For the archer see if you can use the Ghoul 3 Archer player sprites, with permission most probably...

what's the problem with you? why are you stealing my ideas!! So you cheked DoM just to steal code? uh!?
Spoiler:


Well, would be interesting, however will be a little hard to find a suitable mummy that have 4 different phases ((1) normal, (2) no arm, (3) no arms, (4)no arms nor a leg) ;) I have the rips and I can help you with the code for all monsters (believe me, making the mummy actor is a real pain in the ass).

I am going to remake few HeXen II enemies. Death Knight Archer is one of them, it will be modified Heretic Death Knight.

The spider sprites that you found in UTNT actually comes from Blood.

@Maelstrom: Thanks! I don't use any content without permission.

@Thanatos: I'm definately steering away from model rips (especially high-res), since they don't mesh well with the original sprites, and it'll look odd (load up DoM and summon an ettin next to an archer, and you'll see what I mean). I'd prefer to do the Decorate myself, also. Pain in the ass or not, that's the fun part for me :D.

@Neoworm: Cool, I'd love to see it when it's done. What monsters were you going to make, so I don't end up using 2 hours to make a monster you're already doing :P?

@Nash: Thanks. I'll see if I get re-rip those sprites since the ones from UTNT didn't seem like the complete set (Burn death doesn't look right, and it doesn't have a full melee animation).

Edit: Okay, Skull Wizard's just about done. If someone could put some kind of skull on it as a helmet, I'd be really grateful! I'll PM the wad over if anyone wants to.

Here's a small preview of the Skull Wizard: Image

I'm very proud of it's decorate, and it's one of my favourite recolors, but it's missing the trademark skull helmet.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a sprite set I can recolor for the Iron and Crystal Golems? I thought about using the Golem from Heretic, but bleeds when it does, and would be hard to edit.

What about simply putting another monster's head to the mage? Maybe a Alpha Lost Soul? Or a goat head from the Satyr? Something that looks more like the Hexen2 one? :) Other than that, nice work so far :)

Or the skully heads from those skeletal Imp guys from KDIZD.

I already tried the Alpha Lost Soul, and it looked terrible on all but the 1 rotation. While I can recolor and code, I'm really bad with sprite edits like that, lol.

perhaps try placing a Revenant's skull inside the hood like you did with that Mage edit, it's not a 100% accurate to the original monster but it might look really cool

Oh btw what do these skull wizards do? I've neevr played Hexen 2

The skull wizard is one of the most annoying and complex monsters (I've yet encountered) in Hexen 2, for something that shows up a few times in the first map. It throws flaming skulls (recolors of the nitrogolem's tracer), sometimes in quick succession, it can force you back if you get too close (can't find out how to do that, but it has a melee attack), and it teleports if you're close enough.

It also can take a lot of damage, and is really tough to fight with a melee weapon.

Make a new item that inherites behaviour of Repulsor disc but have +AUTOACTIVATE flag and maxinventory 0. Then give that item to skullwizard with A_GiveInventory every time he needs to force player away...

Neat trick, lol. Unfortunately, every monster around it started slaughtering it when it forced me away, lol. That's one trick I have to remember for a boss, though.

Is there any kind of weapon.kickback for a monster's melee attack?

+NOTARGET should prevent other monsters attacking him, but it will not prevent infighting between repulsed enemies. But with clever placement in map it shoudnt be problem. And I dont think there is kickback for monster melee attack, I think you can set kickback only in player weapons.
