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

Re: Flashlight++ (UPDATE V9)

Hi! I'm having a rendering issue with this add-on, the light beams are being rendered at 35fps while my game runs at 100+ fps. I've tried locking the fps to 60 and even turning on vertical sync but the light beams kept looking "weird" and out of sync with the game visuals, there are artifacts on the beam borders whenever I move.

The only solution I've found is locking the game to 35 fps, but it feels unplayable that way. When I lock the fps to 35 the flashlight beams move smoothly tho.

How can I fix this?

You can't fix it that's just how GZDoom works

I was testing out the click sounds of the flashlight and noticed the "Play 'Click' Sound" option doesn't work properly for me. If I turn it off, the flashlight still has a click sound when turning it on and off.

Oh yeah, i was going to remove that option and just make it use the same option as the sound itself, i probably forgot to do that halfway through, it's an easy fix though.

It's not a problem for me because I prefer having a click sound, just something I noticed and figured I'd report. This mod is an absolute necessity to me (so much so it's in my autoload folder) but I can't think of anything that could improve it. (aside from the frame-drop problems but as said that's a GZDoom issue, not this mod's issue)
