Hmm if that's too difficult then probably not worthwhile. I think the conservative preset is good enough.

This is probably a stupid question but does this also work with mods that adds new monsters?

Hello. i wanted to report a glitch/problem that occurs with the modern versions of GZDoom that happen to Universal Entropy. Whenever I make a save and then exit the game, then return to the game that was saved the Universal Entropy effects for the ammo/monsters/props do not get saved and return to their vanilla state

Hey,
My guess is that something has changed about what gets saved and what doesn't in the recent releases. Sorry I can't offer more than that at this point as I do not have time to debug it and work on the mod at this point.
This might change in the future.

I wanted to explore the possibility of getting the colour information for actors included in the saves somehow, which should solve this problem even though it might result in save file size inflation for saves with many actors. Maybe one day... or someone else can always pick up the torch!

okay. thank you for the help anyways. i learned that this only effects the conservative (default) color blend variant. when i set it to liberal and faded cartoon. the glitch does not occur.

Edit: nevermind it must've been a certain level that saved the universal entropy enemies. the others won't let me now.

The sizes and other properties have always worked fine i.e. persisted between saves. I've just checked this on the latest version of GZDoom and it still works fine.

Colours never did. But we may get a fix on that in GZDoom engine itself soon, stay tuned.

edit: Yesss! The awesome Graf Zahl has implemented a fix for this. We should have custom colours properly saved as of version 4.12.0 or the next dev build.
