[WIP] HeXen III The Land Of The Serpent Riders

Post by Taurustar » Wed Jan 17, 2018 10:40 pm

Hi

I've posted this project so many years ago in the old mighty Skulltag forum (using the link that is here I found the old topic: https://x1.rfc1337.net/stforum/viewtopi ... 9f0bf35272 )but now that I'm back not only playing but also in mod development I'd like to restore this little kid.

What's the big idea?
The story begins so many years later of the defeat of Pareveus in "HeXen II. Portal of pareveus". heroes of the worlds of Chronos, Pathoris and Thyrion see a black cloud in the skies, they go there and find a portal that's open and leads the way to the land of the serpents riders. They decide to go through it and close it by inside, making them trapped but their worlds safe.

Any progress so far?
Yeah, one hub is almost complete (4 levels complete and 1 partially completed but is playable), I already fixed some of the problems about the old demo that I uploaded years ago (one of the problems made the hub impossible to complete due to a missing object needed to finish the hub)

Any screenshots?
duh...

Hi

Here's a little video of one of the Serpent Riders Spirits that you must fight in the game. Elemental D'sparil

Behaviours
  • - Has the Stealth Flag
    - He can teleport to some areas in the map
    - Makes a barrier that reflects attacks (Very little chance)
    - When he dies spawns a couple of thunders near to his body making area damage
Attacks
  • - The original Blast Attack
    - A fireball (The one of Phoenix Rod Heretic Weapon)
    - An Ice Ball (From Wendigo)
    - A couple of poison attacks (That's from Stalker)
    - An instant thunder attack (Thunder is from Realm667 and the missile is from a poison dart from original HeXen)
    - Summons 2 Dark bishops (Instead of 2 Disciples, maybe I'll add them too, also probably I'll give him the chance to summon Taurustar Disciples)
    - Throws some ghosts to follow and kill you (Same as Traductus attack)

Some details:
  • -This is the first map that will spawn monsters over the time (each 3 minutes will respawn a certain number of Death Knight, it will depend what difficulty level are you playing)
    -This hub will be the harder on the mod, but also will have a very generous ammoun of artifacts, health and mana to survive
    -Is the shorter Hub in the mod(Technically it has 7 maps, from 18 to 24, but the "hub" area are the only 3 first maps)
    -There's only 1 Torik message in this hub

Hi

I had a really busy week in my job but now I can show something here hehehe

phpBB [media]


This video is the fight in the real map with the Serpent Rider D'sparil. Also it shows how Monk class is (with also his powered weapons).

I've also:
  • D'sparil now has more chance to teleport and attack when he has low health
  • D'sparil can summon now Taurustar Disciples, D'sparil Disciples and Dark bishops as I show in the last video.
  • D'sparil is not Stealth anymore, but it has traslucency and also he has +GHOST flag (so, some attacks won't work on him)
  • New sounds were added to the game
  • Dynamic Lights were added in some weapons projectiles and also in the new monsters projectiles or states
  • Some of the Heretic Monsters were added (Golem, NitroGolem, D'sparil Disciple, Saberclaw and Ophidian)
  • I've changed the Hermit class 2nd Weapon from "Infested Bow" to "Ethereal Crossbow", both uses Blue mana
  • I've fixed the damage done by weapons, specially with the 4th weapons of classes, also I fixed the ammount of mana that they use/give
Also here are some pictures of Map02 Dark Cavern. Level made by GG_Fritog

Hi

Here are some info and progress so far now... I've tested the mod in the last couple of days online in Zandronum, and I realized some stuff (same as test it singleplayer on Zandro and GZDoom)
  • For any strange reason, Texture Scale doesn't work in Zandronum Online (it makes the textures look with the normal scale instead of the scale that I set, This problem doesn't happen in Zandronum singleplayer and GZDoom, but I have a problem if the scale is negative in GZDoom)
  • Same as texture scale, Floor panning and Floor Rotation has some issues on GZDoom (And Zandronum Online), at the moment I've been trying to figure making more tests, but I've seen that some cases that doesn't work correctly and in others work very well.
With this in mind probably I'll guide my efforts in focusing only in one of these engines and try to fix whatever problem or whatever akward effect on there.


Ok, now some little progress in the new map, I'm progressing really slow because I'm trying to make it similar as possible, I hope I will get some really good result at the end of this map.

Hi

Finally I finished the map. It's an enhanced version of the HeXen II map called "Kings Court" in the Blacksmarsh hub. I'm really confident that is a good result after all, I still need to figure some differences of the map between Zandronum and GZDoom (some offsets looks completely different and some slopes don't work correctly), it's the first map that I use UDMF, and that makes more easier to achieve some effects there.

Anyway Hope you enjoy the screens.

Hello

I've been really busy these last weeks in my job, but that doesn't mean that I was doing nothing about this project

Some updates in the first hub: the maps Map03: Heresiarch Temple and Map04: Swamp of Torik are completed... Here are some screenshots

I have a good news about this... Probably it could be too soon to announce it but actually I have a demo that I'm going to publish to GZDoom in a couple of days. Besides I'm going to make a server in TSPG servers with this mod in a open server (Yea, this time I'm going to make it as Public test). The reason of this is because I have the first 2 hubs completed, I'm still having the help of Madcat that is helping me with the 3rd Hub, besides there's a lot of work to do but I'm going to reserve the details of the demo that I'm going to publish in my next post.

Anyway so here are the screenshots of the 2 maps that I haven't post it yet of the 1st hub.

So finally After a couple of months of work here is a Public testing wad for Zandronum/GZDoom of HeXen 3

What does this contain?

Actually this has the first 2 episodes of HeXen 3: The Land of the Serpent Riders, The Dark Temple and Korax Fortress. Besides the new classes that were supposed to have in the old beta from 2010 but ripped in the demo version that I launched when I restarted the project.
Some levels has been improved, with the idea to give a better feeling of this.

So this still as WIP

Yea, it is, actually I must add more content, specially for the weapon stuff that is going to modified for the last version (It will have 6 weapons per class and not 4, besides a new type of Mana is added), also some sprites must be changed, and there still a decorate work to do.

I must say that this project is taking so long, but I guess you will enjoy some moments of it. There's still work to do and I appreciate if you have some feedback. have fun with it and share your comments here.

There's one critical bug on Map05 and Map02 with line blocking, it doesn't change the line properties well via script in Co-Op, in the map02 I had to use Rcon to run the script again (with Puke) and it fixes the problem, but with the Map05 I can't do anything, that makes the hub impassable because there's a puzzle item needed on the house.

Besides there's a line blocking door in Map03 in mp and sp... but is not critical (you can just use the other door instead)

I reccommend to play it in singleplayer to avoid any problems
