Best Doom port for 040?

I've just fitted an A3640 (25mhz) in my A4000. I currently have ADoom, which runs OK but was just wondering if there's a more efficient port out there. I know of Boom and ZDoom, are either any better? Or are there others?

Apparently Doom Attack runs a bit quicker but you can also try in ADoom to run in Low Detail to speed things up and/or with a slightly smaller screen area.

Thanks Steve, will give it a try! Latest version I can find is 0.8 from 2004:

Any newer releases of it you know of?

Wow it seems to fly even on an 030 according to this video!

I couldn't get it to work on my A1200 but I can't say I tried very hard.

Cammy posted a thread here on EAB about it a while back if you can find it with a search should be good reading.

I see you're looking for an 060, Boom is great on 060 if you get one.

The other is if you have RTG in your A4000 is AmiDoom (Based on ZDoom) by NovaCoder, there is an 060 / AGA version and an 040 / RTG

The 040 / RTG version runs sweet on my A4000 but I have the WE040 which is much quicker then the A3640.

Well I got Doom Attack running, it definitely runs at a better frame rate than ADoom, although with some slight glitches. Should tide me over until I get an 060 But still keen to hear any other views on the best version.

I think the best choice (at least for me) for 040 AGA is DoomAttack. Boom is nice but you cannot jump there. For 060 there might be better ports. A gfx card changes things again.

If you have RTG then maybe ZDOOM, otherwise DoomAttack is probably best.

060 for AGA, 040 for RTG (same as ZOOM).
