Differences to the original Hexen

Demo/Beta Demo

libhexen's hexen-demo and hexen-betademo game modes work with the (free) Demo versions of Hexen. However, libhexen's source code is based on a version of the game released later, with some bugs fixed and containing other differences.

  • The original demo cheat codes are not supported in libhexen; instead, the cheat codes are the same in all Hexen game modes.
  • The original beta demo had a flashing "Beta" banner in the top of the screen. This is not displayed by hexen-betademo.
  • The original demo had a bug where the pickup messages of the Disc of Repulsion and Chaos Device were swapped with each other.
