WoC Version: 1.6C
This mod is exactly what it sounds like. I like the extra features and difficulty of Wrath of Cronos, but heXercise has always been one of my favorite mods, even if it makes the game easier. So, I took the time to splice heXercise's weapons into Wrath of Cronos, and rebalance them. I like documenting my own work, even if it's trivial, so I figured, why not throw it up on the ZDoom forum since I already have a changelog.
The changelog can be found here at my Pastebin. It will update anytime I update the PK3.
I would like to thank both Lloyd and Thetis for making the best mods for Hexen on the market today. I take no credit for anything in this PK3 or even my own work to put it together, because it was so simple Well I guess shit has gotten crazier faster than I thought it would so yeah, I take credit for the additional changes in this PK3. More credits to come if I end up using other peoples' assets.
Thanks to Crudux Cruo for his Fighter uppercut sprites.
First, if you have never played HeXercise, I advise you to go to Lloyd's thread here and read up on the weapon changes, and perhaps even play the mod yourself.
Next, if you have never played Wrath of Cronos, then I advise you to go to Thetis's thread here and read up on everything EXCEPT the changes to the vanilla Hexen weapons.
That is the basic overview of what's in this PK3. This PK3 behaves like Wrath of Cronos; there is a main PK3 (woc16c_hexercise) and several patches, which should be applied as relevant to which IWAD you are playing. (Not Hexen for every non-Hexen IWAD, plus Doom for Doom and Heretic for Heretic)
What follows is the detailed changes and rebalancing, which can also be found on the changelog pastebin:
Spoiler:These changes are my initial release of the mod, and while I haven't changed any of the fundamental mechanics of the weapons (yet), check the changelog for any tweaks I've made.
Sorry for the stuttering. That's only in the video; I'd probably kill myself if I had to play the game like that. I don't usually record myself playing games.

WoC 1.6C + HeXercise, v1.032
Why did you make this?
For myself to enjoy.
Will you add/change/remove XYZ?
If you want to leave suggestions, I will consider it, but I made this mod for myself, so if I don't like your suggestion for any reason, I won't care. Feel free to try to convince me, though.
When will you release the next version?
I don't really plan on releasing new versions unless I find something that I missed, or discover some behavior in the mod that irks me. I will update this mod when WoC updates, assuming that I want to play the latest version of WoC with my mod. If you find any bugs, please post them here and I'll fix them. Otherwise, don't hold your breath for a new version with new content, or something. This is a low-commitment project.
