Post by: Dvader0086 on January 13, 2008, 10:44:53 PM
Ok, since the board was closed here's a new one...

Post by: The Slimeinator on January 13, 2008, 10:52:09 PM
So, how's progress lately?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on January 15, 2008, 05:28:10 PM
Progress is at a standstill right now...

I am sorry to say that but I've been busy with other stuff...

Can u post the latest download? I don't really have your wad right now... :-\

This is for Legacy and it's an IWAD correct?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...

I've seen it work on GZdoom and Skulltag.

I was thinking about making my MOD in MMF2 but I need strife's help... I am only a intermediate user, and he's probably advanced or expert in MMF...

Strife, If you could get back to me on my PM i just sent that would be wonderful...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on February 03, 2008, 10:11:31 AM
wait wait wait...your gonna do a DooM TC in MMF??? That would help your skilz in the program, but it also might be unnecessary. How hard is it to build a first person shooter in MMF?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on February 03, 2008, 03:43:43 PM
I dunno, but I've seen it done... That's why I need strife... I need help making such a game... I would assume it's rathur advanced stuff... I bet I could manage...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on February 03, 2008, 06:52:21 PM
Hmm...!!!STRIFE!!! GET OVER HERE AND HELP DVADER!!! I'd love to see a DooM mod on something other than source ports. A completely new software could help you over come many problems Chex modders have.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on February 11, 2008, 10:44:32 PM
strife no answer in days... can anyone tell me when he last posted or logged in?
EDIT: Ok nevermind... He can help if he wishes but I think I figured it out...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on February 20, 2008, 03:48:42 PM
at the risk of double posting... I have some news...

I figured out how to make a first person shooter in MMF2 but am unable to figure out how to make moving sprites... I'll have to ask for help from ether strife or some guys on another board...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on February 20, 2008, 11:26:17 PM
Well, even if it turns out DooM 32x style (look it up), id love to see something standalone.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on February 22, 2008, 05:10:18 AM
I may not be able to do somthing standalone. I would have to do more work, and I don't know if it's worth it to make an entirely new engine...

However I do have good news!

ALPHA 9 IS HERE! You can get it from Annihilation Softwares webpage...

My suggestion: Get the CQROTQ + Annihiltion OS... Plus download some other games... They are fun! The OS launches all the games and the update to Alpha 9 creates the WAD in the OS folder...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on February 22, 2008, 08:28:55 AM
AOS? An actual OS or just a launcher, and does it run doom?

What I meant about standalone, it'd be better to put CQ in one excutable...but thats not what you're doing! You're taking an established IWAD and putting it to CQ...Nvrmind. If you were making a from scratch cq game, a standalone would be better.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on February 23, 2008, 01:41:27 AM
it's an os launcher...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on February 23, 2008, 11:45:08 AM
Ever since you put that Vitalize plug-in download on your webpage, I can't find links to any other sections of your site, just the homepage. I'm not able to download CQROTQ at the time.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on February 23, 2008, 07:57:10 PM
Here's the link to the products page: http://koldstare0086.tripod.com/products/products.htm (http://koldstare0086.tripod.com/products/products.htm)

I will also upload it to file front...

http://hosted.filefront.com/Dvader0086/ (http://hosted.filefront.com/Dvader0086/)

PS: Did u download the plugin? It's required for entering the site... Also download the OS as the new Alpha installs into that folder...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on February 26, 2008, 07:17:46 PM
It seems that GZ Doom is the way to go... I am in the middle of switching over now... So far it looks good... I mean, it works in GZ Doom so why not?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: TrueDude on February 26, 2008, 07:22:10 PM
Sounds good, Zdoom is much more superior.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on February 26, 2008, 08:57:25 PM
ok it's alomost done... I did make a release of Alpha 9.5 with music from Map 30 and 17... The Annihilation OS now include Zdoom and GZdoom too...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on March 04, 2008, 11:02:17 AM
Alpha 9.5 is done! Sorry all, I should have posted sooner... I uploaded it and forgot to tell everyone! It has all the music listed on the music topic as people's favorites. Try it now, the last few levels are the ones with the new music.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on March 07, 2008, 12:17:41 AM
hey...ZDooM is just an advanced DooM engine. GZDooM is an advanced Legacy Port with extras...

I'm getting errors when I try and get that plugin...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Replica on March 07, 2008, 02:02:43 AM
No. Gzdoom is a advanced Zdoom Port.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on March 07, 2008, 04:23:55 PM
what plugin?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on March 07, 2008, 09:42:05 PM
@Dvader: on your page

@replica: well, it supports most of legacy features...IDK its a mix b/w zdoom and legacy. either way, its superior
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on March 07, 2008, 11:27:24 PM
GZDoom is based off of the ZDoom source code. It uses a lot of the features that Legacy has that ZDoom doesn't, but that doesn't make it a superior version of Legacy, or even based off of it.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on March 08, 2008, 02:26:07 AM
Ok, to each his own, but heres why I say what I say:
LEGACY: true 3d, fragglescripts, multiplayer, dehacked
ZDOOM: fake 3d, ACS scripts, separate multiplayer, DECORATE
GZDOOM: fake 3d, true 3d, fragglescripts, ACS scripts, limited multiplayer, decorate, dehacked

much better to me, and a mix of the two...but I may have gotten things mixxed up...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on March 08, 2008, 10:39:43 AM
I say that GZDoom is based off of ZDoom beause it looks, fells, and launches like ZDoom, and because the creator of GZDoom says so (http://grafzahl.drdteam.org/index.php?page=topic&id=226) (looks for the multiple Zdoom references and the seeming attachment and dependence it has on it).
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Replica on March 12, 2008, 12:43:59 PM
GZDoom is based off of legacy. It does use Legacys 3d Floors ;)
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on March 16, 2008, 05:11:21 PM
Y we arguin? its a mix of the two best (zdoom and legacy) plus some...lets just forget what the base is...and i'm not saying code wise, i'm talking feature wise.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on March 20, 2008, 09:55:16 AM
In any regard, I think we should end this now and get back on CQROTQ before this turns into something else.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on March 27, 2008, 08:45:49 PM
dang i get arguei wai to easy...

so, dvader...whens new release, or are we going to chill for awhile?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on April 01, 2008, 11:57:45 PM
well, i can't get doombuilder to work on vista so... I dunno... I do have slimanator working on some stuff though...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on April 02, 2008, 08:14:33 AM

ooh! *sees file size* ooh...

I'll get it if I can...but a Q:
how many enemies are replaced?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: The Slimeinator on April 07, 2008, 10:23:00 AM
All of them.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on April 07, 2008, 10:27:01 AM
Really? I looked through the WAD, and there were still some instances of "FREEDOM: GRAPHIC NOT YET DONE!".
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: The Slimeinator on April 07, 2008, 10:32:29 AM
Oh, THAT. Lol.

I thought he meant if there were any doomish sprites left.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on April 07, 2008, 04:26:57 PM
lol...but if freedoom doesn't even have their sprites done...y would dvader?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on April 07, 2008, 07:41:21 PM
I am working on them... It's still not done yet!
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on April 07, 2008, 08:25:32 PM
Er... I'm having trouble getting Legacy to accept the WAD or play it correctly. How do I do that, again? Am I even using the right source port?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: The Slimeinator on April 07, 2008, 08:27:16 PM
I think CQROTQ is meant to run in GZDooM.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: arch129 on April 07, 2008, 09:41:43 PM
I have been having trouble starting this in Legacy it keeps giving me an error saying "R_InitTextures: Missing pacth in texture TR02"
I have tryed it in GZDoom an it works fine.
I aslo notice that the music in levels MAP27, MAP29, MAP30, MAP31, and MAP32 changed back.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on April 08, 2008, 03:50:40 PM
don't worry... I'll change it... Thank you for bringing it up...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on April 08, 2008, 07:23:04 PM
Dvader0086, what's the official word on the source port to be used?
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on April 08, 2008, 10:53:07 PM
It's been changed to GZdoom... It works well on there...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on April 14, 2008, 11:45:28 PM
Got a couple more questions.

First, is this a PWAD, or an IWAD?

Second, would it be too much trouble to include a batch file for GZDoom in your next release? ZDoom and GZDoom aren't as easy as Legacy to specify IWADs and PWADs with, and I really loathe it when I'm handed a mod for one of the two without a good batch file to run it with.

Normaly I can use the luncher.exe from Legacy to run IWADs or PWADs on GZDooM. It works good but it can run .pk3's.
All you need to do is copy and paste the luncher.exe to where your GZDooM folder is and go to Game Mode from the luncher.exe and change the Legacy.exe to GZDooM.exe
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on April 15, 2008, 09:49:00 AM
Eh... that's a little weird and just plain wasteful. I prefer to do things "the legitimate way", and the best way to do that for me would be a good old fashioned batch file.
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Replica on April 16, 2008, 09:17:05 PM
Or you could download Zdooms launcher. http://zdoom.org/wiki/ZDL (http://zdoom.org/wiki/ZDL)
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on April 18, 2008, 12:18:26 PM
It's still a complete Iwad... I use ZDL as well so try that...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...

Sorry guys! It's just taking a long time to do this now that I am going back to college! I may be able to find time to bump it up to beta soon but I dunno...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: snakeman on July 26, 2008, 04:47:07 PM
dudes,
how do i find this game.  i go to every website and it says its not there
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Manny Cav on July 26, 2008, 07:46:57 PM
Your best bet would be Dvader0086's website, Planet Annihilation (http://planetann.tripod.com/).
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on August 11, 2008, 01:49:06 AM
Yeah sorry about that... I tried to post the site in my sig...

Anyway, been too busy with Shaiya to work on this... Sorry, but won't be until college starts or after when this is a beta...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on August 11, 2008, 08:11:51 AM

Post by: Atariangamer on September 08, 2008, 10:52:04 PM
I got it! Only problem...I notice that the first level does NOT go well with the set textures...it looks all cobbled together...but the others look more like the older versions, that were just replacing the Freedoom with Chex Quest...IDK, is it suposed to be like that? Here's my batch file:
Code: [Select]
gzdoom.exe -iwad CQROTQ.wad
It will load, but I notice the TR02 error as well...
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Dvader0086 on September 09, 2008, 05:10:52 PM
the levels were not modified in any way... They are supposed to look like crap. Your not supposed to play the levels unless you want to... It's just there for test purposes, testing weapons and monsters...

use the summon feature to test the monsters, and weapons... To summon monsters type: summon (doommonsternameinsertedhere)
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
Post by: Atariangamer on September 09, 2008, 05:27:45 PM
oh...okay
I did test the dark zorchers, and they ROCK!
Title: Re: Chex Quest Return of the Queen...
