Thanks to some recent updates in GZDoom that
added extra troublesome startup error spam encouraged me to tidy up my coding habits a bit, as well as some feedback from ICARUSLIVES and a few things I'd declared "missed opportunities," Cola 3 is nearing time for an update. So please let me know if there is any outstanding problem with the mod - I may be tweaking some numbers here and there for purposes of balance, in particular I'm hearing about the shotgun being a bit underpowered, among other things.
I'm also aware that there is a rare game-crash bug that occurs when the player has been killed, but not all the time. I'm having difficulty reproducing it, let alone tracking down any potential cause, so if there's someone out there that can figure this out for me, I will be extremely appreciative of the help.
Once all that's ironed out, I'll be pushing a v1.1 update, and putting the mod on the /idgames archive to be preserved for the foreseeable future.
