edited VDPmonsterpack so enemies use DRLA damagetypes for projectiles and resistances, also made it so enemies can sometimes drop DRLA weapons and items https://www.mediafire.com/file/94xutjdq ... 2.pk3/file

been playing this recently.
would it be possible to add a similar pickup system to the armor and boots that you have with the backpacks?
picking up armor and boots then having to shuffle with the inventory to drop them gets a little bit unwieldy

I really like this mod, my only complaint is that it's hard to compare between weapons since there's no in-game weapon stats to gauge from, sometimes you just have no idea if a gun that dropped is worth dropping something else you're carrying to make space for it. Otherwise, nice job!

Is the check "GetLevelInfo(LEVELINFO_LEVELNUM) > 0" in DRLA_WeaponModpackTracker necessary? Said check isn't reliable (D2TWWRI extra levels, Wadsmoosh Plutonia/Evilution) and it'd be nice to at least have modpack status displayed for those. Unfortunately the same check is necessary for the scrolling weapon name since that will show up on TITLEMAP and such otherwise.

There are boring number stats for the basic weapons in the PDA, but it's best to shoot the toys at the baddies and figure out what classes can make best use of them. This is a fairly streamlined mod to play but it is not simple, or one that you're done with after a couple of playthroughs.

On the discord channel of this mod and other mods from the Zdoom Comunity there's a page that list the stats between weapons kinda precisely, if you need.

But as a general rule, higher tier/assemblies or modded weapons has better stats than base weapons, even on basic assemblies that doesn't appear to modify too much the weapon like stealth on shreeder weaponry. Depending of your class and what you have already, sometimes you want to take Superior or Higher tier weapons you fight, or leave them for your already adquired weapons.

Running DRLA with Compendium is giving me a wonky bug where I can't see the number of modpacks installed on my weapon nor the specific modpacks below the weapon icon on 95% of the maps. Odd. Wasn't sure to post this to Compendium or DRLA. At first, I thought it was just a global bug that affected it all the time, but then after hours of testing this around and trying to find out what the issue was in Slade, I noticed it only does this on most maps, not all of them. The only things I modified on Compendium was deleting font.wad (wasn't a fan of it) and removing the 3 KEYCONFIG lines where it kept trying to auto-bind the Daedulus controls.

Anyways, to reproduce, start as Technician, you're in HUBMAP. Add modpack to your basic assembled weapon from the start; boom, the numbers don't show up. Start a new game. Warp to a map that doesn't have this issue, like any of the Daedulus maps. Add the modpack to the gun, all of a sudden it works like it should. If you then warp BACK to a map that's got this issue, the HUD stays and won't update the change if you add a new one. So it seems like something is simply causing the DRLA HUD to not update when said modpack is added to gun. And whatever is causing it, only happens on certain maps. Not sure if Dynamo is active anymore, and surely if I see what the issue is I could just remove or fix whatever is conflicting here through slade, but I figured I post this to bring this to light to see if anyone can help figure out what's happening here.

Also, the guns behave as they should; they actually get upgraded, and the PDA reflects that if you plop it open and see what mods you have installed there; it just doesn't update on the HUD itself.

S.O.S. Help. If it's something obvious in Slade, I don't see it.

Read my previous post here. It's that problem. If you want to change it on your end it should be safe but you will have to edit scripts/DRLALIB_Ryan.acs to remove those level number checks (there's multiple, just change them to 1 or true) and then recompile DRLALIB.

"GetLevelInfo(LEVELINFO_LEVELNUM) > 0"
Aha! So that was the issue, after all. I started looking at the scripts, anything to do with the maps, and I noticed this before but didn't actually notice anything off. Sure enough, this is what's causing it. Thanks for being a godsend.

https://zdoom.org/wiki/MAPINFO/Map_definition#LevelNum
I'm actually assuming an engine bug in the case of D2TWWRI's secret maps, since they have the MAPxx numbering. That's not true of Wadsmoosh where say Plutonia is pl_MAPxx but it also wouldn't make sense if it's used for map changes to have multiple levels with the same number (Doom 2 uses MAPxx). Anyway for DRLA's usage I believe it's just a faulty heuristic to detect TITLEMAP and such where HUD should not be rendered, and I hope so and that it doesn't break maps to remove the check.
