Not a bug, this is an intentional feature.

Found a minor bug: chests bleed when hit with Brimstone.

Finally, the sword is in. :D

Loving seeing the new weapons.

Damn... changes are happening so fast now... good to see that it's so alive, now! :D

After a bit more testing I have to say that the Sandman is fun, but holy shit does it eat up ammo. I'm loving the money magnet passive effect of the Philosopher's Tome, too. It makes looting so much more convenient. I also noticed that the "I smell gold" message and distance counter seems to be gone, with only the arrow there now. Was that intentional?

I'm also guessing it was intentional that Brimstone doesn't get the midas touch effect from the tome, right?

I will miss being able to have 100% damage negation from the Mana Shield tome, though...

For some reason with this update when using the shop/item/weapon/spell wheels, I can't move the cursor with the analogue stick on a controller, it did work before. Be great if you could look into it, thanks.

It should still be there, not sure why it'd be gone? Seems to work on my side.

Yup.

As much as the mod's goal is to make you feel invincible, with all other damage reductors involved, it made it a tad too good. If you wanna however still have it at full power, sv_unlimitedpickup 1 is a thing we accomodated for to a decent extent~

One question :idea: ... is it possible to add backpacks in the weapons shop area? Sometimes with the limited amount of ammo at the start and the use of the Sandman, it would be really cool to be able to raise the capacity. ^-^


Noted.

I'm using GZDoom 4.1.3, BTW. Not sure if that would be the cause or not.

While playing Sunlust I noticed that when I get Gladius Barrels, they don't seem to register in the shop as having been picked up. I've found 2 of them so far and the shop was still showing 0/3.

I ran into this, too. Picking up a Gladius Barrel doesn't register, with the shop still showing whatever number you had before, and the icon not changing, either. Buying one registers properly, though.

EDIT: After some more testing (and looking at the code), it turns out that picking up a Gladius Barrel doesn't add the Gladius Barrel to the player's inventory, it adds the Matriarch instead.

But why tho; I don't even remember having to do anything there warranting that mistake. My brain is full of wat. Ah well, fixed now.

Yo PB!
Sorry again... but if you shot with the Augur trough the Walls with the Strat, the AugurWallHack(Actor) will not remove after the Shot.
I noticed that when the sound was still at the limit of its distance.
And at the actorlist (console Info).

Been a long time since I posted any suggestions, holy cow...

PillowBlaster, do you think you could make it so that items such as the PowerSuit and Draugh Tome can have their respective activating and deactiviating items condensed into one item? This way, one could bind it to a quick-use button if one so desired, and one wouldn't need to shuffle through the inventory in order to look for the (de)activating item.

I was able to do this on my end, so it is possible. I even accommodated for summoning the Draugh when the item is used while holding the Use button, and for calling it back. With this method, it is possible to add a functionality if one so desired that allows you to even summon the Draugh directly from you wearing it, and it'll peel from your skin upon summoning it in the meantime (as opposed to taking it off and then looking for the item again to summon the Draugh). This also can work vice versa: you can make it so that you can immediately call back the Draugh and instantly transition to wearing it. On my end, I was able to then bind it to a custom keybind, and it made usage of the Draugh tome so much more efficient.

I apparently haven't done this yet (though I could've sworn I did at one point in time), but I wanted to make it so that depending on the state of the Draugh, whether it's dormant, being worn, or summoned, the singular item's icon will change to reflect that current state. It should be easy enough to do (it would require having the DECORATE counterpart of the Draugh Tome to inherit from a ZScript actor that will change its icon depending on other items present in the inventory, like what you did with other items).

I did a similar thing with the Bishop Powersuit an even longer time ago, binding both of its items into one single item, which would also allow it to be quick-used.

Would you like to see what I did? Would you consider adding such functionality to those items?

Noticed another bug. The Auger strat is missing the sparkly particle overlay on the scope, even when particle effects aren't disabled.

I already have powersuit in one item. I also want to decide whenever I wanna turn draugh tome into cash or another clone upon finding (plus there's probably some other annoying stuff I'd have to deal with if I'd do that, given if I didn't do something which would make sense - it means I have some reason for it I forgot about). So probably not planning any changes here. Best I can do is maybe force selecting the dried-up tome after using it. I don't think there's a need for a custom keybind for it either.

Pretty sure Keks decided to remove them as they didn't look that good and it was distracting. (And I'd agree with him either!)

I was confused cause I couldn't reproduce it. Then I got informed that got already fixed.

Did you praise Keks yet? No? DO EEEEET~

If Keksdose has fixed the problem, then he deserves praise. ^^
Then all I have to do is wait for a new version. :D
Thanks for the information! And thanks Keksdose! ;)
