Re: Eternal X 1.2

The thin texture in the center of the screen is very bright, which seemed out of place to me. I figured it might have been overlooked, but I could be wrong. The directional lighting in that general area does seem to point in the same direction, but that one spot sticks out in the dark corner it's lo...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

What if the o2 guage was repurposed as a generalized life-support/power supply? Infra/Invis toggles would cost greater amounts of energy, and automatically deactivate at a certain threshold to prevent suffocation. It would also slowly recharge on its own outside liquids and vacuum, assuming that scr...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Marathon doesn't like it when CLUT gradients don't line up with eachother, and the F'lick'ta CLUT was offset from the Hulk CLUTs by three colours. It reaaally doesn't. I wasn't 100% sure of the problem, but thankfully your posts above have confirmed that for me. It was very difficult getting the gr...

Re: Hound Redux

I may also make the sprites slightly smaller - as of right now, they're noticeably bigger than the sprites for the original Marathon, and the added detail may be more of a hindrance than a help. Agreed. I feel like the darkest brown shades could use some smoother blending (I'm using the Hunter as a...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Gray F'lickta (Stone F'lickta? Ancestral F'lickta?) is complete, after spending most of my time wrestling with Eternal's weird color table behavior. I couldn't get the Ghoul rock to look very good, so I ended up going with a recolored mud projectile after all. (I still think bones would have been co...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

The two gray F'lickta color tables have blue and brown blood, respectively. I suspect they were meant to fill the remaining two variants, but were not used in any of the later versions I remember. The blue and green tables are definitely based on M2/Infinity, also unused. I'm not sure why any of the...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

The MoAH thing might be different because Eternal uses M1 sprites for the Hunters. Do M1 Hunters perhaps attack from a different position than M2/∞ Hunters? If that’s the case then perhaps we ought to adjust the offsets. Had a quick look at the M2 MOAH, and they're the same. Oddly enough, the MOAC ...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Alright, I think I've solved the Enforcer bug. Sequence 8 ("flame stationary") had both a Loop Frame and a Key Frame assigned, but since the sequence only has one frame to begin with, they were referencing non-existent frames beyond, and it appears in-game to have defaulted to Frame 0 (which happens...

Oops. Enforcers with napalm cannons switch to a sprite of them with a scatter rifle for at least one of the frames they use. I know this issue has been looked into a bunch of times to try to fix it, but I just have no idea what's causing it. I just re-checked the sequences and the physics again and...

Re: How do World Units compare to Doom engine sizes?

The square highlighted in your image is 64x64 map units. According to this Doom Wiki article, 32 map units could be interpreted as 1 meter. As the Forge manual states, 1 World Unit is roughly 2 meters. Over the years, there has been some debate over the accuracy of this. For simplicity's sake, I wou...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Erich, what do you think of this idea ? Not too sure about that one. It's a lot of extra work just to rearrange the eyes. Some more unique sprites to help them really stand out would be better, I think. For example, if the cloth accents from the XBLA Fighters were ever added to the original sprites...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

The Hulks, Wasps, and Lookers are all definitely from Rubicon. I even fixed the Looker’s colors in the last update by pasting it in directly from the Rubicon X Shapes file. Actually, the Wasp might need to be touched up too, as it appears to have been imported to a mostly beige color table. If you l...

The Bob placement and colors on the maps was updated in anticipation of those. I suspect that the assimilated Bo...
