Will GZDoom Ever Come To Retropie????
Because theres some map/mod sets out there
That i want to play but its for gzdoom only which sucks :(
What you guys think???
@retrofreak89 I think if you want something bad enough you'll figure out how to do it ;)
@retrofreak89 what game is it. Tons of gzdoom games work on zdoom.
@edmaul69 Its a mod like trailblazer and guncaster and the russian Its like brutal doom it changes the weapons and such but in the info it says works only for gzdoom..
In tried it anyway but im not sure how to install these pk3s i only know the level wads lol
@retrofreak89 you add the pk3 files the exact same as .wad files. In the emulators.cfg file you add -file /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/doom/NameOfFile.pk3 just the same as wads
Got curious and tried to make this work as well but without luck. If you succeed please explain to me how you did it. Thanks
here's the correct link:
Edit 2: performance is meh. I just successfully compile a modded Zandronum and (maybe) Doomseeker. Standby
Zandronum AND Doomseeker both work on the Raspberry Pi3!!!!!!!!! (with the caveat that Zandronum is a modded version?). I can't connect to the x86 servers because they are running a different version of Zandronum, but hosting Raspi/Arm specific servers should work fine. (Zandronum will compile on other arm devices. I'm going to try it on an Odroid C2 after I backup my current build).
French dude's Arm Zandronum instructions:
(archive so it doesn't get lost: https://archive.fo/BtPYx)
(I compiled the current release, not developmental)
Other notes, I couldn't get GZdoom to run from command line, same with Zandronum using the GL renderer. Software renderer in Zandronum will run from the command line, so a RetroPie script should be simple.
@jcook84 damn im like a super noob at this i really want to get this to run maybe you can give me steps so Its easier for me to understand what to do??
The reason i want to do it is because some mods like Valiant run rly crappy on zdoom..
I think it requires diff source port
I had no luck trying to configure it
Maybe u know some trucks to get zdoom to run better? Im already using lowest resolution lol
Stock pi settings BTW
Does zando port run better than zdoom?
Would love to know how u did it heb
Does it use mods/levels as well?
I just played Valiant on Zdoom. It worked well, so it's probably just some settings that need tweaked. That would be much simpler than trying to compile GZDoom or Zandronum.
@jcook84 he doesnt have an issue in valiant until later in the first level close to the end of the level. i cannot completely confirm or deny if i can replicate his lag issue. i had a moment where it dropped to 12fps but only for a few seconds since my rockets blew everyone the heck on up. i need to see if i have a save file from earlier to retest after i try finishing the level to see if i have issues later on in the level.
Using the latest release of Valiant? I ran through the the first few levels without any remarkable performance issues. (as an unrelated aside, it seg faulted Prboom for me after the test tubes open in level 1-1)
@jcook84 when was the latest release? Are you playing on default difficulty? I didnt have an issue yet except for 12fps for like 3 seconds si i have to finish the level and retest. Playing less than the default difficulty im sure you wont ever have an issue as its an issue with how many people spawn. I still need to test further for him but this weekend is busy for me.
@jcook84 also you said pr-boom. Are you playing it onpr-boom or zdoom?
What script did you use to get this work with valiant.wad?
This is getting frustering for me...
How the Heck are you guys running Valiant So smooth?
For me during the first level when you reach outside for the first time just a bit after that you Will face there hordes of monsters there is super laggy for me like my aiming will be all stuttery..
Alot of parts in that map make me lag especially outside...
Inside is completely fine
I thought it was a SD card issue So i bought a Samsung evo+ that didnt help
I thought it was a AC adapter issue So i bought a 3amp Samsung AC still didnt Fix it..
Not sure what to do im even running the lowest resolution oh and my pi and zdoom are updated..
Whats causing this
@edmaul69 yes please do so...
go to the part when you first reach outside then Just a bit ahead you will face these bunch of monsters and a couple large ones outside on this upper platform it will lag like crazy.??
If you can just play the first whole level and let me know how it went
@jcook84 well for me it works fine inside buildings
But outside lags for me in Valiant
Idk what to do anymore ..
Below i wrote what i tried to fix the issue
Non of them helped
@edmaul69 i hope this link works So u can show you where i lag exactly
Ok between min 7 and min 8 or so do you see that area and all those monsters there outside?
Thats the part exactly where its pretty damn laggy..
@retrofreak89 yeah the two cannon guys starting at 7 minutes wasnt an issue. What difficulty are you on? Default was in the middle somewhere. I chose the difficulty it was selected on when you start a new game.
