PrBoom 2.5.1 OS4 ================ 1. What is it? -------------- PrBoom is a version of the classic first person shooter Doom, originally written by Id Software. It provides a program to play Doom levels, but it doesn't include any levels itself. You need one or more .wad files that holds all the data for a Doom game.. Fortunatly this Amiga OS 4 version comes bundled with the Freedoom full game (http://www.nongnu.org/freedoom/) and so you are able to enjoy a free Doom-like experience without installing any additional files. (Pay attention that freedom has been less tested than Id Software's Doom episodes) 2. AmigaOS4 fixes and features : --------------- NEW in 2.5.0 - Auto resolution for aspect ratio on big resolution - Fix for tranmap on the progdir now - Added a big cache on OpenGL for the big resolution (1280x800 1280x960 is playable in my SAM now) - Fix render software For new render: gl = gamma opengl = no gamma 8 = 8 bits 16 = 16 bits 32= 32 bits - Added a prboom-game-server for playing with you amigans and pc machines NEW in 2.5.1 - Add function -save for destination of PATH SAVING GAME - Fix MIDI files support (big work, re-writing MIDI convert routine) - Add support PNG with version PNG 1.2 - Fix initial "insert volume usr:" requester NOTES: This port has been tested on AmigaOS 4.1 on AmigaOne G3 / G4 and SAM EP440 667 Mhz and SAM Flex 800 Mhz 3. Installation --------------- Extract the PrBoom package in your game folder. The game will use the freedoom.wad file provided in the archive but you can place the original .wad files from Doom, Doom II, etc. in the same directory of the executable. A shareware version of the Doom .wad can be downloaded on the Id Software server at the following address : ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/doom/doom-1.8.wad.gz You can extract the file in the PrBoom directory with unarc. PrBoom OS4 now supports MIDI files, you must install the GUS SoundFont package and Timidity. Both can be found on OS4Depot : http://www.os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=audio/play/gus_soundfon t.lha http://www.os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=audio/play/timidity.lha 3. How to play -------------- Start the game by double clic on "Start-PrBoomGL-os4" icon. Setup your keybindings and game configuration. Then, well, it's Doom we are talking about! Please note that to disable the forward/backward mouse mouvement, you should set the vertical mouse sensivity to the minimum in the options. Additional parameters can be added by editing the launch script named "Start-PrBoomGL-os4" or directly the .cfg file. For exemple to start the game with the Doom II files, a PWAD modification named predator.wad and begin at the level 4 of the episode 3. Prboom.exe -iwad doom2.wad -file predator.wad -warp 4 3 -save PROGDIR:save Note that you can also tell the game where he has to store your save files. For more informations about parameters, please check the prboom.html provided with this package. To initiate the server : in a SHELL, type "prboom-game-server -s 3" (s is for skill) or double clic on its icon. To start the clinet : in a SHELL, type "prboom.exe -net hostname" or enter the parameters in Start-PrBoomGL-os4 script. 4. Known Bugs ------- - There is a problem with the sky texture in OpenGL mode. (It seems to be a bug in OS4 OpenGL) - MIDI does not sound like the original, due to GUS soundfont - In OpenGL mode, the screen seems darker than in others (non-OpenGL) modes 5. Cheats --------- The following codes are for a "QWERTY" keyboard : idchoppers: Gain chain saw idclip: Toggle player's ability to walk through walls iddqd: Toggle "invincibility" idkfa: Gain 3 keys, all weapons, full ammo, 200% armor Additional codes can be found in the file doomcode.html (files are copyrighted leidmester.com and www.classicdoom.com) 6.
