    Wonder what anyone here thinks about this, which came out some months back, with its latest version being 1.5 released 2 months ago.

    I was so hyped when I found out about it, literally improves everything about the port to the ill-fated Sega add-on by essentially re-forking directly from the Jaguar port and then patching onto the original 32X ROM.

    I didn't even mind the original port, it wasn't terrible (it did beat the Saturn, 3DO and SNES ones playability wise, and let's face it, who actually had a Jaguar or could realistically afford a 3DO at the time?) but was definitely rough around the edges. On the topic of the original 32X music, while "farty" and seemingly auto-arranged with a conversion tool explaining the weird pitch bends in E1M8, are still not much different to the OPL3 renditions IMO, though lacking that horrid clicking percussion.

    Anyway, enough about the original. Many of the levels are restored from the original, extra screen resolutions and details can be chosen, an FM soundtrack (by SpoonyBard) which honestly blows any other version out of the water including the SC-55 originals in my opinion... and a particularly neat feature of this resurrected port is Mega-CD support which literally lets you load in tracks off the CD.

    If I ever get a 32X this is why. Well, this and Virtua Racing Deluxe. I already own the original Doom release actually, which I bought a while ago.

    (I believe this project also won an award in the Doom community and in the SEGA homebrew community.)

    This is news to me. Neat to see this port getting the attention it honestly deserved, though.

    Absolutely. The 32X port might have been rushed but what mattered was that it was playable and on something that cost much less than a PC at the time, and gave roughly the same kind of experience.

    I'm also pretty sure it's the only piece of 32X homebrew/hacks that's actually optimised for 50Hz PAL systems too. There isn't much to compare it to, but you know, that's a bonus in itself.

    (Also, unpopular opinion but I genuinely can't stand the SNES port's OST. The samples used are... eurgh, to say the least.)
