Hexen - Deathkings

Sun, 29 Aug 2004 16:34:57


"Deathkings Of The Dark Citadel" was the mission pack for the original Hexen, and it adds 20 new levels.<br><br>Would it be possible to add this version of the game to the main list in the launcher program instead of having to load the deathkings wad with the command line option?

Yeah, that's not a problem.

Yes it has! and it's pretty cool, if you can get it yourself you won't be disappointed, heh! <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

I tried to get into it but it seems too dense in monster placement, meaning it's definitely cooperative material, I can't complete it alone. <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->

Just to state the fact, I completed it back in the 1990s on skill 5 in single player. Yes that means reloading quite a couple of times, but basically all you need is to be a no-nonsense fighting machine with good resource management (every artifact, heck even every single health vial in the maps counts). Of course it's not a 100% kill completion, e.g. the 4 death wyverns in Brackenwood you best just try to dodge.

I'll look it up online... I was playing Heretic yesterday. I got to the first level of "Dome of D'Sparil", sort of like that?

Hahaha, I played it with Kmod, and even though it would better just try to leave some pretty stiff situations (facing 3 or 4 Heresiarch's at once from a dead end place that left me in huge problems to hide), the wyverns, etc... But the damn experience point collection is so addictive, I just had to kill ALL major monsters, no matter how long it took - just to get to that next level... It's a drug... <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: -->
