ScoreDoom attempts to make playing & re-playing Doom wads more fun in both single-player and multi-player co-op, without changing the standard Doom gameplay and feel.
ScoreDoom adds an arcade style scoring system to Doom, similar to Halo3's campaign meta-game. Points are scored when shooting/killing monsters, achieving map objectives, finding secrets & map items in the quickest time possible (as well as scoring points in other ways). In single-player, each wad/wad-episode and level will have its own hi-score which can be set.
Single player has 3 modes, offline hi scoring, regular online hi scoring and hardcore online hi scoring. Offline hi scores are stored locally, online hi scores are stored on a hi score server for all to see. Hardcore only allow beginning of level saves. The chaingun, plasma-rifle, rocket-launcher & BFG all have new alt-fire modes.
There is an Add-on Pack which has over 250 new doom-like monsters and around 15 new powerups, and a cool Boss-Rush mode gets activate.
ScoreDoomST is essentially the same as ScoreDoom, but is built with the newly released Skulltag source-code. Skulltag was created for fully-fledged client-server Doom multiplayer internet gameplay, and ScoreDoomST takes advantage of this for competitive co-op games.
Media on this profile mix and matches both ScoreDoom and ScoreDoomST, so my apologies of it is confusing.
I finally got around to fixing ScoreDoom to use GZDoom’s awesome alternative HUD. Its a much slicker and informative layout. The old HUD I never really liked much.
3.0R4 also awards total kills, total secrets, total barrels and total items bonuses as they are accomplished, but the bonuses are still scored at the end of the level.
Here is a preview with a description:
K, I, S, B are the Kill, Item, Secret and Barrel counts for the level.
LS, WS are the Level Scores and Wad Scores. If you are taking on a hi score in single player, or trailing in co-op, the leader’s name is shown along with the spread that you are behind by.
TL is the time left before the scoredoom par time is hit for the level, whereby you will get serious penalties for not finishing the level.
MD is the game mode in single player. It can be RG for Regular mode, or a combination of HC for Hardcore mode, PS for Pistol Start mode, NI for No-Infighting mode (also means monsters dont damage each other as well)
