If you want help you're going to have to provide lots of info. Like what is your hardware, what is your operating system, what version of GZDoom/LZDoom/whatever you're using, what mods you're loading, how you're loading it, what you've already tried for fixing the problem, and anything else that is even remotely relevant to the problem.

We can't magically figure out what it is if you're going to be vague, and if we feel like you're just wasting our time with guessing games we will act like that's what you're really doing and won't help you.

Decals in GZdoom

Post by OneReloadLeft »

Just a quick question...

1. Is the decal setting handled by GZdoom only

or

2. Can a mod / TC deny the display of decals even if they're enabled via the GZdoom options?


I'm currently on the newest GZdoom and I noticed that the shell casings dissapear on the ground. I noticed that with the btsx_e1.wad in conjunction with GZDA-RC1-B5a.

Shell casings on the ground are not part of the decal system, and are entirely controlled by the mod. As for wall markings and bullet holes, a mod can choose not to display decals for individual actors/puffs/weapons. Newly defined weapons do not come with a "default" decal, so it's entirely possible the mod in question forgot to define any.

Thank you for the clarification.
Ps. I still enjoy the hell out of your DIAZ mod.
