'''Chocorenderlimits''' is a [[Wikipedia:Fork (software development)|fork]] of [[Chocolate Doom]] by [[GhostlyDeath]], designed for playtesting levels for [[vanilla Doom]]. It displays count of [[visplane]]s, drawsegs '''''etc.''''' to help determine if and where in the level, vanilla Doom [[static limits]] were exceeded.

'''Chocorenderlimits''' is able to display the following information:
* Display current number of moving platforms (see [[Moving platforms limit]])
 
* Display current number of visible sprites (see [[Visible sprites limit]])
 
* Display current number of [[Static_limits#Openings.2FSolidsegs|openings]]
 
* Display current number of drawsegs (see [[Seg#Drawsegs overflow|Drawsegs overflow]])
 
* Display current number of [[visplane]]s and maximum number of them in this playing session (see [[Visplane overflow]]).
 
** As visplane limit is the most commonly exceeded limit which is fatal, Chocorenderlimits increased the internal limit.
 
** Teleport to the location where the maximum number of visplanes was registered.
 
** Highlight visplane borders or color each visplane with a solid color.

Chocorenderlimits is a fork of Chocolate Doom by RestlessRodent, it is designed for playtesting levels for vanilla Doom. It displays counters for visplanes, drawsegs, etc. to help determine the location and the time that a static limit was exceeded. It was initially created for Sarah Mancuso (esselfortium)'s project Knee Deep In Knee Deep In ZDoom.

Features[edit]

Chocorenderlimits is able to display the following information:

Along with that, you are also able to:

  • Teleport to the location where the visplane count maximized.
  • Draw the visplanes in view with either a border or a solid fill.
  • Brute force the level and show locations where overflows are the most likely to occur.

Status[edit]

RestlessRodent has retired from maintaining Chocorenderlimits. The state of the project has been preserved in a render-limits branch within the Chocolate Doom source code repository, but is still in need of maintainer(s).

Julian Nechaevsky ported Chocorenderlimits to SDL2 in a fork which is focussed on Windows.
