Doom3 for AmigaOS4 Beta1 released

Published 11.03.2023 - 12:44 by AndreasM

A few months ago, Hugees "HunoPPC" Nouvel prepared the first beta compilation of "Doom 3" , which everyone could test. However, he did not decide on a full public release at that time, because his goal was to optimize the game engine to a level allowing for 30 frames per second on AmigaOne X5000 computers with a resolution of 1920x1080 and Ultra graphics settings. This result not only allows for a relatively comfortable gameplay, but also allows you to beat the results of other systems operating on PPC, such as Linux (27 fps) and MacOS(29.5fps 1600x1200 for MAC G5 2.5GHz PCIe). The set goal has been achieved, so from now on anyone willing can download the Amiga port based on the Dhewm 3 project without any restrictions .

Other features of the public release include:
