(For D-TOUCH) How To Update Your PrBoom+ to 2.5.1.4

Hey guys!

Ever wanted to update the PrBoom+ in D-Touch to latest version (2.5.1.4)?

Here's the way!

 

What do you all need is :

  • D-Touch 4.1
  • PrBoom+ 2.5.1.4 files
  • Any IWAD

You can get D-Touch at Amazon { Sorry, no link:-( }

Link for PrBoom+ 2.5.1.4 :

https://sourceforge.net/projects/prboom-plus/files/prboom-plus/2.5.1.4

You can get Doom, Doom II, Final Doom at the internet or download freedoom in D-Touch.

Step 1 : Click on the link above.It will bring you to PrBoom+'s download directory.

Step 2 : Click on win32 file (See below)

Step 4 :Go to your Download folder and unzip the file.

Step 5 : Go to Beloko/Doom/Full . Search for 'prboom-plus.wad'.Delete it.

Step 6 : Go to your freshly extracted prboom-plus-2.5.1.4-win32 folder then copy 'prboom-plus.wad' and paste it to Beloko/Doom/Full folder.

Step 7 : To know if your PrBoom+ has updated or not, go to options.The  fonts should be different with the original Doom (If you are using FreeDoom,it is harder to know because FreeDoom has it own fonts).

It should look like below:

 

Original Doom:

The file prboom-plus.wad is just a resource wad, which can be compiled with or without propietary Doom fonts (Beloko chose with). That will not update, in any way, the binaries themselves.

Not really. I watched a video about Prboom+ 2.5.1.3 and the fonts are same as the original Doom. Then I watch Prboom+ 2.5.1.4 and the fonts are same as above. 

Thank you for the reply.

All you are doing is updating the resource wad. You aren't actually updating the binary with any of its changes.
