Quake 2 port for DOS! (Announce)

posted by RayeR(R) Homepage, CZ, 15.06.2015, 04:47

A few days ago on DJGPP group Neozeed announced result of his hardwork on porting Quake 2 to DOS/DJGPP. It's still in aplha stage but it's quite usable and stable. I was playing a single player about 1/2h and didn't get crash like sometimes with HXDOS.
What works:
* gfx, kbd, mouse
* networking (wattcp)
* oldsound (taken from qdos)
* bonus-OGG music format support
What doesnt's work:
* video menu dialog - cause crash - is it possible to change videomode via cmdline or other way?
* new soundcard are not supported :( (of course I mentioned about WSS that's used e.g. in mplayer dos port and plays on HDA well)
I plan to load in on my old machine PPro200/192M/AWE64 how fast it would be. I remember that I played Q2 on P166@200 but with 3Dfx Voodoo1...
The story: pt1, pt2, pt3, download binary

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
