DaggerXL version 0.197 Released

By on March 16, 2011

If you are a die-hard fan of The Elder Scroll series, then Daggerfall has already earned a special place in your heart. If you are new to the series, you will start wondering why we are so excited and happy about those 2D sprites and blurry graphics of DaggerXL. Well, it’s becase all those games of that era had something unique that most of the latest games lack. It’s like playing GLQuake or JDoom/ZDoom. Or GLHexen. Or even WinRottGL. It’s simply… magic!

DaggerXL is a Modern Daggerfall Engine Recreation for current Operating Systems and hardware – essentially it is a remake in the spirit of a port. It will ultimately fully emulate the game of Daggerfall and then optionally enhance it by refining existing features and adding new gameplay elements that were originally intended. The game will make use of hardware acceleration providing higher resolutions, color depth, greatly improved visibility, better texture filtering, enhanced performance and more. Think of it as JDoom. In addition DaggerXL will support full modability, similar to more modern Elder Scrolls games, using custom tools.

luciusDXL released a new version of DaggerXL that can be downloaded from here. This latest build supports most of the game’s dungeons. If you’re a fan of Daggerfall, you have to download this mod and try it. Let’s hope that luciusDXL will finish his mod in 2011!
