Doom : Slayer Edition

Recommended Posts

The maps themselves aren't the issue; they're tiny (relatively speaking). What takes all the space in Doom is mainly the sprites, then the wall textures. That's partly why Doom on consoles featured edited levels: they removed a bunch of textures and sprites to fit smaller carts. They could have easily given you dozens of levels... if they took the time to edit the levels to only use the textures and sprites that fit.

Forget the extra maps.  I want Slayer in the Slayer edition.  Hell should be Raining Blood.

95% of the missing textures probably only need about 200-300k.

Yes, which is why people wonder about how much editing they did... was it really necessary, or just them being a bit overly cautious about memory usage? If they had more time, maybe they'd have worked more of the original graphics back in.

Whats next after Slayer Edition, tackling World Peace?  Dont think anyone thought Jag Doom would get this kind of update and such so maybe there is a chance :)

Still 2-player Deathmatching, right?  I'm guessing it would be too much overhead to expand it out over Catbox - or the other networking solutions - for more than that number...

Will it come in a transparent red cart?

Anyone who designs a game around a cart is a total fuckwit :P

 

When it is done it is done.

I was going to say it needs flashing red lights that makes it look like it is on Fire, and a built in speaker that makes demon noises.
