I had no big problems (except some mana preservation here or there) as the paladin in one beyond the hardest difficulty, but now I started the expansion as the assasin and I have to say I am getting my ass whooped real good.Too scarce mana, too weak weapons compared to the enemies I face and too much damage taken from attacks...But I like it tbh, it's challenging :)

Does Hexen II work on anyones PC without the home made patches? Because I'm using WindowsXP and I need to patch it up with the Hammer of Thyrion fan made patch to make it run. Sorry random question.... :?

try deleting the glide specific file. That is what fixed my problem with running in hardware mode.
Sounds Great. Do it again.

It's a whole strange process I have to go through to make it work. I have to delete the glide, then if I want to play it in GL mode (Rendered) I have to patch it up with the fan made patches. I usually use the patch that gets rid of the black block glitch in the Necromancers magic missle attack but do not switch the prog files because I want the attacks of the enemies to be as pure as possible with no change in their behavior.

I prefer playing my oldies through DOSBox, or at least a minimalistic source port when I can :)

I use Zdoom, it keeps up pretty well with the original gameplay and does not have many bug problems.The only thing is that it gives you the same button range and console for all the applications.As a result, due to some games being more advanced than the others you are able to do things you couldn't do otherwise such as jump or crouch in doom.However I think it's not that difficult to refrain from hitting two buttons :P

I actually have dozens of doom ports on my computer(s). Chocolate Doom, PrBoom, Zdoom, EDGE, Doomsday, SMMU, WinDoom, and the original EXE version 1.9. I really only use the first 3 though. I've even got Doom running on my new Linux PC (playing it regularly!) :ugeek:

if you think hexen II is kicking you ass, wait until you get to that stupid puzzle in the Temple of Nefertum.

True that. I could never get past that part on the highest difficulty.

I don't like II at all. Well, I won't say, AT ALL, it does have a few redeeming qualities, but for me, the game is just too "quakey". I feel like I should be running through slipgates instead of magic portals and its just too "rough". It doesn't feel like Heretic or Hexen at all to me, more like a mod for quake. I got stuck in Egypt too and just gave up. I haven't played it in a while. I've been meaning to get back to it, but I've been busy playing other stuff...

Egypt was the last enjoyable hub/episode. Fourth and fifth were even more boring(especially fourth)
