This fixes the wily grovel errors created by V5B for RozpackV4, allowing it to be played in V5B. Make sure to load this BEFORE RozpackV4, otherwise the patch won't work at all.

4.5 is still in progress, sorry for the delay. Between overtime from online classes (college in general really), collapse over someone for their petty reasons, and cruddy internet, I've had very little free time where I've actually felt good about working on it. However, I've been able to do a lot more over these past few weeks for some reason. From rehauling the powerhouse (again) and the study to structure updating Last Whisper. Weapon layouts have also been looked at (although going through everything is slow) with new, fresh rules. No more or less than 8 weapons per map, 1 weapon per slot, and 1 slot per map has 2 weapons instead (for the minor spicy variety and I don't currently plan on giving up on the core number 8). Large capsules are more varied and placed throughout the map, along with small capsule rearrangement (compared to the archaic "1 of each large capsule per map"). All layouts are now finished, with only texturing remaining on a select few. In theory I'm almost done with it but I just don't know exactly when, my apologies. I hope you all look forward to it.

P.S. Remove Roz16 from rotations it doesn't work for anything that isn't recreational. (Also reminder that the map was replaced entirely in 4.5)

A NEWSLETTER? IN 2018? WOW! INCREDIBLE!

The opening is quite a huge reflective rant and I'm aware some people aren't really into that, so I'm setting a warning here now. If you're interested in what's happened to this project over the past few months, make sure to read it. If not, well, there's pretty pictures and brief explanations that you can enjoy. The ending is quite important though, so make sure to check that out.

Hey everybody! Thanks for attending the online test sessions if you participated in those!
I'm so jittery right now; it's been 3 and a half years.
3 and a half years.
3 AND A HALF YEARS

Yeah, crazy I know. During my downtime at college and when I was feeling alright to work on this, I did just that.
I'm incredibly nervous that such a long period of time would do something towards expectations.
I've undergone multiple mapping style changes over the course of this update and some of the more older maps' years might show.
That's fine. I can't keep this in the bag forever. I've got to release it at some point, right?
Today is that day.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
I AM PROUD TO PRESENT
ROZPACK 4.5

Links on the front page, as usual.

So, what's next then? Well, this version of the pack is the second to last major update that I plan on releasing, but this isn't
a V4 situation. Unlike V4 where it only had one version, I'm going to continue monitoring this closely and provide smaller
updates as necessary. Right now, I'm keeping a close eye on Roz04 and Roz14 as they're the prime suspects of problem children, but I'll be in and out of servers (along with general communication methods) obtaining feedback like I usually do.

As for other projects, I have plans to update the doombuilder tutorial. I have it all laid out and organized already; most of the writing is complete and at least 1/3 of the tutorial walkthrough is complete. I've been in the middle of updating GenesisTunes to fit with V5's songs and overall sound quality/extensions. I don't know when either of these are going to be complete. This is primarily because most of my focus has shifted to working on my own Metroidvania in GZDoom, which has been codenamed AREAG. AREAG has nothing to do with 8BDM and serves to expand my general game/map design portfolio to help prepare for future work. Given enough time, I'll return to give Rozpack its last expansion and upgrading the title to Rozpack V. I have all of the map ideas already worked out, so it's just a matter of actually sitting down and making five more layouts.

Thanks for everyone involved in the making of this pack. I mean it. This was not an easy feat and I'm glad to have the support behind it that I do. Have fun on my latest creations everyone!

Hi I have an important announcement.

To push play away from the beta/release candidate versions and on to the actual release (which was released 8 days ago now), I'll be removing those versions from TSPG on March 31st 2019 around 11:59PM EST. This two weeks notice should be plenty of time for server hosts to update their configs should they choose to continue to host my content.
