This seems to be a nice addition. I think there must be a way to improve it a bit. Since it slows down the ticker there must be a way to compensate for it by increasing actor movement speeds, according to the ticker slowdown amount, would have made the actors movements choppier. Would that make any sense?

If you still working on this I have an idea. Increase their Speed property when slowed. This helps with monster teleports being slow as the monsters are far away walking very slowly to the teleporter. These are common on slaughtermaps.

This is amazing! Thanks for sharing! I'm currently struggling to run Brutal Doom Platinum 3.1/4.0 + Eviternity map32 on both my Steam Deck and a 15% overclocked i7 6700k (it runs fine on an i9 13900k though).
I'm don't have them with me right now but I'll test it out and report back.

So, it definitely helps but it doesn't totally eliminate the issue. It jumps from ~26fps avg with drops to ~35 fps (100% speed if I'm not mistaken) with drops, mainly due to blood splatters. I think this would be playable in the 6700k.

The deck has roughly 80% the single core performance, plus the 6700k is 15% overclocked so I don't think it's gonna make it there though. I'll give it a try later.

Anyway this is awesome to have in the arsenal. Thanks for sharing!

Edit: more updates, on the Steam Deck it gets to 35 fps too (distance set to 1000, multiplier to 15x), but for some reason it gets a lot less fps drops. The reduced stuttering makes for a much more playable experience, I feel I can now beat the level and then continue my playthrough on hopefully some less demanding levels. This is awesome, thanks again!

This needs to not affect the player's stuff. Playing Russian Overkill and launching one of the BFG altfires into the distance slows the animation down with the monsters, causing it to take forever to actually do it's thing.

You're right. Done.

And since it's been 2 years since last release, here's a new release for you too.

I'll work on it more later, I have too much in the way of projects and meetings going on at the moment, but I'll push another update soon. It probably won't be compatible with all Dehacked stuff though.
