Sure, no problem

If you're worrying about ammo (either use the unlimited ammo option or) that's an ennemy health factor you'd want.

I'm kinda starting to think ermm...4 sliders: speed, number, %health, %damage...+1 text indicator "average difficulty" = speed*number*%health*%damage/(10 000)

*suddently notices*OMG I slowed bosses aswell...hmmm...shall I keep it that way?
Speed affects bosses
number: no
health & dmg: I guess they shouldn't

[When I have time to]/[if I] implement ennemy health & dmg sliders I'll make them range from 1% to 200% inccase some people would want to thoughen things a bit... demoncrusher, 10x ennemies, 200%hp, 200%dmg, any volunteers?
