and

The google drive folder contains beta and other assorted WIP projects, so whatever is there might or not work. Use at your own risk.
uHexen2 there is broken, there's a link somewhere in the forum here to a fixed version.

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but it doesn't work at all for me.  After installing it into the apps directory, it doesn't appear on the GCW main screen in any folder.  I navigated to it using DinguxCmdr, and when I selected it (in the apps directory) to execute, the screen goes black for about 3/4 of a second and then I'm returned to the GCW's main screen.

Are you sure that your opk file is right? Maybe it could be corrupted... you should try to re-download and re-install it...

I did that, and I also changed my ftp program's settings from "Auto" to "Binary", and now it works.  Not sure what happened before.  Cool game!

This looks awesome. I loved those old shooters back in the 90's, R-Type, Gradius, etc.

Just got my Zero and this is the first game I tried on it. Loving it so far, even though I suck at it. I'm so out of practice with these games, if my ten year old self could see me right now he would be laughing lol.

A small update, everyone! There's another one coming soon to remove redundant options (soon as in "whenever I gather free time and patience").
This should both improve graphical fidelity and performance, so be sure to update!

As always, changelog and download link updated.
