    After posting Old'ER' news about DoomRL to the front page of GBATemp, someone on the Internet grabbed the Filetrip file and rereleased/repacked it assuming it was a DS port. In the first line of the original news post I made it clear that DoomRL was for the PC. On the Filetrip download page I specifically listed that the included files were for the PC and Linux.

    GBATemp has been predominantly a GBA/DS/Wii news site, but we are trying (ever-so-slowly) to branch out into other aspects of gaming news. We would like for our users to keep this in mind and ask them to please read all news content carefully before making assumptions.

    I have received many PMs and e-mails about how to get DoomRL running on the DS. Currently there is no .NDS port of DoomRL and there are no plans to make one. If you download a copy of DoomRL 0.9.9.3 described as being for the DS you will be disappointed.

    It's funny in a pretty lame way...

    This does look pretty interesting though. I'll have to try it on my PC when I get home from work [​IMG]

    Noobs need to STFU and play it on DSx86. That's what the emulator is there for.

    I will admit..when I first saw it..I thought it was for DS..then I checked the homepage and saw that nothing was mentioned about the DS..so then I knew it was for PC.

    Reading comprehension is key:

    That is the first line from the news post. THE FIRST LINE.

    That'd be a fail, captain.

    Though to be completely honest, a DS port would kick all the ass.

    I read that first line when the news first appeared, and my heart sank. I was uncertain as to why it was posted here at all - I had assumed it was for the DS until I read otherwise. Oh well!
