yeah well I'm not saying the Saturn version is better or worse technically than the jaguar version, just saying that, because I had the Saturn version first and got used to that version, I tend to prefer Doom with more music/atmospheric sound... I will still get this and enjoy it if I can, looks good

Current the way the game functions is that it has the wad file itself (which is flashed to a skunkboard or could be on a cartridge already) and the code portion is uploaded to ram via skunk or bjl. Only way to run the game would be to have a skunk or a physical copy of the game which is possible.

Ill be releasing the rom file for free so you can burn a cart if you'd like for yourself. WE probably wont offer physical copies for sale as im sure we'd end up stepping on someones toes somewhere...

Anyhow the network code has been tweaked but not thouroughly tested. I cant say it will fix the problems and never have network errors but the tweaks that were made should definately help stray from them. We've also alloted for some "slop" if you will, for latency (internet based games) which we are going to be testing out more soon. This isnt a final feature at all but is being explored so you can give your friends a run for their money in console deathmatch.

Along with the multiplayer options being tested and explored we've added pro controller support for the left and right bumpers to allow for strafing. This should make the game a little more fun to run around and control, however this comes at a small disadvantage of re-mapping the weapons layout on the keypad. This also gains an extra FULL time weapon as well (ability to switch between chainsaw and fist, instead of just chainsaw after picking up)

We are now taking submissions for levels if you would like to contribute to the game. To participate, please download doombuilder from http://www.doombuilder.com and use the shareware WAD file from doom to create your maps. Please note that more complex and larger than original maps will cause the game to slow down. Eespecially areas with high sector counts and alot of Lindefs.  Large open areas are not friendly sometimes either.

A good rule of thumb is to use the original doom levels as a guide to see what can and cannot be done. more "BARE" levels does result in faster gameplay and better framerate.

Anyhow if you have any questions about level submission, send us an email on the site and we'll get back to ya.

No problem! Glad to have people who are interested in hearing about it :)

Yeah we arent going to do a physical release. We are giving it away for free due to the main fact that its just a conversion, with only 25% of our own art. We arent able to make anything off of it, which makes the time and effort building them a waste of time sadly. But when we release it Im sure many will be able to burn it to a cd, skunk, bjl.

look forward to seeing this then, just a little unsure how I would get it working on my Jaguar, will it work if I burn a cd of it or does it have to be this "Skunk" thing or a cart? I can't remember what the Skunk thing does  :-[

The Skunkboard is a flash cartridge that you can load ROMs onto via USB.
