This mod is awesome, every weapon has good feedback (though the shotgun could use a bit more kick, soundwise), the enemies are challenging, and the general gameplay is quite fun.

Perhaps a bit too challenging. Trying to play on normal, some more closed and crowded encounters tend to be near impossible to succeed at without some adrenaline. The last encounter on map02 of Community Chest 4 is one good example, I spent a good 30 minutes on THAT ENCOUNTER ALONE until I could escape (AND ALL I COULD DO WAS ESCAPE) and it cost me two, not one, but two adrenaline shots to do so. Perhaps tone down some enemy/projectile speeds or make a mutator for this. Everything being fast, while cool, is some cause for frustration in certain encounters.

Another suggestion would be to add more weapons. I really like the idea of only being able to carry one weapon per slot (as it adds a layer of strategy to gameplay), but it only gets used with the shotguns.

An ootion to turn down particle effects could also be nice, cause I noticed framrate can drop when lots of projectiles are flying around on screen (though it seems like only the arachnotrons' projectiles have this effect.)

It would also be nice if your weapon could be fired immediately after a melee? (There is a small delay, but given the nature of the mod, this delay is still too much)

Edit (for the thousandth time): That downtime with the melee has already been addressed, it just takes a bit of timing.

Found a bad bug. "Monster strats" is broken in the sense that it cannot be turned off or else simply getting seen by an enemy crashes the game. I am using the latest stable build of GZDoom. Turning it off then starting a new game ALSO crashed GZDoom.

It's just imps that seem to be doing that.
Edit: And it seems it's not even being seen, it's when the imp attacks that it crashes.

After further testing I did find that out myself. Quite annoying to be honest. Though i could do without it if (or rather when) a speed mutator gets added so I can slow enemies down.

Actually, nevermind, it happens when they're in the See state.

The imps lack a "SeeNoBrains" state, and in the 'SeeAvoid" state they jump to "See" if "Monster strats" is off.
Since it had to jump to "SeeDodgy" to get to "SeeAvoid" before, it'll jump back to "SeeDodgy" then to "SeeAvoid" again in an infinite loop.

Yeah well in that case I suppose GZDoom crashing is better than it causing your entire game to lag horribly.

Uhhh. No, that can't happen. It keeps jumping back and forth in a single tic, without allowing anything else to happen, which is why it crashes.
Meanwhile, if it DID happen in different tics it wouldn't crash and nothing would lag. The most that would happen is that the imps would get permanently stuck doing nothing at all.

Really fun mod, and very smooth too. However, might have found a bug.

I was playing through Lud's 20 Monster Community Pack and when I got to MAP13, I couldn't activate a red switch even after I picked it up the red key card. Neither versions 1.0 and 1.1 worked, however, when tested with other mods (Guncaster, ModOhFun!, and Russian Overkill to be precise) the switch worked. Lud mentioned that it might be a script error with the map, but I just thought I would bring this to your attention.

Still a fun little mod.
