How long did DOSDoom take?

Recommended Posts

I looked through everything I could on Google and DoomWorld... I was just wondering, from when work began to when it was playable and non-buggy, how much time did that take? I ask because I might be involved next year in a similar project, only in going from DOS to Windows XP and Vista...

DosDoom v0.61 had been released by March 1998, and the source was released in December 1997, so it didn't take very long at all. It only took a month or two for the source code to be cleaned up enough to be considered a "good" port, since by v0.61 DosDoom had moved on to adding new features and stuff.

Hmmm, thanks. That is very heartening to hear, though I assume it will be more difficult to port from DOS to XP... maybe not though.
