    149 KB QUAKE - FLESHING IT OUT Anonymous 05/05/09(Tue)22:33 No.4476855  
    Quake... my favorite game of all time... filled with Lovecraft-inspired monsters and dark, grim atmosphere.

    Plus the most chilling, yet awesome, soundtrack ever to grace games.

    Yet... there's barely any plot or real story, just go in an kill "Quake" and his/her minions in the most awesome and epic gorefest ever.

    Considering /v/ is too hung up on modern games and complaining about the most illogical of things about those said games, I remained in /tg/ to bring up a discussion about the most badass FPS ever made (which I still play to this day) in hopes of fleshing it out with...

    well shit, just fleshing it out and expanding upon it.

    Dimension of the Doom, Realm of Black Magic, Netherworld, Elder World.

    And the expansion packs, Scourge of Armagon and Dissolution of Eternity. All the perfect lore material that is just waiting to be filled in by you gentlemen.

    What say you?

    This artist makes the perfect modern variations of the monsters without fucking up the original concept like they did with Doom 3 (Quake IV strogg looks are just fine, considering no two strogg are supposed to look alike even though the enemy models remained the same for each type of enemy)

    And then your character (Ranger in Q3A) is taken to the Arena and noted as being 'more alien than human' after his slipgate experiences.

    Coming to think of it, Arena has enough characters and fluff snippets to build something out of it.

    Let's stat these muthafuckers /tg/

    Can't be too hard, just basing the shit off their hitpoints and attacks and shit.

    Oh and also: The ease at how the Grunts and Enforcers get taken out: Isn't it similar to today's games at how fast humans get taken out nowadays?

    A few hits from the nailgun, one or two from the shotgun, a gibbing by the rocket launcher, etc etc.

    It's not until you start seeing orges and fiends and fucking shamblers that made FPSs so damn good back then.
    >> Anonymous 05/06/09(Wed)00:01 No.4477519
    If Quake was to be more updated with a better storyline, I think the first episode needs to be mostly just the Earth levels that you normally start each episode in, only to FINALLY reach the slipgate complex and enter an outpost close to the gateway to the Earth Realm.

    Or something. The episode levels need to flow better.

    And combine Scourge of Armagon/Dissolution of Eternity into the original Quake as one complete game.

    Bring back the original concept of the "Quake" hammer with the Mjolnir, as id Software intended Quake to be.

    But keep the same fast and gritty gameplay.

    My idea for the Shambler is having him able to cross dimensions.

    Imagine this: You encounter the Shambler in Quake, and you already know how deadly they are with their fast speed, powerful melee attacks, resistance to explosive attacks, and always-hits lighting from their claws.

    You run away then, and escape him through a high platform or sealed door.

    You think you are safe... only for a slit to appear in the walls, like a womb being sliced open.

    Out reaches a long three clawed arm and grabs for you, and pulls you in, your punishment for lacking the courage to fight the Shambler head on.

    For he just finds you in an enclosed area where you thought you were safe.

    If you do manage to escape his claw grab, then he'll open the portal bigger and climb right through... and resume his chase.

    Hope you have enough nails.

    That one lava boss level, if you code and noclip into one of the long halls you come to find a hidden room full of badguys. Aggro them and make one hit the other, then they just maul eachother. (They;re supposed to be spare bits when you kill the big boss, as a cinematic, their bodyparts flying out of the lava as he falls back into it after the final volt).

    My favorite part of the game.

    And once you enter through the portal, monsters spawn all over the place because you fucked up the teleportation points, where they were supposed to telefrag each other and shit

    I want to hear more about this FPS-to-RPG converter.

    In terms of an RPG though, Quake's weapons would of course vastly outnumber the ones displayed in the game, and this goes for melee weapons as well.

    Orges, for instance, don't have a chainsaw and grenade launcher for every single one. Obviously, they'd have either huge melee weapons like axes or clubs or something, and a few have heavy caliber weapons like a quad-barrel shotgun or said grenade launcher. Hell, one could pay tribute to Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the chainsaw in a sort of berserker-orge

    Give the grunts a shitload of variety, like with a single-barreled nailgun, a few grenades, shotgun as usualy, etc etc.

    Enforcers have armor with a biosuit, given the Vader-like breathing they have, give them heavier weapons like rocket launchers and shit.

    Zombies in Quake aren't the virus-infected guys that are becoming too cliche in today's fiction. They are the ancient, degrading, UNDEAD monsters that can only be stopped by separate the body parts like in The Evil Dead with Ash having to dismember his friends. If they remade quake, you could have the zombie parts CONTINUE to try to move even though you technically killed them.

    It's ironic though, normally telefrag works by a player teleporting into the other players location and killing the second player. But when a monster in the single-player teleports in your spot, the monster gets telefragged instead.

    So what happens when you try to telefrag the Lady of Pain?

    Don't Vores hate each other though? All you have to do is kite one into the other and then deal with the winner.

    Or am I thinking of Shamblers?

    I know there was one epic moment where an Ogre SHOULD have gibbed me with a rocket launcher, only to clip a Shambler instead, the shambler then proceeds to go apeshit on the Ogre and the Strogg in the room.

    I decide to leave the room at this point. I hate watching domestic disputes.

    You think vores are scary? try having a fucking ogre glitch on you like one did for me!

    During the course of one level an ogre glitched the fuck out on me, instead of dying when it was killed it fell through the level sort of like a noclip cheat. Only it kind of got stuck in the floor with it's head poking out, it basically looked like a severed ogre head.

    Picture it, a severed head crawling along behind you snarling and shooting grenades at you that you CAN'T KILL because it's hit box is protected by the ground and when it gets close enough your health whittles away as it chainsaws you to death. I thought it was biting me because I could only see the head and I was like, 8 or 10 at the time?

    I remember in Dissolution of Eternity, when you fight the mummy queen for the first time, I launched a rocket at her, thinking she was just a reskinned zombie.

    She didn't blow up into chunky kibbles.

    I launched another.

    Still nothing.

    I turned tail and was afraid to fight her, I thought she was indestructible. I tried to complete the level without killing her, but apparently you couldn't progress to the next area until she died.

    So I launched multi-rocket after multi-rocket at her.

    She eventually died, she just had a shitload of health.

    But what scared me the most was the fact I thought she was unkillable.

    And that my friends, is what is the scariest thing in games, unsure if something is killable or not.

    And the big jugs mean those little shambies needs lots of healthy breast milk to grow big and tall and have the necessary electrodes in their blood.

    A PDF platoon returns from a long patrol to find their hive city gone dark. The streets are awash with blood, and as they watch, a servitor emerges from a wrecked shop carrying an armful of human viscera and severed limbs. Following will lead them to the manufactoria, where the remains are dumped in a coliseum, now just a charnel pit containing thousands upon thousand of mangled corpses.

    Over the mound of dead, servitors and insane tech-priests pick out the finest pieces, taking them to be messily clamped, riveted and interfaced to artificial parts on a hellish assembly line. If noticed, the priests call for misshapen attack servitors that carry everything from lazrifles to blood-caked industrial tools.

    If any survive and make it to the deepest levels, they make it to the great forge, a refinery boasting a pool of molten metal a hundred feet across. The signs of the machine god have been defiled, and sigils of choas are etched upon the walls.

    Actually there's been quite a bit of stigma recently in showing females die gorily that, funnily enough, weren't around in the early days of gaming.

    Before it was okay to see Sonya Blade getting her head ripped off, spine still attached, but nowadays they avoid adding any non-deskjob or non-pilot female COG's to Gears of War because of some stigma about showing women getting chainsawed in half. It's perfectly okay to see a guy's entrails get splattered on the screen, though.

    From this we may assume that the reason there were no female marines in Quake 4 is because they look too "human", and it's far too grisly to see a human woman getting butchered by Strogg. But it's okay to blow a Strogg with tits away because they're clearly alien/ repulsive half-organic automatons.

    The point stands though that there weren't nearly enough Iron Maidens to make them deadlier than Tanks, Medics, Gladiators, Berzerkers, Enforcers, or even those stupid Shotgun and Pistol grunts that ran around in mass numbers. They were pretty few and far between, and I would argue that running into a bunch of mooks armed with shitty laser pistols is a damn sight worse than running into a single Iron Maiden with plenty of strafing room between you and her.

Seeing somebody get killed by an industrial weapon, feasted on, then have their headless and limbless torso hung from a meathook to add some color to a room strikes me as MUCH MORE DISTURBING than just seeing them get converted into a Strogg. Because cyborgs are cool, but dismembered human remains are... well... just kind of gross really.

    I know, makes no sense.

    I would've liked to have the option even if I wasn't likely to do it.

    You COULD kill kids in Fallout, but I never fucking DID it. You could even earn a perk that made you a haunted fugitive. It was called "Child Killer" and seemed an appropriate enough punishment.

    I like the thought of having to be CAREFUL in a town while fighting random thugs because a stray bullet may catch a kid in the head and suddenly turn me into a wasteland pariah.

    The only way kids die in Fallout 3 are if you indirectly slay them by nuking a town.

    Yeah, Texas Chainsaw Massacre gave me nightmares. Seeing a woman made into a killing machine just makes me think of a Trent Reznor music video. Definitely not as hardcore.

    Strogg and quake are rightly fucked up, unholy monsters or creatures that recycle and slap anything together so that they can do it again and more.

    It's interesting how packaging works, why the classic "Zombie" in a game like L4D or resident evil aren’t a threat due to their behavior and just being desensitized, but take that same idea and just present it differently. Bam, nightmare fuel.

    A moving corpse isn't nearly as bad as "undead creature that will stop at nothing to kill you, and even after dismembering it the pieces will attack you" or "See that mass of metal and flesh? Look at its face. You talked to him before this mission."

    Here's a fun way to get the music to work if you don't have the original CD...

    There'd be plenty of pussy if these "old school gamers" weren't all fucking 10 when Quake came out and knew who the hell Helen Hobden was.

    Iron Maidens seem to only be in areas of high priority

    They "stay home and defend" the area.

    Ever noticed that throughout the two games?

    hmm, did what you said but as when i run the executable, nothing happens. Will this not work if i'm using vista?

    What do you mean by nothing happens?

    Does Quake Launch? Or is it just no action at all?

    If it's the former, go into options and change the video options to get better resolution and such.

    If it's the latter, you're sure that the file directory looks like this --> C:\(Whatever)\Quake\Id1
    Darkplaces.exe should be in \Quake\
    And pak0.pak and pak1.pak should be in \Quake\Id1
    Your directory should look something like.... Pic. Not exactly like that, but kinda close...

    Also, see this one too.

    like no action at all is what i mean.

    I downloaded the file, unzipped it, and tried to run the executable, no go. Does Quake need to be installed first?

    There is no facepalm image large enough to represent how I feel towards you right now.

    Yes, you need Quake installed first. Do that, make sure it's into the directory where Dark Places went. I don't think it will over-write anything.

    Good thing quake doesn't work with windows NT.
