Zscript Brutal Doom, eh? That's an interesting one. I also kinda felt like Vanilla BD did a bit too much jank in it like it was trying to be Project Brutality, props where it's due to Sgt. Mk IV though for announcing he's gonna address that for its final version, so I'm looking forward to see how it's all been handled in this fork once I find time to look into it. I'm already in love with all the new weapon sprites, animations, and new stuff like glass slugs (something I've never heard of before). Oh, and as for that flying Mancubus? Fan-fucking-tastic. All you need to do is put it to the Jetpack Joyride soundtrack and you're all set. Hope this project goes well and good luck, man! :D

Its kind of a laggy thing on my PC, whereas BD21 runs very smooth. I have no idea why there is the lag that there is as there doesn't seem to be much difference in the effects and stuff. The other thing is the move speed of the non-tactical classes. You're basically walking when you run and there is no sprint key to toggle anywhere in the controls options.

Other than the neat upgraded enemies, its performing subpar on everything else basically in comparison to BD21 for the graphics and Player controls.

R A D
Overall, a real solid version of Brutal Doom, reminded me of when I first got into doom modding.
However as previously stated, the default movement speed of the non-tactical classes is a lil' head scratching. That, and imo the pump shotgun's reload speed feels slower than vanilla BDv21 and could maybe be sped up a bit.
Besides those two small gripes, this is pretty enjoyable, and feels very polished!

This is absolutely awesome in every way. I really hate how cluttered and unoptimized project brutality is, and the lack of polish with brutal doom with buggyness and such, but this is a rebirth of epic proportions. Thank you sooooo much!

I really appreciate all of the kind words and feedback, everyone!

I'm currently working on v1.1, which will address the most pressing bugs as well as adding new mugshots for the demon morphs by Craneo

enjoying it so far, took me a moment to find the always bob option lmao
i think my only gripe so far is the new pistol mags. the new ones kinda blend in and dont really match the SMG or Pistol, which im assuming is why the rifle ammo mags got changed, to better match the new rifle sprites.
personally, i think i woulda kept the slightly slanted ones, since they more so match Beretta magazines, but tweaked its coloring and shading a bit. probably would be nice to have variants for the SMG mags too, which i mean, the BD SMG mags just look weird in general tbh

It good to see Brutal Doom getting tidied up and ported to a modern codebase. It really needs it. I was surprised to see so much ACS still in the PK3 though. Is that something that needs to be there or will it be getting re-done in ZScript too?

Personally, I'm not much of a fan of BD and I only ever play it vary rarely* but this does seem to be very well done. I'll definitely be interested to see where you go with it next.

*I just find it too "noisy" - visually, gameplay-wise and literally - to the point that, for me, it just feels cluttered and thereby loses the simplicity of Doom's gameplay. I guess I must be a "less is more" kind of person as far as "straight" Doom gameplay mods are concerned. ;)

Brutal doom is a big and messy mod- So while I do port decorate and acs to zscript when needed (The base weapon class will be zscript soon!) I tend to leave things as-is if they aren't actively broken

I tend to use a hybrid system, making new base classes in zscript that the existing decorate actors can inherit from so I can get the features of zscript without the tons of work it'd take to port any individual file- that's how the base weapon class is handled as well
But for weapons in particular that isn't sustainable, so I need to consolidate the base weapon class and its' zscript base into one actor
If it was my choice that would have been done a long time ago, but I wanted to respect the former leader's lack of zscript confidence
That'll most likely come in 1.2- just working on fixing bugs and some minor additions for 1.1

I want to make sure that even as the base weapon class is ported to zscript and cleaned up, weapons can still be built in decorate- this is community driven after all, and I want to support modders that haven't made the jump to zscript yet

Just released v1.1, fixing a number of bugs and adding new graphics for the demon morphs' mugshots. OP has been updated to reflect this.

The addons that add more weapons work. However if you kick with those weapons, then you can't fire any weapons.
