Where can I find the VDUNGEON from here

I like the dungeon scheme here. I looked for it on the custom levels section of popot.org, but i couldn't find it on the list of VDUNGEON.dat files. Anywhere where I can find the .dat file used in this video?

The VDUNGEON.DAT overview is here.
The mod, Battle Hardened 2, is mentioned there.
To get the alternate level (inc. wall) colors of Battle Hardened 2, you'll need PoP 1.3.
I'm too busy right now to test this, but that's the gist of what you'll need.
Probably David could give you details.

That's simply the original VPALACE graphics with the palette from level 3 of PoP 1.3.
Basically, PRINCE.EXE was changed to use palace graphics on level 3, but the level's color variation was kept as the default value 1 (green).
Apoplexy has an option to change the type of levels, but no option to change the color variations.
You can do that with CusPop instead: https://www.popot.org/other_useful_tool ... ool=CusPop

Alternatively, someone could make a custom VPALACE.DAT (using PR) that contains the green palette (from PRINCE.DAT) instead of the original one.
I made such a DAT file for you, see the attachment.
It does not need PoP 1.3, it works with 1.0 as well.

I'll keep that for future use :)

Hm, these color variations only work with 1.3 (and 1.4?) right?
(I mean, by default; not including what can be changed with PR.)

Yes.

While at it:
The text fields in the "color variations" section should be disabled in CusPop on page load, because 1.0 unpacked is selected by default.
Actually they get disabled if I select 1.3 and then 1.0 again, or if I select 1.0 packed.

The onchange event of the version selector calls the x() function, which takes care of disabling input fields that don't apply to the newly selected version.
I guess x() should be called once on startup as well.
(Maybe it should have a better name as well.)
