No Strife++? :[[[[[[[[[[

Would like to playtest this again too.

I made some edits of my own to this mod and was wondering if I can contribute any of it to the next version.

It'd be interesting what you have done - I'm always up for criticism and changes.

Strife++ progress is slow mostly due to it suffering the same condition known as "3 year old code" - so I'm probably going to have to rewrite and modify strife++ too.

Still, I'd love to playtest this for you again! I can certainly do a better job this time around. (For example, not being worried about offending you for saying the projectile trails are awful. :P ) I bet I can find some new resource goodies for you, too.

Yep, 3 years ago I first released it. Now three years later I'm realising how terrible some of the ideas I put into Heretic++ are. I'd appreciate any help you can give, and any criticisms too! I'm much more receptive to criticism now than I was 3 years ago haha :P

Feel free to upgrade to the latest SVHeretic version. I am sure Heretic++ has a very ancient version of SVHeretic.

You're absolutely right, Heretic++ is using a very, very old version of SVHeretic. Thanks!

Okay, I've began the re-development, I'm hoping to remove a lot of the.. um.. content I pilfered from Kekesdose [sorry] and replace it with new, self-made content. So I guess my slogan for the Heretic++ redesign and recreation would be now with 99% less stolen content, eh?

I've also implemented a new options menu specifically to disable certain effects for performance or preference.

I know you asked for the content I changed, but I've been too busy with college lately to check the modified file for the changes and resources.

Although, this is soon to be alleviated due to this quarter being practically over (except finals) and the next quarter should leave me with more time.

I'll get you what I have as soon as I can.

This is really lovely!

Only problem on my end is that I really miss dynamic lights for projectiles and such. I would love to see them back in. Looked at the code myself but it's a little beyond my skill level to plug in all the right bits to get them working.

Seems I am having trouble download this. Keep getting ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED, even while using Google's DNS server.
Also, seems all the images are dead.

@dark-slayer-201: all the images were from the older version of Heretic++ which were on my old photobucket account which I deleted about two years ago. However, the link works for me? Perhaps Dropbox doesn't work for you for some strange reason.

@Alexandra: Dynamic lights will be back in the second edition of Heretic++, I was very lazy to re-add them for everything in the original versions of Heretic++. Lesson learned :P

drdteam fileservice is gone forever, I posted a new link a page or two ago.
