What a load of crock.

On topic, yeah, I think it'd be better if these four enemy types, redone or not, were restricted to cyberspace levels.

In fact cyberspace levels probably ought to have a totally separate bestiary from meatspace levels. Enemies with, for instance, their own ZDoom blood decals because splattered gore doesn't fit right with the Tron-like aesthetics of cyberspace. (The walls should all disallow decals too I guess.)

This largely depends on whether we can find an artist to produce said bestiary. There's already 2 planned new enemies and the final boss which need to get done as well, not to mention improvements to the existing sprites. While "virtualized" versions of the original enemies could work and be simply produced, it seems like a cop-out solution that wouldn't really add much. But yeah, the ICE, D-Man and Majong 7 are intended to be Cyberspace-only enemies, whereas the meatspace-intended Thorn Thing just needs better graphics so it doesn't look like an abstract blob. :P

Preventing decals on C-Space walls is actually a really good idea, though. Never thought of that.

Just updated the links on the first post. Dunno why I never got around to it -- I even had the .zip on my webspace already and everything.

Either that, or have decals that simulate damage being done to walls in a digital realm. Wish I could find some pics of something like Tron or maybe Johnny Mnemonic that shows this.

The latter could work if you had some sort of scripting in place to give "digital" weapons in cyberspace levels.

Which would be awesome.

I am all for making the cyberspace levels completely unique and unconnected from the rest of the levels.

Made sure that everything in this mod are not sprite swaps (like redoeing the enemies so they would be actual original sprites rather than sprite swaps of the Doom II enemies)?

Apologies for the bump, but I would like to ask for clarification on the current state of Hacx 2.0. I was eagerly awaiting the completed thing for a while, and woe be me to find out that the entire game development team has been silent for nearly two years. I've checked the official website as well as the development forums in vain hope that something would be updated. The last build of the game was r61 and that was released back in 2012, and the last thing I saw in the discussion of the remake of Garden of Delights was talking about the intro level of Shadow Warrior 2013. No one has said anything, and no one on the DRD forums has asked anything so I would like to ask a simple question. Is Hacx 2.0. dead?

Now now... there is no timetable for them to finish 2.0; they can take as long as they want to.
