What is the best Source Port?

Recommended Posts

Uhm, there is nothing you can call "best source port", cause they are good to different things.

Do you have any idea what flame war you have just ignited? Everyone here likes a different source port! There'll be mass chaos and an eventual post helling for the arguing that will occur here!

So for my answer I way that you should download every port and play every wad. That way, you're playing all the doom you can.

I hope this doesn't turn into a big argument.

No seriously, go browse the ports section and try a few fro yourself, to see whatyou like. If you must know though, some of the more popular ones are:

Zdoom
JDoom
Legacy
Prboom

If people were serious enough about this then a flamewar would result, as the title is best source port but people would just put down their favorite port... then misunderstanding starts... war was beginning...

Anyway, I like different ports because of the different kinds of support they offer. My favorite overall, especially recently, has been Zdoom, especially because it has a large number of pwads and projects made exclusively for it. Prboom is nice for its compatibility with the original executable, which makes demo recording with it more desirable. I used to like Jdoom a lot, but the only thing I would use it for nowadays is the Doom 64 TC (quite a compelling reason to hold onto it).

The people who have made the Korax mod are using Vavoom for their next project.

Zdoom is the best for playing Zdoom-specific wads.

There, a statement that is difficult for anyone to disagree with. Oh hang on, there's ZdoomGL. Oh bugger. :0

Vavoom's level lightmapping was a really nice effect (especially on map 29, 21 and some others).... but the port had too many problems for me to want to use regularly. It didn't even draw sprites correctly on my system. Korax mod was great though, so maybe they'll do something decent with it.

My favorite source port is Edge, but I can't honestly say it's the best source port around. Not yet anyway, maybe after Edge 1.28 gets released...

This thread doesn't look so bad yet. It's just some friendly opinion exchanging.

Of course, nobody has to ask me what MY favorite ports is.

OK, so Boom? All I know is Eternity sucks and every day I feel so glad that I'm not the guy that made that. Aren't you glad you didn't make that crapfest of a program?

I should probably add a few million :P's to this just so I'm clear, but apparently there's a maximum character limit of 50,000 or something.

I know, worst joke evar, but even if it was Lee Killough I'd probably say something about ZenNode being teh bast nadeboldar evrar!
