I was too lazy to fix them, making the patch was headache inducing enough lol

Well, I have some unfortunate news. You're using the old "broken" drops he had in place.

DropItem "BackPack", 256, 8 isn't 8 backpacks, it's just one. This is fixed in the latest 0.94.

Even with this I'm still swimming in gold and ammo after just 2 small maps. CH has never been light on supplies but I can't help but wish drops were toned down a lot. Seeing as how this patch writes its own drops I see no reason why you couldn't (if you wanted) tailor the drops to a more sane level. For me this would go a long way in terms of replayability.

Thanks for notifying, I probably missed some of the earlier monsters before I started using v0.94 as references for drops and other stuff.

Come to think of it, why even have them drop items? You could keep the theme of them dropping gold, just up it for the higher tiers. I think that would make the most sense.

Upper tiers actually drop higher amounts of dosh. Most of the boss-tier enemies even drop treasure chests.

But yeah, item drops sometimes get overwhelming, especially the ammo drops from boss minions. I can add a cvar which determines the chance of dropping items in the next update.

Heh, nice to see the compat patch still lives, shame I gotta give you more to patch in

Version 942 is up


Noticeable stuff in this version;

Most of the abyss monsters have gotten damage nerfs; around 10% damage nerf and larger damage randomization has been added
Due of the abyssals being already a real pain, I figured that their current damages are way too punishing to give player a chance to learn them properly, they still are a threat, dont get me wrong but now a slightly more fair threat

All optional tier are now filled
Granted, some of the fillers aren't the greatest but hey, its possible to now set solo tier runs with optional tiers using +nomonsters

Gray shotgunner + white zombie crash is fixed

All changes;

Are gray shotgun guys supposed to be... Crouched? Their model seems a little... Squished. Same with the Firblu pinky. Just wondering.

Gray shotgunners crouch when they see you at distance, I unfortunantly dont have proper sprite for them
and yes for the fireblu pinky, tho it is bit silly I know

Shotgunners crouching is neat. The pinky just surprised me but now it's kinda funny.

Yeah, I attempted to make it look funny on purpose so people underestimate him


Also a hotfix release

-Added an option for rocket damage type
This was a big oversight cause I failed to realize that cyberdemon rockets and player rockets are shared
Due of this playing CH with vanilla became much harder than intended

I like the EX bosses. I used to think the Black imp was kinda easy.... Until I met THREE EX Black imps in one room.... I'm a little scared to see anything else now.

Yeh, thats what the EX bosses are for



So I just want to promote something amazing that popped up in discord channel of Colourful Hell:

Custom difficulty add on made by itsmedoggo
Download
made a custom difficulty addon for colourful hell. it adds a submenu to the ch settings that allows adjusting the spawn weights of every monster, and only affects the game when the "custom" difficulty is chosen.

Basicly, this mod add on will allow for the solo colour runs many people have been requesting, since I myself haven't gotten that far yet to make that happen in CH itself.
I highly recommend giving it a spin! Doggo did a really great job on it

The mod keeps on getting better; great work. I just want to share my feelings about the updated Black Revenant; unbeatable. There is now a third party showing at the same time with the second and I had no choice left but to cheat. I was having a good time with them before but now it's ridiculous. I kept receiving a LOAD of blue flying demons while I was trying to avoid the other one and got beaten to death in a second. This is even more unfair than Benelus is. I will play my older versions since this is not playable for me. I'll see how it turns out in further releases.

Are you sure it was a EX version? He didn't seem much different when I fought him.
