Russian Overkill ported to Zan 2.0

#1

Post by HexaDoken » Sun Mar 16, 2014 10:57 am

Shit just got very serious.

With permission from PillowBlaster, I bring thou the RUSSIAN POWER on the planes of Zandronum, allowing us to play multiplayer with it with nice proper netcode and shits. Have fun.

If you are asking yourself right now "what the hell is a russian overkill", you honestly had no life.
Spoiler: what the hell is a russian overkill (Open)
It's a tale of three russian heroes, Yuri, Alosha and Marty(who isn't russian at all but Yuri and Alosha decided that he is crazy enough to fit in) fighting against endless hordes of demonspawn(sic), while being assisted by drunk russian scientists, who have developed a rich variety of weapons for our heroes to use. The basic premise of most of those weapons is very simple: EXPLOSIONS

Pretty much every single of the ~50 weapons(!) is either made of explodium, can be modified to be made of explodium, or is made of something equally awesome as explodium. As a side effect, you are overpowered as HELL, being able to easily rain death upon hordes and hordes of monsters. There is many ways to do so. Throroughly mind control them and have fun watching demons fight each other. Summon concrete donkeys above their heads. Hurl CRT monitors at them. Crush them with the power of a double barreled rocket launcher super shotgun. Spam missiles at them like there is no tomorrow. Wield a portable Obelisk. MIRV Nucclear missiles, black hole generators, massive ion charge airstrikes. Possibilities are endless.

If you still aren't sure what this is, I'd recommend visiting original zdoom thread
You need Zandronum 2.0 to run this. Please note that not everything has been properly tested, and while this generally works online, there may be bugs.

Note: if you are hosting this, compat_clientssendfullbuttoninfo MUST be set to True to enable combos and certain altfires.

Note: I did my best to optimise the weapons, but some of them just refuse to properly optimise. Most of them are okay, but some are laggy. Examples include Katuysha, Libra, Yamato, and a few others too. Please ensure you have more or less capable internet before hosting this.

You can force it to true via ConsoleCommand, until the devs get rid of it.

I enjoyed the weapons, they are powerfuls. I like when enjecting shells out of their massive shotguns.

Though just disliked that Black Hole generator weapon and it's laggysucky effect : Unlike space black holes, it doesn't suck monsters into it... just kill anyone that is close enough to it.

I demand a server to host it. Right now. On the double.

Been waiting for this day to actually play it online.

The fact that the only maps which you can properly play Russian Overkill on tend to have thousands upon thousands of monsters active ALL AT ONCE(the lag generated by this exceeds lag generated by actual RO weapons by two or three orders of magnitude) probably has something to do with this.

A way to reduce network lag would be to play more tame maps on higher skill levels(to ensure that things don't die in five seconds). RO redefines skill levels a bit - skill 4(which normally would be Nightmare) is perfectly playable here.

Skill 5 is where things start to get a little silly.

Skills 6 and 7 is where things start to get really silly.

Other than not playing on incredibly nuts-like maps, the only real solution is to get devs to optimise the monsters netcode. Depending on how exactly it is built right now, this may prove to be considerably difficult and time consuming.


Oh, and if you meant FPS lag, then you just need to get a better machine. My PC is older than Doom 3 and it does not have considerable difficulties running this(until I shoot the for some reason ridiculously laggy Vindicator, that is).

My post was a joke. I run RO just fine :V

I'm just making fun of how many things crash servers for no apparent reasons because Zandronum

We need to put this up for the FNF/SNS when Zandronum 2.0 comes out.

Well, my post explained that there is, in fact, an apparent reason. It's less "because Zandronum" and more "because internets are imperfect".

The fact that this is essentially a clash of not really perfect PillowBlaster-code with incredibly horrible HexaDoken Industries code might also be a contributing factor.

If you host it on FNF, I request it to be hosted with a version of ZDoom Wars maps modified by that script from doomworld which makes maps 4 times bigger.

With a few adjustments this could be very well epic.

I was referring to more in general than to RO-specific stuff
(I still want to know how samsarahold segfaulted two servers, for example.)

Anyways, RO for FNF/SNS as soon as Zandro 2.0 comes out.
