Ok, been a while since I came here. Sorry for any late replies :P

Before I cover any of the new posts theres some important information I need to hand out.

We recently moved our git repo over to github! Our new link to the repo is https://github.com/Mythotic-Tinker-Station/lexicon

Seeing as most people gave github accounts, this was a good move to move the repo to. I will be asking if there is any bugs or suggestions please use the issue tracker on github to report them.

I'll update the OP thread later. Anyhoo.

Even using the console to give yourself the votegun, the votegun has no effect at all. This affects LegenDoom and Final Doomer at the very least.

I understand that it's a cool feature and a neat way of choosing maps, but I think a more mod-compatible method of selection would be a better choice for a multi-mapset compilation.


That is strange, although our focus is zandronum its possible theres issues. I have raised it with my dev team so we can discuss what we can do but im pretty sure I might need more information. If you could do me a favor and raise an issue at https://github.com/Mythotic-Tinker-Stat ... con/issues for me for tracking purposes and we'll look into it

The "Compendium" multi-WAD compilation mod just has you walk straight into a portal with the .WAD's title screen on it. Think that would be a better idea?


Possibly. We had switches before but the convience of shooting stuff is something we liked. Something to try in either those two mods, you techically should be able to use any gun to select a map. Does this work?

I've never done so before, but I'll give it a shot and hopefully not make a mess for you, hahaha

To throw my hat into the 'mod not working' thing, every mod I've tried have some issues. From Gmota's menu not loading to some mods flat out not working. While vanilla this is nice, this isnt really mod friendly

No worries. You may have noticed Tribream added an alterntive method for voting a map for the next version. Im hoping we can release it soon. It is just a patch/bug fix release.

Sorry that you feel that way.

Tribeam just made a quick change for me where all scripts are named instead of numbers just in case somethings conflicting.

Please bear in mind the lexicon does have a bit of a focus for zandronum since its purpose was to make server hosting easier by allowing people to vote a mapset so some gameplay mods (especially those that do not work on zandronum) may have not been tested yet. Not saying this is bad however and if any issues crop up id be happy to get them looked into, all you need is to raise an issue at https://github.com/Mythotic-Tinker-Stat ... con/issues

I'd recommend an issue per mod you tried for tracking purposes if thats ok :)

One workaround I've found, for the majority of gameplay mods, is that you ARE still given the votegun, it just isn't selected automatically, and isn't defined in player classes' weapon slots. In such cases, you can pull down the console and type use votegun in order to be able to vote on a level. You will generally be given your actual default equipment once you enter the actual levels.

It's entirely possible that it not auto-selecting might be the fault of the neverswitchonpickup setting being on (I highly dislike auto-switch).

Well there were a lot of them. From the old Terminator mod to the recently updated Doomreal. I'll see what I can do. Otherwise, this is a fanstastic collection of maps
