It's been a while but Overdose has some news about tools and engine upgrades. I don't want to post all the info here (as it's a lot) but, to sum it up: they've got a new custom Radiant, game code as been added to let the player fire & reload, UI's been updated, completely updated sound system (remember, Q2 came out almost two decades ago!), and a fully scriptable particle & FX system.
You can read all the details over at their moddb.com page. By the way, they're not going to keep their own domain & webpage any more, they found that almost noone used it so they feel it's not worth the money.
OverDose is a class, team& objective based multiplayer game set on a post apocalyptic Earth, were the Confederate Marine Corps and Marauders battle it out for supremacy over the destroyed cities of a war torn world. Using idTech2 as a base, we are writing our engine from the ground up to take advantage of modern day graphical options and details levels to bring you eye popping class based multiplayer mayhem. This isn’t just war... Its an all out apocalypse!
We've got two flavors of Brutal: Vanilla (Mediafire Mirror) and Doom 2 (Mediafire Mirror). The basic package (vanilla) contains just the Brutal Doom content, no engine, extra files, etc. The Doom 2 package is everything you want (including the starter pack!) to play EXCEPT your Doom 2 wad (or FreeDoom Phase 2).
So, if you're a mod savy Doomer you could get away with just the basic package. Me, I wanted the extra's, so I'm getting the Doom 2 edition. Enjoy! Be sure to mail some pic's in of your Brutal Doom'n action to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Radegast on idtechforums posted a tutorial on how to create a fellow marine to fight the depths of hell! He includes step-by-step instructions and a script file. Remember, it's for RBDoom 3 BFG, not the original Doom 3. You can read the tutorial here.
The Demon Steele developer, Terminus, made a promise to release the new playable character for Demon Steele by years end and he's ready to release the untested product on us players! So get ready folks!
What is Demon Steele? Designed as a love letter to retro games, 80s/90s anime, and early heavy metal, DemonSteele is a complete and total gameplay overhaul for GZDoom/Zandronum that dramatically changes the flow of the game to an extremely fast-paced hack-and-slash brawler.
Jackhammer is a new editor for id based games and incorporates the best of Hammer, Q3Radiant, and others. Supporting Quake, Q2, Q3A, Half Life and Gunman Chronicles, it's got three of our favorite Quake game covered!
Some improvements with this version are improved arch tool, multilingual support, and new curve types.
The annual “Best Of Doom”, the Cacoawards, has been announced. You've got twelve pieces of awesome Doom goodness that if you don't keep a keen eye on the Doom community (like me) you need to check out. There's also the Lifetime Achievement Award, Best Gameplay, Mapper of the Year, and a lot of Doom trivia along the way.
