-doubleammo and -halfdamage parameters?

Recommended Posts

This has probably been discussed somewhere, but I can't for the life of me dredge anything up via Google/forum search.


Something I've wanted to try for some time is playing on UV, but with the crutch of double ammo and half damage. I actually like when WADs don't offer difficulty levels, as I can experience the original intended thing placement while using ITYTD features. For some reason we were given -fast and -respawn, but were never given their Skill 1 (and part of 5) counterparts.


Is there a Boom-compatible port out there that already does this? Could it be written up in DECORATE? I don't think there's a way to DeHackEd it, but I'd love to be wrong on that. Or would compiling one of the open source ports be the only way?

You could do it in DECORATE by adjusting pickup's Inventory.Amount and making custom projectiles / hitscans for your weapons.

If you're going for ZDoom by mentionning DECORATE, then it's a lot simpler to use ZMAPINFO to define a new skill.


It could look like this:

Skill easyviolence
	AmmoFactor = 2.0
	DropAmmoFactor = 2.0
	DamageFactor = 0.5
	SpawnFilter = 4
	Name = "Easy Violence"
	Key = "E"
	ACSReturn = 4

Thank you both. Digging back through MAPINFO/DECORATE wiki pages now for a refresher of all the cool stuff that's in there.
