I just read that Heretic II (http://www.ravensoft.com/heretic2.html) by Raven (I loved the demo btw, but never got around to buying full version) supports full-blown cooperative play (multi-player completion of the single-player campaign).

I just ordered Heretic II from ebworld (http://www.ebgames.com/ebx/default.asp) for $6.99. What a deal.

Anyone want to play Heretic II coop?

I might be persuaded to partake in such forbidden pleasures ;)

You know you want it.

Real Coop Play! Deathmatch and team DM with awesome spells and third person bladematch battles!

$6.99

Can't go wrong, man!

6.99? I think future buyers need to do a MB/transfer time analysis.

What does mb transfer speed matter?

Heretic II has THE BEST 3rd person camera/movment

This game is awesome, and I still play multiplayer daily. Although the community is small, they are an awesome group of people.

The mulitplayer should keep you busy until Jk2

Well, that depends on the person. It might matter to those who want to order the Full Rack with appetizers tonight instead of just the Half Rack with a glass of water. I like to dine large. And be subtle. :)

Cool diablos. Do you ever play coop mode or mostly dm/bladematch? Good to hear the community is still around.

Just got H2, will try it tonight.

Krayt, you are entirely too cryptic! Sounds like you need extra bandwidth so you can get your ribs and water.

Heretic 2 is an awesome game. Somewhat Jedi Knight-like in that it has projectile weapons and spells. And also allows you to play with emphasis on melee using the bladestaff, if you wish. Includes a 'staff only mode' for melee-only combat. The bladestaff is a powerful weapon and can stand up in a projectile battle.

H2 has more melee moves and movement combos than Rune. Includes 3rd and first person view and stick support, a flexible, adjustable camera, scripting support for binding sequences of commands to keys or buttons to automate tasks. Dedicated servers, DM, team DM, full cooperative mode. Plus there are arena and skull hunter mods, a CTF mod, as well as a class-based mod. Wish I had picked this up years ago! Worth well more than $6.99!

Reconfiguring Heretic 2 will make a big difference in your game experience. This includes rebinding defaults and scripting actions to improve player control.

Findal's Binds (http://www.planetheretic.com/findal/fin_htm/forum_htm/Formndex.html) has some very useful information on configuring Heretic II.

For example you can bind spells to keys Jedi Knight style like this in your user.cfg file:

bind r "use *morph"
bind 2 "use *tornado"
bind 3 "use *meteor"
bind 4 "use *lshield"
bind Alt "use *quake; use *ring"
bind Ctrl "use *tele"

Or, for instance, here's my script for a first person/third person view toggle (on the F1 key) :

// Frist Person, third person toggle
alias third0 "cl_camera_fpmode 1; cl_camera_fpdist 1; wait; cl_camera_fptrans 0.0; alias camalias third1"
alias third1 "cl_camera_fpmode 0; alias camalias third0"
alias camalias third0
bind F1 "camalias"


Findal's main page (http://www.planetheretic.com/findal/fin_htm/HerIndex.htm) also has a lot of useful information on configuring HII.

1st person is useless for Heretic2, game wasnt meant for it :)

It only was implemented in a later patch, but Im telling you, nothing beats 3rd person for Heretic2.

I have no doubt you are right diablos. However, some gamers (not me) still cling to their first-person roots. :cool:
