I just posted an update to HitMarkers that provides the option to have certain hit sounds change based on the damage done to enemies. This currently only works with the default and Quake hit sounds. Essentially, it mimics the behavior from the past few Quake titles where the more damage you do, the deeper the hit sound gets. You can also modify the thresholds in which these sounds trigger, which can be useful when used with mods that have high damaging weapons.

Is it possible to make HP bars work with autoaim? I play without mouselook and HP bar doesn't appear if I and moster are in different height levels.

The latest version of CrosshairHP will now properly display enemies targeted by autoaim.

@Tekish

I created subactors of every Doom powerup so to add the +INVENTORY.ADDITIVETIME flag, but their timers aren't shown on LevelInfo. Would it be possible to add an option to also display timers from subactors or -classes?

Maybe with help of the Tag parameter?

Since timers are detected by the names of classes, every new subclass would need to be added to LevelInfo in the same way that mods are. Wouldn't a better solution be to replace the core power-ups with versions that include ADDITIVETIME? This way the names remain the same, you get the added behavior you're looking for, and everything that interacts with them will continue to do so.

If there's a way to do this without editing gzdoom.pk3, please let me know. AFAIK there's no way, at least not without ZScript, to have two or more actors with identical names.

I did this:

Code: Select all

Actor PowerIronFeetAdditive : PowerIronFeet
{
+INVENTORY.ADDITIVETIME
}

Actor RadsuitNew : Radsuit replaces Radsuit
{
Powerup.Type "IronFeetAdditive"
}
And after picking up the new radsuit its duration doesn't show. At first I tried only replacing the powerups themselves, not the givers, but it didn't work.

I don't have the context of the rest of your code, but in a vacuum this should work. It inherits the actor, makes the additive change, and then replaces the original with said change.

Code: Select all

Actor RadSuitAdditive : Radsuit Replaces Radsuit
{
	+INVENTORY.ADDITIVETIME
}

Thanks, glad you like it.

I've made a small update to HitMarkers that allows the option to limit rapid hit sounds. With it enabled, it will output hit sounds once every 4 tics (instead of every tic).

I originally dismissed this idea as unnecessary, but I've been playing more mods lately that spam a lot of damage in small increments, making the hit sounds go crazy. I wouldn't suggest using this all the time though, as it will definitely impact hit sound registration with weapons that have high fire rates.

This would be an entirely new add-on, and not something I'm interested in doing at the moment. I do recall seeing a damage direction mod on these forums, so something similar to this may already exist. I just don't remember the name of the project.
