The ideas are very good, the execution is terrible.
The Difficulty this add-on brings to the table is just artificial, everything is too aggressive and too fast to the point where the main strategy is to hide in a corner and just spam your pistol in heavy mode, the moment you decide to play this game like Doom or even D4T is the moment where you receive a swift death, it's a bit of a shame because I really do like what's added... I just hate how ALL of that is being Spammed at me as soon as I load a map.

My biggest gripe is all monsters notice you at loading a map, pairing that with how fast and aggressive they are on top of knowing a Lost Soul will always spawn is going from 0 to completely overwhelmed and you only have a pistol and chainsaw and it's only Map 1.

I'd suggest taking all the monsters down about 5 notches, to where they are noticeably more aggressive than D4T, but only slightly faster in most cases, the new attacks are more than enough to add more difficulty. The Lost Souls needs to be tweaked to a point where the spawn rate is someone what uncommon and delay it a bit to add the element of surprise. Tweaking Stealth and In-fighting accordingly to a point where the player can still utilize Glory Kills, and classic doom strategies, but have the approach shaken up to where you can be overwhelmed.

I like this mod, it's just severely unbalanced.

does not work with mods that have custom ammo(i tried final doomer and high noon drifter).maybe you should remove clipbox2 and etc or poltergeist does not work without it?
also there is no puffs for bullets for zombies and plasmagun fire is blinking while mid-air

Thought this mod was pretty good. Had some problems with playing with D4t. Some imps get stuck in corners and I keep getting a screen saying force abort at random times. It happened when I tried to use the keybind end demon mode.

Can you make it compatible for EOA? When you load hell walker before EOA it doesn't spawn EOA's items, if you load it after EOA, enemies like trites and unwilling don't spawn.

Hey Abyss would you permit me to make a patch that allows this mod and Insanity's Requiem's Monster Spawners to play nice?

This addon replaces all the enemies of doom and adds new stuff to the existing items, i guess! Very awesome and challenging mod.

Tho not sure why Zombieman's projectiles are flickering in Standalone version. Is this normal? Or should i really have to play the game with D4T?

Hello! I’ve recently found this mod and tried to play it.
But every time I load up the mod with D4T (or any other gameplay mods), this error message popped up.

Script error, "D4T_Hellwalker_Zandronum.pk3:modeldef" line 342:
MODELDEF: Unknown actor type 'NailWeak'

I loaded the mod correctly and even changed engines (zandronum/LZDoom/GZDoom), but the mod won’t run to no bail.
Could you provide any helpful tips that might solve this? Thanks!

Edit: I switched to v2.1 of D4T and now it runs fine! Problem solved :) You can disregard my concern

Edit --- I was originally replying to someone who posted they were getting errors but it seems that post above mine is gone? Losing my mind slowly...

OP above me posted they were getting some error message about missing cases.

My response:

D4T 2.1 works perfectly. Just tested it. Load this mod AFTER D4Tv2.1.pk3.

D4T2.1 Crucible and D4T 2.5 has errors when using the D4T version.

But if the user loads the STANDALONE HellwalkerAlpha.pk3 over D4T 2.1 or 2.5, it works!

Probably just to patch it the D4T_Hellwalker file to fix it.

I am playing this mod with the current PB github builds and it seems the LOST SOULS spawn with this huge red with yellow outer layer trail that never disappears.

Load order:

Hellwalker GZD version
ProjectBrutalityGithub - recent builds
PB Patch - need to comment out the missing monster decorates for it load in the decorate file.

If I do not use the PB patch, the barrel explosions emit the same Lost Soul Particles (looks the McDonald's arches) but never disappears. Eventually overwhelms the screen and cannot play as it hides all the sprites behind it.

Can someone advise how to patch this?

I looked at both mod's LostSoul decorates and it seems the RedFlare or RedFlame actors are named different.

Appreciate any help or updates.

Edit - I THINK I solved the issue by changing the load order against the direction of the first post:

Project Brutality
Hellwalker_Alpha GZDdoom version
PB_Patch fixed as per my advice above.

I tried the Zandro version just incase but it did not work in either load order.
