    Chocolate Doom

    Thank you very much!!! I'll try to compile latest (stable) version. ;)

    Chocolate Doom

    Hello and excuse me for my "newbie" question. I'd like to enjoy Chocolate-DOOM on Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian Stretch LITE (so, no X environment and no SDL2 acceleration out of the box). I can't precisely understand if the SDL2 branch is "the way to go" now on RPi (eventually I'll need to manually compile SDL 2.0.8 with hardware acceleration in framebuffer) or if I can install the SDL1 version and still have all the code updates in terms of gameplay. Another question is: what are dependancies for chocpkg and where can I find a command example to install Choco-DOOM on RPi? Thanks!

    DOOM Eternal Gameplay Reveal Impressions

    My impressions: overall, like DooM II, Eternal seems a bigger "more of the same" brother of the first chapter, and that's OK because DOOM 2016 was great. ;) I like the environments but this time my personal acceptable limit of "cartoon-style" was reached. I'll surely look for one of the alternative renders in the engine to make it darker and less colorful. I DON'T like the "new" design of: - Mancubus: in DOOM 2016 its reinterpreted style was "charismatic" as much as that of the Revenant. Maybe this new version is more faithful to the '90s, but aestetics evolve, and the final result seems to me a generic, homemade 3D render from some kind of GL_DOOM mod (sorry). - common Zombies: again, 2016 design was darker and more interesting IMHO. But I love that new Zombiemen! - Winged-imp: dunno why, but I really can't stand this one... I find it generic and out of context. - Baron of hell + Wolverine + flames? BURP. Don't get me wrong, I'm really picky here and my general feeling is positive on DOOM Eternal (I'll surely buy it on day one). But I still hope that Id Software will somehow polish this cartoon-style, and at the same time recover some very good DOOM 2016 monster design. Everything else: can't wait! :D

    Chocolate Doom

    Thank you, but I'm on Raspberry Pi (Raspbian Jessie). It's the same?

    Chocolate Doom

    Hello, on YouTube there is a video of Chocolate DOOM running with Don Allen's Timbres of Heaven Soundfont: I think it's great and I'd like to use it (I'm on my Raspberry Pi). I downloaded the 7zip archive that contains a .SF2 file, but I can't understand how to get it working with ChocoDOOM (ver2.3.0). Any hint? Thanks! :)
  6. Hi, I'm setting up a small BBS in my spare time (Mystic on RPi) and I will have a section dedicated to Classic DOOM. I have already customized a script that lists currently active chocolate-doom servers, now I'd like to add some other resources that could be somehow useful for vanilla DOOM or that have some kind of "historic" value. So I'm looking for TXTs (faqs, walkthroughs, ASCII, ANSIs etc.) that would be nice (or funny, or typical of 90's DOOM mania) to put in this section of the BBS (of course credited) like the "Unofficial DOOM Specs" mentioned in this page. Any hints? Thanks :)

    DOOM on Raspberry in 2016 ...which way?

    Maybe this could help: there is a Quake 1 port optimized for Raspberry that runs at 60fps@1080p even on a RPi 1B thanks to Open GLES. It's called Qurp and its source code is here: https://github.com/welford/qurp Maybe it could be of any help (I'm not a developer). Thanks

    DOOM on Raspberry in 2016 ...which way?

    Hi Rachel, I was going to point you in this thread on RPi forums when I read this great news: so does it take advantage of hardware acceleration? Does it run in pure CLI? Thank you very much for all your work (and that of dpJudas!)

    DOOM on Raspberry in 2016 ...which way?

    Thank you very much for your feedback. Latest stable release (SDL1 version) of Chocolate DOOM still runs very well on RPi, so IMHO it could have stayed in the Raspbian repository until V3 (SDL2). Really, it would be nice to have the opportunity to easily install Chocolate DOOM and ZDOOM on Raspberry via apt-get (from official Raspbian repository, custom repository, or even via a slimmed version of Retropie-Setup-like script). These two source ports run very well, but since installation is uncomfortable this leads many users to older ports, often without documentation. Which is a shame. ;D

    DOOM on Raspberry in 2016 ...which way?

    I tried yet PrBoom Plus (it's even in Raspbian repositories) but aside from a VSync issue, it does not support Hexen. IMHO actually the best ports on Raspberry Pi are Chocolate DOOM and ZDOOM. Chocolate was once in Raspbian repositories too, but it has been removed (I don't know why). ZDOOM can be easily installed (with SDL 2.05) via RetroPie Setup script. I was able to compile also DOOM Retro, but unfortunately I didn't get how to run it in framebuffer mode (no X11, but in plain CLI). Of course it would be great if there was a "dedicated" repository for DOOM source ports on RPi...

    DOOM on Raspberry in 2016 ...which way?

    My quest for the best limit-removing source port on RPi continues, and here there are my findings so far. PRBOOM PLUS In Raspbian repositories PrBoom+ is available. It seems optimized for RPi (GLES?) but I can't understand: - if it's a fork or the official branch - if it does support Hexen - why Vsync does not work, even if it's enabled in options ZDOOM I installed ZDoom via Retropie-Setup script. It requires an SDL library different from the one in official Raspbian Jessie repository, but again with Retropie Setup it's easy to install everything. It runs very well with some tips (e.g. setting resolution of RPi in config.txt at 640x480) and Hexen is fully supported. IMHO this is the way to go, but: - maybe it could run even better with GLES acceleration (or GZDoom with GLES) - it would be nice a script to install or compile it without the need of RetroPie Setup script (and its folder structure)

    DOOM on Raspberry in 2016 ...which way?

    I'm not an expert and I don't know Clang... maybe you could point me to a tutorial? Thanks

    DOOM on Raspberry in 2016 ...which way?

    Thank you. It's based on SDL2.x or 1.x? How can I disable OpenGL? (sorry but I'm not very skilled...)

    DOOM on Raspberry in 2016 ...which way?

    You are welcome! I'm very interested in a DOOM (and HEXEN) source port that could "officially" support RPi, so please if you will continue your work please keep me informed! ;)
