Description             : every now and then, I still enjoy myself with a quick run through
...........               an old level with the DeHackEd/ZDOOM version of Immoral Conduct.
                          Some time ago I decided to create a small, graphics-only patch with
                          the right marine hands on the sniper rifle. Now I am releasing this
                          little patch for you old-timers along with a couple other sprites...


May 15, 2010: initial release.

Aug 19, 2010: release #2.

- added custom status bar skin/mugshot.
- added custom menu/log font.

- corrected sniper rifle credits
  (thanks to Marty Kirra for pointing that out).

Sep 01, 2010: release #3.

- added custom player sounds.
- added custom color palette.
- introduced a new high-tier DECORATE weapon to better balance solo gameplay
  (icd-deh originally conceived for deathmatch only).

Mar 21, 2011: release #4.

- added Q3A-style gore effects
  (original modification provided custom blood effects only).
- added custom sprites for shotguns, assault rifle
  (IMHO better suiting the modification theme).

Sep 17, 2011: release #5.

- added target lock system for Assault Battery.
- brought on par with other modifications of mine
  for a small detail.

Apr 25, 2012: release #5+.

- added custom teleportation effect.

Jan 22, 2013: release #7.

- added custom M_DOOM logo.
- completed modification documentation.
- improved appearance of still actors whenever applicable (FORCEXYBILLBOARD).
- fixed attack power of renewed Cyberdemon.
- added an extra set of HUDs readapted from WildWeasel.

June 24, 2014: release #7+.

- added an extra 'Flynn Taggart' player skin
  based off the original HUD concept from DoomNukem.
- redefined explosive barrel and bloodsplatter actors.
- fixed a few formal inconsistencies and spelling mistakes in this very text file.

What's included:

Replacement sprites for the following actors:

Sniper Rifle      : now with proper marine skin-toned gloves.

Shotguns          : customized with wooden parts and levers.

Assault Rifle     : modernized with a badass lock-and-rearm animation.

Zombieman         : now the Zombieman actually wields and fires pistols, and it's
                    much more believable that he scatters pistol clips around.
                    NOW GIBBABLE!

ShotgunGuy        : a zombified marine, one ex-fellow of yours. Holds that powerful
                    black-finished shotgun he lovely drops for you (well, almost).
                    NOW GIBBABLE!

ChaingunGuy       : a brand-new, deadly uzi-equipped soldier with a custom XDeath animation
                    arranged by me.
                    NOW GIBBABLE!

DoomImp           : NOW GIBBABLE!

Cyberdemon        : NOW ALWAYS GIBBED!

Spider Mastermind : NOW ALWAYS GIBBED!

A brand-new status bar skin to match the modification theme.
An extra set of HUDs mutuated from WildWeasel (WWHUD\rslwwhud.wad) and DoomNukem (DNHUD\rsldnhud.wad).
A new font for menus and log messages.
A custom color palette to exhalt the dimmed feel of the modification.
Custom player sounds to fit with the new mugshot.
Custom Q3A-style gibs, where applicable.
A custom teleportation effect.
A new definition of explosive barrel.
Particle-style bloodsplatter effects.

And a new high-tier weapon, the Assault Battery.
Perfect heavy artillery device (with sprites originally produced by Cory Whittle) that
can unleash six seeker missiles that follow the pointed target (if any).
Two well-placed rounds - with all missiles connecting - can destroy a Cyberdemon.
Go figure... :-D


(1) The suggested commandline for launching the modification is the following one
    (assumes that the modification AND the original mod have been decompressed in subdirectory 'RSL'
     of your (G)ZDOOM directory):

    (g)zdoom.exe -iwad <IWAD_PATH>\<IWAD_FILE> -file <CUSTOM_LEVEL_PATHNAME> RSL\icd-deh.wad RSL\rsliczdp.wad

(2) To try the added set of HUDs from WildWeasel, use the following commandline
    (assumes that the modification AND the original mod have been decompressed in subdirectory 'RSL'
     of your (G)ZDOOM directory):

    (g)zdoom.exe -iwad <IWAD_PATH>\<IWAD_FILE> -file <CUSTOM_LEVEL_PATHNAME> RSL\icd-deh.wad
     RSL\rsliczdp.wad RSL\WWHUD\rslwwhud.wad

(3) Similarly, for the extra 'Flynn Taggart' skin stemming from the DoomNukem HUD concept, use
    the following commandline (assumes that the modification AND the original mod have been decompressed
    in subdirectory 'RSL' of your (G)ZDOOM directory):

    (g)zdoom.exe -iwad <IWAD_PATH>\<IWAD_FILE> -file <CUSTOM_LEVEL_PATHNAME> RSL\icd-deh.wad
     RSL\rsliczdp.wad RSL\DNHUD\rsldnhud.wad
