No joke - a new mission pack for HeXen. A sequel to Despair for Heretic.

- 5 all-new levels (and an unfinished map06)
- new textures, enemies, and powerful
- new KEYS
- DOOM-style gameplay and level progression
- a true BIG bad. ;)

Unzip then DRAG both the resource .pk3 and .wad file into a GZdoom shortcut. Level 1 was based on a scrapped layout from AlwaysDoomed, and other maps are based on my own levels for the dropped hPack. Resources from Ettingrinder, Ghastlydragon, and Realm667 used to good affect.

Reason: Link to screenshots directly, as they're too large.

The screenshots are way too big. Could you scale them down, please?

Very nice maps! good atmosphere and details. I played on skill 4 and it was about right difficulty-wise.
I liked the enemy additions so far.

The pickup message for the new keys could be shortened to "Skull Key" instead of "you've picked up the skull key" for some more consistency to the original keys, either that or change the pickup messages of the originals to match.

Some great use of textures, I especially liked the pews in the church on map 1.

The hidden 6th map appears to be missing a ton of resources...any chance of finding them?

I recommend using Imgur or Mediafire for screenshots.

It's nice to have more maps for Hexen. I would be happy if you could update the screenshots links so I could take a peek at the level design before downloading.
