Cross-Capatability

Post by JamesHHH »

So, I'm making a Discord-based Doom-Connector of some sort. And to make it easier for tons of people (especially when the server is still beginning), I was wondering if ZDoom and GZDoom etc. were cross-playable. Just wanted to ask.

They are not.

Everyone must be using the exact same version of the exact same port.

The only cross-play that is supported is if for instance you want to play a multiplayer game with a Mac, a Linux, and a Windows machine together. Cross-architecture (i.e. PC and Raspberry Pi) works as well. As long as everyone is playing the same version of the same port, it should work just fine.

Okay then! Thank you.
