You know the intermission screen from Doom 1 (That map screen with "you are here" message)?
Well this mod is that except tailored to Doom2 OBLIGE generated wads, for all four lenght settings.



I want to give a huge thank you for creating OBLIGE 7.50, I've been having endless fun playing through the maps it generated, providing me with practically limitless on-demand megawads for the rest of my life. That in itself is a big deal and I really appreciate the work that has been put into this project.

Whenever I feel like taking a short break from work, or want to indulge in a full blown 32 level campaign of non stop action in a map set that is completely random and new, OBLIGE has got me covered. It really makes my life better for providing infinite surprising content.

The only issue is that Doom 2's original scripting still remains by default, presenting the same text intermissions at levels MAP07, MAP12, MAP21 and MAP30.

This mod fixes this issue, while also providing a progression screen ala Doom 1.

Does this work with TNT and Plutonia as well? If not, are there plans to make those versions of the mod since OBLIGE also can generate map sets for those IWADs?

I have yet to play either of those, so I don't know for sure. However, looking at a glance in doomwikia, its mostly just a mappack and they use the same MAP01-MAP32 format, so I believe this mod will work fine with those. I feel pretty confident about that.

I'll test them out later to make sure, but I say it will work.

The most up to date info wiki location is http://www.doomwiki.org, not the Wikia page which is outdated and not supported by the majority of community anymore.

@Spaceman333:

Apologies. I asked my question before I had taken the time to look at the mod with an editor myself. Now that I have, I think to make it work with the other IWADs it would be a simple matter of editing the MAPINFO by changing each instance of HUSTR to either THUSTR or PHUSTR. It's actually nice that you've done the mod this simple way (by that I mean with no ACS or other advanced scripting) to make it more easily flexible.

Thanks for sharing it!

Ah thank you, that saves me the effort to check it myself. I appreciate that.  ;D

Thanks for the heads up about HUSTR. If someone asks about Plutonia/TNT compability on zdoom forums or elsewhere, I'll now have a ready answer for them.

Also happy to hear that you appreciate the simplicity and flexibility of the mod. It means my plan worked, because I actually intended this mod to act as a free resource for mappers/modder to take this mod apart and make it their own, in their own style for their own purposes.

I may as well repost the two relevant images here too:

Reposting this here as its specially relevant to OBLIGE.

NEW! Now as an OBLIGE Addon!

Thanks to the_darknut_rises, there is now a native OBLIGE addon that will automatically include this mod with any Doom 2 map.

I took the liberty of turning this into an Oblige addon:

(Dropbox Mirror)https://www.dropbox.com/s/oked0rtovcmg5gg/UniversalIntermission.pk3?dl=0
(Moddb Mirror)http://www.moddb.com/mods/universal-doom-2-intermission-screen-mod/downloads/universalintermissionfordoom2-obligeaddonedition

Download that pk3 and save it in your Oblige addons directory. Then enable it through the addon list in the menu and check the box for the module.

Then when you generate a wad Oblige will insert the graphics, music, INTM and MAPINFO lumps into it, adjusting for 1, 4, 11 or 32 levels depending on your settings. So that wad will run with the universal intermission screen without needing to load any additional wads/pk3s.

To use this edition of the mod, do this:
1. Download and install OBLIGE 7.50 (http://oblige.sourceforge.net/)
2. Download this mod, unzip it, place it in the "Addons" folder inside OBLIGE's directory.
3. Run OBLIGE 7.50.
4. Press the "Menu" button and select "Addon List".
5. Make sure "UniversalIntermission.pk3" is ticked on.
6. Press Close and Restart OBLIGE.
7. Make sure you're generating a Doom 2 map by having Game: in Game Settings be set to Doom 2.
8. On the right-side section of OBLIGE, which is called the "Custom Modules", make sure the module "Universal Intermission Screens is ticked on.
9. Now any Doom 2 maps you generate with OBLIGE will automatically have this mod included.
