DooM Legacy 1.29 pre-release 7 is now available. This version is
available for Dos, Windows and Linux. This has became possible thanks
to the help of new members in the team. I would like to thanks them
for the good job they did during this last month ;-)
Ok, it's not the final one as I have announced it before. We had a
big problem, but now, it's fixed and thus this is the final step
before the final version. Only bugs will be fixed for the final
version (no new features added). That's why, we'd like you to test it
and report bugs you may find.
What's new in this version :
- Support for TeamTNT's Boom port
- More realistic coronas
- Better network support
- A lot of bugs fixed
- Much improved Linux version
- Much improved dynamic and static lighting
- Better decals (aka wallsplats) but still a problem with clipping.
You can download the new version here :
The source code is also available at the file releases section:
Just to remind you:
This version improves the 'Open entry' code a lot (ok, it's not yet
perfect, but it's playable, particularly if you have a good
connection) and has all the features from the previous betas posted
here. This version works with Software mode and Glide/OpenGL/MiniGL
mode, in the Linux, Dos and Windows environment. There are still some
remaining bugs we want to fix before final, but this version should
be considered as a lot more stable than previous ones. Finally,
before being able to use fully OpenGL DooM Legacy, you must have a
main IWAD file (like doom.wad, doom1.wad, doom2.wad,...) included
with an original version of Doom (shareware or commercial).
Thierry, for the DooM Legacy Team
