The Editor's final code submitted for port and testing

Hey everyone!

Just some quick and exciting news! So we have now a final code for the editor with all content complete. In the coming weeks Abstraction will merge it with the main game and their engine, get it ready for Steamworks and of course fix as many bugs as possible before we hand it over to all of you!

And when do we hand it over? Weeeeell If all goes as plan we will be able to offer those who are interested access to a beta editor late next month! FUCK YEAH! Finally you say:)


More info as soon as we have anything to share!

Thanks for your patience and Have a great weekend!

//D.W and Cactus

Update

There are a handful of features that won't be in the beta, but will be added in a future update. These include:

- No rewind/fast forward screen
- No off screen floor transitions (like in No Mercy or the soldier levels)
- Creating optional cutscene content
- Probably something more, hopefully nothing important

PS. No need to post your Steam accounts in the comments

    Will we be able to use our levels made in the beta editor in the later full version of the editor?

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Depends on what we will need to change in the level saving/compilation process for final release. So, hopefully yes, possibly no.

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. The editor wouldn't be very easy to use with a controller, so it will be pc/mac/linux only afaik. The plan is to release the best of the community made levels for the console version though. So you'll be getting some new content at least.

      And I wasn't angry or anything.

      Radera
    3. And they said that anyone, who is interested will have it so that means that you'll see the Beta in your game and if you want to play it, you play it or there will be a submit option to Beta in a the Steam news.

      Radera
  55. Sorry if this has already been asked, but will levels made in the Beta editor work in the finished version of the editor

    SvaraRadera

  56. Will we be getting it on ps4 and ps3. I've been hearing different answers everywhere. Apologies if you've answered this already.

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. For the last time, No console because it would be harder to use they are just going to aadd levels from the community.

      Radera
    2. Oh ok so we are going to get community levels then? I don't mind getting the level creator itself, i just look forward to New levels. Sorry again if this has been answered.

      Radera
  57. So are we allowed to create custom characters? I'm not getting that drift which seems kinda silly considering that we can create cutscenes and entirely new storylines (with custom covers)

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. If you mean a Sprite editor, no you can't but there is a way that is modding.

      Radera
  58. You won't be able to edit sprites or music with the level editor, but you can with external utilities like the HLM WAD Explorer.

    SvaraRadera
  59. But who is the new character?!

    SvaraRadera
  64. Holy burgers, thank you!

    Just a question to either Cactus or Dennis, can you consider giving us a dev kit any time later? For modding the storymode campaing? Many would love it! Modding is a pain in the arse for many! :)

    SvaraRadera

      If you'll be able to make cutscense.

      Radera
  67. Cactus, quick question, I know Dennis said he won't make Jacket face at the time, but, Does that means Jacket will have a canon face anytime?
    If you have reasons for not answering this question because it's a secret it's okay I understand.

    Thank you.

    SvaraRadera

    1. No face for Jacket. He's not really the talkative type anyway :P

      Radera
  68. Holy...Between this fucking kid and those "iamsuinterrestedheremysteampagelololol"

    Holy Hell.

    Anyway. Guys. When the editor will be released. You will need to right click to "hotline miami 2 : Wrong number" (in the library) then click properties and the editor will be available in the Beta window.

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. There could be another way as I said before but I'm sure when the editor comes out we'll know how to access to it.

Also, Cactus, a guy in the previous post was talking about a theory and I know you won't say if he is right or not because you guys keep secrets (I love you for that) but we believe that there is a five soldier and it's the secret character also if you could call me "Stupid shit head" 90% of my life would be complete.


    Thanks again!

    1. No, you stupid shit head ;) It's not a fifth soldier, but nice guess. Definitely won't reveal anything this close to launch.

  73. I have some pretty specific questions about character weapons.
    1 Can the pig butcher use the Double Barrel against cops?
    2 Will the Skorpion return as a weapon that Jacket can use?
    3 Will the Pig Butcher get the MP5 like in the old Hotline Miami trailers? It would be nice for him to have a machine gun type firearm.

    That is all, apologies if this has been asked before. Thanks in advance.

    SvaraRadera
  74. 1-Depends on the sprites that are already designed
    2-Some weapons won't return I don't remember wich ones but I think that question is in another post
    3-Same as 1 (I think) and I readed that it was just made for the trailer (I'm not sure)
    Hope this is right.

    SvaraRadera
  75. can't wait. would love access to the editor.

    i predict the secret character will be the werewolf from keyboard drumset, but i hope to pleasantly surprised when i'm wrong :)

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. You mean the Fucking werewolf band itself?
      Well if so Dennis already made a mask based on his band.

      Radera
    2. not the band itself, but the purple werewolf with the skeleton gun from one of dennaton's earlier games

      definitely wrong, but nonetheless, the dennis mask will definitely satisfy that curiosity

      Radera

  78. (Sorry for english)
    Amazing work!
    So, i have a question. What about a custom character? For example, we can choose from avalible perks (Walk faster, etc.) or play styles (Roll dodge, killing punches) name it as you want and reskin it (Masks sprites or full sprite sheet). I know, its very hard to make it, but it's just an idea C:
    P.S. Cactus, You are genius! Lovecraft game was a first indie game that i played :D

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. No custom character, but you can mod the sprites.

      Radera
  79. Hey Cactus! It's me again
    So, Are the achivements going to be disable in the editor?
    because a lot of people could chesse them like Combo God (20 combo) and it wouldn't be the same well except with Genocide (50000 kills) because let's face it you were really high when making that fucking achievement I mean I've done Genocid but with the editor would be easier and you don't require skills for that one but the other ones should be disable for the editor.
    (Sorry for too many questions and a big text)

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Mmm i think that if they add new achievements for multiplayer like COMMUNITY BEAST(Beat 20 online levels) and they modify the achievement Genocide so it can only be completed in story mode it would be great.

      PD: wow you really are a huge fan of the game hope see your levels in the future :D

      Radera
    2. Den här kommentaren har tagits bort av skribenten.

      Radera
    3. Thank you but, Why would you want Genocide can only be done in the story mode?
      That's the only achievment that should be unlockable in the editor as I said before because you don't really need skills just time.
      And I will make levels but I not sure if I'm going to upload them because I suck at level design.

      Radera
    4. I'm not sure* Fucking typos of mine.

      Radera
    5. You are right xD wrong idea from me. Anyway i think that any level that has been done can be well recieved and if you run out of ideas i was thinking in create a steam group for people who wants to remakee hlm1 in the level editor there if you remake a level if its possible to exchange levels a person could group all the levels made by different people in one VHS collection and upload it :)

      Radera
    6. That's a good idea, I should talk to Abstraction about it. And yeah, sorry about Genocide, it should have probably been 5-10k instead.

      Radera

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Mmm i ain't cactus but i have seen him at the beginning of the game in the chapter midnight animal the guy who is runing from you in the first floor probably someone who the devolopers know cause most of the people in the game are based on real persons(only their appereance)

      Radera
    2. Isn't that guy from Midnight Animal (It's a glitch if someone were wondering)

      Radera
    3. Yea this is a Glitch if you try to execute the ganz leader barehanded but let go. Then this guy appears. I think its because theres no unarmed gang leader sprite so this filler sprite appears, i think

      Radera
  83. Can we have cutscenes that trigger when all the enemies on a floor are dead?

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Well you can add an outro cutscene so that would be the same...I think?

      Radera
    2. That's not what I mean. According to the post back in May, the only way to trigger a cutscene within a level is to walk into a specific area. I'm asking if we'll be able to trigger cutscenes automatically after killing every enemy on a floor.

      Radera
  84. I hope that the community made levels will be good, and not just "JACKETS THROWING CHALLENGE" or "THE FANS 99% IMPOSSIBLE" or "COD RUST REMAKE" or "EVAN WRIGHT MELEE ONLY CHALLENGE" or "LEVEL FOR TOBUSCUS" or "MY SCHOOL" or... I think you get the point.

    You can help by making decent levels that are not 100% linear and are not for Jacket or The Fans.

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. xDDD you definetly made my day with the FOR TOBUSCUS i suppose there will be a rating where you can give an 0-10 puntuation or 0-5

      Radera
  85. ((Don't mind my username it's trash.)) Hello, I'm pretty sure I'm not the first to bring this up but, I would really hope that the Playstation group also gets the level creator. I know it will be hard to port it to fit the console versions of HM2 but I would totally be willing to wait longer than PC for it. Even if we do not get the creator it's cool, I hope the community levels are at fun. Thanks bye :)

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. This has been answered many times...
      Besides, Can you imagine how akward the editor would be with a controller?

      Radera
    2. The plan is going to be that you can download levels form the community of Steam.

      Radera
  86. Will I be able to spawn enemies that start off unarmed (but run for a weapon when they see one?)

    SvaraRadera
  87. I have three questions concerning the editor:
    1. Will you be able to use literally any of the games music in levels such as, Dust in an action level?
    2. Is there any music that didn't make it to the game that you plan to put in the game, such as the trailer music?
    3. Are you sure the editor cant make it to consoles? The reason I ask this is because there a already a majority of console games (even on ps vita) that have level editors such as: Little big planet, sound shapes, gravity crash, stealth inc and more. I'm sure you could pull it off.
    Love your games (HM2 is my favs) and love you guys. Looking forward to what you create in the future.

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. 1-Cactus said something about offline music, and other people said something about modding the music in Steam.
      3-There is a tons of reasons why it can't make it to the console version
      -You need to write items, so you can find them easly.
      I don't really know how to explain the other reasons but I can't tell you that is easly with a keyboard and mouse.
      -

      Radera
    2. You'll be able to use any song in the game for custom levels.

      Radera
  88. OH and also, the console version of hlm2 has the same bugs you guys patched on pc in the last bug fix update a while back. Just figured I would report :)

    SvaraRadera
  89. I RETURN, with a request...do you mind adding the HM2:comic menu theme to the level editor?

  90. If there is infact a leaderboard for custom levels: You know how in the regular campaign leaderboards, you can tell which fan someone used, but not which Son or Beard ability they used? please fix that.

  95. I downloaded the Hotline Miami 2 spritesheet for Beard, then i went on paint and changed it so I can make my own character. So I have my own complete sprite sheet, is there anyway I can put it in the game through the editor?

    Svar
    1. Probably not through the editor, but you can already apply the patch using HLM WAD Explorer.
