HacX

HacX was, for all intents and purposes, a Doom 2 TC (Total Conversion). It was made by Banjo Software[?] in 1997, and featured almost an entirely new set of graphics and some minor adjustments to the original Doom 2 code. HacX was made possible when id Software released the Doom 2 source code. HacX uses Doom 2's engine.

HacX itself was generally unsucessful; by the time it was released, the superior Quake I engine that had just came out made the Doom engine pale in comparison. Public interest for Doom and games derived from it was, effectively, dead; even though HacX was a decent TC, it arrived on the market too late to become a success.

It was originally priced at $15 and was useful, at least, for stealing sprites and other graphics to create your own TC/PC (partial conversion).

There was also a HacX 2 in the works, but it failed due to a number of problems.

HacX is now being distributed for free on its website.
