Testing... Testing... 1... 2... 3...

After my last post about GZDoom randomizer mods I became determined to figure out how to make one of my own.

After about two days of intensive study and work (my GF working 12-hour shifts really helped) I think I've finally finished one that I'm happy with and am about to begin intensive testing on my own. Now the question remains:

Anyone else up for testing?

The Beta/Alpha test version can be DLed here:

Herculine's Doom Upgrade


Don't be intimidated by the previous post; I've put a great deal of effort into trying to make it balanced, including the additions of some new power-ups, while still keeping it challenging.


With my add-on I've played through four maps from Gene Bird's "Blind Alley" series (which I'll post a review of later) and so far it seems that my efforts to make things more challenging and yet balanced have been fairly successful.

However, I have found a flaw. Two items, an alternative to the Lost Soul called The Terror and one of the new power-ups called the Terror Sphere, were using sprites with similar names so that in the game The Terror ended up looking like a Terror Sphere flying around. I've already fixed this so the issue will not be present in the final version of the mod.


  1. Okay... you asked for it...

    I'm adding a DL link to the post.

    I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you honestly think of it...

  2. "Ummm, hit me"

    Dude, you guys are kinkier than I thought around here...

  3. I think Satanslilhelper is rubbing off on me...
    Run with that however you like :P

  4. "Satanslilhelper..."

    The dog from The Simpsons?

  5. You know, that was my first thought, too...

  6. Lmao! I need to be much clearer on my Nexus references, but now that you mention it, I wonder if she got her name from that. I didn't remember the dog's name myself >.< Meh, irrelavent.

    I was refering to one of my Nexus friends. She refers to herself as the Goofy Goth Girl. Her in-game avatar is more than just a little kinky, and I'm assuming she herself actually is as well. Thus my previous comment.
