[UPDATED TO 2.8] Guncaster - Zan 3.0 Beta

First, yes I did get permission from PillowBlaster to post this.

Refer to the original thread for the main mod info, this thread is just for the new stuff.
There IS a bug or two I know of, but if anyone finds any I haven't found, please, let me know!

Current version - 555_2.8

New features;
Works online (In Zandronum 3.0 ONLY!)

Bugs;
Probably a lot, I have done almost zero bug testing! REPORT ALL BUGS YOU FIND! I will fix them if I can, when I can.

Changelog;
Removed all info from previous versions.
Updated mod from scratch (vanilla build of GC rebuilt for Zan 3)


DOWNLOAD THE MOD

IMPORTANT FOR EVENTUAL MODDERS! If you want to make use of the content of the mod or do something based on it, contact PillowBlaster on ZDoomForums first, or look into this spoiler below.

[spoiler]!!!!!!
IF YOU PLAN ON USING ANYTHING FROM THE MOD OR MAKE SOMETHING BASED ON IT, READ THIS, BECAUSE IT'S IMPORTANT IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE.
!!!!!!

The sounds aren't mine anyway, so 98% of them are free to be used (that 2% that should be asked about first is MartyKirra's or Icytux's VA).
Just remember to credit the source as well, if I provided such in the SNDINFO, or if you appear to know it.
Albeit the mention from where you got it (aka this mod) would also be nice, but not necessary.
If you happen to know the sound or the asset's source, and I haven't listed it in the SNDINFO or the credit page here, drop me a PM please, so I can add it!
Everything else that I took from somewhere or is made by someone else (unless it was made specifically for this mod) is free to be taken, since I have had taken it myself.

The usage or modification without permission is explicitly forbidden by default for mine or DoomNukem's graphic work, the decorate, and the ACS (unless it's stated otherwise in the ACS source file).

If you want to make a balance, addition, 'brutalization', reference, or personal taste reasons-mod\addon, and release it to the public - ask me first.
If you plan on making changes in the content, especially drastic ones, I'll already warn you that it's probably gonna receive instant "No.".
If you look for a reason, it just feels like somebody strips you off your own mod in excuse of "Enchancing" it.
I've had seen enough Brutal Doom variations to see where that might go. (Not that all of them are bad, no no! But if a variation would indeed happen, I'd rather give the keys to someone I can trust.)

(No, seriously, if I'll find you using even a little bit of any weapon, especially the revolver or the super quadshotgun, I swear on me mum that I'll punch you in the gabber.
And strangle you with your own intestines. And that's only beginning of the things I'd most likely do.)


[End of rant]


So yeah - now, just gonna credit here some peeps that are really awesome for giving or letting me steal all this shit! DOUBLE-STANDARDS, AHOY.
(not really, but I hope to not receive cease and desist, as I did my best to not bring blasphemy upon their humble work. :P)

Special thanks to the Crew that consists of DoomNukem, Stan423321, Zhs2, Cage, KeksDose, and last but not least, MartyKirra - for their assistance!
Also, a little mention for Icytux and Zrrion the Insect, as they're cool guys as well.

Stuff in no particular order:

Other stuff:
Marrub (I kinda had extracted a hunch of KF sounds myself, but thanks to him - I actually got all of them now!)

Code stuff: (For more reference, the ACS source files provide info.)
Stan423321 - Majority of ACS work inside this whack of a mod
KeksDose - Skypunch, Gunsnake
Zhs2 - Skill wheel quick selection methods, and a bunch of eventual fixes/additions
Nash - View tilt mode

Sound stuff:
Le Mudcrab\Freesound - Money pickup sounds

Icytux - dem silly Korax sound clips you may find inside
Marty Kirra - Cygnis voicework
Gustaf Grefberg - Enclave OST (The game's also awesome, TRY IT, FOR DUCKS SAKE!)
Dragonforce - Through the Fire and Flames (like you didn't see that coming for the next instance of EXTREMESPHERE, EH!?)

Graphic stuff:

The_Funktasm - Original hands base
KeksDose - Majority of the SFX graphics (For instance, BLUFF.png, CLOUD_01.png, lightnings, or the firebreath)

Those seem like projectile bullets, so you have two options. If 3.0 has SXF_TRANSFERPOINTERS you can use those along with A_SpawnItemEx. If not, use the method the thrubullets mod has. (It should be found in bestever, I know it's hosted along SNS or something)

Nice to see that you are already making good use 3.0! Guess it's time for an official beta release of 3.0...

If things behave differently online and offline, it could be a Zandronum bug. There are many new ZDoom features in 3.0 that have never been tested online and may still need changes in Zandronum itself. If you create a minimal example wad and a tracker ticket for this issue, I'll look into it.

That'd be very awesome actually. I'll be waiting for this.

Thing is, I believe this was present in 2.1.2 as well. When I was porting Project Brutality to 2.1.2 I noticed that online it behaved the same when firing bullets on certain weapons. The problem is that the weapons all seem to use relatively the same code, so I don't know what the issue is. I will work on trying to fix it and if I can't I will try and make a minimal example wad for you.

I had minor issues as well playing this online.. I will list them

1. For some odd reason, I can buy spells to use, but upon buying them, it will say I already have it. I have the spell anyhow, and it works just fine

2. The "Old Dredful" (BFG variant) completly makes the Zan client itself shit itself and crash. The server however, is still online.

3. I get alot of warnings.. Mostly Pstart errors with certain weapons. They do work, just can't figure out why it whines about it.

4. When too many slime barrels go off at once, the whole server just lags out. There splash effect seems to set up the huge lagspike. I was out of sync until I disconnected, and reconnected.

5. The ammo counter is somewhat misleading. I thought for sure I had to reload a few times. And Yes I know the right counter is max ammo, and left is how much ammo is left in the gun.

Other then that, I really like this. A bit heavy in the graphics department, like for example, the explosions caused by the Supershotgun, but eh.. My pc is weak.

Not sure if this is a new bug, my only experience with Zandronum is literally what I messed around with in the last 45 minutes... it seems player coloring is being weird. Adjusting color settings only changes eye color, which in the original mod, is about the only color unchanged by goofing around with player color... I'm guessing something got switched around regarding which colors are changed. I don't know if this is a bug, or intentional for stability reasons, is just something I noticed.

Also as a real bug report thing, Dynamite seems to float upward once it lands after being thrown. The explosion also doesn't appear, but its damage and range is still there.
