I am very late with this great Hexen 2 Port for the Wii. The installation was not so easy, because you was miss out one point. But now I had solve the problem. This is maybe the best port of all PC games so far for the Wii. I had play very often Quake 1 and 2 for Wii, but your Hexen 2 port is better than any other ported game. Many thanks, its all working and with midi and ogg music. Also thanks for the debug menu it has lighting map option. I am PAL land, the game run on my TV with ~50fps and all is correct working. The classic controller is very good, all buttons can be configuration easy.
INSTALLATION (improved for Europe copys)
! You NEED STRINGS.TXT ! My german copy has 3 different string files, for english french and german. So it has to be renamed from
Stringse.txt - Stringsf.txt - Stringsg.txt, to only strings.txt ! And copy it with in the data1 folder or portal folder.
MAR. 11TH 2020 WIIHEXEN2.zip
With german CDRom ISO (own), not Patched ! old version
Played the full first episode, no crash, no freeze. Was running the game 5 hours in free mode, just walking, no crash. Perfect so far. Easy difficulty, no cheats
Now the big question, can you port Shadow Warrior for the Wii with music ? A other member had ask you for Blood and your answer was you need the source code. So far I know the source code for Shadow Warrior was official released from 3dRealms himself. And there is a Eduke emulator that suport Shadow Warrior. Please I on my knees, can you port Shadow Warrior for Wii ?I had see many reqeusts for Half Life Wii, but this make no sense it was official ported for Dreamcast and PS2. RTCW and Soldier of Fortune make also no sense for Wii ports. But SIN with Q2 engine was never ported to any console, this would be the biggest dream, the same with Unreal 1. I am highly interested in testing and I have some time for it. Short story for myself, I was working for 20 years ago in the Dreamcast Homebrew scene and PSX, but I am long time out and stupid to port myself. I am also happy with the Shadow Warrior Demo, it has alternate midi music. Love this old shooters.
anyway thanks for all you work
EDIT 1 : Testing
Use the lighting map debug option all the time. I have done the complete game from start to the end without use of any cheat. All puzzles and riddles was working without any bug or error. The game was not crash or freeze at any time. I have also done the complete Mission Pack, the same all puzzles was working, but the Final Boss there was a bug and I was restart it 5 times to kill him. So on Mission pack, make a save file before you go in the final room. Used Crusader on easy difficulty. I had play very slowly and take my time. The framerate is mostly perfect, only in water it go a little bit down, but still perfect. Now testing a little bit speedrun and hardest difficulty, since there are more enemys and the Wii need more power.
Thanks again, great PC port for the Wii.
EDIT 2 :
There is only 1 small problem, I can not read the Text on screen, because its to small and the red color is to dark when the background is black. Its not a big deal since the game is perfect working on easy difficulty so far. But maybe the resolution is to high.
Can you make a extra version for me of your Hexen II port ? Only for testing ? I want testing a smaller resolution in 640x480 with Wii output in fullscreen PAL 720x576. Maybe its also make the game faster in water effects ? Need testing. Otherwise can you add a debug option to make the Text screen bigger ? And last question, can you ad Game Cube Controller, or Keyboard and Mouse ? Still love your port !
