One of the most highly anticipated releases of 1997, HeXen II was the first game from an outside developer to ship with Quake engine technology. The game featured four single player hubs and deathmatch capabilities for 16 players while simultaneously offering four character classes, each with four weapons with dual fire modes for a total of 32 unique weapon effects. In addition, HeXen II was the first 3-D shooter to feature transparent water effects in both hardware and software rendering modes and one of the only fully 3-D games to feature single player cooperative gameplay.

Modified much like its original this game has stood the test of time and has quite a few nifty mods to show for it

I'm trying to figure out how to mod Hexen II. I am generally focused on modding the audio aspects of the game.
I've been trying to find what kind of programs to use. Can someone help?

To look at the structure of how audio is set up in the game, you'd want something that can explore the .PAK archive format. As far as I know the .PAK files used by Hexen II haven't changed format in any way from the ones used by Quake, so Quake .PAK tools should work.

As far as inside the .PAK, I'm pretty sure the sounds and music are just standard wave and midi files. Some ports can also use OGG music as a stand-in for CD tracks but that wasn't standard to the vanilla game.

Your modded stuff would go in a subfolder of the game that can be invoked with the "-game" parameter.

Depending on how extensively you want to retool stuff you might want to look into the HexenC scripting as well but for a simple sound replacement it shouldn't be necessary.

Hexen 2 is pretty much the best game of the Hexen/Heretic series, Heretic 2 would be the worst game.
