We need a title screen, and more levels, but I'd say we're done with gameplay.

This has come a long way! It's true it still really needs a title screen and didn't someone make a cool intro a while back? My computer was set up so if I hit control+any arrow it does different system commands like showing all windows or the DASHBOARD which really messed me up. :P Think you could add a change controls option? I know that just takes more work... I suppose for now I could just change the key to option. I'd like to add levels when I have time too.
EDIT: I keep getting killed only because it looks like three zombies when it's like eight because they OVERLAP. Every blammin' time. :( I got to level 2 though...
I wonder if it runs faster for me?
EDIT 2: Starting level 3 with  a swarm of 10 green zombies was not cool. They're easy to kill but not if you have 5 ammo left or something... I suppose that's partly the player's fault for not bringing enough but it can send them into an impossible situation. And absolutely add a short delay at the start of a level with some teleporting animation so you see where your guy starts. I haven't got the levels memorized like you guys who designed it!

dont forget to look for secret walls. *hint esspecially on the level where your spawned next to 10 enemies. if you dont have ammo in that situation just run, theres ammo nearby. im gonna have to add a teleport animation

shoot to option? or bomb to option? i think it makes more sense for control to be shoot like in common mainstream games. i did the title screen, just continued with the DOOM theme,

That title screen is made of awesome. I like how you did the floor, is this all Photoshop?

And I meant change shoot to option because control messed me up but that's just me on 10.7. >_>

Agreed, that title screen is awesome.  The text could be better though, it looks really plain compared to the detailed artwork behind it.

thanks everyone. i tryed to add the video intro gan made, but when i click the screen while its playing it pauses and theres no way to resume it so it may just confuse the player if i left it in there cause it just freezes up.

oh god yes, photoshop is my jesus

yea what font should i use? i messed around with it but i couldnt find one that looked right

i added a speed limiter, so when the frames per second goes over 7 it adjusts the time to 5. i also forgot to mention i added demon enemies, their grid id is "6"

heres a new level i'm working on
Code: [Select]
   LET spawntimer=8    //time between enemy spawning
   LET enemylimit=25    //enemies in level
   LET maxenemy=12   //maximum amount of enemies on-screen
   LET line$(1)=  "00010010010901001001000"
   LET line$(2)=  "0F0R00000100010000000b0"
   LET line$(3)=  "0001000001h0h1000001000"
   LET line$(4)=  "11110010011T11001001111"
   LET line$(5)=  "00000010a01010a01000000"
   LET line$(6)=  "00000010001010001000000"
   LET line$(7)=  "00111111011R11011111100"
   LET line$(8)=  "00160010001010001006100"
   LET line$(9)=  "0000UhR0A00h00a0RhK0000"
   LET line$(10)="00100010x00000x01000100"
   LET line$(11)="00111111110001111111100"
   LET line$(12)="00000h10000000001h00000"
   LET line$(13)="00000010000000001000000"
   LET line$(14)="12110010000000001001121"
   LET line$(15)="00010000000p00000001A0A"
   LET line$(16)="0g02x0000000000000x20d0"
   LET line$(17)="00010010000000001001A0A"

Hey guys, got an idea for fixing the video.

Silverwind's QoM intro consisted of just showing a bunch of images very fast.
I can split the video into images and we can show them like a video using Sc's DrawInage command.

I'll be home in like 20 min, I'll give it a spin.

got a better idea, line up all the images in one image so i can import it as a sprite and just run a timer to cycle through them with sprite cutting. it would look like this

createsprite 1, "intro", 0,0,windowwidth, windowhieght
movesprite 1, 0,0
on timer 1
let frame+=1
recreatesprite 1, "intro", frame*width, windowheight, windowwidth, windowhieght
end timer

also i can scale it down so it doesnt use so much space and impose it on a computer screen like this
