Re: How Much Special Effects Do You Need?

Special effects are just a tool to aid the level design/gameplay — I wouldn't worry about them too much unless they are necessary to help you get a point across or pull off a gameplay element. I put tons of them in Death Wish but they were never my first concern.

Re: Number of Secrets

You'll need a special switch to set the secret count. Mine from e1m1 of Death Wish is below: http://i.imgur.com/TmREU.png You can stick this anywhere in the map. I usually put it off in a random box since the player doesn't need to see it. RX: 7 (means it will activate as soon as the map starts) TX:...

Re: DEATH WISH Discussion

Well you're zipping right along! You'll be done by tomorrow at this rate.

You'll have to try a harder difficulty after you beat it this time around :wink: I assure you Well Done and Extra Crispy will provide more challenge if you are currently playing on Lightly Broiled. EC is especially devious.

Indeed it is!

As a number of people are having this issue I have removed the Pods from this section. The latest downloads from the blog and ModDB site are up to date :)

Re: DEATH WISH Discussion

It's from the Fire Pods. They are buggy and can crash the game sometimes. It shouldn't happen EVERY time, though. There's a note about it in the README.

Re: DEATH WISH Discussion

If you downloaded before 11-2-11 you will want to get the updated version. There's some nasty bug that may prevent a key from dropping in Episode 2 Mission 3. I also added some more information about using GOG's Blood and bMouse for mouselook to the README. The download file link has been updated o...

Re: DEATH WISH Discussion

Death Wish has been updated with an expanded README file and a few other components to aid GOG.com Blood users who are having trouble. It currently awaits approval at ModDB so check out the blog for temporary alternate links. Could an Admin please remove the File Dropper and MediaFire links from th...

Re: DEATH WISH Discussion

So I opened dw.ini , removed the file paths so that it only read "CutSceneA=dw1a.smk" and Hey-Presto! Lovely DeathWish Intro. Thanks, it worked. I played the first map which looks excellent! The part made me laugh when the Cabal arrived with a cart that exploded and one of the ackolytes got blown u...

Re: DEATH WISH Discussion

The Blog has an updated post addressing cut scene issues.

I'll update the README file that comes with Death Wish once we're sure we've covered all the issues.

Re: DEATH WISH Discussion

Yeah, some things like getting smashed between trees are engine bugs that I tried to reduce as much as I could. I'm sure there are errors here and there but hopefully nothing big. Honestly the vehicles/subways/etc have the highest glitch potential out of anything in Death Wish. I'm glad you found th...

Re: DEATH WISH Discussion

Haha that was fast. I updated my blog with the links, also. When I get approved by ModDB I'll take down the MediaFire and Filedropper links. If someone could remove those from the OP in this thread after I get approval that would be very helpful. It'll probably happen tomorrow. In the meantime it wo...
