Oops :P

I'll fix it (in the txt file) as soon as I'm back on my home computer. Otherwise, the post is fixed.

Cool, I'm glad you were able to finish this, congrats! I always play with this mod when I'm running through new levelsets, since it's close to Doom's regular gameplay but, well, expanded. :P I also really like that alternate HUD, it's got a good amount of information but it's not really cluttered.

You can thank Blue Shadow for his generous contribution to Expanded. That HUD is just great to look at. :)

Just to clarify, I think Minigunner created those SSG sprites. Glad things are going well with this project. I actually forgot to give it a go, due to real life stuff. Good luck with this. :P

I credited Minigunner, although I think it was for the gloved fist in this case. Well, at least I got you both covered.

Got something real special: Video Clips!

I know these aren't much now, but I'm going to see if I can get a full play through video up.

I still found weird the Doomguy's hands, when you shoot the double shotgun and after reloading the left (I think) hand disappears for a moment (After reloading the shotgun you see the hand at the right and then is empty there).

I would consider the logic behind the movements would be that he's gripping the handle and trigger with his right hand. Then opens it with his left, then grabs two shells with his left and shove them in the barrels, then use the left again to grab the barrels and close.

I know it can look a bit weird, but it does make sense when you think about it.

Either that, or he has really fast hands. It would explain why it looks like he never actually reloads most of the weapons.

For those keeping track, here's a 18 minute let's play of the first four levels of Doom 1 (Finishing E1M9).
I'll see about doing some levels from E2 and E3 as well.
I at least plan a video on E4 and a full play of MAP18 from Doom 2.

They usually have enough of a different spin on them that I don't mind trying them out. Each one usually builds a little bit on the past ones too, so they've gotten better over time.

Also a suggestion for the alternate HUD, would it be possible to add an indicator to it so you can tell if you've got blue or green armor? The bar does change to blue if you go over 100, but that works with green armor + pickups as well.

I believe everyone has there own preferences for how they play Doom, which is a reason why I made Expanded to begin with, it's how I felt Doom should be improved.

A lot of people want to put their own spin on their favorite game, and I was dedicated to make something really good with what I had.

I'll talk with Blue Shadow about it. It shouldn't take much.
