Struggle : Antaresian Legacy

Postby antares031 » Sun Jun 24, 2018 12:35 am

Struggle : Antaresian Legacy is a single-player partial-conversion megawad for Doom 2 with limit removing compatibility. It features new weapon and monster replacements, edited with DeHacked patch. Some of original monsters are also slightly changed, so it's recommended to check out the info below before you play this one. Since this wad uses heavily modified DeHacked patch, it is recommended not to use other custom gameplay patches. Also, par time of each level is based on UV-Max playthrough, not UV-Speed.

The current version is Release Candidate 1. After three years of the announcement, this wad has finally become a full megawad with new 32 levels. Before I celebrate myself, I want to thank everyone who helped me to make my very first full megawad. This something that I really wanted to achieve, since I made my very first Doom level, back in 2006.

Very cool looking maps! I'm only a few levels in but I'm having a lot of fun with it.

I find the weapon sprites a bit irksome. The grainy, low res photorealism aesthetic seems to clash with the look of the levels and the enemies, however, the tweaks to the weapon mechanics and monster behaviour give it a new edge to keep players on their toes and I can look past the quality of the sprites.

Will be playing more of this in future. Congrats on releasing your first megawad!

Right, I've heard from some players that they're not a fan of custom weapon sprites. Someone even suggested to separate the weapon sprites as an optional graphic PWAD. But what I wanted to implement to my megawad was the custom weapon sprites of my own, made with the way id software did; taking some photographs of toy guns. Obviously my graphic-editing skill wasn't good enough to satisfy most of people. But for me, at least it was worth to try. :D

I wonder if there's a way to convert photographs to doom graphic sprites, with much better art-style than the current one. Anyway, thanks for playing, and have fun with the rest of the wad. :)

The struggle is strong on this one.

Good work, antares.

(also why the super shotgun is the only weapon that is not photographed (save for the hands))

Unfortunately, I don't have a double-barreled shotgun in my house. It's kinda hard to find that one in here. :(

Really digging this so far. Liking the new viewmodels and how everything is paced out.

I'm trying to find this again, but there's a company that makes knock off Nerf guns that makes a double barreled shotgun. You could paint that black and you'd be good to go.

Sadly, it's also difficult to find an airsoft super shotgun in my country. I've searched the local toy gun websites, and all I can find is the one with 400,000 KRW price tag, which is about 360 USD. :(

To Be Honest, This is the one of really good megawads ive played so far..
even tho i wasn't born in the 90's era, i makes me feel like im in that era, since you use dehacked instead of decorate..
i really recommend this to anyone to play :3
keep up the good work mate <3

It would be cool to see the version of weapon sprites with vanilla hands, I do not know why, but for me personally these hands do not fit in a bit

Gotta say, the map design in this is downright stupendous. I really like the revamped weapons, but the unchanged SSG is admittedly slightly jarring, although I understand why it's the way it is. One tiny thing that slightly bugs me due to personal taste alone, is the chaingun replacement seems to fire wayyyyyy the hell faster than a pair of pistols should. Anyways, fantastic megawad all around, and I really hope I get to see more by you!!

Will there ever be a non-dehacked version? I'd like to play this with mods.

Try using a buzz bee double shot, those always do the trick. Also, some of the weapon sounds are louder than others.
