I like GZDOOM for the advanced features but I sometimes I like to use PRBOOM+ for its classic limited settings and the nice looking alt HUD, the one with the coloured bars.

I think I stopped using Vanilla Doom when the first GL ports appeared. I don't even use Chocolate Doom to test vanilla compatibility, though I may start soon.

My fave port is Risen3D, which is my main playing and testing port. It seems to be the fastest one on my machine, and never gives me the sense of slight halting I perceive in GZDoom or JDoom. It also looks more "right" to me in brightness, contrast and gamma. I've never had to adjust it, the way I do with GZDoom, which seems alternately too dark or too washed out.

I use PRBoom+ to play demos.

I test all my levels on Risen3D, GZDoom, PRBoom+ and JDoom. I almost never play for pleasure on any port except Risen3D, with the exception of GZDoom, which I use to play ZDoom levels.

Seems PrBoom+ is getting lots of love :)

I don't use Vanilla Doom anymore. As of now, I have myself restricted to GZDoom, although I do use ZDoom when GZDoom lags too much (like on Torm667's "The Refinery").

When the stars align and wind blows in certain directions I will fire up chocolate doom for a bit but other wise it's a non stop Gzdoom party with Mouse look on and auto aim off because not being able to look up and down is dumb.

Nowadays it's called oldschool and it's not dumb --- it's the way it was meant to be.

Why respond with the least intelligent phrase possible? Meant in what sense? One can only think of the voices of Romero and Carmack booming, "here be it, my children, now follow the Way of DOOM or burn!"

It was made that way due to historical reasons and technical restraints. I like vanilla too, because it's fun, minimalistic and stable, but not because of some imperative.

For you guys using prboom+, if a wad requires zdoom, do you skip it? or do you load zdoom?

I'm a bit more extreme because I spend my Sundays at the vanilla temple, yet otherwise the dilemma is similar: I sometimes play port WADs by joining online servers, but leave single player to (limit-raised) vanilla. I guess God doesn't pay attention to the Internet!

Yes, I mostly play vanilla, lots of good megawads to still play too.

I use PrBoom+ for anything thats designed for Vanilla/Boom

I also use Zdoom, but only if the wad is designed for it.

Try as I might, that voice will never be anything other than a nerdy whine in my ears :P

I think the voice of Carmack booming would be more likely to say "okay, you've got the game data and the specs, now write your own engine to play it, from scratch; you have two days".

I can't speak for GZDoom but in Doomsday this typically occurs when a resource is cached that hasn't been precached before starting the map/game. Once all resources have been cached there shouldn't be any stalling. We intend to improve the resource precaching for a future release.

Should be 40 days and 40 nights, alone in the desert where there's no distractions. Just a cave with a laptop, a coke machine, and a nearby oasis with a pizza delivery joint.

Definitely ZDoom, because I'm a total UDMF-whore when I'm mapping. I probably spend as much time in the scripting window as I do in the main view of Doombuilder.

My only qualm is that dynamic lights show up as exclamation marks in ZDoom (sw-mode, obviously), whereas in GZDoom's sw-mode they are simply absent. I spend 90% of my time testing/playing in sw-mode, but I do like playing around with hw features, for those people that might play my maps with dynamic lights on.

GZDoom all the way. I like the OpenGL effects, and all the ZDoom goodies like hi-res modes, free look, crosshair and Heretic support. I'm not a fan of the high resolution textures and polygon models of certain other ports (especially the dodgy 3D monsters).

I've yet to find a decent Doom WAD.
There may 1000's of em, but they mostly suck,
yep I'm sure to be popular for saying that but it's true.

I stick to vanilla Doom because I only go for the best, but if anyone
has a decent Doom Mod they think would change my mind feel free to reply
Total conversions for Ultimate Doom are preference.
