I had a blast playing around with this last night! About the only thing that's missing is multiplayer, but that's probably not possible to implement.

There's one thing that bothers me, though, and that's the flamethrower. It's the most useless weapon in the entire arsenal IMO, mostly because I often end up walking into my own flames and killing myself. Any chance you could tweak it? Increasing its range might help, as well as giving the player a small immunity to his own flames.

Edit:
I can also confirm that the RNG seed breaks after beating the boss, but I assume this is because it's loading an autosave rather than reloading the entire map.

It is. If you want a clean re-roll every time, disable autosave.

Regarding random number generators - you might want to give this a try.

I played with this quite a bit, and so far, I defeated Boss, El Cyberdemon, Dog Pope, and Imp Tank. Upon using the drill, I was surprised at how easily I could just stunlock bosses like Dog Pope.

Anyways, the only enemies I found annoying in the mod were the robots and the hitscan zombie enemies. (especially the shotgunners) The brony enemies I found somewhat funny, given that I didn't really care about the whole MLP craze to begin with.

OH MY *CAKE* THIS IS AWESOME

i just rolled a round with Flying/GODDAMN TANK/Floating eyes.

I just went all like, "MY TANK IS FLIGHT!!!!!!!1", and started plowing through the clouds of angry eyes while laughing like a maniac. Until my dad came in and told me I was being too loud. :V

While all the cool kids are posting updates, Reelism v1.1 is ready to roll! Here be the fixes...

Corpse Cleanup System: Basically, if there's no way for you to possibly see a dead body, it will be removed from the map. This should help avoid having hundreds of corpses lowering framerate on lower-end systems.

Optimised Laser Effect: Lasers don't have as many trails left behind them anymore.

Flamethrower Improvements: On one hand, the flames move much faster and as such have a better range. On the other, they do less damage individually. Thanks to Snarboo and Cream-of-Plenty for the suggestion!

Skulltag Tags: Should Skulltag ever actually be able to play this pile of crap, weapons will display nice names when you select them instead of crap like "NewFlamethrower".

Spawners and Crates are Randomer: Item and weapon spawners and crate contents were unneccesarily weighted towards specfic results. Fixed! Thanks to InsanityBringer for the help.

Code Janitoring: Some fixes and improvements and reworking here and there. Nothing visible to the player for the most part, but they'll make my life easier.

Fire Death Effect: Oh, the hacks, the hacks... the player now has the same fancy fire death effect as the enemies. Perhaps a little buggy right now, but I'll see what I can't do...
Cheers to Edward850 and Minigunner for the suggestion!

Dynamic Lighting: GLDEFS are in! Now things actually cast light like they're supposed to! Well, more or less, anyway.

In-Game Changelog: Because lots of people are too lazy to read this post.

A Very Minor Fix To Gutrot Island: Just a small visual quirk from a last minute change. Nothing big.

...And A Little Something Extra: You'll know it when it kills you.

Also, another thing I noticed: I've found that often after winning something manages to kill me triggering the end screen as the victory screen rolls on screen. Perhaps defeating the boss, you should make the player invulnerable to prevent this?

This usually means that the boss somehow died to something other than the player, and the script didn't apply the invulnerability script to him.

I'll have to rejig the script a little.

If the randomizer gives you the tank while you're inside the house in The Internet Machine, you're stuck in the ceiling until the next round.

[edit] Uh actually it refuses to let me out of the tank even in the next round - I'm stuck for all eternity. =P

Can I suggest that the zombies shoot fast projectiles instead of hitscans? They make the game like a zillion times harder every time they spawn.

...actually, no, the fact that unmodded zombiemen are the game-changing super-hard monster in this mod is too awesome to change.

Don't know how this happened but I was playing on Gutrot Island, got to the boss stage, was told I was going to face the dog-pope, heard it howl but... no boss. I wandered the whole map, eventually managing to find and kill everything (I was cheating by the time I finished doing this). The alt-HUD confirmed that all the enemies were dead. No boss to be found. :shrug:

How am I supposed to use the .pk7 file? Just double-clicking on Reelism doesn't allow me to open it with anything I currently have.

Drop it into ZDoom's EXE, or use a launcher (you may need to type *.* in to the file name box to show all the files).
