Hello, I would like to mention that the Pusher has been removed.

It wasn't all that good as a weapon, especially in comparison to the rest of the arsenal. Personally, I rarely if ever saw a reason to use it.

To be honest, I'm just cutting it off early so it doesn't have to suffer the fate of becoming even more worthless after the DLC weapon that would have shared its slot gets introduced.

The "can't switch to single Explodium via Weapon 2 button" bug is still there, but it's only there until I buy a second Explodium.

OK I think I figured this shit out. Do you have "Check ammo for weapon switch" disabled in gameplay options?

Edit: Well, you probably did, but I fixed it already.

Good news, everyone! The standalones are back. It's just the healthbars and damage numbers for now, since the minimap will take me a bit longer.

As noted in the first post, they use code from the sidemods (from the Demolitionist Common Library, specifically), so they'll have some differences from the main mod's implementation.

Now, in other news, as far as the mod itself goes, things are still taking a very long time. It's starting to become harder to keep both the master and development branches in sync with some of the fixes I'm doing as I work on 1.3, so that's definitely a sign that this is getting out of hand. I'll probably have to freeze further 1.2 stuff, but I am worried about leaving people with a buggy version until I finally get the major update done.

Ah damn, mod development is hard...

As soon as Delta Touch updates to 4.8.0, that should no longer be a problem.

There is no planned support for Delta Touch. This mod uses shaders that don't work on GLES, and disabling them breaks various effects and makes some objects harder to see. In addition, mobile devices lack the raw single-threaded performance required for much of the heavy scripting that's used, as well as graphical performance for the various visual effects (explosions are the worst offender, as they are very dense, causing lots of transparency overdraw which some GPUs have trouble with).

Introducing the "Alternate HUD Style"

More compact, with a full ammo readout, smoother animations and simplified graphics. This of course is entirely optional, but it's there for those who want it. The styling of it will give you a taste of what to expect in the future Side Mods, as it's based on the same code they use.

Edit: The broken transparency on the Hellblazer display has been noticed and already fixed.

Eh, that's fine, bitch slapping with quick melee was always more fun to me anyway

I'm really looking forward to seeing the DLC weapons in action once they're finished tho

tbh I rarely used the Pusher too. The only person I think used it a lot was Icarus from what I saw lol

It was more of a fun novelty weapon to me with being able to launch it through enemies, but it wasn't that useful to me.

Got a question related to the difficulty levels. A couple of updates ago you switched the difficulty levels around a bit, introducing some changes for the various difficulties. I made the assumption that "Demolition Day" (second difficulty from the top) used the Ultra-Violence levels op spawns. Only after playing through various maps did it dawn on me that this wasn't the case; it uses the "Hey not too rough" levels of spawns.

Seeing as the "Mostly Harmful" difficulty mentions Ultra-violence, I assume that this difficulty corresponds with Ultra-violence levels of spawns. As this difficulty level also adds some other changes (increased monster aggressiveness and health), I was wondering if there is a way to have the gameplay of "Demolition Day" (aka no modifiers), but have the spawns from Ultra-violence? I've already tried playing around with the skill command, but that seems to get overwritten when changing maps.

If the answer is "no" then that is also an acceptable answer :)

I can tell you that normal UV without modifiers would still be easy. That was added for a reason. :p

Also Demolition Day is the direct HMP equivalent. Just Blasting is the HNTR equivalent. The "baby" skill was removed because it would be absolutely trivial.

If you wanna cut weapons, do you have any plans to revamp Deep Impact? Because right now it's waste of a slot. I genuinely have no idea in what theoretical situation I could even use it. Did Explodium Gun at some point have a basic ammo limit? Because since now you can't run out of ammo, Deep Impact has literally no purpose whatsoever.

(Also I think it's funny that weapon that pushes enemies with gusts of air is named Deep Impact after a movie about drilling into an asteroid, but a drill is named Pusher).

I mostly use it for the altfire really and not much else. And using it to blow back projectiles is kinda pointless when parrying exists
