GLHexen2 Warpos.
As requested, my "rogue" port for warpos (didn't know where to put this).

Use AHI 8 or 16 bits. Possibility to grab the left button mouse in window mode ( see readme).

Still bugs and fixes to be done to the original code.

DO NOT USE the "demos" to check the game as those on the original 68k package, or you will be dissapointed (are really bad done). Use original game cd paks.

Edit: Removed beta2.

Great job it seems to work so far.

I have AHI 8 bit DMA selected so hz reported is some huge number 381924892 something like that, the original Hexen 2 68k version had this same problem.

800x480 works but the heads up display looks like it's positioned 1/4 up the screen.

Opening Options in the menu locks up the game.

All screen options are better be changed from shell (-w , width, -f , etc). Those get "almost" saved & you can restart without calling a shell.

Don't use DMA on ahi. Hedeon says it doesn't work well. Better (paula?) 8 bit stereo (I use fast paula 8 bit stereo++).

Whatever changes on options gl parameters it's preferable to check those and then close the game & restart.

Permedia users -> GL_luminance 8 bit.
VooDoo users -> GL_RGBA.

Sound works fine with 8-bit Stereo ++ I used 27khz (or whatever nearest).
Runs well.

Joystick doesn't work, I'm using a PSX pad with Kipper's adapter in second mouse port. In_joystick and Joystick don't seem to be recognized as variables.

Hedeon 21 May 2017 16:42

using the -nomouse option makes the options menu work (strangely enough).

Cowcat 21 May 2017 17:24

Seems to work ok with me with no "-nomouse" option. Even can change effects options with no problem (those shadows are wrong, again old quake stuff), but I stay away from changing screen modes/resolution/apply.....

Still a lot of bugs to fix

The joystick support was originally written for Poseidon, and doesn't work very well with the regular lowlevel.library. It assumes that the controller types can be reliably detected upon startup. You can try to use a program like JoyPortTest to make sure the type reported by lowlevel.library is joystick/gameport and then start the game. I plan to overhaul this, but haven't got to it yet.:guru

Tried it again and crash when no arguments used with glhexen2. Options work with 'glhexen2 -nomouse'. Maybe Sonnet specific.

Cowcat 21 May 2017 17:53

My plan is to get rid of all mouse nonsense, so that implies changes to original code & to behave like my usual stuff with windowmode.

AMIGASYSTEM 22 May 2017 15:00

There is a version GLHexen2 68k?

Aladin 22 May 2017 15:03


BsZili port:

Hedeon 22 May 2017 17:48

For the ones who missed it: Great job so far!

Ups... Maybe someone is wondering where the cool effects went (hitting things = kaboom) or why the spiders are kinda sedated or when the witch is going to appear in the game. Basically the gore.

Mistery? No, big mistake !! "posix library" is missing in the binary.:o:o:o:o:o:o:o:o

Wonder why all could function after all. Expect a proper next "beta".:scream

By the way all version uploaded are done with latest vbcc :great

Hedeon 27 May 2017 14:18

Can't wait for it! :-)

Aladin 27 May 2017 14:38

I have use your port of hexen2 in my topic: FPS on amiga (topic in french)


Have you another good WarpOs/Warp3D port?

Cowcat 27 May 2017 19:16

Ok. Hope that it works better :)

Added fog, a little bit of fix for shadows (that needs much work to be decent), no annoying mouse for fullscreen, the explosions, blabla...

Do not use menu to apply changes for videomode/resolution etc. Still not a solution for this. Just do it like BlitzQuake. See readme.

Cowcat 27 May 2017 19:18

Aladin: Nice work :great

No more ports for today.

Hedeon 27 May 2017 20:41

Options screen now works every time.

-nomouse option still results in a mouse pointer on the screen.

timedemo demo1 crashes mostly at the end, sometimes in the middle. I think some interrupt behaves badly, but not sure. It's demo1 from the AROS archive. Same behaviour with -w and -f.

I now see more gore. -)

Thanks for the update :-)

Cowcat 27 May 2017 21:20

Hedeon: Don't use -nomouse :) Should not be looked as half working as before. Until I find something to cleanly separate the old code from other ports, this option doesn't work well.

You don't play with mouse ? :)

Sometimes timedemo does something bad, but I only see the crash when closing the game (the last beta did the same). Maybe increase vertexbuffersize.

There is a bug in one of the scenes: When you see the "sheep doing the jump", the game slows down because an effect keeps doing "something" as being in a loop, probably the whole level. Happens also in my testing linux version: When I was figuring out how the messages work and printing the resoults, the effect message keeps printing on screen. Of course a nowadays PC doesn't slow down at all but the effect message, weird enough, is the same when you hit a wall....

Maybe a non patched wad/pak ??
