I find it useful for taking down larger critters, and also in situations where I might want to use both rockets/grenades and bullets. I don't use it as a mainstay weapon for the reasons you mentioned. When I need rapid fire bullets I usually use the dual pistols.

The only real thing that irked me with this mod was how seriously useless the double sawed-offs are. The standard shotgun is alot more accurate and seems to be more powerful than the sawed-offs are. Might want to buff them.
OH, and also, maybe change the text for the pick-ups? SO that they're coherent to the weapons, I mean.

The sawn offs were my favorite weapons, I'd say they're about on par with the shotgun on power per shot fired, but, like the super shotgun, they have a larger spread. They fire faster than the standard shotgun, which makes up for their small clip

also - the shotgun was always more accurate than the super shotgun, I consider it to be the closest thing doom has to a sniper rifle

Firing both shells out of both sawed-offs has the same power as two SSG shots, but an overall increased firing speed. You can kill a cacodemon with one burst, so I don't think they need any more "buffing up".

I see. So the sawed-offs is a close combat weapon good for taking out big labour like Hell Nobles, and the shotgun is for the standard variety of enemies you'll face, right?

What about when you fire the pistol, but not hold it down, or the chaingun? They're both pinpoint accurate on the first shot.

I think Captain Ventris pointed that out at some point previously, making special note of the DUAL WIELDING BOOTSPOOOOONS.

And yeah, the chaingun is Doom's sniper rifle. Or the railgun, if you count mods and/or Skulltag. :P

I'm eagerly waiting to see a change. This needs a new version or if it's being worked on badly then good. But also waiting will make it more delicious =9

Well, hope you don't mind at all for this tiny, tiny little pimp Xaser but, my YouTube channel has several vids of me playing through some TNT maps with Parkour. :P

Parkour v1.0 is out!

Not too much has changed since the last version -- luckily, the bugrate was pretty low and and it didn't need much mucking around with. Still, it's got a better status bar ammo display and enhanced compatibility with Brutal Doom Lite (with proper deaths and everything), so it's something. ;)

That should be the last call for the mod proper, assuming there's no bugs, so I've uploaded it to /idgames. I'll update the links when it's up.

Now to see if I can make a Zan-compatible version... ;)
