After a few more tweaks, bugfixes and additions, I have decided to make the latest version of Attrition available to anyone who wants to try it:

http://deeperthought...n/attrition.rar

I am not calling this an official release, because there are still some aspects of the mod that lack polish. So consider it an open beta. It is, however, entirely playable with few known bugs. Documentation is included.

I have included about 70 high quality user maps with this mod, most of which can be played in the random mission episodes. Every map should have its own text file (I even created some for maps that didn't come with them).

It's fucking awesome :P I got akimbo ability at level 3 (or 4, I cannot remember, it was after bleeding ability) :D, and then I died :D For shotgun I only got level 2 (knockback), I'm looking forward to see the next levels. What it would be in a high level, explosive shells?

I like the altered original levels of last episode. When I have time I will test it even more.

Umm, does that mean my feedback is too late :P ?
If it is, I am sorry about that, I was basically making a note things that were good and things that didn't work and planning to post it once I'd played through just about everything.

Whats the coding like on the Recon cars, Ive got to the E1L2 map (E4L2) and the instant one of them recons starts firing my FPS goes to hell. Thats without the HRP or Polymer on hardest skill.

EDIT: I don't really like hearing that BLEEPing noise when Duke says Yipikaye Motherfucker.
So I removed it if people want to hear it with out it.

No, not at all. I still want feedback, and this release is still a beta. Even if it were an official 1.0 release, I would want feedback, as I always do for my mods.



@Commander: I have been fired upon by many a recon in this mod without significant loss of framerate. There is nothing bizarre and inefficient in their code, but they do fire a lot of projectiles. Depending on which type of projectile is being fired, what else is going on at the time, and your computer specs, it could be a problem for you.

It may have been some weird non repeatable EDuke32 issue as usual, I exited the game altogether and then reloaded and it ran perfectly.

So far, this mod's awesome... though on the fourth level is where it started to get hard (And I'm playing on the random missions episode).

I'm currently stuck in edfsp.map, as I have no idea where to go after I entered the pressure control panel.

Edit: In that map, I encountered an Alien Princess, Battlelord Sentry, and Overlord Sentry; yes, in that order.

I'm not sure exactly where that is in the map, but I remember there's at least one part where you have to use the jetpack (in a broken elevator shaft IIRC). The difficulty is somewhat random because of the random map selection and randomization of monsters. But that's why there are other features to compensate, like death rage and nukes.

Is it possible to get an option to kill the extra gib effects, I am trying to play a map not included in this mod that has rooms full of monsters and if they gib then this happens most of the time. "Too many sprites spawned."

EDIT: I suppose I could manually remove the models and effects for the time being.
EDIT 2: Which wouldn't work any how as it would still spawn a sprite, even though it is invisible. http://www.graphic-forums.com/images/smilies/doh.gif

Nevermind the part where I got stuck, I found out about the shaft.

As for the nukes, I'll save them for those really tough areas. (especially the boss maps.) As for the death rages, I challenge myself to get as far in any episode as I can without using those death rages. (Again, I'll save the death rage for when I reach an area too tough for me to slog through normally. (That goes double for when I reach the main boss.)

Some day I'll write a code fix for this which detects whether sprite numbers are getting dangerously high and prevents the spawning of the jib effects.

Finally got the Vortex of Doom upgrade for the Shrinker and, man, it's GREAT !
I'm playing the classic episodes and, believe me, when you reach the third youž'll need it for sure.

I found a website with a few good vanilla maps. http://www.angelfire...r2001dukenukem/

Those maps... are not easy, though.

Edit: If I recall correctly, the platforming (yes, there is platforming in those maps... a lot of it.) in several of those maps were much harder than the fighting. And the white palace map is one hell of a maze full of puzzles.

I don't doubt it, Lostroamer : Zaxtor's maps tend to be visually astounding but very hard to play. And he LOVES platforms.

If you didn't, try his Oblivion mod : it's frustrating as hell, but got a ton of nice new features and great maps (there are 5 different episodes in the mod !).

Here's the link : http://zaxtor.net/Ob...C/Frameset3.htm

When playing West was won (WESTWUZ1.MAP) I encountered a Battlelord Sentry near the nuke button. I used the Expander against him (leveled it up so I had the clone ability) until he was killed and spawned as my ally. However, instead of spawning a replica of the one that died it instead spawned a Battlelord the size of a boss! It was on my side however although I'm not sure if it gained the same abilities as a Battlelord boss or if it still had the same attributes as the one that I killed.

I noticed that same bug Loke, but I was at the end boss level when I encountered it. The battlelord sentry I used the expander on retained his grenade gun ability.

I have fixed that bug. I will release a little update later today.

Does anyone remember how to make mirrors indestructible in EDuke32?

PAL 4 on the mirror texture. Actually a feature I requested.

So Deep, have you thought of adding any more vanilla-compatible maps for more possible random episode combinations aside from Zaxtor's? (Zaxtor's vanilla-only maps should be an episode of their own, though.)

While I consider Zax a very creative and talented person, the kind of gameplay he tends to implement is like the antithesis of what Dan wants.

There's enough high quality user maps out there to make another random missions episode. Maybe what I'll do is make a blank episode for the next release so that people can put in whatever maps they want. If you want to do that now, putting in different maps for the random episodes is as easy as editing the definelevelname lines for volumes 0 and 1 in ATTDEFS.CON. Just make sure not to change the number of maps in the episode, and not to change the first or the last defined maps.

I'm leaving on a trip now, and I'll be gone until Friday night or Saturday. I don't know if I will have any internet access during that time.

@DeeperThought, I think that you should add the new episode the way you did with the others. If someone wants to play a map, he can browse and load it within eduke32.

By the way, have a nice trip :P

So far in the mod, I'm at Rabid Transit; I upgraded most of my weapons to level 6, and man were they wonderful. On the subject of the backpacks, I found that if you save before you get a backpack, you can reload until you get the ammo for the weapon you need. (Or, in my case, added max ammo to all of your weapons.)
