    The False Spear SDL

    Post by tsalop on Thu Feb 14, 2013 11:10 pm

    First topic message reminder :

    Hello everyone, WLHack here... It has been a really long time since I last posted here.
    Anyway, let's get straight to the business.

    After years of idling, I have started to work on Wolf3D mods on again and my goal
    is to finally release ToS. But before that I will remake False Spear in SDL...

    Here is what I have planned to do:

    - Add new levels and fix the old ones:
    Let's face it... The last levels of TFS were extremely bad (especially the final boss) so
    I am going to alter the existing levels a bit.

    - Add more walls, doors and items:
    The problem with the DOS version was memory limitations. Because of that, there were not much
    variation between scenery (I bet you can count all different wall types, excluding the wall decoration,
    without even using all of your fingers). Also doors only had three different textures (compare to the ToS SDL-demo).

    - Add some more guards (and maybe minibosses):
    Nice little thing that gives the game more atmosphere...

    - Replace the projectile shooting mutants with regular ones:
    The rocket mutants didn't work that well, because most of the time they killed themselves due the splash damage.
    So I decided that I am going with mutants more similar to the original ones (behavioral changes though)...

    - Update the graphics:
    TFS was a mess of "realistic" graphics and cartoony ones, so I have decided to update them a bit (and
    recycle ToS ones). Also I will be using ToS-palette as I think it has the perfect colors for this mod.

    - Explore the themes more:
    Okay. We had the mines, dungeons, abandoned research facility etc... But due the 21 level limit each
    different theme only had about 1-3 levels. This time I am going to add more than 21 levels and maybe add alternative routes.
    In case of alternative routes I will remove total-playtime from the end of the game.

    - Change the music to midi and replace the original Wolf3D sounds...

    And much more...

    Haven't found the source of the bug yet, but I intend to fix that too...
    Also I decided that it would be better for ToS that I only make a bug-fix and do not add advanced shading through 4th plane - as that would mean re-mapping all levels. I however will make a small one level mod to demonstrate the feature.

    Thanks for the fixes Toni, so many people release mods and don't bother to take feedback or fix things. I do wish you'd posted (even just a list of links) to these at DHW. I hadn't checked in hear for several months and had no idea you were actively releasing bug fixes, especially with the Dome not updating patches or releases.

    Keep up the awesome work, I've always loved your mods and can't wait for ToS! Smile

    Thanks.

    Well, I tried to recover my lost password for DHW for several times, but this hasn't worked most likely because I only have my gmail-address anymore.

    Toni,

    Check your PM. I have reset your password and you should be able to change it to what you want now.

    Wow... That looks fascinating.
    I can understand why the graphics distort, but how he got negative health beats me (it shouldn't happen in the first place)...
    Anyway it is nice to know that people are still playing this mod.
