Why would one want to shoot health bonuses? :P

Really? Let me check that out.

EDIT: Hotfix uploaded, thanks for reporting that!

I made them shootable because they're made of this very fragile material we call - glass. ;)
And while Enjay was beta testing he told me he loved to shoot them, and that they had a satisfying sound.

They're more useful being picked up for 1 point bonus health than shot and wasted.

You listen to Enjay too much. :P

Well I suppose you could say it's more of a challenge, then. Be careful! :)

Ugh I thought you were doing a new source port project (Revisions made me think about svn revisions) ... silly me :mrgreen:

Heh, sorry if that's what you were hoping for. You won't be seeing a source port from me anytime soon. :)

By using the Alt-Fire key, the player can now shoot only one barrel of the Super-Shotgun at a time.
ftfy. (Also, odd behaviour: if you shoot both, you automatically reload. If you shoot one barrel at a time, after the second shot you must hit (alt)fire again to reload. Why not make it consistent?)

Aggravations:
right-handed pistol boo hiss
proprietary rar archive
despite all other changes doomguy's eyes still on his tits
footsteps that sound like someone is following you
pistol one-shots former humans making them even more utterly pathetic
can gib with pistol but not berserk fist
weapons empty on pickup, a fact that cannot be anticipated before you shoot a pickup the first time
reload function not bound to +reload
arbitrarily replaced rocket sprite
reduced plasma rate of fire without anything to counteract that nerf (which is combined with the reload interrupt along with the "always twitch the gun back after firing" vanilla anti-feature, making the gun feel generally unreliable even if it may still remain comparable in dps to the chaingun)
arbitrarily replaced bfg sound, with a sound from star wars associated with a much less than bfg-level weapon

Mitigations:
love the new/restored Wolfenstein stuff.
everything "feels" like it fits together pretty well, reloading and footsteps notwithstanding.
the rocket sprite actually works pretty well - it's much, much easier to see and gauge distance.

Mystifications:
any particular reason why the player is slowed down?

I bet he isn't.

Owait! :shock:

Yeah, I really liked the satisfying little smash sound that the health bottles give when they are destroyed. IMO, it also adds another mini-challenge to the game: if you want to play for 100% items, you have to be careful to look after the health bottles to ensure that they aren't smashed before you pick them up. Of course, 1% health can be useful (especially as it can take you above 100) but I often don't bother with picking up a single bottle sitting on its own when I have a reasonable level of health and so shooting it gives me something else to do with it. :P

There are some that might say listening to me at all is too much. :P



Nice to see this released. I'll grab the finalised version and play it soon.

Thanks for the report! Some things are still incomplete. It's still in the beta stage. I wanted to get this out there so I could get to work on my bigger project. But I'll try to squeeze in some time to fix everything you just reported.

I could've sworn I added the +NOEXTREMEDEATH flag on the bullet-puff actor. Anyway, I removed the ability to gib with your fist for reasons. Would you, or anyone else like it back in?

I couldn't find another sound (but I actually liked it - *pew pew pew*). Do you have any?

When I first loaded this last night for whatever reason I couldn't make the teleporter tower jump in Map15 without using the jump key. Now it's fine and I have no idea what happened. o_O

Anyway, after years and years of seeing the little mooks get gibbed by the berserk fist it looks very wrong to see them never do so now.

I don't even see why the BFG sound needs to be messed with in this mod.

Will be added.

.... Because, well... The BFG doesn't have a firing sound. It just uses the charge sounds, and the BFG Ball's See-Sound. And with all of those fancy offsets, it would look and sound very wrong if I used the vanilla sounds instead of actually adding an attack sound.
