Commercial version of Hellbender. A 3D space shooter.
The game can be running, just launch hellbend.exe on the CD. Uncheck the "Fullscreen" and load the game. The Joystick can be used without problem. I've tested the Sidewinder 3D Pro and it works very well.
Use Software emulation for 3D, with a "normal" PC you can use all graphic options to High without lag.
I've tested only MIDI music and it works.
What does not
Installation does't work. Will start the wine debugger. But the game can be played without install.
Direct3D is always broken, the game send this message:
Your 3D adapter does not support these required Direct3D features:
- Disable triangle culling
The sound is always desynchronised with the actions (ALSA and OSS).
Fullscreen doesn't works very well. Better for use the windowed mode.
What was not tested
I've not tested the network (multiplayer).
Hellbender is a DirectX 2.
