Description : One level for any boom compatible and
limit removing ports.
PrBoom-Plus or GZDoom are recommended.
To play this PWAD file, unzip it into the
directory with your PWADs then start:
glboom-plus.exe -file epic.wad -complevel 9
(g)zdoom.exe -file epic.wad
Do not play map05 in the current prboom
(up to 2.4.8 for now), because of:
a) All existing versions of prboom are buggy on
levels with big open areas - precision problems.
The latest Eternity release (3.33.33) also can't
handle map05 correctly - the same precision
problems. Use the latest SVN alphas.
b) The current glboom-plus (126.96.36.199.beta) is much
faster on levels with sectors which have too many
lines. I got 80 fps in glboom-plus instead of 50
in glboom at map05.
c) Vanilla GLBoom doesn't have an option for
quality rendering and it is very noticeable on
some levels, especially on the big tower at map05
and in the second room at map03 - big white
strips and dots on corners. The effect doubles
on ATI cards. Light sky is a headache of
prboom. So gl_render_precise should be 1.
I hope this variable will be removed in the
future versions and quality mode will be forced.
Note: gl_depthbuffer_bits in glboom-plus.cfg
should be 24 or 32 to avoid some rare small
