The last few times I've played through Doom/Doom2/FinalDoom (using the snowberry dengine 1.6) I've been playing with the Doomsdayfiles/highdetailtextures/library all disabled. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love playing the "old style" doom over and over again with full mouse support! But it would be nice if I could enjoy the higher resolution textures, 3-d flames and torches and all those goodies but when I have those enabled the framerate is unplayable. Barrls of Fun for example goes down to 1 fps.. (I'm running it in 1920x1080) Is this somehow a hardware issue or do I need to tweak some settings to make the game "process" the video properly?
Maybe it's just me be but aside from Barrels of Fun, the fps seems to really take a hit from the various colored/non-colored torches no matter the map. I can turn the flashes/sparks in regards to the bullet hits and smoke trails way up with no problem however. Pretty funny making it look like the 4th of July by shooting the wall with the chaingun. So anyways am I just sol? Won't be able to play the game and enjoy high-res textures/sprites at the same time? Not the end of the world for me just hoping for an extra perk.
Thank you so much for all your hard work!! I grew up on the id/apogee games, and y'all giving this game life on todays technology is a godsend! =D>
