not sure what could be causing that, what version of gzdoom are you using? does it happen if you run just the weapons and nothing else??

here's a link to the year old previous release of it, but note that its missing a bunch of stuff from the new version and lacks a lot of changes made since then

I've noticed something with the Monoeye monster: it can use its laser attack from any range even without being attacked, whereas Archviles need to be at a certain range when chasing the player.

That's all atm, otherwise amazing mod!

I've played the last release of the weapons, and I noticed a few things :


- This happens (sometimes) when you press "Fire" and "Reload" at the same time.
- The projectiles for the FlameShot bounce on walls, floors, and ceillings. Intentional ?

Ah, that's an oversight I didnt notice, thanks for pointing it out!

No clue why that happens, but might have fixed it, hopefully

This is intentional, yeah.

updated the first post to have a small hotfix to address those two things

EDIT: forgot to remove some unfinished stuff I was gonna dummy out from the monsters, updated the download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/v5ook9lipw2yv ... 1.zip?dl=0

A couple ideas:
1. Add the ability to hold multiple weapons per slot as an option.
2. Add the option to have the Metal Slug-style weapon management (as in: you can't carry multiple weapons, picking a new one ditches your current weapon)

Been playing this mod alot. Normally, I don't like mods that replace both enemies and weapons, but they go so well together that I can't imagine the mod without it's custom enemy pack. Still interested in seeing what the final two enemy types will be along with the additional weapon types.

Keep up the good work.

I did not expect to like this mod as much as I do. I'm a huge metal slug fan, even bought an AES and my arcade FPGA cabinet is almost always on demo for MVS games. This is awesome. I can't wait for what you do next.

Gotta say I love this mod so damn much, and I second the idea to carry only one weapon at a time besides the pistol (or two, for the last few MS titles)
I've honestly been thinking of doing sprites for the weapons, particularly based on the AR-10 used in Metal Slug (with modules to modify it, as in the concept art) or perhaps the weapons from MS3D (which I've managed to rip models from but not view yet, though I do have the textures)
The shotgun is really satisfying to use, I especially like how you replicated the smoke muzzleflash effect for it
Looking forwards to the next update!

Do you have plans to add all the weapons / powerups from the Metal Slug games?
Some ejected bullet casings for weapons alike the shotgun and machine gun won't look bad tho

I've released a new small ish update!
wow more than one update within the same year?

Some of the changes include new bullet tracers, the lasergun using flatsprites for its laser now, and finally the metal slug pickup announcer has been added.

Eventually I plan on adding a weapon limit like that, although for now I've just removed the previous one weapon per slot limit I had.
CherubCorps wrote:Still interested in seeing what the final two enemy types will be.
With this new release I think the only enemy that needs its own unique enemy type replacement is the Pain Elemental, although I do also want to have full sets based on the various enemy factions (rebel soldiers, mars people, miscellaneous enemies like the mummies and zombies, the ptolemaic) for each doom enemy spawn. The only problem would be making the enemy sprites.
NullWire wrote:Do you have plans to add all the weapons / powerups from the Metal Slug games?
Hopefully eventually, I do want to have more Metal Slug weapons present, although I'd like to avoid ammo bloat by having too many ammo types, which I already kinda do.

Excellent work, personally I wasn't a fan of the weapon limit, and the redone visual effects are stellar. This has renewed my love for this mod and now I need to take it for a spin for another dozen levelsets.

I've noticed a problem with the Firebomb, it doesn't play nicely with 3D floors and the fire spawns at the lowest floor, even if the projectile hits a different floor. Might be an engine bug that's harder to fix.

ah fug, that's due to the way the firebomb fire spawning is done, which doesn't take 3d floors into account because I never did actually test any mapsets that actually have 3d floors in them and never noticed it.

When i click on the Download Link at OP, i see two mod files with the exact same name, but one of them has a bit less filesize. Which one is well, most stable?

Also nice update. Tho i'd like to see Stone bounces further and hit more enemies. And i've noticed that i still alert enemies when i try to throw grenade while it's all out.

EDIT: Also in Icon of Sin, the game was crashed during he was spawning enemies. I guess this is about one of the enemy Tanks?
