[Release] Heretic - Merciless Enhancement v1.0

Postby Expect No Mercy » Sat Jun 24, 2017 5:58 am

This is my new Heretic Enhancement Mod. The Idea was to create new and better effects for Heretic with the use of GZDoom, while keeping the original vanilla look.
It will improve nearly every aspect of the game.

Merciless Enhancement v1.0

"This time it's merciless!"


Main feature:
    - No HD stuff inside! Everything matches the pure vanilla Heretic look of the 90s.

More features:
    - everything in zscript
    - fake water transparency
    - new fire effects, with smoke and ember
    - some new sounds
    - new blood & gore system (possible new reference in blood mods!) :biggrin:
    - has 550+ brightmaps (maybe biggest use of brightmaps in a mod)
    - footstep sounds for player
    - gargoyle wing sounds
    - most actors tweaked and modded

Possible future additions:
    - enemy step sounds
    - more ambience stuff
    - script polishing
    ... and becoming the best Heretic enhancement ever! :thumb:

Can you upload videos to show the effects in real time.

As far as enhancements go, Heretic hasn't received much love lately, Hexen 1 has received even less, Strife has received none at all (except a steam re-release). It's always heart warming to see these underrated classics get some more love. :mrgreen:

This actually looks pretty cool. I've also released a mod for Heretic recently but i don't see much interest in this game. I guess all of us are playing Doom.

Maybe later I'll do a video of that, but for the moment just download it and have fun, its less than 1 MB in size. :biggrin:

That is true. But I decided to do a Heretic mod, cause it's uncommon and maybe unique. Such mods were done for Doom thousand times before.
