It should go away once you start moving. I'll have to look into it.
Also wondering, what's the music from? RotA has its own music, it just starts later in the level.

Edit: I just noticed you're using a mobile port rather than regular Gzdoom. That could be related to the problem. I noticed a few other odd things too like the music I mentioned, the blood is different (though I'm guessing you were using a blood mod) and being able to jump into some places you weren't supposed to yet, like in the puzzle room.

I guess I can't expect everything to go perfectly on the first release, try it on a PC if you can and tell me what happens.

And thanks for your interest in this project!

Edit edit:
Upon further investigation I noticed a bunch of mods in the description. Some of those would definitely break things, RotA can't really support most mods because of how many changes it makes. So that explains the other anomalies. I'm still not sure about the WASD thing.
I'd try it without mods and see what happens, and if it still happens try it on a PC.

Update: Fixed some bugs, and made a few changes to the demo map. Also replaced the lupine sounds with original ones.

Thanks Night Falls! Have you considered the Steam route?

Not really. This doesn't really seem professional enough for steam, and I've used too much of other people's code anyways. It'd definitely be cool though.

Another new update released!
Compressed all sound effects, making the file size fairly smaller
Changed the monster staggering algorithm so that monsters will flash red more often the lower your health is
Clarified the details of how the fatality dagger works
Fixed lupines still using doom demon sounds sometimes

Many thanks for this update, Night Falls! Remains a sight to behold.
PS: you can still put it on steam as a free to play title, or else itch.io?

It's possible. The project is hitting some serious roadblocks though. The complete lack of interest from practically everyone being a prominent one, as well as the fact that I can't go much further making this by myself. But thank you for the encouragement :) I'll see what I can do.
Though there still is the issue of it borrowing lots of other people's code (the flashlight, weapon sway, movement tilting, the fonts, etc.), I'm not sure how that affects things.

Hi ..sorry I didn't see you answered me ..

So I tested it without these mods ..still the same issue (I actually can't test it on PC ..but I play around 1000+ mods on my phones with Delta touch and never had such a problem ..only problem exiting with the mobile port is a control based one ..some code which let's you dash or use the mouse in specific situations doesn't work in some really rare cases )

Would it be possible that you test it on your PC ?
Nowadays (also it seems many modders and doom fans don't really like to admit it ) many people play on their smartphone ..I am sure many people would be really happy if your mod would work there completely ..cause it's an amazing one ...
You can use an Android emulator to test it ...if I would have any experience with coding I would do it myself ..but that's not the case sadly ..

Also it's only a suggestion ..what you do in the end is your decision ..
Thanks for trying to help

I did some tests a while ago, but couldn't find anything, so I assumed it was the mods or the app. I'll take another look and see if I can find anything, but I can't test it on a phone unfortunately.
If it's alright, if I find anything I could send you the file to test. Thanks for your enthusiasm!

Version 1.3.1:
Maybe potentially fixed a bug I can't test where the "Use WASD to move" doesn't go away on some mobile ports. As an added bonus, on PC it will go away if you push W, A, S, or D instead of just W.

You know this ''lack of encouragement'' thing is precisely one big issue i have with the DW forum and why these projects, if covered, get very little love. There is a stereotypical analogy that DW only likes Vanilla/Boom kind of stuff, despite that everything goes. In practice, however, this seems to be the case. Another GZDoom mod like Abysm 2 has a thread aswell, but very little love. It is, however, covered on the Wadazine of this month.

(The Wadazine is a Doom magazine that quite literally looks like its from a actual magazine stand. Editing values are rather high!)

Ill see if i can get Rise of the Abyssal covered for the next issue. If Abysm 2 gets a rightful pass, so should this.

You will likely need to maintain a credits list for the assets you use. In general, keep one anyway, people appreciate this more than most. :)

Thanks, I appreciate that. I'll try to keep things going as far as I can. There is an issue where some of the sound files corrupted when I compressed them, so I'm gonna have to sort that out, hopefully before any press coverage. But yeah, that sounds great
UPDATE:
I'm working on an update right now to fix and upgrade some things, it should be done by the end of the day.

Version 1.4:
The crossbow is now semi-automatic, so it should be less of a pain to use
The waterfall is prettier
Fixed some corrupted sound effects
Rebalanced some things
