GZDOOM - Heretic Coop - sv_noweaponspawn flag not working

Recommended Posts

So after a coop session of DOOM2 with my friend we fire up Heretic. All the weapons flagged multiplayer are displaying in the coop game. I disable the command through the menu - does not work, I put it through the console - does not work.

I exit heretic and we play doom2 for laughs. Now Doom2 has the exact same problem. I was able to fix doom2 by disabling and exiting Doom2 and it seems to have saved. But whenever I go into Heretic everything is fucky.

I add sv_noweaponspawn=1 to the .ini under [Heretic.LocalServerInfo]. When I launch it in single player the config will display spawn multi weapons as "no" in gameplay options. When I close and launch the game again it will be displayed as yes and sv_noweaponspawn=1 will be missing from [Heretic.LocalServerInfo].

So before launching the multiplayer.bat gzdoom heretic.wad -netmode 0 -host 2 -extratic -dup 1 -skill 4

I re-update the zdoom.user.ini with sv_noweaponspawn=1 under [Heretic.LocalServerInfo]. Spawn multi weapons is "no" under gameplay options but multiplayer things are still displayed. I haven't been able to find any solutions aside from some guy on zdoom forums removing multiplayer things from the maps, and a Zandronum thread http://zandronum.com/tracker/view.php?id=1282 where some guy can't reproduce the issue and said it works for him.

Running latest version of GZDoom 1.8.2 on host & client. Any ideas peeps?

sv_noweaponspawn is a DMFLAG, and is not archived or relevant to the INI. You need to set it as a launch parameter.

Edit: Wait, Heretic co-op, not Hexen. :V
From what I just tested, in the latest ZDoom this is actually working. You might want to actually try again with the latest version as suggested below.

Not on netmode 0, you're not. Although ironically you're supposed to be using 0 anyway (especially with only 2 players). And technically nothing is called "host & client" anyway.

That's not the latest version. In fact it's ancient. I guess you got fooled by the dead homepage. Better check the DRDTeam forum.

Sure got fooled alright. That's good to know for next time. Thanks Graf & Edward.

Well I know it's peers, but sounds better than peer 1 who sets parameters and waits for peer 2 to join.
