Krisitaka presents DOOM PROJECT, an excellent CoinOps 2 Add-on, based on the 2015 Doom Mega Project, whereby 500 remixed variations of Doom were compiled, this is the top 20 versions from it, including “Doom Raider”, all compiled for playability on CoinOps Next 2 with an Xbox 360 controller.
The work was long and problematic, more than a month:
– understand the execution mechanism in order to isolate each game
– add dlls to fix problems (mouse problems and other)
– solve display problems by upgrading the versions of the graphics engines used
– remap the keys for a better game.
– add recognition and controller mapping
Each game has its own config: its own folder.
I say this because in the Doom Mega Project Ultimate pack, several games read the same config file.
When writing 20 times to a config file, video parameters, key assignments, HUD options, Player Name and color, 16/9 ratio 4/3 ratio. It really created bugs that were too weird and it drove me crazy.
And automatic saves at the end of each level on the same files for 500 games is rubbish.
You can imagine that to have more than 500 games in a pack, you unfortunately have games with only one level, a multiplayer map or additional games abused with 10,000 monsters on the screen. lol
My 20 best games chosen are therefore all complete games from the universe Doom, Doom ultimate, Doom II, Doom TNT, Doom Plutonia and are all (for me) very well done.
Many games are offered to you in FHD resolution.
Some are in lower resolutions and are optimized to work with these resolutions.
I want to say that all of the games in this compilation are magnificent when compared to the PC version of Doom from the past.
This pack was created for first generation Doom fans, not for those using the latest versions of GZDoom, Brutal Doom, latest maps, mods, latest flashlights and latest special effects. (level’s windows lol)
Clearly, these games do not necessarily run on the latest 2020 versions of the GZDoom graphics engines.
they are fluid, graphically beautiful and pleasant. they will run on a low PC in FHD without problems but also on more recent config like my 2018’s config (ASUS ROG G20CB => i7 6700, 8go ddr4, SDD and Nvidia GTX 1070 Founder Edition)
It was hard to choose 20 titles out of a 100ene very well. I will probably release another pack with the other 20 best games if I have good feedback: positive feedback telling me that everything is working fine.
To those who know GZDoom: wanting to upgrade GZDoom to a more recent engine on the games in my pack will not be of much use: I obviously tested and the game is no longer smooth or real problems appear.
However, if you get there without denaturalizing the game, please send me a message in MP @krisitaka or add a comment on this torrent
You will find in this pack an Excel .xlsx file with the list of games, their config path, the gzdoom engine and the resolution proposed by default. I also put a pdf file for those who do not have Excel.
For one game : 11.Doom II MSX Project > it’s hard because reload weapon isn’t automatic.
The preview videos of the 16 FHD games were recorded in 4/3 1400 * 1050 format in order to have the best possible rendering on Coinops. the HUD may not be representative (HUD adapted 16: 9)
Finally, you will find 4 png files:
– the first is a screenshot of the keys configured (globally) in all the games.
– The second is a screenshot of the keys configured for DOOM 64 EX (Number 6) and by the way, the mapping controller is adapted
– the third is a screenshot of the keys configured for Brutal mode (this mode is present in several games)
– the fourth is the configuration of the keys on an xbox360 / xbox one controller. for 06.DOOM 64 EX, it’s not the configuration ^^
This is the third pack that I am releasing on the Next 2 platform. The first was the fairly complete and operational compilation of the SNES MSU1 2019/2020 games, the second was a Steam compilation of the best Genesis games in unzipped format.
My first two packs have been made available on Arcade Punks.
