    Played the first Episode + the first level of the second episode of Blade of Agony.

    Its brilliant, yeah it aint classic doom or wolfenstein its way closer in playstyle to RTCW but its brilliant.
    Theres like 15 Weapons, actual Stealth missions, multiple objectives per map, secrets etc
    If you have ANY sense for exploration & dont play on babby skill levels its also 10+ hours of fun.

    I've been casually idling through Final Doom: TNT Evilution on an older version of Brutal Doom (Brutal Doom v21b).

    Maybe it's because of Brutal Doom, but it looks to me that the Wad could use a do-over. I'm seeing scenery half-placed into the walls, and sometimes even pushed beyond them.

    I could also just suck at this, but I've been through maps where I could not find some of the secrets for the life of me, even while using cheats.

    Fun Wad though, I still like how it emphasizes the smaller critters instead of the bigger ones.

    That's odd, I don't remember this being a thing. It must be a new addition. Doesn't that mod have lots toggeable options? There should be something to remove that.
    Also: Modders gonna mod.

    Divinity: Original Sin 2
    The Doom Tribute Project

    https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/Ports/megawads/doomtrib

    A really well made reinterpretation of Doom 1 (original 3 episodes without Thy Flesh Consumed) and Doom 2 combined in one huge pack. Due to the customized weapons and new enemies, I've played it without any gameplay enhancements. Because there is a lot of new monsters created by the community, a really nasty ones to be sure and with the new ambushes/traps it can result in our quick death. Luckily, there are some weapons added, like two pistol combo, or the railgun which is really great for crowd control during the bigger battles. Vanilla weapons feel different, probably from some brutal doom version. Alando1, who is the author of this wad, made the Doom 2 parts actually looking, like it is taking place on Earth. The levels are more organic and less abstract, and sometimes we got two maps merged together. There are some new textures and other stuff that wasn't seen in the original versions. When it comes to difficulty, it's surprisingly balanced for most of the time. The new traps, enemies placement might surprise you, but for a seasoned player it will be a great refreshing replay of both games. I think it's best played solo, because in co-op it would be too easy.

    Anyone ever tried some ultra hard combination?
    I soloed HR2 on UV with: Complex Doom & Legendary Creature Addon, that was really fun but also frustrating
    as fuck cuz this goes beyond anything thats doable with just skill....

    I mean you fight semi-immortal*, flying, golden spider masterminds that shoot multiple full-auto bfgs...


    Is there some bestiary, difficulty addon thats not as crazy?




    *takes like 20-30 BFG shots to kill

    Some Codexers mentioned P. B. is not worth it. Failing that, there's Guncaster Vindicated and Johnny Doom:

    Bug in Brutal Doom: If you activate the night vision scope on the Rocket Launcher, then Taunt, Doomguy will unzoom from the scope but retain the night vision. This lasts until Doomguy switches weapons.

    Exploit in Brutal Doom: If you Use the corpses of friendly marines, you can often resurrect them. This works almost all the time on Blue Marines (Plasma Gun) and Red Marines (Minigun), sometimes on Grey Marines (Shotgun) but never on Green Marines (Assault Rifle).

    Bug in Brutal Doom: The Evil Marine critter uses a monster slot that many other mods use for custom monsters. Most noticeably the Secret Boss in MAP32 in the "Doom 2 the Way iD Did"-wad is replaced by an Evil Marine, which not only makes the whole level a breeze, but börks the game as the death of the Secret Boss is supposed to trigger the end of the level.

    As I have no means of contacting Sgt Mark IV maybe some Codexer could forward the above to him somehow.

    As for the Gold release, I've yet to come across the Revolver in it during normal gameplay, but it has been updated. In normal fire mode it uses shotgun shells and functions like a sawed-off shotgun, doing great damage at extremely close range, but barely any damage past that. It also has an alternate fire mode where it uses standard bullets instead and functions much more like a standard revolver, but not enough to justify its presence.

    The revival mechanic is there intentionally, iirc.
    My memory is fuzzy, but the reason it doesn't always work is because at least one damage type may cause a final death, so to speak... Bullets, probably?
