Welcoming The ioDoom3 Project
Phoronix: Welcoming The ioDoom3 Project
Following the release of the Doom 3 source-code last night by id Software under the GNU GPLv3, an "ioDoom3" project has already been formed out of this id Tech 4 engine code...
I grabbed a copy last night on my macbook and attempted to build it in XCode 4.x after updating the project from XCode 3.2... Other than the fact that Lion doesn't support PowerPC anymore (breaks the build), and a library that isn't stripping right, it seems to build ok. There are about 800-1000 deprecation warnings thrown by llvm/g++ in the process.
I then attempted to build on my x64 Ubuntu 11.10 PVR, and that failed as well. The build currently only works on a 32-bit machine, or a machine with a working multi-lib development environment, which I evidently don't have (since I always build native 64-bit stuff).
I haven't tried building in Windows yet, but they do provide a Visual Studio 2010 project as well. I've got a copy of VS laying around, but I can't say that I'll have time to install it just for a test like this.
If anyone is looking to join in the ioDoom3 effort, fixing the build for 64-bit and newer Macs, and cleaning up the large number of deprecation warnings might be a good place to start.
awesome, cant wait to see what will come out of this.
Good Luck! The solution has solution folders (not supported with express editions of visual studio) and depends on MFC (not available without a Visual Studio license).

I've got a VS10 Pro license, so this shouldn't be an issue. The missing include could be a problem, though. Hopefully that's an easy fix.

As I have boxed versions of Doom3, Doom3 ROE and Quake 4, I *really* hope iodoom will be capable of playing the game content, giving me a chance to re-enjoy Doom3 (As weird as it sounds, I *really* liked it) - this time on a decent 27" display coupled with good video card (GTX470) and 5.1 sound.
Granted, when I play, I'll have to lock my kids (and wife) so they won't have nightmares - but a man got to do, what a man got to do!
