Pro Controller support for Doom!

Recommended Posts

Anyone with a Skunkboard and Pro Controller interested in trying out my Pro Controller support for Doom?

 

I've added:

  • Independent left and right strafing on shoulder buttons.
  • Circle strafing is much easier to perform.
  • Weapon selection on the x and y buttons.

 

Grab the file here:

With the Skunkboard, you need to upload the original Jag Doom rom to flash (jcp -f "rom file") and then reset the Jag (jcp -r) and then upload this to memory (jcp doom.abs).

 

Much thanks to Carl Forhan for all the support I needed to get this going!

It is not, but I'm sure it could be combined into a larger project. Carl Forhan did the network optimization.

Is this based off the version with the partially fixed network code?

Ouch, sounds like a nudge for me to fire up the Skunks again this winter and add the checksum + retry to the "final" networking fix... ;)

Wasn't intended that way - just multiple builds with different fixes will get annoying :D

Along those lines, BeefMan, please feel free to set up a GitHub or similar online repository for the Doom source... it would be cool to have one set of Jag Doom source updated over time. I'm too old school to do that myself. ;)

I'll look into setting it up.

Rehashing this as I got a pro controller today. I'll have to DL and test this on the skunkboard!

 

Any chance of a straffing support option on Wolfenstein too?

Alright just tested it and it works great! I didnt read the entire first post part first and just ran the ABS and it wouldn't do anything. Saw that you have to flash the original Doom first and then run the ABS next. Straffing works. Then if you turn off the Jag and then restart Doom on the skunk the straffing is gone again. So you for sure have to re-input the ABS file before starting the game again. Would be great if this function could be added directly into the rom itself so you don;t have to do that each time.

 

Have you thought about adding this function to some other games, or are there other games that straffing would be known to work for? I tried it on Skyhammer and it works. I would love this function on Wolfenstein tho!
