Shadowmaker is a Doom mod that focuses on the Invasion game mode using the Zandronum game engine. With Shadowmaker, the player will be forced to fight against waves of monsters, from the easy tier to the most challenging tier of monsters and waves. Additionally, Shadowmaker uses Shane Strife's Doom music collection. After completing specific set of waves, the music will automatically change and get the player's heart pumping for the next upcoming wave. Shane Strife's Doom music collection is faithful to the original Doom music yet is also fresh to the player's ears, the player will never get tired of hearing the rocking tunes. Moreover, Shadowmaker focuses on a dark and unique aesthetics. Shadowmaker tries to surround the player with a dark atmosphere and pure ambiance by using lighting and unique aesthetics. Furthermore, with using the Zandronum game engine, mutliplayer is supported. Shadowmaker can support eight or more players within the game, though the Zandronum game engine supports a maximum of sixty-four players at once. Thus, playing alone is not a requirement when playing this project. Grab some friends and start slaughtering some monsters!
=========================================================================== Advanced engine needed : Zandronum 3.0 or better Primary purpose : Invasion =========================================================================== Title : Shadowmaker Filename : shdwmkr Release date : 21.September.2016 Author : Nicholas "Tiger" Gautier Email Address : SibTiger_And_Life@hotmail.com Other Files By Author : TGRDM1 https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/deathmatch/Ports/s-u/tgrdm1 TGRDM2 https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/deathmatch/Ports/s-u/tgrdm2 TGRCP1 https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/Ports/s-u/tgrcp1 STFBall2 https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/deathmatch/skulltag/stfball2 Amisery https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/deathmatch/Ports/a-c/amisery TGRDM3 https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/deathmatch/Ports/megawads/tgrdm3 Misc. Author Info : Ich liebe Siberian Tigers :) Description : This is my first attempt on making an Invasion map, hopefully it meets up to standards and expectations of a traditional invasion game. This map contains seven waves, in which the player will have to fight through mounds of demons and hellspawn. To spice the waves up a bit, I have included different music to play through every few waves. Moreover, this is a contribution submission to Zandronum's Community project: Invasion Unleashed [ https://zandronum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=43155#p43155 ] Furthermore, I will note that the light house - isn't exactly the way I imagined. The light house just doesn't seem like a light house without some sort of halo or a strong indication of the source hosting an actual light. When the player is in side the light house, the point light is enough to demonstrate that the light house's light source is active, but from a-far - it isn't as it is simply way too dark. There has to be a better way to make the light house actually seem like a light house, but I am unsure as to how. If anyone has a solution, feel free to make it happen. In addition, do note that the SkullTag Resources is required to play this map. With that said, the load order has to be specific. Load Order must be the following: SkullTag_Contents.pk3 shdwmkr.pk3 The link to the SkullTag Resources is provided below under "Other files required". Why is this map called Shadowmaker? Primarily from this song by Apocalyptica: Shadowmaker [ https://youtu.be/MtUU5AP4XZg ] VIDEO RENDERER NOTES ------------------------- OpenGL _IS_ required when playing this map. This map utilizes dynamic lighting as a source for lights and effects, as well as 3D Slopped Floors. PERFORMANCE NOTES ------------------------- This map might be rather resource and rendering intensive on various systems abroad. Here is a few Console Variables that could help a bit by disabling some special features based on the Zandronum [GZDoom] engine: Line Mirrors (Software Renderer) R_DrawMirrors [True|False] Line Mirrors (OpenGL Renderer) GL_Mirrors [True|False] Sector Reflections GL_Plane_Reflection [True|False] Dynamic Lights GL_Lights [True|False] Render translucency effects R_DrawTrans [True|False] Toggle Rendering Precision GL_Render_Precise [True|False] Additional Credits to : RESOURCES AND ASSETS ------------------------- This a brief list of credits, for more information and links to the resources, please see the Credits.txt located in the /documents/ in this .pk3 archive.

Playing any Doom mod is quite easy with today's modern source ports and tools. 1. Download the mod you want to play 2. Be sure that you have the desired Source Port ready to use 3. I would recommend using a 'Front-End' program. List of known Front-End programs: https://zdoom.org/wiki/Frontend This front-end tool will allow you to easily load any number of mods directly to the source port. If you choose not use a front-end program, you can still accomplish the same effect by using the Command Line [ https://zdoom.org/wiki/Command_line_parameters ] 4. Configure the front-end program as needed 5. And finally, play!
