Its Happening

Yeah I know, more unrelated news, but figured I mention this anyways since it runs on the same engine that powered PowerslaveEX.

  1. 1. What happened to Powerslave EX?
    2. I liked Turok 2 better.

        So the project is still alive?
        Sorry for being boring, but i have seen so much licence killed because copyright or money stuff….
        Even if it’s killed, thanks for having tried (sorry for my english). We need people like you to make those awesome games alive!
        I played your expansion for Hexen (Shadows Of Cronos) with the 3 class, it is awesome too ! 🙂

    Did you have access to Turok’s source code or was this a complete clone using the original graphics?

    Would it be possible to do Turok 3? I know it didn’t have a PC port but is it similar enough to Turok 2 at least?

    Hope this is a success for you. It would be nice to see a final release of Power Slave (with the Saturn content and online multiplayer). I’ll gladly pay.

    Will this release of Turok support Steam Workshop? I’d love to play the original with the Cerebral Bore.

    Even though there’s at least 2-3 reverse engineering projects I’d LOVE to see Night Dive get the rights to Blood. I’d give my left nut for that.

    I checked it out, you did a great job on remastering the original Turok for the PC. I hope a Mac OS X port is coming soon.

    You should also make a Mac OS X port of Powerslave EX as well.

    If you do go back to Doom 64 EX, here’s what you should do in the next version:

    Add the ability to add 40 or 50 maps to a Doom 64 WAD.
    Add the ability to change the next level and sky info of a map in the MAPINFO file of it.
    Add the ability to add custom new monsters, skies and reloading animations for the guns to it.
    Add the ability to add custom new music and sound effects to it.
    Make working Mac OS X ports of both Doom 64 EX and Doom Builder 64.
    Add the ability to change the colors of the nightmare versions of the monsters in Doom Builder 64, this way you can change the colors of the nightmare cacodemon from green to red to make it look more like the one from the Absolution port.

    After you’re done with Doom 64 EX and Powerslave EX, the next one you should port is Quake 64. That was my favorite version of Quake 1. I like the music, the sky textures and the color lighting that version had. A EX port of it would be awesome, especially someone will be able to make N64 versions of the six missing PC levels and restore the lost entrance to the Dismal Oubliette map as well.

    Keep up the great work on your EX ports.

      Here’s features you should add to Quake 64 EX if you make it:
      The option to have smooth animation.
      The option to have the dead bodies of the enemies stay on the floor instead of disappearing.
      Decompress the music and sound files so they’ll sound better.
      Add the six missing PC levels, restore the lost entrance to the Dismal Oubliette map, maybe add a exclusive level to episode two and another exclusive level to episode three as well. This way all four episodes will have eights levels each.

    THANKYOU! I love what you did to my favourite game of all time. Is it possible to port it to PS4, via PSN?
    I really hope Turok Ex sells well for you.
    I tried to enjoy Turok 2, the graphics were amazing with the N64 expansion pack.. But the framerate dips and pacing just ruined the fun. I have faith that Turok 2 EX is going to be sequel that we were all looking forward to in 1998.

        Finaly, some news, but is your mod from Powerslave EX ?
        Seriously, what happened to the project of Kaiser?
        Having no news since more than 1 year ago is a pain, it was supposed to be released, then nothing, was it stopped because copyright issue or others??….
        It stress a lot of people (like me), it could be nice to know at least what happened!
        Exhumed/Powerslave games are my favorite with BLOOD and Heretic/Hexen….I hope, even if PS.EX is not a nextgen game, it could be so cool to have modding tools or map maker like Kaiser seemed to want add….
        If NightDive Studios have bought the project, it could be cool to say if They get the copyrights or not for it…everyone say rumors everywhere about it x)

        Thanks for being there and your patchs, hope the best for this project!

    He received a cease and desist from what I read on forums. He was planning to come back to it at some point… I suspect negotiations of some kind were in the works but I haven’t heard anything for some time now. Lets keep our fingers crossed. Will try and get it uploaded soon.

      Who could have done that, NightDive Studios or the unknow studio who have basically the copyrights? (2k?)
      Whats the point of blocking an IP who get nothing since 20 years ago, it’s like BLOOD with Atari…..
      It’s really awful and sad :/
      And they force him to not say anything about it? It’s the worst…..
      I hope He will be allowed to release the game in any way, even if we must buy it, i could pay it ,especially if there is mapping tools/modding !!
      What was this forum ?
      Thank you for the information…people think It’s just NDS who could have taken the project but it seems, there is a big problem :/

      It’s really well made ! Awesome render and stuff. But is it harder ? It seems….not sure.
      I don’t remember the Anubis Soldier in the first map.
      Exhumed PS1 is easier than the PC “classic” version, it’s why a “hard” mod could be an awesome challenge! 😀
      Do you know if it could be possible to add a map maker later? or multiplayer?
      It could create a community….
      Wonderful game anyway =)

        There are more enemies thanks to Kaiser’s Hard Mod that came with Powerslave Ex. Whatever you do, just remember to credit Kaiser as the ports creator, any changes I made are in the “CHANGES.txt” file. I would not be able to add map markers, as I’m not really a programmer, and although I have experience in mapping, the engine and source have yet to be released… Shame, because I would give my right arm to be able to create maps for Powerslave EX.

      Hi Mark,
      thanks a lot for your mods. They really add to the game. I love the new sound effects.
      Do you think you could replace the flashing effect when you hit enemies with the blood from the PC version or even new blood effects? I think they Labatomy changed the blood effects to the white blinking because of the low resolution of the consoles so you could see better if you hit the enemies. But real blood would fit the vibe much better imho. What do you think?

    I know as much as you on that one I’m afraid. Would love to see this game get a proper re-release on Steam and modern consoles, we will just have to be patient and hope that whoever owns the rights has the sense to allow Kaiser to continue officially on this project.

      Ah ok, i see, it could be the copyright seeing the fact he “gives the original games files for free, do you know if it can make the project like a special launcher with the CD on the PC?
      I mean, i have the CD version of the game, and a lot of people too, if we use it on the pc and launch it with the program of Kaiser, could it be good for the copyright problem ?

      There is so much potential…what about a kickstarter to help me to make… Powerslave 2 ? 😉
      1/ Buy the IP 2/ make the game but everyone know He is good at it !
      Kaiser made an expansion for Hexen (Shadow of Cronos), and the level design and all are awesome in….same for a lot of wads an others work.
      It could be fun! ^^

      People said, it could be take2 interactive or the original maker of the game who asked for the copyrights. Some other guys said it’s not a problem of copyrights, they say “Night dive studios” was working on powerslave EX (with Kaiser then).
      But since 1 year and 5 month, still nothing, it’s weird for a remastered/port.
      Maybe if he adds a lot of things, who know, i hope it’s not dead…
      Im replaying the PC and PS1 version, i like a lot those 2 gameplay, if it can be mixed It could be awesome, big relief and inventory + magic power jump/fly and 3D floor …he could make a real remake with new maps and other, it could be a blast !

      But a simple remastered with MP and map maker could be perfect anyway 🙂
      I hope everything is ok for Kaiser ^^
