'''Hacx''' (pronounced "hacks" and commonly written as '''HacX''') is a total conversion for Doom II. It was released by Banjo Software on September 16, 1997, and featured an entirely new set of graphics. Hacx uses a DeHackEd modified version of the Doom engine and the authors of Hacx paid id Software $5,000 for the rights to market Hacx as a commercial add-on for Doom II.

The '''Doom II release party''', also called the '''Doomsday party''', was an event held at The Limelight night club in New York City on October 10, 1994, the official release date of Doom II (though the game had become generally available as of September 30). Invitations were open to a limited number of adult members of the public from September 23 until September 28 at midnight. The event was id Software's first official release party.
  
Hacx itself was generally unsuccessful; by the time it was released, the superior Quake engine that had just come out made the Doom engine pale in comparison. Public interest for Doom and games derived from it was, effectively, dead; even though Hacx was considered a decent TC, it arrived on the market too late to become a success.

The event included a Doom II deathmatch tournament, with four-player matches in the Deathmatch 2.0 game mode. Awards were given, including a series of golden medals.
