Doom

This is a port of Duke Nukem 3D, derived from Fabien Sanglard's Chocolate Duke.

Installation

The .GRP and .CON files from an original installation of the game must be placed in the /.rockbox/duke3d/ on your device. The demo version works well.

Music

In-game music will not work by default. For it to work, you must install a modified Timidity patchset in the /.rockbox/timidity/ directory on your device. There should be a /.rockbox/timidity/timidity.cfg file located in this directory, along with the instrument files. You must edit the .cfg file so that all the path names are absolute (i.e. in the form /.rockbox/timidity/instruments/*.cfg).

Video

Rotation of the video output is possible by choosing the correct video option in the in-game menu. If your device's display is normally 320x240, for example, choosing the 240x320 option will rotate the screen 90 degrees, and the keymap will be updated as well.

Caveats

Sound effects, enabled by default, could have a detrimental effect on playability on some devices. If you notice excessive lag, try disabling sound.

The default button mapping may not be optimal for gameplay. Set a different mapping in the ``Keyboard'' section of the game setup. Note that not all keys are mappable on all devices.

Some devices will low memory or large GRP files will prevent the game from completely caching the GRP file in RAM, which could lead to disk reads during gameplay. This might cause the game to lag slightly when it happens, which is normal. The game should resume in a second or so.
