Hello there! It's my new remake of original Doom II maps. There are dynamic lights only and a lot of new features now. Some places or elements were reworked, but i tried to keep original view. Also, this map-pack not using a new textures or sprites and have full compatibility with some mods or texture-packs (for example, Brutal Doom bugging somewhere, but it's not fatal, i guess) :3.

Please, read Requirements bellow. And yeah, sorry for my awful english...

Walkthrough (old):

Other series of walkthrough you can find here


Development:

All information about it you can find on my page (in blogs). May be not so much details, but i'll try to give a main news about development.



Known bugs:

- Sectors with water working not correctly in Brutal Doom and Project Brutality. Headshots above the water can freeze your computer for a while. Also, punched monsters in the water just exploding without any reason. IMPs multiplying in water and s***ng a tonns of brutal bonuses (Partly fixed in new Brutal Doom, but still bugged in Project Brutality).

- Lamps in Brutal Doom keeps light even when broken. It occurs, because dynamic lights and lamps are different things. I can make light into lamps, but if you'll break them, some places will drown in darkness.

- Punched IMPs into chasm is not counted as killed by player. WTH i just said... Anyway, when you trying to punch IMP into chasm on map20 (with Brutal Doom or Project Brutality of course), he (or she... whatever) turns to something that isn't "monster". So, theoretically, you kill monster (body disappeared, corpse spawned), but it isn't counted as killed.



FAQ:

  • Q: Why all levels in full darkness and i can't see nothing?
  • A: Check you GZDoom settings. Make sure, that dynamic lights are alowed and values of size and intensity close to 1.0. And yeah, map-pack not working in software mode
  • Q: Why all textures are grey?
  • A: Turn off "Force additive lightning"
  • Q: Where i can change all settings?
  • A: Options/Display options/OpenGL options/Dynamic lights options. Also you can change some another options for your self. Try it, but please, do not report me about it... (Attention, in new versions of GZDoom, some settings are not available anymore).
  • Q: What means FOGZ version?
  • A: A: FOGZ - For Other GZdoom. Some effects look wrong in some old and some different versions of GZDoom. FOGZ version cuts some effects for compatibility.
  • Q: Why all liquids are almost invisible?
  • A: WAD require certain version of GZDoom. If you see liquids like this (screenshot below), you can use FOGZ version of my WAD. In this version liquids will look like normal (but they will keep depth)

Incredible work here comrade...It's a strange feeling playing through Doom 2 levels with this level of lighting, the job here is staggering, and don't even get me started on the attention to detail on what has been added, essentially making sense out of Doom's architecture...However I would like to ask: How does one use "The Crusher" on map 06?

I've been running in circles being minced by that Spider Mastermind without knowing how to crush that bastard! Please tell me how....

Well. Moving that switch was a not good decision, now i think. So if you want to start crusher, you need to get in blue key area and find switch (right side of blue key).

(that's screenshot of this place.. damn BBcode not working -_-)

P.S: I think i'll fix that in next version and get it back to normal position. I don't remember why i did that. May be because that was so easy...

Oh. Okay then...
I fell slightly dumb for not looking up there...I mean I see your point in the switch being too easy at it's "classic position"...but I believe leaving it there is for the best...
Thank you for answering! And again I'am absolutely in love with this mod, Nice Work!

Quick question can this work with Maps of Chaos?

+Ku6EPyXOBEPTKA+

It's can't be physically. How do you imagine this? You can't load them in same time, because both wads are mappacks which loading same maps files (replacing old maps).

May be i can't just understand but what do you mean, when you say "work with Maps of Chaos"?

I've tried playing this Doom II remake with Lithium, and for some reason, the monsters have not been appeared at all. The message says "Warning: ACS function strlen called with invalid string argument." Is there any way for me to play HontE Remastered with Lithium?

The main reason why this happened - it's same ACS scripts names in wad scripts and Lithium scripts. But it's only theoretical. Need to check this.

Well. Found what is actually wrong. Monsters not spawning because they have no any class attachment (no one class was set). Looks like Lithium has class flag check.

ACS warrning still apear. IDK what's wrong with that. And yeah, i don't know when i will upload a new version of wad, so if you can't wait anymore, you can just open WAD in Doom Builder, map by map choose all things on them and correct info (set class 1 - class 5 checkboxes).

And yeah... After this you can't to chose skill level actually, because all will be spawned anyway.

P:S: I played with different mods with class-chose feature, but this first WAD that actually have troubles with that.

Wow, I didn't know that Lithium is like the first mod that doesn't get the monsters to spawn in HontE at all, and I felt like Lithium would work great in this kind of mappack, considering how dark Lithium is. I've been playing Death Foretold with HontE, and it worked perfectly!

After some tests i can say, that all is working right (include skill levels) if class# checkboxes will be set on. About ACS, well, still can't find solution. It's really somwhere in my WAD, but idk where is.

Well... Nope! Problem not in same script names. I trying to figure out, but something really strange just happened. For example, without any reason some lights disappeared.

I've also tried HontE Remastered with Project Brutality, and for some reason, the monsters keep increasing according to my kill count when I'm in Underhalls. Is this mappack not working so well with Project Brutality? I'm using the 3.0 test version.

It's old one bug of Brutal Doom (and of course Project Brutality because it based on it). It's one problem, that actually i cant fix (like freezes after headshot in water). BTW in the last vesion of Brutal Doom, this problem has been solved. IDK why PB missed this, but IMPs are really crazy in water. I think this happening because something wrong in code. PB has "states" for swiming monsters, but this feature was unfinished.

In other cases, PB working without any problems (except lags on Barrels 'O fun, because this happening even on original map).

Hope so, that after new BD release, PB will be based on it.

P.S: Sorry for same reply. Something wrong and my last message was as reply of last comment.
