  • Doomsday does not directly support external MIDI hardware. I'm not sure how Windows 10 handles this, but at least in the past I recall it was possible to configure Windows' MIDI output to use an external device in the operating system settings. In D…

  • The future remains nebulous as ever. When it comes to my commitment to Doomsday, due to other time pressures (and to keep context switch costs down) things have evolved into "stint mode", where I focus on Doomsday for a month or two and then swit…
  • Such a combined version exists, but I'm not sure if one can get it from somewhere online. See these links for more info: * https://www.wad-archive.com/wad/Master-Levels-for-Doom-II-(PSN) * https://doomwiki.org/wiki/MASTERLEVELS.WAD
  • Are you perhaps using a modded version that combines all the Master Levels into a single WAD? Not sure what error you're seeing, but currently I recommend playing each of the Master Levels PWADs separately. There is a relevant feature request:…
  • Yeah the server password is only for the admin (Shell connections). There is another cvar in addition to limiting the number of players: "server-allowjoin". Once your players are in, you can set it zero to prevent others from joining.
  • The current design of the server is that only packages that affect gameplay (except IWADs) can be transferred automatically to clients. The idea being that resource packs may be hundreds of megabytes in size, and if each client downloads that muc…
  • persist.pack is created and updated by Doomsday itself, so you can't manually install it. It contains configuration settings like the current game window placement. You could try renaming the "runtime" folder to "runtime.old" and see if Doomsday …
  • Check out the "reveal" console command. Usage: reveal (int) Params: reveal (0-4) Modes: 0=nothing 1=show unseen 2=full map 3=map+things
  • Does your DHMP package work ok in a singleplayer game? The location in the runtime directory is fine. Hmm, looks like there is a bug here that is confusing Doomsday: Could not determine which game to start. Please specify one with the -game …
  • On Windows, Doomsday comes with a music backend for CD drives. This is pretty old-fashioned nowadays; I assume your notebook doesn't have such a thing. If you open Doomsday's Audio settings in the Config ⚙️ menu, there is a subsection for configu…
  • Glad to hear you like Doomsday! The -pkg option is used for loading packages by ID, which in this case would be "com.hiriwa.dhmp". So this should work better: doomsday-server -game doom2 -file ~/.doomsday/runtime/wads/*.wad -pkg com.hiriwa.dhm…
  • Brightmaps are certainly an improvement for the sprites in many cases, for special effects. I'm not convinced that lighting sprites strictly based on sector lighting makes much sense. In a 3D renderer, sprites are billboards so they will turn aro…
  • Can you also make sure that your new NVIDIA drivers are working in some other OpenGL game or app? According to the driver release notes, they support OpenGL 4.6 which is more than enough for Doomsday. The minimum required version is currently Ope…
  • Pro Tip: You can toggle fullscreen mode with the F11 key, it's one of the built-in Doomsday keybindings.
  • .torrent files are just metadata that enables a BitTorrent client to download the actual files. These are used because the add-on files are large and hosting them as direct downloads may cause excessive bandwidth use on the website. Here's one Bi…
  • I agree the renderer should be a great deal faster. However, at this time I'm choosing to use my time to work on the redesigned renderer instead of trying to optimize the old one. It's a bit like choosing to build a nimble speedboat instead of tr…
  • You can enable fast monsters in a custom game profile's settings, but I don't think there is a way to change the ammo amounts at the moment.
  • What operating system are you using? There is the option of changing the music player backend in Doomsday's Audio settings. In general, FluidSynth for music and FMOD for sfx should be quite solid. The alternative is SDL_mixer for both music and s…
  • Glad to hear you figured it out. How about this page in the Manual, though?https://manual.dengine.net/guide/mods
  • Try this: C:\Users\yannara\AppData\Local\Deng Team\Doomsday Engine\runtime For reference: https://manual.dengine.net/guide/runtime_directory
  • The "view-cross-width" cvar specifies line width for drawing the HUD crosshair. Previously, a zero value was allowed, but now it needs to be nonzero. The warning is mostly benign, but you may want to check the crosshair width setting in the menus. …
  • Yes, LAN servers are supported, and no you don't have to be connected to the internet. As @Makaki says, you can always do a manual connection by entering the server's local IP address. I don't recall doing much testing with a direct computer-to-c…
  • Please try the next build of 2.3 (#3331). I've made a change that could fix this issue.
  • I updated the Troubleshooting with this: https://manual.dengine.net/guide/troubleshooting#problems_with_keycontrol_bindings
  • For now the color adjustments only work for the 3D game view. I'll need to think of another way of applying them to the title screen and other views. IMO, the 3D view is where this feature is needed 99% of the time, so having it affect the rest o…
  • I'll schedule this for 2.3 since it's been delayed for quite a long time. * Server action for episode end * Server action for idling without clients There's also a feature request about voting, but the UI implementation is not trivial so it …
  • I did some testing and research, and this may be due to a bug in Windows 10. This article mentions that the API Doomsday is using is affected by a glitch: https://www.windowslatest.com/2019/07/07/windows-10-version-1903-colour-distortion/ I'm run…
  • I'm inclined to think this is a false positive. The contents of the ZIP have not been modified on the server, and the Windows autobuilder is not compromised in any way that would produce infected executables. Also, the ZIP and MSI installers cont…
  • Hmm, that means it was likely not related to Doomsday after all. I haven't changed anything that affects the mouse.
