If I had to guess, there are probably way too many actors on this level and their numbers will have to be drastically reduced for the map to be playable. It reminds me the way Nashgore-based mods behave when hundreds of monsters are crushed at once.

Pretty much. I'm not happy with map06. I never was really, but I didn't know what to do with it. I may end up scrapping and remaking it. I may make the whole map smaller as it takes almost 13 minutes to complete. That's a lot of time for a hocus map :P

I really like how utterly different it is from regular Doom, it's clearly a TC's TC and not Doom with a new skin on. I must say though, that the first fight in the first level is cruel for the very beginning of a TC with radically different mechanics from Doom. You're trying to figure out the basics of shooting while fending off a large number of monsters in tight quarters.

This is not Hocus Pocus Doom, This is the real HOCUS POCUS 3D, the sequel/remake of the original. It's the best work since the sequel of Duke Nukem 2: Duke 3D!!! You made the perfect mod! I love it!!

Still active! Working on textures for episode 2, but work is a bit slow.

Possibly, but I'd have bumped it eventually when I had more content to release.

This thread isn't in off-topic, so it doesn't need to be saved: it won't get automatically pruned if it gets too old.

Still nice to hear that there's some progress on this little project.

Happy 2015! I apologize for such a delay, but life tends to do that (not to mention a distinct lack of motivation). However, I haven't been totally sleeping on the job!

Current playable demo for 01-24-2015
Mp3 versions of music

  • Completely redid map06. No longer lags and flows much better.
  • added map07
  • started map08 (Not finished)
  • started map09 (Not finished)
  • added map10
  • added map11 (episode 2)
  • added sprites and mechanics for hocus player. (jumping animation works too!)
  • changed projectiles for Power Wand again. The blue and Red just didn't feel right.
  • Fixed floor check for the jump potion particles. Should work now. (a bit goofy if you hit a ceiling)
  • New weapon sprites to match the toony look.
  • Made Monsters return to their original position when they despawn
  • Reverted monster returning because it doesn't work yet.
  • added some E2 enemies (blackbeast, mummy, bat)
  • added some E3 enemies (secret enemies)
  • added A_SentinelBob to flying monsters to see how they work (works nicely)
  • added sound variants for power/rapid fire weapons
  • added some secret stuff
  • added textures and decorations for Egypt and Night 2 sets
  • Reworked how bosses work. They should despawn and reset the boss health bar scripts fine now.

Screenshots:

As always, let me know what you think and if you find any bugs or broken things.
