Which maps are we talking about? Way back when I first released the mod, I split off the SS Wolfenstein and Keen variants to seperate files, in order to have greater map compatibility. But maps that change Imps or other monsters are not gonna be compatible.

Compatibility with scripted events is beyond my abilities. :(

EDIT: Also, thanks for the feedback! I forget to mention that too often.

The whole theme thing is a nice feature but it's not important enough to the actual gameplay for me to feel very strongly about it going. If it makes things significantly easier for you to just cut it out entirely then you have my support. I would definitely prefer to see you enjoy working on/adding things to the mod easily rather than get a headache just thinking about all the complications of adding things. A happy mod maker makes for happy mod players:)

Thanks for the feedback! It seems that is the way to go. :)

Wish I was good at scripting, otherwise I would love to have a DoomRL Arsenal compatibility patch.

Shades should be compatible with DoomRL Arsenal. Did you run into any issues?

I'd concur, as a player of Chaos Mode, more monsters is better than more themes. XD

I personally really like the themes. Although I'd like to see some more...creative enemy replacements. Like a vaguely Wolfenstein 3D theme, with various nazis replacing the default demons

Would it be possible to use a gore mod like Ketchup with this, or would it be incompatible due to every enemy variant needing its own unique death sprites?

I don't mind the themes vanishing if more enemy variety's gonna be involved.

By removing themes does the author mean removing the "one set of enemies per stage"?

I highly doubt that "one set of enemies per stage" thing's going away.

I don't know the inner workings of Ketchup. If it add's extra sprites to the existing enemies, it probably also messes around with their decorate. If that's the case then no, it won't work. Droplets should work, though.

The "one set of enemies per stage" is never going to be removed. :) It's the main purpose of the mod.

Hmmm. I could probably turn on an option to incorporate nazi-variants into zombie-variants and chaingunner-variants. I'm not that well versed in the Wolfenstein bestiary to know if any other replacements would work. Are there any wolfenstein enemies that fire other stuff that hitscans? And do they have the necesary rotation sprites?

That will take some time to research.

I don't want to speak by wildweasel and horrormovieguy, but Bratwurst and WW-Nazis have the most consistent sets. Kriegsland also have many variants of nazis, although not inclined to the almost cartoonish Wolf3D style.
