Picking up the book give you the base vergion of the spell. if you want the boosted effect. you need to use a power-up called a "arcane amplifier" i belive, arch-viles usualy drop them naturaly.

Now asumeing if you have gc-addon. there is another way to get boosted spells. you know when you see it.

If playing Doom or Strife (I think), you'll need to use an Ancient Amplifier. If Heretic or Hexen, a Tome Of Power.

Both items function identically. You'll have to scroll through your inventory (or toggle the quick-use keybind) to consume the item.

That item will boost stuff to some extent, but even the Tome Of Power/Ancient Amplifier has an effect on those. For example, you still cannot stop time while deploying Threadcutter without the amplification effect from the Tome/Amplifier.

I'd like to thank you guys for clearing up on the enhanced spell guide!

Also, I've completed Guncaster on Doom, Doom II and Heretic

What would be the storyline finale for Cygnis' adventures through the Doom Engine-verses? Strife, after Hexen?

Hmmm... I Seem to be having trouble using Guncaster on the current build of GZDoom. Got a VM_Abort when going into the mod options menu. Integer division by zero apparently. I'm pretty sure I had the mod and the Addon loaded in the correct order, too.

Now that I look at it, Both RO and GC seem to trigger an Abort with their menus. I think it's related to how tooltips are handled. Although I am aware that the former mod is no longer being worked on for reasons that I greatly respect, but I wonder about the possibilities of allowing users to make slight alterations to your mods in order to patch these issues that may or may not be worth addressing.

I don't think the mod is discontinued, you'll just have to ask the author elsewhere, probably Discord. I know he's on Twitter as well but he doesn't have DMs enabled there. Anyway I'll at least confirm that particular glitch but also that it's sporadic, so try the menus a few times. I wouldn't rule out a bug in GZDoom, maybe see if you can pin down where it started?

As for Strife, Cyggie does not speak but the NPCs are supposed to. You're missing VOICES.WAD if they aren't so reinstall Strife for that.

If you are holding the fire button down with the matriarch and you pick up an extremesphere you get a VM abort.

Press "R" (By default) to enable/disable the shoulder missile racks while standing still when you have both Deadmaker mask and the power suit activated.
It's just as same as how you activate the power blasters from the power suit.

Don't know what's causing this bug exactly but I am experiencing when trying to void walk, how to fix?

VM execution aborted: tried to read from address zero.
Called from Guncaster.HandleStealth at Guncaster.pk3:zscript/guncaster.txt, line 2309
Called from Guncaster.Tick at Guncaster.pk3:zscript/guncaster.txt, line 1166


It seems to fix itself going to the next level, shouldn't be doing this regardless.
