I want to say keep the DREAM alive Ian et al. the artwork was found online I did not create that just turned it into a cover. it is already sized 256x256 for Pvr conversion. I have others I have made if there is any interest.

Greatly anticipating this release Ian, thanks!

I want to ask.......so is there a major hang-up with Hexen 2 running on Dreamcast? Memory issue?

This looks great Ian! I'm really looking forward to trying it.

Hexen II uses a modified version of the Quake engine and requires twice the memory.

I've just tried Bero's port of Hexen II but there's a lot of issues with it.

Mrneo240 was working on a preliminary port of it, or updating Bero's older port on more modern KOS before he retired. I think Ian MAY look into it in the future but he already has so much stuff on his plate as it is. He has no shortage of projects going on, that is for damn sure haha. There was a recent port of it over to OG Xbox about 2 years ago I was beta testing for the creator. It is running in software mode but still pretty cool to have it on a console natively. I am actually not aware of other systems it has gotten homebrew ports to that is fully functional.

It really is such a sweet game, would be great if it ever came over to the DC in full.
