No quad rocket mayhem, or axing people a question when quadded in multiplayer DM. Sorely disappointed.

The only thing it’s missing now is an email client (or just include emacs and be done with it).

As a side note, I’m not seeing semitransparent water/lava. You forgot to vispatch your maps for us Diamond Monster3D owners.

That’s not Quake though is it? I don’t recognize the environs, weapons or foes.

(nitpicking)

Do we need a pixls open arena or xonotic server??

Looks like Quake level with Doom (2016) gameplay.

well spotted, both of you :slight_smile: it’s a mod, but pretty much the vanilla quake code.

haha brilliant. indeed the handling of water is terrible at best. but the above video drops the vis/bsp/qrad data on the floor and just ray traces all geometry at once. insane what today’s hardware can do when you compare it to the old one. i think i played this on 486 without hardware graphics acceleration.

hehe maybe same date next year :slight_smile:

Ah, effectively r_novis if I recall correctly. Known to be able to even slow down modern systems on large maps. You forgot r_wateralpha 0.5 :stuck_out_tongue:

I started with software+Pentium, and spent some of the proceeds from a summer internship in high school to buy the original 3Dfx card (Diamond Monster3D)

Nvidia has come a long way since the original Riva 128, which was IMO garbage even for its time.

Oh, someone coincidentally: Doom Classic: RAY TRACED - Trailer - YouTube

ahahaha brilliant. even better than mine. the thing as that you usually want to ray trace only quake2 upwards, because you have light lists. q1 pretty much only has fullbright textures which is super annoying if you want to sample the illumination. but doom! what does it even mean to cast a shadow from a 2d sprite! :smiley:

But can it play “nice” on Windows?! :slight_smile:
I would love to try out vkdt but I don’t have a Linux machine. Is the plan for it to be multi-platform one day?

don’t know what’s nice about windows… i don’t have such a machine and i don’t know how to install a compiler on one. sorry.

I think it would be nice and “strategically” smart if vkdt were available for Windows. I think some people already compiled earlier versions on Windows. I have a dual boot system but I imagine it’s not so easy to compile it on Windows, plus I have other worries at the moment.
Maybe we can find someome for this task eventually.

The community will have to make that happen, same as for darktable.

That’s what I wanted to say. We cannot ask or expect @hanatos to do that. But is someone else did it I would support it.
I can totally understand if Windows users are curious and want to try it. But I think installing Linux on any PC is easier than compiling vkdt on Windows.
