Summary0000589: DamNums/DukeShadows Mod Incompatibility [Event Handlers?]
DescriptionNash's Duke3D-Style Shadows and my own DamNums (see links in Steps to Reproduce below) are both drop-in minimods that use event handlers to provide some "drop-in" cosmetic effect that affects all monster actors. In theory, there should be no conflicts between the mods, since the monster actors themselves aren't touched, but loading one mod still makes the other not work.

My guess is that the one event handler (or its MAPINFO def) is getting clobbered by the other for some reason. If so, that's really limiting the usefulness of the entire system.
Steps To ReproduceDownload the two following mods:
  1. DamNums:
  2. Duke3D-Style Shadows:

Load them both. You only get shadows XOR damage numbers -- whichever comes last will take precedence.
TagsNo tags attached.

Are you using the most recent builds? Not too long ago, EventHandlers and AddEventHandlers accidentally had the reversed concepts where one replaced the other. If you're still using an older build, that's why.

Give the most recent ones a try, if not.

This bug is in 2.4's release, by the way.

I do think a 2.4.1 to address this and a couple other issues that have been fixed would help things out.

It's precisely that bug, which makes this already fixed.

My bad -- was absentmindedly testing on the release build.
