Okay, so in today's updates, I've added the grenade parts (rare-ish drops from bombers), slightly (very slightly) increased the chances of a taser battery dropping, and added weapon experience sliders to the Terrorists Options menu (along with a handful of "default" settings). I recommend the 1X Default for WADs of 3-10 maps in length, and 4X Default for megawads, but feel free to mess with them.

NOTE, though, that currently the weapon experience bars are broken, so you will presently not be able to tell exactly how much experience you need to level up. I'm considering ways to get around this.

I had missed this before: this is an unfortunate side-effect of a slight overhaul that the Mateba has been getting recently. PillowBlaster had sent me a revamped Idle frame for the Mateba carbine, but I don't yet have equivalents for the open and flashed versions of that sprite. If I can find time (and editing chops) to do it, I'll see about getting the other parts replaced sometime this week.

I've never experienced that. Do you have more details to provide?

Ok found out why. everytime I start the game I use the enter button, and the enter button in game is connected to the use inventory button......so why does the use inventory button toss a grenade?

since every IWAD doesn't have or need any of customized items, so grenades does count as a common item to use with.

When you play WASD + mouse, it is nicer and easier to bind grenade button near the WASD keys.

then again, You can just bind use inventory to e (which I usually do for the majority of wads to quick use held items). point is, the system is redundant.

I never liked or wanted that. I just didn't think it was appropriate or necessary of me to remove it when weasel created it.

The grenade button was mainly added to prevent the grenades from being in the way of anything that happens to use the inventory bar. I'm not sure why Use Inventory is making them respond, though, unless I just forgot to add inventory bar support on this mod instead of doing the proper thing and giving the grenades -INV_BAR.

I put the grenades in the inventory bar so I could use my existing Use Inventory key instead of having to panic and look elsewhere for a means to throw them.

A new version has been uploaded. Get it here.

Changelog:
  • Most of Ed the Bat's fixes are mainlined. This includes, primarily, changes to code formatting, but also includes many new entries in the options.
  • Terrorists! Options menu added.
  • New option: Toggle weapon experience gains on/off.
  • New option: Recoil multiplier slider. Ranges from 0 (no recoil) to 20 (20x normal). Default is 1.0. I don't recommend going above 5x, but it's up to you...
  • New sliders relating to weapon experience gains. Several "default" options are available as well; I recommend the 1x Default setting for short map packs, 4x for megawads, and 0.5x for single level wads.
  • New option: Shell casing lifetime. Useful for large maps. Previous default is 1000 (in tics).
  • Civilians no longer attract autoaim.
  • Bombers will very rarely drop packs of grenade parts that will upgrade your grenades.

Things that haven't been changed yet: I haven't fixed the Magnum sprites yet.
