    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

    Good job, dhewg! I cloned the git repo today and I was suprised that you didn't remove the cd key check. I don't know if you didn't do it because you just didn't think of it or because you take the same stance as the ioquake3 project. If that's the case, come on, most of us bought the game years ago in a shop or a few months ago on Steam after it was open-sourced (or both like me). This will only annoy potential testers/players and it won't bother the pirates at all.

    At first I thought copying the doomkey file from my Steam installation on Windows partition to /usr/local/games/doom3/base/ would work, but it doesn't. I had to define ID_ENFORCE_KEY 0 to disable the cd key check.

    It doesn't crash for me on my Gentoo 64-bit linux with open-source radeon driver.

    Sounds strange, there's no exception I know of. Got a backtrace?

    That's the port yes - though a friend shot that video (as you can tell it runs pretty well).

    Do you mean the door where the cutscene "took you some time, marine" starts?

    If anyone wants to give it a try, I pushed my changes to the SDL2 wl driver to https://github.com/dhewg/libsdl, branch 'wl'.

    Wouldn't that be a good idea? Not that dhewm3 is a bad name, your efforts are truly great and I'm really thankful for everything you've done.

    Keep up the great work.
    Well, the current name doesn't bother me, and 'iodoom3' implies a connection to icculus.org.

    The question with iodoom3 comes up every now and then, and I think nobody knows.
    Back in december, when I had the 64bit version up and running, I opened a pull request over at git.iodoom.org, but nothing ever happened.
