  • Version 1.2 of the multi-game Doom-engine project Vavoom has been released; changes include:
    • Some structures are replaced with C++ classes, which makes coding easier.
    • Functions, that takes most of the execution time (R_DrawColumn, R_DrawSpan andRunFunction) now are in assembler (DOS and LINUX versions only).
    • Improved dehacked support. Now it handles everything, that it can. It is also added to makeinfo utility, which means that now you can create PROGS with changes of dehacked patch.
    • Removed some command line params (-playdemo, -record, -width, -height, ..). Most ofthem are replaced with console commands that can be specified in command line byadding + before them (like in Quake).
