    Hey all,

    I noticed that Doom now works on the R4DS, which is sweet! Anyone tried to get the Hexen homebrew to work on the R4DS?

    Looking forward to that game :P

    Does that work? I was planning on trying that if no one else had once I finally get my R4.

    if you've got heretic, and rename heretic.wad to doom.wad, it should work.

    dunno about hexen though.

    (this works for the PSP emulator, same thing goes for Quake2)

    quote from website: "DSDoom loads any Prboom-compatible IWAD file."

    doesn't this mean that it should work?

    here's goldeneye converted to a wad file running on the DS using DoomDS

    so yeah, it should work with all iwad files, if the file you got is pwad (expansion map packs, mods and stuff like that) you should try to convert it to iwad first by merging it.

    The goldeneye mod looks great. Keep in mind that the goldeneye is a reconstruction of the doom.wad (most likely the one from doom2). I was wondering about pwads though, as there are some really cool ones. But DS Doom has no command line as to intergrate them in the original iwad. But that link suggested a program that merges the pwad with the iwad into an doom.wad which is exactly what I was looking for [​IMG]

    The goldeneye mod is a modification of the doom wad, restricting itself to what laws the original engine is capable of. In short.. you can't [​IMG]
