There was a sourceport for Hexen 2 but I can't remember what it was called, I'll try and see if I can find it.

Here it is! It's still regularly updated as well, which is nice.

I really should think before I post.

Only "Quake" ones I can think of were really just for enhancing the graphics. "Tenebrae" for "Quake" was cool but "Berserker" for "Quake 2" is hard to configure.

DirectQ has 360 controller support, but I've never tried it out: xi_usecontroller 1

There's something called the UQE which allows Hexen2 to run on larger screen resolutions. And it even comes with bots if you miss the Multiplayer mode like I do.

Kinda funny, because a controller actually makes 3D FPS less playable...

There was a time back in 2009 when on Friday and Saturday nights I was able to play Hexen2 Deathmatch against up to 3 or 4 human opponents through the UQE port.
We were using a messenger application called Hamachi for tracking our IP addresses and arranging the Deathmatch sessions.
Those nights were good while they lasted.
Nowadays, it's just me and the bots whenever it comes to Hexen2.
But fortunately there's Heretic2 which retains opportunities for going against human opponents once in a while if you catch the right moment.
