Description : This is the source code of Heretic and Hexen by Raven
Software, originally released in January 1999 under a
restrictive EULA, and eventually re-released under the
GNU Public Licence (GPL) version 2 in 2008.
The original Raven site for the source code has gone
away. The re-licensed software was uploaded to Source-
Forge which is at risk of disappearing. This upload is
to ensure the ongoing preservation of this historically
important release, on a mirrored source, the accepted
home of Doom/Heretic/Hexen-related stuff.
Additional Credits to : James Haley and others in the Doom Community involved in
getting the code re-licensed. See
for more information.
