Nox bots in development!

Ephreaym is working on Nox multiplayer bots
The latest effort to develop bots for Nox looks very promising. As for now there are still a few features missing (names, scoring) but they are getting better and better. Even CTF support is being worked on! Check out the Work in Progress YT video. The bots are based on the OpenNox scripting API and require the latest OpenNox 1.8.12 alpha. To keep up to date with the development visit Github.

To play with the bots just download the Github project and create properly named folders for the included maps (basicmap for the arena and endgamebw folder for the CTF map). To use an existing map just drop all the bot files in the maps folder and rename the “mapname”.go accordingly.

Nox-Zone.eu is now Hecubah.com

Hecubah.com wasn’t taken anymore so i couldn’t resist switching domains. I think Hecubah is a way catchier name than Nox-Zone. For the people who don’t remember or weren’t around back then: once upon a time Hecubah.com was the go-to website for Nox news. They originally did many of the developer interviews now archived on this site. That was just after the Nox release in 2000. Sadly, at the end of 2001 Hecubah.com suddenly vanished. I’m in no way affiliated with the old website but i think after 20 years it’s fair game.

Nox-Zone is back!

Back from the dead!
Nox-Zone was first online in 2002. I found most of the old files on a hard drive and thought why not do a remake? I don’t really expect anyone to visit this site, i see it more as my personal Nox archive. It’s still unfinished but i’ll add new content every so often.

New trainer from BURN3R!

Wow, der neue Trainer von Burn3r ist es echt wert getestet zu werden! ; ) Man kann mit seinem Char jeden Gegenstand aufnehmen ohne den Char selbst zu verändern. Gibt’s natürlich in der Download-Abteilung. Und es gibt neue Funshots : ) Bild1 / Bild2/ Bild3/ Bild4. Außerdem gibt jetzt jeden Monat eine feste Umfrage die ihr in der rechten Spalte unten finden könnt. Diese geht noch bis zum 1. Dezember.
