Thank you Randy and Graf Zahl for continuing your work on this amazing source port (thanks go out to all other contributors as well). Good birthday present ;) (Well, a few days early, but good enough :P)

Yeah! This is great. As Revolver Ocelot says, "I've been waiting for this!"

Congrats on releasing a new version. Truly something amazing this is, yes. As Yoda would say...

I shut up now.

A big thank you to the developers and everyone who helped along with making this version the most awesome ZDoom release ever. I almost can't believe how far ZDoom has come over all these years. Keep up the good work guys!

Great release, but for some reason, my performance suffered a bit after upgrading to 2.3.0. What could be the top cause for this?

Based on the information you posted about your system and setup, I think this guy might be able to help with the answer...

3.4 GHZ Pentium IV
ATI RADEON X700 PRO
2.25 GB RAM

I run the game with a 1680x1050 res, and even lowering it didn't do a whole lot.

Curious. Your machine beats mine on every aspect that you have listed, yet I have noticed no reduction in performance between 2.2.0 and 2.3.0. If anything, things have improved. Purely out of interest, what kind of fps values are you getting and how do they compare with 2.2.0? (If you don't know how to get fps values, type vid_fps 1 at the console to display an fps counter.)

I did an FPS on both 2.2.0 and 2.3.0, and the results were nearly equal. Could other memory consuming apps running in the background slow down ZDoom?

EDIT: Oops, forgot the FPS. They ranged anywhere from 25-200 FPS, usually averaged between 35-45 FPS. Why does that seem rather low?

My FPS seems much slower in 2.3.0 on nuts.wad. :shock:

Now, where can i download 2.2.0 again...

Ok. In nuts.wad on 2.2.0 I get 25 FPS just sitting at the start.
In 2.3.0, the FPS is 25 for about 2 seconds then quickly drops to 1 to 2 FPS and stays there.

Same exact config file. Do I need to make a new config for 2.3.0?
edit: that didnt even help.

That's not my experience. Just standing at the start, both versions perform about the same. Then after getting the monsters' attention, 2.2.0 drops to 1-2 FPS and stays there. 2.3.0 also drops but not so much and starts gaining performance about 30 seconds or so later as some of the monsters die and quickly becomes quite decent after that. Moving from the starting platform is also important, since that seems to be the worst place for performance. You need to drop down on their heads so their projectiles fire lower and trigger more infighting.
