Some of you might remember CGA from long ago as being a disjointed, confusing browser-based client, but with the February 2022 update, it’s now a standalone client, and with the most recent update adding mod support for games that support them, it’s the definitive way to play oldschool games online!

Looks almost like a direct fusion of Yang, Doom Connector and Dwango all in one. I’ll have to give it a try some time, it’s always good to have more options for DMing!

Was there any recent ones besides the Discontinued Zandronum and Skulltag?

Of the MP-focused Doom ports, only Skulltag is discontinued - Zandronum, ZDaemon and Odamex are all still actively being developed/updated
