    Thats the question, is there a possibility of seeing that great game on the switch?
    i remember see some screenshots in February-April of this year about it.

    Via homebrew maybe? maybe too heavy? maybe some kind of doom3 Linux version in lakka?
    Thanks

    It's entirely possible. Whether or not someone does it is a different story.

    To be Honest Doom 3 wasn't that good. In my eyes it was just Boring as hell.

    Definitely possible as it was ported by Nvidia to run natively on the Nvidia Shield TV

    Yes, i know its not going to be very demanded, or less than a ton of other games, but whats weird to me is that it was so "done" according to some guys, and so "early" (february) in the scene that not seeing nothing around about it is just..weird.
    Maybe all of it was a fake?

    It wasn't the good old doom run n gun formula. I thought it was alright as a slower, jump scare game.

    It was based on this:
    https://github.com/dhewm/dhewm3

    Although, from the looks of it and the time it was teased, I dare to say that it was running through Linux on the Switch, not a Horizon OS homebrew sadly (I could be wrong though)

    Although it had a totally different approach than the other games, I still got a doom vibe every time I played it. Played it on my tablet a few years back and I did like the portability of it, felt more appropriate imo. And while iIwould like to see doom 64 too, I could enjoy this game on the switch.

    It's possible, but would require more memory than is accessible to an applet, meaning you'd probably have to run it either from the NSP version of hbmenu or as a "standalone" NSP.

    I would love this game on switch. I watched how it ran on Voodoo 2 with 12mb VRAM a few days back, insanity. Im sure its possible but no clue how hard that would be :)

    its technically possible hardest issue is porting over openal-soft. I have attempted to port this to the switch but i cant get openal-soft into working state.

    So, we have nothing to do with the things they implemented, on linux, a few months ago?
    According to the images, if they are true, it was almost done.

    isn't that Doom the one that killed the franchise in the first place? why do you even want it back?

    Killed? Idk about that, I suppose yours is an opinion, respectable like others.
    The answer is: because I like it, another opinion, I think it is a good game who's development was advanced months ago, nothing more.
    XD
    which one did you think was going to be my answer? It was necessary to ask?

    regardless of if it did or did not kill the franchise, it is still a complex project and could lead to a greater understanding of what is needed to port possibly more complex projects. To kind of give an example: by porting this we might be able to gain enough information to port something like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiwinia.

    more than likely, it was a quick port, or a compile with the minimal modification necessary to get it to run on linux, rather than an actual project that someone was working on, and why there haven't been any updates on it.

    which is unfortunate, because i have some very fond memories of playing this game with my best friend when it was originally released, and would love to see it on the switch. sadly, I've got too many projects as it is, otherwise i would throw some time into it.

    Regardless of whether or not Doom 3 was a bad game, it'd still be cool to see it ported.

    yeah, we'll be arguing about that all day, especially considering review scores for the game seem mostly favorable.

    at this point it's really a matter of finding someone willing to do the work in porting it over.
