    HACX Released


    Linguica

    A bit over schedule, but whatever... Nostromo has posted The Official HACX Page which includes all sorts of info about this Doom 2 total conversion, screen shots, a "help wanted" page for possibly creating a full 32-level version and, most importantly, the full version of HACX available for download. That's right, if you haven't gotten HACX -- which was worked on by Fanatic, Adelusion, Looking Glass's Iikka Keranen, and id Software's Kenneth Scott, among others -- now is your chance.

    Hey, I'm a busy guy... You think I have the time to actually "play" games anymore? No. I need instant firepower, instant gratification... =]

    D'oh. Is there any way to install HACX without Doom ][ 1.9? I have source ports, but no original exe. I figured this would happen to me =-)

    Me too. Damn. Grrrrrr ... time to dig up that Doom2 CD from the back yard. In case I can't find it again, is there somebody that can help us? :)

    Linguica, there is no .deh file, the whole thing is hardcoded. I figured a relatively easy way to sidestep that, and I now know the cheats. <P>But I'm not going to tell anyone. Sorry, everyone, but I'm a relentless non-cheater.

    I downloaded it and played it last night, right after I posted my first message! :-D

    I think one of the best things about HACX is that there are no cheat codes!! I'm so used to not saving my games while playing, I wounded up being killed after about 20 minutes of playing level 1!! :( I guess I need to get that F6 key warmed up again.. :-b

    Anyone find it funny that the download page is called "Hack download page"? I'm re-downloading it now after it crapped out on me. So I fought back by downloading getright. Hopefully then I'll get a chance to give comments about Fanatic's map and HacX in general. BTW, the HacX cheats are on CD-rom com. If you look hard enough you will find them...along with the hidden 15 GIG pron dir. Try under ../Ty/private/the_good_stuff

    Youll lose interest using cheats anyways, itll all seem repetitive if you can dive into a horde of monsters every time you open a door. Sit back and enjoy the challenge instead of trying to cheat through it.

    I found skill 4 rather easy. I also found level 1 a little long. Should it take 33 minutes to finish level 1 on skill 4??

    Nevertheless, this is a great TC. Now people, this is what you call a Total Conversion!! Securitron? That was a joke of a "Total Conversion". How could they call it a "Total Conversion"?? I would call it a "Partial Conversion", but certainally not a "Total Conversion"!!

    Anyway, great job, guys!! ;D

    Just out of curiousity, why does HACX even require Doom 2 anymore? It's got its own IWAD... EXEs are distributable now...

    Yeah, but at least they aren't screaming the words "Total Conversion" or "TC!!" in your face like Securitron or Doom Ressurection, which claim to be total conversions, even though they have some original weapons, monsters, and textures from Doom 2. Not that they aren't something to look forward to, it's just that HACX is a little less in-your-face with the TC talk.. :-b

    Well, I downloaded the damn thing only to find out it wouldn't install because it refused to believe my doom2.exe is v1.9 (even though it says so on startup). So what else would you do with a game called HACX? I hacked the installer. And then, guess what! It installed and said my HACX.BIN file was corrupt. GRRRR. I'm going to download again (dammit all to hell) and see if I just got a bad version and maybe I don't even need the hack, but hey, I went to all the trouble. Maybe you guys can use it. Here ya go: Open install.exe in a hex editor. Search for: 7403E9D5FEE8 Change to: EB03E9D5FEE8 Don't forget to save!! The installer will still warn you if it can't find doom2.exe or if it detects the wrong version, but then it will install it anyway. Enjoy!

    The thing is, what if someone wants to develop a level using Hacx??? Huh? What then? I use cheat codes all the time when I make levels. It makes things much easier. That's what they are for really for anyway.

    I was just playing level 3. I'm on skill 4. Somehow, my health was at 336%. I picked up an orange sphere, which brought it down to 200%!! ???

    What's the deal with that??!! :-b

    Sounds like a source port's funky reaction... are you playing with the doom2.exe regular version?

    Share this comment


    Link to comment

    Yep, regular doom2.exe. Hey, I'm not complaining!! All I have to do is avoid the orange spheres, and my health is > 300%.. :D

    But gee, I'm on level 4, and so far this game has been eerily easy. Even on skill 4!! P.S.: Level 3 was awesome, Fanatic!! :) A bit short, but definitely an experience! :-b

    This game is great.. ;-O

    i've downloaded the file twice now on my slow-ass modem and it still won't install. Keeps saying i don't have Doom 2 v1.9. i've tried everything from copying my doom.exe from Ultimate Doom as doom2.exe, to reinstalling Doom 2 and verifying that it is indeed v1.9. It just refuses to install no matter what i do. Using the hack keeps telling me my .bin file is corrupt. What the fuck is up with this shit??

    I see that Hacx is in full swing. The download page has been hit almost 1600 times in 25 hours. I've posted some news concerning various things that have been discussed if you want to drop by the page and check it out. I'm also anxious to hear feedback on map 12 ...that's my baby. Best level I've ever made, me thinks, and I'm glad people finally have a chance to see it. Yes, Hacx is simple at first but, believe me, it gets tougher. Concerning installation problems, I'm going to create a package of just the files themselves so that rather than "installing" them, you can just unzip them into a doom directory or your choice and see if they run. If I can find John, I'll make the DEH files available as well ...but don't hold your breathe. As far as the cheat codes ...um ...I don't remember (snicker).

    Hi ! Think that's work fine ! All you need to do is: - install HACX into Doom2 1.9 dir - download "hacxport.wad" from ftp.cdrom.com..../themes/hacx - extract "dehacked.deh" with WinTEX out of "hacxport.wad" Then you launch it like this: glboom -iwad doom2.wad -deh dehacked.deh -file hacx.wad -hacxport.wad

    All you have to do is load up dhacx.exe in dehacked and save it to a deh file... No other downloads are necessary.
