Hexen for Mac
For Best Performance Installing Sound Manager 3.1 or later in your Extensions folder will increase performance on PowerMacs. (This is automatically done by the installer) In the Sound control panel, be sure to set the Sound Out rate as close to 22.050 KHz as possible for best performance. While Hexen can be played directly from the CD, performance will suffer. For best performance, install the Hexen.WAD file onto your hard drive. (This is automatically done by the installer) Virtual memory can degrade sound quality, although RAM Doubler does not seem to do so. In modem play, be sure to disable the modem's error correction and data compression features. These will significantly slow down play. Killing other applications will also help speed up modem play. Known Conflicts & Problems Using RAM Doubler 1.6 (and prior versions) with System 7.5.3 may cause severe problems. Using either product alone will not cause problems - crashes only occur when RAM Doubler and System 7.5.3 are used in conjunction. Connectix, makers of RAM Doubler, has a patch available that solves this problem. Hexen 1.1 is not guaranteed to work correctly with PWADs designed for other versions of Hexen, including 1.0 and the demo version. Once a net game is in progress, the user cannot start another net game. The user must quit Hexen and run it again to do so. Canceling out of a net game startup will quit the application. The Aaron extension may cause graphic glitches in some dialogs.
