ZDoom Executor new ZDoom (and related projects) Frontend.

Software projects like source ports (3DGE, Eternity, etc), launchers like ZDL, and other useful utilities belong in this forum.
Forum rules
The Projects forums are ONLY for YOUR PROJECTS! If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

Please consider moving your project off SourceForge, and onto another code hosting site like Bitbucket or GitHub.

SourceForge has been caught injecting adware into executables, so downloading things from there is unsafe. Also, its user interface is awful.

I'll have to agree with Argv. But I'm saying this as a user, not as a moderator. :)

Is this some fresh repeat of the situation?
Like, 2016-2017?

The part I am aware of is that SF.net was bought out by some new owner circa 2013 who pushed for that, and after the massive backlash they stopped doing that and sold SF again in 2016(?) to newer-owner who's cleaned up the crap and overall been considered to be doing good job.

(Agreed on the clunky interface, but it /is/ a pain to move providers...)

AFAIK Sourceforge no longer does that. I've downloaded some of my own stuff (and a lot from others) from there and never had that problem. User interfaces are a matter of taste: some people love the Windows 10 stuff, I find it bland, hideous, blinding and clunky, same with the latest OS X design, Unity and Gnome 3 (the last two I find extremely inefficient). ZDE will remain in SourceForge as I don't like the way Git works at all; there's also another reason I use Sourceforge: I don't have a provider to host the binary files and my experiences with Github (though this could be Git's fault :P) have been less than stellar, to put it nicely. What could be done? If someone's willing to provide a stable host for the binaries, I could switch the binary host and make the compiled versions available in that other proverbial host instead of Sourceforge, if that would make some users feel safer. I don't have a lot of time these days to work on ZDE, what time I can afford, I'd rather use to continue developing ZDE 2 (which is coming along, but quite a bit of work) and fixing the inevitable bugs that will be found when it is released, not moving source hosts or fighting Git.

Good! Keep up your work on ZDE 2 then. :D
