Requests For Features / Where's the rest of the music?
« on: May 18, 2012, 15:25 »
It's mostly just the first episode's soundtrack in the game, along with an occasional track from Doom II or Final Doom thrown in. Where are the tracks from episodes 2 and 3? They used to be around, but are no longer there.

It's getting really tedious listening to the same stuff over and over again, particularly on Ao100. And I liked the original Tower of Babel music: made it real fun fighting the Cybie.

Edit: And while we're on the subject, why are the tracks for maps 4 and 7 switched by default? Easy enough to fix, of course, but it's odd.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Basically firing everything with an assault shotgun on the rush to the Unholy Cathedral, picking up the Longinus Spear - and getting about three levels worth of berserking from beating up the Angel of Death with just a combat knife - then largely bashing my way through the rest of the game, switching to the shotgun on an occasion or two when things went a little sour otherwise. My only regret is that I couldn't find a nuke to beat the Final Evil.

Starting to think I should add the difficulty a tad: getting a little easy like this.

Requests For Features / Smoother liquid transition
« on: May 15, 2012, 11:53 »
As observed here, different sorts of tiles, such as water and acid in this case, look really blocky when put together. Any chance smoothening it out a little? Maybe even make the border tiles do damage, albeit a bit less, than full acid does?

Requests For Features / Building ammo packs
« on: May 13, 2012, 03:39 »
If you can break them apart, you should also know how to build them to begin with, right? Take a bunch of ammo, then build them together into a pack that takes less space and is easier to use, that really shouldn't be too hard. Something a technician could know how to do, no?

Maybe add it as a secondary feature to Scavenger.

Requests For Features / Animation
« on: April 05, 2012, 02:56 »
So, now that we've got some graphics, I was just wondering, how huge of a step would be to add a bit of movement to things, instead of having them remain static all the time? Attack animations to creatures might not be possible, and slow the game far too much, but I fondly remember the glowing and blinking of many items on the ground in the original Doom, and particularly the way the Supercharge and others of its type used to shift and change within their orbs, making them look sort of mystical and a bit creepy.

Possible?

It's fun to run into things and kill them all before they get to do anything.

Would've gotten 100% except I accidentally entered the Wall and, unsurprisingly, could do nothing about it.

Requests For Features / The dropped item melts!
« on: April 19, 2011, 04:20 »
Any chance the Doomguy could get enough insight to, you know, not drop items on acid or lava if there are perfectly fine empty safe tiles next to him too? Because that's just stupid.

I can't peek behind a corner without getting lead all over me and being knocked back a whole lot. I've been suffering this ever since the game first came out, and to be honest, I'm pretty sure zombies aren't supposed to have lightning-fast reflexes.

Couldn't you slow 'em down a little bit? At least when the Doomguy first pops from behind corner all unexpected like. It'd take them a sec to regain their composure.

Discussion / Gun Kata - Worth it?
« on: April 14, 2011, 04:06 »
I often play AoM, but even then I often tend to pass this one. Dodging is just too much of a hassle, of limited use, and very often I'm in narrow corridors where it's not possible to do anyway. Meanwhile, put another point in SoaG, two in Finesse, and maybe one in SoaB, and I can remain stationary and shoot almost as fast as with Gun Kata without having to move around.

Though, I guess the existence of the Tactical Armor/Boots have made this more viable, letting me move and dodge much better. But still. What do you think, should I learn myself to dodge better?

10
Requests For Features / Infinite Arena
« on: April 13, 2011, 12:42 »
Fighting through three rounds is enough to have been considered beating the challenge, will grant the same rewards it used to, and is still all that is needed for the Arena Master to show up personally in the Chained Court. But why stop there? Surely the devil would not let someone go from his colosseum of blood so easily, not when the crowds demand more entertainment? Would he not much rather tempt the mortal warrior that has so skillfully slaughtered his demons, flatter his might and see if he could keep him for one more round... and another... and another...

Getting tired yet? Yes, you must be, after all this destruction, but certainly such a mighty marine could handle one more round! Each round brings out more and more enemies, each deadlier than before - up to and including arch-viles, which will obviously raise all the deceased gladiators from the rounds before! The player can quit any time he wants - and be ridiculed out of the arena by the jeering crowds - given rewards based on how many rounds he endured, including rare weapons and possibly even uniques if he withstands the horde long enough.

How about one more before you go?

Mostly everything after Assault Shotgun was a cakewalk. Well, aside from the Spider's Lair, where I thankfully had 95% experience. Otherwise it'd've ended there. Would have gone for a full win except didn't find Invulnerability Globes.

A nice cluster of uniques. Some of them helped, others not so much.

Because finding Dragonslayer is such a pain. Would be cool if there was a level where you got it as a reward.

The level is all dark, like you played with the now obsolete Angel of Darkness. Demons spawn endlessly from the edges of your vision range. Beat them up and slaughter your way through to the end of the level, where your reward and the stairs down await.

(Of course, you'll still have to figure out how to wield the bloody thing. Also you'll get the Mark, but it's not like the demons didn't want you dead in the first place.)

This is one change I really don't like. I never felt they were too hard to break in the first place - quite the contrary, really - but let's not kid ourselves, when the friggin' ANGELIC ARMOR is utterly wiped out by a bunch of shotgun guys and a Baron of Hell, something's wrong.
