ZDoom Wars I v3.0i

General:

-Created a very basic CVar query list to see which CVars are currently altered in game in real time. Type ‘CvarQuery’ in console to toggle on and off. CVars only will be listed if they’re altered from their default values and this list will automatically fade after 5 seconds

Balance:

Hexen:

-Ettin(Enchanted): I suppose this is balance related. I removed A_RadiusThrust from the Enchanted Ettin magic projectile. This will probably lower the damage some, but it also means Flembranes don’t lose most of their health in two hits

Strife:

-Programmer: Fiddled with the Close Too Close values and states. Watch as I accidentally make this guy way too powerful for its own good, or even more worthless

-Entity: Reverted the Entity’s changes from the prior version with +FRIGHTENED and what not

Virus:

Turret(Spreadshot): Raised the cost by two on all Spreadshot Turrets so now the retrofit cost makes sense

Bugs:

-If ‘ZDW_Herolimit’ was turned off, Silver, and Yellow LMS Leaders; along with Silver TLMS Leaders would not have a cooldown and always reimburse

Doom

-Revenant: Revenant’s cost message on the fullscreen hud said 26/8, not 24/6

-Pain Elemental(Dual): Dual Pain Elemental’s on LMS would shoot 1 soul only and wait two seconds afterwards.

Heretic

-Mummy: Altfire ghost Mummies only cost 3 mana

-Undead Knight(s): The Red Axe projectile from both varieties of Undead Knights were able to pass through ghosts

Strife

-Acolyte: Burned Acolytes hit with the repair drone would die twice instead of fading away

Chex

-Super Cyclops Flemoid: Corrected full screen hud and cost message that stated Super Cyclops can hit ghosts. Should be partially hit ghosts

Virus

-Spore(Upgraded): Upgraded Spores did not fire the upgraded projectile

ZDoomWars I v3.0h

Another revision. Yes yes, because we still have another 16 letters to go!

General:

-Created a new CVar flag called ‘ZDW_ProjectileTeleports.’ If set to 1, players will shoot projectiles instead of ‘punching’ monsters to teleport them

-Upgrade summoners can now be sent to inventory instead of removed. Holding Altfire will send them to inventory while tapping altfire five times completely removes the summoner for the round

-Clientsided projectiles that had been previously skipped over

-Also redid and optimized a redundant script or two

Hexen:

-Health items now auto activate when the player reaches 1 or less health just like they did in Hexen

Balance:

Strife

-Programmer: Reworked Chuckie’s frightened state so he’ll no longer try to masquerade as a second rate John Matrix

-Entity: Removed the chance for the Entity to ever get into it’s frightened/increased missile state. This is more of a test to see if this makes the monster more consistent

Bugs:

-Cleaned up a few retrofit teleport states that could cause the wrong sprites to appear on a few monsters

Heretic

-Weredragon(retrofitted) Retrofitted Weredragon’s when teleported would revert back to their normal counterparts

Hexen

-Ettin: Silver Team Ettin(s) could not be enchanted via the enchant wave

Strife:

-Spectre B: Spectre B shared their limit counter with Spectre A

-Entity: Entity’s health was at 7350 when it should have been 7250

ZDoom Wars I v 3.0g

And another minor update. This version is more of a retroactive compatibility release for the Zand 2.0 release with a few minor bugfixes thrown in of course.

Data V3.0g Changelog:
General:

-This release is primarily to make sure everything is compatible and working in Zandronum 2.0. There are a lot of under the hood anticipatory bug fixes and code changes to make sure everything works smoothly. I have a hunch though that more will be found so please let me know

-Removed -TELESTOMP from the player classes. Yeah that was a big mistake. I quickly learned there was a reason that flag wasn’t deactivated to begin with

-New Translations: Green Pain Elemental(s)

Bugs:

Doom:

-Lost Soul: HUD messages listed the wrong amount of health for Lost Souls. This applies to the Pain Elemental versions as well

Heretic:

-Garogoyle: Vanilla Garogoyles still had the bugged revive state where they would endlessly produce corpses

-Garogoyle: Silver Team Gargoyles could not be ghosted via the ghost wave

-Mummy(Ghost): Mummy Ghosts were missing the PUSHABLE flag

Hexen:

-Swamp Stalker: Team LMS Stalkers didn’t ever enter their firing states. How did this one go unnoticed for so long?

Enjoy!

ZDoom Wars I v 3.0f & Map Pack 1.6c

Well here’s to another revision update. Now we’re on 3.0f and the maps are at 1.6c. Should be pretty good to go.

Data V3.0f Changelog]
——————–
General:

-A big unnoticeable change, but all the decorate files internally are now .dec instead of .txt. I guess if you’re studying (STEALING1!11!!!#$) the code from this it saves you from having to set each txt as decorate in your lump editor

-Made a rudimentary script to prevent telefrags. It activates and deactivates sv_unblockplayers at the beginning of each round. Also added -TELESTOMP to the classes for the heck of it

New translations: Silver Sentinel

Strife:

Balance:

Virus:

-Turret: Turrets can no longer hit ghosts. There. Now leave me alone about this

Bugs:

-Telefogs produced by the monster remover would not appear

Doom:

-Mancubus: When retrofitted to the flame version and teleported on TLMS, Mancubi would revert back to the normal version

-Vile Pulse: Vile pulse Viles when removed by the monster remover dropped blue mana

Strife:

-Repair Drone: This a rather bizarre one. Online in servers this seems to be completely busted and just clears any translation whatsoever. Offline or a server I host it works fine. I’m going to take a guess and say it’s because of how the translations are loaded. I gave them their own separate script and since there’s no way of testing this until this is uploaded… here’s to hoping!

Virus:

In addition to previous versions Land Carriers and Leaders cooldowns being flipped, their limits also were. You could summon 3 Leaders per round and 4 Land Carriers

-Landcarrier: I still don’t believe this to be a real bug. The original code is fine, and not to mention I’ve never had anyone tell me how to reproduce it nor have they ever actually confirmed seeing it. I’ve also never seen it personally and the Land Carrier can jump around so it doesn’t necessarily always spawn all 50 pairs at once. Talk about blasphemous rumours. Anyway I rewrote the Drone summoning code where no matter what, the Land Carrier will summon 50 pairs of Drones maximum. Period

Maps V1.6c Changelog:
Fixed various texture errors throughout several maps. Never ending process, but everything counts!

ZDWARS12: -Whole map got a complete texture rehaul and is now known as ‘Verdant’

ZDWARS26: -Vanilla Hexen was able to remove or teleport Tyketto

ZDWARS29: -Mana wouldn’t spawn during the random intervals

And that’s all she wrote. I also finally revived the irc channel on irc.zandronum.com:6667 at #ZDoomWars. I don’t know why I waited this long or why this is happening either soooooo… hope you enjoy it!

ZDoom Wars I Map Pack v 1.6b

Very long overdue considering the magnitude of some bugs within the last release. There’s a new map too! So without further adieu…

-Removed Greatest Crucible from the map pack for several various reasons

-Aaaaaand replaced it with a new map by GuiGui called “Underworld Siege”

-Fixed the missing sprites that caused broken actors for Snowfield(ZDWARS28) and The Rule of Three(ZDWARS30)

-Fixed various texture misalignments and small detail errors throughout the pack. This of course is a never ending battle

ZDWARS1: Removed the blocking, hanging corpses in hell marble side to the north

ZDWARS2: Raised that rock on the edge to the east of the map

ZDWARS3: Changed the sky back to the previous version and removed the authentic void one. I still stand behind the void one, but I’m just so sick of the constant whining and complaining

ZDWARS5: This was long overdue, but finally made the long bridge in the center a 3D Floor

-Also detailed the elevator area on the north eastern building up top

ZDWARS8: Completely blocked off that interior room. I’m sorry, but I’m not a map detailer genius like mik57 or Damage and any ability I do have is lost due to lack of motivation

ZDWARS12: Pulled the wall on the south west portion of the map with 3 platforms more towards the pit

-Pulled the edge of the cliff where you make the leap of faith to get to the platforms closer

ZDWARS13: Widened the doorways within the center silver structure

ZDWARS17: Made the elevator in the Inquisitor base to the platform next to it only accessible from the ground

ZDWARS21: Opening title code was missing the map number
