  • Modern and beautiful
    • Choose between GZDoom's OpenGL renderer, or Doom Software
    • Useful features like a console, Quake-style key bindings, freelooking, and jumping

Hi everyone,

Less than 2 months ago I've said that v2.2b will be the last version for a long time... well, there we are with a new version! It's a small update, but it fix a bug which become really annoying if you often forget a few mods that you want to add and close the mod order window without saving... It also add a few other things (read below the changelog).

Still the project is no longer actively developed, but I will push an update each time a bug is fixed. New features may be added with future relase but are not planned right now.

DML v2.3 Main Window

Changelog 12/04/2020 - v2.3


  • Added "REMOVE" button in the mod load order window, that allows to remove the selected mod without the need to close the window, deselect
    the mod fom the mod list in the main window and click play again (NOTE: preset must be saved in order to keep changes) (Thanks eviltechno for the suggestion)
  • Changed the "REMOVE SELECTED PRESET..." button's text to "DELETE SELECTED PRESET..." to make more clear that you're not just unloading it from DML 2.X (like the other "Remove..." buttons) but you are deleting it from disk.

Bugfixes

  • Fixed bug where all the mods in the mod list will deselect (or revert to the initial preset state) if the mod order window was closed before saving (or updating) the preset. (Thanks Silent-Death for reporting it)

Known bug:

  • GZdoom "Quicksave.sav" files gets saved in the same directory as the dml 2.X executable instead on the gzdoom one.

(This is only the latest version changelog, you can find the full DML version history here)

The Mod Order Window with the new

Supported sourceport


As for this version, the only tested source port are:

FULL COMPATIBILITY:
-GZdoom (v4.3.3), -height and -width do not work due to gzdoom way of handling resolution)
-LZdoom (v3.85)
-Zandronum (3.0)
-Zdoom(2.8.1)
-QZDoom (2.1.0)
-Skulltag(98d)

PARTIAL COMPATIBILITY (Some DML features don't work):
-Chocholate Doom (3.0.0)
-PRBOOM PLUS(2.5.1.4)
-GLBOOM PLUS(2.5.1.4)

(As long as it follows the zdoom command line standard, any engine should work fine)


Thanks for all the support!

-Matteo

If you want the Skulltag monsters and weapons you need to add the Skulltag pk3 to your mod.

Master of Puppets on Doomseeker is using most of the Monsters and weapons as an addon to MOP wad.

That's Zandronum by the way.

There is a page for Zandronum right ? why bothering with an obsolete version of it .

Kind of strange to upload Skulltag, seeing how it's been dead for years and has been replaced by Zandronum. But yeah, Skulltag...it was great when it was around, and the best way to do multiplayer.

Brings one of the greatest games of all time into the 21st century. Makes multiplayer easy, adds new levels, weapons and items to explore.

The best fun you can have with a few friends, a retro lan. Highly recommended.
