I have two suggestions for the mod:

1: I think the drops should have a little more custom control close to that of colorful hell where you can have only a light amount of drops, just to help players fine-tune the challenge a little more.

2: I had a thought while playing Pandemonia in a seperate saved run, that the gradual "game level" mechanic could be put to interesting use with Champions, where a sub-menu within the main mod options could let the players have small tweaks happen over time as they kill enemies and complete levels that shift the weight of player-specified mutations and similar options, and possibly even turn on mutations from a disabled state after increasing this "levelling difficulty" sub-variable to certain levels through their violent adventure.

Lastly, this is an awesome mod and I got to say it's one of the coolest ones for it's mixture capacity with so many mods!

Greetings, love the mini mod so far, I approach to describe a rather unfortunate situation when using in tandem the creep generating option along with a few gore mods like nashs/spaghetti gore mods, making a white/dark green champions explode into gibs, spawns a pile of creep pools from each gib, although an interesting final act mechanic but it slows down the frame-rates considerably before cleaning up seconds later or possibly stalling the game, it's rather inconvenient, was wondering if you can do something about this?

Consistently getting a VM abort and have no idea what's causing it. Seems to happen when kill enemies in this save but it doesn't always happen.

I had something similar happen to me, it seems to be a problem between mk-crits and Gearbox, shutting off critical hits seemed to fix the problem when I did it.

I get the same problem as above in a different situation - when I enable effect choker in Pandemonia and close the menu or start a new game.
Looking at the code, that line is missing a null check, so if another spawn handler removes the object, the game crashes.

Edit: There's another address zero crash in champ_blue line 104 (missing null check for target).

Greetings Mik

First things first... from the time i discovered it ...i believe v2.2 ...it has been my go to mod..albeit in conjuction with monster mutator mod colourfull hell (mostly before the bundle overhaul introduction...bonus Kudos on that) for the GZDoom port [mik's chmapions v2.2 -present] . So TLDR; i can almost make a proud boast ..its a mandatory experience... so even more Kudos for the hard work of bringing variety to the doom game play experience.

With that said however i am finally also typing down a consistent side effect of your mod post v2.666 in conjunction with the Guncaster mod which is a visible nerf effect added to guncaster brimstone sword strat fire shockwave (reproducible) ,limiting the sword ancient flame's splash damage and range, Either removing your mod or downgrading to mik's champions v2.666 or even a lesser version resolves this behaviour.

I hope that the problem will be troubleshooted and the future releases of your mod will resolve the incompatibility.

Regards

Is Champions compatible with Colorful Hell ? I have been experimenting combinations of Champions with various mods , and while it seems to run in harmony with DRLA monsters and Shades of Doom , with Colorful Hell in which monsters are tiered by , well , color ; Champions overwrites the color of the monster , and you'd have to look at Target Spy bar to understand what it actually is (Blue Exploding(yellow) Cacodemon which is yellow as a final result)

You can disable color changes in mod options.
I think there's also a special compat setting with Colorful Hell that displays CH color icon above the monster in addition to its champion icon.

Hi again, I have a couple of more suggestions to make:

1: I think taking a page from the A.I director "type" mods could be brought in by giving players an option for the difficulty to change depending on the ammo/health and armor the player has at the end of each level, if several of them in example are set at maximum value, then the generation chance of champions would increase, subject to toggles of course so a player could have the change be very minor, or punish them for doing so well! Options I think would work well besides generation chance would be trigger tolerance for what the mod code is looking for, if it looks for max stuff, or just health,ammo or armor individually, or only half values, and if the increase happens for all champion types globally, or only specific ones.

2: A new type of experimental champion that is random and sporadic, having chaotic speed increases AND decreases, but it shows resistance to pain triggers. I call it the crack champion.
