but one thing I would love to see added if possible that is sharing upgraded weapons,
what I mean by than is some time playing with my friends one of use gets lot more junk than the other,
and so we would like to upgrade a weapon and drop it to the other player, but the other player doesn't get the upgraded weapon nor the even like 20/60 junk put in it.
The player who pick up the weapon gets nothing but the default weapon no upgrades or upgrade points put into it, but the player who dropped it can pick it up and get it maxed out or such.

Hopefully its not too difficulty to add at least i don't think so, but then again i don't know much


You cannot drop partial upgrade tokens for other players, those are marked undroppable. You also cannot drop blueprint upgrades. You can, however, drop full primary upgrades to another player, but it must be done manually. Use this list of token names to know what to drop for other people:
Code: Select allExpand view
Macheterang:     MacheteUpgrade
SpikeBomb:       PipeUpgrade
Sidekick:        SideUpgrade
Colts:           ColtsUpgrade
Fleshrends:      RendUpgrade
ChromeJustice:   ChromeUpgrade
Eliminators:     EliminatorUpgrade
FMG:             FMGUpgrade
Leadspitters:    LeadUpgrade
Patriarch:       PattyUpgrade
Bitchmaker:      BitchUpgrade
Skullthrottle:   ThrottleUpgrade
Paintrain:       PaintrainUpgrade
Nutcracker:      NutterUpgrade
DoubleDeuce:     DeuceUpgrade
Conqueror:       ConquerorUpgrade


eh? but I have dropped blueprints by just pressing the item drop key
some stuff I wasn't able to drop was like the "piss bran whisky" "jetpack" and such,
but blueprints on the other hand are 100% droppable, even after you craft them i remember me and my friends sharing a blueprint for the "piss brand whisky" for a whole game.
If thats a bug and not intended please don't remove it and make it into a proper feature.
And would it be too hard too add some code to so when a player drops a weapon thats upgraded it drops the upgraded one
as you sayed if not the partially upgrade one [as in some junk put into it i.e. 20/70] is out of the question, [Oh didn't ask for droppable junk but if a weapon has some junk invested in it should keep that in it for other players, sorry for the misunderstanding]
but if there are already different weapons and models for upgraded weapons so why not just make them droppable as well, cant be that hard to run a check on weapon drop to see if its upgraded or not right?
Again i don't know much about that.

I ask for this because of 2 reasons
1. Doing it manually will just kill the pacing so hard no one would want to keep playing
2. its gone be needing Sv_cheats 1 and Mama didn’t raise no cheater. XD

Oh and while me and my friends where messing around we found one small bug,
If drop a weapon [lets say for a friend who died or something] then you go to upgrade a different weapon, it upgrades the dropped weapon or some random weapon,
gonna be honest haven't tested it much.

You can drop blueprints, yes. That's a feature - blueprints specifically aren't removed from the inventory in multiplayer after use, for sharing. But upgrades you get from them can't be dropped.

The names I shared are for full primary upgrades, gained from using the tinker's toolbelt to fully upgrade a weapon. Those can be shared by using the dropitem command in console. Partial upgrades cannot. This mod was made before any ZScript fanciness so all of the tokens weapons check to see if they're upgraded are all inventory items.

ah
I see so as I thought partial upgrades are out of the question,

Oh and is there any command just to give "junk" to yourself or another player?
that would solve the problem I guess, if we are gonna use Sv_Cheats to spawn weapons might as well give the other player some "junk" so he can just upgrade his own weapon.
>Or a command to drop those "junk" pickups I guess.

>Or the best way I can think of a slider in mod-option to change show much likely is "junk" spawn or drop,

hope I am not asking for too much, because me and my friends sometimes play 4-Player coop and such and there is not enough junk to go around
Also some weapons just disappear on pick up, thats another thing tho
i.e.
F.M.G [map spawned] stays after pick up so there player can pick it up too all good.
but the Eliminator [Map spawned] the leave action one just vanishes when picked up buy the first player.
but the alternative for the Eliminator, the Chrome Justice dose stay on pick up.
we have SSG replacement set to randomized
so sometimes we all get a gun, the other times is a fuss over who gets that one gun.
"is this something related to random weapon spawning or something?" i thought so i changed it to Eliminator only, but it didn't fix it still disappears on pick up,

Oh while I am at it, one more thing not a problem but kina of strange
When I first load trailblazer for multiplayer we used are normal coop.cfg for you know dmflags and stuff and enemies wouldn't drop weapons so I checked all the flags one by one and turns out if you have the flag Spawn multi. weapons off, they don't drop anything so I turned it on, I used to think it was for deathmatch weapons spawns, I have turned it on and did thing change anything but enemies drop weapons now, first mod when I have had turned on that flag.

and that makes me thing he weapon disappears might be a flags thing? idk these are the flags we use "+dmflags 1061748736 +dmflags2 268435456"
so I tried it with both the dmflags set to 0 didn't fix it either.

Edit
oh and +sv_weaponstay 1 didn't do anything either, added it to the config then, when the game was runing typed in "sv_weaponstay "ture" defalt "false" "

Oh and
"Explosions are your friend!"
For being a master exploder, this guy can be barely scratched by the carnage he causes, making barrels he explodes, and grenades he launches quite harmless, compared to what they should actually do with him.


so are the Explosions supposed to be harmless or reduced damage,

If we use Sv_Cheats 1 in multiplayer explosion do zero damage again, but sometimes they start doing damage again.
With out the use of Sv_Cheats 1 in multiplayer Masochism mode on or off, change nothing exposition still do full damage


Ok so I did the Sv_Cheats 1 multiplayer testing by using "give all"/"IDKFA", byt when i did all the testing without that, [My bad I am really sorry]

Turns out>
- in singeplayer explosion do damage full damage Masochism mode is set on or off [The same damage like it changes nothing, not like they do damage as in low and high but the same damage]
but when using "give all"/"IDKFA", they do zero damage.
- explosion do damage full damage Masochism mode is set on or off in multiplayer. [The same damage like it changes nothing, not like they do damage as in low and high but the same damage]
but when using "give all"/"IDKFA", they do zero damage.

So now I have two questions
>so are the Explosions supposed to be harmless or reduced damage?
>is Masochism mode broken? like do explosion don't extra damage with it on, or are the already doing full damage with it set to off?

Edit 2
and what item could it be that "give all"/"IDKFA" that makes you immune to explosions?

Master Exploder
Immune to own explosions. Barrels have occasionally way more powerful explosions. Monsters drop Blastspheres.


I am just plain stupid sorry, but still
>so are the Explosions supposed to be harmless or reduced damage?
>is Masochism mode broken? like do explosion don't extra damage with it on, or are the already doing full damage with it set to off?

Oh and this might not be a problem for me but it might me for someone else,
Seasick simulator/KeksTilt when turned off makes the weapon models stutter when moving as in the weapon bob animation gets all choppy and stuff,
for now I have just kept it on and lowered all the sliders to zero, and allow pitching off.
so thats that
Tried using dev builds of GzDOOM solved the
Seasick simulator/KeksTilt when turned off makes the weapon models stutter, so thats an engine side bug, but what about the jetpack and not working if you are not in motion?
and still taking full damage from explosions with Masochism mode off, or not taking extra damage with Masochism mode on in the dev builds as well :/

Also AutoMap shows keys[dat a cheat]
Checked in options
show keys set to off
always show keys set to off
if maybe related in mod options key sharing is also set to off

At this point I think there is some Knows bugs page and I am just blind.

So you guys don't have to waste your time on the light novels I am writing on the forms, i put all them into one post.
Known Bugs The Trailblazer v1.5d & GzDOOM v4.5.0
    1. AutoMap shows keys, as if "Always show keys" is set to on.
    2. The jetpack item does not function from a standstill.
Spoiler:

    3. Masochism mode is not functional.
Spoiler:

    4. Weapon bobbing jittery with Seasick simulator/KeksTilt disabled.
    5. Eliminator does not stay after pickup in multiplayer.
    6. With the flag "Spawn multi. weapons" set to off enemies do not drop weapons upon death in multiplayer.
    7. Dropping or sharing weapons in multiplayer may completely break the upgrading system, in many different ways.
    8. Reloading the F.M.G rifle moves the player view/aim to the right slightly
Spoiler:


Some Visual glitches[Using OpenGL]
    1. The tracer for the fully upgraded F.M.G rifle look like they are coming from the scope instead of the barrel.




    2. "Uranium Shot" blueprint upgrade for the Eliminator does this sometimes,

    So this is how it normally looks.

    But then sometimes this happens.

    The visual effect gets bugged horizontally so no matter when u aim on the wall the effect is always on the top end of the wall.
Suggestions
    1. A slider in Mod-Option to change how likely is "Junk" to spawn or drop.

On GZDoom v4.5.0, there appears to be a conflict between m8f's Precise Crosshair addon and Trailblazer: when both are loaded simultaneously, the Precise Crosshair fails to show up at all, though the standard, static GZDoom crosshair works as normal.

The culprit is this line in ZMAPINFO.txt:
Code: Select allExpand view
gameinfo
{
   ...
   eventhandlers = "tb_playerhandler"

EventHandlers property specifies event handler list, overriding any existing event handlers, thus disabling any mod that works through an event handler and that is loaded before Trailblazer.

Changing this line to AddEventHandlers fixes the issue.

TL;DR: edit ZMAPINFO or change the load order.

The team might have figured it out by now, but it looks to be an issue with the railattack's puff, possibly that its spawning inside the raised sector and thus getting its height adjusted. Tested with nointeraction and it fixed it, so figured i'd throw that out there just in case it's helpful.

Edit: also mentioned this in the CorruptionCards topic, but when pairing the blursphere card with trailblazer, the Eliminator and Conquorer's firing frames have a black background, specifically when paired with the 'CCards_Actor_TogglingBlurSphere' actor from there. Those weapon sprites are the only ones I saw that did the black background and then additive rendering overlay, so i feel like that might be the culprit. Figured I'd mention it here as well in case he's not able to fix it on his end.

I'd probably figure what's wrong eventually, but that speeds it up, thanks.

Eeeeh, more like not exactly feeling like fixing it; I guess I have a method to remove the black backgrounds from those, but I noticed that the light from the flash had lost some of the volume whenever I did that. EDIT: I guess I'll do that to fix it in case of that bug anyway, shouldn't be that much noticable, might be me just seeing things, either.

Mod_till_crash wrote:stuff


1. Intentional feature.
2. Fixed; made it not respond unless you hold directional key.
3. I think at some point I was doing some shenanigans and removed it, since it wasn't my addition anyway. I should remove the menu entry or re-add that stuff, wherever that was... probably playerclass.
4. That'll probably be fixed after new gzdoom release.
5. Not much I can do about it, given the way dualies are handled.
6. Weird.. But given item drop shenanigans in TB being an absolute hot mess, doubt I can fix it without killing my sanity.
7. Zhs2 kinda said stuff like this is supported, but... Not exactly. I'd rather not touch that too extensively. I went around in a way where mostly you can just trade blueprints, if anything.
8. Yep, intentional; I think I wanted to add it to more weapons but I kinda forgot about that, lol.

FMG tracer - Probably cause I was messing with attackzoffset and missed adjusting that.
Eliminator shots - I guess you can see the answer above for that.
Junk slider - I feel this would require from me a bit more tinkering than I am willing to do atm, but will think about it, it's the thing about item drop shenanigans in TB being an absolute hot mess again.

This isn't exclusive to Trailblazer, it's a common (though not-so-commonly-occurring) issue with puffs being spawned in the DOOM Engine. Something funky about map anatomy and "line normals".

It even happened in my own mod, though other scripters were able to cook up some super-advanced ZScript to get it to spawn properly in most cases... reducing the occurrences even further.

Ah thanks for clearing all of this up for me, at this point I have gotten so used to all of it because the game flow is quite good.
There no need to burn yourself out over it, I am glade that we have the mod in the first place,
Again many thanks for all of the this.

Minor Bug Report
Key Display on the HUD is not clearing in between maps. Key functionality works as normal, seems to be purely a display issue.
This happens with both versions of the HUD. Tested with a fresh GZDoom (4.5 and the latest dev build) install and the issue persisted. Also tried altering the various settings related to keys but nothing changed.
Likely related, but if cheating to give yourself keys, the do not appear on the HUD but function as normal.

Iz fixed in the development version, seems like? Pretty sure that had to be an error on our side, but if it works, I ain't complaining.

That'd be me missing some vital parts to how nu-Keyshare scripting works as I went about backporting it from GC - I've decided to give it a quick fix and reupload the file. Redownload plz (did the same for RO).
