So, I downloaded Doomsday Engine 2, installed it and got to the 2-panel-startup screen.
Here I chose the folder containing my Hexen WAD files which led me to this screen:

The manual was no help from this point on, since it mentions things like a “game library” and other UI elements which I can’t find.
When I click on the package it leads to the following screen.

Clicking on “play in” does nothing except displaying a small black rectangle. There is a “add to” button which I used to add it to the entry labeled “Hexen”. This doesn’t seem to be doing anything either.
With no other apparent options, I tried launching it from the command line which yielded the follow error: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g97bko1fy8qpbls/Screenshot 2018-10-25 15.05.40.png?dl=0
What does that even mean? Couldn’t find any answers in the manual or in this forum.
At this point I really miss the sleek old Snowberry frontend, where Hexen just worked at first try. 😢
I would really appreciate any help with this issue. I miss Hexen and would really like to see the new deng version.
