Qent/Terminus are right; I've used this 'division is awesome' thing before (during Ye Olde Skulltag days) for a custom Plasma Rifle and it's a fucking wonderful workaround.

That's incorrect. On both counts.

Like Qent said, I mis-typed it as 100 instead of 100.0, but it does and will work.
It's not. Try this:

BLAH A 1 A_FireCustomMissile(etc, etc, etc, frandom(-10.0, 10.0), etc.)

Zandronum will quit.

frandom means "float random". If division works for projectiles like what's being said, then fine... though I find it not to be all that clean. Hate having to use workarounds, and sick of Zandronum being nearly 3 or 4 years out of date with ZDoom aside from cherry-picked features.

Anyhow, why argue the point? I'm not using projectiles for the bullet weapons, and that is final. It fucks over unlagged.

I know what frandom is. But you can't use it with projectiles, which is where the magical division with random workaround comes into play:

Code: Select all

PLSG A 4 A_FireCustomMissile ("PlasmaBall", (random(120,-120)/100.0), 1, 0, 0, 0, (random(120,-120)/100.0))
It's not rocket science.

Not saying it's rocket science, and I understand what you guys are saying...

(though I did miss it on the first post, sorry, I read things but my brain doesn't always register what is there.)

But doing something like that is just annoying to me... I'm obsessive compulsive as fuck and any sort of workaround and/or inconsistency is like a nail grinding in the side of my skull. It may work the same all fine and dandy, but knowing in the back of my head it's a hack/"isn't the way it should be" makes me want to claw my scalp off in bloody, meaty ribbons.

(In ZDoom, using frandom(-14.0, 14.0) gives a projectile the same spread as a hitscan attack with 14 as it's spread. It's simple, and consistent. Anything outside of the conventions I'm used to, throws me off later down the road. I know, I'm fucking weird.)

Btw, ZDoom does allow frandom on projectiles, but Zandronum no. Zandro doesn't even recognize frandom since it's based on a ZDoom revision before it was implemented. I'm hoping Zandro 1.1 testing can pick up so that it can get released soon and then focus changed to getting Zandro up-to-date.

Anyhow, I know I'm a neurotic, nervous wreck of a borderline schizophrenic piece of shit who should probably just shoot himself, but that's just how I am... for now at least... I'm not exactly in the best state of mind lately. It's been more than a bit rough... I've hardly been working on this in the last week or so as it is. (Physical illness, Paranoia, Mental Exhaustion, etc. I really need a doctor but I'm having no luck.)

A more up-to-date version of this mod is now on Github. I'll add some batch file that'll allow one to compile a copy if you use the Github Client later down the road.

For now, here's the link: https://github.com/StrikerMan780/Super-Doom-64

A batch file for building the PK3 is now available on the GitHub repository. It automatically applies a revision number to the filename and whatnot. The GitHub client is required to get it to work, however.

This project can be considered cancelled, along with all my other projects. It's obvious I'm not welcome in the community. I don't feel comfortable here, constantly fearing that even the smallest expression will set people off and incur their wrath. I also don't feel comfortable in a community where shitlords can run rampant while other tag-alongs are glued to their dick doing the same shit. No more SD64, no more GoldenEye TC, no Sabbat Martyr update, no SMMP, and no more random ACS/Decorate contributions to peoples' various projects, nothing. Not worth it.

Yeah, guys, really a good idea, picking on a mentally troubled modder that just so happened to be letting in a breath of fresh air to this incredibly large community that has enough of mods on its own and certainly doesnt need any more! With the amount of constructive criticism you are providing, I'm sure it will hasten the process of turning this work-in-progress into perfectly-playable-diamond to the point we will be able to play it tommorow morning.
I'm not saying he should get a golden ticket or something, but that maybe, just maybe, you should try being a wee bit more polite while pointing out someone else's mistakes. A wee bit.[/size]
