This is great. One suggestion is an option to start a new game with dual wielding pistols, as after map 1, most people never touch pistols again

Also what is the Use models option and why is it permanently on unknown?

It's a zandronum option that allows players to switch between sprite pickups and models. But the mod isn't completely ready to be used on zandronum yet, since extra polish is required to make the bots work properly.

Also, the mod doesn't feature model pickups (yet, idk if i'll add them later, up to the complexity to make them work)

So this will be compatible with zandronum? Thats great

There's also plans to make it compatible with D-touch and low-end cellphones on a separate fork (since it requires lots of graphics downscaling and cut animations), but right now, the priority remains on the PC version.

That dual pistol function could be added on a future update, literally thought on that, but idk why I didn't added it last minute.

Perhaps can be added like a Doosk cheat, by tipying nbakimbo on console or something like that. Or perhaps a game mutator. I'll think about that possibility.

this is interesting to see & play. hopefully Zandronum options will be a thing soon. not to mention a way to play custom mapsets with this

Zandronum options will be a thing later on, once I complete and polish some things.

There's a plan to create a custom mappack for this mod, that being said, you can play already with most existing mapsets if you put them inside the "customfiles" folder.

Also, fun fact: The mod already includes 4 unfinished maps (that weren't made for doosk) to try.
Type map testx where x is a number between 1 to 4.

I'm trying to use doosk with BD21 monsters only, but I get

p_startscript unknown script "casingtype"

every time I shoot a gun


Can you fix it?

No idea what it could be, but if I have to take a guess, I think it could be that bd monsters are preventing some of my scripts to load, which is weird.

For the sake of trying, rememeber that the doosk mod should be loaded first and not the monsters.

Did the mod works ok without those monsters?

load order is not the problem. I loaded bd21monsters last. Monsters only is intended to work with all mods that don't alter the enemies I guess.

Yes it worked without it

The problem is that BDMonsters isnt the most polished thing ever. Delete anything in the BD mod relating to bullet casings and you should be good to go. Feel free to do this with any other effects that conflict to fix issues that a certain sergeant shouldve already fixed

When I drag and drop the three .pk3 files onto gzdoom.exe I always get the error "Script error, "doosk_moosic.pk3:cvarinfo.txt" line 3: cvar 'user_musictype' already exists". How can I get the music to load? I'm using GZDoom 4.3.3 x64.

Drag only doosk_base.
There's a code inside "_base" that also loads "_moosic", if both files are in the same folder.
The movement is a separate file on its own though. If you want to load the movement and the music, then drag base and movement onto gzdoom.

Thanks for the reply. Is the music just the menu music? The music that plays while playing the game is Doom's original music.

There's an option on the "mod options" menu that lets you choose between Regular Doom music and "Dusk ambience" music.
Dusk tracks are chosen at random, so you have no control over which track will play each time you load a map.

That being said, if a custom mappack have an unusual way to set music (as in, the map itself modifies the music via scripts or something) then the scripts from such mappack would work over my own script and counteract it by playing the mappack's music.

The Movement does not work:

Script error, "DuskMovement.pk3:mapinfo.dsk" line 5:
Expected identifier but got integer constant '0x32' instead.

Neither the moosic:

cvar 'user_musictype' already exists

Are you trying to load the mod on D-Touch or delta touch? (or what sourceport version)

If you're trying to load on old sourceports, then the dusk movement will not work, as it uses features from gzdoom 3.8.2 (the reason the movement is a separate addon)

If you want to load the mod without batch files, then load only Doosk_base. The mod inside contains code that will also load the music, if both files are in the same folder.

Hotfix 1 changelog (21/2/20)

Properly renamed riveter and mortar tags.

Increased Sword charged attack damage from 200 to 250.
Now fast fire totem gives you 25 hp in compensation for the 100 hp berserk used to give you.

Fixed an issue if you tried to pickup the barrel while already having a barrel, barrel would become non-solid.
Tweaked menu to make more visible some options from "mod options".
Merged options/mod options menu to help to make more visible the mod options menu.
Cropped a "questionable" image from inside the mod.
Added extra fire animations to sickles.

Is there any chance that some compromise could be reached with ammo types with cvars or something? I'm not a fan of the shared ammo between different weapons, since it gives little incentive to use the pistols or hunting rifle over the assault rifle or crossbow, for example. It's less a matter of choosing the right tool for the right job when one tool almost is always better, so I'd enjoy having that option, if possible!

I'm investigating if that's possible to achieve without making a mod fork or breaking several sourceports compatibility.

Awesome mod! Dusk has been such a soft spot of mine lately that I can't stretch enough how much I enjoy this. However, is there a way to play with the free mouse look activated and the Doom/true colour software renderer option, and not the hardware accelerated one, without losing that real 3D look? Cuz I really don't like that texture filtering that comes with it.
I'm using GZDoom 4.3.3 btw

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Software mode disables true 3d render, so looking up and down is very limited, you can never look fully up and down on software mode. Limitation from the way old engine worked on dos. Also, palletes becomes limited to original 256 colours.

There might be an option to make it look like if it were software, but still using opengl?

that being said, if you want to still use open gl and just disable the filtering then you can go to:
"menu / options / options / display options / opengl renderer / texture options"
and select "texture filter mode" to none (or any of the none variants)
That's not software mode and you'll have all features drom opengl, but filtering will dissapear.

Quick message to everyone: Someone stole the internet cable for the whole neighbourhood, so currently i'm without internet service until who knows when. Therefore, i'm unable to properly reply most of your messages in time, as I should.

In the meantime, i'll still mod doosk and some other mod's to update them kinda soon.

A 360p rips sprites of the weapons will be uploaded in few weeks, then more stuff on april.

Sorry for the inconveniances and it kinda sucks that it happened just now while i was having a rain of feedback, but welp, you never know when someone will steal some cables =P

Ok, I hope the service comes back soon, but if not, then don't worry, i'll still modding offline. It just will be way more boring without talking to people about it =P

Why isn't this compatible with regular Zmove? I've been messing around in Slade trying to figure out where the problem is but I can't. Does it have something to do with player classes? I narrowed in on that maybe being the issue but I can't seem to find a solution. Please I love these weapons but if it's this or double jump my hands are tied.

I am on gzdoom 4.3.3 if that matters, and I'd like to have both in my autoload config so I can play various wads.

Nevermind I figured it out. For anyone curious, the way to do this is to open the decorate file in the "actors" folder that is called "playerpawn" and look at the top for the part that says "ACTOR Dusk_Player : PlayerPawn". Change the part that reads "PlayerPawn" to read "Zmoveplayer". This will make the game refer to the Zmove class setup for any things which the doosk class setup doesn't cover, when PlayerPawn makes it check back with the vanilla doom player class instead. And since movement stuff isn't defined by the doosk class... there you have it. Hopefully that's helpful to someone else.

Could anyone please post a short tutorial on how to make this work? That would be neat!

I'll try to explain: First you have to decompress the sourceports located in "sourceport_gzdoom" and "sourceport_lzdoom".
When you decompress the sourceports with winrar, use the "extract here" option.
Then, you can either put a copy of your iwad of choice inside these sourceport folders or buy the classic doom games on steam and when steam asks you on which drive install the game, pick the c one, as these sourceports automatically detects them.
Then, assuming all steps were followed properly, click on any of these bat files included, and it should load the mod.

I know, i know, it is kinda overwhelming at first and I took note of some of that feedback, that's why next month, i'll upload a copy of the doosk mod without sourceports, without batch files and without directories, so that way, it will be more straightforward for those who likes to use zdl or just drag and drop.

I'm currently without internet service so I can't update it right now.

Also, i'm saving the update for next month, when a big patch hits, so that way i don't have to reupload something with cellphone data.

Sorry for the confusion and thanks for trying to give the mod a try. =P

I've been offline since february, so, sorry for the delayed response.

I'm planning to release a "files only" version of the mod for next update, together with a major doosk update (hopefully coming next month, if internet service comes back)
