The Week of July 13 2018



Castlevania: Simon's Destiny is a non-profit GZDOOM based fangame born as a love letter to this legendary franchise. This mod aims to reinvent the very first NES title of the franchise with a nostalgic yet brand new first person gameplay.


Skyrim Realistic Overhaul 1.8 mod contains 10gb of high quality 2048k/4096k textures. It drastically increase quality while keeping artistic look of original textures. This version is for Special Edition of Skyrim, but it can be used with original version too.


Venom Mod is a general improvement of original RTCW game, with a new challenging and aggressive AI and some exploitation of features of iD Tech 3 engine, keeping the original gameplay.


Earlier this year, we reported on job listings posted to Microsoft’s official Careers page that hinted at new roles within the company dedicated to exploring mod support for Xbox games. Now, a new report from Windows Central contains details from a presentation intended for Microsoft internally and other development partners that goes into greater detail on what this initiative actually involves.


DOOM meets Deus Ex. This map is a love letter to cyberpunk genre as a whole and the Deus Ex franchise in particular. Using the whole new set of custom made textures, the project aims to recreate the look and vibe of an unethical near future corporation run by the forces of hell.

How can I see hotkeys for mod? (How to use daggers on hearts?)

Same here, excellent mod but I'm finding a hard time with this.

I've configured them accordingly but they don't seem to work.

Crashes pretty fast. Right when the gates are whipped open and level 1 begins there's a 'Make Colormaps' error and an access violation error. Running current gzdoom version in hardware mode etc etc. Suggestions would be appreciated.

Really great mod! DOOM - Vania is a nice idea that actually works like hell, with your gzdoom mod.

And it looks awesome! How did you extract the graphics from "Symphonie of the night"?

Cheers and thanks for the work!

Excellent Mod, the best I have ever seen and worthy of a gold medal. You combined Castlevania and Doom like a PB&J sandwich.

Hey Batandy,

Love the game but I'm having major issues. Ver. 1.1 crashes when you get to a certain point in the misty castle. Can't get any further. So, I was excited to see an update. This one won't even start. I get this;

Castlevania.ipk3:zscript.txt, line 3: Class name MenuHandler already exists

Execution could not continue.

1 errors, 0 warnings while compiling Castlevania.ipk3:zscript.txt

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Sorry but i don't know what's going on, i run it fine on the latest Gzdoom. Make sure you are not loading it with other mods that could cause conflicts.
