what about doom for windows7?
page seems mostly useless. == Okay. Presumably, this page would be for clueless newbies; who are typically the kind of people with the attention span of a goldfish and a tendency to panic when a text to read is more than two-paragraph long. This article would need to be considerably simplified.
Basically, what needs to be said is nothing more than this:
::* A normal-looking Win32 installation routine, with a point-and-click interface, which automatically adds shortcuts to the desktop and Start menu. The user should not have to decompress files manually, let alone use a command line.
::* An integrated GUI launcher. (Yes, this excludes most ZDoom distributions.)
::* The ability to use IWADs/PWADs that aren't in the port's folder.
Ideally, the launcher remembers their locations between sessions; the user should never have to know where config files are located.
::* Default graphics/sound setups with broad compatibility. Installing multiple SDL components just to get the app running is insane.
:: Also, [http://zdoom.org/wiki/IWAD that list] looks like tl;dr to me. It would be better to have a simple table for each OS (game title vs shareware/full, or something). [[User:Ryan W|Ryan W]] 21:34, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
