    PrBoom 2.1.0 Released


    Linguica

    After a long, erm, pause in development, PrBoom v2.1.0 has been released over on the PrBoom homepage. This release is the result of the merger between PrBoom, LxDoom and lSDLDoom. While you should go look at the website for the list of features, this version of PrBoom, notably, greatly improves compatibility with original Doom levels and demos. Almost all original demos, and all MBF demos (included the Tools Assisted Speedrun demos) work. The Linux RPM and the Windows ZIP are now available, and the source will follow shortly (BUT IT'S GPL! OH NO CALL THE FSF!). For those of you not in the know, PrBoom originally was simply the Win32 version of Boom, but now it has become so, so much more.

    MBF demos at high-res? Wasn't the point
    behind MBF to be more classic Doom style
    without all these new-fangled gadgets? Oh
    well, playing back already played games in
    high-res can't hurt I suppose.

    Does anyone else notice that it already knows
    your username and pass these days on DW's
    comment threads? Probably a cookie on my
    computer, but that sure feels trippy. Esp.
    since it had the right username but the wrong
    pass!

    does anybody know how to get it running in fullscreen, but with a lower resolution, i'd much rather have a large blocky display than a small, detailed one

    If you read the docs, you will find a command-line switch named "-fullscreen", or you edit the boom.cfg file.
    I will make fullscreen the default in the next release.
