Well, here's the thing: in the current release version, the only thing that damages the boss monsters is direct damage. If you miss with the BFG ball, the Cyberdemon and Mastermind will not be damaged at all by the blast. This is because they have +BOSS, which stops them from being damaged by rocket splash damage.

With +FORCERADIUSDMG, +BOSS is overridden, and the BFG blast deals damage to them. It still takes about six or seven direct BFG hits to kill either one, though.

Correction, it's because they have the NORADIUSDMG flag. BOSS does nothing in regards to radius damage.

I thought +BOSS implied +NORADIUSDMG.

Nope. If it did, it would be redundant for those monsters to also have NORADIUSDMG.

I belive it did in Vanilla, and I think ZDoom split out the flag because BOSS was too effect-heavy.

Alternatively, you can give your bosses a RadiusDamageFactor. (Or DamageFactor them against the specific damage types for explosions.) Thus those weapons will still be useful against boss-types, but not too much so. Nothing annoys me like a bunch of enemies that you're basically forced to spend your heavy fire on.

I've done a ton of playing since a couple of versions ago, and have compiled a bunch of ideas you can pick through or give feedback if you wish

Pistol:

Revolver:

Double Barrel:
Have you considered yet the demon-oneshot melee range pellets with less down-range damage compromise? ;)

Trench Gun:

Most of the above gun fixes have been added (except the trenchgun and rocket launcher). I messed with the drop rates on the pistols a bit, hopefully have the Sawed-Off's "melee" capability balanced well enough (will need some playtesting), and the Lost Souls now basically just behave like original Lost Souls. No more projectiles, damage and attack rate should be identical to the originals now. I also had to go fix the Rocket Launcher to never autoselect.

Or the bosses could just not be affected by the sledgehammer's pain forcing. (e.g. instead of +FORCEPAIN, you could give it a custom damagetype and give all enemies except the bosses maximum (or at least extremely high) painchance for that damagetype. Bosses would either not have a custom chance for that type and just use normal pain chance, or just have a moderately increased chance instead of a massive one)

Last I was aware, there were also a couple of missing brightmaps on the dualies (as well as an overlooked pickup message for them). And I believe you previously mentioned that the capitalization was edited for the weapon nametags?

Yes, I am currently changing all of the pickup messages and weapon tags to be a bit more consistent (especially CORBEX and TAIGA which are not acronyms for anything, and thus are being changed to proper capitals).

Could you perchance send that to me? Spricer is giving me headaches right now.

Something interesting I found out because of this mod that I never would have otherwise: Plutonia Experiment actually has maps that assigned angles to single-frame items; most of them seem to be ammo pickups. (MAP05 displays this most prominently with the rocket pickups arranged about the Spider Mastermind's square.) Setting randomized angles would conflict with nice, but otherwise hardly noticeable, touches like that (if map authors ever consider them in the first place), but ah well - win some, lose some.

Odds are that they'll still be randomized with this, which looks more reasonable than matching with everything else or being neatly arranged.
