Hello,

Yet another request from me, and it's about the monster counter in cooperative/survival mode. At the moment, the scoreboard shows how many monsters are initially there in the map. I really liked that when that got introduced, but I would like to see it take a step further. I would like it to update itself when monsters are revived by Archviles or when monsters are spawned. It's not something major, but I think it would be a nice addition.

It could be linked to the automap monster counter, which does the same thing in ZD. (but not ZDoom)

Alternatively, you might show the number of monsters remaining instead, which would go up when monsters are spawned or revived, as well as going down when monsters are killed.

This indeed would be a good addition, if only for survival. Many survival maps require that all monsters be dead before progressing to the next. Having a built-in display would make this easier for wad authors so they don't have to implement their own in-game counters.

The total monster count will be updated as monsters respawn / get resurrected / spawn from ACS. That's the best way.
