Does this work on Windows 7?
Hi, I'm considering getting the Heretic + Hexen Collection but I'd like to know whether they work in Windows 7 and what, if anything, will need to be edited.

They run through dosbox here on steam, so they work fine. But you can make the games feel much more modern using Zdoom sourceport and putting the wad files over in that program. It enables better graphics (view distance) since you can use full hd resolution. You can also edit FOV, mouselook, jumping and crouching if that is your thing.

I bought the bundle a couple of days ago, and I can't stop playing Hexen though Zdoom. The nostalgia is great, and the gameplay is still well beyond most modern games.

Sorry for a late answer, most people use the other forum for Hexen: beyond heretic it seems.

Hexen 2 is the one that feels the oldest of all the games, but it works fine. Put +mlook into the autoexec file in the data1 folder in the games directory, if you like aiming with your mouse and looking around.

I hope this helps, any questions are welcome
