Hmm... I'm sure this mod was at least fine, but i think GZDoom update did something funny to the mod.

This is intentional and shouldn't prevent the game from running.
Sorry if I'm doing anything wrong, but I just tried playing BTSX with BD pre-7 build 3915302 (June 12, 2020) and GZDoom 4.5pre70 (I also tried BD 20200116 and GZDoom 4.5pre79 as well as 4.4.2) and get the same error message as sdaa got in January, but GZDoom fails to start ("Execution could not continue."). Is there anything I can do to make it run? So far I'm just using the BD version I used before (6.3.2) which works.

Hi there - I've been using Beautiful Doom for a few months now, and I'm generally very happy with it. One note I have is that at least since the Pre-7 development release 12.06.2020, and using newer download versions from Github, the Safe Actor Replacement setting keeps resetting to DeHacked only, when I change it to DeHacked and Sprites. Not sure this is on your radar but thought I would mention it.

One question/request: Would you consider an option in the Beautiful Doom settings (non-default) to suppress the Beautiful Doom Menu? I.e. the main menu, and not the options menus. I'm using BD with a variety of pwads, and most of them have their own graphics and menu fonts that I would like to see when loading the maps up.

Anyway, thanks for the ongoing work on the mod; it's very much appreciated.

Congratulations on the mod, it's a perfect mix of vanilla and brutal! My favorite weapon sets is to play with "Enhanced Gun", it's really good! If I could make some suggestions for the "Enhanced Gun":
You could add some secondary attack to the chainsaw again, previously there was the kick that worked with the berserk, this attack was very useful!
Another thing I realized was that the secondary railgun attack of the plasma rifle is much simpler in the last version, in this current version of moddb (pre-7 dev build c0d410c) the graph is much more beautiful.
And finally, I tried the latest version of smoothdoom and the developers add a rifle to the game, and I have to say that it would be an excellent add to the "Enhanced Gun" arsenal, is extremely vanilla and without having to replace the chaingun as in "Modern Guns"!
Congratulations again for the mod!

As I said in the quote, this error can't prevent GZDoom from running, it's not a red error. If GZDoom doesn't run for you, this isn't the reason, it's something else. Also, BTSX runs without issues with Beautiful Doom for me (I'm using g4.5pre-137 right now), I just checked. Try a newer build of the mod, I guess.

It's not really possible; to my knowledge GZDoom can't load multiple main menus and choose from them. Try loading your pwads last (after Beautiful Doom in the load order), I believe their main menus will take precedence.

I'm already running Beautiful Doom first in my load order. No luck. Appreciate the response nonetheless.

I can say for sure that if a mod has its own MENUDEF definition, loading it after will actually override BDoom's main menu. But if there's no MENUDEF... Could you give me a specific example of a mod/mappack where the menu gets overridden?

It's pretty much everything. Some ones I have played recently are Back to Saturn X E2, Eviternity, Akeldama, Valiant.

Alternatively, could I remove the Main Menu reasonably easily from BD without breaking anything and maintaining the BD options? EDIT - I removed the first section (main menu) of the BD menudef file and the cursor definitions from the BD animdefs file and it appears I have the issue sorted; wad menus are displaying their own menus and I still have access to the BD settings. Haven't played around too much beyond taking a quick look, but I think this about covers it. If you're aware of any potential repercussions to BD from doing this, feel free to let me know. Otherwise, no need to spend additional time on this.

Thanks!

Hi!
It seems that Beautiful DooM doesn't work anymore with GZDoom. I'm using the build x64-g4.5pre-308-g63035d503.
This is what sows on the console:

E1M1 - Hangar

Unknown texture: "SP_DUDE7"
Unknown texture: "SP_DUDE7"
Unknown texture: "SP_DUDE8"
Unknown texture: "SP_DUDE8"

VM execution aborted: tried to write to address zero.
Called from BD_ExplosiveBarrel.Tick at BeautifulDoom200612.pk3:z_bdoom/o_misc.zc, line 79

This is the red errors on loading GZDoom:

You are running the last release - Try downloading the current state from Github: https://github.com/jekyllgrim/Beautiful-Doom
Hit the green "Code" button > download zip, and rename .zip to .pk3. Should work in current builds of GZDoom. The only wrinkle is if you are using existing savegames saved with the older build, they may not be able to load properly with the current build.

It worked fine on the first level, but then, when was loading map 02 this happen:

MAP02 - Underhalls

Attempt to spawn an instance of abstract actor class BD_BaseFlare
VM execution aborted: tried to write to address zero.
Called from BD_ExplosiveBarrel.Tick at Beautiful-Doom-master.pk3:z_bdoom/o_misc.zc, line 345

I'm using the latest GZDoom build, released today. There were no red errors though.

I'm running build 305 - I couldn't get 308 to launch and haven't tried any newer builds yet. I probably will though and I'll let you know if I see the same issues.

Edit - Tried the more recent builds and getting the same errors as you. So the last build that works for me with BD is 305. I recommend running with that for the time being.

You're right. It works fine on 305. I'll run with it. Thanks for the help!
