Welcome to Shadows of Chaos

Hexen II - Shadows of Chaos is a brand new mission pack for Hexen II. Featuring new enemies, revamped classes, a new plot, large maps, and revamped gore. It also features slightly more fleshed out RPG elements thanks to being based on the Game of Tomes mod.

What to expect

Environments based on the whole series. New and old enemies from past games make a return, more puzzles with proper hints, Portal of Praevus features. Explore a new land pulling inspiration from the previous games in the series.

Demo

The release is TBD but a demo version is nearly ready. Will feature 2 relatively large maps and roughly a half hour of gameplay. The demo maps are ready, the release just needs a few features polished before going live.

Special Thanks

Spike - giving Hammer of Thyrion BSP2 support

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.

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
