i?m new to this board so here?s my HELLO! <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> actually there?s only one question i?d like to be answered.. is there a way to play this mod without the doomsday engine? at first i thought i?d just need to put the right wad in my hexen directory - of course - nothing happened. well, the titlescreen?s there, but the character creation menus etc. won?t work :-/ i?m planning to use this mod on "Pocket Hexen" (it?s hexen for pocket pc?s) this one works just like the dos-version (you can even select fan-made wad files etc. so is it possible to get this thing to work in plain dos or not? i hope it is NOT because of the kmod2.dll, because i doubt that dos hexen would recognize windows libraries.. please - there HAS to be a way!! i really like this mod!

The dll files are needed for the mod to run, they hold all the info for the mod. From the character RPG stuff to the new cheats. So no AFAIK there isn't a way that we wish to do. Sorry.

Not only the DLL - some of KMOD's functionality is in the exe file itself. Running any of our mods on DOS Hexen is simply not possible. Something that will be possible on later mods of ours is to run them under DOS - but it'll be done with Vavoom and not the original game port. It'll also work under Linux, so it's all a question of what kind of OS you can squeeze on your PocketPC.
