Why GZDoom?

Post by Rachael » Thu Jun 16, 2011 21:10

If you had to pick 3 things that makes you use GZDoom instead of ZDoom... what would they be?

I'm getting "the submitted form was invalid" when I try to submit my votes. :?

I think what I like most is 32-bit rendering, customizability, and compatibility.

Dynamic Lighting - because they're cool if used well
32 bit rendering - waaaay better than sticking to a 256 color palette
Hardware accelerated - because it performs way better than the software renderer

I loosened the security settings a teeny bit, does it improve anything? Please let me know.

Been getting that issue randomly for a while now. :(

><

I don't know what the problem is but it's been there since almost forever. I'm thinking of just starting with a fresh copy of phpBB. The only mods on it so far are just silly things I've put in but it's possible I've messed something up along the way. :(

I was able to vote. Don't know if that's because I have admin rights or not. Possibly related, the form let me select more than three options. I didn't post more than three options but, from what I can tell, I would have been able to.

"The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again."

For reference, I picked Dynamic Lighting, 32-bit rendering, 3D models.

Up until recently, GZDooM was my choice over ZDooM because of 3D architecture support. I still continue to use GZDooM instead of ZDooM for wad development, mainly because I've sort of gotten the hang of GZDooM stuff, and I find it simpler to stay with it rather than learn something new on another platform. [Old dog, new tricks, and all that sort of stuff.]

Got the problem. It's caused by the kind of forum skin you use.

My guess is that Enjay is not using a DRDTeam 2100 skin. He might just be using Prosilver or another one that's compatible with the latest phpbb sofware.

As am I. I have one that templates directly off of prosilver.

By the way, Remmi, thank you for figuring out the problem. :)

Looks like you nailed it. I am using the Hermes skin.

It should be fixed now. Hopefully.

I updated all of the default DRD Team skins.
