Boom is a more advance Doom engine with some features like translucency effects, weapons recoil, dehacked files support, etc. I'd say it plays all wads doom except those written for ZDoom.

For example, Wolfenstein mods for Doom can only be played with a Boom compatible Doom port:

Boom features:

Player bobbing improved, optional
Friction effects
Wind, current, conveyor effects
Far more flexible scrolling wall/floor types
Always run
Weapon change logic overhauled and improved
Generalised line types system gives complete flexibility
Elevators
Translucent sprites, walls
Independent floor and ceiling lighting
Silent teleports
Deep water, true underwater areas
Fix large numbers of game bugs
Support arbitrary texture heights

I've installed as per the readme, added a few wads, but it resets as soon as I select a game from the menu. Is there something else I need? Do I need the original game wad aswell?

Yes,

Download original shareware heretic, install it, then grab heretic.wad and stuff it in the heretic folder too. No need to add it to the cfg file.

They work fine on my FLU and BLU GP32s. I uploaded a version that disables the wad selector if you delete the wads.cfg, so download them (first post of both threads) and delete the wads.cfg

Hello, are there any news concerning the progress of the doom interpreter? or is there a chance to test the version without the working save function? can't wait to play some of the extended mods ...
