Hexen II - Shadows of Chaos

Hexen II mod |

Follow 84

Hexen II - Shadows of Chaos is a mod/mini mission pack for Hexen 2, melding elements of heretic and hexen 1 into the newer title. Based on a heavily modified version of the excellent game of tomes mod, it features revamped classes, alternate fires based on your player level, new maps and enemies, and much more brutal gore to bring it closer to hexen 1 in tone. Experience Hexen 2 with new twists, puzzles, and full coop support on large maps thanks to spike's addition of BSP2 support

    Uploaded an FGD for J.A.C.K. users last night. Also includes compilers (for windows) and Wally. The FGD is based on bloodshot's but I've been using it on my own maps so I had to rewrite/delete some stuff that's not in the regular SoC progs.dat. It should load error free, assuming the SoC folder is set as your Mod Directory in J.A.C.K.

    FGD files can be opened with Notepad or any text editor so if I missed something you can change it to your liking.

    Now go make some maps for me to play! :)

      I just uploaded a small weapon addon myself. (Was waiting on a reply from bloodshot to see if it was ok for me post, it. Didn't realize it would instantly link here when I uploaded it on the site, lol. First time I've uploaded something here...or anywhere...)

      As to your question, I'm pretty new to coding myself so I'm sure bloodshot or someone else could probably answer this better but I'd simply check out the h2 folder in the SoC directory. Vorpal.hc is the Vorpal Sword, Crossbow.hc is the Crossbow, etc. Weapons.hc contains more weapon/class specific functions. Play around with some of the code then use FTEqccgui to compile your progs.dat and test your results! That's pretty much all I did, hehe.

      SoC is great btw, simply awesome!

    This is absolutely INCREDIBLE. I seriously cannot believe that that H2 modding scene has FINALLY taken off - man I have been waiting for this for YEARS.. hell decades, at this point, nearly!!!

    Would be amazing if it could work with this pack: Hexen2retex.narod.ru
    Alternatively, if you know some other properly working HD mods for HoT.. Inkubo's site seems to be down, at least the dl bit. I know that I tried the original Game of Tomes with the pack from that page and it didn't want to play nice, probably because it is based on JHexen. Still, it looks amazing, would be great to get textures like that with your mod.

      Unfortunately i don't think hammer of thyrion supports loading of external files, and this branch would have to be updated separately.

      Maybe once spike updates FTEQW to have more accurate Hexen 2 support and this mod works on it we could but for now I'm no engine coder so there's not much i can do.

        I see.. makes sense :) Ah well, for me the main thing is new levels and mechanics to dig into, gfx would just be a nice top layer on the awesome cake.
