Judging from the picture I seen on the first page, would it be possible for one to restore the monsters eye colour to their default for lets say imps and demons? it looks weird from what I saw, the green enemies make it look like those plastic toy army-men 3D models xD
also looks a bit strange the teeth on the imps and tongue are all that same shade. I'm more than likely gonna try this out on a stream at some point, could be hella fun :O

Is this mod being updated at all? the Crashing is a motivational killer.

champion_Bundle.champions_DropItems(int drops) has a loop that removes items from the DropItems array, but the "drops" argument is not modified to account for the shrinkage.

Adding this at the beginning of the for loop fixes the bug:

Code: Select all

if (i >= DropItems.Size()) break;
This works, thank you for restoring functionality.

Thoughts on a few of the variants, suggestions even, I don't know about other's but improving white and dark green champion creep generators since they can be mainly trivial by keeping distance, how about their attacks also apply a lesser slowing and minor Poison damage over time effect accordingly if hit by the monsters attack? could be based on damage, light blue champions could also repel/push you depending on damage. although that could be exasperating.
Also those healing items from bundle drops, can we get them to super heal above 200? like Brutal Dooms Health bonus pickups.
Speaking of Brutal Doom, I've noticed, if this is isolated to that mod or in general, that Explosive weapons sometimes bypass certain abilities like Indigo splitting or Orange exploding on death champions, also that Indigo spawns have the same health as their original counterpart in brutal doom but smaller and harder to hit despite stating splitting into 2 weaker versions.

So where do you insert that code? I dont really see any obvious right spot to put the loop break. Great mod btw. But please, patch this in if you're still working on it. I think the mod's pretty much done otherwise, maybe a couple more boss mutations would be nice?

Took me a while to line up and figure out. BUT. I'll upload this *lazy* fix version to those that don't and/or can't figure it out themselves, your welcome in advance. :wink:

Could you do something about optimization? larger clusterf**K maps tend to slow down dramatically to an unplayable mess with Brutal Doom, try Sunlust map 24 from the start (GZDoom) and 25 in combat, you'll see what I mean, if you can do anything about that then that would be great.

That sounds more like a Brutal Doom issue, not necessarily a Champions issue. Brutal Doom adds a lot of additional sprites with the gore effects. The thingcount in map 24 map already exceeds 2500 (if you're playing on UV then over 1800 of those things on that map are monsters).

GZDoom in particular doesn't play well with slaughtermaps/slaughterwads to start with even without throwing mods into the mix, based on my experiences. As soon as you start throwing mods in, that already shaky performance gets worse depending on what mods are used. Mods that just replace weapons, like Russian Overkill or Trailblazer, have less of an impact on slaughtermaps/slaughterwads than mods that replace both monsters and weapons.

Not sure what to say, thanks for responding, I surmised just by playing that when I turned the champions numbers off the performance increased so wasn't sure of the correlation, seems like everything else, most other maps are playable, it's just these slaughter maps that are concern, recommendations? suggestions?

@Mikk, been meaning to mention this for a while, but haven't gotten around to it, but I ran into an issue when pairing this up with Colorful Hell and LegenDoom. Specifically, when defeating a Boss/Champion/Legendary enemy, the code for the bundles causes an array overflow error. I'm not sure exactly why it happens, or even if its both mods or either/or causing it, but I solved the crash by adding a bounds check to both "champion_DropItems" and "champion_DropModitems", literally just:

Code: Select all

if (drops > max)
{
	drops = max;
}
... after the first line. Other then that, great mod!

Really stupidly sorry about the extremely dumb delay, but I'm pleased to announce after a bit (only teeny) of a hiatus I've resumed development on Champions!

So here is version 2.666, it features some new tweaks and changes, it's not much but it's a start as I intend to continue the mod's development.

mk-champions[2.666].pk3 (477kb)
Spoiler: changelog
Again, really sorry for the delay! Real life has been more than just a little bit in the way. Please let me of any suggestions and/or issues that crop up.

"You mean this guy just updates his mods whenever he wants?"

Nice to see you again, mikk! The silver champion change sounds pretty neat. On the topic off suggestions - could it be made so that mutations are determined at the start of the map when using dormant champions? It feels kinda cheap when you get killed by a titan enemy, load a save back up, and when you activate it again it isn't a titan anymore.
