Hey is it easy to port Doom to the DC? I was just thinking if it was how about we just make an easier/better version of the game and it supports modem and broadband. Kill two birds with one stone ;)

Yeah, but we're to old to do it so fast! lol

Lets define the same identical wad files, as Impulse told us in his experience ...

Bob, what doom dc version do you have? That's the problem, some build variations...

What about picking a version and posting that version as "the" online version?

I just downloaded the basic Doom for Dreamcast and did nothing beyond burn the iso. Impulse and I stayed up one night to try to connect back when the original release came out.

im pretty sure i gave impulse a CDI i compiled based off the "shitload of mods" release on TiZ, but its the online compatible port

ask impulse to look around on the dc-talk file manager, it was like early 2016

Keep us posted so we can all have the same version and possibly add this to the online list.

Honestly I think at this point the best way we can get Doom working online to to use a more current source port with better networking. I've been looking into porting Crispy Doom 4.3 to the DC using a bastardization of Crispy code and Chilly's code from 2010. I've never done DC programming before nor done any sort of porting so the progress is slow but I'm confident it can be done. If we could distribute a .cdi with this and freedm.wad we could facilitate easier online play among the community rather than everyone trying to burn their own copy and hoping their .wad's match.
