EOA v1.8 has now been released! Grab a download as soon as possible!
This only made changes to the code file, so if you already have EOA Assets, you'll only need to download the updated EOA Code file (click here to do so).
Also I will write a guide for how to play EOA sometime soon, now that I'm coming across some free time. I operated under the assumption that people who played this mod would have played (or at least known about) DOOM (2016)... but I've met some people who haven't. So this guide will be written... and hey, it may even come in handy for those of you who wish to start playing DOOM (2016)! ;)
