    I just thought many of you might be interested in this ...

    I tried installing the zdoomz program from the official site (links at bottom of post), but I could not get it working on my treo 650. I finally found out how to get it to work:

    I downloaded a custom version built for the tungsten T3 from here:
    http://user.cs.tu-berlin.de/~jonash/...lmos_free.html

    It worked fine except for some memory issues which I seem to have solved by running a program called UDMH (Unlimited Dynamic Memory Hack) wich basically turns your free memory into dynamic memory (much like windows XP virtual memory). I have to run the hack each time before I run zdoomz to get it to work without a memory error and it makes the game run a lot faster. You will need to add zdoomz to the UDMH program for it to work, but leave the settings as default.

    You can get the doom1 demo wad (you will need it) from here:
    http://www.jimmysoftware.com/Softwar...E/download.asp
    even though it says its for windows CE it should work fine on the palm (the .wad file is platform independant).

    I found other wads on the net but have not been able to get any of them to work.

    I do run into problems every once in a while that require a reset. Either a freeze, or sometimes I'll get this weird zip file error. If you do reset, you will need to re-enable the UDMH program.

    Also, I did not mess with installing music. And the treo 650 keyboard does not work.

    I would like to hear your experiences with this as well.

    Also, what have you found to be the best key setup?
    currently I am using:
    phone - strafe left
    calendar - strafe right
    5-way - move and fire
    mail - use
    hang up - switch items
    bottom left corner of screen - menu

    what works best?

    Well, I got the program to load up and did the key assignments, but I cannot get it to find the Doom1.wad file to load up. What did you do to make it work?

    the first time you run zdoom it creates a directory on your mem card called like palm/programs/zdoom or something like that.

    Put the .wad file and also the .zdk file in there. If you still dont see it try resetting, reinstaling, etc.

    I use card export to get the wad file in the right place. There are also instructions for install and plenty of discussion here:
    http://yoyofr92.free.fr/zdoomz/
    This is the site of the original creator of the software.

    Well, I got it half working. After placing the DOOM1.wad file in the right foler, it shows up, but now I get an error, "the emulation module to run this game is not present" and then "zdoomz.zdk"

    Placing zdoomz.zdk in the same folder seems to work. Now I just have errors to deal with.

    I got a Doom II wad to work without UDMH, but it is kind of slow. I might need to exit a few more apps like zlauncher in order to get it running smooth without UDMH.

    I keep getting errors. They appear to be memory allocation errors.

    It looks to me like there are only three files involved here:

    ZDoomZ.prc - located on the device (or, I think, on the card with an appropriate launcher).

    ZDoomZ.zdk located on the card in the ZDoomZ folder
    wad files (Doom1.wad) located on the card in the ZDoomZ folder

    In addition, I do have UDMH running, with ZDoomZ listed for default settings.

    Is this the same setup you guys have where this is working?

    Anybody gotten hexen or quake to work yet?? I haven't found the WAD files for those. I found the demo WAD at doomwadstation.com (at least I think it's the demo, I haven't played it past the first coupla levels yet).

    I haven't tried Quake or Hexen (I am not even familiar with that one) yet. I finally got Doom to work. It generates a few errors while loading, but it works. I had to hard reset and restore from the Palm bakcup and now it works. No other changes. Go figure.

    westronic, can you exit the game without a softreset?

    Yes. You must be sure to set up a key or screnn area to bring up the menu, though. I did not at first, so I had to soft reset to get out.

    Also, I cannot save a game as I cannot get any keyboard input to work.

    EDIT: I can indeed save a game. I just had to have more patience when using the virtual keyboard.

    I can exit the game without a soft reset when using UDMH, but I have to soft reset before Doom will work again without a memory error.


    westronic - I think everyone gets the mem allocation errors - just keep hitting the center key or the screen until they go away. If a memory error comes up in the CENTER of the screen, then you know it will crash when you complete the first level (of the doom demo anyway).

    Thanks. I now have both Doom and Quake working. I do have to soft reset each time to play again. I'll probably not play them much, but it's really nice to know they can work, and it gives me something to show off!

    I don't have to use UDMH either...

    I have not found any other WAD that works with the doom emulator. Where have you guys gotten the WADs for quake/hexen??

    The screen....the touchscreen is separated into different blocks close to the edges of the screen and you touch them to active a "virtual keypress".

    Yep - and in the center is a spot that brings up the virtual keyboard.
