Plutonia 2 Dehacked Not Read

Doomsday loads with Plutonia 2's Dehacked file but even when it is loaded, the story texts are not replaced. Other dehacked files, such as Alien Vendetta, read and replace the story text properly.

Yes, I am loading it under the Plutonia profile, but I am loading PL2.WAD and PL2.deh separately, but I still get Plutonia's story texts when I finish a map that gives you a story text. I then tried to load the zip file, as you did, and it still didn't replace Plutonia 2's story texts. Looking at the Plutonia 2 Dehacked file, the text strings were written in regular caps as opposed to all caps. Could that cause a problem?

Evidently I had forgotten the story in Plutonia as Vermil pointed out, the one I am seeing when loading is in fact the original story and not that from Plutonia 2.

Fixed for 1.9.0-beta6.8

How about this as a solution:

Add new strings using Value definitions (to e.g., jDoom.pk3/values.ded) that contain the names of the Materials that are used for these backgrounds in the IWADs.

Enhance dpDehRead to update these Values if found in a DEH patch.

Extend the Flat <flat-name> InFine command so that a Value Id can be used instead of a flat-name (look for a Value Id first and fall back to a flat look up).

I've just tried this myself and it appears to be working fine for me.

Ensure you are loading with the Plutonia profile in Snowberry
