ZDOOM LE 2.8.1d APR 08 2018

ZDoom LE (Legacy Edition) is a fork of the ZDoom 2.8.1 maintenance branch (https://github.com/rheit/zdoom/tree/maint) for Windows 9x and old machines.

Changes/features since 2.8.1c:

  • Added unexploredsecretcolor variables to mark undiscovered secrets differently in the automap.
  • Several bugfixes.

Changes/features since 2.8.1a R2.3:

  • Changed savegame list order, now they are sorted by slot number instead of alphabetically.
  • Fixed security issues (execution of unsafe commands and ACS stack checking).
  • Lots of official bugfixes.
  • More compatibility fixes.
  • Compiled for pentium again just in case.

Changes/features since 2.8.1a R2.2:

  • Added new 3x2 and 4x4 low detail modes.
  • Increased size of the savegame comment area.
  • Fixed crash with textures larger than those supported by the hardware in the D3D backend (affected BD v21).
  • Added an option to add elements to an existing options menu.
  • Added four text colors: ice, fire, sapphire, teal.
  • Several more old bugfixes not present in the maint branch.

Changes/features since 2.8.1a R2.1:

  • More modern default keyboard layout.
  • Command versions of the original Doom cheats.
  • Render cull options (sprite and wall distance) to increase performance.
  • Fixed skies during the wipe and wrong weapon scale in savegame pic for low detail modes.
  • added MF7_NOINFIGHTSPECIES flag.
  • More iwad compatibility fixes.
  • Some important ZDoom fixes not present in the maint branch.
  • Updated Game-Music-Emu library.

Changes/features since 2.8.1a R2:

  • Fixed bug introduced in the maint branch, A_SpawnItem was broken.
  • Fixed the timing of Heretic's lava damage.
  • Added some wad compatibility fixes mainly for the Doom II, Doom and Heretic iwads.
  • Added WadSmoosh iwad support.

Changes/features since 2.8.1a:

  • Restored Direct3D renderer.
  • Fixed sky scaling in low detail modes.
  • Added video menu options to switch between d3d and ddraw and set ddraw display bits for compatibility.
  • Usernames for ini files are back on win2k and later.
  • Proper startup banner modification.
  • More engine defaults changed for performance.
  • Some more official fixes.
  • Now compiled for pentium ii architecture but there's no performance difference.

Changes/features since 2.8.1:

  • Includes later fixes from the maint branch and some more.
  • Compiled with pentium architecture optimizations.
  • Low detail modes have been restored. Added a new quad horizontally and double vertically mode for a somewhat retro look, you can get the original low detal mode from 640 and it's playable even @320. Unfortunately it gives the same performance as doubling horizontally and vertically.
  • A more retro looking startup console.
  • Engine defaults changed for slower machines.
  • Runs on windows 95 but without the startup log.
  • No direct3d nor xinput joystick support, only classic directdraw mode.
  • Uses a modified openal compatible with windows 95 as sound backend.
  • Compiled without fmodex support but should work, it's untested though. Fluidsynth doesn't work with openal and could even crash on certain machines so no fluidsynth support either.
  • Hardware midi doesn't work on modern windows versions, it does on win9x.(*)
  • If you experience sound problems on very slow machines try reducing the sound channels to 8.
  • To set the default video mode on pentiums sometimes you need to press enter twice.

Minimum estimated system requirements are: Pentium 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 22 fps @320x200.
Don't try to turn on rendering interpolation on a pentium mmx, it's extremely slow.
On a fast pentium ii Brutal Doom 20 is even playable on simple levels.

(*) 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_SAFE.cmd) is included for convenience.
Some letterboxed modes don't display properly and they might even crash on ddraw.
With old graphic drivers on win9x d3d might crash, update your drivers or set 'vid_forceddraw' to true.
