  1. Hooray for your official Episode 1 release! I've played this WAD since it was only at Map03 made, and have enjoyed almost every update to it. Currently enjoying the new changes with 2 thumbs up. Feels extremely polished now.

    . It also governs use of Non-profit use of commercial products, aka perfectly applicable to Diablo 3 content in question here. Everything is credited as accurate currently as stated in previous and No Diablo or Diablo 3 content or A.Gamma Diablo 3 Fair Use of Diablo 3 content is used in this gameplay mod.

    Heretic Heroes[Doom,Heretic,LZD/GZD]

    I have a staunch track record of crediting on my projects. The mod is updated with no reference to Diablo anywhere, and no credits are accorded to works derived from the questionable HUD material derived from Diablo 3 material. That's pretty much the end of this whole subject.

    Heretic Heroes[Doom,Heretic,LZD/GZD]

    Just some followup info because I literally have nothing to hide here. https://forum.zdoom.org/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=72677&p=1193526#p1193526 This mod has made another person cringe with many issues at ZDoom with basically the same type of responses. This is an educational piece with enough History and Original Coding included that this is every thing I say it is: Obviously Parody aka Myth of Hilda difficulty, Nothing but straight randomizers everywhere and Educational because it does stuff you wont find anywhere else, as well as using multiple different game mechanics supplied directly by ZDoom engine. " If you don't like the aesthetic then big whoop. Go play the other mods listed that were pieces into the building of this and you'll see exactly how much of this is custom coding----- Most of it is edited by my in one piece or another and quite drastically in many cases. My version of the Vampire Monster is all my coding. In both the Boss form and his normal Monster version. He fights nothing like the Realm 667 version. Ghastsoul was made by me. The Golem death spawning the Ghastsoul was my idea. Fallen Hero was ,my coding Every Weapon redo is my coding. Every Boss that is has been edited from it's original form from Realm 667 is my own coding Every monster that has been edited from it's original form is my coding like the 3 different versions of the Trash Monster. The Adaptation of the Succubus as the Fairy item = my coding Most of the Boss monsters EXCEPT Thor are direct rebuilds. Thor was too cool to screw with, and Azazel got recolored and actually weaker than his original code. You will not find a single exact copy out there of these monster tactics or coding except in my own mods." ------ Shrug

    Heretic Heroes[Doom,Heretic,LZD/GZD]

    Usually here at Doomworld I give a small commentary on the mod, but I'll just do that here. (I decided to put this reply also in the main post so anybody else reading this can skip it) This mod is almost 1 year old now. Its actually changed very little except in some minor editing, and has minor fork also listed above as the More Brutal Version. The More Brutal Version Heretic only uses Lagi's Mellow Heretic monsters ( his words abridged: "You shall use this mod-eg Mellow Heretic-- in any project you want or suffer bad joojoo") as the better Heretic Monsters. Heretic Heroes, the main mod, is a Total Gameplay mod itself, and has final formed it's final fusion of Two files of the same mod for different games and into ONE mod to rule them all. This mod is not meant to be ground breaking, but it is in fact my most complex project I have ever constructed. It's a calling card to Angry Video Game Nerd style of infuriation and randomness of the old NES monsters from RPGs and Platformers and Adventure.. To that end, Heretic Heroes is a Homage to those old games brought a few of those old NES stars and some other choice Heroes to life inside of Doom Engine via Heretic and Doom. To facilitate the aggravation nostalgia of those old games.... Everything is randomized predominantly across the board. Vanilla Difficulty is the Vanilla game monsters of Doom or HEretic respectively, but the next 2 of Myth of Hilda and Ultima Hexodus are random. THe Final 2 Difficulties are not randomized monsters, but ones chosen by me to represent a certain feel of two very fitting homages. This mod plays by it's own rules, and each Character can only equip certain weapons pertaining to their gameplay style...in a world where all treasure is random. This mod is full of unintentioned but kept "Bethesda Features" such as : Treasure chests and barrels popping out of treasure chests being the most common one which further increases the chances of more loot. All loot is ammo, weapons, powerups, items, and much more. This Mod uses Heretic Item system extensively, and Castlevania (ported and modified) style subweapons that do different attacks per Champion who uses( some identical). Its best to keep the README file handy mainly for the Character and minor Weapons break down so you don't accidentally miss out on a super weapon or some such. The weapons list is quite small honestly, this is not an RPG, but the Character equipment limitations make checking them very important. The main Action buttons are RELOAD, Mainfire, Altfire, and JUMP. And there is only 3 ammo types. Some weapons dont even use ammo( mainly Starter weapons). ALL CHARACTERS RUN AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS AND HAVE DIFFERENT JUMP AND GRAVITY based on their games of origin. Other than that, due to the type of gameplay this mod represents you might just become another old fashioned Angry Retro Gamer Nerd, and I won't even feel bad if it's not many people's style at all.

Download (same file works on Both Doom1&2 and Heretic Iwads): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cFbTFSuPz87ffQXFTujesLkzED5xHsp7/view?usp=sharing Demo Video (Older but the game play is still similar with a few better edits here and there in the New version) READMe File TXT -------------------------------------------------------------- Unzip and load the the Pk3 with any vanilla Heretic or Doom map wad. Also works with Blasphemer.wad and FreeDoom. This is a gameplay mod that Transforms Heretic and Doom( Heretic is better adaptation) into more Fantasy Adventure game where Weapons and Items are completely randomized. The kicker is you get Limit Removing characters from NES Titles who have matching Physics and play styles to their original games. THis is meant to be a fun and challenge mod at the same time. I hope you enjoy this off the wall idea.---- No relation or even inspiration from Combined Arms. This mod is home grown inspired creation. Changelog--- ---$5/1/22--- Changed out monsters for Mellow Heretic Monsters by LAGI. Gives a much nicer game style. Changed small details for better fits. 6/30/21--- Official Release MAIN INFO SECTION Advanced engine needed : GZDOOM/LZDoom Primary purpose : SinglePlayer =========================================================================== Title : Heretic Heroes: NES Heroes and Hexes Author : Kalensar Other Files By Author : Castlevania 3 for Simon's Destiny; LTTD:Link to the Doom and LTTD for Heretic; Doom THOHT ; Perfect Dark Brutal Doom Misc. Author Info : Rabid Editor Description : TC Monsters and Weapons pack for Heretic Heretic Heroes: NES Heroes and Hexes =========================================================================== Heretic Heroes is a gameplay mod meant to recapture the difficulty and fun of adventure and movement from old NES fantasy adventure games. Heretic Heroes is a heavily randomized event full of adventure from some destructable scenery to the randomness of RNG being cruel on weapons and items drops, or even super fruitful. There are 11 heroes from various games and each was designed to roughly match their physics of those games if they were from a Platformer, or some of the humorous growth if from a RPG. Some Characters start off way better than others in order to capture the essence of the games they came from. Without further adieu, here is the cast. In order from menu: 1. Kuros: from Wizards and Warriors 2. Arthur of Ghosts and Goblins 3. Ava Tar from the Ultima Series 4. Conan the Barbarian 5. Erdrick from Dragon Quest 6. Hydlide 7. Zelda... yeah its Link but this is for humor too. 8. Sylpha the Elven heretic, genderbend Corvus 9, Imm Ortal- The nameless wizrd from THe Immortal 10. Dova Keen - Yes, its the Lizard Hunter 11. Simon - the Questor.. The Simon's Quest version AUTHOR NOTE: --- My Advice: This mod has a custom difficulty settings. It is HARD from Myth of Hilda on up even to me as it's creator. If you want the most balanced experience then start as anyone other than Imm Ortal because he starts with no Mana, a spell book and weak Fists.. Enable Jumping and Crouching. Break every Candle , Barrel and Chest odd you come across because they are the source of weapons. All Starter Weapon except Conan and Imm Ortal have Subweapons bound to Reload THis game uses a Custom made HUD that has been tailored to Heretic Heroes. Set a Chasecam Button: I've tried my best to make this fun as a Third Person game as well!!! Yes really! Everybody has minor transparency so you can see where you shoot or hit. ///////////////////////////////////////////////// MAIN GAMEPLAY INFO /////////////////////////////////////////////// STARTER INFO: --Every Character has a SKILL bound to the Altfire or Reload reload key!!! I bind reload key to Shift. Every character has mostly unique abilities on the Castlevania styled Subweapons. Subweapons and Skills can only be used on the Starter Weapon of each character or some special Ultimate Weapons. --Not every character can use every weapon, BUT they can get the ammo from them. --All Weapons only use two types of Ammo and only give White Mana when picked up. Red Mana is generally the stronger attack on the weapon. The Trident is Unique in that it uses Health as its ammo, but also does Life Leech with its main fire. --Subweapons all run off of Hearts at one per cost. Each Character generally has a unique version of each Subweapon type and only One subweapon can be held at a time. -- This game uses HEXEN classes on the Characters, and comes complete with the Armor items for them. This game also uses Heretic/Doom styled armor too. The Blue gauge on the right side of the HUD displays all of the Armor info listed from top to bottom: Armor Amount, Armor Class, Armor Absorb value. You can frquently hit over 100% absorb and then all damage goes to Armor Amount. -- This game uses Heretic Inventory so many items are available and unique. No tomes of power as those are replaced by a super item: Ethereal Armor. Set your controls accordingly. CHARACTERS! Kuros-- Fighter class: He has one of, if not the Highest Jump stat. His movement is slippery, but manageable like his NES version. He moves pretty fast. Features a unlimited ammo throwing axe as his Altfire on his starting Iron Sword, the Axe of Igor. He's strong, solid and has good equipment options. Player.WeaponSlot 1, Axe Player.WeaponSlot 2, Ironsword, Mastersword Player.WeaponSlot 3, Crossbow Player.WeaponSlot 4, Hammer Player.WeaponSlot 5, wand Arthur- Fighter Class: This guy.... has the lowest health starting at 25, maxes at 50 BUT can go to higher with Item use. Excellent damage output, high jump, but squat all for equipment outside of Subweapons. I was nice enough to make his Main Fire auto-fire so your finger doesn't die. Player.WeaponSlot 2, hammer2, Axe : The Axe is a superweapon. Ava Tar: Cleric Class: This guy is pretty ridiculous at start. Reflecting shield( all shields do this from the front), awesome altfire, strong melee, non finicky movement. Great one if you want to start with someone easier than say Arthur. Player.WeaponSlot 2, HexMace,Axe Player.WeaponSlot 3, WensternShotgun Player.WeaponSlot 4, ImpalerXBow Player.WeaponSlot 5, Hammer Conan- Fighter class: Conan gets the most weapon choices, but has the worst start with only a weak fist attack. Good Speed, good jump. Player.WeaponSlot 1, Trident,Ax Player.WeaponSlot 2, konk,Legend Player.WeaponSlot 3, Crossbow Player.WeaponSlot 4, ImpalerXBow Player.WeaponSlot 5, Hammer Player.WeaponSlot 6, wand Player.WeaponSlot 7, GauntletX Erdrick- Mage Class: To be fair, he not much of a Mage, and has that to represent his start in DQ1. He starts with a mean fist attack. Average movement and balanced weapons. Player.WeaponSlot 1, Mastersword Player.WeaponSlot 2, HexFist Player.WeaponSlot 3, Crossbow Player.WeaponSlot 4, Hammer Player.WeaponSlot 5, wand Hydlide- Cleric Class: This guy starts out super strong with a Super Weapon sword. Decent movement, but low equipment option and is Melee based to mirror the goofy combat of that ancient RPG. Player.WeaponSlot 1, Trident Player.WeaponSlot 2, Legend, MasterSword Player.WeaponSlot 3, CrossbowM Link: Mage Class: His movement is like Adventure of Link and his weapons are like Zelda1. Low armor class at start, but he is one of the fastest and highest jumping dudes. His Bow is unlimited, but low Rail style damage on his Main fire, altfire is his sword. He also starts with Bombs which use Red Mana. His shield will deflect projectiles. Player.WeaponSlot 1, Mastersword Player.WeaponSlot 2, Bow Player.WeaponSlot 3, Wand Player.WeaponSlot 4, FragGrenade Corvina- Mage Class : The genderbend Corvus that uses roughly eqivalent weaponry. Vanilla style movement, and higher jump than vanilla. Starting Wand is unlimited ammo, and same for the altfire. Player.WeaponSlot 1, GauntletX Player.WeaponSlot 2, FireWand Player.WeaponSlot 3, Crossbow Player.WeaponSlot 4, wand Player.WeaponSlot 5, Hammer The Wizard -THe ImmOrtal: Mage Class: This guy does start with a really good weapon, the Spell Book, BUT zero Mana. So he uses his Fist, aka Konk. He has the worst jump and the 2nd lowest speed. BUT he does have normal Health unlike Arthur. Player.WeaponSlot 1, konk Player.WeaponSlot 2, Tome Player.WeaponSlot 3, CrossbowM Player.WeaponSlot 4, wand Player.WeaponSlot 5, GauntletX Dova Keen: Fighter Class: This guy is HUGE in size so he will look down at most enemies. His start sword swings in a wide arc, and the altfire is a Flame Breath that will push enemies back. Very fast on his feet, but jump is average. Player.WeaponSlot 1, Ax Player.WeaponSlot 2, sword1 Player.WeaponSlot 3, Trident Player.WeaponSlot 4, ImpalerXBow Player.WeaponSlot 5, FragGrenade Simon- Fighter Class: This is Simon's Quest Simon Whip will BLOCK or Reflect most projectiles. Timed for the end of the swing. Bad News: LOWEST SPEED, but decent jump. I tried really hard to get his movement accurate, including gravity. Good news, very strong. Altfire is Subweapon use. Bad news: Low equipment options. Player.WeaponSlot 1,Trident Player.WeaponSlot 2, VampireKiller Player.WeaponSlot 3, WensternShotgun /////////////////////////////////////////////////////// WEAPONS ////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Weapons to be found: All of these weapons can be found via Large Chests, CANDLES and torches Two Categories: Normal Weapons and Super Weapons.IF weapons give ammo then they only give White Mana. Not all weapons use ammo. Main fire is always White Mana if used at all. Alt Fire is Red mana. usually. Elemental damage is aesthetic only. Normal Weapons.
