Damn. That seems like an issue that's hard (for me) to solve. I'm guessing a complete rewrite to ZScript would help?

Yeah, and another possibility would be using custom CVARs instead of ACS globals.

The CVAR solution is something I know how to do. Thanks for that!

This mod is a lot more interesting to play with other weapon mods. Now I don't need Project Brutality when I want different kinds of hellspawn to fight.

Compatibility is a major part of the mod. Glad you like it. :)

You know, Duke3D enemies would probably fit rather well. I can already see Pig Cops in the Shotgun Zombie category, Suicide Drones in the Lost Souls, and that hovering overseer with the rocket launchers as a cacodemon addition.

I've had some of the Duke 3D enemies added to the mod before I released it, but to me they stick out like a soar thumb. Technically I could add arouind half of the enemies from the game, but visually I don't think they fit with the rest of the monsters.

They're a completely different art style (sprites created from 3D models, like Doom 64) and a higher resolution. Art direction is also completely different, so the designs themselves aren't like what Kevin Cloud or Adrian Carmack would have made.

can i ask for a little help here?

i can not seem to find a theme i like .... is it not possible for the future to be able to choose custom classes? so i can mix and match myself?

what makes no sense to me is the heads will roll enemies.

It is possible to add. But this is a randomizer mod, not a replacer mod. I will not be adding a de-randomizer option to my randomizer mod.
The "Heads Will Roll" theme chooses enemies that loose their heads when dying.
