Modified version of "Hell On Earth - Starter Pack" to run in slower computers. Tested on a 2009 laptop at 1.20 GHz
"Hell On Earth - Starter Pack" is a map pack designed to be played specifically with Brutal Doom v20B.
This modified version has reduced visual effects to make the mod run better in older computers like mine.
You will be able to enjoy this mod on a dual-core CPU as low as 1.20 GHz (that is not a typo, I typed 1.2, not 2.1)
update2: the sound files were re-compressed so that the file now requires 60MB less space.
Included in this package:
- the map pack itself (it requires the file ExtraTextures.WAD to be loaded together with it)
- pre-configured gzdoom versions 2.4.0 and 1.9.1 (everything pre-configured to look like the original games, no filtering, dynamic lights are on, hud font size increased, WASD controls pre-configured for all games Doom, Hexen and Heretic) All you gotta do is rename the INI file after the 1st launch.
- a modified version of Brutal v20B optimized for slower computers as well, revision E (further updates coming soon)
- Always load Brutal.pk3 FIRST and then load the Maps LAST like this:
gzdoom.exe -file Brutal.pk3 ExtraTextures.wad StarterPack.wad
gzDoom version 2.4.0 will allow you to play the mods having OpenGL 2.0 for older graphics cards.
If 2.4.0 doesn't work for you, try 1.9.1 (2016) Version 1.9.1 will load on Open GL 2.0 cards (2008 GPUs)
Zandronum 3.0 is based in gzdoom 1.9.1, it works too for multiplayer games using DoomSeeker
Maps 14, 15 and 16 still run like crap, they're wide open city maps, nothing much that can be done. (I mean, they are still enjoyable, I can get no less than 10 FPS at them, so it's perfectly playable, not having to resort to cheats to beat the levels and such) Runs much better than before when it ran at like 4 FPS
Feel free to redistribute all these files at will and further enhance them if you feel like it. I don't claim ownership of any of this, these files are here for personal enjoyment above all and it was simple enough for me to press the "Share Directory" button so others can enjoy as well.
I have also released a modified version of Brutal Doom v20B to run better on older computers, less special effects for performance gains. Check out my files on this link here, they are on the "Other Butchering Projects" directory:
All of these tested and playable with a 2009 laptop at 1.20 GHz.
