PortaDOOM Cacowards 2018 has been released!
https://github.com/Kroc/PortaDOOM/relea ... /v20181231

This is a self-contained, pre-configured launcher and WAD collection of the 2018 Cacowards, presented with an early '90s MS-DOS 'disk-zine' UI!

Any plans to update this? It's a great idea and super handy! Just wish it had some modern day stuff because it's a lot easier to look through.

A brand new release after 5 years!

https://github.com/Kroc/PortaDOOM/relea ... /v20231130

Want to try out the Cacowards releases, but its' too much to download all that stuff and configure it all? PortaDOOM packages up Cacowards into a self-contained, portable, pre-configured, launcher. Every compatibility quirk, specific engine requirement, configuration option has been handled for you. You just choose a WAD, press a key and it plays, flawlessly, first time.

An all new launcher has been written that automatically selects the compatible engine(s) for you.

Packages for the Cacowards 2015 through 2019 are provided and one for DOOM CE -- PlayStation DOOM & DOOM 64.

Where's Cacowards 2020-2022? It takes a couple of weeks to make each package and I've been working for three weeks solid to get everything finalised for this release -- the remaining Cacowards will come eventually, particularly if there's good interest and feedback.
