Original HeXen Question

I have a question about the Original Hexen that people have been asking me, Why did they name Hexen, Hexen?

The 4th Class

"Hexen" is the German word for "witches." OTOH Hexen was originally going to be called Heretic ][, but it wasn't until VERY shortly before public release that they changed it to "Hexen: Beyond Heretic." In fact, the name change was so soon, that the game is quite frequently called "Heretic ][" in the resource lumps.

Speaking of the Original Hexen, there is a utility called Conv2hex, and I was wondering where you can get it.

I just searched for Conv2hex on the internet and found this hopfully it's what you wanted.

Well, you can give it a shot in DOSbox but it'll probably take a while. I haven't tried it myself though. Don't forget to up the cycles to like 9000 or so to reach the speed of a 486 80MHz. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->
