    ZDoom 2.8.0 and ACC 1.55 released


    Csonicgo

    After two and a half years (and on the Chinese new year), a new release of ZDoom has been bestowed upon us, with a new ACC to go with it. Significant changes include:

    • A native backend for OS X
    • SDL2 backend for Linux, with OpenAL support
    • Better MIDI support, with nostalgic options aplenty
    • New ACS functions, like DropItem and DropInventory
    • Arrays are now supported at the script scope
    • Extended compatibility options
    And much more. Grab a copy on ZDoom's download page.

    Has it really been 2 and a half years? I can remember the last release as if it was only yesterday for some reason, anyways it's good to see it is still getting updated.

    Optimizations for the Raspberry Pi?! ;)


    Oh yes. There are still a few limitations (Running in a window will crash the game, textured automap and node generation still fail) but for the most part zdoom runs very well. There is a compilation error that pops up with later versions of glibc, but commenting out the offending code is more than enough to fix it.

    Well ZDoom and GZDoom get updates nigh-constantly, it's just that Randi finally declared things fit for a stable release!

    Upon compiling, I get this on the Pi 2:

    Upon compiling it on my 64-bit Debian Laptop (using installed 64-bit fmod) I get this:

    Since corresponding GZDoom builds have been released, shouldn't the ZDoom wiki change GZdoom's status to "2.8 branch"? Normally I would do such a thing myself, except that no account can be created for whatever reason.

    2.8.1 will be released sometime today, or whenever... Randi hasn't gotten to adding the download links yet.

    No ACC for Linux??  Boy.... that's sad...

    (I have had many trouble compiling stuff from source code, so a prebuilt version would be better for me)
