[RELEASE] EDuke32 Addon Compilation  "Version 3.13 released on December 6, 2016!"

#1441

I did a recount of all addons shown in the launcher and found that actually even two are missing: Not only Infestation in Time, but also Xartech Invasion. This was due to wrong filesize/checksum entries in the groupinfo file, which probably happened during the "missing soundfiles" overhaul some while ago.

Fixed groupinfo files are now available to bring Infestation and Xartech back to the menu selection.

To update:
- Use the downloader script (unzip into your EDuke32 root dir and execute eac_install.bat) OR
- Get the updated EAC Base Pack (13.3 MB)

From the few memories I have, if not distorted, it was possible to reach a secret level by jumping on a little turret structure that was near the normal exit. Unless this happened in Medieval Era.

It could be one of those cases where the button or passage is in a gap so thin that it does not allow you to reach it easily even with DNCLIP, otherwise it is a little far room detached from map rest. Otherwise it's not that hidden and is just behind the other side of an object.

It wasn't directly specified, but it's an ulterior polishment of the 2012 revisited version, right? Didn't check if custom HRP content are still there, but in case they need to be readapted. Although they probably removed by NightFright on purpose for space/relevance reasons.

BTW, it is possible to replace the flamethrower sprites with the now canon New Alien Order flamethrower? Pretty sure Zykov Eddy would have done the same.

I've also found a review.

I don't think it's a good idea to use Gearbox content to replace custom art. I wouldn't exactly call that "improvement". Besides the fact I am not doing these kind of changes to compilation entries any longer.

Back then, I removed HRP assets from IIT since I wanted to avoid the HRP to be required for running any compilation entries. There are some which contain all necessary assets already and those have been restored by now. IIT is problematic since without the HRP, you'd end up with some sprites not being replaced, e.g. the Mighty Boot, which doesn't look good. Since removing HRP assets completely in return didn't make things look bad, it seemed like an acceptable compromise.

I haven't gotten to it yet, but IIT and Moonbase Accident are still on my to-do list.

Have the following EDuke32 issues been addressed to fix some addon issues in the meantime?

Speaking of:
- Red Series (RED4: pipebombs won't fit through hole, r7470-7615)
- The Gate (GATE306: teleporter to SOS room only working occasionally)
- DukeVR (Pipebombs cannot be stacked in RED2, still works in r7470)
- Oblivion: Several maps cannot be completed --> OOZ and OOZ2 can no longer be used as pseudo-elevators (https://voidpoint.io...32/-/issues/105)
- Red Series (RED2: Crash due to MIDI playback stopping with WinMME driver)

About Oblivion, I was wondering, would it be possible to include the separate custom map called HXC98 ?

Zaxtor had made a video walkthrough of it and maybe it would be interesting to include it in the compilation ?


However, I have no idea if the map can be aquired in the first place, where could we download it >_> And does it have custom CON which would make the inclusion problematic ...

Short answer: Neither planned nor intended.

Get used to that.



Pretty sure it's a switch in a really dumb place, but unfortunately I can't remember.

I also had problems in that level back in the days. Sadly, it's been such a long time since I played this, I just can't remember any more and I didn't put any hints in the walkthrough. Once we figure it out, it's probably time to change that.

The entire package will need a walkthrough, I think. I remember playing through it last year and by the time I got to episode 4 I just had had enough of the cryptic nonsense and abandoned it.

At least the last episode is fully covered in the walkthrough. Ep.3 is also more or less complete. The first two episodes however only have "hint highlights", with most critical situations mentioned - and ofc FM1X06 is not mentioned.
In general, it's bad if maps need walkthroughs to complete. Originally I held Fernando's levels in high regards, but over time I realized they are getting too complex at times, even in the first episodes which imitate the originals, while later on they turn into puzzle/search festivals and become quite tiresome to finish. That and for finding the secret level in the third episode, you almost need to study rocket science.

All the FMX levels are like that, including the early ones. While they imitate the vanilla levels in appearance and even combat balance, the progression has always consistently way off. Secrets also have a tendency to go unmarked, or important things get hidden in the pitch black darkness, or even simply getting out of a room requires you to do very unintuitive things.


I have such a strong love/hate relationship with FMX. The visuals feel right at home, the combat balance is, as I said, matching vanilla, and when later on when he starts going for more out there themes we get cool locations like a haunted house or a very dream-like hotel overlooking a gorge.

But the experience is all marred by deliberately obtuse progression. I wish it were as simple as editing the maps but no I'm pretty sure Fernando intentionally made them as frustrating as possible to navigate. I really can't imagine why, as it brings down hard what would otherwise be one of the coolest mappacks this community has to offer. Almost its own DTWiD, of a sort.

I think he isn't even done with it. A fifth episode may yet come, according to what I remember.

i figured it out! there is a blue keycard in a tiny area across from the same area that you open up the first blast door on a timer switch.

the shrinker is supposed to reach across rooms, right? you don't have enough time while shrunk to run through all the rooms, unless i'm missing something. could someone double check?

You have to do switch puzzles in each room in order to let the shrinker pass into it so you can move on to the next one.

If you've done that and the shrink blast is hitting the wall below it, allow me to welcome you to the single most broken aspect of current eduke32 revisions.

So it's something we need to add to the bugs list?

AFAIK shrinker projectiles behaviour was changed after r7395, which is probably the last version before the major clipping behaviour changes. Now the projectiles seem to require more space/larger holes to fit through and also how they reflect from mirrors seems to have been slightly altered. This has made one of the puzzles in Naked Dash a bit more difficult (at least that's what Mister Sinister told me), but also produced showstoppers in a bunch of maps using more complex effects, from the top of my head I can confirm The Last Pissed Time by Lezing and Riverside Town by High Treason being impossible to complete in the newer versions.

well. that's a bummer.

worth pointing out that i had similar issues with DukeVR's shrinker puzzles that i managed to break somehow. i forgot how i did it.

Urban Pack: can't fit through this vent shaft in acbstudios.map. Is it intentional?
