Thanks man! This really makes me feel gud that I started this mod in the 1st place, lol. And to be honest, I don't use the mod often either. :D I have it loaded, but I'm not using it atm. Waiting till I'm bored with stock difficulties, heh.

Lud wrote:Yep! I mentioned it in the FAQ and in the main post like twice. This mod works with all mods and all maps. Due to the way I have designed it, it may not have fancy stuff like custom ammo regen or custom health pickup, but it works with Everything. You can jam 50 other mods in your load order and then this mod, and it won't have any conflicts! It's all about sacrificing some to give a lot more.

Many of the suggestions here seem to be too advanced for ACS, and implementing them otherwise will cost me compatibility. I didn't think I'd ever say this, but...WFDS, lol.


Thanks, and thanks for all the info!

How about adding weapon damage options past x3? :p


You could combine this mod with a custon skill setting zmapinfo.txt, like the one I posted above. Or just using some of those parameters, so you could lower the monster health a bit for example. I plan to use a txt like that so I can up the ammo and health pickups for example in conjunction with this mod.

Too late, Sergei, it's always been too late, I've already added even more ridiculous multipliers. :mrgreen:

What you suggested would work, though. I doubt anyone would ever use the newly added multipliers. Doesn't hurt to have them, though.

That's good. :mrgreen: By the way, on the changing the skill setting in console effecting the next map, I had heard that doesn't really work? Are you sure it takes effect? I had read you have to start a new game for that to work.

Heck if I know mate, haven't really tested it. I suppose it does, but you can always test to be sure. ;)

I have tested it before, and as far as I can tell it doesn't really work. Just for the record. Also for example since I've used custom mapinfo skill settings, I notice it seems if i load a save without including that mapinfo in the load order, it still uses that custom difficulty anyway. Maybe it just loads that info once when you start a new game or something like that.

Hmm, this calls for some extra testing then. Stay tuned, gonna reply in 5 minutes, lol.

It works mate. I tried changing skills then using nextmap or idclev. It works. Tested on MAP15 where it's cleary visible (shotgun guy on building in front of you).

Interesting. I think what's going on there is it doesn't work for changemap (the one that lets you keep your stuff), which I use. But it does work with nextmap.

And thanks again for putting this mod together.

My pleasure. Thanks all for the positive stuff. Someday, when DoomScript sees the light of day, I might make this mod even cooler. :)

Right on, one suggestion, though it's no biggie. If the onscreen effect for getting health regen could be the yellow you see when picking something up, instead of the red you see when getting hurt, that would be cool. Though not necessary or anything.

I was thinking of adding a toggleable health regeneration sound like a heartbeat, but I'm not sure if that won't kick the mod's size to above 64K. (I entered the competition with it.)

I'm not sure if I'll get around to it. I picked red cause it's immersive, BUT, I can add sliders to define your own custom colors, much like the player color sliders. Ain't sure if that'll work, though. I'll tinker around with it for sure, but I don't want to be giving false promises with this post.

I just wonder why you chose red instead of yellow? Since getting health is yellow, getting hurt is red.

Never though of that, to be honest. I'll still go with the sliders idea (if it works). I'm pretty sure someone will come with "Y U NO choose X instead of yellow?!". Sliders is the way to please everyone. :D

Quick note regarding the current version of the mod: Health regeneration will not work well for mods that change the max health of the player due to the current code. I am working on it and expecting to release v1.2 sometime tomorrow.

v1.2 will mainly introduce sliders for custom regeneration blend colors.
