Blorc: The mod that was originally meant to replace freedoom monsters sprites and then became the spiritual sucessor of Alpha Elements is back with another update =P

Now that some in-game mechanics have matured a little bit, I think they are almost ready to be shared to the public.

In case you haven't heard about this mod before, this is a list of some incoming features:

- Weapon upgrades (Unlocks):
By default, you can only upgrade the cdg carbine. Each level you complete will unlock a different weapon to upgrade.
The more you play, the more weapons you will be able to upgrade.

- Upgrade Tokens:
Once you complete a level, you will obtain an upgrade token, which can be placed on any weapon you have previously unlocked.
Tokens are reusable, so you can use it on a weapon, then eventually take that upgrade away and place it somewhere else.
You can obtain up to 5 tokens. That being said, you can also increase tokens capacity by obtaining certain amount of medals.

- Combo kills:
A combo kill is obtained when you kill a certain amount of monsters within a small amount of time.
Each time you kill someone the timer resets, so you can use this to your advantage to keep increasing the combo until you either run out of monsters or time.
Also, the bigger the combo, the more benefits you will obtain, therefore encouraging fast-paced gameplays.
Combo kills beyond 5 will start regenerating health. Combo kills beyond 15 will regenerate armor as well.
Combo kills beyond 40 will start regenerating your backpack ammunition.
Once you reach combos beyond 50 it will even start regenerating your weapon's magazine. Use it properly and you might even not need to reload certain weapons.

- Medals (Combo kills rewards):
Medals are obtained once you reach certain amount of monsters killed in one combo run. You can obtain several medals in one large run.
You can check in the medals menu how much of those medals you have obtained on both the current map and all maps you've played up to this point. There are 4 medal tiers, each one represents how far you've managed to reach a combo in a single run.

- Medals rewards (Unlocks):
Obtaining certain amounts of medals will allow you to unlock certain weapons that couldn't be obtained otherwise and even increase your total maximum tokens capacity. You can unlock these rewards at any order.

- Cursed run:
The game now features an additional skill for those who seeks some challenge.
Some monsters are replaced with an healthier, more agressive counterpart.
These monsters are randomly spawned so you can't predict when you will face one.

This update is expected to be released on Halloween (which is also my birthday), so I hope you have fun =P

So I found some wierd bug.

There's a chance where you can't 'reload' your weapons anymore. So, if you're run out of ammo, there's no anything you can do.

All you can do is restart the game. (I very hate this bug)

May be someone know how to fix it?

? No links.. I thought early access implied a demo. I mean fixing something in a game noone has access to is kind of a pointless announcement.. Especially for something you've been sitting on for years

I had accidentally archived the mod while updating the file today. ("archive" option is right next to "edit file")
Unarchiving the file forced me to wait 6 hours until the file got authorized and allowed people to download the file back again. (And that just after i've shared the link with people)

The mod is now available for download and sorry for the inconveniance.
It was me, more than anyone who wanted to make today's update available asap when I noticed the un-authed status and shared the links for everyone.

There will be another update at the end of november. There were some issues with the mod because i've rushed up the release to make it match my birthday XD

So, despite the original plan of making the early access available on 2018, i'm still working on improving stuff, at least now that i've rushed it more than i expected.
Some of the stuff that will be added on next update will be an optional weapons mod's debug, customizable through menudef and some sbarinfo and script fixes.
More details later on, as i'm currently busy working on csdmo update 3.
