Yo guys, i'm sorry for being inactive recently, i had some serious internet problems, and acessing this site through the phone makes me want to break it on a hundred parts, since everytime i want to reply somebody, the phone redirects me to the login screen. Even when i hit those damn boxes to keep me in.

So THAT'S why i couldn't show you the link to the last version of both lowtech and Aracnocide. They didn't finished uploading.

Someone64 wrote:Some feedback using the latest version with tweakfixes:
Spitting spiders spit at you non stop even from behind walls as long as they get their initial line of sight of you.
The reload key for the crossbow doesn't work when it's not loaded and you pick up ammo. Only pressing fire does it.
You can use the small jumping spiders to get to higher places without jumping by standing on them while the jump (weeee fun).

Something i wanted to fix a long time ago. Just need to fix some lines on the refire state on the spitting spider.

Bow fixed, thanks for reminding me!

Aaaand, the small spider unfortunately got cut out, since there's already one, bigger and cooler. Just for now.

The D3 Trite... damn, it's fucking cool, reminds me of that Kurt Rusell movie... was it, "The Thing"? It had a totally different name here on Brazil. Something like "The enigma from another world", something like that. I'll note it down, but it won't be on next update, i need to work other things.

I'm uploading the next version, be patient guys! ;)

Spoiler: Changelog 07/09

Let's see how this goes on before we proceed. :)

IT'S BEAUTIFUL. but the only flaw.
when the Explosive Arrow hits the wall, the explosion spawns at the wrong offset. (it spawns the explosion under.)
but nevertheless, it's an epic update.

Hello, I've encountered a bug relating to the pump shotguns, if you hold down primary fire while out of loaded ammo, the start of the reload sequence will loop over and over until you let go. This also happens with the altfire, except it can interrupt the reload sequence any time at least one shell still needs to be loaded.
There seems to be an A_WeaponReady without WRF_NOSECONDARY in the reload loop that doesn't check if you actually have ammo to fire.

Also is there a reason the Death Widows have the +BOSS flag? it makes them cry out at max volume throughout the level when they wake up/die.

Speaking of waking up, water splashes are waking up far away spiders for me, it's the default behaviour, but if you wanted to disable it I think you can put "noalert" in the TERRAIN lump.

Actually another thing, I was wondering why the weapons were aiming higher than where I was shooting at long range, it seems some of your weapons (Berreta, Dual Berretas, BrowningHP, Dual Uzis, not sure anything else) adjust the player's pitch for recoil before actually firing any bullets. Should probably fix that!

Hope you don't mind about fixing it.
Here, an actual updated list!

Changes: New Bazooka Explosion sounds! (straight from Twisted Metal Black)
Dual Uzis now fires a lil bit faster, with fixed coding. (also changed its name to Kendo-Ingallson Mark-88 rather than Ingram Micro-Ninjas... it felt silly.)
The grenade launcher, Chainsaw, and Baseball bat now has new names.
Grenade Launcher is now offset-animated.
Browning HP and Caterpillar's firing sound is somewhat bland, replaced it with mixing the old firing sounds and the new ones.
and Some powerup pickup message fixes.

My changes:

- Browning HP fire sound changed
- Upgraded Caterpillar fire sound changed

I think you should do the same thing for the chainsaw here as you did for Lowtech mod as it's not easy to consistently pull the crowbar out without pulling the chainsaw out first.

Aside from that I haven't found any problems with the mod aside from what I've already mentioned before. I also suggest though that you add delays to barrel explosions as it can break certain levels and force you to suicide. Also it can be a problem when the level uses chain reactions of barrels but the mod replaces a lot of them with ones that don't explode at all. Maybe would be a good idea to make an addon (or menu option) to make all the barrels explosive after you do the ammo rebalance and stuff.

Oh yes, that problem happened often. I have no literal clue at all why something's causing it. Hope you can fix it!

Well, all I know at the moment, is that the source can be found on stage 21. It doesn't need alerting monsters, so it is probably caused by infighting or some wandering around. Maybe it can be some state loop during spawn. But i can't upload it right now cus i got to sleep to go to work.
