Matt, there’re a couple of gameplay features that are a bit of an accessibility issue for people with photosensitive epilepsy: the visual throbbing effect when in severe pain (e.g., Imp attacks) and all the full-screen flickering when the player is on fire from balefire or Archfiend’s projectiles once they catch up with the player. Would it be possible to add some in-game options to disable or at least minimize these effects?

I try to avoid making stuff like this optional because it inevitably leads to exploits or bugs that I never catch for years because I never touch that setting after implementing it.

That said, we are all definitely better off without the throbbing flash.

Shield cores in your inventory are being dumped by the Purge Useless Ammo bind.
Marines sometimes dump an entire mag trying to shoot themselves at the start of a map. They stop once they have to reload, and they don't seem to ever actually succeed in their efforts, but the gunshots are a bit annoying.
Any thoughts on improving the Archvile's attack? It lost almost all its damage potential with how much better our fall tolerances are now. Pretty much the worst it can do is make you drop your weapon, unless it happens to lift you into the line of sight of a Cyberdemon.

Any idea where these marines come from and whether they're supposed to be friendly?

Map-placed chaingunner spawns, not friendlies. Could be related to the small amount of balefire damage marines seem to take upon spawning?

I was noticing this too, but fairly rarely, and the shots seem to have been aimed straight down? Not sure if that's what happens when there's no proper target or if that's how the AI tries to attempt to hit itself since its hitbox is always behind the point of origin of their attacks.

And with that I went from "intractable problem that could be anything" to "oh yeah I forgot that lol"

At least I hope it's what I think it is...

That seemed to address it. I've reloaded Bloodfalls several times and haven't heard any shooting.
Typo in the mag manager:

That very well might have been one aspect addressed, but it still seems to happen, and apparently can get quite pronounced to the point of jittering your view sprite/crosshair up and down by around 50% of it's original position, looks hilarious. Can't find a trigger for it yet. Most recent was going up a short slope about 10 feet tall, and then it was cleared upon bracing, then switching to fists while braced.

Sure thing. Quick, sloppy video:
Spoiler: vid
Now it seems that the severity is affected by the bulk you're carrying. Swore before, though, that this effect cleared on its own through bracing, weapon switching, or some other manner of combination, but this time it persisted. Perhaps it was a case of picking up heavy, full vulcanettes for their ammo, and then having the effect clear when I dropped the vulcanette, and shaving off around 200-250 bulk. I don't remember the bug persisting with one particular gun before, until this recording. Had this happen with a vulcanette, slayer, and I believe ZM66.

That is... completely different than what I'd been imagining based on the description, lol

I'm not able to get it yet but I am getting something else that might be related.

It may be fixed now, not sure.

Not entirely sure if that fixed it or not (I'm guessing so, but time will tell,) but the view bob tweak definitely busted the remote cameras on the robots when you use movement inputs to control robots.

Got a couple strange interactions with player shields. Shrapnel almost completely ignores player shields, causing wounds and tearing radsuits while inflicting next to no damage on the shield itself. The same situation with an enemy shield sees the shrapnel completely blocked, even if it's an IED exploding directly under them. Also, if you're wearing a radsuit under a shield, regular bullets will be completely stopped and fall out of the air instead of the normal behavior of being absorbed by the shield and passing some bashing damage through to the player. I can rationalize the suit absorbing the slight impact that comes through the shield and I think that's good mechanics even, but I'd think the bullets would dissipate on contact with the shield regardless of what's underneath.
