prboom - dumb question
« on: January 14, 2010, 07:46:32 pm »
EDIT: Jeez, what a twat. Please move this to its proper place in the Dingux boards. Thanks!

So... I see on the wiki that the person responsible for porting prboom (although I'm pretty sure it's actually a prboom+ port) onto Dingoo was joyrider, who has apparently decided to stop developing for the platform.
Well, er... is it still being worked on? It was desperately in need of some polish control-wise (mostly, I admit, since I changed the default controls to mirror the way I play on the PC), especially regarding weapon switching (suggestion: if possible, key combinations could be added in to make this a bit easier... say, press select+a to bring up shotguns etc.).
I'm pretty sure Eternity has a 'next/prev. weapon' function, and that's SDL based and Boom derived, so that should be fairly simple to hack into the Dingoo code at least. Possibly.

There is a modification of joyrider's prboom port called czdoom, made by CongoZombie.
It introduces a better keyboard mapping, including weapon switching ability, as well as other fixes.
You can get it from the Dingoo file archive
