It's not a must, but I'd be surprised if you actually used all of Hexen's 11 keys and 17 puzzle items. Hoping to have another encounter with Zedek, Traductus & Menelkir :P

We've used quite a few of the keys and puzzle pieces so far - a few clock gears, a few gems, something like 10 keys, and a flame mask!

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised on the encounter side...

On a side note, if the maps have respawn scripts, please make them use number 255 like the base game. That way the minimod I use to supress the respawning mechanic is compatible without further tinkering, making it optional. I can send a link to it if anyone else is interested. Last but not least, do you mind if someone gives XUMP a spin with High Noon Drifter, Factotum or other gameplay mods with Hexen support once it's released? :)

do you mean RESPAWN scripts as in those that would be used in a multiplayer game?
I think one of the maps has a RESPAWN script that pretty much does the same thing as the ENTER script for that map, but apart from that there aren't any I'm aware of.

You're welcome to use the project with any mods you like, it should hopefully work ok. There are a few minimal DECORATE decorations and edits but shouldn't be anything mod-breaking :)

Its mostly a bunch of very small fixes to various maps, weapon placement for co-op, some balancing tweaks here and there.

That reminds me, is the final boss arena supposed to suddenly become flooded with monsters after killing Korax?

I meant that in the base game there were Repopulation Scripts in Slot 255 that spawned different monsters (mostly Ettins) on specific spawnspots every 4 minutes, making Hexen feel like Doom on Nightmare difficulty as you weren't able to accumulate 100% kills. I got a minimod that disables every Script 255 just for that purpose. And speaking of which, it seems you did the same on the Garden of Torture if I'm not mistaken, but it's not a big deal :P

Korax has a script he runs when he is very low health that can summon more monsters, but it shouldn't happen upon death.

DabbingSquidward - Ah I see what you mean. MAP02 has 2 different scripts for monster spawning, starting with ettins and eventually adding in green demons as more maps are unlocked. These could be made to be script 255, but at this stage they're separated out. You can disable Script 34 and 35 if you want to disable the monster spawners.

Ah, I must have killed him too quickly because when I killed him the whole place was flooded with monsters.

Did you died? or were you able to complete it?
