Browser Doom

7 posts in this topic

Another HTML5 game is available to play in your browser... DOOM!

Dev Notes:

https://developer.mozilla.org/media/uploads/demos/a/z/azakai/487d42c2ecc1627745a469861bd377e2/doom-on-the-web_1306727266_demo_package/details.html

Important! (as of 06/02/2011)

The demo works well on Firefox and Safari. Works, but slowly, on Opera. Extremely slow on Chrome due to V8 issue 947.

Game is here:

It may rely upon hardware acceleration, which is only available in newer browsers like Firefox 4 and IE9. It wasn't bad on my older machine with XPx64 and FF4: 35 FPS.

I'd better not even attempt it at work. My video card can't even handle Aero!

Lets see, I can get real doom, mod it so I can play via Kalleria, or even play another variant of doom via console, via Kal. Or I can

even play a mod mod mod of doom, with it's own private server, or better yet upgrade my browser so I can play doom, via AKA

no JavaScript 5. Can this work without Java? My understanding is that HTML 5 is meant to replace Java. Otherwise I imagine some

jerk on a iphone, playing this right now.

I'm sure id Software would have signed off on it if Mozilla just asked for permission. Too bad. Also read some interesting thing about the Doom source code release. Apparently only a Linux version was released and the DOS version couldn't be released due to some copyrighted sound driver.
