About HESK: Hyugaren with 4 comments by CharonHexagon on Feb 1st, 2015

In the new features chapter, hardware shaders are the real deal. Now Vignette effect it's fully programmed into GLSL.

Vignette on

Vignette off

However, if this feature isn't of your liking, you can always disable it, along with the remaining visual features (And with almost any other feature in the game) through the HESK Options menu.

Please take note that some shaders can't be disabled, like hud shaders,
which brings animation to some hud items [i.e.: Health bar].

Also, we must mention the further expansion of the HUD. You can encounter up to three icons at time above the inventory's HUD, with varying duration and appareance, which will lead us into the next chapter: Expanded items.

Some items will have a lasting effect. One of them is the "Immunity Enhancer". This item will enhance the resistance of your Immune System for a limited period of time, thus draining it more slowly if you run out of armor. The duration of its effect will be noted by the varying icon: The icon will gradually start to disappear at the same time as the drug effect.

Note that you can only take up to three non-immediate effect drugs at time.

Some items can be encountered with variations of themselves. In this case, there are three variations of the Immunity Enhancer:

Type I: This variation has a moderate duration, with a moderate immunity resistance.
Type II: This variation has a long duration, with a weak immunity resistance.
Type III: This variation has a short duration, with a strong immunity resistance.

Sadly, in bewteen all this progress, the development faced some issues too. As some followers knows, this mod was initially developed for ZDoom, not for it's OpenGL variant. It still have most of the original code, and the original map build, which (I think) it's what brought some troubles.

Version 2.0.3 of GZDoom has a new improvement: Fully hardware rendering for lighting. The only thing with this is that it needs a different method of mapping. Lighting applied as in HESK: Hyugaren (Specially sector lighting for altitude fog) make a huge stress with this kind of rendering, thus reducing significantly performance. Version 1.8.02, however, has a different way to render this old method of lighting, which keeps the performance at best.

On the other hand, I'm having huge problems with custom shaders in 2.0.3. Those who worked well in 1.8.02 will crash at the very start of the updated port.

For this reason, and although it can be seen as a kind of regression, HESK: Hyugaren will be developed for GZDoom 1.8.02, not for 2.0.3. I hope you can understand, and I'm sorry all this inconvenient.

I'm gonna update once I have more info to give about the development of those features here mentioned. Also, some other major features will be unveiled after I can resolve this inconvenient.

See you later, and remember: Winners don't use drugs. But in Hyugaren, they must.

Why the hell does it have a 9.6 rating? Doom 2 is worth having a complete 10! :/

Just finished Master Levels, a bit disappointed. Most where easy, apart from 3. One of which was cheap with that monster spawner.

What do they mean "This time, the entire forces of the netherworld have overrun Earth." It's supposed to be the forces of hell not the netherworld. :|

Actually Doom never mentions hell, except when the Doom marine in one of the text boxes because thats the conclusion people naturally jump to. Thats what I like about the Doom series, they keep it ambiguous and never tell you whether its hell or not. It could just be a dimension, not necessarily the one you go to when you die. Think of Event Horizon, they accidentally opened a gateway to another dimension... existence there is a different to the one we know.

Maybe you need to read the end/intermission stories better...

Most of them mention the word Hell, most of them mention Doomguy being in Hell, escaping from Hell, killing hellspawn, etc..

Also Inferno is more or less a synonym for Hell.

look down to see the awful truth.

Deimos floats above Hell itself!

The end/intermission stories in all classic Dooms mention the word hell 27 times. Including hellspawn.

Well I suppose one of the Episodes has the word Hell in it, and Thy Flesh Consumed and the maps in it are all references to the bible, but the character in the game doesn't know what the episode/map names are does he :P That seems more like a reference for us than "evidence".
