  2. something's gone wacky with polymost

    03 November 2018 - 01:58 AM

    So after updating my eduke the previous time, polymost has become absolutely unplayable. It doesn't matter if I load a mod or go vanilla, something's gone weird.


    I know the renderer was updated recently and that may have something to do with it, plus I am stuck with an older machine because i am a poor boy. If that's the sole reason then I understand, though that kinda sucks...


    That being said, I can't help but wonder if there's something more going on.


    Case in point, when the game starts, the colors are warped:

    The colors are corrected in-game, but at that point I'm playing at a whopping 15 fps:

    And no amount of messing with the display options will fix it.


    Something else I want to mention. the classic renderer is still fine, but when it boots there's a blank white screen for about 5 seconds before it actually starts the title sequence. This doesn't happen when ran in Polymost. For some reason. I don't know if that means anything but I thought I'd mention it.


    I don't think there'll be anything helpful in it but I've attached the eduke log.


    These were all taken with the newest snapshot r7138, but at least the frame rate problem started with r6775 (of the versions I have, anyway). I don't know if the polymost renderer was updated by then or not. The latest version I have where it worked fine is r6576.
  3. Any good gore mods?

    11 August 2018 - 02:56 AM

    I was inspired to make this topic after playing the wonderful Smooth Doom a while back. Ironically my favorite features of that mod have nothing to do with the name advertises, but some of the extras. Mainly, as the title of the thread would imply, the additional gore settings. More specifically the fact that it's all software-rendered.


    It made me think back to some of the fancy gore effects I'd seen from this community. The giant bloodstains from WGR2, the extra giblets from Nuclear Showdown...hell, even X-Treme kinda got in on the action. The only "issue" (insofar as the term can be applied) is that those gore effects are all a.) separated and b.) inseparable from their gameplay mods. I'm wondering if there isn't something that sorta combines everything and is widely compatible, for at least most of the expansions, but without changing the gameplay much. Preferrably software-rendered, as well.


    I confess I am a bit of a gorehound, and the idea of software-rendered gore is kind of a holy grail to me. Maybe I'm asking a bit much for it to be compatible with most of the expansions, but I figure there is no harm in at least asking. I like it when things bleed excessively, what can I say.




    Don't look at me like that.
  4. The story of Blood

    23 July 2018 - 05:39 PM

    So something I've always been confused about is where exactly this game came from. Research I've done on my own has just kinda left me with more questions than answers. So I'd figured I'd ask around here to see if anyone can fully set the record straight.


    Where was the idea for Blood conceptualized? What is Q Studios? What's their relation to 3DRealms? What does "funded by" mean, especially if they were supposed to be independent? Why did 3DR have the rights to sell the IP? If it was being developed by someone else, why was it necessary for 3DR to sell the rights? What happened to Q Studios and the actual Blood development team when it went to Monolith? How complete was the game when it was sold? What did Monolith actually do? Why is the game in copyright limbo? What's the difference between publishing rights and IP ownership?


    I don't expect all of these questions to be answered, but if anyone knows any detail about what exactly happened, where this game came from and where it went, I'd be really interested to know.


    Don't be surprised if I have more questions. This has confused me for years despite it being relatively unimportant.
  5. The music of WGR2

    07 May 2018 - 06:46 AM

    Sorry for resurrecting a dead board, but I've been wondering ever since I first played this game. Where does all the music come from for each level/section? Some I can place, like Dark Halls, others I couldn't even guess as to their origin.

    I've looked through all the files but I never saw a music credits listing. Now, I could be a blind idiot and have just missed it, and if I am please direct me, but if not I've been wondering for a long time. I know only a handful of the MIDIs have metadata.
