    Hi,
    I was wondering if their was any devs interested in porting Hexen to 3ds? I saw a port for hexen II so I'm sure it can be done for an ealier version. If not, any pointers to resources for porting to 3ds so I can give it a go myself? (not tutorials, I am a competent programmer).

    somewhere
    Does source code exist for the game?

    If not, it's gonna be a lot harder to do.

    I have a repository that actually compiles ctrHexen but crashes after a while. If anyone is interested, i can give him the source of my little work so far.

    About the fact this hasn't been ported yet, basically the cause is that Hexen II uses Quake Engine which is a really well-made engine and easy to port differently to Hexen I.

    I think if you want music to work you will first have to create the code to make the music play - those code paths appear to be stubbed out.

    I have a version of hexen that is runnable. No binaries at the moment, but it should compile fine. The bottom screen could use some work but it is functional(-ish). The top screen works best if it is increased to full screen in the options. The automap doesn't display correctly. And the controls can't be changed easily at the moment. Aside from that it seems to work ok with sound and music.

    Going to try compiling it because I'm impatient, however just created an account to just say thanks for making this so far and look forward to seeing the updates happen! This community is awesome.

    I'll post a cia if it isn't as bad as you say it is with control configuration, I'll post configs for the impatient like me for N3DS and O3DS in a few hours with the cia / 3dsx attached to the post, might contribute in github with a few overlay images for the touchscreen or help debug if possible.

    Just wow at this Hexen port. Thanx for your great work @elhobbs

    I feel ashamed of the gbatemp community who ONLY cares about piracy. This is a bloody near perfect port, and noone even knows about this. I promise that this game is better than like 75 % of all 3DS games. And The menu screen is at the Lower screen!! How did you achive this? According to rinnegatamante that was impossible..

    Thanx for your fantastic work @elhobbs I hope we will see more updates from this, heretic and all other cool games you may port!
