The issue is that newer GZDoom releases are much more strict with custom menus: you can't override the default menus now. They'd have to be redone in the new style.

I fixed the menus by changing the menudefs to AddOptionMenu, as per my post on Oct 20th.

No, you edit menudefs and change the Demonsteele options to use the AddOptionMenu command instead of the OptionMenu command. You need to do this where the standard menus are referenced because they are now protected menus so you can only add new options to them, you cannot rewrite those menus from scratch. Any custom menus created can continue to use the OptionMenu command. So in the Demonsteele menudefs file I have the following:

Code: Select allExpand view
ListMenu "MainMenu"
{
    StaticPatch 94, 2, "M_DOOM"
    Position 97, 72
    PatchItem "M_NGAME", "n", "PlayerclassMenu"

Could I trouble the board for some clarification on what the "fake difficulty" and "for the swarm" settings do?

Btw I've been playing the crap out of this mod whenever I'm off work the last few days, so I have to say I really appreciate the craftsmanship. That's saying a lot considering the size of my steam backlog X_X Its nice to revisit it since the addition of punchy mccybergirl. I actually appreciate her design more overall, though I know her gameplay is a bit flawed. My criticisms / advice for what they're worth, which deserves a hefty grain of salt cause I don't produce shit, is to redesign her guncard side special homing missiles to something else entirely, or find a way to have the homing activate sequentially projectile by projectile or follow the cursor. If it worked like Tone's core in titanfall 2, I'd be all in favor, but right now its kind of a chaotic mess and too much resembles the forward gun special which I quite like.. I'm not sure if they're releasing cluster missiles or if they're just instant turning from a dead enemies, but cluster bombs would be better, or have the missiles cluster out from the sky. Random suggestions, but I trust your creative liberty. The speed mode seems good but the sonic trap seems a bit underpowered for energy cost when theres more satisfying options. Also I want to offer my encouragement with regards to the issues with the autopistols. Paradoxically (since I just suggested scrapping an idea) when I saw your post to switch them out for generic uzis, I think that you should stick to your creative vision rather than take the easy way out. There's no reason they can't be a good weapon, just tweak fire rates, damage, accuracy, ammo count etc until they're as battle worthy as you would fantasize them to be. Battle mode 4 turret's max power shot is truely impressive, but I feel that on the balance, the angelic armor of HaeLin is a much more satisfying ultimate weapon. Also, I think focusing your efforts on Zandro 3 at the expense of other sourceports is a fine idea, cause its my preferred one to play on ^_^

/end rant

Back to my original thing though, what are those options? For the swarm and fake difficulty? :)

for the swarm is a spawn multiplier, which is only active on the fake difficulty. there is a secret difficulty setting thats invisible, and the fake difficulty setting will let you designate which actual difficulty it uses in terms of max health/enemy aggressiveness/etc.

The obvious takeaway, given this commenter's history, is that the protagonists are not girly enough.

Also I noticed something. I've been occasionally trying to do a 1 2 combo of stungun palm to big punch special, but it isn't possible. You have to perform a normal attack animation, though holding primary fire after the secondary will prevent the hands from rising, but performing specials is no good until you've done a normal punch of some sort. This character neeeeeds to be able to followup stungun palm with hold + SS melee mode special What better way to deal with archviles after a couple well placed nades eliminate their flamey spams?

just keep cycling through the difficulty setting menu. you'll find it. :)

as for the megaton punch, its SUPPOSED to be very hard to set it up. when you have your combo chain up, the damage is kinda absurd. that said, I find that doing a forward dash and then doing the input for it while dashing forward helps with landing it.
