Announcing GZDoom++, a fork of GZDoom for Unix users!

Postby libremafia » Sun Sep 23, 2018 10:46 am

I apologize greatly for posting in General, I'm a new user so I'm not allowed to post in Software and Ports.
GZDoom++'s main feature so far is the complete removal of telemetry (d_anonstats.cpp) from the code.
Currently, I only plan to support Unix, although the fork is so basic right now that it can probably run on Windows and Mac.
I also plan to use GZDoom++ as a ground for esoteric features that would never be accepted into GZDoom.
I have one problem, however; I've ran out of ideas. I have no idea what to do next, which is why I'm making this thread.
Does anyone have any ideas to add to this new-fangled source port I've created?

I've moved the thread to where it belongs.

...On a different note, though, why post anything if all you've done is remove a feature that is 100% clear about what it does and can be easily opted out of?

So the main feature is the removal of inactive code, and you don't know what to do next? Okay.

I did this mainly to learn how to code in C++. I'm sorry if this project is stupid, I'd rather have the feature completely removed from the code itself.
