Brutal Heretic RPG

This is my version of Brutal Heretic RPG, a mod for GZDoom by Seidolon.

What's in this repository?

This is a Mercurial repository. It contains three bookmarks:

  • upstream tracks the releases made by Seidolon. It's basically a mirror of Seidolon's original.
  • fixes tracks bug fixes and performance improvements. These should not noticeably change gameplay. Get this if you want the experience to be just like Seidolon intended.
  • gameplay tracks gameplay changes that I've made to make the game more fun (in my opinion).

Those familiar with Git might find this article helpful. If you prefer, you can instead use Git to interact with this repository, using git-remote-hg.


  1. Download the latest gameplay or fixes zip.
  2. Unpack the zip. This will produce a single folder (probably named “argv-brutal-heretic-rpg-something”).
  3. Load the folder into (G)ZDoom (like -file argv-brutal-heretic-rpg-something). The engine will load the folder as if it was a pk3 file.

If you use ZDL, its “add” button doesn't know how to add a folder like this. Instead, drag the the folder from Explorer, and drop it on ZDL's “external files” list.

In the future, it will hopefully be possible to load the zip directly into GZDoom. However, due to what appears to be a bug, GZDoom is unable to load zip files generated by Bitbucket.
