A mod for Hexen 2 that adds weapon altfires, stat upgrades, and various balance tweaks, effects, bugfixes, & new features for mappers. This fork is based on the Shadows Of Chaos mod/mapset by Bloodshot, which is in turn based on the Game Of Tomes mod. Detailed description, credits, & instructions included in readme file.

Unzip the contents into your Hexen 2 directory so that there is a folder sibling to the data1 folder. To play, use the included .bat file or otherwise launch the game with the "-game [folder name]" command. You can replay the vanilla game and user maps with the mod, or create new maps using the mod's various features. There are also a few releases that require the mod and use its' features. Install them into the mod's folder, without allowing any overwriting. The only conflict is that they include different Strings.txt, which you'll need to manage. If you don't plan on reading or modifying the mod's code, delete the "src" source code folder.

Hi i can't find the Game of Tomes you've included in the mod, even on readme files. Is it the lastest one?

Not sure. The mod originated in 2017, so it probably used the latest version at that time. But since then a lot has been changed and added on top of the GOT base. The way Quake engine mods work, you cant really mix & match mods, so if there is a new version of GOT, it cant easily be merged with this mod.

Does this work with Hammer of Thyrion?, I got as far as getting the game to start but when I reach the loading of class character It brings up an error and does nothing...

Same for the expansion file.

Could you let me know the error message?

Hello!
I love your mod and played version 1.18 before without any problems.
Since 1.2 every time I try to enter "Court of 1000 Warriors" i get a crash with "Host_Error: ED_ParseEdict: EDF without closing brace".
I'm playing as Necromancer on Warlock and pumped every point in wisdom up to this point.
Using impulse 51/52

For modinstalation I simply put the soc-pop folder into the Hexen II folder and used the bat file (I created a desktop shortcut).
And before you ask, I'm using the PoP Mission Pack.

If you need more information just tell me what and where to find.

But still thanks for the awesome mod and please keep up the good work!

Hi, glad you've enjoyed the mod. In the "maps" subfolder, delete the "meso6.ent" file. Then the map will work fine.

Edit: The mod download is now updated with a fix.

Hello I am having a problem. In the pyramid hub when using the serpent eye gem the snake that you need to kill seems to be invincible.

edit: looks like the glyph works somehow; I'm playing paladin and tossed a bunch at it.

Thanks for the report, it'll be fixed in the next version.
