SO WHAT IS IT? 20 years after the release of Midway's infamous Doom64 for the N64, there's a whole new way to experience Hell.
Over 30 new monsters, 8 new weapons, useful sidearms, frag grenades, flying kicks, beautiful effects, and much more await you! Spray lead with the Uzi, use the Taser to hold monsters back from attacking your teammates, heal your friends with the Healing Staff, and work together to kick demon ass.
This is an addon for Strikerman's Super Doom64 that adds many new monsters, a few new weapons, effects (courtesy of AeniPuffs), RPG elements, and a few gameplay tweaks. Intended for survival, with emphasis on cooperation between party members of different skill specialties.
I am working on something similar to the Diablo 2 skill tree, and there will be a leveling system, with experience and skills being saved between sessions. There's already a few Diablo 2 monsters.
SIDEARMS: Remember to set up your keys to switch to different sidearms, or just bind one key to cycle through them (R by default).
To use a sidearm, simply press and hold Altfire with any weapon! You will use whatever sidearm you currently have selected.
Spoiler: Uzi (Open)Hold altfire, spray hot lead everywhere, repeat as necessary. Nuff said.
phpBB [video]The [video] tag is deprecated, please use the [media] tag
Spoiler: Taser (Open)The taser has a short range and does almost zero damage so it's not good for killing anything directly, however it stunlocks most monsters for a few seconds so that your teammates can easily wipe them out. Also great for escaping traps in tight rooms. Taser ammo dropped mostly by cybernetic enemies.
Spoiler: Healing Staff (Open)The healing staff allows you to heal teammates by shooting them with it directly. If you shoot a wall, floor, or shoot into the air, you'll spawn an HP bonus instead. Healing staff ammo is only dropped by the tougher monsters, with Council members (archviles) and Cybersnakes dropping it the most frequently. I also realize that this sprite really doesn't fit well at all but it's more or less a placeholder for now ...
Healers can also see other players' health values via HudMessageOnActor. This should prove very useful in terms of quickly deciding who needs health and who doesn't (instead of relying on cl_drawcoopinfo 1).
Spoiler: new weapons WIP (Open)railgun (sprite by DrDoctor):
nailgun (sprite by HellcattX):
flamethrower (sprite by SamVision i think):
Here's a first draft of that Uzi sprite, which is a Hacx uzi shamelessly rescaled, repalleted, and rehanded, but I'll definitely change it later:
And here's a neat potential flamethrower sprite that SamVision and a few others were tossing around the ZDoom forums' Spriting Carnival a few years ago:
Requires SamuZero's unofficial fork of Super Doom64 (sd64_unofficial_v*.pk3) to run.
Also super special thanks to SunMadcat for his awesome monsters! And President People for his awesome ZandroGuy skin!
oh fuck it's Diablo
I'll post updates here as I make progress.
