Description [fr]

Un moteur compatible et amélioré du jeu Hexen II (de Raven software), par The Hammer of Thyrion Team.

Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion (HoT, aka uHexen2) est un port source pour Hexen II, c'est à dire un moteur dérivé d'id Tech 2 engine d'id Software, compatible (et amélioré) avec le jeu Hexen II, sa démo et son extension "Portal of Praevus mission pack", permettant d'y jouer en utilisant les données de la version Windows. Les principales améliorations ont porté notamment sur des corrections de bogues, le son, les modes vidéos et l'ajout du rendu OpenGL.

Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion est basé sur un ancien portage Linux dénommé "Anvil of Thyrion".

Hexen est un FPS médiéval fantastique - succédant à Doom et à Heretic, dans lequel le joueur incarne au choix un guerrier, un prêtre ou un magicien avec pour chacun, des armes et des possibilités adaptées.

En 2000, Raven Software a publié le code source de son jeu de tir basé sur des classes, Hexen II et son extension multijoueur HexenWorld. Depuis, il y a eu quelques ports sources de ce jeu, comme le projet Anvil de Thyrion qui a été abandonné, mais rien n'a été fait pour Linux depuis le début 2002.

Le projet Hammer of Thyrion est un effort de port source multiplateforme : Nous continuons le développement pour les utilisateurs de Linux, BSD et Mac OS X, avec un support continu pour les utilisateurs de Windows également. De nombreux bugs sont corrigés et de nouvelles fonctionnalités sont même ajoutées : de nouveaux modes sonores, une gestion améliorée de la souris, une amélioration des modes vidéo, des effets OpenGL et bien davantage. Vous pouvez aller à notre page de projet pour plus d'informations.

Description [en]

In 2000, Raven Software released the source code to their class based shooter game Hexen II and its multiplayer extension HexenWorld. Since then, there has been some source ports of this game, such as the now discontinued Anvil of Thyrion project, but nothing has been done for Linux since the beginning of 2002.

The Hammer of Thyrion project is a cross-platform source port effort: We continue the development for Linux, BSD and Mac OS X people, with continued support for Windows users as well. Many bugs are fixed and even new features are added: New sound modes, improved mouse handling, improved video modes, OpenGL glows and more. You can go to our project page for more information.

Features

☑ Support for Hexen II, Hexen II demo, Portal of Praevus mission pack, and HexenWorld.
☑ Supported operating systems/platforms: Well tested on Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Windows, AROS, MorphOS and even DOS. Other unices with SDL support should also work fine. Known to build and run just fine for QNX, and Nokia internet tablets N770, N800 and N810 using Maemo. There are separate ports to AmigaOS4, RISC OS, PalmOS, GP2X and Pandora. Well tested on both 32 bit and 64 bit platforms. Well tested on both little endian and big endian platforms.
☑ In-game resolution changing for both opengl and software renderers. Instant fullscreen/windowed toggling on X11 (unix).
☑ Widescreen FOV (field of view) support and automatic Hor+ FOV scaling based on resoluton in both opengl and software renderer.
☑ OpenGL enhancements including multitexturing, glow effects, working brightness control, text and hud size changing on the fly, translucent console background, console background stretching, colored lights and support for external lit files, anisotropic texture filtering, fixes for texture cache and model mesh cache mismatches.
☑ Fully network-compatible with Raven's 1.11 windows version as well as with other Hexen II ports. Can load and play games saved with Raven's 1.11 windows version.
☑ The same binary handles both original hexen2 and the mission pack.
☑ The same binary transparently handles progs.dat files of both v6 and v7 specs.
☑ The same hexen2 binary transparently handles all v1.03-v1.11 (hexen2) and v1.12 (mission pack) style progs.dat files.
☑ The same hexenworld binary transparently handles all v0.11, v0.14 and v0.15 style progs.dat files.
☑ Fullscreen intermissions and help dialogs.
☑ MouseWheel support.
☑ Improvements and lots of fixes to the HexenC game code.
