Do you have plans on adding visual enemy variants like in Smooth Doom?

In case you do that make it optional, I don't want this.

Everything is optional in this mod. Flies fly over corpses, muzzles, gun features, everything. You can even comment out parts of the mod in Decorate.

I mean if he ever considers adding something like that, it would obviosuly be optional, I didnt think it was necessary to say :p

I think there is a wrong frame in Lost Soul's death animation. Also Mancubus and Pinky (only ones I noticed so far) death sprites (not sure if all of them) seem to have wrong offset or something. Even with "adjust sprite clipping" set to "always" they sink into the ground. Only "smarter" works on them.

When you use explosive weapons against flying mosters game just freezes, and you must kill process. First i met this bug with russian overkill (i adopt this mod to RO), it occours wery often with powerfull explosive based weapons. I also reproduced this bug in vanilla doom with rocket launcher. I tried to reproduce bug with other monsters like barons or demons but it only happend with cacos or pains.


I had one instance when this bug occurred but it only happened in one specific cacodemon death animation (when he pukes gibs out) which happened, from what I can tell, because the gibs could spawn inside a wall. I think I managed to edit the code so that it doesn't happen and wasn't able to reproduce it with other monsters or death animations. Could you test it out (without any other mods) and try to list the monsters that can trigger it?

'Always' basically stands for 'always buggy' for sprite clipping :) The mod's readme actually recommends to only use 'smarter' sprite clipping. There's no reason not to, and otherwise some sprites will never look right. I can't really do much about it. Besides, the 'always' makes sprites look wrong in multiple other cases, completely unrelated to the mod itself, sometimes even in the vanilla doom.

umutulutas wrote:Do you have plans on adding visual enemy variants like in Smooth Doom?


No, I don't have any plans for this. Considering how many death animations, SFX and gibs are bound to enemies, the resulting number of sprites I'd have to add is definitely way beyond my ability in terms of the time available. Sorry.

That's not a bug, it was purposefully introduced back in 6.2.0 to give the player an opportunity to combo the primary and alternative attacks. This gives you an opportunity to use melee as a quick finisher against a monster you expected to kill in one shotgun shot but who didn't die (like a shotgun guy or a chaingun guy that may survive one shot); or vice versa, to use the shot as a finisher after pushing the monster away with the melee attack (effective against imps and provides a sort of minor crowd-control effect).

Ugh, this one is a pain. I can make tracers follow autoaim, however since the tracer is just SFX and is not actually bound to the hitscan attack itself, there's a good chance that when playing with autoaim you'll often see situations when your actual attack aims at one enemy while the tracer selects a different target and it just looks odd. In addition to that it's impossible to make tracers respect autoaim and also keep vertical spread, so tracers for shotgun/SSG would have to have horizontal spread only which also looks much worse than the current state. I think I'd rather leave them as is. I do recommend playing without autoaim at all though :)

A bug I noticed in the previous version is that burnt monsters were black after respawning, don't know if it's still a prolem with this version and I'm pretty sure this isn't supposed to happen
it looks ugly to me

One of the top five for me, amazing work right there.

My only issue is... super shotgun, especially its sound feels kinda weak. Considering regular shotgun has a more powerful sound, this is a bit odd.

I hope one day the zombiemen can go back to carrying pistols, but I suppose now that'd require Smooth Doom doing something with those sprites maybe.

suggestion:
make the tracers chase the monster the player is shooting at.
It doesn't work correctly when I'm playing with freelook off and vertical autoaim for a little more vanilla expirience.
I'm sure AAPTR_PLAYER_GETTARGET should make this work.

I found a fatal bug.
If dying pain elemental was pushed against ceiling, he will clip through ceiling and the game will crash.
I was using Beautiful Doom(I excluded weapons and items from it) with Final doomer mod, And that mod's upper cut attack push enemies above.
So I successfully found this bug.

One issue for you, personal opinion, Plasma rifle projectile is too opaque and the shape of it may need some rework.

I tried using BDoom630.2 with Knee Deep in Zdoom and it made the barrels flip out. The barrels would alternate between standing up, and being sideways. It was so disconcerting I just could not play the game. So I do not know what else may have been a problem there. Barrels seem still enough in Ultimate Doom though. I was using GZDoom g3.3pre-406-g61979f63c - 2018-02-11 16:35:34 +0200 - SDL version running on Debian Stretch Linux. Which may be the cause of it?

The old split apart version of Beautiful Doom works for me. Like before it was all in one pk3 file. For whatever that is worth. I even tried a couple older versions of the pk3 and they all did the same dancing barrels thing.

Just letting you guys know, I haven't abandoned the mod, I've been just moving around a lot over the past couple of months. I'll continue the good work as soon as I settle down a bit.

I honestly have no idea what could be causing this, but combining two mods that replace objects is never a good idea and is not supposed to work at all. You can manually go through the mod and ensure compatibility by replacing or removing the odd objects, but I personally can't with that. If you want a version of the mod that only contains monster or only weapons, etc., you can easily edit the DECORATE file to not include specific decorate sub-files (and also remove certain ACS from LOADACS if needed).

If the only problem is the explosive barrels, it's probably about sprite names. Just delete one of the versions of the barrels from either KDiZD or BD.

I'm aware of this. Part of the reason why things take long. It's caused by its gibbing but I'm not 100% sure why or what the best way to fix it is. I'll try to do something.

I haven't tested it beyond Necrodoom, but it seems certain weapons mods will work with this if you load them after Beautiful Doom. No edit needed.

Again, I only tested Necrodoom. So far no issues, but I can't testify to that until I test further.

EDIT:



Also tested with Trailblazer and High Noon Drifter. Both work. La Tailor Girl does not. Eriguns2 is another one that won't work like this.

When vanilla weapons are enabled, there's a little window of time after the chainsaw's primary fire where it's still possible to kick with altfire.
