Hexen requires a WAD from the original game, while Hexen2 was linked against libmad, which was since removed from the firmware due to audio codec patent issues.

Please note that neither of the games was officially released, it sounds like you're messing with work-in-progress ports that aren't end user ready.

Crash log please.

1) In gmenu2x, press START -> Output logs ON.
2) Run hexen2 until it crashes.
3) Launch Settings -> Log Viewer to see the log.
4) Disable the logging with START -> Output logs OFF.

Delete the OPK from the zero and set your FTP client to "binary transfer mode."

It's a shame this one couldn't be released or at least released in it current form as it works great otherwise

Edit: Actually, Now I am going out on a limb here of assuming that the engine is using MP3 playback, Couldn't it be switched for MIDI for the demo or and this for if the person is using retail switch to OGG?

check that your .pak files are compatible, and also make sure they're lowercase.

Using paks from retail Hexen2 disc, and both pak0.pak + pak1.pak are indeed lowercase. The demo "stock" version runs fine, doesn't crash until I try the retail PAKs

hmm, well then. are the .paks up-to-date? this port is based on uhexen2 which likes version 1.11 of the game.
http://uhexen2.sourceforge.net/readme.html

there is a patch program called h2patch3 for updating your .paks

yes, the pak3.pak goes in the same data1 folder as pak0 and pak1.pak.
then you can choose 'old mission' for the regular game or 'new mission' for the portal of praevus.
