I played this for about 45 minutes testing all kinds of wads. The only problem i've found is knee deep in zdoom wont start up, and the brutal doom mod has weird hall of mirrors effect on several walls and subsectors. Other than that, the vanilla wads work great and it feels really cool. Slightly hard to aim with the gun right in the middle of your view, but other than that it's totally awesome.

I'd love to see some videos of some wads being played. How does in-game architecture "feel"? Do large structures or areas feel larger?

Let's just say the Archvile looks to be about 8 feet tall

It's definitely a cool experience :) It feels like you're inside of the game, albeit while wearing aviator goggles, but it's my new favorite way to play doom.

Thanks Indecom for the thoughtful feedback. About the weapon position: when I created this mod, I actually nudged the weapon upward because I felt it was too low. For the doom pistol and shotgun, the weapon sits significantly below the target spot for me. Perhaps I should nudge it downward again. What resolution are you using? I'm considering trying to make the weapon smaller too; it seems sort of big to me. But I don't know how to do that yet. I should probably get in contact with an experienced developer of zdoom.

It's great to learn that someone is playing my mod. Your feedback is much much appreciated. I'll try to make time to investigate those wads you had trouble with. Thanks again!

Thanks Chris, btw that's my name too XD Umm anywho, i think a good idea would be to lower and shrink the weapons, then maybe add a crosshair just above it. what do you think?

The crosshair is a good idea. And I think zdoom has a built in crosshair, so it might "just work"; or at least be easy to find. Creating my own custom crosshair wouldn't be too hard either.

I started creating issues on github, so I won't forget, based on yours and others' feedback. For example (weapon size): https://github.com/cmbruns/gzdoom/issues/1

Hmm... I'm starting to see referrals from reddit to my download site. I hope this won't impact my relationship with my $2/month web host provider...

Thanks, Dropbox is a good idea.

I just created a new thread on the Projects board of this site, where this topic probably reallly belongs.

Let's try to keep further discussion of GZ3Doom over there.

Apparently the "Knee-Deep in ZDoom" issue is a known problem in the zdoom community. Using Graf Zahl's knee-deep release fixes the problem:

This problem is not specific to gz3doom.

Cool, thanks for the links! Can't wait to dive in and give it a shot! It's the perfect wad for VR, plus a little brutal wad action, tasty!
