Release 1.5.3 of our Doom 3 Sourceport

Needs the original Doom3 (not BFG!) game data.
See https://dhewm3.org/ for more information.


UPDATE 2024-04-19:

The Linux binaries of this release were buggy, see #572.
If you want to use the Linux amd64 binaries provided here (instead of compiling yourself), please use the updated dhewm3-1.5.3try2_Linux_amd64.tar.gz and dhewm3-mods-1.5.3try2_Linux_amd64.tar.gz instead.

To avoid confusion, I deleted the old Linux binary archives from the downloads below.

The only change compared to 1.5.3 is 6daf1e9, and as far as I can tell this bug only manifests itself when compiling with ancient versions of GCC (I use 4.7.2 in my build environment; current Linux distributions ship GCC 9 or newer), so I decided against creating an entire new dhewm3 release for this.


Note: The provided Linux build now requires SDL 2.0.12 or newer.
If your system has an older version of SDL2 (e.g. 2.0.10 on Ubuntu 20.04), you can put the libSDL2-2.0.so.0 from sdl-2.30.1-linux-amd64.tar.gz into dhewm3/libs/ to make dhewm3 use this updated version of SDL2 (2.30.1).

Changes since 1.5.2:

  • Support for gamepads (based on code from Quadrilateral Cowboy,
    but heavily expanded). See Configuration.md for more information. Needs SDL2.
  • Support different file formats for screenshots by setting the r_screenshotFormat CVar
    (0 = TGA, still the default, 1 = BMP, 2 = PNG, 3 = JPG). r_screenshotJpgQuality and
    r_screenshotPngCompression allow configuring how JPG/PNG are compressed.
    Thanks eezstreet (Nick Whitlock)!
  • Fixed problems with lights after loading a savegame (#495)
  • Fix volume of some weapon sounds, like chaingun being too quit (#326)
  • Increase stack size on Windows to 8MB (instead default of 1MB) to make loading huge models work
  • Fixed crash in Radiant Model Preview Dialog (#496)
  • Fix MD3 model support
  • Several new CMake options:
    • To enable Clang/GCC Address Sanitizer and Undefined Behavior Sanitizer
    • Hardlink the game code into the executable (instead of using game DLLs,
      only supports base or d3xp then; needed for Undefined Behavior Sanitizer)
    • Force colored diagnostic output from GCC or Clang (esp. useful when building with ninja)
  • Fix several compiler warnings
  • Added build instructions for Linux (and similar systems) to README.md
  • Added documentation for dhewm3-specific settings (mostly CVars): Configuration
  • Updated stb_image and stb_vorbis
  • Updated minizip (from zlib/contrib) to latest upstream code
  • Added in_namePressed CVar to print currently pressed key/button (useful for binding keys
    in the console or configs). Thanks Biel Bestué de Luna!
  • Updated bundled libs on Windows: OpenAL Soft 1.23.1, SDL 2.30.1, cURL 8.6.0, zlib 1.3.1
  • Linux binary build provided here now requires SDL 2.0.12 or newer (I provide an updated libSDL2-2.0.so.0 though).
    If you compile dhewm3 yourself, older SDL2 versions (and SDL1.2) are still supported (however, SDL1.2 doesn't support gamepads).
