Doom runs YOU! (Using GNSS (="GPS")-receivers to "run" Doom)

Postby GNSS-Stylist » Tue Oct 13, 2020 5:27 am

Hello,

I was experimenting with high-precision GNSS (="GPS")-devices when the ultimate question raised its cacodemonish head: "Can it run Doom?" Answer: Yes, but you need to run too:

Some links if you want to build something similar:
For sources follow the links above (branch "DoomRunsYou"). This is a dirty hack that only works on Windows (at least for now). In addition to HW, those programs mentioned above are needed for this to work.

Thought that someone here might be interested as I used GZDoom as a basis for the modification. It goes without saying that this silly experiment would not have been possible without some open-source source port.

Impressive as hell, good job. :D

I laughed so hard on the speed-running part.

That deserves a Caco/Mockaward for most creative use of running Doom (Although the Doom Chip is technically far more interesting).

Please make a Doomworld thread on this aswell, before i have to! What a creative idea and execution on a legendary meme.

I don't have an account there and tried now (twice) to unsuccessfully create one (confirmation mail never arrived) so maybe you have to. :)
And thanks all for your comments. Makes running in the field with this contraption feel worth it. =:)
