Karnak - Gameplay Mod for Heretic/Hexen/Deathkings

Recommended Posts

God damn, those enemies have so much personality. Great mythological theme (a lot of lions, snakes, female enemies, and plenty of bosses)

Thanks Cupboard! There's a few more in the Hexen mods (Leonids with guns, for example) but I haven't made a list for them yet. The Deathkings mod is separate due to the story being new and also the main villain, who fights you periodically throughout the game in little teaser battles.

 

I think I tested the first mod on a few of your maps, if I remember right, and they worked really well together.

Wow, this looks super cool. Hexen/DK has been on my list to replay for a couple years now, and this might be just the way to go.

Put together a list of wads that best mesh with Karnak besides the original iwads. Load up Karnak with any of these for a good time/challenge:

HERETIC
Call of the Apostate
Dark Deity's Bastion
Realm of Parthoris
Wayfarer
Masters of Chaos (music fix)

HEXEN
Vaults
Shannara
Vicerus (music fix)
Wolfen

 


EDIT: Added a music fix patch for Vicerus and MoC so i don't have to mess with the original wads. Just add the respective patch to the end of the wad loading queue for the proper Karnak music if you want.

Somewhat minor update, but a much needed update nonetheless.

 

- Tripod Cannon has a new graphic that makes it look a little bit more space-age.

- Hexen/Deathkings chessboard sequence has appropriate graphics for the new heroes now.

Very nice!  I always liked the story and gameplay of Powerslave and your mod brings back pleasant memories. 

I take my hat off to you and your helpful crew. It's also nice you've included sort of a pdf manual, which you don't see quite often.

I haven‘t seen this before. This looks awesome.

Its been around for some time now, but it's been really hard to get people to try it out for some reason. You'd think they'd want an excuse to break out Heretic and Hexen wads again.

Another update: fixed up the Crimson Witches' attacks. In Hexen/Deathkings they fire a few Bishop projectiles, and in all three mods their arballista shots are half speed.

 

Also lengthened the Leonid's stun state so automatic weapons pin them down better.

You know I downloaded this a month back but didn't try it until you mentioned the last update, and man I was missing out! This is awesome, whole new set of weapons AND monsters. Really love the Leonids, they are so vicious! Another great mod Impie, can't wait to see what the new bosses are like:)
