- Graf would have to speak for this. I believe that was one of the plans, if it's not in effect already.

- Models are unchanged so far.

- No. You are right there has been a little work put into OpenGL ES but so far the only version supported is 3. The original developer for D-Touch is still active and doing that on the Doomworld forums.

- For now I've lost interest in the splitscreen stuff, and I don't know how far along the screen and status bar refactoring have come, but they would need to be finished for anything like this to happen. Again, Graf would have to speak to this.

Ah, I see. Thanks for answering!

Oops. Pushed a fix for this, should work again in the next nightly build.

I posted the same thing on Facebook the first time I saw it - the photo wasn't even zoomed (you know how pictures are small on the FB page by default) yet that huge gob of white immediately caught my attention... the fact that it's in the center of the image doesn't help also. :P

Another question does it possible to make these water effects from ZDaemonGL?

That's actually a cool effect, never knew ZDaemon had anything good :)

Not ZDaemon, ZDoomGL; Timmie's long abandoned port. I remember when these blend animations were added. A long time ago n a galaxy far, far away....

The problem was just, the implementation was utter crap.
They looked good when used with the stock fluid textures, but that's really all they looked good with, and why I never bothered.

ZDoomGL had a few interesting features, but here, like with the software shaders, the code just wasn't translatable to GZDoom's renderer (and in hindsight I'm glad I never bothered because these days this stuff would be a first grade feature blocker.)

Due to recent events my dev builds are temporarily halted. I still haven't successfully compiled an OpenAL build in Windows and now with FMOD support gone my builds will no longer have sound.

I'm sure I'll figure it out sooner or later but it just has never been a high priority issue for me.

I could do Linux builds if more than 3 people cared about that platform, though. :P My OpenAL builds work fine, there.

The corresponding Wiki article seems to contain everything needed to build 32- and 64-bit versions.
Also, Appveyor configuration file has a link to all build dependencies (DLLs are not included in the package though) along with the command line for CMake.

I really should fix the setup to load both libsndfile and libmpg123 dynamically and then add the header for all 3 sound libraries to the repo so that building sound support is automatic.

This however will complicate update of these libraries.
In any case, it will be great to have an ability to link all dependencies statically, similarly to DYN_OPENAL and DYN_FLUIDSYNTH options.

Why would it complicate updating? As far as I know, all 3 of them have stable ABIs, so compiling with an older header would still allow an update of the library itself.

How about, I make the needed changes and then someone who knows better what Linux and Mac need fixes it?

I don't know how stable their ABIs are. If mixing old headers with new libraries works without a problem then I was wrong.

I can do this for macOS for sure and probably for Linux too.

That's really nice: After doing all this it is now possible to build GZDoom under Windows without setting up any dependencies at all, if you do not use the XP toolset. Just start CMake, let it generate a project and all is set.

I really would love the option for gzdoom-dev and qzdoom-dev packages with periodic updates on the debian.drdteam.org repository :wub:
