Bloodshot, about ambient sound effects. Do you use some custom sound entity or did you just used vanilla sound effects? Also do you know how one can change the volume or distance of individual sounds?

Hello Mathuzzz,

Hexen gamecode follows very similar syntax like Quake gamecode.
You can use most features/mods which have been developed for Quake in Hexen2 as well with only minor adjustments. *hint*

You have a few different existing .hc compilers. Though, to be able to use most advanced features you should of course use fteqccgui.exe. It has a lot of options which also includes H2 adjustments.
When you are familiar with QuakeC you will feel home very quick with HexenC as well. Coding is almost identical.


Back to your question:
Just like in Quake you also have this sound function (look into .hc files to find lots examples):
Code:
void (entity e, float chan, string samp, float vol, float atten) sound
As you can see, float vol sets the volume. 0 ... 1

Different attentuations and distances can be used by these values:
float ATTN_NONE = 0;
float ATTN_NORM = 1;
float ATTN_IDLE = 2;
float ATTN_STATIC = 3;
float ATTN_LOOP = 4;
Different channels by these:
float CHAN_AUTO = 0;
float CHAN_WEAPON = 1;
float CHAN_VOICE = 2;
float CHAN_ITEM = 3;
float CHAN_BODY = 4;

Tip:
You can use either original Hexen2 source or any Quake source (incl. mods) to see hundreds of examples of how these things are beeing used.

It is not difficult. I am sure you will be able to do what you are aiming for.

Best wishes,
Seven

@Mathuzzz, seven is correct, I had to edit gamecode. I actually added a "noise1" key to the existing ambient sound entity but if you want new sounds they need to be precached, so you have to edit code to precache them so you can use them in your levels.

Sorry it took so long to respond, a family member passed away and I haven't been doing much on my computer recently because of it

Otherwise though, I threw up a modDB page with more media today

Hexen II - Shadows of Chaos mod - Mod DB

@Bloodshot Sorry to hear about that.
I already handled the sounds, though I would like to look into it in the future, still wondering whether it is possible to change music during the map, using global sounds.

Im looking forward to the demo version of your mod. I see you like to use hanged men/skeletons.

its great to see you brought the disciple into hexen2!

it has always been my fave enemy in both heretic&hexen1,
and its was a shame they completely removed the enemy from the sequels

so its nice to see the disciple being brought back into hexen2

I stripped down the hexen 2 necromancer and remodeled his head, and then reanimated it, I think he works pretty well for it.

EDIT:

Coop works





Network saving is broken but I got rid of level loss on death so getting the new abilities is no longer an issue

Idea
Hexen 2 mod set in 2013

We need to fight off a bioterrorist group in terragrogia

Classes
Special forces
Civillian
Cops
Madman
Talisa

Mopnster idea
Revelations 2 sawer-He has a drill that instakills you.Very hard to defeat.

Also we can add extra weapons,like pressing 1 can switch between 2 weapons.Like in quake AOP for LG-Prototype 2 and thunder bolt.
