He's a cool guy, but he has his own vision of Guncaster. And, well, let's say his code is not quite... robust... even if he is learning a lot by working on his own vision of Guncaster.


Thankfully his talent and his eagerness to learn don't go to waste, he is on the Project Brutality team.

Just for clarification from my side - I don't get in Dino's way of doing his thing, and he doesn't with mine. We're sharing issues and fixes among other things. He's the guy who for instance sparked adding climbing to the mod. While not being official part of the crew, we respect and are in contact with each other.

I was invited to join their discord channel, and I assist in correcting bugs sometimes when asked, or if I happen upon a script I feel might be helpful to pa1nki113r. Pa1n has been nothing but kind to me, and I hope my assistance made his life easier and a little happier.

That being said, I don't consider myself part of the dev team. I just catch bugs sometimes and try my hand at fixing them.

If the GC team wants my help, they'll ask for it. Sometimes I volunteer to help with organizing some stuff that's particularly headache inducing for the team just because I plan to do it in my own project, and I'm happy to share that work if it will help, such as with the gore code and the adapter.
If I submit something, the GC team usually knows how to make whatever I've worked on behave even better than I did. The climbing script they designed is beautiful, and way more impressive than my prototype, and I'm very excited to see how the adapter will work once the GC team gets done with their version.

I'm glad to be able to learn while having so much fun with all this. Someday I hope my code will be rock solid, but for now, I'm happy to learn and slowly make it better, step by step. The commentary and cleanliness of the code helps make working with all this a very enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

Yep, pretty much this. The GC team helps me wayyy more than I can help them back, but I definitely try to help when I can.

Honestly we all try to help one another when we catch bugs and report them. Those of us who are developers can't catch everything no matter how hard we try or how picky we might be, but with a solid friendly community surrounding us that cares enough to take the time to report issues, we can steadily all work together to make these projects as good as they can be.

There... now that I'm done being all sappy and shit... we should get back to discussion of the mod itself.

Everything else is handled: Showing up in the shop, in the quick select ring and in the cycle, and on the hud.


Personally, do not care about draugh and wyvern THAT much. From what I heard, both from DoomKrakken, adding new spells in the shop would means editing the ENTIRE shop. But from same rumor I heard from DoomKrakken is that with the new shop mechanic, adding new spell would automatically appear in the shop without much hassle or work.

I hope I got it correct by "That's the thing" ?

There are a couple of glitches I found related to dual wielding, via the menu option and not the Gunzerk effect:

When you hit the "quick toss TNT" key, two TNTs are clearly being thrown, but it only expends a single unit from your ammo. This doesn't happen when directly wielding the TNT (switching to weapon 5) and you throw both simultaneously.

When using the Matriarch Stratocaster, if you queue up shots in the right-hand gun and fire them, you will be unable to switch weapons or quick toss TNT until you fire at least one shot from the left-hand gun.

I am sure you may or may have not seen the bug, but after taking control of the monster(s) with voidtouch and with one of the upgrades it just kills them after a period of time, but... It does not count to the overall kill count and I cannot use 'kill monsters' ether since all it does is kill whatever remains on the map.

So, there was an art contest I signed into and I completely forgot until like 15 minutes before the deadline, and I just drew the first dragon that came to mind in like five minutes.

I think I truly managed to capture Cygnis visage in this picture.

I'm having a bit of an issue. After playing through SIGIL, I wanted to set it up so that the correct tracks played on the main menu and the intermission screens (I paid for the version with the soundtrack; I'd like to hear all of it). I added a ZMAPINFO lump to the soundtrack WAD which contains the following:
Code: Select allExpand view
gameinfo
{
      titlemusic = "D_INTRO"
      intermissionmusic = "D_INTER"
}

After loading the soundtrack WAD last, the intermission music is the song from the soundtrack, but the main menu is still Guncaster's main menu music. What do I need to do?

Look for titlemap in Guncaster's zmapinfo. Copying that and changing the music may do the trick.

Thanks, but on second thought, I'd like to edit Guncaster's ZMAPINFO file so that it stops overriding any backgrounds and music in general. How do I do that?

i was messing around a bit with various things and found a few bugs
you can attempt to infinitely climb ledges even if the ledge is behind bars (one sided linedef, void sector)

setting sv_gravity even up to 900 (from the default 800) causes tnt to endlessly bounce in place
and explode twice

set it to 3000 and it will periodically explode forever

Fixed dynamite. Not sure about the ledge thing, but that's Zhs2's turf to look into.

I think friendly monsters don't count towards your kill count. Hell, they should be removed from the total count, so it shouldn't even matter.

First thing's not a glitch per-se; Gunzerk gives you a free extra TNT toss. I just didn't bother with Gunslinger differing on that. But now that you say it... I guess I can change that.

The latter however - it seems that Matriarch bug is caused by something I commented out. It probably means I did it for another reason I don't remember now. Guess I'll put it back in and pay attention to whatever else breaks.
