SNS #134 - Knee Deep in ZDoom

Post by Frits » Fri Jul 25, 2014 9:26 pm

This week we serve you one of doom's legends. I'm talking ofcourse about Knee deep into Zdoom.

Because I am not a great wordsmith and also very lazy, I hope this quote is enough to persuade you to join. (ofcourse it is)

"What started as a community effort to create a ZDoom rendition of Episode 1 turned into a massive undertaking... spending almost 3 years in development. Projects that spend a long time in limbo begin to develop either very high, or very low expectations... and KDiZD was no different. When it was released, the reviews reflected that division. If a friend, who was new to Doom, asked what maps were fun and showcased what was possible, I would certainly point to KDiZD as a suggestion. The maps are marginally based off the original maps, but you would be hard pressed to find any original architecture. Not only are the original maps revamped, there are countless new additions to each level that extend the gameplay. Stacked sectors, cameras, 3d bridges, dozens of new monsters, and scripted events showcase what has been added to the aging game to keep it fresh after 14 years. Many of the levels really are a sight to behold and showcase some very impressive effects, particularly the new additions. With so many Doomers and so many different tastes in gameplay, it is hard to accommodate everyone... but I believe KDiZD offers a decent experience. I will briefly mention that KDiZD could have been a much better experience. Forgetting hubris and drama... the team seems to have lost track of the project's scope along the way and created a monster they could not control. In the end, I still think it turned out to be OK, but mod makers take heed from KDiZD: focus your project and keep a level head... your project will be better served."

Erm.. I think this is suppose to be ran in Doom.wad.. not doom2.wad. Also, intermissions are kinda.. Meh. You have to sit there til some random chosen player clicks on skip this. Other then that, yea more power to ya

EDIT: and I am right. Lookie here > http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/index. ... t /idgames

Scroll down to the readme file, and it says Doom1 NOT MEANT FOR DOOM2.. so yea.

Yeah it requires doom.wad, should be fixed asap as it can cause texture errors. Also, I don't think the intermissions actually work online, do they? I don't recall them being there in online play ever.

Intermissions never play online. And I have played this online before, and no noticible errors occured.

It works just fine on Zandronum. Heck, I even see a server with kdizd_11 being hosted, and it seems to work fine.
