International Doom 7.5 / Heretic 7.1 / Hexen 7.1 (updated June 29, 2024)

Recommended Posts

Phew, it took one extra month in planned two months development cycle, but it is worth it. Doom now have optionally scrolling/flowing liquids on vanilla maps and improved brightmaps. Hexen now have various interpolations, small improvements and tons of texture offset corrections on vanilla maps. Heretic, well, it's fine too.

 

Sorry, I'm not very responsive in incoming feedback sometimes, but this is not the end of the development. Small vacation could be nice, though.

 

Kind greetings and personal thanks to Michael Day (@mikeday) for bits of Hexen interpolation code, Dasperal for keeping co-authoring, and everyone else for the interest!

 

International Doom 5.3 (released: June 12, 2022):

I have updated InterDoom executables in released archives, download links are same. This fixed random crashes on savegame loading, restores proper support for values above 999 in status bar (notably on DBZDOOM2, thanks cubebert) and add better migration mechanism from previous versions of config files (thanks Dasperal).

 

Sorry, it was my bad, release day was a very long day.

Ahah, imagine my face when I tried switching the language in the International Doom, and it switched me from Russian to English, and then back again. I thought it somehow attached to my OS language, which is why only gives me two languages to pick. Then I read the thread.

 

Thanks for a good laugh, had me confused for a minute)))

Sixth anniversary of the project! This is a new major version, with lots of performance and stability improvements, with fully restored compatibility with vanilla demos (complevels 0-4) and 100% original game mechanics, available in one simple menu item.

 

International Doom 6.0 (released: September 16, 2022)

 

Demo compatibility restored

 

Full compatibility with "vanilla" demos now restored. This includes complevel-standards, recorded under original DOS executables and famous demo-friendly source ports like Crispy Doom, PrBoom+ and DSDA Doom:

  • 0 – Doom v1.2
  • 1 – Doom v1.666
  • 2 – Doom v1.9
  • 3 – Ultimate Doom
  • 4 – Final Doom

Demos recorded under Inter-Doom are also playable in respective engines.

 

Optional 100% vanilla game mechanics

 

There are numerous small bug fixes which sometimes affect game mechanics more or less. Some of them are optional, but many are not, and previously was disabled only in -vanilla game mode. Having dozens of micro-switches for all possible fixes was a no-go, so I've added one simple menu item, available in the Gameplay section: «Game Mechanics: Strict vanilla mode». By setting it to «on», all fixes will be disabled for retaining 100% original game mechanics.
No changes will be made to the values of "unsafe" gameplay options, they just be shaded to indicate their inactivity. 

 

In more simple words: if you prefer accurate gameplay, set this option to «on». If you prefer casual gameplay, then leave this option as «off».

Note: while demo playing or recording, all fixes are always disabled for compatibility reasons.

 

New screen renderer: OpenGL ES 2.0

 

Or blitter, or backend, or scaling api, or whatever you prefer, available in the Rendering menu. In practice, it is faster than usual Direct 3D and may give more FPS in both common usage and -timedemo benchmarking. To make sure is it better for your system, you can try to run -timedemo benchmark with both renderers
and see which one is giving more average FPS. Example of benchmarking command:

inter-doom.exe -timedemo demo1

However, it has a notable limitation on Windows OS – it's not very friendly with screen capturing software.

 

Full change log (beware, it's huge!):

    • Objects no longer unlit sometimes while wipe animation of game loading.
    • Safer code.
  • Crushed monsters resurrected by Arch-Vile (a.k.a. "Ghost monsters").

  • Fixed possible automap lines overflow/disappearing near the edges of huge maps (thanks Andrey Budko).
  • Things drawn by IDDT cheat now have their actual radius.

 

 

Small afterword

 

Exactly six years ago first version was released. Not very long time comparing to other projects, but quite a long time in terms of real life. A lot of things happened and changed, a lot of experience gained. This all is for good, because it have to be. I honestly don't know what else to say. :)

 

I would like to sincerely thank my colleagues, Leonid Murin (Dasperal), Roman Fomin and Fabian Greffrath for being nearby. Thanks to Kraflab for creating DSDA Archive which I was using as home theater while restoring demo compatibility (BTW, may I have a VIP ticket?). And of course, thanks everyone who find this project useful!

@blackthorn, thanks! Sure, GL ES will be added to next version of Heretic and Hexen, nothing more than extra menu item is needed. I'm also planning to restore demo compatibility and optional vanilla mechanics as well for these games, but this will take a while. For now, H&H are working pretty well for casual single player, but demo compatibility and strict original mechanics are also a Thing, especially if user want them.

Small point release. Have to say, I was too focused on playtesting with strict vanilla mechanics and even haven't noticed that hitstan attacks were broken in non-strict mode. Oh well, now they are fine.

 

International Doom 6.0.1 (released: September 24, 2022)

Changes:

 

Bug fixes

  • Fixed broken hitscan attacks in non-strict gameplay mode (thanks willsmanic).

Improvements

  • Fixed false positive on Virustotal for inter-doom.com console wrapper (by Leonid Murin (Dasperal)).
  • Improved brightmap of COMPUTE1 texture (thanks NightFright).
  • Better synchronization code for animated textures and flats (thanks Jeff Doggett and Arsinikk).
  • On Linux, binaries now again installed to "bin" directory. Directory "games" isn't recognized by all distros (by Leonid Murin (Dasperal)).
  • Small improvements of texture alignment on Doom E2M4.

Great stuff! Really glad to have the OpenGL renderer available in Heretic now. I love these ports but for some reason I get weird periodic frame-dropping issues with the D3D renderer that I haven't been able to eliminate no matter what I try (vsync on or off, various levels of framerate capping). No such issues with the OpenGL one though. I know I asked this last release, but will International Hexen get an update soon with the OpenGL renderer in place?

Thanks for kind words!

 

@nickxcom, not sure about exactly DR-specific, but Vanilla Doom smooth weapons definitely worth to check out!

 

@blackthorn, that's odd. What is your CPU, video card and monitor refresh rate? Sure, adding GL ES to Hexen is very simple, all I have to do is to add menu item, upper-level code will do the rest. Ideally, demo sync for Hexen should also be fixed as well, but same to Heretic, this will take much more time.

 

Some good news: I was working on quad rendering resolution. AFAIR, it was suggested to different ports from topic to topic, and I decided to try to implement it, and surprisingly it go up pretty quick. First impressions were like "damn, it's impressive!", visually everything almost same in close distance and more sharp in far. And it still keeps some pixelated appearance, which is most important.

 

But I have to make an important note here: it comes with it's price. Can't say it is slow, no, the problem is different - it's "expensive" in terms of calculations. Imagine, double resolution requires 4x screen rendering (doubled horizontal multiplied by doubled vertical), while quad resolution requires 16x (quad horizontal multiplied by quad vertical).

 

Screenshots probably will not show all the difference, but here they are, in 21:9 aspect ratio: original (320x200), double (640x400), quad (1280x800)

Hey there!

Just wanted to congratulate you for the excellent work you've done with all three ports, especially for the Raven Games.

 

I did want to report a sequence break I experimented while playing Deathkings of the dark citadel that I can't seem to replicate in Dsda-Doom and GZDoom. In the second hub, it complains about a script near the portal to Locus Requiescat. Here's the message that pops up in both water valves. Compiled from source for Artix Linux if it helps.

My bad, sorry. It comes with texture alignment fixes - script executable number accidently gets zeroed out. I've merged fix already, but probably this will require level restart via INIT cheat. Alas, my lack of interest for Hexen doing it's bad thing - non-technical improvements which require real playtesting never tested much.

 

Honestly, I haven't though that quadres will have such interest. 😊 Maybe I should publish a small point-release for all three games?

 

Hexen already have GL ES and quadres, along with some rendering optimizations, but restoring demo sync and 100% vanilla gameplay is a long story which can wait for next release. At the moment it is fine for casual playing only, despite of gameplay improvements aren't massive and mostly stands for bug-fixing only, but waiting another 2-3 month for proper release seems to be too long.

 

But anyways, I would like to spent couple days of testing quadres first, just to be sure that everything is fine. It is fine in fact, engine still able to load and render extreme scenes with thousands segs/visplanes/sprites as well as simple levels like on episode one of Doom I. And of course, play through Hexen DK - turns out, released version have soft-lock on Constable's Gate level.

Quad resolution is here and available for all games! It can be set in «Rendering / Rendering resolution», values are:

  • Low: classic 320x200
  • Middle: crispy 640x400
  • High: gluttonous 1280x800

Unfortunately, I was not lucky to make it hot-swappable, so this is yet another feature which require program restart. Not much happened in Doom and Heretic since last releases. Hexen, though, got many technical improvements including OpenGL ES render and assembled fourth weapon widget, but proper demo sync is still pending, it's not the thing that can be done fast, alas.

Thank you for your work on this port. Ever since I've first tried it, it's become my go-to port for playing the vanilla Doom WADs along with any other non-GZDoom WAD. Having already tried out a decent amount of ports, I have to say that this is easily my favorite "Vanilla+" port of them all. I especially like the wide amount of customizations available in the options menu, the great implementation of a minimal HUD (kudos for the idea of making a minimal HUD by simply removing the background of the original one!) and Heretic/Hexen support, the latter being the reason why I had been looking for an alternative source port to begin with.

 

If there's some minor advice I could give, I wouldn't mind seeing a way to choose a PWAD from some sort of in-game menu, rather than having to load it from the command-line. Not that I have any problems with the latter, but it would make for a nice addition if it's not too troublesome to implement.

 

Hope you continue to support this!
