The aim of the mod is to "improve" upon Strife's gameplay, without stretching too far from the ideas in the original game. Multiple enemies have been enhanced, but so have your weapons.

Sounds neat! I'll have to give this a try later.

Now if we just had more Strife maps to play these mods on :)

What do you mean another Strife mod? :P

Seriously though. Are there any Strife mods out there besides this? Well anyways, I like seeing that some people play the game. Also, it's good that you thought to actually improve some of the balance flaws in the game. I'm sure it will be oodles of fun now.

Two that I can think of that are pure gameplay mods - my own "Strife Needs A God Damned Mod" and Weapons of Ruin. Also remember the ZDoom-specific Strife map, A World In Strife.

There's also Return of the Jedi Order. Khorus is working on Strife: Absolute Order. Who knows, maybe there's something Strife-related being developed in the shadows somewhere...

Yeah well I happen to have 2 Strife DM maps on my HD that I made, never bothered to release it without making more maps for it first though.

My default program for Doom is the Official release ZDoom.
This project uses A_SetScale(float scaleX[, float scaleY]) (development version r3000+ only), which is no problem at all for me, but worth noting. SVN-only features are in use.

And Mikk-'s Strife++, and Echo Path (I think that was the name of it, can't remember the author), though the latter is in limbo.

The secondary of the assault gun is useless, because if you tap the primary of the assault gun it produces the same effect but at a faster rate.

The flamethrower skips a frame after letting go of the trigger; oh and what is the point of its alt fire?

Also, can you make the punch dagger faster?

About your known issue: Getting new crossbow in conversation also gives you oririnal crossbow:
Code: Select allExpand view
Actor NewStrifeCrossbow : StrifeCrossbow Replaces StrifeCrossbow
{
   ConversationID 194
   Tag "Crossbow (Electric)"
   Weapon.SisterWeapon "NewStrifeCrossbow2"
}

Actor NewStrifeCrossbow2 : StrifeCrossbow2 Replaces StrifeCrossbow2
{
   Tag "Crossbow (Poison)"
   Weapon.SisterWeapon "StrifeCrossbow"
}

Conversation gives NewStrifeCrossbow. Link to sisterweapon NewStrifeCrossbow2. Link to sisterweapon StrifeCrossbow. Link to sisterweapon StrifeCrossbow2.

So just put "new" before the second sister-weapon?

*facepalm*
That explains a lot...

I personally don't find it "useless", I'm pretty sure you can damage things more quickly using the alt-fire. I guess I can tweak it a bit though.

First: That's a fluke I never fixed. I keep forgetting about that...
Second: The alt-fire really isn't that useful. I'm not sure what I had in mind, but what it does is spray a volley of flame projectiles at a doubled ROF. It's pretty well guaranteed to spawn phosphorus fire.

I'm not sure if I can beef it any more; it already does two A_JabDagger attacks when only one would normally be present. I'm going to make its attack a bit different anyway.

If you're short on ideas for the PunchDagger, maybe you could try that "backstab" version FDARI made?

I think its rather fine... if anything I thought fully-auto seemed a bit TOO effective in comparison to burst mode when you had 100 accuracy near the end of the game.
