  1. 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...
  2. "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"...

  3. "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.

  4. *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).
  5. 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.

  6. Oh, the only other reason I know of that saved games will not work is if you updated recently. Old save games made before the update will not be compatible and the game will crash.
  7. Sorry JimFlasch, I have no idea why Heretic2Portals crashes. Heretic II - As far as bugs go, it's hard to say what is the fault of the game, the fan-patch, Mod or the OS. However, I had a recurring problem where loading save games would cause a crash. Always back up your saves multiple times. I've found that temporarily switching to software rendering would mitigate this issue. There were some crashes that happened randomly in-game, and some bugs where the game would get soft-locked into 'cutscene mode' necessitating a restart. Saving while Corvus is on a moving platform is not advisable. Despite some close calls here and there, I managed to make my way through the entire game with little fuss. (This Mod is a work in progress) and the code is available if anyone wishes to improve the Mod.

  9. SAVING AND LOADING A GAME: Save and load games by using the Tome of Power or through the function keys. Press Esc to open the Tome of Power. Choose Main and select either Save Game or Load Game. To Load a game, select the game file you wish to load using the mouse or by highlighting it with the arrow keys. When you have the desired file highlighted, press ENTER to load that game. To Save a game in progress, select the game slot you wish to record your game in (saving in a used slot will overwrite previously recorded game information) using the mouse or by highlighting it with the arrow keys. Enter a name for your saved game and press ENTER. Press F6 at any time to quicksave your game into a special slot. Pressing F7 will automatically load your last quicksaved game. The quicksave slot may only hold one game at a time, so be sure that you wish to write over it before you press the key. Once you do, the old game information will be lost.
  10. Yeah, I noticed it did that for me when I went back to a saved game I made a three months ago, but I had no problem going back to a saved game I made a few days ago. I am not sure why that is having a problem. I can save games using the key "F5" to save games quickly or use "Menu/Game/save game". I can load save games using the "F6" key or "Menu/Game/load game" to load a save game. *Note: Saved games are in the H2 Portals/poruser/save folder.

To start the "Heretic 2 graphics mod" click on the (Heretic2Portals.exe). *Note: It is the "Quake2.dll" that has the (framerate in-game capped at "2800" and "maxfps 30"). The "win2kserverfix" fixes that after you type "set cl_maxfps 60" and "rate 5000" and then savecfg. *Note: Heretic II client settings: How to set "cl_maxfps 60" in "Heretic2 Portals" In order to "set cl_maxfps 60" and "set rate 7000" etc... and keep it at these settings you need to do the following: Create a "user.cfg" in this directory: H2 Portals/poruser/user.cfg and input those settings into the user.cfg so that it starts the game at those settings and keeps it that way. set cl_maxfps 60 set rate 7000 * Note: The "Heretic2CaS" might crash at times if you go through the Menu.

  14. Did you install it properly? This update has EAX Reverb enabled. Extract to your Heretic 1.06 directory. Must be a CLEAN install! To start the game, do NOT go through the menu(or you will crash). Instead type "map ssdocks" or load a save game. r_brightness controls the brightness with CaS on ONLY. r_fov controls the FOV. Contains OpenAL WndSnd.dll, Contrast Adaptive Sharpening, Widescreen and various fixes to run on Windows 10. MUSIC: If you want music, you need to convert the cd audio music to wav files and structure the files/directory like this. https://imgur.com/a/aDReZ0F Includes some buffer overflow fixes, see // jmarshall tags.
