First-class support for Freedoom single player IWADs #1210

merged 4 commits into from Nov 5, 2019

fragglet commented Nov 3, 2019

Recent Freedoom releases are (90+% at least) vanilla compatible so let's go ahead and mark them as supported.

The Freedoom project some time back set a goal that the project's
single player levels would become vanilla-compatible. This goal has
now been mostly achieved, so that most levels are now playable with
Chocolate Doom. So add the freedoom1/2 IWADs to the macOS launcher.
We previously discouraged use of the Freedoom single-player IWADs
because they were not yet vanilla-compatible and could lead to a bad
experience with Chocolate Doom. This is no longer the case since the
project has converted its levels to be vanilla compatible with
recent releases.
We have been displaying this warning because older versions of the
Freedoom IWADs were not vanilla-compatible, but this is no longer
the case.
FreeDM is more of a niche IWAD, and there's no reason any more that
we should pick it over the main Freedoom IWAD files.

Seems all good to me, and appropriate too (might have possibly been considered with Freedoom 0.11, but we didn't actually have an official stance on the vanilla-ness yet).

Good idea to move freedoom before freedm priority wise!

Thanks folks. I also updated the wiki page; it's a lot briefer now.

@fragglet do you still need this branch around?
