I finally started goofing off with the most recent version and have a bug to report: if "switch weapons on pickup" is set to No from Player Setup, the gun in map20 can't be selected unless you put in a command in the console to use it, since it does not have a weapon slot.

Kidding aside, will the final release come with a custom shortcut icon?
Of course!
Thank you! :D

On a side-note, I am not sure I understand the point (no pun intended) of the scoring system. Is it just there for bragging rights or are there actual rewards for reaching a certain amount of points?

The original game had a permanent scoreboard, so bragging rights like any other game of the era.

I'm still looking help for implementing such a thing, btw, as I have zero clue what to do.

This is not possible as long as ZDoom doesn't include some kind of global save that gets loaded upon System start.maybe it's the perfect moment for a feature request? I would recommend this also for BoA

It's possible with custom console variables, actually. See [wiki]CVARINFO[/wiki] and related articles.

I knew those existed, but the real trick would be if I could create a menu that was the highscore table, showing static results for cvars.

Its not done through the menu sadly. Its just a regular toggleable script in-game.

I did, but I'm going to have to decline. I just don't have the energy to work on multiple projects.
