More ports!

Recommended Posts

Is there any other source ports where you can look ALL THE WAY up and down besides Jdoom?

you can't look straight up and down with Doom Legacy.

Also, how come with legacy, Doom2 skies are full, with like, tops and stuff, but for the rest of the games, the skies are just stretched?

Bashe are you playing in OpenGl? If you play in opengl you can look straight up and down. In software that isn't possible with any port.

No I don't have openGL.
That's why I can't play Jdoom, and I'm missing out on the Doom64 TC!!!

Ah, that explains it. Yeah you need hardware excelleration in order to get 180 degree mouselook. Sorry.

Where can I get acceleration for my OpenGL?
Can I download it somewhere, or does it have to be bought?

If your graphics card can't do it you'll need to buy a new one. Almost every graphics card sold in the last 2 years (or even more) has OpenGLĂ– support. What kind of graphics card do you have?

You see, I have a laptop that I play Doom on.
So mine must not be that good.

BTW, in ZDoom, it goes pretty slow with only 640x400!

I can't use my uber cool PC because:
1. it isn't really mine
2. my dad won't allow me to put it on.

Sorry.

Sorry, with that system you'll have no chance at all to use OpenGL. If it can't even run ZDoom decently in 640x400 it simply doesn't have enough resources for it.

I kinda have kinda good news, though.

We have a spare PC lying around and my dad is vaguely thinking about letting me have it. He'll give me the old GForce 3 card if he does.

That would be cool, but it may not happen.

Can I say jDoom Environment Pack?

You can have all the Sky tops, bottoms and besides with this pack that has high quality skyboxes for jDoom (even if I do say so myself :) ).

Wrong! It's possible with Vavoom.

I can use Vavoom, but it goes 0.00000000000000000001 miles an hour at 320x200!!!

Holy crap!

That's because Vavoom uses a polygon based engine even in software mode. In other words: It has nothing to do anymore what is generally considered 'software rendering' in Doom terms.
