PrBoom is a version of Doom using the Simple Direct Media layer (SDL) library, which enables it to use XFree86, OpenGL, Linux framebuffer console, GGI, SVGALib or even color or monochrome text consoles as display. There is an additional OpenGL renderer as well.
PrBoom is based on MBF and LxDoom, which in turn are based on Boom, a freely available port of Doom for DOS, written by TeamTNT (http://www.teamtnt.com/).
PrBoom requires an IWAD to play. A free IWAD is available in the freedoom package. You can install your commercial Doom IWADs using game-data-packager.
prboom and svgalib ================== Using the svgalib driver of SDL is not recommended, as it requires root privileges for the binary. If you want to run prboom without X11 use the fbcon driver, which has better hardware support and doesn't suffer from security problems. If this is not an option for you make sure to a) make prboom setuid root by doing dpkg-statoverride --update --add root r more»
PrBoom compatibility options ============================ Some of this is a bit dry. You might want to skip to the bottom and read the examples. Internally, PrBoom maintains a "compatibility level" which it uses to determine how to behave in various circumstances. The supported levels are currently: Number Name Description 0 doom_12_compatibility Emulate Doom v1.2 game details where possible more»
PrBoom demo support =================== PrBoom has lots of demo options compared to most Doom ports, so I decided to write a brief document outlining the features. If you're thinking of recording demos, you're strongly advised to read this. To play demos, you of course use "prboom -playdemo demoname" (the .lmp is optional). To the best of my knowledge, PrBoom should play all MBF and new PrBoom d more»
