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

As for WGRealms 2, I admit I never played the addon before but I have seen a playthrough on YouTube by someone known as WhamNinjaMolehill and it seems he also got stuck here and had to cheat:

I hope someone will fix the bug because when I will play the addon, I don't want to stumble upon this bug.


YES case and point ! Thank you for providing the proof that I wasn't going crazy and hallucinating ^_^
And I can assure you that if you play the original add-on from either MoDB or Fissile Materials, you will NOT get that bug (using the included EDuke32 because replacing it for a newer one will glitch the default shotgun's alt fire (the sight becomes severely misaligned as you aim upward)).

I suppose it is a script that has broken in the transition between the original EDuke32 snapshot and the newer one included in the compilation >_>

You're welcome.

As for the bug, now we need someone to test WGR2 with various builds of EDuke32 and see which is first build that contains the bug. I could do that for Metropolitan Mayhem because I know that in E5L14, the swing doors don't open in newer builds of EDuke32, so I will try to find the build that created the bug.

In Alien Extermination, Episode 2, Map 4: Broken Enclosure, where on earth is the blue key? It's really well hidden in the darkness. The hints.txt file doesn't say anything about this level, either.

I know it's a bit delayed, but here you go:

Btw, I agree with you upon the extreme darkness levels in this map, but this card, ironically enough, doesn't at all hide in the dark (you will see what I mean). Though it still does hide from you.

So I tried looking around and couldnt find out how to get dukeplus to work with this compilation. It apparently is a thing for at least some of these episodes. Could anyone link or show me how to do this, I really would appreciate it.

#816

Already tried both "custom game content directory" selection (the .bat included in Dukeplus should already do that since it utilize -game_dir DukePlus) and custom dukeplus.bat with "-g \addons\ .grp" parameter methods? It even works slightly modify the DUKEPLUS.CON depending the episode.

This list contains the episodes that should be more compatible, especially those of the first group.

Yeah I'm just trying to test it with one of the vanilla ones right now (aqua.grp) and the episode loads normally but DukePlus isn't active. I'm not really sure how to set up DukePlus with anything else, Sorry I'm kind of a noob at this.

Quick question. Any plans in the far future -maybe, perhaps- to add Duke in Black and Robotech to the Addon Compilation? I know DiB is kindda buggy (that was kind of its "thing" back in the day), but so far it seems to play all right, if only for a couple of sound bugs (human enemies have alien roars sometimes). However, due to DiB's "thing", not sure exactly who's at fault on that one.

Robotech seems to KINDDA work. I did the step-by-step in the wiki article except I skipped the first step because I'm an idiot. Half of it seemed to work (enemy sprites, maps, and general images loaded... but not music, episode titles, or enemy sounds. Also, pretty sure the guns were re-balanced and for whatever reason that file didn't load either), so at least it should be workable, I'm guessing.

Wait, how did you get to that section, though? I see where it is on the map, but it appears to be blocked by a locked door.

Edit: Also, it appears that the Blue Key is not needed to exit the level, either. In the room that is opened by the red key, there is another door that opens into a lab and has a switch in there that opens the door to exit the level.

Maybe the Blue Key Door is for secrets, then?

Probably. I didn't wanna figure it out. You asked about the key, I found it.

So I guess you don't need it anymore?

Well I finally tested the swing doors from that map (both from addon compilation version and from moddb) with various builds of EDuke32 (including latest build r6079) and it turns out that it was working fine this whole time. The thing is first time I tested with DNMONSTERS cheat (to not have to deal with monsters and test the door directly) but seemed like they were blocking the doors and that's why they didn't open.

After testing for about 20 minutes and seeing that doors still don't open, I realized that the (invisible) monsters are preventing the doors from being opened. So I decided to simply kill the monsters from that room first, instead of using the DNMONSTERS cheat and voila, the swing doors finally opened! Tested with various builds, it all seems to be working fine. Now I feel a bit stupid for not trying this earlier. :huh:

Invisible monsters ?

You mean there is an invisible monster in the add-on version ? Sounds most plausible, but then how can we make the door open ?

Sorry but even with those enlightenments we still can't get the door open, especially since you were using cheats (for comfort's sake I know (would have done the same should I have had time)), or maybe I'm being silly again >_>

No, I meant the fact that when you use DNMONSTERS cheat, the monsters completely disappear and you can't collide with them but they can still block the doors and prevent them from opening if they are right in front of them.

In the map, there are a couple of slimer eggs and a protector drone, the eggs being positioned right in front of swing doors but because before I was using DNMONSTERS cheat at start of map, they became "invisible" when I reached them and because of that, the swing doors couldn't open. See the screenshot below, you can clearly see what I mean this time.

And there is no difference of Metropolitan Mayhem between the moddb release and included version in compilation, so we can safely say that everything works properly as it should be. Sorry if all of this sounded confusing but I tried to clarify everything.

Oh okay I understand now ... a bit O_o

Although I realize I didn't pay enough attention to your post because I thought you were talking about WGR2 while in reality you were talking about Metropolitan Mayhem ... Just as I was saying : I'm being silly again -_-

I understand that you're still having your "creative break" and am slightly reluctant to bump the thread, but I've recently found out about and played an old (the third quarter of 1998) but decent (IMO) episode which is called The Real Bad Ass and consists of 8 levels (including 1 secret level). It's got a rating of 88 on CGS, and I'm pretty much at peace with the reviewer (Puritan himself).

The most notable aspect of it, as I think, is an awesome story written level-by-level. Continually, as a whole, the episode is a sequel to the events of the original 3 episodes. The story is not as mind-blowing and thorough but it still deepens the immersion while playing the episode. I liked the gameplay a lot as well. There are some well thought out twists that add to the variety, which benefits the whole impression to a great extent. Plus some creative technical sequences have been put in by the author (like, for example, a series of "airstrikes" on one of the last levels). I found enemy placement and ammo/monster ratio to be fine for the most part (sometimes you will get a bit overwhelmed with amounts of ammo thrown at you but that wasn't big of a deal to me). Also, some levels involved backtracking but I didn't find it frustrating.

The architecture is mostly blocky but still acceptable (especially for '98) and improves as you get further through the episode. Nothing really impressive yet it's worth seeing (kinda like Total Apocalypse I suggested a while ago).

If you want to add this episode to the compilation in the future (after trying it out yourself, ofc), I'll leave the link to the CGS review here.

BY THE WAY, the USER.CON provided with the episode didn't wanna run at first (there were 3 warnings and 1 error), but when I looked into the logfile it said one specific parameter hadn't been defined. I'm not familiar with CON coding myself but I managed to fix the error anyway (since I'd remembered that DEFS.CON stores all definitions for everything; guess the author shoulda thrown in a custom DEFS.CON additionally). I didn't care about the warnings and I have no idea what that parameter's responsible for but I think you'll figure it out (though I have a suspicion that it could probably handle some of those technical sequences).

The other name the person goes by is Ray Tracer & I have an updated version of the maps from '99 if you decide you want to add this episode to your compilation.
Also the included con appears to have been modified since the file sizes are different - but in what way it was changed, I don't know, as I haven't tried to play either of them in recent history

Oh, I remember playing some maps by Ray Tracer in the past (most remarkably Maia and Taygeta which I think should be a sequel to the former). So he's actually the author of the episode. Useful knowledge, I guess, especially given that there aren't any other maps by him released under his real (?) name at CGS.

I think I'll play that updated version later. Thanks for sharing, Forge! :dukeaffirmative: And I think NF will give you a big thanks as well if he ever wishes to add the episode to the compilation.

Pardon for bump but it's been a year since the last update, so I decided to repost all my bug reports, fixes I've done myself and suggestions for the next version, in case there's going to be a new update soon.
Originally I posted my suggestions here, but I figured it's time to update that list with suggestions with more recent releases and re-arranging some of these as well.
Warning: huge spoiler ahead!

EDIT: The fixes didn't attach, so you will have to get them from previous post.

Well I guess it's fair enough to give an update by myself after all this time. However, I am afraid it's not a good one. As a matter of fact, I haven't been able to do even one single thing regarding this project in the meantime, and as you can already guess that's not gonna change for the rest of this year.

No clue when I am able to resume this, but at least there will be more than enough to change and add as soon as I am able to.

No problem about not working on the compilation, I can understand you needed a break.

About my previous post with suggestions, I just noticed that I made some mistakes: I forgot to remove some maps from Urban Map Pack list which I already included in Bolduc Pack and Sinister Pack. I must have done the transition recently but did not carefully check all the maps, therefore some of them will appear twice. And I also noticed that the map Tower of Babel in DN64 Pack, isn't actually made by the author, he just beta tested the map but he isn't the creator (despite Steam workshop listing him as one of authors of the map), so this one can just be not included in the pack.

I wish I could edit my previous post but looks like I'm not able to anymore. And I'm not going to make another post just with these small changes.

I thought there were more people engaged in making the compilation instead of REALLY you only (excluding the testers).

Well, I don't even think there're those who could be called "testers" legitimately (in the complete sense of this word). Pretty much 90% of the work is done by NF himself (IMO). The rest of the people hanging out in this thread occasionally posting about minor glitches and suggesting minor things can't be considered whom I conceive as testers. Just your average players stumbling upon things that shouldn't have been there in the first place, most of the time randomly.

Just my two cents y'all. :unsure:

Well, I just played and finished two addons for now: The Christmas Project and Grins of Divinity.

All I can say is that The Christmas Project was interesting and experienced nothing out of place, though you may want to add a hint in the readme when you reach the Cathedral at end of the second level, to continue you have to blow up the left fan. I thought for a second that some bug prevented me from continuing but after I replayed map once again and reached same spot, I realized I must be missing something, until I watched an YouTube video of the addon and figured I needed to blow up the fan to go down and reach spaceship and that's it. Also there seems to be a map called INTERLUDE that doesn't seem to be part of the episode and after playing it, nothing seems to happen in it. So maybe the map could be removed.

But for Grins of Divinity, I have mixed feelings about this addon. Not only some of the art style is really ugly but also I've experienced some game breaking bugs that I think should be looked upon. In level 2 (the dam level) I couldn't find any way to progress after I arrived underground at some pipes and I decided out of curiosity to download original version of the addon and there was supposed to be a switch present that doesn't appear at all in the addon compilation version. So because of that I couldn't finish the map without cheating. Later, I found another problem but with the fourth level where for some reason I couldn't open the gate at the end of the level right before the exit, so I had to cheat again with NOCLIP to finish the level. I think you should look on these bugs, I understand the level design is quite confusing, especially at beginning but it gets much better later with shorter levels and better designed levels. I just couldn't stand the first couple of levels. Oh and there is also some pointless map called NULL.map, I think it should be removed too.

These are the only issues so far. Soon I will be playing more addons and I will report anything that seems out of place. Oh and Merry Christmas!

About Grins Of Divinity I experienced the same issue with the 2nd level.

Also, I don't know if it's a bug or not, but the hit detection on the enemies is kinda weird, I never understand why I miss/hit them, and the auto-aiming doesn't seem to help in that regards >_>
0

#838

Yeah, the same has happened to me. But even then the pistol is still relatively good in this case because the aliens always seem to drop ammo for it and contains 24 ammo too, so that's something. Well of course you may need to get closer to them to hit them because it seems auto-aim doesn't work on this enemy and their lasers quite hurt a bit.

I also noticed something with the health pickups. It seems I can't pick up the large medkit if my health is 70 or more and the small medkit if health is 90 or more. I'm guessing this is done so that I don't accidentally pick up health at let's say 99 but it can be annoying sometimes if you need health and it's around 70 or you want to exit level with as much health as possible but can't pick up the health that is still available in the level. At least portable medkits and water fountains still restore health to full.

Oh well, I will continue playing/testing some of the addons in the compilation.

Excuse my bumping the thread but I'd like to inform you (in case you didn't know; since no one else in the thread has done that yet) that Sixty Four (at least this is his current nick name on the forums) has recently updated his Haunted Nukem mod with an additional episode (follow the ModDB link in the first post, he uploaded the updated version over there).

There will be an update coming, probably at the end of this month, and Haunted Nukem v2.1 will be included (it had already been mentioned before several times). Don't expect it to be the bigger update that I was aiming for, though - it's rather about fixing stuff and adding a small amount of mods that were easy to check during the little amount of time I had available in the last few months.
