Abomination of desolation!

Report RSS HeXen vs UDMF

Posted by on


So I started mapping with UDMF (Ultimate Doom Map Format) for GZDoom and Skulltag, and yeah it`s pretty badass! It saved me from trouble of coloring sectors with ACS functions (Sector_SetColor) or fading them (Sector_SetFade).
Instead I can do that without ACS. I can even set ID to a line while giving a totally different action!
HeXen map format is old skool and it`s cool, but UDMF is a fan made format and it`s pretty awesome.
I can even do a separate texture alignment on upper and lower textures in GZDoom Visual Mode.
But still HeXen rules!

UDMF is not a map format on it`s own, it`s more like updated HeXen map format. It still uses ACS and that good stuff HeXen map format brought!

Blood! Ooh yeah! There is also HeXen95.
Many people hate HeXen because of puzzles, lol! And they call themselves old skool games who play hard games!
My friend has beaten HeXen when he was 10 years old, on PlayStation and after that on PC!
I also love a game called Strife. I play vanilla, cuz the game was never ported like Blood, it`s source code was lost!

HeXen was on PlayStation? Dam, I've still got the original dos version on CD, doesn't work on my PC windows 7 (not even in dos box :( )

The current project I'm working on was heavily inspired by blood, I've played Strife but only the shareware version...

I have the beta source code for blood, but only for dos.

Can you do a little favor for me?
I want you to take a photo of a box and the CD. I`d appreciate it! I`m a huge HeXen fan!
And YES I wanna have a pic of original release (by that I mean first issue)!

Dam, sorry, I kinda wish I could, :( but a couple of years back, I made the unfortunate mistake of loaning my copy to a "friend" who went walk about; prick also took my copy of Heretic! >:(

But I do have another friend, who I know for a fact has the CD; don’t know about the box though, when I see him again I’ll be sure to take a photo of it ;)

EDIT: I don’t know if it’s the first issue, but will see :)
