    ditto. Mine's doing the same thing.

    Hexen was a little unstable on the last release as well (not so for Heretic). Sometimes it would just reset if I left it on the menu idle too long.

    According Wikipedia "Witchaven" and "Witchaven II" used the BUILD engine (like Duke Nukem 3D).

    I do have the same problem. Just download from gp32x.de hexen32.zip and heretic32.zip, but both zips don`t have the BLU+ version (hexen+.fxe, heretic+.fxe).
    The included versions do have the white bar problem on my GP32. Apart from that, great ports! Thank you.

    Sorry, I didn't compile the blu+ version. I'll add it tomorrow.

    There is a problem with the wad selector. Delete the wads.cfg file and it should work

    Probably you're using the Hexen v1.0 wad that isn't supported. Try 1.1 or 1.2.

    That's not possible.

    I've updated the music pack for hexen and heretic and now it sounds a lot better :)
    They must be unzipped to gpmm/heretic/music and gppm/hexen/music


    Heretic

    Hexen

    Great. Thank you very much. I wish you a lot of nice christmas presents :rolleyes:

    This problem did I also have with other Hexen/Heretic/Doom ports. Most ports I know expect the highest patched WAD versions. This may help to identify the correct WADs:

    Heretic v1.2 Shareware HERETIC1.WAD 5120920 25-09-95 22d3f0ca
    Hexen - Beyond Heretic v1.1 HEXEN.WAD 20083672 14-03-96 dca9114c

    Thank you. Just tested Heretic32 with "Heretic v1.3 Serpent Riders". The music sounds very good (tested with h**32_music2). I had to delete the wad.cfg - like you wrote before.

    Update: Hexen32 with "Hexen - Beyond Heretic v1.1"... :D Wonderfull!

    Howcome I can't run these? It just resets as soon as I select from the wad selector? If I delete the wad cfg file it just loads the fxe then resets. What is wrong?

    @spaceboygp32x and DaveC, try this version.

    It works fine on my FLU and BLU GP32 with the wads.cfg intact, with the wads.cfg deleted and with only one entry in the wads.cfg.

    Deleting that wads.cfg worked for me. :)

    Heretic always works for me. But sometimes Hexen restarts after selecting it from the wad list.

    What I do is get into Heretic first. Then quit so the GP32 restarts... Then start up Hexen and it works. If yours works like mine (With Heretic working but Hexen not), then give this a go.

    Try one thing: format your SMC. Now I remember I had a similar problem while porting Hexen and that solved it. :blink:

    Any chance of someone re-uploading the Blu+ Fxe's for Hexen and Heretic?
