DE-GRINDER! Remove tedium from your DOOMing experience

Have you ever been playing through a map, and thought that despite being fun, it was a bit of a grind?

Well, fret no longer - Introducing DE-GRINDER!

Image

DE-GRINDER is a simple little mod, compatible with vanilla Doom & all source ports. It cuts every single enemy's health directly in half, other than the Icon of Sin/Romero head, meaning WADs where you have to go through wave after wave of meaty baddies will take substantially less time. Cut down on the slog without cutting down on the fun!

This also provides a great set of training wheels for players who may struggle with difficulty in certain Doom maps. If you are new to the game, or maybe just new to slaughtermaps, this will help get you up to speed and allow you to enjoy WADs that would normally a bit too much to bite off.

I have included a secondary version, simply called DGRIND2, that also reduces the ammo pickups (other than rockets since that's impossible in vanilla) to help maintain consistency. This is only for the players who are concerned about levels becoming too easy with the weaker baddies.

Note: the .DEH file is ONLY needed for Vanilla or Chocolate Doom. Advanced source ports such as ZDoom-family ports only need the .WAD file.

Enjoy! 8-)

EDIT: For some reason, I'm not able to insert images.. Does anyone know why? When I attempt to, it says "You cannot use certain BBCodes: [img]". I notice there's an [imgur] function as well but I can't seem to get it to work..

That might make the game a bit easy, or too much easy. Quite a good stuff for re-balancing. And speaking of grinding the health pool, can i get my health grinded as well?

That's a good idea! Will make an update that includes a 3rd variant with halved health capacity.

I personally would like to 1/3 health on chaingunners, revenants, and archviles.
You know why :shucks:
