Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

This is EXACTLY what I´ve been looking for since the flashlight from here: viewtopic.php?f=105&t=37763&hilit=flashlight

destroys Framerates on my complex maps.

It causes out of sync in multiplayer, though it's still the best flashlight mod!

Was this flashlight tested on wads with lots of 3D floors?

Bumping the thread for presenting you a slightly modified version of this mod/addon, which I have called Steve's Flashlight Plus.

It's practically the same archive, but I have updated a bit the menus and made some text and code optimizations in most of lumps for taking a little less space. Also, I have incorporated a 'click' sound for turning on/off the flashlight. :wink:

Besides, I have tweaked the default CVARINFO variables to a more generic value, optimized for a fast start (but still can be changed to your personal taste):

Code: Select all

Color = White
Intensity = 512
Inner Angle = 16.0
Outer Angle = 32.0
Location = Center View

Hope you like it! 8-)

Is it possible for you to make a version that's a .pk3 or .zip?

Unzip it with 7-zip or something and zip it back up and you have a .pk3.

.pk7 is just a renamed .7z archive

I am a noob in ZScript.

Is there a way to turn it into a pickup?


My idea was this: you press the flashlight keybind and before the flashlight gets activated it checks if you already got the fake inventory "flashlight" first. Or I do some ACS for that. But I have no clue how to write that "you got the flashlight"-check in Zscript....

So I could force the player to actually go and find a flashlight and/or be able to lose it.

Compatability Issues / Looking for support?

Keep in mind: I have experience with installing mods and resolving conflicts for numerous video games. I am only a few days new to the Classic Doom modding scene. I have been using ZDL to organize my mods and, for example, do not run Doom RPG from its own mod organizer/launcher. I am not experienced with fiddling with code files unless I have explicit instructions on what to edit only if those edits are 100% necessary for smooth running/compatibility.

There seems to be an issue with the flashlight when used with Doom RPG + Doom RLA. I can run both Doom RPG and DRLA separately and the flashlight works just fine, but when I use Doom RPG + DRLA w/ the required compatibility patch, the flashlight stops working entirely. When running that particular mod, I can not activate the flashlight at all, regardless of the settings I try. Is there a way for me to make this compatible?
