VoidSW Public Beta

I thought I'd make a new thread instead of just posting in the main EDuke32 thread. VoidSW is now in public beta. It is included with EDuke32 synthesis builds.
https://dukeworld.duke4.net/eduke32/synthesis/

Extract this package to your folder to use Jimmy's widescreen weapons from Redux. Redownload if you downloaded it before this thread.

Can't wait to fire this up. Kudos, guys.

I'd also recommend pinning this thread before it gets lost.

Having done some beta testing earlier on this, this is by far the best playing port I've played so far.
Extremely smooth. Big thanks to everyone involved!

We've gotten reports of inaccessible secrets and progression showstoppers which can be worked around by disabling the Interpolate SO option in the menu.

For the weapon HUD sprites that are cut off, shouldn't they be pulled to the right, the same way they are in EDuke32?

We've added a fix that resolves the level 1 fortune cookie secret and level 2 drill. There may be other categories of issues with the sector object interpolation so please keep the reports coming.

IIRC the sword looked bad this way. The plan is to bundle the widescreens with the port but that needs some more infrastructure.

Is there a way to get the music working? The log show errors about it.

The music works as provided with all digital releases of the game. To bring your own tracks, you just need track02.ogg through track14.ogg. FLAC also works. Placing these files in a music/ subfolder is supported.

Emerging from depths of lurking to say - congratulations! Finally, modern feeling source port for Shadow Warrior. It really deserved one, last big Build game to get one.
Even official expansion packs work nicely. Are you going to add support for MIDIs for those of us who prefer original shareware soundtrack?
Few nitpicks I noticed so far:
- Multishot firing mode for riot gun sometimes fails and only fires one shot. If you use it again, it works corretly.
- Displaying F1 help screen during gameplay sometimes causes screen and even enemy sprites to "vibrate" slighly in place.

Looking forward to next versions. :thumbsup:

Got the music working, I made my ogg files from my CD. However, I have problems with adjusting the music volume, when I launch VoidSW, the volume is at maximum, until I reach the sound menu. And sometimes, leaving the menu set back the music volume at 100%.

The sword would only need it for its idle state, and probably the first frame of its attack. I dunno, I think it looks good.

I just installed VoidSW. If I use the mouse wheel to select difficulty it sends the cursor into a loop that can only be broken by going to task manager and shut down the program. Works fine with up/down arrow key selection. I just grabbed the exe and put it in my SWP folder. I'll try with a clean install and see what happens.

EDIT: Did a clean install. Actually any menu selection using the mouse wheel sends the cursor into the loop.

It's looks... Okay. I like the idea of bundling it with the port. SW has less modding capabilities, so I think it's more doable than including widescreen fixes with EDuke32.

I agree with this. VoidSW seems much more in line with the spirit of a true port, where EDuke32 has evolved into the realm of game engine above and beyond it's origins in Duke3D. If that makes any sense.

How do you get the expansions working? I can select the GRP and it shows the title of the expansion in the menu, even replaces the enemy sprites with humans for Wanton Destruction but always starts the E1M1 from the base game.
Disregard my idiocy. The shareware episodes show up everywhere but you do get the proper episode(s) showing in the menu. This is a million times better than Classic Redux which coughs up blood and crashes at every turn.

I do wonder if it is better to use the original GRP files for the expansions or the modified proasms versions?

I'm not familiar with the more recent EDuke32-based builds, what file do I use to set console variables at startup?

autoexec.cfg?

If he's talking about in-game console variables, those are defined in the cfg file typically. (voidsw.cfg in this case)

Autoexec.cfg does nothing in voidsw, and swvoid.cfg deletes any lines with variables I set in the file. I was able to verify this with r_shadeinterpolate, which works from in-game console but is not activated at startup in any config file. Looking through voidsw I couldn't find it referencing any autoexec.cfg either, as for autoload, it seems to only process game files, not console variables. Also, the music doesn't loop, unless I reload a save.

In EDuke32, r_shadeinterpolate is added to "settings.cfg", which I see VoidSW is not creating. I'm sure it will work eventually.

Eh, I'd even disagree with a more basic port like JFDuke bundling art fixes, because the way art works isnt as modular as say Doom. I dunno, maybe theres an advanced way to include art fixes but I could see it still causing issues somehow. Voidpoint knows more about the internals than me anyhow.

adding the ifcrc token limits new tiles to only override specific ones - leaving TCs that change them unaffected

Is the Brightness setting working for anyone?
