Action Doom 2: Urban Brawl Reloaded

Postby Scuba Steve » Tue Aug 10, 2021 6:31 pm



It’s time for action! The original first-person beat-em-up is back and punching above its weight. Urban Brawl has been remastered for 2021; the same great mod you remember now features a host of quality-of-life updates, bug-fixes and graphical enhancements. Urban Brawl: Reloaded is available now, but first, what’s new in this rerelease?

Features

  • Time to up the ante – Urban Brawl now features a robust set of fighting mechanics which were not possible with ZDoom in 2008. Unleash a devastating new uppercut on your enemies, slam the ground to give yourself some breathing room, or grab your foes and toss them into one another.
  • It ain’t easy being GZ – Urban Brawl has been completely overhauled to take advantage of modern hardware acceleration. Originally released for ZDoom, Urban Brawl: Reloaded runs properly in Vulkan and OpenGL—no more software hacks!
  • Don’t have time to play with myself – Fire up GZDoom or Zandronum and play competitively or cooperatively. Urban Brawl is multiplayer compatible. While GZDoom is the preferred port, Zandronum is available for those looking for an online experience with client-server capabilities. Join three other friends and punch, kick, and bash your way through the Urban Brawl co-op campaign or merceless bludgeon them in deathmatch in one of these Zandronum servers: [TSPG] Action Doom 2: Urban Brawl co-op Hard : [TSPG] Action Doom 2: Urban Brawl Survival Hard : [TSPG] Action Doom 2: Urban Brawl Deathmatch
  • Back on track – Brawl-out to new music by the original composer, Ralphis.
  • So two thousand and late – In addition to new mechanics, you’ll also enjoy ultra-widescreen compatible cutscenes, visually retouched maps, and a brand new boss encounter replacing the often maligned topical humor from the mid 2000s!
  • An inside snow-job – Dead of Winter has also been updated to work properly and is now included with the base game.

Very cool. I did not expect to see a re-release.

I am experiencing a couple of problems though.

On startup, I can see the following messages:
Code: Select allExpand view
Resolved self-referencing texture by picking an older entry for BARK25
Resolved self-referencing texture by picking an older entry for BARK24
Resolved self-referencing texture by picking an older entry for TUBEP0
Resolved self-referencing texture by picking an older entry for CLOUDS4
Resolved self-referencing texture by picking an older entry for F_ACES


and once the game actually starts, there is a message getting spammed to the screen (and console):
Code: Select allExpand view
MAP01 - Streets of Rage: It's time for Action

ACS: 'INTRO6': Unknown actor class.
ACS: 'INTRO6': Unknown actor class.
ACS: 'INTRO6': Unknown actor class.

ACS: 'INTRO6': Unknown actor class.

and it just keeps spamming.

This was with GZDoom 4.6.1

To add to Enjay's posts: those are warnings that are only revealed when 'developer 2' is turned on.

Is this something that casual developers should be worried about? If it's hidden behind a unique mode, it seems to imply it's not a big problem?

I forget what the exact differences between the developer modes are, but

developer 0 shows none of these messages
developer 1 shows the ACS warning
developer 2 shows the startup and the ACS warning.

Certainly a few people around here run with the developer modes on (I always run with developer mode 2).

The startup messages usually mean that you have a patches that have the same name as the texture that they are in and that the patch is not in the patch namespace. However, in this case I looked at BARK25 and can't see any obvious difference between it and several other textures that are also made up of patches of the same name as their texture but which do not cause warning message. To be fair, I didn't look that deeply. Perhaps they are referenced elsewhere as well?

However, I don't think those startup messages are too problematic (mostly looking a bit untidy to people who run with dev mode 2), especially if the textures concerned look OK in game.

However, the constant spamming of the ACS message strikes me as it could potentially be an issue because it seems to indicate a script that is running repeatedly and not finding what it is meant to be looking for.

This seems like a failure of GZDoom... if something is going to lead to problems... it shouldn't be hidden behind a developer mode.

So... this new Reloaded version of Action Doom 2 has new sounds, replacing the YMCA bosses with the DJ Boss and renaming the Purple Prizm to the Purple Polygon.

Among the more important changes which includes different combat mechanics allowing you to throw enemies, uppercut them into each other, kick people down while holding melee weapons, and doing a desperation ground pound to hurt everyone around you.

Also, MAP02 received a significant visual overhaul... it was one of the first maps I made for the project and felt really dated.

Some Goon from deep in the backstreets might ask me: "Are you a bad enough dude to sweep through everybody trying to stop you and rescue your daughter?" And then my answer would be: "What, in Action Doom 2? Yeah, i always have."

It's been so long since i started to wait this to come out with significant improvement. I loved this TC so much but at the same time felt awkward because it was outdated and always required either ZDoom or older launcher to play with. Such manual chores are gone now thanks to you! The hardest difficulty was actually challenging and i liked it. The Shirtless Mooks and Kickboxers are much more deadly and i was like daaaaaamn
Spoiler: My thoughts on something else

Spoiler: And here are some feedback during the gameplay, both original and DLC
Overall, this TC never gets old. I still love it even to this day and deserves more attention.

Too bad, "Final Doom" was already taken! :lol:

Then again, "Streets of Doom" could have also worked. :wink:
