I discovered a bug, apparently, the newer versions of GZ broke the health regen.
(not the one you get from equipping the "Bishop", but the one you can set up in the "Here Be Dragons" menu)

Not a big deal, but I thought I would mention it.

A couple of bugs I've noticed:
-The Pulveriser's lead ball does not alert enemies when fired.

-In GZD 4.10, the Augur has a problem where it doesn't shoot where you are aiming. Depending on what angle you are facing relative to North, the shot will fired off to the right of your point of aim. It is most noticeable when aiming in a North-West direction.

Hello, I found a bug when using this mod with Gearbox. You can't switch to last weapon after you climb any wall. I check Brutal Doom with similar feature, and seem to work nice with Gearbox.

Guncaster provides previous weapon switching internally already, and for good reason: there are a number of weapons we don't want to switch back to after wallclimbing since they do undefined things (but we do want to switch back to real guns after playing those animations). Some examples being: the dynamite toss, the barrel toss, putting on an envirosuit or powersuit, the ledge grab animation... These are all weapons for the sake of showing specific psprites and shouldn't be replayed under other circumstances. Sorry if that breaks things elsewhere.

I don't see a health regen option, but maybe you refer to autoheal? It's automatic medbag usage once your health drops below a certain threshold.

Seems to look OK here. Maybe a screenshot or a video clip could shed light on this.

At 06:56 is the actual footage that encounters this issue a couple of times on the map. It seems like it seldom happens in specific areas/sections. I have met this issue while playing Fractured Worlds before.

Is there a quick and easy way to disable the mana pod/vial/potion/capsule drops? I tried commenting out the lines for them in the Mana.txt file, but that kicked errors about "unexpected {" and stuff, and GZ Doom wouldn't start because of it. At present I'm guessing I'd have to go through each txt file for each enemy and comment out the parts about them dropping those items...

Also, somehow the bug where the explosions and spirits from Corpse Blast can hurt you snuck back in. Not sure when it did, but after a little testing, it seems to happen more often when you have the Draugh Suit on, but it still happens without it. I haven't experimented enough to see if it can do so under all combinations of Draugh Suit, Power Suit, Mask, and Tome of Power, but I have encountered it with Power Suit + Mask, both with and without Draugh Suit.

Picked up Guncaster after a very long break. I gotta say, the rebalancing (yes, even the pruning) was done quite nicely. :D

(I do miss the increased TNT ammo capacity though.)

All of it is quite nice.
Spoiler: Anyway, I have some bugs to report...
Spoiler: And here are some gripes/suggestions...
I may have more to report later, in case I discover more or remember something I had currently forgotten. Thank you for continuing to expand upon and refine this mod, it's been an absolute blast from its inception to now. :D

I guess only single-handed weapons like Longhorn and Pulverizer could do most of guncasting combos is because these weapons have mediocre damage output (slow rate of fire/low damage). It could be easily made up with guncasting with less limitations.

The player could still perforn guncasting with Two-handed weapons, but with 2 options of spells left such as Dragonshout and Firespit.

By access of Masters of Pain (a.k.a. the gauntlet) and taking advantage of its new feature added from v3.888b, the player could freely perform guncasting with two-handed weapons.
Fast weapon-swap is the way to solve most of your guncasting issues and create various guncasting combos for fun.

The first four difficulties correspond to original Doom difficulties. Dragon difficulty gives monsters 20% more health and nopain in lieu of traditional Nightmare respawning, plus fastmonsters. Hydra is ultra-violence but with multiplayer things enabled, and has a confirm message:

Code: Select all

MustConfirm = "Wyrm difficulty level with spawning multiplayer stuff."

Basically, it's what many Doom players call "UV+".

Frankly, it's my favorite difficulty level. :D

The NoPain in Dragon difficulty is honestly a major pain in the ass... it also means Guncaster-compatible monsters cannot suffer from most of the status effects otherwise granted by most of the stuff you cast (no burning, no electrocution, no bleeding, etc.), at least while the monster is alive.

I wish that would change. There are ways to inflict status effects without relying on custom monster states (trust me, I've done 'em), so if making sure monsters can't get stunlocked on Dragon difficulty is a must-have, we can still have both. If anyone on the team is interested, I can show how it can be done.

Does anybody know how to use the tomed versions of spells? For example, I want to use the time-stopping ability of the Threadcutter but even after I picked up a tome in the wilderness, I haven't been able to figure out how to use it
