03/20/22 - Language Packs for AvP2 and Primal Hunt.
A lot of players have asked to play AvP2 and Primal Hunt in other languages, but these games can primarily only be played in English if using the Master Server Patches (MSP).
The official v18.104.22.168 update will often conflict with MSP causing the game to crash, and those updates don't include all the language audio.
Also the best downloads of the full games are often in English. For example, the German copy is known to have censored content.
Therefore, I decided to make proper language packs using the original multi-regional releases of AvP2 and Primal Hunt.
I ported over the audio, subtitles, huds and textures into their own rez file. I also made MSP versions that are compatible with MSP.
Each language pack comes with three rez files (original AvP2, AvP2 with MSP v2.4, and Primal Hunt for both original and MSP).
These rez files can then be run over the English versions of both AvP2 and Primal Hunt.
I made the language packs for Spanish, French and German. For the German version, I removed the violence censor too.
This is the only way to play the game in German without the violence censorship.
I might do one or two more language packs at a later time if I get other language copies of the games. Videos and download links of each of my language packs are below.
Primal Hunt is back online and I've been inspired to port some stuff over to it, make mod updates and create some new content as well.
I'm releasing four new mods. They are:
Star Wars Mod v2.0 - Special Edition for Aliens vs Predator 2: Primal Hunt.
Blood n' Guts Mod v1.1 - for both AvP2 and Primal Hunt.
AvP2 Campaigns for Primal Hunt Mod.
Ultra HD Texture Pack (Beta) for Aliens Versus Predator 2: Primal Hunt.
All of these mods have trailers except for the Ultra HD Texture Pack because it's beta and released "as is". Read the readme files and check out the trailers below.
I've made a lot of stuff recently and decided to release it all at once for Halloween and AvP2's North America anniversary.
I'm releasing a brand new Batman character model, a Tron identity disc weapon, a Halloween Madness Mod
(this is like Head Control/MAGA mod but with a Halloween theme and other new additions) and a BIG single player map pack called Happy Hunting Map Pack. Check out the trailers below.
I've released a gore mod that ramps up the "blood n' guts" in AvP2 quite a bit. It comes in four versions to work with other mods or various servers you might play on.
Check out the full version of the mod in the video below. It works in both singleplayer and multiplayer just like a character skin would.
I've been hard at work with models and managed to import a brand new character model into AvP2; the spider model. It replaces the facehugger, but it's not a small spider.
This is a large spider and with two skin variants, new sounds, huds, etc. I also made a bunch of extra animations for it. I think it turned out great. Check it out below.
As I was working on the spider model, I realized my old beetle model wouldn't catch on fire. So I gave it an update to 2.0 where it now catches on fire as it should. I also made a video about it. Give it a look too.
I'm releasing a small mod that swaps the health and armor powerups with a new powerup model from the Lithtech game Purge. The new model spins and looks really cool in-game.
Both the health and armor have their own new texture too. Check it out!
I decided to release a silly parody mod based on the famous MAGA hats, but it is "MAKE AVP2 GREAT AGAIN". Marines are the pro-freedom guys, while the Weyland-Yutani are the communists with corresponding hats. Yeah... lol. Check it out!
I should also update everyone on Star Wars Mod 2.0. It is 99.999% complete. Seriously! I just need to bug-fix two character models then it is 100%. I might still keep it on hold only because a friend may help contribute something to
the mod that I wouldn't normally make. We will see how it goes.
10/24/18 - Head Control Mod
As many are aware, I am still working on my Star Wars Mod 2.0 which is about 90% complete right now. While working on it, I came up with an idea for new small mod that I'm calling "Head Control Mod". It essentially replaces all
the helmets, masks and headgear on the human characters with facehuggers. So it will look like the facehuggers are "controlling" the people. Check the video to see for yourself. Download link is also below.
I recently rediscovered the dgVoodoo 2 wrapper and realized it pretty much fixes all issues I have with AvP2 on a modern operating system and modern hardware. It is way better than my quick vision fix mod.
Therefore, I decided to make a tutorial about what it does and how to install it. This wrapper will help a lot of players so be sure to check it out!
In other news, I am still working on Star Wars Mod 2.0. I took down my site's shout box because it wasn't reliable anymore. But there is now an AvPUnknown hosted discord for AvP2. I sometimes post previews of stuff I'm working
on there, so be sure to check it out. There is also plenty of AvP2 discussion and amusing content.
It's been a while, so time for an update. I'm behind on finishing up my mod. Sorry for those who have been waiting. It is not cancelled, just delayed like Duke Nukem Forever was.
However, I have put some AvP2 related videos together recently.
The first video is a tutorial for how to install rez files. I still get questioned on this from new and returning players, so I decided to make a step by step video on how to get mods and other custom content working.
The second video is a promotional video I put together for x-M-x's All In One download for AvP2 and Primal Hunt.
