stupid gay shit

a case study in why the gaming press is shit


(v0.25-dev) (3.82 MB)
source code (560 KB)

is my attempt to reverse engineer and modernize the game Shadowcaster released by Raven Software in 1993. it is open-source and built with Game Maker Studio v1.4.1482.
you will need a copy of the original game data (RAVDATA.DAT, SHADOW.LIB, and SHADOW2.LIB). Windowcaster will not run without this original game data.

as the development of this project continues, my aim is to provide a feature complete and vanilla-compatible way for players who never got to experience this game to play on modern OSes,
much like how Chocolate Doom provides this for Doom. in addition, i wish to provide a wide berth for mod authors to change as much of the game as possible, while also allowing the creation
of mods that are compatible with the original DOS executable.

the current version of the project contains a full hardware renderer, with a software renderer planned in the future. all of the levels in the game are viewable and much of the game is already moddable,

with support for more features planned as more of the vanilla features are reverse engineered and added to Windowcaster.

check the readme.txt included with Windowcaster.exe for detailed information on how to use it.
