Korax Mod (KMOD) is a gameplay modification that allows you to play the original Hexen levels in Direct 3D / OpenGL with some new RPG features, making for a much more differentiated gameplay according to
which class you play. With the fighter, you'll laugh in the beginning as it'll be very easy, and will sweat (and die) in the end. With the mage, you'll have an extremely tough start and a child's play towards the end.

Features:

  • Visually advanced 3D engine
    • Complete Direct 3D / OpenGL acceleration (jHexen engine)
    • Support for MD2 models (about a dozen Heretic II/Hexen II models included, as well as two new models created exclusively for KMOD)
  • New RPG-like skills and levels system
    • Experience points for monsters killed
    • Character generation before starting a game
    • Manually adjustable skills after reaching a new level
    • An all-new spell system with five spells for the mage, three for the cleric and one for the fighter, using a new resource
    • Character height depends on class
    • Certain characters can't use certain items
  • Damage skins: once the HP of a monster sinks below 50% of its start value, the damage skin of the monster is activated, making it visually plain it's low on health. Depending on the monster, it can mean things like bleeding chest, broken horn, torn wing etc.
  • New weapon enhancements for the Fighter's Quietus and the Mage's Sapphire Wand (there are now 4 different versions of the wand). All Fighter weapons can now be used without mana
  • Certain monsters might drop some treasure when they die (silver and gold bars)
  • Between episodes you will be transported into a shop in another dimension where you can extend your equipment, using the treasure collected from dead monsters
  • Other changes compared to the original Hexen:
    • several monsters have become stronger
    • all boss monsters became much stronger
    • movement patterns of Death Wyvern completely changed
    • if you fool around with a Heresiarch too long, unexpected reinforcements may arrive

Mod page cleanup

News

The Korax Mod page on ModDB was originally set up not so much by us the developers but by some of our fans, and until a short time ago we had no control over its contents. Not only did it contain some incorrect information, the only downloads were a broken and abandoned beta and a "demo" (actually first beta) of one of our different projects.

The last stable version of KMOD is v2.8 from 2004, which has now been uploaded here. There has been no meaningful development on this mod since then. The successor to KMOD is KoraxRPG, an FPS-RPG engine, the first game based upon it is Scattered Evil (also here on ModDB).

The "get_numforname: clust1mesg not found!" crash is caused by using version 1.0 of the hexen.wad file instead of version 1.1. You need to download and install the official patch. Unpack it and run the batch file it creates. The datestamp on the version 1.1 file should be 1996, not 1995.

When you enter in the main door of the seven portals, you beat a lot of enemies and then face three of those shielded guys with a lizard shooting at you right? When you kill the shielded guys the star-like stairs appear letting you to go into the portal, but when I go into it, it says:
get_numforname: clust1mesg not found! or something like that and then the game crashes. This mod is spectacular, please tell me what to do!

Hey Krycha, just read your review on our MOD, it was very nice, it's always good to know what people think about our work. Most MOD makers out there work out of passion and for the opportunity of adding personnal touches to a given game he/she liked, but it's always bery nice to see people also enjoying and playing it as we do. ;)

Thanks!
