Doom2.exe equivalent source ports

Recommended Posts

In some thread some days ago I saw someone had posted github(?) links to his own and to someone else's source ports that had the goal of being functionally equivalent to doom2.exe

 

Can't find them now.

 

EDIT: They were for DOS.

Boom & Chocolate Doom seem to have the very vanilla functionally.

Out of curiosity, can someone tell me if Boom 2.02 is demo compatible with the vanilla exes?

Sorta. It has a compatibility mode, but it's not 100% precise, AFAIK. I also don't know if it's possible to activate it for playing the game (rather than playing back a vanilla demo).

Mostly, but since it was released there have been ~17 years of work in improving vanilla demo compatibility for source ports, and it obviously doesn't have any of that. There are also some bugs in there.

You can play vanilla demos with it but you cannot record them.

Also IIRC the compatibility mode you get when playing vanilla demos is more strict than what you get with TNTCOMP.
