ZDOOM CLASSIC 2.1.4a MARCH 19 2018

ZDoom CLASSIC 2.1.4a is a fork of ZDoom 2.1.4 (https://github.com/rheit/zdoom) for Windows 9x and 486 machines.

Changes/features since 2.1.4:

  • Adjusted scaled status bar for 4x4 low detail mode.
  • Fixed savegame comment size for the 640x400 resolution.
  • Added Deejay's par times for Thy Flesh Consumed.
  • Added support for older versions of DeHackEd patches.
  • A few more official fixes.
  • Changed savegame list order, now they are sorted by slot number instead of alphabetically.
  • Added new 3x2 and 4x4 low detail modes.
  • Increased size of the savegame comment area.
  • Added Windows 8 detection.
  • Added early Direct3D renderer and a display menu option to switch between d3d and ddraw.
  • More modern default keyboard layout.
  • Command versions of the original Doom cheats.
  • Added buddha cheat.
  • Render cull options (sprite and wall distance) to increase performance.
  • More ZDoom patches (mostly up to date with ZDoom 2.1.5).
  • Now compiled for pentium architecture (but i guess performance on 486s will not be affected).
  • Added video menu options to change fullscreen display bits for compatibility and disable widescreen aspect ratio correction.
  • Some more official fixes.
  • Includes some later fixes.
  • Compiled for 486 architecture.
  • Added a new quad horizontally and double vertically mode from ZDoom LE.
  • Added pixel doubled and quadrupled lowres directdraw modes from ZDoom 2.3 for more recent Windows versions.
  • Engine defaults changed for 486 machines.
  • Added some missing video settings to the display options menu.
  • To set the default video mode on slow machines sometimes you need to press enter twice.

Minimum estimated system requirements are: 486DX4-100, 16 mb of ram, 1 mb svga card and windows 95.
Tested on a Pentium 90 with 32 mb of ram and a trident 1 mb graphics card on win95c, i get 38 fps @320x200.
This is intended for vanilla levels and old mods from 2006.

For modern windows i recommend CoolSoft VirtualMIDISynth with the following soundfonts: Roland SC-55, Yamaha DX50XG and AWE64 Gold from https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=45600.
A good alternative is the Yamaha S-YXG50 Portable VSTi software synth at http://veg.by/en/projects/syxg50/.

NOTE: On windows 8 and above trying to go fullscreen on some systems when using ddraw you may get a black screen, a batch file (RUNME_WIN8_1ST.cmd) is included for convenience.
A DirectDraw to OpenGL wrapper such as DXGL for GL 3 cards should fix the problem, or just use d3d.
