to help people understand ZScript more, I have released the ZScript under a very loose license - as long as you attribute copy/pasted code to me in some form I really don't give a toss what you do with it.

https://github.com/SanyaWaffles/ddrama1/

check ddrama1/zscript/ for the files. Alot of them are just DECORATE conversions, but you can see some immediate benefits such as functions instead of copy/pasting lines of DECORATE code.

I even included a practical example of the Duke 3D like bulk health kit, a very complex object relatively speaking.

Go nuts learning from this. I want to see what people can really do with ZScript, and while I suck at documenting (comments, I really tried commenting this and may go back and comment some more when the project is complete) I hope maybe it can help in some form.

Not to necro my own project/triple-post but I made a major change to this project, and fixed a bug that may make the mod unplayable with recent GZDoom versions.

I re-vamped the "RIP Sound Obituary" - you know, the thing that taunts you when you die. It's now done on the player pawn and is void of any calls to ACS. (As you can see, I'm not fond of ACS and try to remove it whenever I can).

I also have discovered a recent change to ZScript broke my code on the Trollbood Device - the compiler wanted an action keyword for the weapons' action functions. *shrug*

Downloads are in the usual place, but I also recently started mirroring on Dropbox again. I updated the main post with the relevant links.

To commemorate a year or so since Daytime Drama 1 was released, I provide a gigantic update

Standalone IPK3
WIGZDoom Latest Build + IPK3

The biggest thing? Voice acting. My friend Anna supplied a delightfully russian voice for Sanya (Sanya hails from a russian-esque realm in this universe). This voice will be featured in Daytime Drama 2 as well!

The other major update is the sound system for voice-overs have been tweaked (backported changes from Daytime Drama 2).

And there's a few misc. changes here and there.

If you haven't checked out Daytime Drama 1, or it's been a while since, now's the perfect time to try it!

During her stream of Daytime Drama, ZDoom user, friend and colleague Marisa found a bug. I have since fixed the bug with the end level victory music playing and crashing.

I also revamped the one-liner subsystem to be more robust and prevent against cutting off one-liners.

Marisa found some more bugs through her playthrough.
Some I can't fix through obvious means

https://www.dropbox.com/s/jrrrptgk7xf8p ... .ipk3?dl=1

Here's the URL to the IPK3 and here's the bugs:

  • Upon using the pepper powerup to recover from being morphed into a grub, the player cannot pick up items anymore. This didn't happen before. Does someone know how to fix this or is it an engine bug?
  • Also when using the pepper powerup and using the health pack, the game freezes and leaks memory it seems.


I fixed them. Thanks to Zhs2 for a more optimized version and to Marisa for finding these bugs.

Expect some more changes soon folks.

I tried loading this mod as an ipk3 file as intended. Had no idea that it is it's own IWAD in a sense, by the way. but when I loaded it with GZDoom 3.2.5(the latest version) I got this error message.

Script error, "ddrama.ipk3:cvarinfo.txt" line 2:
cvar 'dd_snd_oneliners' already exists


can someone help me? thanks.

It's a custom IWAD (for example doom.wad is The Ultimate Doom), since latest versions of GZDoom support it.

I've not seen this error before and can't reproduce it. Are you loading it as an -iwad and not a 'file' (just making sure).

EDIT: Also try dev builds and see if it fixes the problem.

New Version with tons of fixes!
  • Original VA's sound clips are now optional! Choose between Russian-esque Sanya and the Classic Sanya.
  • Got rid of the ugly customized menus
  • Fixed TBD not having proper raise/lower graphics based on mode
  • Un-nerfed despairium rifle. No longer needs to cool down per se. Coolant makes it go even faster though, with stronger shots!
  • Dialogue now is more straightforward. Thank you to FishyClockwork for helping with that.
  • Fixed some errors/glitches in various maps.
  • Final boss is nerfed a bit (on Discourse she was next to impossible to defeat)
  • Added some worldbuilding in MAP04. Use the posters.
  • Fixed a minor graphical issue with the dialogue menus.
