Hammer of Thyrion is a cross-platform port of Raven's Hexen II source. It is based on an older linux port, Anvil of Thyrion. HoT includes many bug fixes, improved sound and video modes, opengl improvements and documentation among many others.

Hammer of Thyrion Features:
1. Support for Hexen II, Hexen II demo, Portal of Praevus mission pack and HexenWorld.
2. Cross-platform code: Tested on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X and Windows. Also reported to build and run fine on QNX and Nokia N770, N800 and N810. Other unices should also work. Even DOS is supported for nostalgic purposes. There are seperate ports to MorphOS, PalmOS and GP2X.
3. Tested on 32 bit and 64 bit platforms.
4. In-game resolution changing for both opengl and software renderers. Instant fullscreen/windowed toggling on X11 (unix).
5. OpenGL enhancements including multitexturing, glow effects, working brightness control, text and hud size changing on the fly, translucent console background, console background stretching, colored lights and support for external lit files, fixes for texture cache and model mesh cache mismatches.
6. Fully network-compatible with Raven's 1.11 windows version as well as with other Hexen II ports. Can load and play games saved with Raven's 1.11 windows version.
7. The same binary handles both original hexen2 and the mission pack.
8. The same hexen2 binary transparently handles both v1.11 (hexen2) and v1.12 (mission pack) style progs.dat files.
9. Fullscreen intermissions and help dialogs.
10. MouseWheel support.
11. Improvements and fixes to the HexenC game code.
12. Improved sound support: A selection of three different sound drivers (ALSA, OSS and SDL) for Linux. FreeBSD is supported with OSS and SDL, OpenBSD and NetBSD are experimentally supported with sunaudio and SDL.
13. Working music volume controls and on the fly selection of CD or MIDI music.
14. Full user directories support under unix: all users have their own configuration files and game saves.
15. Improved console functionality (inline editing and tab completion), and a maplist command.
16. Ability to delete saved games from within the game.
17. Several hexen2 utilities (hcc: the hexenc compiler, and other mapping tools) are maintained and are being kept up to date.
18. Several hexenworld utilities (hwmaster: hexenworld master server, hwmquery: tool for querying hw master servers, hwrcon and hwterm: rcon tools) are maintained and are being kept up to date.
19. Many bug fixes, security fixes and other improvements.
