Setting the sv_10xu_mul to 100... 1900 monsters on the first level?!

No way anyone can do this on Holy Hell MAP05, which has around 23,000 monsters..

Because it doesn't work:

Hmm, it seems that the reason it's not working there is because A_RadiusGive is failing at that distance on this map.
Not sure how to fix it, I'll see what I can do though

I think you're out of luck here, I'm afraid.

Thanks to recent changes to ZDoom, this should now work without issues in any map! Enjoy the update

One problem I've found is that it doesn't take monsters with the ambush flag set into account. All monsters that are spawned do not have ambush, regardless if the original has the flag or not. It certainly is possible to check if a monster has the ambush flag, and then give the copies the ambush flag as well. Also, it gets really, really laggy on some maps. Perhaps check if only the monster count has increased instead of checking if it has changed at all? That might help.

Added. Also, quite a few important features in this update, the spawn queue being one of them. This makes maps like Holy Hell MAP05 semi-playable.
EDIT: Just did another quick update that now ensures the monster count has actually increased before re-10x-ing everything. Big performance boost there.

This mod will lead to some strange behavior when played with Strife, as it multiplies absolutely everything, including passive NPCs. This means you can get a quest 10 times, and get a reward 10 times. So, probably don't exploit that if you're going to use it with Strife.

ETA: I don't recommend using this with Strife. It will multiply the non-hostile guards in town until they occupy all the standing room on the map, which means you'll have to crowd surf across them to get anywhere. Unless you somehow manage to kill them all, but there will be 1,430 of them.

On the other hand, this mod has worked with pretty much everything I've tested it with so far and does not have the conflicts of previous versions. So it looks like I'll be spending some time with this one.

Just wondering, will there be a possible option where randomizer mods can have the effect of spawning different enemies of the same class? (Colored Hell, for instance, having monsters of the same class having their different tiers having a chance to spawn.)

Edit: To be more specific, I mean for one instance a demon of the common class spawns, and the next one spawned turns out to be either a green or blue, within the same spawn spot.

I finally found a mod that is incompatible, specifically the Doom RPG mod. It relies heavily on scripts that are constantly running, and the spawn queue can easily overwhelm that, resulting in all sorts of glitches such as the interface disappearing or features not working. The whole reason I was trying to use the two together was to increase the XP gained, which has worked with other RPG mods, but not this one.

Sorry for the bump, but I'm getting a fatal error crash on level load with this mod:
Code: Select allExpand view
*** Fatal Error ***
Address not mapped to object (signal 11)
Address: 0x60

Running GZDoom 3.1.0, no other mods. Just starting a new game on MAP01 or E1M1 does it.

8-)

You can probably make this mod even more anything-compatible with ZScript's Event Handlers... I'm imagining it would literally take like 5 - 10 lines of code at most. XD

So, I noticed that, while I love this mod, some maps are far more difficult with 10x the monsters, mainly levels that start with the player being seen/attacked, so I added a multiplier option:

Now with user-manipulable options!

This allows you to adjust how many enemies will actually spawn, for when you load up Memento Mori II and get instantly annihilated by 70 hitscanners. Alternatively, if you'd rather just add menudef.txt to it yourself, that's also an option.

EDIT: I've changed the slider to a text field, and added a text field for the spawn queue. In addition, boss multiplier and visible enemy count can also be toggled.
