Misc. Author Info : AKA "Dick S. Long"
Description : many of those who are reading this now will argue that a modification like
""""""""""" 'Zero Tolerance' needs no extras whatsoever - it's just perfect.
True, but have you tried facing HR-style hordes of demons with this set?
I did, and you can call me wimp or DOOM-llama, but that's when I realized
this jewel lacked a truly powerful, effective, ultimate weapon.
And so I decided to stay true to the original author indications, by adding
to Infinity what Zero Prophet always wanted to:
... a black-hole-style suction effect! ...
I also took the liberty of integrating a new, more bulky blood system
together with a few touchups on a couple monster projectiles.
This is my humble homage to this monster of an arsenal - may you enjoy it!
September 29, 2011: initial release.
May 17, 2012: release #1+.
- polished the BLOOD lump.
- added The_Lurkers' replacement blood for former humans.
January 31, 2013: release #3.
- added custom small font and standard status bar mugshot.
- altered Z_DOOM lump.
- fixed behaviour of particle actors on moving flats (MOVEWITHSECTOR).
- improved appearance of still actors whenever applicable (FORCEXYBILLBOARD).
- fixed/balanced behaviour of redefined bosses.
September 1, 2016: release #4.
- incorporated base modification from the original author, in order
to render the addon independent from further alterations
of the starting package. The original files are included _unaltered_
in the final .PK3 archive; no credit infringement is intended.
- marked unsupported video modes in the appropriate (G)ZDOOM menu.
(1) The suggested commandline for launching the modification is the following one
(assumes that the modification has been decompressed in subdirectory 'RSL'
of your (G)ZDOOM directory):
(g)zdoom.exe -iwad <IWAD_PATH>\<IWAD_FILE> -file <CUSTOM_LEVEL_PATHNAME> RSL\rslzerox.pk3
Mainly credits to : Zero Prophet, author of the (unsurpassable!) original version of 'Zero Tolerance'!

The_Lurkers for "Move Over Nashgore"
Tormentor667 for the custom small font
Jack101 for the custom standard status bar mugshot.
