About this mod

Description:
Tweaks the PR's primary fire to be more like the original from Doom 1/2.  Fire rate now matches the original plasma gun, and each shot does MUCH more damage while costing 2 cell ammo.  Also rebalances the charge rate for Heat Blast to account for these changes.  Overall DPS is significantly increased, but the slower projectile speed and ammo cost mean greater discretion is needed for effective use.

Installation (Microsoft Store version not supported):
  1. Download the latest version of DoomModInjector, and place it in your DOOMEternal install directory (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\DOOMEternal\).  Join the Doom 2016+ Modding Discord server to stay up-to-date on each new release (each game update will require a updated injector, and potentially updated mods) and for troubleshooting assistance.
  2. Download OldSchoolPR.zip and place it within your Mods folder within your install directory (included with DoomModInjector)
  3. Run EternalModInjector.bat, the game will launch automatically
  4. From now on you can launch the game normally as long as the game doesn't update!

Updating with mods:
  1. Anytime that Doom Eternal updates, you will need a new version of DoomModInjector, and potentially new versions of any mods that you use.  Make sure that you have the latest versions of everything, or you will encounter problems!
  2. Delete or move all mod files from your Mods folder and run EternalModInjector.bat
  3. Verify your game files and confirm that the game launches and runs without issue
  4. Open DoomModInjector.dat and change ":RESET_BACKUPS=0" to ":RESET_BACKUPS=1"
  5. Install updated mods like usual (Place in Mods folder, run EternalModInjector.bat)

Removal:
  1. Simply delete or move OldSchoolPR.zip from your Mods folder and run EternalModInjector.bat again
