I'm to assume it refers, jokingly, to a computer that is underpowered. Similar with "toaster," it is shorthand to say that the computer being used to run the game has roughly the computing power of a potato, which is to say, not nearly enough.

Not only that, but the computers could be so old that they fry easily... XD

Oh, you mean like that reference in that Portal game?

edit: That's probably the exact opposite of what you meant...

When the computer is underpowered like potato batteries, they referring it as potatoes. And yes, Portal 2 had the same point as well.

Going purely by context, it seems to have the potential to mean several different things, while failing to have one singular definition (or really any definition).

Is this a joke of some sort?

When I was a kid, a potato was something you ate. I mean, I once read 'A Clockwork Orange', and I was able to figure out the slang there, and I can sorta decipher African-American Vernacular English, so I'm not a total idiot...
A potato is slang for a cruddy PC, similar to how lemon is used to describe poor quality cars. This term actually comes from the fact that you could actually use a spud as a battery to power things such as lightbulbs!

I'm really enjoying this mod so far though I feel like those equipment items like the grenades and stuff vanish very quickly, GMOTA suffered from the same problem too. You might want to consider extending the lifespan of them, maybe make them float too, so they're easier to spot amongst piles of bodies. Plus it's pretty shitty to kill a dude from a long distance to see them drop an equipment item and have it vanish, you could always make the item have an infinite lifespan at initial drop, and have items dropped from players expire after a set period.

Other than that keep it up, the weapons are a lot of fun.

Actually, we did change this, for Michaelis expressed this same feeling. There's a patch coming pretty soon, which is gonna address this and many other things reported and found

I've had a blast with this mod.

A suggestion though, can you make player attacks go through other players during cooperative games? It gets irritating when you fire a rocket into an ally by accident and kill yourself.

First time commenting around here since I donwloaded the mod, I really love it, is what I wanted in a D4 Based Mod.
Looking forward for more updates.
Not sure if anyone has noticed the issue of the SSG, there arent any Bullet Decals after Shooting.

SSG decals leaves just fine in my GZDOOM g2.3.2, though. My only complain is BFG projectile doesn't have decal at all.

EDIT:

Thats because old versions of gzdoom had issues spawning puffs via rails (which is what was needed to make them pierce). Newer versions of gzdoom should display them correctly. We can't fix this in older gzdoom (i. e. Dtouch) unless we use a ton of hacks to do so.
Wait, it is actually involved with piercing upgrade? Welp, my bad but i didn't knew about that.

@popsoap10: coop player projectiles go through players now. Thanks for the suggestion.

@Captain J:good catch! Dunno how i missed that. It's been fixed now.

If all goes according to plan, a patch will be released probably this weekend, which addresses a plethora of bugs/issues/suggestions

This introduced a problem, you can't pick up Heavy Assault Rifles (or Chainguns) dropped by Hell Razors for ammo.

I've also noticed in Zandronum DM, the screen kinda bugs out when hit while wearing armor. Its like a frame of the weapon bar zoomed in.

btw LOVE the new HUD. The old one in old versions of this and d4d kinda bugged me a bit. :)
