ZDoom 2.8.1 Released

Postby randi » Mon Feb 22, 2016 6:34 pm

ZDoom 2.8.1 has been released. This is primarily a bugfix version over version 2.8.0 with some small additions:

  • #region/#endregion is now supported for text lumps. ZDoom doesn't do anything with them but ignore them, but this allows editors to treat them however they like.
  • Better localizability of the menus.
  • Terrain definitions can now be optional.
  • Walking into an area with a reverb effect no longer mutes all sound.
  • Heretic's time bomb artifacts now spawn in the proper locations.
  • Heretic's powered firemace balls once again seek their targets.
  • The whirlwind attack used by Heretic's Ironlich sometimes fizzled out immediately.
  • Instant sector movement actions are again instant.
  • Various other minor fixes.

Just dropping in because I did a git update and saw the huge number of changes, fixes, additions and, of course, a new version and even news of progress on DoomScript. Wow! :shock:

Thanks very much to everyone who is continuing to work on ZDoom. Amazing stuff.

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to crawl back under my rock again as real-life busyness continues to make anything resembling fun impossible. Completely fed up and miserable. It's been awful for nearly two years. Hoping it might start, finally, getting better around June time. I'll have to wait and see though. :?

If you have a point to make to the discussion, yes. But you can't start threads in News.

Thanks very much, and how can I play in a window? Is there a command-line parameter to do that?

You can either run with +fullscreen 0, press Alt+Enter at anytime during the game, or find it in the Video Modes menu under Options.
