We probably have a whilst to wait before 2.0, as it comes after the inevitable heat death of the universe. XD

Can i do a GZDoom 1.8.6/Zandronum compatible version?

Xaser wrote:This mod is a bit too Knee-Deep in ZScript at this point for any sort of conversion to be feasible. Sorry there. :(


Challenge accepted 8-)
EDIT: Just read through all of the files, and DANG this will be difficult, but nothing impossible :D

If Zandronum compatibility is the goal, wouldn't D4T be adequate?

Argent is VERY different from D4T, and is a lot more straightforward and in my opinion, more fun (depends on the mapset though).

Also, all Xaser mods deserve to be Zandronum compatible :lol:

Older versions of this mod used to use ACS+DECORATE (though with a lot of anonymous functions, which IIRC aren't a thing in Zandronum-land yet), so it may make more sense to start with one of those and work forward, rather than try and convert everything as it is right now. Might save some work, though emphasis on "might". It'll definitely be a challenge, heh. :P

I don't have any links offhand, but the Git repo has everything ever, so there's a start of sorts.

That's even easier then, because i have already converted mods with a TON of anonymous functions (Trailblazer and ModOhFun come to mind) I'm going to try that out.

Not a challenge tougher than Trailblazer though, if there's a mod deep in new GZDoom features then it's Trailblazer. (Exception are those mods with ZScript :) )

I'm not sure if this mod is being updated anymore, but I figured I'd post here anyway. In the past few versions of GZDoom, Argent VM aborts whenever you throw a grenade:

Welp, apologies for not responding, but thanks for the bugreport! Got it fixed, got a new version up, and I'm calling it v1.0.0 and uploading it to /idgames, just 'cause this has sat in a sort of "done, sans features that can conceivably be added in a v1.1.0 or something" state for like a year now. :P

Unceremonious, but hey, nothing's ever "done", is it? :P

Congrats on the release! This is my favourite Doom 4 mod, so it's great to see it's still being updated.

Thanks there! There's still a ton more I hope to do with it... eventually-maybe. Might require a time machine and a whole bunch of multiversal manipulation shenanigans to pull off though, knowing myself.

It is for the most part, but since the Spider Mastermind and Cyberdemon drop the chaingun and gauss cannon upon death respectively, you won't be able to get them without console commands.

If it is true?, does this work on Custom Boss Monsters to drop Chaingun and Gauss?

Yes it is. Cyberdemon Drops Gauss Cannon and SMM Drops Chaingun... Two of them. Not sure if it was intentional.

@YasuoProjectX: You can use Shades of Doom, though, since it has a patch for Argent.

Speaking of which I actually tried script a Trailblazer-type weapon randomiser spawner for Argent (so that Chainguns had a 10% chance to spawn whenever a HMG was normally spawned, Gauss instead of Rocket Launchers, and chance for Light Goggles to spawn weaponmods since some wads are VERY stingy with backpacks), but I failed a few times and gave up since my scripting knowledge is fairly rudimentary. If Xaser is still interested in ever coming back to Argent and adding features; something like this would be a good option (along with finishing the inventory!)!
