ZDoom Wars I 2.2b

Huge release here with 62 different bulletpoints. Hope it was worth the wait!

General:

-With Skulltag fixing DesignatedTeam for the 98E release, DesignatedTeam was reactivated. This again means flawless AI in Teamplay, and it is once again possible to play with 4 teams! Team LMS should be the best it has ever been now, including the last version of TZDWars as well.

-This hasn’t been *fully* implemented as far as my concepts for these ideas go, but you can also successfully play other game modes such as CTF and all that jazz with ZDWars now.

-Finally reorganized, reconfigured, downsized, cleaned up, pasteurized, homogenized and added all the fancy GLDefs and minor details that were present in LMS that weren’t in TLMS.

-This also means an absurd amount of glitches that were present in Team LMS have been fixed as well. It should run a hell of a lot smoother now.

-Added a fix Nashgore Blood fix from Stronghold. This means that colored blood is no longer black and now is translated properly. Thank you Popsoap and Thetis!

-Removed A_DropFire from humanoid monsters so they all don’t catch on fire when one monster does. If ZDWars had elemental based damage I’d totally use and abuse A_DropFire, but since it doesn’t it’s gone.

-Reconverted all the summoners into their native palettes for games like Hexen, Strife and Heretic. This just means the summoning animation should look a lot more detailed for OpenGL users.

-Added special summonballs for hero monsters. The only classes that don’t have them are Chex and Virus because I couldn’t find any great sprites for it in their respective wads. Anyone have suggestions for those two?

-Made a few GLDefs for some items. Will make more once I figure out a good way to light the bobbing items.

Vile Pulse: Pulsed Viles on TLMS behaved like invincible Arch Viles

-Entity: Enhanced colored translations for the Entity.

Balance:

-Crusaders: Reduced the attack speed of upgraded Crusaders to 29 from 26.

Mills: Gave all Mills more of a chance of converting colors correctly when being revived.

Treadmill: Treadmills now have a higher chance of converting colors correctly from a corpse.

Bugs:

Upgraded Spores: Upgraded Spores converted into regular ones upon being revived.

SpreadShot Turret: Red Spreadshot Turrets didn’t have the right sprite assigned to them so they appeared to be level 3 at level 1.

ZDoom Wars I 2.1b Patch #4

Additions:

-Strife Player: Because the new version wont be out until 98e, I thought I’d give you guys at least one thing from it. Strife player pawns now fully translate.

Bugfixes:

-Colored Zombiemen: I’m not saying what, but there was something very broken about them. I feel really really bad for this.

-Team Yeti Summoners: Team Yeti summoners would summon Wendigos.
