Rune Quake Head Hunters Mode

Type vote-heads to enable this mode.

Rune Quake's head hunter mode is a recreation of Charlie Zimmerman's Head Hunter mod.

To test head hunters mode, go to quake.shmack.net:26002 and type 'heads' in the console.

Instructions

Killng your opponent will always result in decapitation. Instead of getting a frag for your kill, you must pick up the head and bring it to the altar, which looks like the teleporter on e1m7 in pent room. The more heads you bring to the altar at once, the more frags you will receive from The Gods. For example,

1 head = 1 frag
2 heads = 3 frags
3 heads = 6 frags
4 heads = 10 frags
5 heads = 15 frags
etc,.

Custom Altar Placement (for server ops)

To create an altar from the server console, you first need to populate the scr_ofsx, scr_ofsy, scr_ofsz cvars with the corresponding xyz coordinates, then type create_altar or remove_altar. NOTE: If you're having trouble finding the coordinates for placement, connect to the server with a client, then use show-pos at the location you want to place your altar. For example, typing

scr_ofsx 100
scr_ofsy -200
scr_ofsz 50
create_altar


will create an altar at location '100 -200 50' on the current map you're on.

If you want to have these instructions load automatically for you each time your level loads, simply create a folder called altars either inside your id1 or runequake directory. Next. create a text file and enter the instructions exactly as I have shown above. You can create as many altars as you want and you can remove existing altars from levels with hard coded altars by entering the coordinates and using the remove_altar command. After your text file is finished, the file name should match the name of your map, followed by the extension .alt. While your drive letter and installed Quake might be in a different location, the path and file name should look similar to this:

Improvements / Bug Fixes

  • Heads that fall out of the level or land in lava respawn elsewhere on the level.
  • Phoenix rune holders cannot be picked up and don't spawn a new head when resurrected.
  • Switch rune switches the heads you carry. [Suggestion by Zop]
  • Added max visible heads, currently 16.
  • Use show-riders to see how many heads you have and frag value.

Known Issues


The mode is currently under development so please report any bugs!

Whoops, I was using an older version of the server for the mod and vote impulses weren't working. All fixed.

Use show-riders to see head count and frag total. I was initially going to add a new command, but I decided to piggyback off the show-riders command to save users the aggravation of binding yet another command that's only used for a specific game mode.

It doesn't seem to have the part where you can rise up and fly around (as a head) for about 5 seconds after you've been fragged, and chew on people (for 1hp damage per bite). Or am i mistaken?

Otherwise, awesome to see this is still out there.

Nope, you are correct. I added this mode quite some time ago but it didn't get the reception I thought it should so I left it alone. I wanted to iron out all the bugs before adding any other features like the taunting head and punishing altar campers but I couldn't get a big enough crowd to help test.

I liked the "punish altar campers" feature. :)

That's cool. Honestly, I have to minimize distractions right now, so I won't be playing anyhow. It's just nice to see the Runes+Headhunters combo is still around in some form.

This is awesome ... now I REALLY need to get RQ working on my server :)

I was talking with a friend last night about Head Hunters. So good!

This isn't something that is built into the main 1.4 RQ release though right? This will only work on your RQ test server?

You can always view the latest source on github (or download).

The source available is the master source only. You'll need a linux environment or compatible (Cygwin) to compile. You cannot use a QC compiler on it even though the files are .qc. It's used to generate the poq and qw sources. You can always ask me to compile it for you.

Ah, thanks for letting me know. I have no means of compiling it :) I may take you up on your offer down the road once I get things sorted out on my end better.

I appreciate all of your help - you are most generous! Cheers,

Question ... would it work to have custom placed alters spawn when the level loads by using the level specific .cfg files that try to load? Seems like you could add custom spots easily if that's the case.

Also... I got my server going last night (minus the DNS) and played a bunch. Had a blast with a friend. Soo ....

Any chance you could build a poq source with these new head hunters modifications so I could combine it with my server settings and custom map stuff?

For the standard Quake maps and the handful of head hunter specific maps, the altars are hard coded at the location that the original head hunter mod author put them. These altars will always be spawned but can be removed from the level specific config file. With custom maps, the mod first checks to see if any altars were spawned by the level's alt file, if none were spawned it creates an altar at info_player_start().

I wonder if there any stock models or some crazy arrangement of torches that could be made to create a bit more "alter-y" of an alter. Or use a big shambler head as an alter :P Just curious what the options for something more visible/whacky might be for the alter.

There are a few custom HH maps with custom models, I can't find it in my archives. You have a link to the client pak for HH?

I think the client file is in this folder (hh30cl.zip) that contains the custom alter.
