I feel it would be very much in the spirit of free
software for jDoom to be able to play the freedoom
iwad. At the moment, this isn't possible because
several doors and switches in the levels don't work in
jDoom. It's probably the fault of the freedoom authors
for not making the iwad more compatible with vanilla
Doom, but here's a request for support anyway.

Freedoom should make use of the very beautiful Doomsday's Open-GL render.

FreeDoom is Boom compatible. It will work once all Boom features are supported.

Well, that's FreeDoom should become Doom2-compatible!

Actually, I would prefer for Freedom to become Doom II compatible. However, that doesn't fit into the Freedom team's goals at all. Their goal is to create content that can become a standalone 100% free game when used with a modern port of the Doom code, not an expansion for commercial Doom II. Since most of the popular ports support or plan to support Boom extensions, they don't see any reason not to use them. In any case, since jDoom is going to support Boom extensions in the future, I think this request is a non-issue. Can this be closed?

I'd rather it stay open until I can play FreeDoom in Doomsday the way FreeDoom is intended to be played. FWIW Chocolate Doom can't play FreeDoom either, and it's devs have an interest in FreeDoom, so either FreeDoom will change, or we will implement missing Boom features - eventually.

We should add separate game modes for Freedoom in libdoom and check which map features are missing for full support.
