Control tidbits*
This wad has a variety of control styles to choose from. Use the bcom_control command to your advantage.
Here's the Syntax:
bcom_control <value>
  • strict - Player is hard restricted to 4 directional movement (Up/down/left/right) with no wiggleroom.
  • fixed - Player is soft restricted to 4 directional movement (Up/down/left/right) with little wiggleroom to move diagonally (Up-right/up-left/etc.)
  • dynamic - Player is not restricted to 4 directional movement and can move freely.
This feature in particular did not make it into initial release or is incomplete due to time constraints or other issues that came up during development Please refer to the "Issues, problems, bugs?" section of this post

Camera Control tidbits
This mod comes equipped with a custom camera that differs from the Vanilla SRB2 Camera, on top of other camera control features.
Here's the Syntax:
bcom_cam[enable/height/dist/etc.] <value>
  • enable <on/off> - Enables the use of the custom Bomber Camera in 2D mode. 'Enabled' by default.
  • height <value> - Adjusts the camera height in relation to the player. Set to '400' by default.
  • dist <value> - Adjusts the camera distance in relation to the player. Set to '300' by default.
  • advlook <yes/no> - If you're moving in a certain direction, the camera will turn to look ahead of you. Set to 'Yes' by default.
  • aimlook <yes/no> - The camera will try to follow your player along the Z axis. If disabled, it will use your bound "look up"/"look down" key. Set to 'Yes' by default.

Level tidbits
There exists both small and large size variants of the current list of stages. Larger stages are ideal for larger netgames up to 8 players, while smaller stages are ideal for netgames with 4 or fewer players. For accessibility, these stages are internally even numbered while the smaller variants are odd numbered.

Issues, problems, bugs?
  • NO CONTROLLER SUPPORT YET. Proper up/down/left/right movement is restricted to keyboard controls while in a 2D "Type of Level" mode.
  • No 3D Map Support Yet. A majority of maps in this pack are geared towards a 2D "Type of Level" mode. While there is some functionality in 3D mode, there are no 3D maps as of yet.
  • Camera starts to flicker uncontrollably? No problem! This is likely due to the experimental aimlook. Just open the console and type in bcom_camaimlook no to disable the camera for the time being. If disabled, it will use your bound "look up"/"look down" key. I'm looking to improve the camera functionality in future releases.
  • Through the various development tests I've done, the only thing I can confirm is that differing control options in 2D mode causes synchronization trouble. As much as I would love to have different control schemes for accessibility, I have had to comment out planned control options for now and made it 1 control scheme for all players. Code exists for this and I'm open to suggestions on how to make this better in a future release.
  • Otherwise, I haven't seen any other functional problems that would cause the code to suddenly stop working. However, if you do find anything that seems out of the ordinary, please report it. Any information, including what you were doing at the time of a crash (If one were to occur) helps me in finding out the source of the problem.

FAQ
Feeling overwhelmed? Wondering what you can or can't modify? Open your console with the '~` button and type in bcom_help!

This all checks out to me! I missed out on playing this in the original release, so I'm glad it's been recreated with Lua that's for sure.


Custom maps made for this gametype will use the prefix "Bo_".

This is a great mod, and all, but it was literally hard to figure out how to use the bcom_cam command.

and for some reason i can't use the bcom_control command.

How come when walking around, you instantly slow down when trying to go in other directions rather than walking horizontally or vertically?

I should point out that this mod messes with your camera settings for vanilla SRB2 if you try to run it then switch back to vanilla afterwards:

Fame is temporary, but your passions are eternal.
Doo doo doo, doo, doo, doo doo doo doo...

**proceeds to continue mimicing the Bomberman theme**
 
Played this for awhile with a couple friends. Thoughts:

- Would like to be able to move diagonally normally. Doesn’t feel very good to slow to a crawl when moving diagonally or when turning corners.
- Jumping is way too powerful. You can basically just jump away from everything, so the only thing that’s even remotely a threat is the giant bomb, and even then it’s super easy to just jump away.

We had fun for a bit, but it got boring quickly since it was basically just jumping around until the time ended.

So What Your Saying Is For This Mod To Be More Fun You Either Remove The Jump Button From Your Controls or The Developer Would Have To Turn Down The Jump Hight To a Way Lower Level

Let me say this outright, I appreciate the feedback I'm receiving in this thread.

I'm aware that the Bomberman Mod will modify your camera settings. This is partially my fault and my method of trying to mitigate the player disabling the Bomberman Camera in favor of the Vanilla SRB2 camera with the bcom_camenable or other bcom_cam* commands. I'll be updating this in the next release along with other minor bugfixes that I've been made aware about after release.

The default setting for the camera height is normally 25. You may change this back with the following command.
Code:
cam_height 25

I appreciate this feedback. The controls I've been working on and improving since early in development. During development, I found that differing control options in 2D mode can cause synchronization trouble. I've mentioned this in my original post, but I have an idea for how I may be able to make this work in a future release.
On jumping, I've heard comments ranging from the option to turn off jumping, to nerfing jumping, to removing the option to jump entirely. I'm currently looking at an option to toggle the ability to jump within a match to give more of a "classic" Bomberman feel.

I've also updated my initial post for those who want to create custom maps for this modification as well.

I specifically did not propose a solution because when I give feedback I often have this Neil Gaiman quote in the back of my head: "Remember: when people tell you something's wrong or doesn't work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong."


I trust that Flame will come up with a good solution on their own.

what do you mean by that it has lua inside of it, and it is an custom gametype inside of srb2.
