Thanks for the report! I fixed it, but I will add it to the next smaller update, since it's a somewhat minor problem. I am currently working on a simple weapon experience system, and want to get it out with the next small update. If I can finish that off quickly, then I can hopefully add in another new feature related to weapons. It's a small, but neat feature that will add in a bit more customization!

As always, thanks for playing and providing feedback!

Hey, PALS! Just letting you know this isn't dead! I've actually been working on it slowly but surely. I have a lot of changes planned, and some new content, of course. Here are some videos showing a few things I've been doing:
Spoiler:


I aim to update weapons with little to no firing animations, and make them pleasing to use. There are also updates to the mechanics of some less interesting or awkward to use weapons. The most major change so far would be the Quick Strike, which makes it mainly a melee range weapon, with Alt-Fire unleashing ranged charge attacks.

Here is also an update for the weapon system: (Click to see a better, non-low quality view)


Weapons are now separated into families, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Capsules will now be color coded to reflect these changes, and will only drop weapons from that family.
RAPID - Green - Weak but fast firing. Easy to keep a bead on targets or deal with distant enemies.
POWER - Red - Strong but slow to recover from fire. Specializes in dealing with powerful targets.
AREA - Blue - Deals damage in an area, but usually lacks range. Good for crowd control.
TECH - Purple - Difficult to use, but effective when mastered.
SEEKER - Yellow - Seeks enemies, but cannot gain Bullet-Eye Energy on kills.
---
There is no limit to how many weapons in one family you can carry, but it is best to balance out your arsenal in many situations.

I also have a Tumblr where I very slowly/some times post updates: https://mor-ladim.tumblr.com/


As always, you can try out new changes with the development version, linked in the main post. Thanks for playing!

Just a quick nitpick on the Winged Reaver. I'd like it better if the splitting action was assigned to primary fire as with alt-fire, it causes me to accidentally use my sub-weapon a lot while using it.

EDIT: L3 description of Reaver is a copy of L1 description.

HELL TO THE FUCK YES! Keep at it!

P.S. Is the spider chainsaw lady going to be an actual enemy?

Fixed that bug, thanks! As for using primary fire instead, I can see about making it so you hold fire to split instead, but that may lead to accidental splitting. What I could do is add in a safeguard after using alt-fire, as I did with the Quick Strike, that should prevent you from using your sub-weapon for a very small window. I'll do some testing and see how it turns out. Also, thank you for testing!

Yes, and hopefully I can finish it sooner rather than later! They will either replace Arachnotrons, or Hell Knights.



Oh! For those using the development version, I ask that you please save each time before exiting a map. I am trying to debug potential crashing issues that seemed to happen when a new map was loaded. I believe I know what code is causing it, and hopefully it was fixed. However, if players are still getting crashes, then I will just remove it altogether. Thank you!

I was actually just thinking clicking primary fire again to split instead of hold and release. So double clicking primary fire real fast will split it right in front of you and you'd still be able to use alt-fire while the Reaver's still flying and hasn't been split yet.

Re: Bullet-Eye (SNES/Retro Style Mod) v0.9.7 - Candy Capsule

Postby Mor'Ladim » Wed May 02, 2018 10:07 pm

I didn't get to add in everything I wanted to for this update, but it does have the slight weapon system revamp, the third primary slot, and new enemies! Plus a lot of other neat features. Besides, the last update was on the 26th of December of last year, so I wanted to have something to show! I DID want to at least make the Energy Claws into a primary weapon, but I was unable to do so. Hopefully I can release the next update sooner which will address that.

Spoiler:


Hope you all enjoy! Please let me know if you run across any bugs!

Sweet. I assume it only works with DOOM/DOOM2.

YAY! New update!

Any plans on making the map pack that you said this was going to accompany or was that dropped?

At the moment yes, but hopefully I can add in support for Heretic and Hexen down the line. I was thinking of also just making a 'spin-off' of Bullet-Eye, and focus on magic based weaponry and items.

It's something I would like to do, but I'd have to find the time to do it. It would be fun to do, as I could try to make maps with retro looking textures. But yes, time is a valuable resource which I find myself having less of. I'll just have to tackle this little by little if I want it to see the light of day.

I don't think it'd take much effort to add Chex Quest support, though; it seems to be very similar to DOOM!

You should probably make it so that you only start with 1 spitfire since when you pick up weapons, you drop a spitfire and collecting 2 other weapons means levelling up your spitfire to 3.

EDIT: It seems that the scrap cannon is lacking an L1 description.
Also, if you hit an enemy with an L3 (and maybe L2?) Reaver and the thing's long gone already, alt-firing still activates (or tries to since nothing comes out) its split ability.
L2 description of cluster bomb is broken.

Yes, I was planning to revamp the Spitfire and make it a non-starting weapon, and have some other kind of weapon to start out with that cannot level. It should alleviate the issue that you can easily get a L3 weapon so quickly. I'll attempt to release a small update that will add this in, and hopefully the Energy Claws converted to a primary weapon.

Thanks for the feedback!
