Mint Doom is a Chocolate Doom fork which aims to fix a lot of warnings and unify formatting while still staying true to Chocolate Doom's aims as well. Chocolate Doom is a source port which aims to behave as closely as possible to the original DOS Doom executables. Chocolate Doom aims to: * Be compatible with DOS Doom demos * Be compatible with DOS Doom configuration files * Be compatible with DOS Doom savegames * Be compatible with DOS Doom bugs * Provide the same "feel" as DOS Doom (display and input should behave the same) * As far as possible, provide all the same features that are available using the DOS version. == Setting up gameplay == For instructions on how to set up Mint Doom for play, see the INSTALL file. == Configuration File == Mint Doom is compatible with the DOS Doom configuration file (normally named 'default.cfg'). Existing configuration files for DOS Doom should therefore simply work out of the box. However, Mint Doom also provides some extra settings. These are stored in a separate file named 'mint-doom.cfg'. The configuration can be edited using the mint-setup tool. == Command-line options == For a complete list of command-line options, see the CMDLINE file. == Playing TCs == With Vanilla Doom there is no way to include sprites in PWAD files. Mint Doom's '-file' command line option behaves exactly the same as Vanilla Doom, and trying to play TCs by adding the WAD files using '-file' will not work. Many Total Conversions (TCs) are distributed as a PWAD file which must be merged into the main IWAD. Typically a copy of DEUSF.EXE is included which performs this merge. Mint Doom includes a new option, '-merge', which will simulate this merge. Essentially, the WAD directory is merged in memory, removing the need to modify the IWAD on disk. To play TCs using Mint Doom, run like this: mint-doom -merge thetc.wad Here are some examples: mint-doom -merge batman.wad -deh batman.deh vbatman.deh (Batman Doom) mint-doom -merge aoddoom1.wad -deh aoddoom1.deh (Army of Darkness Doom) == Other information == * More information, including information about how to play various classic TCs, is available on the Chocolate Doom website: http://www.chocolate-doom.org/ You are encouraged to sign up and contribute any useful information you may have regarding the port! * Mint Doom is not perfect. Although it aims to accurately emulate Vanilla Doom, some of the behavior of Vanilla Doom can be very difficult to reproduce. Because of the nature of the project, you may also encounter Vanilla Doom bugs; these are intentionally present; see the NOT-BUGS file for more information. New bug reports can be submitted to the Chocolate Doom bug tracker on Sourceforge. See: http://sourceforge.net/projects/chocolate-doom * Source code patches are welcome, but please follow the style guidelines - see the file named HACKING included with the source distribution. * Mint Doom is distributed under the GNU GPL. See the COPYING file for more information. * Please send any feedback, questions or suggestions to email@example.com. Thanks! # vim: tw=70
