  1. FWIW, we successfully use the screen + 1d texture successfully on the Unity version on all 18 million platforms we run on, but we're probably not supporting as old or screwed up machines as some other projects trying it have been trying to support (we're 64 bit only, and Unity probably has high enough requirements to knock out some of the lower end machines.) It was quite a significant speed boost on all platforms, I believe.

    Quake Remastered

    We don't use Steam connections or Steam network services, so it's just weird the way you keep saying it that way. But no, I don't think there are a ton of people interested in custom content on the remaster, they'll more likely just use existing QuakeWorld clients.

    Quake Remastered

    Basically, that CTF map isn't very good, it was included more for completeness sake in the original game, it still worked as a DM map. We ended up having more maps than we were expecting, so didn't think it was worth it to update that map. Dissolution of Eternity contained a CTF mode based on Threewave (that's where the hook model comes from since we couldn't get the rights to the morningstar model) however it was not played very much. We didn't bother supporting Dissolution's CTF mode in the initial release due to time constraints and general quality reasons-- 3W was always much more popular.
  4. Gyro aim works natively on PC but only with DualShock 4. It's just what Rewired supports. Should be able to setup gyro for other controllers through the Steam input overlay though.

    what is the worst censorship in doom

    The H and the heart were def one of the "finalists" (I had like 9 different variations to get rid of the pill at some point) but we thought using an English letter H for a global game would've been suboptimal compared to the green +, which is also used as health in Doom Eternal, I believe. Specifically, I thought it'd be neat if the Hitler change was a reference to what was done in the German version of MachineGames' Wolfenstein games. The logo is the one they use there, and they also removed the mustache. Fitting considering the level was already a Wolf3D reference!
  6. MAP33 ended up crashing the engine and had to be cut, thought it would handle any lump names but apparently not! I've passed this on to the team handling the GOG launch, but don't know if this was intentional or not. Thanks for the report!
  7. Should be fixed now, was unrelated to the name change, and didn't require a new build so there won't be an update pending or anything.
  8. This is an old issue, as far as I know. I'm not able to reproduce it. Seems like there might be a problem with handling error screens, and it works when you play offline. Asking around to see if there were backend changes that are affecting us, but there are no planned new features or other fixes planned right now.

    Patch The Doom 64 Re-releases

    https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1148590/view/3333243235353175643 FPS issues on Steam Deck fixed, along with the weapon sprites. Should be fine on Steam Deck now (only reason it's playable and not verified is because you have to manually pop up the keyboard on the Bethesda.net login modal)

    Doom 64 now available on GOG

    Definitely happening, just don't know when yet.
  11. We didn't do anything to lock down console mods specifically, but they might be .NET serialized files at the most, so it is probably not very proprietary. I didn't think we put the addon data in there though, I'm surprised it's not just a file named 1-15 like on the PC. It'd be silly to spend time trying to add extra protection from jailbroken consoles since they already are able to interfere with your operation at a level you can't control. I have no clue what that stuff looks like on disk though, you don't really need to interact with the filesystem directly very much. RE: SIGIL, there's specific code to handle the Master Levels. There's no specific code to handle SIGIL, as the point is that we don't need to update the game in order to ship new addons. As for the start menu stuff, it was just a decision made out of time. Was easier to just punt you to the Level Select screen which was already data driven, vs making a whole new menu that was un-hardcoded to read the episodes out of DMAPINFO and generate GameObjects out of them. I ended up doing this dynamically in Quake, since the game ships with multiple mods out of the box (the expansions/DOPA/DOTM are all in separate directories). There's no functional difference between level selecting the first map, and hitting new game, it's entirely visual.
  12. I looked into mouse support but it wasn't really working great when I tried it on the Switch, and Unity doesn't seem to support it natively. Keyboard support was (accidentally) left on since the original launch at QuakeCon 2019. Should work on Android though since Chromebooks are supported.
  13. Just popping in to say that we've released a minor update for D64 on PC platforms, but it also fixes the graphics loading in PWADs! https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1148590/view/3088910094673350020
  14. There's some unavoidable input lag on Chromebook unfortunately, even comparing it to Delta Touch and other native games, I haven't found anything else that offered an acceptable amount of latency. Disabling/raising the FPS limit and disabling VSync will help.

    Doom 1/II on iPod/iPhone is impossible.

    We do support controllers on iOS/Android. Touchscreen controls are always tough, though, especially if you're not used to it. I played many hours of other games to try and figure out what we need to improve our controls. I've gotten fairly decent on HMP and can even beat most of E1 on UV. I think what we have now is pretty damn good, the biggest omission being moving controls around. Not being able to look down makes it a lot easier. You want to be rolling on the tip of your thumb in order for fine aim.
