    Default Call for testers: dhewm3

    Heya,

    I started poking at the DOOM3 source a while ago, with no idea what I'm ending up with...
    It's still in its early stages, but I think I already got to a nice state which might be of interest of others.

    So if anyone cares, I'm interested in feedback, testing, bug reports and fellow hackers to improve this code base.

    Check out https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3

    Are you trying to use custom assets?
    Are all pk4 files present and up to date? See here

    Doom -> Dewm, mixed with my nick. Just because of the lack of a better name.

    The pk4-files came from the 3 cd set.

    Edit: Now i have installed the files from patch 1.3.1 and the game seems to run now.

    I started playing with wayland, and fixed/improved the SDL2 wayland video driver.

    Since capturing videos with wl is a breeze (and we all love videos): preview

    The video quality and FPS on Wayland is stunning. I have NEVER seen OpenGL-intense gaming (presumably on an open source graphics driver?!?) with such a smooth framerate on the free desktop. I think you've just hit a milestone, buddy. Major kudos to you!

    I'll be trying to reproduce your results on Ivy Bridge shortly (this weekend).

    What hardware were you using for this?
