Hexen II up and running natively in IRIX!
I've got Hexen II up and running on my Octane!

It runs very well in a full screen mode of 1280x1024!

I've just taken a picture of it running in a windowed mode, to show IRIX in the background.

Ive also got it up and running in SoftWindows95, but it runs extremely slowly and without OpenGL.

The IRIX install file's in Nekoware Beta.

I downloaded the Hexen II demo and installed it in SoftWindows95 and then copied the installed folder over to IRIX.

I then copied the Hexen II folder into the games folder in nekoware and then copied the h2launcher and GLhexen2 files from the bin folder into the hexen II folder in games.

You need to run GLhexen2 first, which doesn't work and then only can you use the h2launther to launch the game, this is a necessary step.

Thanks to eudatux23, I now have the full version with expansions up and running!

I've tarred up the Hexen2 directory, which you can untar on your SGI and copy to the games folder within the nekoware folder. You will need to install "neko_uhexen2-1.5.4.tardist" and copy "h2launcher and glhexen2" to the ween folder.

Where do you want me to post it to? (As you can see, it's quite a large file.)

I will upload a tar containing everything this evening Smile

Here you can get the datafiles:
http://fr.irisware.net/irix-software/gam...les.tar.xz

You need to unpack that archive to ~/.hexen2

After that, please make sure that the files ending with .PAK in the data1 subfolder get lowercase names.

Now you can launch it with:
glhexen2 -width 1024 -height 768

No need to mess with launchers

Just forgot the tardist, here it is:
http://fr.irisware.net/nekoware/beta/nek....4.tardist

Octane2 Dual 400 MHz R12k - 2 GB RAM - Dual 73 GB HDD - vPro v12 - IRIX 6.5.30
O2 400 MHz R12k - 512 MB RAM - 73 GB HDD - Video-In - Flatpanelcard+1600SW - IRIX 6.5.30
O2 180 MHz R5k - 128 MB RAM - 18 GB HDD - IRIX 6.5.30
