Heracles depicted on a Greek amphora (circa 525-520 BC).
In an article published some time ago we dealt with the figure of Noah, showing how it was likely originated from the superposition of different characters, who lived in different places and eras. This overlap of multiple individuals also involved one of the most important characters in Greek mythology: Heracles . Although his composite nature was already known in ancient times, to this day we don't know much about how it originated. In this article we will therefore try to shed light, as much as possible, on the matter. Index How many “Heracles” existed? The historicity of Heracles The Egyptian Heracles The Greek Heracles How many “H...

Likewise, all other leaves can see this one. I determined this by setting every leaf's offset to -1 in test1.bsp and then noting that the reverse BSP draw now showed the entire level (and...

IMO the 2D BSP and a REJECT lump w/o special effects contains all information necessary to create a valid Quake BSP. We do not need a new BSP/REJECT builder for conversion. Any such converted map will st...
