    PS3 Heretic and Hexen Homebrew Ports by Hermes Arrive!

    Sponsored Links
    Today Hermes has relased a port of the classic PC games Heretic & Hexen for PS3 JailBreak homebrew users. The included .pkg file is the front end of both the games, but due to copyrights the game files are not included.

    Download: PS3 Heretic and Hexen Homebrew Ports

    The quote from Hermes post on Spanish Web site Elotrolado (linked above), roughly transleted by me with help from babelfish:

    Hello,

    In order to celebrate that PSL1GHT already beginning to have a good foundation and with the addition of the PS3 Soundlib that allows it to reproduce up to 16 voices of sound, I have ported two classic games from the PC to PS3 that make use of multiple effects: The games Heretic and Hexen.

    In order for them, to work they require wads HERETIC.WAD and HEXEN.WAD respectively (shareware or full retail will work, in capital letters and with that name) that must be copied in the directory of the EBOOT.BIN, within the folder " heretic" and " hexen" respectively, on a USB device. When starting the game, if it has been installed in hard disk (by means of PKG) the option to press CIRCLE to copy the content of the folders " heretic" or " hexen" from device USB to the installation folder of the game.

    Also, I have added vibration to the controller: when you receive damage, vibration activates strong, but when it is an enemy who receives the damage you will notice, it in the form of smaller vibration. Perhaps this last one is not very realistic since it is well if we are what we are inflicting the damage short-distance, but long-distance not as much and that to say that the controler vibrates when is currando the tiny beasts among them. Nevertheless I have left, it in so that sometimes it serves to let you know that you have a few fierce ones around and so that it turns out useful to know that truly, your ammunition is doing damage. (everything is not pure and hard realism)

    I have verified over HDMI which I test (that excludes 1080P) to deal with to look for the visible area of screen and use a routine that re scales a screen " virtual" to the final format. The problem is that the drawn area of the screen in PS3, is placed outside the visible area of your monitor/screen and that requires adjustments that I have done on the basis of my screen and not if in some other, can give problems or not, or if with some other resolution it requires new adjustments (a thing is that a slight edge is seen the right for example and another one is that directly, things are not seen that would have to appear). One distinguishes between 4:3 and 16:9

    The install instructions translated from the included readme.txt

    Installation

    There are two ways for install:

    1) By PKG. On this occasion, copy the folder content "pkg" on the root´s directory of the USB device and "Install Package Files" on the PS3

    2) By SELF. On this occasion, copy "homebrew" on the root´s directory of the USB device and load the applications with the "Open Manager" or another homebrew loader.

    Heretic requires the file HERETIC.WAD that can be copied to the same folder as the EBOOT.BIN (/dev_hdd0/game/HERETIC01/USRDIR or /dev_usbX/homebrew/Heretic) or on a USB device after making the folder called "heretic" and copying HERETIC.WAD (/dev_usb/heretic/HERETIC.WAD)

    The filename MUST be ONLY uppercase letters.

    For quick copying of the files, there is an utility when starting the game: on the license’s screen you can press Circle button if you want to copy the content from dev_usb/heretic to the location of the game in the hard disk (/dev_hdd0/game/HERETIC01/USRDIR)

    You can use a FTP program for copy HERETIC.WAD too.

    For the HEXEN files its similar to the previous method, but this time, its required HEXEN.WAD that must be copied to /dev_usb/hexen (for all the installations) or /dev_usb/homebrew/Hexen (Open Manager) or to /dev_hdd0/game/HEXEN0001/USRDIR (HDD).

    And you can copy on the license´s screen the content of /dev_usb/hexen to /dev_hdd0/game/HEXEN0001/USRDIR pressing CIRCLE button

    HELP SCREEN / CONTROLS

    At any time you can press START button for open the help screen (the game is paused at this time). The help screen show the game controls and pause the game.

    With SELECT button you can enter on the Main menu. The another buttons are these:
