Flashlight++ (UPDATE V9)

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!

Please read the full rules for more details.

HOTFIX! I accidentally deleted a line in the code that made the game console crash, thank you ProdoyhaRupert for reporting this bug!

I always appreciate flashlight mods that work nowadays, and Flashlight Plus has always been a favorite, so I already loved this mod. But the way you handled showing the player how to move the position of the light in v6 is one of the ONLY times I've seen it done in a way its very easy and not confusing at all, so gotta give you extra credit for that! :D

v7.0
-I added a new position, Handheld from DarkDoomZ, it has the sway from DDZ, but don't worry since this doesn't apply to the other presets.
-Added a Russian translation
-New sounds were added (Prey '06, OP4, Selaco)
-Nash's tooltips were added, but not used yet.

there's probably more i don't remember, but oh well

v8.0
-Fixed the light spin bug in DarkDoomZ mode
-Added a new flashlight sound from LiTDOOM, it sounds like a springy click
-The light beam can now alert monsters, this is an option if you don't like it, though
-The credits are now more easily readable

ModDB link isn't available because they put the mod under authorization after i edited the description and added patch notes, download it using the first link

v8.5
-Fixed a read from address zero crash if the player actor was deleted
-Fixed a divide by zero crash if the outer angle is set to 0
-Fixed a warning about an invalid keyconf bind
-Fixed an error where the mod would automatically bind the f key to Bullet Time X's bullet time command, now it properly binds it to the toggle button
-Sound code remade from scratch by A_D_M_E_R_A_L

I've removed the ModDB links for now because they were turned into some sketchy redirects, please use the download button to download it directly from the ZDoom Forums.

It's back to normal now, the link will be added back in.

How do you actually install this mod? How do you use it? Can't seem to find a readme anywhere.

I am using GZDoom and I tried to load it with -file on the .pk3 file but nothing seems to happen.

That should be all you need to do; if it loads correctly, you will see a new "Flashlight Options" menu appear at the bottom of the Options menu.

new update

v9
-Relicensed code under the Lesser GPL v3
-Added the Brutal Doom flashlight sound
-Fully customizable sway decoupled from position settings
-Fix offsetting the forward position making the flashlight shift up and down when looking around
-Make monster alerting more performant by ignoring it for the second beam
-Cleaned up code
-Fixes backported from my work on Project Brutality
-Added settings for noise (flickering) and attenuation
-Grace period for having the flashlight on at the start of a level so you don't accidentally alert enemies
