Chocolate Doom port to 68K RTG
 
I was very bored recently so I decided to do yet another DOOM port (my 4th), anyway this one uses Chocolate Doom and includes ports of ports of Heretic, Hexen and Strife.

I've only had the chance to give them a very quick test myself but they seem to be working okay. No idea of performance on a real Amiga as I don't own one these days but it might be okay if you reduce the resolution back down to the native resolution. Be warned that trying to decompress OGG music files in real-time on an 060 while also playing a game isn't going to be pretty.


Requirements:

1) An RTG Amiga
2) 68060 processor or better
3) 32MB of FAST RAM
4) The original games (or demos)
5) OGG compressed music packs for music playback
6) AHI installed and configured

Limitations:

1) No network or multi-player support
2) No Joystick support
3) No window mode support (during gameplay)
4) Only OGG/WAV music supported


I'll upload it to the Zone here and also to AmiNet soon.

Download -> Chocolate_DOOM


My other DOOM ports:

BOOM AGA
ZDOOM AGA
ZDOOM RTG
ODAMEX AGA
ODAMEX RTG

Definitely :great

Sorry Nova; I still need to try / test this out... I did receive your e-mail ;)

Thanks guys :)

Hopefully it works okay, I haven't had time to test it much.

Hey Novacoder, long time no speak, do you think you will ever do a PPC port now this can be emulated in WinUAE?

Hi mate :)

No I'm still not interested in learning how to do PPC ports, I think PPC is even less relevant today with fast 68K emulators (like the raspberry pi) and FPGA computers.

Ciao Nova, i noticed that by increasing the resolutions the quality of the graphics does not change, also it is not possible to save the fullscreen disabled, i also get error "DEH_Loadfile: Unable to open btsx_e1.deh"

That's because it is only full screen :D

Btsx episode 1 should work, I tried that myself.

I'll try it again later....are you actually trying to load back to Saturn?

Maybe I forgot to update the ToolTypes...doh

BSzili 04 April 2021 08:34

Nice! I think it's time to step up my game.

@NovaCoder

How can we set the "up" and "down" arrows ?
Left and Right arrows works automatically, but not up and down

in chocolate-doom.cfg i see they was set by default as:

key_menu_up 72
key_menu_down 80

What will be the correct settings to use up and down arrows ?

Tested this port of Chocolate also on OS4 and it works! .. only it crash at exit when i close the credits window

NovaCoder 05 April 2021 02:47

You use the included 'setup' program to define your keys :)

They've made this port replicate the original games which had a separate set-up program....

No idea about the OS4 crash on exit, I only test on OS 3.9

There is a native version of Chocolate Doom for Amiga OS4. It is ported by Thematic.

samo79 05 April 2021 22:16

I know that, but that os4 version is older compared to this one :-)

@NovaCoder

Is there any tests i could do to help you verify exactly where the problem might lie?
At the end everythings working, just this strange crash closing the credits window that was opened on Workbench

Just edit the chocolate-doom.cfg and set 'show_endoom' to 0

That will prevent the credits window getting shown

samo79 06 April 2021 04:57

Too mutch easy to be a solution :-)
Already tried aniway, by setting 0 the game window will of course not showed anymore, but crash still .. so the issue probably was not exactly related to that.

(curious side effect, along with the crash i can see that quitting the game will even provoke the removing of my wallpaper image in background)

Oh in that case it's probably the 'closeWB' Tooltype, try disabling the ToolType.

samo79 07 April 2021 13:41

Ok tested, by commenting closewb It solved but only in part. The wallpaper will not be removed anymore, but same crash still ... it happen by closing the game and even when closing the setup window (any changes in setup are by the way saved correctly there)
All the rest seems working fine, just this annoying crash at exit :-)

NovaCoder 07 April 2021 16:56

That's annoying but at the end of the day it works fine on OS3 so this is an 0S4 issue and not something I can fix, sorry.

Estrayk 13 April 2021 22:15

Hello Novacoder. I loooove your ports.
Tested in vampire v1200 and works like a charm.
I've to search some wavs files around the net for listen some music, right?


EDIT: Lets check these: http://sc55.duke4.net/games.php#doom
EDIT2: ok, music it works but.... the fps falls a lot. Even with wavs.
Will be cool a native MIDI support or doomsound.library support someday.

Thanks :D

Yes maybe possible.

BTW the readme contains links to all the OGG files you need for DOOM, STRIFE, HEXEN and HERETIC :)
