DM Revival - MANAGEMENT HELP NEEDED

Post#1 by Doomkid » Fri Mar 15, 2013 3:11 am

DMR at Doomworld: http://www.doomworld.com/vb/showthread. ... ost1153985

Hey there, Doomers and DMR participants. I'm sad to announce that due to some fairly serious life changing events - nothing very negative, I'm happy to say - I won't be able to do things like this for quite some time. I will not be able to continue managing the DMR project, and I was hoping to get a few participants to come together and make this project something better than it ever would have been anyway.

I'm sorry to announce this with such little pre-notice, I have got a further improved and developed version of DMR here, with accompanying text file: http://www.mediafire.com/download/nt9cannkl7itexc/DMR_Files.rar

I urge the participants to elect new project manager(s) make a new thread for this project, if you wish to do so. The amount of effort that has been put into this, and the potential these maps have would be a very shameful loss. There is a lot of unique and fun material here, that is a certainty.

I wish you all luck with this, A deathmatch version of CChest has always been a goal of mine since I found out about community projects as a wee one. I hope to see it fufilled at some point when my life becomes more well balanced again - And thank you all so much for participating in this. I've had a ton of fun.

:)

(Older Information Below)

Hey Doomers! Another new DMR beta is ready, fresh out of the editor! (June 10th)

DOWNLOAD VERSION 0.9B:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/59yfbvc1z520t85/DMR_v9b.zip

A lot of updates, enough to set a release date at July 4th!

-Credits map built! I went the simple "Names scrolling in lights" route, no picking of favorites or little icons or anything. I think this works best anyway.

-Texture issues begone! Aside from the VERY rare stray flat, every texture issue is resolved and all maps are totally cross compatable. It took plenty of time, but this is a great step!

-Details added. Map 16 (Deathmatch Prison) was very bare, and has had a lot of love shown to it. I think it's looking pretty slick. Map 24 (Splatter House) is an awesome map but it suffers from some serious textures issues. A few other maps could stand a bit more detail too.

-Some MIDI's changed. Some repetitive MIDI's were swapped and other requests have been met. If you want me to change your song, just send the new file my way and I'll put it right in.

Long short, here's where we stand: Another run through of beta testing: Looking for any remaining glitches, and detailing the very few remaining sparse areas. Any texture alignments should be pointed out too - We want the maps to have that nice 'finished' look to them.

Keep it up, fellas!

mr fiat, W1D3A55, one_two and bobvorn have now been added to the list. And Springy, thanks for the words of support!

My language in the OP was terrible, when I say pit 2 marines against eachother it sounds like I'm talking about Duel maps. You definitely can make a duel map, but if you choose to, try and make it a bit spacious so it could still squeeze in a 4 man FFA. As far as custom textures go, I'd prefer to just use the stock stuff for consistency, if nothing else. :)

So far, things are coming together well. At the moment there's no strict deadline, but I'd like to at least have a rough layour of your map by April. Keep us posted with screenshots too, that always helps!

Wondering if were allowed to use the skulltag data textures (and only the textures, dont worry), mainly because it just makes maps a bit less bland.

This is true, the skulltag textures add a lot of choices. Try to use them sparingly, because I am looking for a sort of consistent 'classic' feel with this project, but variety is always good. One thing I wanted to avoid was too many graphics to be present in the WAD for a very tiny file size. :P

Do you have experience with XWE or SlumpEd? It would be incredibly helpful if you could add the textures/patches you'll be using into your wad before you send it, so it will be easy to add it to the collective file. :cool:

What if you're a custom texture maker? :3

Edit:

I would really like to make some custom textures for my map(s).

I could just.....you know....make a resource file (containing all the stdata textures, then all the maps eventually), then send it to you for everyone to use.

Btw, XWE is a big nono.

I'm against a resource file, if this is intending to be a true OS style dm wad. You can do allot with the doom2 textures.

A few is okay, but try to keep it light. I'm in agreeance with one_two about the resource file, just include the textures you'll be using and I can group them in with the whole file later. Most of the team will just be using the stock Doom 2 stuff anyway, but again, a few customs is no biggie.

Hey guys, just to clarify, make sure your maps will be able to run in Zdaemon and Odamex as well so we can get a more universal selection of mappers and players. I don't want to leave any Doomers out :)
