Hexen, teleporting to another map

Postby Blackgrowl » Sun Oct 06, 2019 9:51 am

Hi, I made this mistake where I didn't get to the first hub level's secret level, yet I did get to the second hub's secret level.
I've seen a walkthrough mentioning how you can't access the 3rd secret if you haven't done both of these two, so yeah...

I was thinking "changemap" would do but all it does is keep the items, meanwhile all my progress is gone, so it's for nothing.

Is there some cheat command or the like that makes me "Teleport" to that map while keeping all the current progress in every hub and the like?

No. Since the map is in another hub you'll lose all progress when teleporting there from the second hub - which is essentially what 'changemap' does.

There's an easier solution to get to the third secret map, though. When you enter the map with the hidden exit (the Forsaken Outpost) type 'puke 8' at the console, that will simulate the action you will trigger on the first secret map. But ultimately there's nothing special to be found on the map - it's yet another slightly annoying puzzle map without any big reward at the end.

If you do not want to cheat you could also play it separately afterward. Like I said, nothing you'll do there will affect the game either negatively or positively.

This should help, I must try it, thanks.

On another note, what is the "puke" command? A short, console variant command of this command?; https://zdoom.org/wiki/RequestScriptPuke

The "puke" command executes a script from the console - the full function would be "puke [script_number]". There's also "pukename", which is the equivalent of "puke" for named scripts.

And for historical context, the name comes from the original Hexen cheat code to start a script, that's why it's such a weird name.
