Still no marine adaptation/classes available? Would be great to see them after all.


In the main pk3 file woc_v3a.pk3 there is a "TODO.txt" mentioning something about a Druid class coming out in the future. Pretty excited about that if it becomes a thing. Allows you to "phase-shift" into different animals, one being a wolf, another being a bear. No mentions of a marine, no. Speaking of Doom RPG, I think Sumwunn announced that he will be rewriting it in ZScript. That'll be pretty cool. The day we get modern GZDoom Server-Client to host servers of Doom RPG + RLA will be a dream come true. I love that mod, as well. I don't mind the complexity. Though, I like Wrath of Cronos because, in my opinion, it's a "stream-lined RPG" where I can just join, kill stuff, level a bit, leave.

Or has development ground to a halt ?


Not gonna lie, I been on ZDoom / Zandronum for quite some time, and finally resisted the urge to no longer run around the community without a forum account and suck up being shy. Going back on topic with that said, I can easily fix this. Would take literally a couple minutes with just adding an additional index to each array, recompiling the ACS, and then running through it in-game to check if everything is saving, but I would rather let monkeybtm6 officially do it since it's his ACS source. Modifying someone else's stuff without permission, not good. Also hugely looked down upon. Not sure how active he is on the forums, either.

I stay optimistic. I keep my eyes peeled in the event Thetis suddenly pops back in here with a new post showcasing a new update for Wrath of Cronos, haha.

Sounds like Shadowcaster (1993) thing.

Question. Can somebody recommend good list of... let's say 3 Heretic WAD's to combine with? I release that things completely unpredictable in relation to Heretic. The degree of pairing can range from "normal" to "completely unplayable" in case of difficulty and enemies toughness.

I've short list for Hexen which is, as people talking, is fine one: Hexen Cyrgoth's Manor, Hexen Cyrgoth's Revenge, Shadows of Cronos, HeXen: A New World. Looking to make the same one for Heretic.

Heretic: Masters of Chaos - needs a patch, found on this thread.
Sitnalta by ArgonianLord (From him also try Hexen: Tower of Chaos!)
Shadowcaster by TheUltimateDoomer
Heretic Community Chest.

Of course, there's also IronTusk's Diablo 3D, which uses Wrath of Cronos as its rpg base.

In my experience, those are all perfectly playable, and well enjoyable, with any character at skill level 5. The shorter ones should take you, if you find everything, as far as about level 40ish, while megawads such as Masters of Chaos can take you above level 70.

Too add to that, it’s Experience modifier is adjustable in the options menu, in diablo 3d ive seen players reach as high as 220, and that’s with the experience modifier cranked up. You can have it as low as you want and play through diablo 3d’s 7 acts and reach a minimum of 45 levels even if you don’t do a lot of killing, but rush through most of it.

The modifier was probably one of the best options ever introduced by Thetis when he made Wrath of Cronos. There are other Heretic and Hexen mods in the works that use this as a base as well.

It is for Hexen but I have made a campaign called Cult of Despair which uses WoC (you need load WoC 3.A first), I have plans to release the next update soon and a vanilla patch when I finish the entire level design. It is very focused in combats and ambience and less in puzzles/switch hunt if you are interested, I always appreciate more feedback.

Heretic Community Chest.

Heretic Treasure Chest? Added 2 anothers to the list.

It's more like total convertion / separate game / too complex to my criterias.

Hm. It's required to set digits to specific numbers to make things more comfortable? Perhabs I've had too high level one enemies or sort of...

Also. One more thing. No matter how I set up the mouse, there are hefty lags when moving / twitching effect. Perhaps the matter is in the settings of the video adapter in this case. Any thoughts?

Specifically, I don't have a problem playing in the "tractor driver" mode, but it was interesting to understand the root of the problem.

t is for Hexen but I have made a campaign called Cult of Despair which uses WoC

You mean not Heretic, but Hexen. Added.

Update about mouse controls and possble difficult problems. Can say two things:

1. I'm not recommend to put difficult higher then #3 of 5 in the list. Depends on specific WAD. If difficult still will be too hard for you then turn on "Start with Second Weapon" in options of the mod. That must be enough + you can try to switch +/- on diffiult #4 of 5.
2. I highly recommend to turn on QUAKE_TILT.PK3 from "HeXeReTiC Fantasy", viewtopic.php?f=43&t=58009. So as result you will don't need to turn on the autoaim / no problems with shooting and moving will be.
