Good idea.

Concerning the bombs: My fault, I loaded the original DEH as well.

I've spent for nothing one night to find what was the real problem... :cry:
BTW I'm happy to know that bombs glitch is FOREVER fixed now :-)

For Hi-Res pics, I know I must fix them preventing tilings, all will be 1024x768 format (my monitor is really crappy, it's not P&P and 1024x768 is its max res supported, while having a GPU that goes at 2048x1536 :-()

Finally I've split the pk3 in two files: the main "Reborn" file + a file where all hi-res graphics & new songs are packed: so it's up to you to choose to use them or not. Also, with release v0.3, I've included burning sprites from Blood, where for now works only with BatmanFlamer & FlameMen projectiles (yeah, no smokebombs effects).

Thankx, I'll hope that next week I PM some updates to you concerning BDPatches... otherwise, you can try to extract them directly from Reborn, if you wish.

We shall see. It seems to me that you want Reborn to add some new substance, and that's fine. But I feel like, if I'm maintaining the "standard" Batman Doom patch (building upon Evil Space Tomato's work), I should keep things a bit more... traditional, you know? Avoid major gameplay/atmosphere changes. I even made the majority of EST's "Plus" improvements optional via menu toggles, so players can pick and choose. After all, if I were to include all of your changes/updates from Reborn, that would make the standard patch redundant, right?

I will consider borrowing your GLDEFS, however, once you consider them all finished. That can always be turned off if players don't like it.

Oh, and likewise, you are free to borrow back from anything I've done. I fixed up a few errors in EST's work here and there. It's all there to see, if you're interested.

You can do everything you want with BD patches. I think it's really ok if you want to make patches more faithfully to orginal BD, that was Evil Space Tomato aim and, as you can see, mine is slightly different. In the future, then, will be TOTALLY different... :-)

Something I've noticed but didn't test yet - maybe you could:
- Does the burning death only work for standard enemies and not the bosses? (if yes then good!)
- Does the burning death also take into account that some lesser enemies loose keys when dying? (this is important, it might break compatibility)
- No idea if I forgot to post it BUT the translation of the hud weapons is by far too dark, it only looks like a black silhouette now. These need to be brighter.

Burning deaths are almost done (using scaled parent actors, sprites remain the same), fixed terroristkey actor for compatibility with imminent v04. After all, I will surely adjust hud weapons, they looks very darken and I think it's best to modify them manually (or replacing them completely with something new, but must be coherent with player sprites).
Thankx for your really useful suggestions, I hope this TC will be done very fast because I need to take back work for GORE.

While playtesting BDR I've encountered 1 glitch that has broken compatibility: I've removed +NOALERT completely to all weapons because many maps uses old vanilla alert monsters when in certain sectors... BTW I continue to enjoy your precious suggestions and maybe, when all maps will be modified, I'll rethink to how to manage better these inheritances inside them. Fixed on imminent v04.

Version 0.4 released, it has plenty 'o fixes for first 3 maps and actors + new BatmanBerserk powerup in order to remove berserk glitches (original berserk raises "Fist" actor, while BDR has "BatmanFist": so this was the only problem)

Fixed colors of the black batman weapons. It's possible that you have to fix the offsets of the sprites again, but that shouldn't be too hard for you :)

WOW, how did you do it? Many thanx for having faith in this mini-project, now I must fix offsets and replace old ones! BTW, are them all PNG paletted or truecolor?

PS: I think you forgot to leave cyan/blue colors for Tazer lightnings, but there is no problem to fix them with GIMP et similae

PPS: All sprites added to release 0.4, many thankx anymore to Tormentor667!
