Circles published on

Actually getting back into the groove of things here. A small project, but here it is nonetheless.

About: A single deathmatch map with a gimmicky design, inspired by Dr. Seuss. There is significant use of sector movement which cannot accurately be expressed in the screenshot, so keep that in mind.

Protip: Turn sv_infiniteammo on.

Compatibility: Doom II, Zandronum. (skulltag_data.pk3 required again for use of Minigun, Grenade Launcher, and Railgun.)


Barrel of Fun

Barrel of Fun published on

The end/start of another hiatus. Here’s another project, see you in a few months.

About: A new game mode, Barrel of Fun is a single player and co-op defense game. Monsters randomly spawn from all corners of the map and make their way to the center, where they target the single explosive barrel. If the monsters destroy the barrel, you lose. It is similar to invasion but doesn’t have different waves or any ending, and running away from the monsters is no longer a viable strategy.

Protip: Always keep your eye on the barrel, or a zombieman might slip through the cracks while you take on a revenant.

Compatibility: Doom II, Zandronum. (skulltag_data.pk3 required for use of Minigun, Grenade Launcher, and Railgun.)


Prop Hunt

Prop Hunt published on

About: Another new game mode, Prop Hunt, finally in Doom! If you’re unfamiliar with Prop Hunt, it’s a game mode with two teams, the hiders (props) and the seekers. The hiders are all different decorative objects that were already in Doom, while the seekers are marines with shotguns. The prop players run around and try to blend in. The seekers must differentiate against the prop players, and the real props. The seekers win by killing all the prop players, and the props win by surviving until the time runs out. Runs under Team Last Man Standing game mode.

Protip: When hosting this mod, please enable chasecam.

Compatibility: Doom I or II, Zandronum.


King of the Kill

King of the Kill published on

Finally, the official inaugural Zandronum mod from! Hope everyone enjoys it.

About: A new game mode where you win by being the first player to get a set number of kills in a row while being the “leader”. You become the leader by either achieving the first kill when there is no leader, or by killing the leader directly. The leader will receive full health, armor, and ammo for every frag he gets, and will also go slightly faster and jump slightly higher every time he frags someone. Played through deathmatch.

Protip: Don’t forget to set the pointlimit cvar to an actual value other than zero!

Compatibility: Doom I or II, Zandronum.


Bot Creator

Bot Creator published on

In the interest of digging up old relics of time, I present you my Skulltag Bot Creator program. Written in AutoHotkey a few months back, but never released because I was waiting for a more appropriate time. Since Skulltag is dead now, I guess it’s a Zandronum Bot Creator.

It should be pretty self-explanatory, except that you must keep a copy of 7z.exe in the same directory that you launch botcreator.exe from, or else it won’t work since it wouldn’t be able to create the PK3. (The required file is included in the botcreator download link anyway.)

Also, hooray for the first post in the Applications category! I’ve never really released an actual program before, so I often take for granted the fact that only I know exactly how everything works, and how to maneuver around certain bugs and things, but this program is simple enough that there shouldn’t be any bugs.

Nyan Cat

Nyan Cat published on

Here’s a little project I was working on over a year ago. I almost completely forgot about it. (Sorry the fad is out of date now…) After fixing a few things and wrapping it up, here it is. Keep in mind that this was made before Zandronum existed, so I still don’t have any official projects designed for it.

About: A sidescrolling-ish Nyan Cat game where you eat cake and burgers, while dodging poop… in space. Have fun.

Protip: Don’t forget to set up your controls.

Compatibility: Doom II with Skulltag(/Zandronum?). Oh, and you need to use the Software renderer. OpenGL makes it look like crap.


Portal Gun

Portal Gun published on

Oh so Zandronum 1.0 was released like a week ago or something, I’ll work on moving over to that soon. (This was only tested with Skulltag, not that it should make a difference.)

About: A portal gun for Doom. Works in multiplayer.

Protip: Don’t forget to set up your controls.

Compatibility: Doom I or II, Skulltag(/Zandronum). It also seems to work in ZDoom.



Dots published on

Haven’t done one of these in a while… I’m still waiting for Zandronum’s first stable release. But I decided to whip this up last night, and it turned out pretty good. Right now it’ll run with the final version of Skulltag, so Zandronum compatibility shouldn’t be a problem.

About: A simple new game mode with one level. Run around the square room collecting dot orbs. For each orb you collect, a new projectile will randomly spawn and continually bounce around the room, along with the next dot orb. Get five orbs to refill your health, and then six more, then seven more from that amount, and so on. There is no end to the game, simply play until you die, and compete with high scores. (There is nothing stopping you from playing in deathmatch or coop, I suppose. But this is intended for single player.)

Protip: This was inspired by the flash game also titled DOTS. You can play it on both Not Doppler and Newgrounds.

Compatibility: Skulltag(/Zandronum). It also seems to work in ZDoom. Doom II.


Skulltag Update: Zandronum

Skulltag Update: Zandronum published on

Doomworld posted this article yesterday… I’ll write about it when I have more time. Just spreading the word for now.

EDIT: Okay, now a week has passed, and I’ve looked more into this… So basically, Skulltag is being forked into a new project, called Zandronum. Although technically, it’s not really a fork because Skulltag itself is dead… Due to community drama that I won’t pretend I entirely understand, the former Skulltag team has decided to cut off all ties to Carnevil, including dropping the Skulltag name. So they’re leaving Skulltag with Carnevil, and creating a “new” project. Basically just renaming Skulltag and trying to move away from all of the drama. Other than that the project is really not too different than the latest Skulltag beta. In fact, it’s just about the exact same thing, except with all mentions of Skulltag replaced with Zandronum, and all stock resources removed. (Temporarily or for good, I’m not sure.) As far as where this leaves the players who just want to play Doom, well, Zandronum will let you do everything you were able to do in Skulltag, except that any mod that used Skulltag stock resources must now be loaded with skulltag_data.pk3 in addition to the wad/pk3.

There’s really nothing wrong with the port. I mean, I don’t really like the name Zandronum, but it seems most people don’t, and this has been argued to death on the forums. It doesn’t seem like it’s gonna change though, especially because it’d be a lot of work buying a new domain, getting a new logo, and even changing all of the internal mentions of the name. So I don’t really blame them, or care about that.

As for me, I guess I’ll just have to “upgrade” to this new port as soon as the first stable version is released. I wish I could stay behind with Skulltag, but I’ve already kept countless mods from being released because I was waiting on Skulltag to support a feature that’s been in ZDoom for months. And now without anyone developing Skulltag or keeping it up to date, it’ll be left behind entirely, it seems. Carnevil is the only one who has the authority or ability to continue with it, but he’s busy with other projects. It’s not his fault, and I feel bad for him. Skulltag was his creation, and even though I usually try not to get involved with the community drama, from what I’ve gathered, it seems like he was the innocent one who had his work stolen from him. It’s a real shame to see Skulltag “die” like this, but maybe one day Carnevil will return, or hire someone new to pick up Skulltag and restore it to its glory days.

That’s about all there is to say in terms of how it affects regular players who don’t care about drama. Let’s hope Zandronum will stay more up to date than Skulltag did.

UPDATE: Still on Hiatus!

UPDATE: Still on Hiatus! published on

In case anyone still reads this, (implying anyone read it before,) I’d like to explain why I haven’t made any posts since January. Well it’s not that I haven’t been working on projects, I have. Although nothing special like some ultra giant mega project thing. Just the usual, a bunch of small projects and slight modifiers. The reason I haven’t released any of them is because half of them don’t work right now. You see, the last official Skulltag update was November 7th, 2010. (I don’t know why, I’m not very active in Skulltag’s community, despite the extent to which I use the port.) So… many of the functions I’ve been using recently aren’t in Skulltag, because they haven’t been inherited from ZDoom yet. You might be wondering why I don’t just release the ZDoom working version… Well, I would, but most of them are specifically for multiplayer. Basically what we have is a bunch of multiplayer projects (for Skulltag) using modification functionality only present in a primarily single player Doom port (ZDoom).

So just to reassure any readers that might end up here, I’m not dead, nor did I tire of Doom or the community. Just waiting for the people above me. And as soon as the next stable version of Skulltag is released, I’ll return to be pumping out mods once again. Until then, I’m learning some other programming languages and crap.
