The /newstuff Chronicles #466
subject_119 on Breeze, Bravado & Brave: Three maps for Heretic; we don't have much information about it, not even when it was mapped. The only real thing we know is that it was made in over a hundred hours. I guess those were made back in the day when Heretic was pretty successful, and we still see maps made in those times being uploaded to /idgames. (more)

Freedoom 0.9 released

The new version of Freedoom is ready and available hot off the presses! A ton of major changes have been made since the last version, and the team is happy that they are able to release it.

  • New file names no longer conflict with Doom's. freedoom1.wad is Freedoom: Phase 1, the Ultimate Doom compatible IWAD. freedoom2.wad is Freedoom: Phase 2, the Doom 2 and Final Doom compatible IWAD.
  • FreeDM and Phase 1 have grown out of the shadows of the project and have seen rapid development to place them as equals in the Freedoom project, by efforts largely lead by Protox.
  • New text font from Mechadon to replace the old one in all the menus, in-game text, and status bar HUD.
  • New zombie, shotgun zombie, and assault tripod (Cyberdemon) sprites by raymoohawk.
  • New sounds for the dark soldier (Revenant) by Jewellds.
  • More complete support for Final Doom mods, adding many more textures missing to support mods for both tnt.wad and plutonia.wad
This is easily one of the biggest releases and it really has shaped Freedoom to stand on its own very well. If I may say so myself, I highly recommend checking it out. Download all the good stuff from https://freedoom.github.io/download.html.
