CHANGELOG (FROM NEWER TO OLDER):
+ "ZAMN_MAIN" (29th October, 2021) [HALLOWEEN 2021 DEMO!!!]
- Added the "Title Screen" Intro Animation in widescreen completely, including the Mode7 animation
which was cropped in the previous demos. It took some time and work to have it cleaned but here it is! ^^
- Improved the "Scoreboard Selection Screen" movement to work smoother.
- Included ACS Library "ACSUtils.acs" by Alexander Korshun and several contributors.
- Added a couple of dummy actors for pickups and items, so GZDoom Builder doesn't mark them as a missing parent actor.
- Moved the player boxes closer to the player starting positions in each map, to reduce the displacement time and
prevent any incorrect interaction with other actors, due that the teleportation is not instant like in singleplayer.
- Map "Mars Needs Cheerleaders" added.
- Added Martians Chase/North enemies and spawn.
- Added a "culling script" which makes dissapear every 3D floor with the model sector tag of '404'.
Triggered by running the game in Software mode on the specified sectors.
To be used with caution as it can conflict with triggers, but it helps to improve performance a little.
- Simplified and revised maps to improve perfomance and fix glitches in Software mode, revised maps:
"Zombie Panic", "Evening Of The Undead", "Day Of The Tentacle", "Terror In Aisle Five", "Chainsaw Hedgemaze",
"Weird Kids On The Block", "Pyramid Of Fear", "Dr Tongues Castle Of Terror", "Titanic Toddler", "Toxic Terrors",
"Mushroom Men", "No Assembly Required" and "Weeds Gone Bad".
- Added level select preview animations for "Zombie Panic", "Day Of The Tentacle", "Evening Of The Undead",
"Terror In Aisle Five", "Chainsaw Hedgemaze Mayhem", "Weird Kids On The Block", "Pyramid Of Fear",
"Dr Tongue's Castle Of Terror", "Titanic Toddler", "Toxic Terrors", "Mushroom Men", "No Assembly Required",
"Weeds Gone Bad", and "Mars Needs Cheerleaders".
- Added a blue translation pallete to the Giant Pod (when hit).
The timing is slowed down to prevent eye strain.
- Fixed player's hurt sound overlapping causing a high volume sound.
- Fixed (hopefully) player failing to change from 1st to 3rd camera and viceversa.

+ "ZAMN_MAIN" (18th September, 2021) [Hotfix Demo!!]
- Custom Pallete added, with some empty spaces for future use, his principal use is for base colors of the monsters

support in software mode.
Still wip, there's room for 40 more colors depending on the future necessity of the future map tiles/palletes.

destination at the same time.

while having the effects of the Red Goo on the player.
Also the GooIcons and a timer appears on the HUD similar as the monster potion.

between states due to inheritance
