I've had a few reports of the Spectre familiar doing that, oops. Will be fixed!

Updated to fix the Spectre familiar crash and other reported issues. Also Sarge gets a fancy new mug sprite thanks to Craneo!

I'd like to suggest the following additions to Checksums.zscript to ensure players still unlock familiars if they beat slightly different versions of IWADs.
Spoiler:
I still haven't done a thorough check to see if the Xbox/BFG IWADs have any further differences to either 1.9 or each other, but I did check TNT's maps and it seems the checksum for Map27 (603032BBF28C9347784536022B3C5CBE) isn't included. Also, does it matter if the checksums are in all-caps?

I will have to acquire these IWADs to confirm these checksums, I don't have them currently.

No need, I did it all myself.
Spoiler:
Again, sorry if capital letters make a difference and they have to be weeded out. I may also compare the BTSX episodes to their Unity addon counterparts and share any differences I find there.

EDIT: Turns out the only different map in the Unity versions of BTSX is E2M14, so I've added it to the above.

Ok added. Also changed my code to accept case differences in checksums.

I've noticed the arachnotron familiar tends to vanish near the beginning of most maps. It looks like after target re-acquisition it tries to jump to the ReMissile label, which doesn't exist, so it dies. Changing that to Missile seems to fix it.

Great mod, by the way.

It also looks like the nomad familiar's passive applies once for each nomad, plus one, so one nomad gives a 30% damage increase per fancy weapon, two nomads give 45%, three give 60%, etc. The increase is certainly welcome, but I'm guessing it's not intended to work that way.

EDIT: It looks like the nomad initially gives +15% per weapon, but after changing maps the first time it increments to +30%. Dunno why that is.

What is ROM3R-0.666? I thought it referred to the Technophobia difficulty's Icon of Sin replacement, but beating that didn't get me the achievement.

I also thought "encounter a dog" had something to do with playing a map that happened to feature the MBF helper dog, like this one, but it seems I was mistaken there too.

ROM3R-0.666 is from the Corruption Cards mod I made (seems If forgot to mention that in the achievement, oops). The dog is something you can encounter in DRLA via a certain weapon.

A few more things I've noticed:
-I can't find any way to unlock the chaingun guy and pain elemental familiars. The feed-me-a-weapon machine won't give them out, and I don't see anything that unlocks them.
-The hell knight familiar passive works on non-cooldown powerups, like the phase armor effect, and the mysterious magnum infinite ammo effect. I added c.Mid(c.Length()-8, 8) == "Cooldown" as a prerequisite because that seems to be the naming convention DRLA uses
-The passive also works on every tic instead of every tenth tic, so instead of reducing cooldowns by 33% it cuts them by 83%. This seems unintentional, because 1/6 armor ability cooldowns is pretty nuts.

Is there a way to banish familiars? Or, ideally, turn off their attacks and visibility, but keep their passive effect. I find the familiars really distracting, and usually try not to get one, but every now and then I accidentally use the wrong item or similar.

I would at least like some way to toggle or for them to be either time-limited or map-limited. They're occasionally detrimental (Mancubus in tight corridors, generally with LegenDoom Lite if they set off enemies at bad times). Also their green sparkles are a bit too close to those of the instagib Pain Elemental. Stacking too many gets pretty powerful too like those old wyvern idols in Guncaster.

Hey CutManMike, just wanted to say i'm loving the work with what you've done plus the Corruption Cards (legit they've added alot of more fun replaying WADs)
as for a possible idea, do you think it's possible to work a Random option into the mod when choosing a class?
so like one time you pick it you're the Renegade, but the next time you pick it you're playing the Sarge etc. etc.

a "Random" class would be cool too, one that changes every map. (would need some carryover for things like mod space and things, or maybe can make the cap lower without losing some, but unable to pickup new ones until you use below the limit)
