None, unless I want to play one of the rare maps that are exclusive to other source ports.

Anything else than ZDoom (and/or offsprings thereof) is against the religion.

Check this out - http://risen3d.newdoom.com/ (yay finally working links). Plays stock DOOM, BOOM and MBF levels with the least number of visual glitches for many trick maps common to many GL ports. Install the model packs to get the full experience :o Takes a bit longer to load. Use -NOMD2 to get faster load times and compare sprites to models.

And play this level http://www.sbsoftware.com/files/XtheaterIIIRISEN3D.zip to compare. No slopes compared to the original XTHEATERIII (for ZDOOM or ZDOOMGL), but graphics noticably better. I converted this back from HEXEN to DOOM format, so there might be some areas with glitches. Hope not :roll: (other specific files at http://www.sbsoftware.com/download.html

Please be sure to use -maxzone 80M when you play this with RISEN3D. There is a special sound control keyword that will keep it from working with ZDOOM. Not sure that's still required? Stuff is always changing :D

ZDoom is my port of choice. I use it for testing vanilla things and whenever I recieve a new wad.

I only use other ports when I get to review a newstuff wad that needs another port (like the Legacy map I played a few hours ago). If something doesn't work in ZDoom (and doesn't require a specific port), I try Legacy next. (as non-Legacy wads tend to behave themselves on my system)

I use ZDoom/GL almost exclusively. Sometimes I like to play around with Vavoom and PrBoom though.

When you take into account its centrality between the great European powers and its proximity to both the Atlantic ocean and Mediterranean sea, by location alone Lisbon is unquestionably the greatest port of them all.
