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'm not great at installing mods. I need help. What I do to help me remember how to troubleshoot any errors I have, is to write down the help and file it under a large wordpad file of how to run all my mods without bugging the author again. Help?

I do the same thing.

Where are you running into trouble? I may be able to help if you're on Windows. I don't use mac or linux.

There can only be windows LOL. I just don't know where to put it or how to make the damn thing run. I'm better at GZdoom and other mods like Tiberium Wars mods, but this is new to me.

Alright, just unzip the files and drop them into your Hexen II folder. Double-click SoC.bat to run the mod.

Alternatly, you could create a shortcut to gluh2_bsp2.exe, place it on your desktop, right click on it, go to properties and add -game SoC to the target line and play it from there.

Good luck, it's a great mod.

Edit: since you're on Win 10, I would also set gluh2_bsp2.exe to run as admin regardless of whether you use the .bat or run from the .exe itself.

Cant run the Mod:

FATAL ERROR: Mod_LoadBrushModel: maps/demo1.bsp has wrong version number (844124994 should be 29)

Running glhexen2 1.28 on Linux. Is there a newer glhexen2 version I am not aware of?

You have to use the gluh2_bsp2.exe that comes with the mod. It has bsp2 map support.

Edit: I have no idea about linux support though....

I hope so...

Edit: Also, I just re-downloaded my 'SoC FDG for JACK plus Tools' addon and wow, lol. It's pretty stupid, tbh. I think I was really high when I uploaded it. I gotta figure out how to remove it. :D

Edit2: Whew, it's gone now. My apologies to the 70 odd people who downloaded it. Then again, maybe you got a laugh out of reading my 'tips' file - I know I did, lol.

Hey Shades, I downloaded the second hub you posted but I get errors related to missing models/sprites. I fixed some by installing the crusader patch, but there are more(proj_ringshock.mdl, etc.). I could substitute them with temp models but I know it'd be glitchy.

Could you upload your models folder? I'd love to try out the second hub! :)

Edit: btw, I'd recommend uploading the second hub here on this page. More people will find it that way.
