WiiDoom 0.3 Has Been Released

WiiDoom 0.3 is now up for download. I've switched from boot.elf to boot.dol, so delete the elf before putting the new version on your sd card. Here's the changes in this version:

  • Saving/Loading works (using Nintendo-style save slots)
  • Messages are now correctly displayed on screen
  • Automap works (panning, zooming, and follow mode)
  • Boot.dol distributed instead of Boot.elf (much smaller file)
  • Preliminary PWAD support (one wad at a time)

Wow. Moving along EXTREMELY quick here! Before I know it, you'll have all kinds of additional stuff in WiiDoom that the original didn't have XD
Great job so far on getting everything working so well!

Congrats on the release! Thanks for including my makefile change.

Regarding the distribution of the project, WiiDoom has been downloaded via the Homebrew Browser almost 8000 times. It is still giving users the FreeDoom wad. Should I contact the Homebrew Maintainer nad tell him to include the Doom 1 shareware instead? It would be smaller, less buggy and more familiar to the typical WiiDoom player.

Thoughts?

i'm having a problem installing it... i basically directly extracted the file into my SD card... when i ran via Homebrew channel, it gave me some error "Identification: IWAD not found" or something of that sort. any help?

As per the instructions, you will need a Doom wad file in the prboom directory. If you don't have one, you can download the shareware version of Doom.

David Hudson: that probably needs to be fixed asap.

Steve Corey: this version rocks. I'm really enjoying the game for the first time in a while.

thanks for everything! awesome.

Nice work, please keep doing so well !
I still prefer to use my tweaked dols in order to have each doom available in the homebrew channel until a real wad selection ;)
I made icon for each of em too XD
