Hexen II - Shadows of Chaos

Hexen II mod |

Follow 77

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

    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.

    With Hammer of Thyrion 1.5.8 and a verified complete download with the right md5 (pre extraction), it crashes with FATAL ERROR: Mod_LoadBrushModel: maps/demo1.bsp has wrong version number (844124994 should be 29) when trying to start with any class.

    I don't think HoT supports sv_consistency toggling, so I can't force it to load the bsp.

      You need to use the bundled build of Hammer of Thyrion, it will not work with any other engine

      Spike updated HoT with BSP2, which is what makes the large maps possible

        Are these patches for BSP2 support available anywhere? I'm on Linux so the Windows binaries are no go, and I use my own patch for HoT to uncap the framerate.

        As of right now no, unfortunately you'll have to wait until bsp2 gets merged into the main HoT branch to get linux support

    If Game of Tomes is to HeXen 2 as Quoth was to Quake, then Shadows of Chaos is HeXen 2's 'Arcane Dimensions.' It took the good and built upon it in every way, including a much MUCH larger menagerie of baddies from the whole series to boot, and then some (and a bunch not even in the VERY SOON TO BE HERE demo). ;)
