Replaces items and enemies with "dark" versions, creepy monsters from the void dimension rather than hell. Soon there's going to be Gothic Chapter (which replaces environments with darker ones, as well as the weapons), so in anticipation the arbitrary changes to the weapons in this mod has been removed. The monsters are more dangerous, move faster, faster projectiles, homing projectiles for the Death Imp, Imps/caco attack more often, complete sound revamp, Baron of Hell and Archvile are taller and enemy melee attacks do more damage. I've now included a separate "Nightmare" addon for more variety of Lost Souls & Pain Elementals, with a Dark theme and made the bosses, Spectres, Mancubus, PainElemental more challenging. Baron of Hell is more challenging and there is now a variety of zombies in the optional addon. Added Ghosts & mini-bosses in the optional addon, zombiePLUS mutator (9 new zombies) and provided ways to disable various optional creatures or to replace zombies with the Swarm.

Load main DMG1.1 file first, the addon second, and mutators and/or compatibility files always last. Make sure to only load one zombie (or swarm) related mutator since they overwrite the same spawns, and one nightmare (or mini-boss) mutator.
The addon is optional but adds many creatures including, 8 more zombies, variants for Imp, Baron, Caco and for Mancubus, various Lost Souls and Pain Elementals, Ghosts (that are semi-common for low level monsters like imps/beasts) & mini-bosses (rare spawns for Baron, Spectre, Mancubus, Archvile). All spawns can be tailored to your taste with the mutators.
Thanks to Sargeant Mark IV for the ideas for the greater enemy difficulty, and the code for the melee attacks that the Caco, Demons & Death Imp utilize, infrared code and Spectre eyes. Thanks to Realm667 for hosting the custom nightmare creatures (Lost Souls, Pain Elementals, Barons, Ghosts, ShadowBeast) and thanks to Vader & Woolie Wool for most of the zombies and for the Wraith, Agaures, Vore, Aracnorb, Swarm and three of the ghosts, the Blot, Shadow & Nightshade (featured in TheRefinery) and thanks to Aerial for the Shadowvile (featured in Hard Doom).
