I just want to reiterate that 1) this mod is awesome and I love playing it; 2) I really enjoy how much firepower the play gets in this mod, especially the large number of automatics you can have; 3) that running a continuous play mod utterly destroys the balance of E2M8 where you face the Cyberdemon, because the M202 FLASH can just completely bulldoze the Cyberdemon before it has a chance to react; and 4) I still think it'd be a fair idea to not allow the player to have the upgrade weapons before they've found the weapons they'd replace.

I mean, I understand that going through the entirety of the first two episodes of the original DooM and systematically cleaning them out is a decent amount of work, but still. Showing up to E2M8 with the M202 is kinda silly, considering you won't find the regular RPG-7 that it replaces until E3M3.

And I think I have an idea why War Rooster would cause the wrong effects to pop up with certain texture replacement packs: War Rooster has its own terrain lump that determines how various flats react to being landed on, and it probably overrides any texture pack loaded before it.

Thanks once again! I hope i can get v1.3 done by next week, but i have done so little (buffed the M14, fixed sprite conflict issues, fixed small bugs...) that i don't think it is ready yet.

On the two last things (the idea of not being able to find the secret weapons before having the originals and the terrain effects): I'll see if i can try the idea of spawning original weapons first, although i'm not sure on the code results; as for the last: almost all my mods have a terrain lump, if not all of them. So i would like to ask you to try it with any of my other mods on the same combination you tried before (Kriegsland II, Nightshift, The Arcane Wanderer, Nightmare Logic...) to see if the same issue pops up.

Thanks for the feedback!

Would Aracnocide work here? I know it's one of your older ones...

Probably yes, albeit i can't recall if Aracnocide uses the Enjay terrain definitions or any other.

Decided to do it with Ultra Crispy, since I just remembered I have it and it's more recent; it was doing the same thing with the circuitry flats bleeding as per War Rooster. Load order was:
  • GCV_UAC.pk3
  • autoautosave-v1.6.2.pk3
  • Xim-StarWarsProps.pk3
  • Xim-StarWarsTextures-v2.pk3
  • thyinterpic.wad(no idea why I left that in there, must have been rushing myself)
  • brightmaps.pk3
  • lights.pk3
  • FullBright.pk3
  • Doom Metal Pack Vol 4 modified v3.wad
  • warm-reception-v0.3.1.pk3
  • NC_Crushers.pk3
  • Rampancy_1.3.pk3
  • Ultra Crispy.pk3
  • UC-Trenchgun.pk3
  • BAC.pk3
  • precise-crosshair-v1.4.1.pk3
  • aim-assist_0.7.5.pk3
  • mXhairs_2.1.pk3

Well... i don't know what to do then LMAO

Terrain splashes are pretty much a thing since i started modding.

Maybe the best solution would be to find another terrain mod or delete the TERRAIN lump from inside the file.

At least I have Bitser... So basically, I just unzip the files with Bitser, delete the "TERRAIN" lump, repack as .ZIP, and run the mods? Sounds easy enough.

Is it possible to have the hallucinations pull from whatever monster mod you're using, rather than the default demons? Not sure how much coding work that'd be though, for example Project Malice monsters fully replacing everything so instead of a vanilla Reverent you'd see one of the mod variants.

Overall it's a great mod! I think my only comment is wanting more! More guns, maybe more gear like being able to set traps, etc.

Sorry... not on my reach. To do that, the mod would need to detect what is replacong the chaingunner and place whatever actors are firing in there.

It's okay, was mostly just curious since I wasn't sure if monster packs straight up completely override/replace the original assets, or if they still sit in there unused, hence getting pulled up for the hallucinations. Making them scarier/creepier might be good though, like having them appear for a split second, making distorted noises, etc.

I can't download the mod. I've tried to download it on Chrome and Edge but nothing works.

Due to some future events (such as me getting vacations from work and some trips), i'll upload this rather short, but good update on War Rooster. MediaFire is been very troublesome for some users lately, so this new link was uploaded on MEGA (the only place i already had an account before, lol)

This update is more optimization and aesthetical more thn anything, but it'll be worth! There's still some work to do, so that'll need to be pushed to v1.4, whenever it releases. Flamethrower now carbonizes any enemy, new smoke effects that look better, toned down some heavy particles, fixed an annoying zoom bug, buffed the M14 damage, and now you can fire projectile weapons close to a wall and not getting owned!

Have fun!
