personally dying to see though would be actual mods for the weapons, and since I know you're planning on getting onto those (not just from what I gather on the OP alone but from footdiving into the files in SLADE as well :P) I have no concerns at all about where you're going with this and I know I won't be let down. Mightiest of luck! :D

played it and it was good, interestingly good. even though some of the sound effects are kinda underpowered unlike firing ones. such as shotgun and super shotgun reloading sound and bfg exploding sound.

also HMG and chaingun always fires horizontally, and plasma rifle's projectile sound effect is does not exist. just plays good ol' vanilla doom projectile sound.

...oh who am i kidding, it doesn't need any Uber-Realism after all! so i'm kinda fine with that. and thanks for the another doom 4 mod for doom!

Unfortunately the mac version of gzdoom isn't up to date with the Windows version, so I can't try this yet. Looks cool, though!

Thanks for the compliments, folks! Glad it seems to be hitting the spot.

While I'm here, I've uploaded a new version, v0.1.1, which fixes the rocket radius and adds a fun little feature: a "Monsters Always Gib" CVAR for the less-sane folk out there. :P

Note that I don't quite plan on re-editing the first post for every patch version release. I'll start editing the thread title though, just to make it a small bit clearer.

Could you make this compatible with GZDoom?

It's compatible, but you should download the latest version.

I noticed there is a new difficulty mode: Man and a half.

How is it different than Ultra-Violence and Nightmare?
