About This File

Finally, a user created hub for Hexen, that lets you play the game the way it was meant to be.

ADDENDUM: I spent over 100 hrs. on this project editing and testing on my P-100, only to find that the third level does not run worth a fuck on my friends' 486DX2-66, but it does play very well on mine and other's Pentiums'. So I'm releasing the first and only Pentium specific wad! Before you flame me though, I am working on a 486 version right now. I just couldn't bear to let all this work go to waste!!!!

It's okay. Quite easy due to the abundance of artifacts, mana, & health. The level design is fine, nothing special. The only truly bad part was the unmarked puzzle bookcases, forcing you to wallhump the entire library as a last resort. Otherwise it's pretty simple stuff, running around finding keys and smashing monsters. The texturing and lighting aren't fantastic but aren't noticeably bad either. The only glaring issue is that many windows just show a wall textured with the sky texture rather than an area with a sky ceiling. Yet there are perfectly normal outdoor areas. Perhaps the author only figured it out skies halfway through development?

Anyways, this is worth your time if you want an hour or two of simple Hexen fun.

You get wings of wrath quite early, so it means you're a superman for most of the hub. In addition, there are _several_ wings of wrath. The author didn't know how the wings of wrath work in Hexen. Later on, you're faced with a puzzle which if done wrong, teleports you to fall into a death pit. Do the math. Eternal flight. You're punished to _fall_. And you can't escape from that pit even if you have the wings, because it's isolated from the rest of the map. 3/5 for the ambition.

Some parts show promise and good intent, but noobish flaws like ugly texture combination/alignmen t, fullbright lighting on most rooms, boring corridors, shoddily-done windows and wall-hump secret quests drag it down. There's also a passage that's permanently blocked (barring cheats) because a stalker is stuck in it and refuses to attack (so you can't kill him), but I think it might not be necessary for completion to go there. 2.

      Pretty enjoyable map, besides volume of background music. I'm just turned it off and stalk through map in silence, hunting on enemies that waited for me behind each corner. For vanilla-compatible map its very big and complex in structure. Map brings a good survival challenge for player by lack of medikits, forcing to play carefully and without haste.   I remember that i seen boxes with rockets, but not the Rockerlauncher itself. Its strange, but not breaks gameplay.   Overall, its a good example of vanilla gameplay and design.

      yeah I gotta admit, this one's pretty good too. apparently it's not a speedmap, but it damn sure got inspired by a lot of hard levels we all know and love. if it attempted only to do that and make a hard level that has similar aspects to those many maps, it succeeded, even though the level itself isn't gonna be as memorable, it is still a fun, tough challenge map. hone your skills with this map.

      rather oddly, this short map ends up being my favorite from Didy. it's not confusing at all at least until you try to find the red skull key, and the pacing is pedestrian. the setting of the beach and the underwater stuff feels amazing, and the preshow at the beginning plus the interior parts weren't too bad either. all in all, pretty neat for once.

      well, it's a speedmap alright, but those familiar with the magnum opuses that DD has already given will obviously not like this one as much. atmospheric? somewhat. nonlinear? that's great. tough? not as much as the other ones. basically, this is forgettable by DD's standards but is still miles ahead of other speedmaps I've played.
