A Christmas release is available for everyone.
it is a early version of the upcoming Pre-Beta Version 1.65

The update is provided as a drop in file to the standalone release
So you will require the standalone release of Pre-Beta Version 1.61 to play it.
I hope yous enjoy the release and
have a Very Merry Christmas :D
Thanks very much to DoomItalia,

Doom Reborn Pre-Beta Version 1.61&1.65 UHD Widescreen Support Update
This update adds widescreen support and includes the
Performance Fix & Health Vial patches
Resolutions range from 4:3 320x240 too 16:10 8192x5120
Doom Reborn Goes Standalone
I've released Doom Reborn now as a standalone version,
with this release this allows a wider range of players to get involved with the project.
I hope this release encourages a lot of other modders, level designers etc to get involved by
making custom levels, if you do, feel free to submit your levels at DoomWadStation.net and in the
mods section on the new Doom Reborn Game page here on ModDB
In this release i've also included my unfinished version of Map10 of Doom 2 so if you're new to level design
in the idTech4 engine i'd suggest opening other levels from Doom Reborn to see how things are done
and try to finish off Map10 to get a feel for it.
I've included Dafama2k7's Pre-Beta Version 1.6 mod in this release and
I've made various tweaks and changes myself to improve lighting in areas where I wasn't happy.
If you're a coder and want to dabble with the source code you can download it here from github
The UHD Widescreen Support Update is the latest version of the compiled code,
But Brent&Jonny's old .exe and gamex86.dll have been included in
Pre-Beta Version 1.61 standalone build which you will have to download the update to replace.
If you're a level designer and want to make a mod, something i'd like to see is
a remake of John Romero's new fan made project for Doom called Sigil
or remakes of fan levels over the years for the original Doom
You can find alot over at DoomWadStation
I hope everyone enjoys the project,
If you've found any bugs report them here.
Thanks for your interest.
God bless :)

- What's New:
The project is now standalone
i've (Michael Hanlon) adjusted some settings and added Dafama's 1.6 mod into the project
I've adjusted some lights in various levels
I've included my incomplete version of Map10 of Doom 2, Now that the project is standalone and open to everyone (Source Code included at github)
I really want to see the community get involved in someway like dafama2k7 did with his mod for the mod,
If you want to make levels for the project I'd suggest finishing off map10 to get a feel for the idtech4 editor and the doom reborn assets
if you are formiliar with the editor i'd love to see a remake of Romero games "Sigil" Doom 1 Episode 5 fan project by John Romero or other fan levels
over the years that you can find at www.DoomWadSation.net
Once you have made a mod you can submit it at www.DoomWadStation.net as well.
- Enabling Parallax Occlusion Mapping
I've enabled Parallax Occlusion Mapping by default
To disable it, open the command console by pressing left "ctrl" left "alt" and "`" at the same time and type
"image_usecompression 1" and then press enter.
Then type "vid_restart" and then press enter.
The screen will go black then come back grey for a few seconds while it reloads, don't worry that's normal.
After the screen reloads (takes longer if you make the change mid level) that's you all done, press escape or "`"
to close the command line console.
To enable Parallax Occlusion Mapping again follow this same process except use this command instead "image_usecompression 0"
