#26 Nightmare (skill 4) misc

gameplay (1)

I couldn't figure out how to post a thread in the forums so I thought I'd put it here

Does normal h2.exe (from uhexen2) let me play Nightmare? Or, since starting h2.exe with -portals also lets me play the original game, can I turn on Nightmare and then start the original game? Finally, is Nightmare usually accessible with "skill 4" in the console? If none of these things are true, is there any way they could be in the future?

Thanks in advance

    Nightmare skill is specific to the mission pack progs, so yes you must run the game using the -portals switch. After that, open up your console and do:
    skill 4
    playerclass 1 (or 2, 3, or 4)
    map demo1
    ... which will take you into the original game with nightmare skill with your chosen class. The nightmare skill was actually meant only for the mission pack and only as a secret difficulty when playing with demoness on hard skill but that console trick will let you play it with the original game too.
