wiki.frictionalgames(.)com/hpl2/start

i can't post links yet, but pretty much right at the top of that wiki page is the download link for HPL2, the level editor is in the package along with the other components of HPL2, entity editor, ect.

then on the same page is tutorials for pretty much everything you need to know about the level editor and will walk you through your first map.

OpenGl wins great over DirectX11 in terms of portability and customizations.

I love this game, the expansion I loved even more! No weapon for defense, nowhere to hide, just RUN and don't look back!:D One fair warning for any potential buyers who are easily scared, this could turn out hazardous for your human health. A friend of mine who played it physically hurt himself by going so tense he had a sore side for weeks thereafter. And with all the custom stories to keep you busy this is the best PC game of 2010 IMO even tho some glitches and bugs were breaking the atmosphere from time to time. I say, Best horror game EVER (since Penumbra of course) on Linux.
