This stays one of my favorite randomizer mods! Thank you for all the updates.

Feature request: weapon icons in Inventory.AltHUDIcon property. For most of the weapons pickup sprites act as a viable substitute, but there are no icons for Double Knuckles and Z-Gun, and icons for dual-wielded weapons are the same as for their single-wielded variants. Asking this for certain weapon selection mod support. ;)

Hi there dear Doom dudes, just announcing that I have published a few minutes ago a hotfix release of the H-Project mod. This small update includes the following changes:

    - Removed the SPF_INTERPOLATE flag from several Decorate lumps of the mod, because they were causing a strange visual behaviour when using Mouse Look feature and firing simultaneously certain weapon types. It seems that this flag doesn't work properly and it was provoking somehow an undesired wobbly effect when aiming and shooting with the mouse. And as I have tested, it affects to the latest GZDoom and LZDoom versions, so the flag has been temporarily deleted until the issue gets fixed. (Thanks to StroggVorbis for the report). :thumb:

    - Included Inventory.Icon and Inventory.AltHUDIcon auxiliary properties for each and every weapon in the mod, for adding extra compatibility with GZDoom/LZDoom's alternative HUD and some other external addons or mods. (So then, your request has been accepted, my friend M8f, now you can proceed with what you already know...) :wink: :biggrin:

I recommend all of you to get your updated copies by accessing to the available download links at first post, as usual... Cheerio, everyone! 8-)

Glad you like it, hope you keep enjoying and having fun mate! :cheers:

Yes, indeed I'm planning carefully and making preparations to implement that feature, which will probably see the light in the future R8 update.

However, I don't know how long will take me to complete it, so I couldn't give a precise release date at the moment. So be patient, I'm sure the results will be worth it. :wink:

Thanks.I cant wait to play this. :D :D :D
also i think you can get some idea from Doomgal companions.their behavior is most sophisticated among all minion modes i have seen.They follow order,can be called back to player and wait.But the are overpowered(like all other minions deals huge damage and have high health(1000))
You can check ISABELLE and Deltarune Companion too. :idea: :idea:

I can't say that I really liked this mod. For some reason, this is not what I expected (although I can't even say exactly what I expected); for me, there are too many things here, and I'm somewhat lost in it; somehow, even with more powerful weapons, I can't cope with the local monsters, although I don't play on high difficulty (usually I play on medium difficulty and do not experience any problems, so this is not my nature). Maybe I had a lot of bad luck, or maybe it was the fact that I was playing solo therefore it wasn't so much fun. Probably, I should play with this mod not alone, but with friends (it seems to me that then the first impressions would definitely be different from the current ones).
BUT, not the most positive impressions still do not say anything and I do not claim that the mod is bad and does not deserve attention. This is just a subjective assessment. Maybe, like I said, I should just play it with my friends, and get a better handle on it (what if I missed something?). And of course, I cannot underestimate the efforts of all those who worked on this project. It is very commendable that so many weapons, monsters, items, some optimizations and features are added, and it all looks organic and combines in technical terms - it does not bugging and does not give errors, although usually something can go wrong for me (or again, I was just unlucky). Well, a certain degree of randomness also still adds to the fun in an exceptionally good way. This is better than monotony and predictability, although it increases the complexity. Separately, I would like to note a couple of things: I really like the sounds and interface design. The health bar makes the game more convenient. And I also respect the decision to make hit detection which also makes the game more convenient, while making this function, as far as I know, is not so easy. I appreciate the efforts of the development team and I want to say thank you for this ambiguous, but still experience.

Pretty sure auto aim was not meant for this mod like a hand full of other mods too. :|

Wasn't expecting the female demons, almost ended up dying to an Impette after getting pelted by her spikes while I stood there like a deer in headlights begpre a slice of pizza gave me the health I needed. I can only imagine how much crazier this mod will get. :0

Hi there again Doomguys, how is it going? Well, I hope! Just announcing that there is available right now a minor update (but recommended) release of the mod, which fixes some slight issues from previous versions, and at the same time brings a few new features that were not included on time before due to some implementation problems, but now they are full ready to go! :yup:

Here is the detailed changelog for the R7b update:

    - Added a couple of new weapons to your arsenal, which as usual they will be of great help in your doomish adventures:

      - AK47 Assault Rifle: yup, as some of you may know, this one is the well-known semiautomatic weapon of Soviet origin called also Kalashnikov, although it has been moderately modified by the UAC armament engineers, keeping all its deadly properties but with the added advantage of not requiring any manual reloading, thanks to its automatic ammo-feeding system similar to the minigun & chaingun ones. Keep in mind that depending on the fire type you use (primary or secondary) it will require more or less rifle ammunition to shoot, and usually needs quite a lot! :!:

      - RD-X Razor: a special monster weapon used by the new introduced enemy known as the RD-X (see its description below) that will allow you to use the same offensive abilities as it. Similar in appearance to the traditional Skeleton's Hell Missile Launcher, with this double-cannon device you'll be able to shoot fearsome seeking & sawing stars to your foes, either simultaneously or alternately. Best of all, it is fully compatible with your saws ammunition (yes, the same one used by your classic Saw Thrower!) and worst of all, it will be almost useless with stone-type enemies...

    - Introduced a small group of new hellspawns, which are eager to put their claws -or their teeth- in your fragile human skin and tear you with sovereign malice:

      + Ectoplasm: a close relative of the revengeful Phantasm, which as you know when depleting all its HP explodes violently damaging those around him. However, the blueish-coloured Ectoplasm moves a bit faster, stronger and results slightly more aggresive than its soulish cousin, and its explosion is even more harmful. So try to stay back of it at all costs! :nope:

      + RD-X: this one is a rather dangerous robo-mechanical replica of the evilish Revenant foe, built perhaps by those twisted UAC scientists (although it is still not confirmed, but it wouldn't be surprising) so apart from having an imposing appearance it also has a terrifying attack mode: it can shoot a type of rotating & cutting stars that are able to seek and change their trajectory on the fly, converting to mincemeat to whoever is within reach. The RD-X is especially problematic in open fields, so try to take refuge in any corner to prevent it from shredding you apart with its sawing projectiles. And if that were not enough, if this deadly walking machine falls in combat, a self-destruct mechanism will automatically activate and cause a strong detonation some seconds later, enough to run away from it on time. (But look at it on the bright side, hopefully you will manage to get its weapon and use its own attack mode to your advantage!)

      + Chilly Minicubus: a small chubby monster that is actually the pre-evolution of the wicked Chilly Mancubus, and as expected, its frozen mind has no other goal than to finish you off as coldly as possible. Fortunately, this icy boy still has a lot to eat to become as strong as its daddy, so it shouldn't take too much work to knock it off, especially if you use your good fire-based weapons against it, to which it will succumb extremely quickly... :grr:

    - Improved visually the secondary firemode of all those player weapons that make a burst of shots (like the MP40, Uzi, Auto-Shotgun and more) adding some extra A_SetPitch Decorate functions to their respective code, giving them a bit more realistic visual recoil movement than before.

    - Changed slightly the name of the Nightmare Reaper's Double Raygun weapon, which is now known as the Nightmare Reaper's Dual Raygun. (All its properties remain as before, no other changes have been applied).

    - Updated the HUD for compatibility with the new featured weapons.

    - Some other bugfixes and several code optimizations.

Updated download links are awaiting for you at the first post, as usual...

Keep enjoying and having fun, my dear Doom mates! 8-)

This new update sounds pretty cool, I'll try it out after typing this. I've always been a fan of this mod, but damn do I wish it had an auto update feature since you update so consistently, which don't get me wrong, is awesome and thank you for being that way. Normally I'd say that I wished you included screenshots for the new weapons/enemies, but to be honest I'm kind of looking forward to discovering it on my own from just playing the mod. I'm super curious to see what these RD-X's are all about, and it's cool to have some robotic type enemies in the mix, since the UAC is so damn advanced, it's weird there haven't ever been any in Doom before unless you count the upgrade station in the new games.

Hi there guys! I've published some instants ago the R7c update as a minor maintenance release. And hence, this one doesn't get any destacable changes in-game to highlight, just some internal code polishments and a few graphic improvements. It is not essential, but it is recommended to update your file copies with this one. Also, next future version will come with some more new features, although it will may be delayed a bit...

Meanwhile you wait patiently, I hope you keep enjoying with the most current releases of the mod. :wink:

Have lots of fun, Doomguys! 8-)

A minor maintenance release of the mod is up! A few addons in the ZIP archive have been updated, and also included a totally new one (check the Addons text file for more info).

Keep enjoying and having fun, guys! 8-)
