As of now all OpFor weapons are flagged +CHEATNOTWEAPON, type "Give Everything" to work around this.

That's weird I've been finding all the op4 weapons except the desert eagle so you just have to look :D

No, I mean even with the Give All command, they still don't appear. Nevermind, fixed. How would they normally be obtained in-game?
EDIT: Why are "Give all" and "Give everything" different commands?

There's a certain perversity in mods like this that I love them, and like Doom Tournament and Hunter's Moon this is another top quality mod of its sort. Thanks for porting the Opposing Force stuff over too. Also, I saw the special easter egg with a certain weapon (no not the one mentioned earlier in the thread). Clue: You can only get it on certain maps, and even then it's hard to. Unless you're using Colourful Hell where you actually have a very high chance of seeing it.

I think I've found an error. hl_dmbalance is supposed to decrease damage when disabled, correct? Well when I switched hl_dmbalance from automatic to disabled, damage got decreased, and switching from disabled to enabled increased the damage to where it was before.

Also, is there planning m2 attack for it?? So far displacer feels very underwhelming, since it's electric arc only ticles enemies, can't "teleport" some of the enemies, the AoE is too slow even compared to original Oposing Force (not sure if in original oposing force the splash was based on multiple 3D models) and you can't even teleport yourself to a room full of healthkits and some backpacks.

Well, in the original game you couldn't teleport gargantuas, gonarchs nor apaches so that's basically what i'm trying to achieve.
Ah, i completelly forgot to mention that you can place a teleport destination when pressing the Reload button, it costs 5 cells.
And agreed, with the AoE being too slow, i've speeded it up. The electric bolt is meant to be weak, with the purpose of triggering the enemies' pain state so they move less and make it easier for the projectile to hit them

Eh... There is no Gonarch nor even these tenticle monster and Apache is just a helicopter, not an biological substance; and there was only one Gargantua glued to the floor like an moving actor than actual NPC, it still die after like two shots though instead of teleport. However, it could teleport these hugeass NPC the size of Gargatua that shoot electric balls at you.

The point of the gun, which seems to me, instead of wasting enough uranium ammo to break their physical vitality, you using the uranium to get rid of big enemies entirely and instantly by just "teleport" them in to non-existance. It would make sense if it couldn't teleport things like Icon of Sin, because it's obviously just a material wall, but it could

Besides, it would make sense from the balance point of view since you have only 100 uranium cells and single shot wastes 20, 1\5 of your total. You kill cyber faster and waste less cells by using both tau cannon and gluon gun as well. Considering it's just a slow charging bfg replacement that shots a very slow moving ball and doesn't even have invisible rays of mass destruction in view, and yet even bfg9000 can kill both cyber and spidermastermind in one shot (although relatively close distance) I'd say leting the gun at least be used to instantly kill the big guys in one shot would actually bring some sense in to using this weapon to begin with.

Displacer cannon was really very underwhelming in the original game as well (and was entirely useless in multiplayer), despite it's unique and fun behavior, though.

How does one go about normally obtaining OpFor guns in a normal game, what items do they replace?

Chainsaw: Pipe Wrench, Knife, Barnacle, Shock Roach
Plasma Rifle: M249 SAW
Super Shotgun: Desert Eagle, M40A1 Sniper Rifle
Rocket Launcher: Spore Launcher (?)
Rockets: Penguins (?)
BFG9000: Displacer Cannon

Do note that they do not replace the Half-Life weapons by 100%, but instead have a certain chance of doing so.

(Not accurate) example would be the plasma rifle being a Tau Cannon 66⅔% and an M249 33⅓% of the ime.

It would appear as though this mod doesn't play nice with Shades of Doom, since this is what happened when I tried to load them together

Regarding the Displacer weapon:
There were no Displacer animations "when no teleport placed" and "placing teleport" in the original game, right?
Current anims are not good in my opinion. They just start over from the beginning in the middle of the process (DIS3 ABCD ...).

I suggest something like changing lines 487 & 500 (in zscript/lambda/weapons/slot6.txt) from:
Code: Select allExpand view
      DIS3 ABCD 4 A_WeaponReady(WRF_NOFIRE|WRF_NOBOB);

to:
Code: Select allExpand view
      DIS3 HGFEDCBA 1 A_WeaponReady(WRF_NOFIRE|WRF_NOBOB);

(so it will revert back to start instead of starting over)

Probably there are better frames to form this new anim, but idk, correct me if I'm wrong.
I think it looks better than default anim at least.


EDIT:
For the "reload" it's better to have default anim after teleport was placed:
Change line 500 from:
Code: Select allExpand view
      DIS3 ABCD 4 A_WeaponReady(WRF_NOFIRE|WRF_NOBOB);

to:
Code: Select allExpand view
      DIS3 LMNOPQ 4 A_WeaponReady(WRF_NOFIRE|WRF_NOBOB);



P.S. Why am I dying too frequently while teleporting myself with the Displacer?

I've been enjoying this mod while playing through Eviternity. What a fun ride that was! It was so satisfying putting a bullet between the Archangel's eyes with my Desert Eagle as my final blow to it.

So, will there be a future update where you can play as Adrian Sheperd and how rare are those Shock Rifle drops and what do they replace? Throughout my entire playthrough, I never picked up that weapon, and I went to all 32 Maps from that megawad.

There's an annoying issue where pressing fire/altfire with the shotgun when it hasn't got enough shells can interrupt its reloading animation. Definitely keep the ability to interrupt it when it can actually shoot though. Also I remember there being more animation to the gluon gun when you start/stop using it. Finally, does this mod take into account the missing items from Ultimate Doom? Notably the SSG.

I have to say, this is such an astoundingly accurate and satisfying conversion of Goldsrc behavior that this might actually be my favorite mod of all time. HL1 holds a very special place in my heart, and you captured everything with outstanding accuracy. My only wish is that the gibbing and blood could be implemented globally as a universal mutator instead of modifying the existing monsters.

i was thinking about it, maybe in the future. the shock rifle and other infinite ammo weapons replaces the chainsaw.

Mere_Duke wrote:Regarding the Displacer weapon[...]

i know, but that's how it behaved in the original game so i tried to mimic that in the mod

I actaully tried that before modifying the monsters but i wasn't satisfacted with the results so i ended up modifying the monsters instead
