Not sure how much you're working on this right now, but I had an idea for a suggestion: when enemies get hit and take damage, they emit a sound akin to Quake 3 Arena when you hit an opponent, as an togglable option. I added this recently to my own mod, by adding the sound code into the "override int DamageMobj" part of the central monster actor [you can do your own method of course], but have the monster taking damage use A_PlaySound on an unused sound channel.

Just a suggestion though. o.o

If you want me to try to add it myself sometime for you, I could make an attempt at it, but it might not happen immediately due to my own workload at the moment. :P

Try Hitmarkers mod, this mod has hitsound and killsound option (and you can choose sounds from Quake)

Thanks to printinv, I found out that it's because for unknown reasons on some maps the player has more than one DamNumTracker in his inventory. That's why on each hit you get like 8 times the same number.

Valve Xaser pls fix :P

This is really useful for mod development as well, for getting an idea how much damage your weapons are doing in practice.

Minor suggestion: Put NOTIMEFREEZE on the numbers, so they'll still function properly under the powerup/cheat effect. (Otherwise they have a bad tendency to stack up and be unreadable.)

I think I finally know why. If you enter a map that contains one or more voodoo dolls, you get an additional DamNumTracker for each of them.

I had no idea that something like this could be so satisfying to use, I guess the only thing cooler would be if the numbers were to separate from each other as they disappear, more like flying blood but with damage numbers, or if something like the ssg were to show the number from each bullet hit, like a small cloud of numbers.

Great job, this is autoload material for sure!

There is. The mod adds "Damnums Options" to the menu, the setting is called shotgun spray.

You're welcome :D

Nice mod :D
I have a suggestion to add an IWAD font to this, FreeDoom. Not sure if you heard of it but it has been around for a while since 2001.

ok, so, I might be doing it wrong, but. not entirely universal, I tried to run it with hideous destructor as one of my hdest autoloads, and it did... nothing. I really wanted it to work, but I guess it didn't. I'll try to run it without hdest, I might just be doing it wrong. :?

Since this has been bumped, I'd like to bring up that there are some circumstances under which the damage numbers stop appearing on specific monsters. I think LegenDoom legendaries have already been brought up (any monster whose health is above their spawn health stops spawning numbers), but Corruption Cards helped to expose another one: a monster that has respawned can stop spawning numbers as well.

Not only that, but monsters which have been morphed, e.g. chickens and pigs, spawn numbers twice for each hit.
