COMPET-N and Cooperative under DOSBox

Post by fx »

If you want to play and record demos for COMPET-N under DOSBox here is what you have to do:

Requirements:
- Doom 1 or Doom 2 or TNT or Plutonia game installed in C:\DOOM
- DOSBox - DOS emulator
- VDMSound - DOS sound card emulator

Optional:
- 7zip - free zip extractor
- novert - turn off/disable vertical mouse movement

1. Download and install:
DOSBox v0.74
VDMSound
7zip - only if you need zip extractor
DOSBox config - overwrite your existing config, but save/backup your old one!
Novert - extract to C:\DOOM\


2. Run DOSBox and try Doom...


More features in installer will be created later. (.bat examples, config files etc...)


If you have comments or suggestion please give us. This will be main thread for playing COMPET-N under DOSBox.

3. How to play cooperative game over Internet with DosBox:
- You have to enable IPX, so find ipx in your DOXBox config and set it to true. You can download our config too (see section 1. Download and install).:

Code: Select all

ipx = true
- Player that will host the game (act as a server) MUST allow UDP port 213 through firewall.

Code: Select all

allow UDP port 213
- player with server only: find out your IP address if you don't have a fixed one, go to: http://ip.doom.com.hr and copy your address and give it to the other player

Code: Select all

ipxnet startserver

Code: Select all

ipxsetup -nodes 2 -skill 4 -warp 1 -maxdemo 1024 -record demo1
- client player only:

Code: Select all

ipxnet connect xyz.xyz.xyz.xyz

Code: Select all

ipxsetup -nodes 2 -skill 4 -warp 1 -maxdemo 1024 -record demo1
That's it!

I'll add to this later, but the final result will be an ultra user friendly DOSBox where user-friendlynes doesn't create drawbacks.

I have found one great DOSBox port that works for me so good that I don't feel the difference. I didn't test too much since I'm in a rush now, but think that even mouse is working much much better. Used same old dosbox configuration with extra settings:

Code: Select all

output=direct3d
scaler=hardware2x
