NOTE: THIS MOD REQUIRES GZDOOM v3.6 (PREFERABLY NEWER) OR LZDOOM v3.8.x (OR NEWER). ALSO, MAKE SURE TO HAVE THE FIRE, ALTFIRE AND ZOOM KEYS BOUND.


QuakeStyle ZX is a gameplay mod co-authored by Xterra and Jay "Silent Zorah" Reichard that combines elements of the Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein series into a gameplay-expanding randomizer that never plays the same twice.

The mod currently features over sixty weapons, all unique and with their own quirks, features and power balancing. It also features a bestiary expanded to the point that each given vanilla Doom monster has at least three possible replacements, including an updated version of the stock baddie.

Furthermore, to aid you on your quest to rid reality of the legions of Hell, there are a ton of great powerups, ranging from the basic stuff like light-amp goggles and armor patch kits to powered armor and beyond...including the legendary Quad Damage, if you luck upon one.

The mod features an expanded difficulty selection, ranging from trivially-easy to hair-tearingly hard and everywhere in between, so Doomers of all skill levels can play and enjoy. Also, the mod features things like a monster health scouter, a weapon wheel addon, and a gore mod for you Brutal Doom types out there.

Oh, and it's got the single highest amount of quit messages in any Doom mod I know of. Over 150 of them!

So get out there, and show those hellspawn why they shouldn't have pissed you off. Play ZX today!

There is one important thing. If I recall correctly, right after gzdoom version 3.2.0 or 3.3.0 (around that period) was when gzdoom development process changed and they started requiring OpenGL 4.0 for the game to start (for you to have an idea, not even Quake, Half Life 2 or most recent shooters up until 2010 had this requirement)
What this means is that most hardware from before around 2010 will not be able to play gzdoom anymore, which will alienate a bunch of people from enjoying certain mods.
It would be awesome if you could ensure that this mod stays compatible with gzdoom 3.2.0, that way people with older computers could also enjoy it.

I really loved this mod's content when I went through Doom 2 In Name Only megawad.
I was feeling it's a very good expansion-like mod.
I'm waiting for further updates. :)

Lovely to hear. And yeah, another update will come later this year, hopefully. A relatively-mild one, mind.

Would be so cool to have a video of all the weapons, now we only see screens and they don't do justice to them.

That would be one loooooong video. As of v8.0, there's 66 weapons available to everyone, not to mention the 19 class-exclusives in Classier Bastards, for a grand total of 85.
...
Maybe one'a these days I'll get something like that up and runnin' for y'all.

And as of the upcoming v8.1, that number rises up to a cool *one hundred*.
