I'm still having an issue with the bullet "sparks" are displayed with a black background. I'm using the Weapon Pack, not the full mod.
Also, the health bar is positioned i little more than half way up the left side of my screen. Is this intentional?

Wow, my oversight then. Thanks boys, I'll surely take a look at that.

The HUD thing with the health bar is the same issue I mentioned earlier with 2 examples... You might have to separate parts of the HUD from each other to sit at the edges of the screen like other mods do or something.

Hey GAA, let me try your latest update and admit it is going really in the right direction. But I have some suggestions:

1.As for Derek Wilson, can you replace the 2015-dn pdw with the M16 / M4A1 rifle or change its pickup sprite for now?, In my opinion it is ugly and does not match the raised weapon at all

2.As for his baseball bat, can you adjust the sprites to a 16: 9 screen size because I noticed that the sprites are a bit cropped?

3.This is a question for all classes, could you get character sprites in the next update so that they are not standard? It looks bad when Derek Wilson is Ranger and Blake Kliessen is FreeDoom Guy :?

Which is the correct load order? Enemies then weapons, or vice versa?

Any will do, i think.

But if you wish to avoid any possible sprite conflicts, i would load weapons last :)

Loaded enemies then weapons, but I only got regular DOOM monsters in DOOM 2. Notice: I only got the enemies when I loaded the enemies mod by itself!

i just noticed what is wrong; the weapon mod is defining custom difficulty levels, and they don't really allow the custom monsters (i think i done that because of the "unholy massacre" custom difficulty level for LZDoom).

Soon enough I'll upload a build fixing that.

So, will it be the monsters mod or the weapons mod getting the fix?

Well, i just uploaded re-uploaded a new version, without the custom skill levels. I also discovered two gross oversights and fixed them.

It might look weird in LZDoom, but there isn't too much i can do for that... so, anyway, enjoy it!
