New DoomLegacy Soon
9:32 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The official Doom Legacy web site has been updated, noting a new version should soon be out for all platforms (including the Mac, of course). The Mac version of this updated Doom app is maintained by Calum Robinson, and his efforts to incorporate support for Heretic files will be rolled into the next version as well. In case you don't remember, Robinson posted some Heretic screen shots in one of his recent updates to the Mac Doom Legacy site. This means you will have full OpenGL support (along with the many other features) while playing Heretic. Here's a clip from the site with word on what else will be changed in this version:

We hope to release a new version of Doom Legacy soon. We will do a common release between all OS (currently Dos, Linux, Win32, OS/2 and MacOS). That version should fix most of the xmas release problems (master server,...), improve 3D-Floors (including in hardware mode), add volumetric fog in software mode, add Heretic support, fix most missing texture problems in hardware mode,... Some good stuff in perspective!
While 3D-floors may seem trivial, remember that Doom is originally a 2.5D game. This will allow map-makers (yes, there are still people making levels for Doom) to have structures you can move above and below, such as bridges. We'll keep an eye out for the official update from Robinson and let you know when it's available.
