HEXDD.WAD

From DoomWiki.org

This article gives technical information about the Deathkings data file. For gameplay information and walkthroughs, see Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel.

HEXDD.WAD is the IWAD used by Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel. While it is technically an IWAD, the only data in the WAD file itself are the extra levels (and their associated lumps), and some small graphics and end message changes, so the game will not run without an install of Hexen.

Older versions[edit]

Version File date Size (bytes) Entries MD5 SHA-1 CRC-32
1.0 1996-12-24 4,429,700 325 1077432e2690d390c256ac908b5f4efa c3065527d62b05a930fe75fe8181a64fb1982976 0c20539a

Compared to version 1.1, the missing entry is the SNDINFO lump, which is used to assign MIDI music track to the maps. Its absence means that no music is played unless audio CD music is used (since CD tracks are associated to maps in MAPINFO instead). This is the only difference; all other lumps are perfectly identical between both versions.

At the time of writing, version 1.0 is the version distributed via Steam, alongside Hexen version 1.1.
