The ability to identify enemies in the dark and dark makes it easier to play. Thank you.

By the way, the WadSmoosh AutoName change in GZDoom 4.6.0 also affected Brightmaps Plus in the same way. Easy fix by just copying the filter folder as, except for the textures one. But I'm not sure that one is worth trying to support WadSmoosh with, because of the way WadSmoosh replaces the textures at runtime for the Final Doom maps. It would be a lot trickier.

Nah, I won't bother with that. Anyway, you would need to have the separate iwads to be able to use WadSmoosh, so you will be able to run this. I consider WS rather a gimmick and will treat it as such.

Okay yeah, I understand that. 8-)

I noticed the step4.png and step9.png brightmaps in are misassigned. There are internal patches named step04 and step09, but the actual textures they make up are called step1 and step5 respectively. Right now, what should be called step1 is being applied to some generic concrete trim, and what should be called step5 is being applied to nothing because texture step9 doesn't exist.

Good catch! I have fixed STEP1 and STEP5 according to your hints. Basically step4.png is now step1.png and step9.png became step5.png (but it's now 2x STEP9 stacked on top of each other).

They should work fine ingame now with latest Github build (official release with next GZD version).

does this mean that BP will ship within the next GZD binary release, or I am understanding it wrong?

That's a negative. I am syncing it with the next GZD release since it will come with new widescreen graphics for Hexen, which I cannot take into consideration before it's official.

Version 1.9 released

Mon Jul 26, 2021 12:37 am

Adjustments necessary for GZD v4.6.1 are finally official with its release now. Two texture fixes for Doom and four adjusted sprites for Hexen. Also, Warden's improved Mancubus firing sprites were too good to skip.

[bmplus_spritefix.pk3] [bmplus_vanilla.pk3]
[DOOM2] Improved brightmaps for firing Mancubus by Warden
[HERETIC/HEXEN] Added support for additional widescreen weapon sprites from GZDoom v4.6.1
[HEXEN] Corrected brightmap names for Falcon Shield, Amulet of Warding, Icon of the Defender, Blue Candle

[DOOM] Brightmaps fixes for textures STEP1 and STEP5

Looking at the definitions in slade, it doesn't look like these brightmaps support the full rotations of the player, zombie, shotgun guy and imp that are included in spritefix. The sprite fix also fixes the naming if rotations of the imp which are not supported either.

These were the only ones I looked at.

Disregard, the correct parts are at the bottom of the file. Sorry

I would have been surprised if they had been wrong since I had been very thorough with those. Mistakes can always still happen, ofc. Thanks for your concerns anyway and enjoy the mod.

I've attached it here. Whether you want to host this under the Brightmaps Plus project, or under Perk Enhanced, that's really up to you. :) I just provide the content.

there's something funny going on in gzdoom 4.7.0 when using both Nightfright's Enhanced Weapons and these brightmaps shared by Nash
when firing the rocket launcher, the muzzle flash sprites are not rendered correctly

here's a couple screenshot taken during the RL animation


this is with only PerkEnhanced and the PerkEnhancedBrightmaps pk3s loaded up in gzdoom 4.7.0 using the hardware opengl renderer

Wrong thread.

Re: Brightmaps Plus v1.9

Sun Oct 03, 2021 9:30 am

should I have posted it as a gzdoom bug? or in the weapon mod's thread?

sorry but I was under the impression that muzzle flashes are part of the brightmaps too

A better place to mention this would have probably been the enhanced weapons mod thread, I guess. (I am involved there as well, but actually also not that much any more by now.) Neither are the enhanced weapons mod nor Nash's brightmaps made for it directly connected to this project. I guess you had to post it somewhere and after Nash posted his stuff here, it seemed logical to assume here's the right place.

One way or the other, just pointing out it's Nash you gotta ask about this since he compiled the bms for the Enhanced Weapons mod.
