There is one called Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel. However, don't ask how/where to obtain them.

Why not? Is it atrociously bad?

This is not a warez site. Don't even think about asking. Same thing would be true in all Doom-engine forums.

Wherever did I say this is a warez site? I've been checking Amazon.com to see where I can buy it. I never download games because I collect the boxes and all sorts of materials. Sadly, I have always fallen for collector's editions because of that. I was asking where I could BUY it. When you said not to ask how or where to obtain it I assumed you meant it was not worth getting. Jeez you don't have to get angry.

When you are looking to "find it", this can be taken as "downloading illegally".. if you had said to "buy it" initially.. it would have been a different story. I can only think of idsoftware or Raven's website (not sure if it still exists)... this is a DOS game and unfortunately it is hard.. if not impossible to acquire at this point.

I'll just keep looking on those websites for someplace that sells it. Google will help.

Why don't you try the Raven Software page? They might have a link to where you can buy it already.

I poked around on ravensoft.com and raven-games.com and could only find a demo. amazon.com has used copies for $2.99. Search for "Hexen" or "Deathkings" under "video games" If you want to use midi music for it, you will have to download an extra music wad file that myself and a few others pieced together, as when they released it they figured everyone would use the CD for music. (It's called dk-music.wad, but I can't seem to find it at the moment <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->) It's pretty darn hard on the harder settings. I don't think I've ever played through the whole thing, but then again, I haven't played Hexen in a long time either.

Thanks for the tip. So there are ways to get original Doom music to work as it used to?

Deathkings have only CD tracks assigned for the maps. When using MIDI music, it has no music in maps.

Here you go, I think this will work fine, just add it to the files list when running hexen Deathkings <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->. Maybe Janis should add it to the downloads list on this site, just to have it somewhere <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->.
