Doom64EX

Post by Janitor » Sat Jul 12, 2008 23:56

I am not the author of this, but it's good to keep the Doom community informed. Now without further ado:
Doom64 EX is a free clone of the Nintendo64 game, Doom64 (developed by Midway).

The goal is to perfectly re-create Doom64 in every way possible and to support Win32 and *Unix platforms.
The Doom64 EX engine is based on the Doom3D source port.

I am quite happy to announce the first public release of Doom64 EX. I wanted to make sure everything is in a stable state before I make a public release, however this release is not official.

I am seeking feedback for what everyone likes, what they don't like, and what they like to see improved or enhanced. Though do not expect massive/overhaul changes or updates. Keep the feature suggestions realistic. I am also seeking those to point out any serious bugs as well.

Please take the time to review the readme on how to setup D64Ex and for its known issues.

Edit: Now at version 1.1a which fixes two major flaws (Hectic crash, and a typo in the Mancubus attack pointer where it fails to invalidate a target).

Enjoy

I've never played the N64 version of Doom... and I have to say, after playing around with this a bit, it's definitely interesting.

It seems this port has some features not present in the N64 version; I'm definitely glad they're there.

Besides that, 'nuf said. I like it.

Too bad it's 35 fps (at least I can't get higher) so it's a no go for me. :(

Too used to having the framerate uncapped? =P

Try disabling the music, that fixes my framerate issues.
