The basic goal is to recreate the original Doom and Doom 2 in the idTech4 engine with all the engine eye candy ID Software has provided us with so we can recreate the game for a classic Doom player to remember and enjoy the memories of the classics in a modernized way, but keeping the old Doom spirit well in the game. We hope that you enjoy playing Doom Reborn as much as we have enjoyed making it for you, Have Fun!

Update: 07/10/2014

Yesterday my Active DVI-D to VGA adapter just gave up on me
I'm now not able to continue making E2M1 and Map04 for the time being
I've contacted the person on ebay to see if I can get a replacement
But i don't really have my hopes up for that

If I can't get it replaced it'll be the end of the month before I can possibly order another
depending how much I actually make :(

Anyway wish me luck, And I'll keep you's updated
In the meantime I can still work on textures and other little things

I suppose I should point out to people who don't know
I use my computer on my tv in my room, along with my old
CRT Monitor,
TV's don't function well for development mainly because
they can't display a image as accurately as a true monitor
Nor can't they draw straight line angle from corner to corner

If you don't believe me, I encourage you to link your desktop computer to the tv and
look at a image of a grid and move the image about and watch what happens to the lines,
Also i'm referring to TFT and LCD tv's not CRT, CRT's are much more accurate

My TV I use is a LG 32" 32LD450 
My CRT is a Hansol720P  

Thought I should point all that out lol

The new release is finally here

We really hope yous enjoy :)


But i've put a how to fix guide for the precompressed texture graphical issue that people have had in videos of current versions in the past, It hasn't been enforced off but I believe it maybe should be, I've never found the idtech4 feature helpful not even in the past (2004)
It's a Picture guide of how to fix in game and long term fix even if you delete your DoomConfig.cfg for any reason

You can also few the full changelog for the release from the progress section on the forum

Fan Videos





SimoK has done another awesome video and i'm glad I came across it
so early :)

I need to point out that SimoK has done his own tweaks in the video (As he states himself, small update)
Hes added coloured highlights to the fonts, Tweaked key cards,
Not played using the "DoomReborn.exe" and what appears to be
a few other little things to player feel to suit his style,
I encourage tweaking settings to suit yourself, And im glad Brent hard-codded the
console to always be allowed which is handy for this :) 
But just so everyone knows, some of what you see our not new changes
in this version and some are left out

Well I've started E2M1
But I'm stuck at the moment till I get my Active DVI-D to VGA adapter changed,
I've been in contact with the people on ebay and they are going to change it for me :) thank god

I'll hopefully get the time to post it to them tomorrow and i'll hopefully have my replacement on tuesday or wednesday then i'll be continue my work then :D

But tomorrow on my day off i'll be doing some work on the textures, :)

Since I can't work on the levels at the moment I should focus on something else for the time being :)

Heya sorry for the late reply, I've been busy with work,
And no not yet, Im working through the levels in order myself,
And brent is focusing on code related stuff, to do with the main menu,

I actually haven't heard from him since release day lol
But the last I heard he was very busy jumping about job interviews, So he could be very busy with a new job :)

Heya sorry for the late reply

Meant to get back to everyone sooner but I have been busy

Busy with the mod that is :D

I did a all nighter with my friend the other night,
He was working on his project which is a remake of a game that was on the PS1 and it'll be using Unity

And I was working on this of course :D
Map04 is pretty much finished now,
You can run from start to finish getting all the keys and hitting all the switchs etc, But theres only 1 shotgunner at the moment, But that was to test the opening and closing windows at the start lol
(Poor guy gets shot in the face everytime I open the level to test light adjustments lol)
And I do have to build and open the level everytime, since my 3D render window doesn't work with my past 3 ATi cards HD2900XT HD6950 R9 290

Thats a complete pain, (I've tried a few ways that is supposed to fix it, Turn of aero peak etc) hasn't worked yet but oh well

I can only imagine! :3

Wait, what is this PS1 game you speak of?

*looks over with big eyes O_O*

Is it...

PSX Doom? One of my favorite Doom games along with Doom 64 because of it's creepy atmosphere and just scary vibe going on?

aww i had wrote a big message for you but i knew i should have kept a copy before i tried to save it -.-

so i'll make this quick

The sounds i've bugged me a bit as well, Brent may be able to set a reduced percentage for the menu sound if it's not to much trouble, But it may work just as well if the sound is edited to be slightly quieter

The chainsaw is also something that can bug me a bit,
When its in use and even idle it can start masking the music and nearly everything else going on in the world, which wasn't something it did in the original,
So it is something else I want to look at as well,

The textures what your looking at is the specular map, which appears when light reflects off the surface,
The textures are something im going to continue having a look at, I intend on fixing the textures that do that with the white glows\outlines, But I hope to be able to squeeze more detail out of them in the process,
But we are looking for a proper texture artist that has more experience at this than myself :)

Part 2 of the message

The player thing I haven't experienced myself
But I have had issues with my modded Doom3 causing things not to work in DoomReborn,
The things that didn't work shouldn't have been affected by any of the high detail mods I have for Doom3 but they did,
I can't remember all the mods I have (As in there names), But they are all high detail mods only
They are also the eariler versions of the ones used in packs like Absolute HD
Upscaled&Cleaned;\High Resolution textures
High poly models
Improved render tweaks

The issues I had in DoomReborn that was caused so how by the mods in Doom3 itself caused the stats music not to play
And caused the player to still recieve fall damage

even though both of these changes are part of the hard code

When I was doing my testing from a clean version of doom 3 on all version 1.0 1.2 1.3 1.3.1
Everything worked as expected, except for 1.0 which got to the menu but when it came to loading a level is complained about something to do with the pistol script lol
But this was not surprising since it was 1.0, but it was worth testing since brent completely re-wrote the gamex86.dll and DoomReborn.exe off the sdk

So if you have any mods to your Doom3 itself it could be worth testing the mod on a clean install of Doom3 in a different folder
Btw all you need to play is the base folder from Doom3
Delete the copy if its not any different

Thanks again for the feedback and sorry for the more rushed message

Sure np, as for the install there's no mods installed unless you count RoE which is classed as a mod but is actually an expansion.
