[4.1] Corruption Cards - Choose cards that alter your game!

Projects that alter game functions but do not include new maps belong here.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

The condition for this card is a bit specific. You pretty much have to leave monsters alive in the previous level to have a chance of it appearing. I'll probably change how it works in the future.
  • Fixed Wild Cards only appearing in game when using the STANDARD deck.
  • Fixed a potential crash with several corpse interaction cards.
  • Fixed more issues with Heretic monsters getting stuck with certain card effects.
  • Fixed Wild Cards adding 2 extra card options instead of 1 when playing in chaos mode.
  • Fixed certain buff related cards not being able to be offered under certain conditions.
  • Fixed The Duplicard triggering its effect one too many times.
  • Extra Monsters spawn range from players increased.
  • Assassains and Specialists can no longer be morphed or squashed by Heretic's powered up Mace.

I've been working on other mods but I wanted to get the wild card spawning and crashes fixed. I have other changes and fixes on my list, but they'll be coming at later time.

should throw up a "other mods I'm working on" section in OP? I'm always down to try other things

Finally got to encounter the unique card at E3M8, and got to say I'm glad it was included as it did increase the challenge to a satisfying point compared to the usual Spider Mastermind fight. Won't spoil the card or its effect, though.

Pardon me, I should've said that I left some monsters alive specifically to get this card, but I never got it anyway. Also, I am playing with monster randomizers, maybe that's the case...

Indeed but it's still a chance, along with every other card in the card pool, which is why it never seems to appear. It needs to be changed at some point.

could probably just add a note on the pick screen that mentions the current wildcard requirement (if that's possible with current setup)
maybe a toggle for "wildcards always enabled" or something that just throws them into an extra slot on the pick screen

would it be possible to have gravity cards only work when there is a non-SKY texture ceiling??

In multiplayer, the button to show the current card selection doesn't work if you're not the host.

you need to enable cheats ("+sv_cheats 1" in additional command lines if using a launcher program) for the card screen to work in multiplayer

We always play with sv_cheats enabled so that's not it.

EDIT: Looked at the code myself. Seems that the RenderDeck ACS function uses the script-scoped "player" variable instead of the function argument that denotes which player to render the card selection for.

I made a custom deck purely for making more and more enemies, it escalates very quickly but I thought i'd share it for people who like that sort of thing as much as me...
it's good fun for just mowing through enemies with a friend (requires using GZDoom multiplayer, but still works)
place it after corruption cards in your load order.

it seems that Treachery and Blood Rain are causing huge amounts of lag in high population maps.

I just went through almost an entire megawad with Lilith's Grace. Can someone explain its full effects?

Also, what is current way of getting wild cards?

This neuters the card's effect quite a bit in a lot of maps, even if it does look a bit silly. I'd have to make it so reverse gravity monsters can't walk onto the sky if they have this, which may be tricky. I'll think about it.

How many monsters roughly?

I could see that being an issue. maybe an option to have the effect toggle off on sky rather than completely blocking it? (though i guess this would cause some enemies to bounce between sky and floor)

oh, excessive amounts of enemies. 500-1000+ easily.
but just a note, incase there are any optimisations possible. (not sure if it's the visual effect or behind the scenes)

also, if I add wildcard cards to a custom deck, do they get added as normal cards or still require the special interaction?
