    Heretic 2 - Source code recreation part 2

    Thanks icecoldduke... by the way... Googling around a bit I came across this and thought it was pretty cool... "Heretic2 Setup v1.07" (Heretic II Enhancement Pack v1.07) the "Unofficial patch for Heretic II that adds widescreen support and "Music" using "OGG Files (.ogg)". It might not be as good as Heretic 2 Source code recreation part2, but it makes textures look almost as good as "HD" textures. It uses the "Heretic II Enhancement Pack v1.07" with pre-set "Video settings" at renderer "software) setting, like the "Source code recreation" does... but, this uses Direct sound with the "Music" folder using "OGG Files (.ogg)" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpSAVE8e70k

    Heretic 2 - Source code recreation part 2

    Nothing has been entered in his repository for Heretic 2 - Source code recreation part 2 for months now. Did he give up on it? I have got the foundation on its feet, just a few big things are left: 3rd person camera has to be re-created. Player pmove needs to be re-written based on the hex rays output of the original Quake2.dll. Client effects need to be hooked up the network replication. Minor things like obituary notifications and such. Some server side support functions.
  5. Heretic II PCWin version: (New) Heretic II game (French or English version) for all Windows versions) with automated installation. This is a very impressive all Windows Version of Heretic II that comes pre-installed with "Heretic II Enhancement Pack v1.07", a game launcher with H2Resolution incorporated into it, as well as having Direct sound with the "Music" folder using "OGG Files (.ogg)" for music, and a safemode and windowmode settings, etc... Original game version download Website is hosted by (Les jeux d'Abandonware France). https://www.abandonware-france.org/ltf_abandon/ltf_jeu.php?id=3069&fic=liens (Game with automated installation, for Windows). title: setup-03069-Heretic_2-PCWin size: 343 MB (*Note: Remember you need to unblock the zip file in properties before installing). download link: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AlnA6Q7Qr0oyyXsbmAtJPPGXlCIU?e=qr9H1E Installation: Right click the file go to properties and at the bottom click unblock for each zip/file and save file and then install the game. The game path for installation is chosen automatically and installed to (C:\Jeux\ABWFR\HereticII). It creates a (C:\Jeux\ABWFR\HereticII\LTFGameLauncher.exe) on your desktop for easy startup named "Heretic II". It also has the "H2Resolution" incorporated into the launcher at the bottom/center for easy access and the information is saved in the "LTFGameLauncher.exe" config file. *Note: The game is pre-set for ultra violent (level 3) settings. *Note: The Game and Launcher is in the French language. I provided an English version of the Launcher which goes into your Heretic2 folder, as well as the English versions of "(menus.cfg, Gamemsg.txt, levelmsg.txt)" which go into your Heretic2/base folder. They are your English game translation files". Just unzip and replace the original French version with these. =========== *Note: In order to use h2Resolution I believe you need to use the renderer "software" at (640x480) settings in order for it to work properly. *Note: About H2Resolution. If your monitor/screen size is larger than "1920x1200" then in order to cover your screen you need to input half your original screen size of your Monitor into the "H2Resolution" box. Example: My monitor is "2560/1440" which H2Resolution will not input anything over "1920x1200" correctly. In order for it to cover my Monitor/Screen I had to input half my monitor size "1280x720" to get it to work full screen. =========== The game is pre-installed with the "Heretic II Enhancement Pack v1.07". The Unofficial patch for Heretic II that adds widescreen support and restores 60 FPS support. *Note: The game runs fine as is without making any changes other than removing the old sound drivers from the Heretic2 directory as listed below so the game defaults to "Direct Sound" like it is supposed too originally in this install. ================= "Heretic II PCWin version" Update information: "Heretic II PCWin version" update fix: (If you have any of these problems this should fix those issues). (*Note: Remember you need to unblock the zip file in properties before using). Contains files that Fixes a problem with "Heretic II PCWin version". Heretic II Game/Menu/Help Menu (F1) button and the "Game Menu" using "h2Resolution" to alignment the "Menu" correctly. *Note: It also creates "user.cfg" in your "HereticII\user\user.cfg" folder the next time you start the Heretic II game. (which is missing and not created) when playing original "Heretic II PCWin version". download link: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AlnA6Q7Qr0oyyg-eqLy9FkRbQ6z-?e=ghGSV7 *Note: This update changes the "French language" version "(menus.cfg, Gamemsg.txt, levelmsg.txt)" which go into your Heretic2/base folder to English language. If you wish to keep the "French language game translation files" then you need to backup these three files first (menus.cfg, Gamemsg.txt, levelmsg.txt) and then copy/paste them back into "Heretic2/base" folder after applying this fix. ================= *Note: The "Music" folder uses "OGG Files (.ogg)" for music. The game would crash at times, but by removing these sound drivers listed below from the Heretic II folder the game will use directX sound only. Try Moving these sound "dll's" listed below into another folder you create named "sound dlls backup" or something and then set your sound settings to use "sound system default sound. Then save.cfg It should stay on that setting the next time you start Heretic II with sound working just fine using "DirectSound" initializiation (Microsoft DirectX) instead those other old sound "dll's" which have a tendency to crash the game. *Note: sound drivers that you should be removed from Heretic2 directory: a3dapi.dll A3DSnd.dll EAXSnd.dll *Note: The default rate is set for 25000, and the cl_maxfps 30, You might want to change that to set cl_maxfps 60, and set cl_yawspeed 300, but it is not necessary for playing the game. *Note: Also, Normally - Player/clients need to allow Heretic II through the Windows firewall and set "Heretic II" compatibility settings to Windows XP service pack 2 /16bit and then restart computer to take effect to play so you might need to do this if you are having problems playing. (But, in this case I did not need to do that). Sport

    Heretic 2 - Source code recreation part 2

    Hey icecoldduke is there anyway you can fix the Heretic2 toolkit HereticEd so we can build maps with Windows 10? The batch only works on WindowsXP/Vista. Probably why no one has been making many maps for Heretic II.

    Heretic 2 - Source code recreation part 2

    Maybe icecoldduke can incorporate what he needs from KMQuake2. Like Multiplayer, savegames, etc...It might be worth it to look at the code he has for it. KMQuake2 website: http://www.markshan.com/knightmare/

    Heretic 2 - Source code recreation part 2

    Great news! Hopefully "it will also read/write/load savegames so it works this time around I am just a mapper not a programmer and envy you guys. But I was wondering why no ever tried doing this with a modified Quake2 such as "KMQuake2". It already has all these features below incorporated into it and provides the source code for it as well. 5/06/20 KMQuake2 0.20 Besides lots of bug fixes, this update will also include the following changes from the development branch: Added support for triple-monitor surround modes via custom resolutions. Added Windows DPI scaling detection from Yamagi Quake2. Added 3840x1600 and 4096x2160 video modes. Added support for 160Hz and 240Hz refresh rates. Added cel shading. Shadow volumes will now be drawn even if the model isn't in view. Added font upscaling (with optional blending by Skuller from Q2Pro) for old 128x128 fonts. Added adjustable horizontal offset to third-person mode. Added support for quake2:// URLs. Added UDP fallback from HTTP downloads and support for Q2Pro-style HTTP URLs. Now reads/writes savegames, config files, demos, etc. to the user profile Saved Games folder, and auto-downloaded files are now written to to the user profile Downloads folder. This eliminates the need to run the game in Administrator mode when file permissions issues are present. Now compresses .sav and .sv2 savegame files into .savz files. Added basegame3 cvar to load data from up to 3 other other mods. Works in conjunction with basegame and basegame2, which must be set first. Screenshots now go up to 9999. Instead of contacting me to get access to private pre-release builds, I've set up a Bitbucket repo with nightly test builds of this latest update. The full source code is also viewable. Please email me with any bugs you may find. https://bitbucket.org/Knightmare66/kmquake2_stable/downloads/ ------------------------------ Key Features ------------------------------ - Eliminates the limit of 256 each on models, sounds, and images- no more index: overflow errors! - No more SZ_Getspace: overflow errors - Supports up to 8000 entities per map, up to 2000 in view at once - Supports maps with large coordinate ranges, maximum of +/-16384 - Supports maps compiled with large chop values, up to 1024 - Supports server-side player speed control for class-based mods, etc. - Supports server-side control of entity transparency - Supports server-side control of looped sound attenuation - Includes default Lazarus DLL with ACE bots, CTF and 3Team CTF support - Uses modified Quake2maX particle effects - Improved menus and console (uses some code from Quake2maX) - Streamlined, more memory-efficent adaptation of decal system from Quake2maX - TGA, PNG, and JPG texture, skin, and pic autoloading - Autoscaling of hi-res replacement textures - Support for MD3 models - *.pak and pk3 support - Ogg Vorbis soundtrack support - RoQ support - Alpha test surface support for easy rendering of textures with holes/cut-outs - Trans33 and Trans66 flag combining for textures with alpha-channel controlled transparency - Supports rendering transparent surfaces with lightmaps - Supports moving and animated transparent surfaces - Integrated support for Lazarus footstep sounds
  11. Damn! I am fustrated now and sadly recommend people not to use Portals until this gets fixed Actually it was a Windows 10 update that restarted my computer while I was away from it...
  12. "Heretic2Portals" download link: (2.31 GB) zipped https://drive.google.com/file/d/1niwPNlHrmEMpphLKbk0OSjZ5QAJfvn3I/view?usp=sharing Game crashed: Oh why is this happening to me... Smile!!! Apparently, the Original Portals Game does not like me very much... It defaults to 30fps, etc... I want cl_maxfps 60", etc... we had an argument... and the Portals game kicked me out. So, as I mentioned before. The first time you start the game it might crash. But, the second time you start the game it should be fine. I believe its the creation of a "config.cfg user.cfg and playing config issue. When you start the "Original Portals installation" the game creates a "Corvus.cfg, and a default "config.cfg and user.cfg". The default "Corvus.cfg, Config.cfg and User.cfg" created from the original install of the game is the problem. =========== "H2 Portals\portals\config" and "poruser": Is where we keep the "Portal Game Settings" Portal Game Settings: "H2 Portals\portals\config" and "poruser" Your "Corvus.cfg" playing config goes into "H2 Portals\portals\config" folder: If you have a working Heretic II/Base/Config/Corvus.cfg from a previous "Heretic II" game installation you could copy it here and then start the game and first load your config and save it so it stays in the game. If you have a working Heretic II/User/config.cfg and user.cfg" from a previous Heretic II game istallation you could copy it into the "H2 "Portals\poruser" folder and replace them as well. ============ *Special Note: What to do if the above solution does not work: First backup these two folders: "H2 Portals\portals\config: Is where your playing config "Corvus.cfg" is kept. "H2 -Portals\portals\config\Corvus.cfg" "H2 Portals\portals\config" and "poruser": Is where we keep the "Portal Game Settings" The games default "config.cfg and user.cfg" can be found in the H2 "Portals\poruser" Delete the default config.cfg Delete the default user/cfg *Note: this is where we keep the game settings so you are going to have to input/ add these yourself later: set rate 5000 set cl_maxfps 60 set cl_yawspeed 300 set cd_nocd 1 and restart the game and create a new default "Corvus.cfg, Config.cfg and User.cfg"... Sport
  13. "Heretic II Portals DM + Coop" is now working with Portals: We finally have a working Heretic II Portals "DM + Coop" Portals Servers. Deathmatch Maps and textures look as good as they do in Coop. *Note: How to play the "Heretic 2 graphics Mod" click on the (Heretic2Portals.exe) go to Multiplayer/Addressbook and click on a server you wish to join. There is a "Heretic II Portals Deathmatch" server and a "Heretic II Portals Coop" server, as well as the regular Heretic2.exe "DM Midnight <3Bot> Madness" server, etc... *Note: Use the "Heretic II.exe" which is also included in the zip for playing regular "deathmatch amd blades" servers. ----------- "Heretic 2 Contrast Adaptive Sharpening" looks and works just great for "DM and Coop". I have been testing it and finally got it working for hosting and playing on a "Dedicated PortalsCoop Server" and "Dedicated Portals-DM Server". The server has not crashed for me and saved games "Coop" server with Music work fine. Originally, I made (pak) files of the maps and textures, etc... for Portals instead of leaving those file folders in the base folder. That worked well... The map loaded fine from the pak, etc... except some of the textures file names were either too long or something and the pak would not accept some of them and some were missing from some maps. So to make a long story short I dropped the idea of using pak files for now. *Note: I have fixed and updated all the Heretic II base files. Apparently in my previous upload of "H2 Portals" zipped there were a few missing files (textures, models, maps, skins. etc... Sadly, it required me to redo this all over again. I used a "PathSync application" to analyze both game directories and fix the differences between both of the Heretic II game directories to insure there is nothing else missing in the process. I apologize for the inconvenience this creates. If you want a working Heretic II "Portals" Game it is going to require everyone to download the "Portals.zip again and re-install it to fix those issues. At least you get a working Portals "Deathmatch & Coop" when you do download this time. ====== Heretic II Addressbook Server IPs ====== set adr0 "24.193.226.132:25910" //Heretic II Portals Coop set adr1 "24.193.226.132:29910" //Heretic II Portals Deathmatch set adr2 "108.247.69.202:29910" //Lands of Parthoris set adr3 "97.93.159.212:28910" //MyDedServer DM set adr4 "67.149.145.30:28910" //Ye Olde Vanilla set adr5 "24.193.226.132:27910" //DM Midnight <3Bot> Madness "Heretic2Portals download link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1niwPNlHrmEMpphLKbk0OSjZ5QAJfvn3I/view?usp=sharing ------ Feedback... is what I need from people whom join the server.

  14. *Note: "Heretic II Portals Coop" is only for playing "Coop". Use the "Heretic II.exe" which is also included in the zip for playing "deathmatch amd blades" to play and join servers. "Heretic 2 Contrast Adaptive Sharpening" looks and works just great with "Coop". I have been testing and working on fixing it and hosting a "dedicated PortalsCoop Server" at "skill 3", rate 7000 for a while on my computer working out issues... and had no problems so I decided to finally to provide a link to the Heretic2 Portals Coop. The server has not crashed for me and saved games server sided and Music work just fine.... 🙂 *Note: I have a very fast Graphics Video card and computer. My only concern is that for other people rate 7000 might cause other people issues (stuttering) and if so then I just need to lower the server rate to 5000. Also, skill 3 is the highest so there are plenty of opponents and expect Clients/players to die more often... I could lower it to "skill 2". Feedback... is what I need from people who join the server. Note: Heretic2Portals Coop is visible now on "Qstat" as "Heretic II Portals Coop" (Portals Game).
  15. Note: I already created the Heretic2Portals Coop pre-installed and updated "user.cfg" in the "H2 Portals/poruser/user.cfg" directory for everyone with these settings inputed into the user.cfg so that it starts the game at those settings and keeps it that way automatically and the IP Address is already inputed just go to Menu/Multiplayer/ and click on the Heretic2Portals Coop and join. ============================ set rate 5000/7000 set cl_maxfps 60 set cl_yawspeed 300 set cd_nocd 1 ============================ I have been testing and hosting this as a "dedicated PortalsCoop Server" at "skill 3", rate 7000 for a while on my computer working out issues... and had no problems so I decided to finally provide a link to the Heretic2Portals Coop.
