ReX, I tackled yours first 'cause of the smaller file size. Great looking, it was fun and well-balanced. Almost made it to the exit switch, have to go back later. :)

You're next, Nigel.

Thank you both. But perfection is putting it a bit strong. The biggest "ugly" in my mind for this level is that the Mega-Sphere secret is far too easy to find. I meant to change the texture indicating its presence and simply forgot to do it. Did you guys find it?

This is probably all there is going to be. I hadn't really planned on even doing it as a releasable map when I started. But now the resources and so on are in a WAD, It would be reasonably straight forward to do a second level as an add on. I kind of have half a mind to do a more open city kind of battle, but I'm not especially motivated to do it ATM.

Was it the fact the screenshots page had "Work in progress" on it that made you think it was a demo? Well, I just changed that to "Miscellaneous Stuff Page" instead. That page has said WIP for ages.

Yes, I saved. But had to quit playing and fix breakfast for a hungry girl. :) She was sitting near, watching me play, and I was just a bit uncomfortable with such realistic marine opponents, slaying them in front of her tender eyes.

Yes, I know what you mean. My kids wondered why I was killing humans, especially ones that looked like they were "on my team". I had to explain they were "bad men" who used to be on my team. :twisted:

Pretty sure it's T2. I've had the midi sitting around on my HD for quite some time. Since long before T3 came out, so it can't be that. The T1 theme was quite a bit different wasn't it? So I guess it must be T2.

Re: Enjay's Marine Assault

WOW is right. A lot of work went into this one. I really enjoyed playing it.

If you don't mind my saying so, I saw quite a bit of LWM's influence.

Heh, I don't blame you for not looking in the WAD or reading the text. There's too much stuff in there to easily find this little line.

So, It's all dehacked original enemies rather than Scripted marines. I did this for a number of reasons:

The flexibility as I said. Using dehacked I could set the hit points easily for one enemy type rather than changing them via scripting for each enemy, I could set fire rates, which graphics to use and so on more easily than changing marine skins, I could set up my sounds more easily and so on...

It also meant that some enemies already had pre determined weapons that they drop, so I only had to worry about setting specials for dropped weapons for the ones that normally don't drop anything.

Also, I wanted all the enemies to count as kills which is easier to do if they are genuine enemies that count anyway (unlike the scripted marines).

The only time I used scripted marines was for the little cutscene at the end when the marines walk off the ship. I thought a nice touch there was to make them use the same colour translation as you, the player, have picked in player setup so they are clearly your buddies. But I bet no-one noticed that. :) Shame I couldn't extend that effect to the final end of game graphic.
