Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.

The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

WISLASH? That's not an IWAD-standard graphics lump -- I always thought BIGFONT took care of the slash (I can only guess that WISLASH predates it). Good find, though -- fixed now, at any rate.

Fixed, finally. Thanks for the tip -- I had marked this earlier as a "Works for me," but I play Normal and didn't think about the weapon difference between N & A.

2. Quitting message also have a typo.
3. Revenant rockets and Lost Souls do not have transluency.
4. Hell Noble blood does not match the color of the money they drop.
Fixed the first two, third is intentional (never liked the solid parts being translucent), and I don't know what you mean by the fourth. Be specific -- there are two Hell Nobles (do you mean the Knight or Baron? Both work for me), and mentioning exactly what the typo is specifically next time would help (instead of making me hunt them down). I assume you mean "preferrably" and the rather obvious "dakn" -- both fixed now.

Is the level indicator on the bottom-right of the HUD not working? Seems fine to me.

I think Doomhuntress might be referring to the DOSY string: "Ready to to bug out?"

2. Yes, just as Jimmy said, it was the extra "to" that I noticed.
4. Ah yes, that was kind of a rushed point. I meant the Hell Knight's money drop; the Hell Knight has a darker shade of green than the Jade money it drops.

About the Psychic indicator: it works when the player is not "automatic"; if he/she is, it doesn't. By the way, how do you change the "automatic" for the weapons? When I loaded up one wad, it was automatic; when I loaded another one, it wasn't.

It picks randomly when you start a game... the original intention was that it would be set in the "player options" menu, but there have been some problems with that...

The problem has been fixed in the latest SVN build [3078] -- Check that out and you'll be able to select it yourself as a player option.

And I'll take a closer look at the indicator. Strange how Auto mode is affecting Psychics -- it shouldn't do that at all.

I sincerely appreciate that there's a good bit of original-looking resources in this and it apparently contains maps.

That is all.

It doesn't. Sorry to disappoint; you don't need to download it now. =P

Not yet, anyway. Supposably we'll be getting some sort of episode for it eventually. :P

There will be a campaign to go along with it eventually, yeah. The screenshots on the first page were taken with Equinox, Requiem, and Lost Episode, though I suppose I could just market the latter as "Psychic approved!" and say they were meant work together. Which would totally not be a lie. :P

Yeah, you're totally right about Equinox, it works just plain... excellent with Psychic (well, except the last level then, but that level is very hard in general). Another one to mention would be TVR!, also works excellent with Psychic.
Edit: Also, Dark 7.

Just a couple gripes here, Xaser:

- The blue blood money pickups (that replace cells) could probably be called "Sapphire" or something as opposed to "Crystal". Picking up something called a "crystal gem" doesn't sound quite right.
- None of the weapons or psychic inventory items have Tags to display onscreen when they are enabled.

Otherwise, a thoroughly excellent new version. :D

One thing I wonder about, isn't Fire a bit... overpowered? I love that power, it's possibly my favourite of them all, but when it's upgraded to 2 and then 3, it seems like it's a bit too useful. I can easily overpower single Archies, Arachs, Mancs, Barons, and groups of Revvies and Hell Knights with it, just by firing a bit of Fire here and there.
Also, could you make Gravity a bit more useful? Maybe... make it draw blood money to you? By holding down the alt-fire key, you would draw the blood money towards you whilst your psychic meter constantly drains. And when just pressing the button, you would fire Gravity like you usually do, but not only would it move the enemies away, it would also affect the blood money, meaning that you could kill a enemy in a cage, switch to Gravity and shoot a burst into the cage, the money would bounce against the wall in the cage and then towards you. How's that sound?

Other than that, I can't find anything I noticed now. This is a real fun mod. I played Speed of Doom with it and ho boy, that has to be some of the most frenetic, speediest and most fun I've had with DooM for quite some time. :)
