Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

^^ neat! Hell of a lot more fluid than my 386. I don't know how much of that is CPU & how much is new optimizations, but I'm willing to bet my ET4000 wipes the floor with that OAK VGA card, at least. 486 processors are way faster than 386 due to the inclusion of the L1 cache, it's normal to run …

Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Hey there's a thread about the project in Doomworld and you might want to join the conversation. https://www.doomworld.com/forum/topic/116001-fastdoom-dos-vanilla-doom-optimized-for-386486-processors/ Wow this blows my mind, I never expected to gain so much attention! Thank you for notifying me, …

Re: FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

I was wondering how FastDoom is compatible with DeHackEd? You need to specify custom offsets for data for each binary provided, is that correct? This is in the context of the possibility of making a DOS binary for REKKR based on FastDoom. The executables are different so offsets to functions and …

Re: FastDoom 0.3. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

New release!! FastDoom 0.4 Added autorun support (F11 key). Added mono sound support. Enabled with "-mono" parameter. Added low quality sound support (8000Hz instead of 11025Hz). Enabled with "-lowsound" parameter. Fixed Doom 1.9 shareware menu (thanks @MrFlibble !) Included sound library into the …

Re: FastDoom 0.3. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Did you see the release of the source code for the SNES port? I saw some people saying that those optimizations could be useful for older PCs as well because of some of the lookup tables it used, I think? Yeah, what an awesome release!!. It's completely different from the original source code, and …

Re: FastDoom 0.3. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Does FastDoom use chunky or mode X? Just because rendering in the main memory then copying it to the frame buffer by dwords can be significantly faster, especially when a fast CPU meets a slow VGA (like in my 1996/97 system where the AMD 5x86 was seriously held back by a dog slow Tseng ET3000 :D) …

Re: FastDoom 0.3. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Playing with the shareware 1.9 IWAD does not display the third episode's title for some reason on the episode selection screen. I'll check into this, there are more bugs out there for sure. Is Doom faster when it uses a chained hash table instead of linear search? I haven't implemented it yet, but …

Re: FastDoom 0.3. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

So assuming you run this on normal details how much faster is it from stock DOOM? This whole project looks to be very nice, kudos! In my testings using high detail + full screen + status bar and audio enabled it gains around 15% performance on a 486DX-50 with a VLB video card (Cirrus Logic). …

FastDoom 0.4. A new Doom port for DOS, optimized to be as fast as possible for 386/486 personal computers!

Hi everyone!! I'm happy to announce FastDoom for DOS, a port of Doom based on PCDoom by @nukeykt. The goal of this port is to make it as fast as posible for 386/486 personal computers. It includes code from other ports as Crispy Doom, MBF and Russian Doom, as well the original PSX and Jaguar Doom …

Re: VGA Capture Thread

I've tested the StarTech VGA2HDPRO2, and it's really a good product but it has one big flaw... No support for 720x400@70 so no VGA text modes, BIOS or old games (tested only with DOOM). With that resolution the scaler shows an "unsupported" message, but anything above or equal to 640x480 is perfect …
