Now Doom port is released



Git:

Tutorial not for end users:

Thanks to @x0x0
and @punderino
Excellent job by "kgsws"
1) Get Pegaswitch set up. The easiest way of doing this that I've seen at least is by following this tutorial. https://reswitchedweekly.github.io/Development-Setup/

2) Download kgdoom.nro from here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mdmyHTfvLibp5dl0RNS_IM4FBPbNtnhO
Make a folder called files inside of the pegaswitch folder and place this inside.

3) Download ace.nro from here: https://github.com/kgsws/kgdoom/raw/master/temp/ace.nro
Rename it kgdoomace.nro and place it inside of the nros folder inside of pegaswitch.

4) Pick a version of Doom you'd like to run from this list.

- to run shareware (doom1.wad), just run 'kgdoom.nro'
- to run doom 1 (doom.wad), run 'kgdoom.nro -doom'
- to run doom ultimate (doomu.wad), run 'kgdoom.nro -doomu'
- to run doom 2 (doom2.wad), run 'kgdoom.nro -doom2'
- to run plutonia (plutonia.wad), run 'kgdoom.nro -plutonia'
- to run TNT (tnt.wad), run 'kgdoom.nro -tnt'

Place the .wad you downloaded into the files folder.

5) Download kgdoom.js from here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GPON_6LdvBnMeHC5iYxSlzbozNFZAtSA
Place that file in the pegaswitch folder.

6) Turn on your Switch and open the internet settings, there should a section labeled "Connectino Status" in the settings and write down the IP to your Switch.

7) Back on your computer open terminal inside of the pegaswitch folder and type "sudo node kgdoom.js", once it's up connect your Switch to the wifi with the DNS the IP lists. Connect to Pegaswitch and wait for the debug log on the right side of terminal say "Pipe closed".

8) You're connected to your Switch type "evalfile usefulscripts/SetupNew.js" and then "runnro kgdoomace.nro" once the Switch is on a screen with just the wifi name and nothing else open another terminal window and cd to the pegaswitch folder and type "ncat SWITCHIP 2991" replacing SWITCHIP with your Switch's IP you wrote down earlier. Once you press Enter it should move a line down and not say anything. You're connected.

9) Finally type the command that's listed next to the .wad you downloaded from earlier. So if I downloaded Doom 2 (doom2.wad) I would run "exec kgdoom.nro -doom2"

Unfortunately, there are some issues with compiling on linux, missing a few files maybe?

i_main.c:261:5: error: use of undeclared identifier 'libtransistor_context'
if(libtransistor_context.workstation_addr)
^
i_main.c:262:33: error: use of undeclared identifier 'libtransistor_context'
server_addr.sin_addr.s_addr = libtransistor_context.workstation_addr;

Hurry because at this hombrew development speed, is going to be hard to find a 3.0.0 one

Homebrew won't be the reason 3.0.0 will be hard to find, you can somewhat correlate Pokken to 3.0.0 demand and... its fairly non-existent, never really has been ever since 3.0.0/Pokken became the 'hot topic' for the scene with ROhan's unveiling months ago. You had a few YouTube vids pop up and some articles on Wololo, and then that was about it. All of the modern consoles feel like fairly niche communities nowadays.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But no.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    emulation isn't telling the silicon to perform a specific way, it's just translating the commands into something the cpu can understand
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    fpga runs them natively
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and i assume there is a level of verification that is not possible with emulation since you can actually probe the pins to verify that it behaves the exact same as real hardware
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    so it's easier to get it 1:1
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there aren't even virtual pins with emulation that you could "probe", it doesn't go that deep
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    So fpga PS2 when? Hehehe
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    fpga PS1 isn't even out yet
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Just saw an article about Anbernic rg40xxh as a "cheaper alternative to RG Cube". I love it when they do that.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "Etch-A-Sketch, cheaper alternative to the iPad"

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i guess they were thinking in emulation capabilities
  • Veho @ Veho:
    In emulation capabilities one can run Gamecube and the other can barely run n64.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    One is Android 13 and the other is Baked Beans OS 0.6 (I'm not even kidding)
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    PC ftw lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    May I suggest a pocket calculator as a cheaper alternative?

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Veho you may be right, all in my PC is probably 1800 dollars and that's using refurbished and mid range parts lol
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Although some stats are pretty cool 38TBs of storage not counting external drives
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    People ask why so much.... ROM sets for even PS2 just eat up that much
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Why so much? Because we have it in our minds we need the latest and greatest when pc performance peaked at a consumer level
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Just finished getting the rest of the emulators on my 3ds. Now I have. gb/gba/sn64/snes/nes
