I didn't even know Flashlight+ existed - I'm still using the old Steve's flashlight mod after all this time.

This is certainly an awesome upgrade, thank you for making and sharing it!

If someone could tell me how to fix the sound not playing in E1M1, that would help a lot

Not sure how I haven't seen this until now, but I've been on the hunt for a good flashlight mod and this one appears to be even better then what I expected. Thank you very much, and from the looks of it, great work too. If you continue making presets, can you consider making one similar to the "Lamp" preset but have it flicker so it simulates torchlight and would fit well with Hexen/ Heretic maps?

I actually never... thought about something like that, not sure how possible it'd be though.
For Hexen/Heretic, the Blue and Green magic flashlights fit the best, since i themed them around those games.

I love this mod, but find one small thing to be missing - an option for flicker. Probably frequency, amount (whether it flickers to black, or whether it just fades) and length (are they quick flashes, or like, a long slow fade in and out).

This initially occurred to me when I saw the "lamp" preset, because I was thinking it'd be fun in a game in a fantasy setting, like an oil lamp. A slight flicker, instead of perfect consistency, would be amazing.

That being said, I realize you can't just like... keep throwing new features on the pile, it has to stop somewhere, and as a flashlight mod, this is pretty darn great already.

Thanks!

As for the flicker idea, i'm pretty sure flickering lights are hardcoded, i could make that a CVAR though, but having multiple copies of the same actor with different flicker properties would be kind of ugly, but i do have an idea...

Well that went to shit quickly

Flickering is hardcoded and there isn't much documentation on Spotlight actors
