monsters.lua - Minor changes to monster set up, expect the unexpected! Goes in games/doom subdirectory.

monster.lua - Monsters no longer show up in secrets, plus traps/cages are harsher. Goes in /scripts/ directory.

I should be have be clearer -- I can't support or test modified versions of OBLIGE.  So if you think chaingunner usage is an issue in stock 7.50 or 7.55, then please post a bug report about it and include the config used.

I've never had this issue with the stock versions. I'm going to try the latest .luas Glaice has posted.

You're not using something like Complex Doom or Brutal Doom, are you Herculine? If you are, you're going to get absolutely destroyed without doing some tweaking of the monsters.lua in /games/doom subdirectory, or having fantastic skills and the RNG luck having enough cover in the rooms.

See if this edit works better for you, I've upped the level probs for the chaingunners and tweaked a few others.

Dunno Glaice with all your mods minus the reduced chaingunner mod, made a 10 maps episodic set (Regular size and regular mobs) with Project Brutality (Brutal doom but cranked up even more) with 150 ~ 300 mobs per map , died once on the 7th map but other than that it wasn't THAT bad heh.

It must be the recent edits for the traps that are hitting you hard. Even in limit removing/Boom/ZDoom you have to act fast or you get shredded by gunfire from sergeants or chaingunners. I've upped the trap chance for the demons and lost souls to provide some mixing of the mobs.

Here's something I forgot which fixes the "vines on walls" in Hell themed maps. I forgot that SP_DUDE8 was used for the cave to room transition texture. Place in prefabs/picture subdirectory.

Thanks. I'm still playing through a big set of maps and so far everything has been looking great.

Tried your latest version but when pressing on the generate button, It Give me: Script Error: weird prefab filename: Hallway_vent_cage1

Also tried to generate a Wad without Hallways and/or without Cages but the problem still persist.

Finally ,I Unzipped it with winrar and tried it right out of the box. Could it be winrar that didn't extracted it correctly?

You did unzip with directory structure, right?

See if this helps, place in prefabs/hall subdirectory. I think I found the problem.

Also updated the main archive on top.

You're welcome. Go ahead and post any interesting mapsets in this thread I made a while ago.

You might want to switch over to using 7-Zip from WinRAR, as it's not only free but it supports all the major compression formats (7z, ZIP, RAR, ARJ, etc).
