Not weird. But you cannot deny that writing complex C code and compiling it to the ACS VM which was designed to run simple map scripts is a bit outside the intended use.
And that bit of "outside intended use" can make all the difference if push comes to shove because it may trigger undefined behavior. The main problem is really the tacked-on memory management in the VM to work around ACS's shortcomings. Especially the string pool has been a source of far too many issues - if you now throw code at it that does even more string manipulation it may just be enough to push it over the edge.

It's very difficult to obtain, but you can get it by defeating Isaac's third form.

Hey, I'm guessing I'm one of a handful of people unlucky enough for this to happen to because I've looked and have found 0 answers or fixes. I've installed the latest builds of GZDOOM as well as the devbuilds, I've tried Zandronum, I've tried changing the rendering, nothing works! Basically, what the problem is, every time I try to play Lithium, everything works fine, that is up until I actually start playing. The game freezes for a second or so with the end of the barrel of the pistol at the very bottom of the screen, after the short freeze, the gun is completely gone. However, I can change weapons still, use them, pick up other weapons, etc. But, everything is invisible, the HUD is there, just not the weapon models. Also, when I go to zoom-in with the pistol it pulls my character's perspective back as if he was going through a worm hold and the visuals as all over the place. If anyone here knows a fix or could help me in someway, I would greatly appreciate it.

Delete your configuration (back it up first!) and try it again. This sometimes happens when GZDoom fails to set the defaults correctly.

Sad to see this mod is moving to a different engine as I've JUST found out about it's existence watching ICARUSLIV3S coverage of it on his Doom Mod Madness segment of his YouTube channel. I've been using GZDoom ever since ZDoom kicked the bucket and I forgot Skulltag was a thing. I'm not exactly tech savvy when it comes to Doom ports so I tend to just use the best one I see, and in this case GZDoom seems to be a fan favorite and chock full of features.

Quite an odd coincidence that DoomRPG was brought up, that mod has to be one of my favorite Doom mods of all time, and I was equally as sad to see it being shelved as-well.

Either way, fantastic mod. It still boggles my mind what people are still doing to Doom nowadays.
