@Trolodon

Um.. You just download the pk3 file fom the first post and drag it on the gzdoom.exe.
You dont need to extract the pk3 file.

You should be able to run the pk3 exactly as a wad. either 'gzdoom.exe -file hocusdoom.pk3' or dragging the file directly onto Gzdoom's exe icon will work.

Perhaps when you downloaded the pk3 file it got corrupted? Have you tried downloading it again? :)

It finally worked! In fact, I had not downloaded Doom II properly. Thanks for your answers.

The game is awesome! The graphics are wonderful, and faithful to the 2D Hocus Pocus...Great job!

Mp3 versions of music

  • added snow effects on maps map05 and map06
  • added options menu to disable or reduce excess weather particles
  • more reorganization of decorate scripts
  • added fog for some maps
  • removed +SOLID flag for icy rocks. God they were annoying.
  • added options to disable enemy health bars (or show numbers instead)
  • added map13

  • added secret weapon for a secret level
  • added GAMEINFO lump to change startup colors and title
  • added map15
