Discussion / ASCII graphics for Doom
« on: January 13, 2012, 09:01 »
So... has anybody done that yet? Replace Doom's graphics, so that instead of zombiemen there are lowercase h's, weapons are brackets and the doomguy's face is now just "@"? Hell, you could even remake some of the special levels from DoomRL..!

Because if nobody did that before...

Klear has been possessed!
Klear has begun a mysterious construction!

Download and installation:

Attached is the DoomRL.wad file with all the graphics and a .bat file which will allow you to run it, as long as you have ZDoom inside the Doom directory. It should work fine, but it's my first time doing something like this, so anything can go wrong.
I've tried to run it on vanilla Doom, but that just throws an error message. I can probably fix it, but it would be a major pain in the ass and as long as ZDoom works, it shouldn't be needed.

I've replaced all relevant textures and sprites present in Ultimate Doom, I think. It works just fine with Doom 2, but a lot of stuff is missing there.

Screenshot and save file (hopefully) attached.

I was playing HntR Angel of Shotgunnery, nuked Mastermind with overloaded nuclear BFG and proceeded to attack JC with my elephant gun. Just as he died, this happened. I can't recall anything out of ordinary (except the fact that I now routinely reach JC, gotta start with HMP soon =)

Edit: Damn, it seems the save file didn't get uploaded corrcetly and is gone for good - I played it again and got my ass handed to me by a morally wounded JC.

This time around, however, JC started spawning tougher enemies, in the first attempt he only ever spawned lost souls (which explains why I managed to take him down), so maybe that's related to the crash. In the first game he spawned lost souls 6+ times, while now he pretty soon switched them for cacodemons, knights, barons and then revenants.

Bug Reports / [Solved][] Angel of Pacifism

The description still says the goal is to nuke the cyberdemon, but nuking him no longer registers as a partial win, so you get "didn't read the thermonuclear bomb manual."

Is it even possible to win Angel of Pacifism without finding additional nuke and a lucky invulnerability?

Edit: BTW, am I the only one to play Pacifist in My, I'm a wimpy chump.

94 / [M|AoB|82%|25|YAFW] My first full win

Ummm... hi, first post =)

Anyway, I started playing DoomRL a while ago (btw, I still tend to read that "Doom Real Life") in, and I'm definitely getting better, though I never even tried to go after JC. With the new version, I decided to start from scratch and managed to kill the Mastermind on the first try, and with 100% kills even, another first for me! Either is this version easier, or it's just that I was playing mosty HMP (though I didn't manage to win yet).

Anyway, this was supposed to be a normal AoB run. Everything was going well, the monsters didn't give me much troubles and I had a lot of suplies. For some reason, I had ton of homing phase devices, which I didn't even use, since I had no problems with enemies. Still, I kept hoarding them, in AoB you have a lot of inventory space anyway. When I ran across the fifth, I was like what the hell, what am I supposed to do with these things? Why can't I find something more useful? And that's when I saw the invulnerability globe...

I picked it up, almost instantly teleported all the way to Dis, nuked the Mastermind and confronted JC. Now, I didn't avoid spoilers much, so I knew who to expect, but I had no idea what he's supposed to do, but since it was AoB, I didn't have to think about it. Just run at him and stab him. When the lost souls appeared, I just smiled and popped my Hellwave pack. The path was clear and I moved it, and stabbed and stabbed and... wtf he can teleport!?!
Luckily he didn't get far. I cut a new path in the lost souls (cursing myself for not waiting with the hellwave a little longer) and continued. Each round the souls kept gnawing at me and it was a real mess when I realized that JC isn't there anymore, obviously teleporting again and leaving me in a mob of lost souls and (as I just noticed) Barons of Hell. It was only then that I noticed he's dead rather than teleported. Phew.

So that's my first full win. I think I'm going to think twice before attempting to do it again. Or bring two nukes, just in case.

Edit: I just noticed in my mortem - there is a weapon where JC used to be. Interesting... And no, please don't tell me anything, I want to find out for myself... don't even hint. I'm still disappointed in myself that I read how to get full win.
