PrBoom+ 2.6.2 (Feb 11, 2022)

Recommended Posts

Well I solved the problem, sort of, but I'm not sure what causes it yet. I'm using software that causes the screen to dim to a sort of reddish/orange color under normal circumstances starting at around sunset (f.lux). After disabling it, the problem stops. However, I still need to manually select the "GZDoom" value even though it is already selected, for it to be applied.

 

F.lux obviously interacts with the software somehow but it's not expected behavior from the side of f.lux (it should not interfere with other applications and it should not randomly deselect gamma settings from those applications). Perhaps there is some system value (or values) that's changed by both the emulator and f.lux.

 

I didn't know before how to change the gamma settings from the menu, I do know now, so I'm good. By the way, before disabling f.lux, changing these values made no difference:

 

useglgamma                        6
usegamma                          1

 

but now they do. For the record:

 

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz   2.81 GHz
NVidia GeForce GTX 1050
Windows 10

 

Thanks

Glad the issue has a workable resolution. Since that application is closed-source there is not much to go on. It sounds very much like conflicting settings are being applied, just as you suspect. Avoiding that program while recording seems like the best option here.

- sort resolutions by width first and associated fixes
- consider the case of only one available resolution
- fixed integer overflow that caused jagged motion after running for about 26 minutes
- UMAPINFO: fixed par times not loading for finale levels
- generate mixer buffer size from sample rate
- fixed mouse stuttering with uncapped framerate and VSync
- convert uppercase shortcut keys from UMAPINFO
- added complevel hints
- UMAPINFO: fixed nextsecret inconsistencies
- free temp footer buffers
- fixed mid-texture judder when upper and middle textures overlap
- optionally include wipe effect in video capture

+ console output

Isn't `colormaps[0]` usually a direct mapping to the palette colors? 

There's no guarantee about that, actually.

 

Take Doom's COLORMAP and look at it with a hex editor. You'll notice that while for the most part, the first 256 bytes are counting up in increments of 1, as expected, there are a few outliers. For example, #168 is 4. #190 is 45. #191 is 47. #208 is 4 again, and so is #224. #240 is 207. And lastly, #247 is 0.

Yeah, but those are just duplicate colors in the palette. The code to generate the colormap presumably just chooses the first available color that matches each index so you get this result due to duplicates.

Until you change the palette without updating the colormap.

Hey, I have a problem with the source port. I've noticed that the mouse movement is a lot better with OpenGL than Software, it is much more precise and snappy unlike with Software mode which feels too floaty, but when I change it to OpenGL, my pc starts to make a high pitched noise, the lighting gets all fucked up and is much too dark, and when I look around the walls are weirdly distorted. Any idea what could be the cause of any of these issues? If you need any technical details I'll give them to you.

Technical details and screenshots would help. Also there are multiple OpenGL lighting modes; if you can post your PrBoom+ config that would help as well.

All other lighting modes other than GLBoom make everything extremely bright and washed out, but for some reason the screenshots don't capture it or the wall distortions. But here is how the lighting is with GLBoom lighting mode selected.doom14.png.2dc63a6b6245dac493bbf2dfb73d10b9.pngdoom13.png.9c4c0ade507439db89592deb5d4da891.png

And do you want the config file?

 

Yes. What are your system specifications? Have you tried adjusting Gamma correction (default switching F11/F12)?

 

Have you tried disabling "uncapped framerate"?

Adjusting gamma correction fixed the darkness problem, and capped framerate fixes the wall distortion. My OS is Win 7 x64.

Also for some reason it says I can't make any more posts today, so I have to edit this one.

Edited by abc : I made 3 posts and can't make any more per day?!?!?!?!?!

Ok - the distortion you're talking about sounds like tearing; unless you are dissatisfied you may keep framerate capped to resolve this. If not you may try enabling V-sync, and/or try tweaking V-sync settings in your drivers if you have those.

 

The gamma switching fixing it seems like a settings change issue of some kind; if it's resolved with adjusted gamma then just continue to use those working settings.

Is there some way to return the bug that caused the Chaingun to make the firing sound twice while only having 1 bullet left in its chamber?

I'm asking because I want the game to behave exactly like the classic Doom engine on complevels 2 and 3, and I REALLY don't appreciate PrBoom+ fixing random bugs like this without the simple option to turn them back on...

Not really. This was probably fixed across the board since it doesn't affect demos. It's not really sensible to muddy up the codebase with an option for this fix since most people don't mind. You'd probably need to fork the codebase and change it yourself in a new build. This particular change doesn't seem like it would be too difficult tho if you cared to go that route.

dsda-doom still seems to preserve that bug, so maybe try that. That said, Chocolate Doom/Crispy Doom would be a better starting point for a "pure" vanilla experience.

Nevermind, I figured it out. There is an option in the compatibility settings titled "Retain quirks in Doom's sound code" that brings back the buggy Chaingun sound among other sound related things. I still find it kind of weird though how it isn't activated by default when using complevels 2 and 3, but at least there's an option, so I take back my comment.

Will PRB+UM ever get MBF21 support? I'm aware it's in maintenance mode but I'm not really sure why it shouldn't be there otherwise.

So there's an issue with PrBoom+ that's been annoying me for quite some time. Whenever you only have an IWAD loaded (e.g. "prboom-plus.exe -iwad DOOM -complevel 3") and wait in the title screen until a demo plays and eventually ends, the original credits screen that's supposed to appear gets replaced with the PrBoom+ credits screen. I'm assuming this is a bug, since this doesn't happen whenever you have an additional PWAD loaded that includes a custom credits screen. Oddly enough though, the bug doesn't happen whenever you just drag & drop the IWAD into prboom-plus.exe. Would be awesome if you guys could fix this in the next update!

There's no bug here; this is just how PrBoom+ behaves. If no CREDIT lump is loaded then a PrBoom+ credit screen is shown.

Realistically, no. Is there any reason not to use dsda-doom where mbf21 support is desired, though?

That's intentional, it replaces the credits screen if the CREDIT lump comes from the IWAD (M_DrawCredits), but allows PWADs to override it with their own. The CREDIT screen is displayed later in the sequence regardless, though - just wait a couple more demos (this is the sequence defined for each game mode). If you drag & drop the IWAD onto the executable, you're loading it as a PWAD, so the PWAD rules would apply.

Thank you for the thorough explanation, I understand now. I agree that if a PWAD doesn't have a unique CREDITS lump, the PrBoom+ credits should show up after every title screen demo ending. I think that it would be a good idea though to have an exception built in for when ONLY a commercial IWAD is loaded, that the CREDITS lump from said IWAD is then always shown after every demo ending, because in a sense, the IWAD's CREDITS lump is its own unique lump. Alternatively, there could also be a miscellaneous option to toggle whether or not you want the IWAD's credits to be replaced by the PrBoom+ credits.

I'd imagine something like this makes more sense:

I think it would make more sense to show the CREDIT lump after the first demo, then the PrBoom+ credits after the second in all cases.

Showing off your ASCII art skillz in ENDOOM, I guess? That was the lump all that drama was over, right?

Has translucency on this port always been universally active regardless of complevel? I'm seeing translucent projectiles in -cl 2-4.

 

I'm an idiot -- I apparently requested this to be the case over a year ago on GitHub but completely forgot about it. I thought the compatibility option wasn't working, but it just requires a restart.

When I open prboom+ it tells me that it is infected by a virus, I should worry about that.

thanks greetings

Its a false positive. No need to worry
