What do you guys think of Crusader: No Remorse? I know it has a killer soundtrack but that's about it, didn't give it a chance yet
Controls are kind of crap, sometimes things are kind of glitchy. I like what it was going for though but it's a bit clunky feeling. It's like a Isometric prince of persia with guns.
This. I carry the No Remorse soundtrack around on my phone.
The sequel, No Regret, adds some movement niceties IIRC, but the soundtrack feels so forced, like they ran out of good ideas during the first soundtrack.
I never played these on PSX, only DOS. I wonder if a controller makes movement easier?
its fraking awesome
its not like ur playing a bow rogue on diablo with Mouse + Keyb
so you have to get used to the controls, change them a bit, experiment, until you can use it without thinking about it,
you have relative and absolute rotation,
you have 8 directionals for: walk , jump, run, roll,
so its best to make use of CTRL ALT xxx... modifiers for these so you can use numpad for all movements
and since the world is a grid, you can pretty much plan ur movement to finish the roll aiming straight at the enemy and blast them before they even shoot
its bet to hit and release the directionals instead of holding, hit it as a movement is ending so that your motion is seamless and thefefore as fast as it can be
Also that sound for the set on fire scream.

This is fucking crazy. Once you get the controls down, you feel like an unstoppable force of terror, shitting down everyones throats. The action gets too chaotic, especially once you start getting your top-tier weaponry.

The controls can be a bit janky until you get used to them. You control your dude like a tank, arrows to turn and up arrow to move forward. They are fun, the graphics are good for DOS, there's good explosions and lots of stuff to shoot. I'd say essential playing for someone into DOS games.
the echosector site used to be pretty active years ago, people were working on mods and trying to construct what would have been Crusader 2. Really depressing honestly to see a games fanbase get too old and few to do much. I actually kept in contact with 2 of the original devs, really cool people.
One of my favorite isometric games OP. Very worth playing once you get used to the controls. Like the other anon said you feel like the cold hand of vengeance once you get good at it and get top tier weapons.
I love it, all sorts of fun weapons and gadgets. It's like an early cover shooter in a way. The game makes you feel like an operator.
My advice is to use just the keyboard, once you get used to the controls you'll be rolling, staffing, jumping and running around with (relative) ease.
Webmaster of Echo Sector here. I'm taking the blame for lack of activity in our community. I rarely update the site and still have a lot to do to bring the site up to snuff.
I do have a lot of rare and interesting Crusader material yet to upload, but mostly for legal reasons. Still trying to get the source code for the games and Crusader 2, though.
do the 2000s thing and go wiki
find a visual side that isnt wikipedia-like, so you can use a hand made menu
and set it so admin needs to check new articles and/or new edits

whatch out for anyone anonymously releasing this in some blogspot post and link at echosector
Older picture, but I have a lot more where that came from.
I've had that in mind for awhile. I do enjoy the "curated"/"handmade" sites of late '90s-early '00s, but it may be time to just wiki it.
I know the developers of the games and they'll probably give me the code—I wouldn't expect them to anonymously release it like that. Would be quite surprising if they did!

It's without a doubt the best action game ever made on the Ultima 6 engine.
> project overkill
Hey this looks alright.
