Some Possible Ports?
Posted 03 September 2004 - 05:05 PM
Freecraft got a C&D letter from Blizzard a few years back, but the source is still available online in a few places, including here: http://home.earthlin...ds/download.htm
newhexen is a source port of Hexen II, although there are other ports like jHexen2. Apparently even the latest version of QuakeWorld has Hexen 2 support. Hexen2's source is freely available and can be downloaded here: http://www.liberated....php?game_id=38
[and hey, while I'm making lots of suggestions, might as well throw in that I'd love Heretic/Hexen support from the already incredible DoomX...]
Since practically every other iD game has been ported [spare the Heretic/Hexen series of 4 games] I personally know I'd love to see Wolfenstein 3D ported to the xbox. Sources are available, but I know from wading through them myself that they're pretty convoluted - so it'd take a brave soul [or a skilled coder] to port it over. Source available here for Wolf3D: http://www.liberated....php?game_id=17
The two Descent games were a lot of fun, but probally overlooked by most people. An excellent port, d2x, was done by icculus - who has the source code freely available on his website. I know I'd personally love to see it ported:
Now, I know a n00b like me has no grounds to demand or request certain ports - coders only have so much free time, and their time is precisely that - their time. I'm only making requests, putting some ideas out there for possible ports. I'm not demanding anything, or harping on anybody to do it. But I would love to see any of these great games ported to the Xbox, and I'd be eternally grateful to whomever could do it.
But lots of thanks to those of you coders out there working in your spare time to create such amazing software for the Xbox - you guys [and gals] are incredible, and you've made the Xbox one hell of a gaming platform. Keep up the great work you porters, app designers, emulation experts, and all you other uber-geeks.

Thing is I have yet to see anyone try to tackle it on any system, or if they did they never got anywhere.

I dont remember there being much difference between the two as far as ingame features.
Then again it's been years since I played em.

BTW, death, I would love to see you port over Blake Stone because I just can't get it to run right in Dosbox. Would be a pretty good project for a beginner anyways i'd imagine.

It is perfectly possible they share some similarities.

i know its not my game because i runs fine without the port
but heres the problems i've had with jhexen
-when i beat the seven portals (level 2) its supposed to display text
instead i get (text not found)
- in the next level theres a portal, and when i go into it the game exits
does this happen for you, this is pissing me off
i want to play this game, but i can't stand playing this game regularly, and i need the good open gl graphics too
