Global Kerfuffle 2  "the GK2 mod thread"

User is online   jimbob 

#1

well, ive been working on a little mod for a few weeks now, and slowly but surely something emerges that looks half decent and half arsed at the same time!
so what is Global Kerfuffle 2? well, as the name implies it is a Global skirmish, or rather World War and its notorious sequel, why? well because there aren't enough of those already :P

basically i needed something to work on whilst going through some changes in my life, and good old duke nukem 3d has alwas been kind to me on such events.
i havent really been active in the scene for quite a while ( like in a decade or something like that ) so im rusty as hell and EDuke has always been a mystery to me, and still is.
so far i have one nearly finished map, that is finished as in it has a beginning, middle and end, but needs more work. 5 brand spanking new weapons never seen before.... as in the art is new, we've al had like a dozen or so thompsons an MP40's over the year, but you get the idea.
so far there is a new mighty boot, an M1911, a thompson M1A1, an MP40, a demo block, and a flame thrower
so whats next?

well i plan to digitize myself wearing my US WW2 uniform and create a new player character
ditto for aditional troops on your side
digitize a friend wearing his wehrmacht uniform to create something to kill.
add even more weapons, maybe even a few novelty ones ( like a expander that actually 'expands' the character, like in mortal kombat 2! or a melter, or something nice and satisfying to waste those germans.
weapons i consider adding are a M3 Grease Gun, an MG42, a M1 Garand, maybe a knife, a Grenade
atleast one full episode, probably two.
one fun episode filled with novelty maps, weapons and stuff wich throws historical accuracy out the window for the sake of sheer fun.
if i can program it, an epic bossfight against a tiger tank! just you, a box full of bullets and one 60 ton tank that destroys all your cover!

since its a one man job right now progress is slow, but ill have something to show in a few weeks at this tempo, so in the mean time, enjoy these videos of random tests recorded on my phone, at night aimed at a shitty laptop.

The FG42 and StG44 would be great additions to the arsenal.

Hey man, i think i will use that, getting a decent photograph of one will require a field trip to a museum, and those are closed unfortunatly, so that flamethrower will be morw than usefull

well, i coded a functioning MG42 in the game for enemies, it works, but i'd love to have it be a weapon that only works if the enemy near it is alive, like a mounted weapon for enemies. right now it also works on its own and that looks rather silly. it also fires a firelazer at random interfalls to simulate a tracer round. this adds to the effect when grouped together in defensive positions, makes it look more visceral.

another thing that i need to add is a 90 degree FoV so the weapon also fires in that FoV rather than straight ahead.
and third, it needs to fire at friendly AI, or a specified target rather than haphazardly. so all that is on my to do list.

here's the first test of the new MG42 weapon for the player. it needs some tweaking and a better firing animation and reload animation but it works for now.

sure, here's the code i used for my Thompson, ill comment in the parts you need.

first, i added the line include weapons.con to the game.con file
next, create a weapons.con file and add this to the top

// gamevars
gamevar digx 0 1
gamevar digy 0 1
gamevar digz 0 1
gamevar angvar 0 1
gamevar picnum 0 1
gamevar shade 0 1
gamevar pal 0 1
gamevar orientation 0 1


next use

// thompson
gamevar WEAPON3_WORKSLIKE 3 0
gamevar WEAPON3_CLIP 30 0 // the amount of rounds in the 'clip' or magazine.
gamevar WEAPON3_RELOAD 40 0
gamevar WEAPON3_FIREDELAY 1 0
gamevar WEAPON3_TOTALTIME 4 0 
gamevar WEAPON3_HOLDDELAY 0 0
gamevar WEAPON3_FLAGS 73813 
gamevar WEAPON3_SHOOTS CHAINGUN // what it actually shoots, chaingun is less precise as shotspark1 and does slightly more damage.
gamevar WEAPON3_SPAWNTIME 0 0
gamevar WEAPON3_SHOTSPERBURST 0 0
gamevar WEAPON3_INITIALSOUND 0 
gamevar WEAPON3_FIRESOUND CHAINGUN_FIRE // change the audio file to what you want, and change the source file in user.con
gamevar WEAPON3_SOUND2TIME 0
gamevar WEAPON3_SOUND2SOUND 0
gamevar WEAPON3_SPAWN SHELL // this spawns a shell flying off to the right


now for the actual code
this part needs to go before any actual draw code so it can be recalled later

 endswitch
ends

// end thompson


and lastly add this
onevent EVENT_DRAWWEAPON
 ifvare currentweapon 3 // if the chaingun is selected 0 is kick, 1 is the pistol 2 shotgun 3 chaingun etc etc
  {
   setvar RETURN -1
   state thompson_display // run the render code we just made
  }
 ifvare currentweapon 2 // can be used for any weapon
  {
   setvar RETURN -1
   state mp40_display
  }
endevent

here you go, this should work if you have all the art files
that should help you get started.

i took some pictures myself and imported them into the duke art files using BAFed the con files should be readily available in your main directory of your duke folder. you cant see these files because they direct to my custom images to wich setvar picnum points to.

i have begun the tedious process of photographing and digitising US infantry sprites, used myself for this actor because i can test it before i go on and digitise german actors and variations. also have a nice couple of things planned to make it a little more than just another WW2 mod, but more on that later, the first few maps are done, working on a basic training/ tutorial map now and have to come up with a nice bossfight later on and if thats done i will release the first episode called prologue.

got a bit tired of the aliens, so i made a mock up german, the uniform is incorrect but atleast it gives a general idea of how it wil look, and gives me a good test run to see what ill run into when i start to take photographs of a correct german uniform, and finish my US soldier.

good news everybody, i have an appointment with my buddy so we can digitise some germans! this wil be a mayor update!

as for progress, so far i have added some new things or modified them to my liking

*pervitin! works kinda like the steroids, but with a slight healing effect
*binoculars, use them to call artillery strikes on certain locations

the next couple of things to be added are

*civillians
*germans! a variety of germans wil be shot ( har )
*more maps
*waves of soldiers to be fought before you can progress.
