What the what the?!?! I literally just came here to send you a message asking if I could adapt this mod for inclusion IN The D64ifier! :laff:
Which would you prefer? Inclusion? Or just being listed in the readme as a recommended mod to run alongside it?

Hahaha :)

I think it would be best as a recommended addon to be easier to update.
I don't know how game/mod relations work in moddb, if possible I could include a tag for it to show on the D64ifier mod page, if that's cool with you.

This is fantastic. Sometimes it's nice to play without music but Doom aural ambience is pretty lacking. This is a great solution. Thanks for sharing. :)

That makes sense. Perhaps if/when you get to a point where the updates have tapered off and you feel like the mod is pretty complete, then we can revisit the idea of me incorporating it?

I also am not very familiar with those things. I've used ModDB casually for years but only started using it as an uploader recently.

hey guys, there's a bug!
ever since the new gzdoom update this mod has broken certain aspects of maps. namely parts of the architecture that raise or lower upon triggering by moving over their respective triggers
e.g. in e1m4, in the room just before the exit with the yellow keycard side door, when you enter the room and move to the side past the center platform. said platform is supposed to lower, revealing multiple enemies and some rocket ammo boxes. but it doesn't. it just perpetually emits the sound as if it was lowering. this happens across the board on almost every map. it is inconsistent, sometimes it doesn't happen, but most of the time it does
I have tried and tested this to ensure it is 100000% this mod, and it is. I've ran multiple instances across multiple wads with just this mod enabled. this issue only occurs when this mod is being used

Latest GZDoom here with Doom Runner launcher, I use Universal Ambiance on some presets (with a different ini file for each preset) and I've never had this problem in e1m4 (I've just checked now) or other levels. Only one conflict with The Refinery Realm667 map, massive fps drop.

Are you considering making a version for Patch64 (viewtopic.php?t=76856) or does one of the other doom 64 patches work?
