About This File

This is the rerelease of our old old old TC Hyena, wich was made between 1994 and 1998. It's not testted this time around and it probaly got hundreds of bugs. But it was rereleased by popular demand. (from people who hadn't played it yet. :p) I don't claim it's good. But I as the head developer of it of course love it as it was my baby for 4 years (before I got online and saw what other people did with the engine). Please don't mail me and tell how much you think it suck (if that's your opinion of it) as I really don't care to hear about it. I also included the old FAQ for the TC as I hope you'll laugh as hard as I did when I read it the other day. ;) Last note: If you decide to play DM in Hyena on e3m1, then you really should use the e3m1ptch.deh file instead of the regular Deh as the map was designed with this grenade launcher weapon in mind. (instead of the bfg. Something for you bfg haters then I suppose ;) )

A suggestion to those who have problems getting it to work with certain exes: delete the cheats section from the dehacked file. It seems to be OK then.

'Codename Bullshit' more like it! Not only do you have to tweak the wad in order to play, but once in you realise that the quality is just abysmal. To the previous reviewer: The only incompetence I can see is the lack of information from the author as to what port to use - a massive fail in my opinion. 1/5 - awful.

Considered by the time it was made it's pretty remarkable. Almost all of the entries are replaced. Cartoony and many times flawfilled tough, yet a really large effort of making something new. One of the most under-rated wads of all time. 5 -Nmn

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
