What is the latest, but most stable zdoom and deepsea out???

Post by Anonymous »

My zdoom works good for most of the time, so I am happy with it. But my Deepsea is rather old.(about a year or so) It's not a matter of where can I find this stuff, but a matter of what is most relable. Any discussion will be appreciated.

Well, the latest DeePSea is 11.82a, but 11.83 is almost ready for distribution. It features support for the new Zdoom "any texture/flat/sprite" system (been in for a couple of versions, but 11.83 supports TX_ textures too), the offsetting of hi-res textures by either world values or texels (again, something new in the latest Zdooms). Plus there quite a few other improvements, options and changes that have been incorporated since 11.82, and loads since the version that would have been current about a year ago.

Have a look at the DeePSea site ( http://www.sbsoftware.com/ ) and have a browse through the news items to get an idea of how many things have changed or been added. There's a lot.

Some of my favourite things that have been added over the last year or so:

Automatic support for DECORATE lumps in a WAD.
Improved handling of prefab copy and paste.
Changes to the checking/ searching system.
Better undo support.

thanks Enjay. I saw your site, and I am trying to mimic the wads. Not too successful yet, but I am hoping an upgrade of my editor will help me out there. Again, thanks for your advice.

Shouldn't try to mimic other peoples styles, you should try to develop your own... it's what makes us individual...

I am not trying to mimic the way he builds, that isn't what I meant. I am trying to copy his linedef techniques. If you don't know, Enjay has a site full of example wads. The example wads are what I am trying to mimic, not his level wads. jesh, get off my case.

Mimicking another's style is really not a problem. IMO, the opposite is true.

This is one of the great ways to learn things for beginners. If one is lucky to latch onto a good model, learning a great style is a big help later on.

Applies to many other things too: arts, programming, building stuff .. you name it. No faster way to learn how to do it at least 1 right way.

So be proud that you are learning from the best.
