Sorry to post without really adding anything useful.. but seriously, wtf?
If someone tells me 'no, EDGE is a doom engine', does that mean I suddenly lose the ability to make what I would like?

I whole thread is a moo* point.

What the hell are you guys fighting over...EDGE has the word "Doom" in it, is based upon Doom but you can make some fairly brilliant stand-alone title that bears next to no resemblance to Doom, so you can still call EDGE an "Engine", since it has that in the title, "Enhanced", which is tagged to the Doom word, and "Gaming", which could be anything and any title no matter if it's Doom-based or not.

Really this fighting is pointless. All you need to know that EDGE is both a Doom source port and a game engine.

I wasn't trying to flame anyone, or say that EDGE lacks power. For clarity's sake, I was tweaked by the concept of widespread EDGE advertisements, and the idea that we're all making the world's next best game - I don't want to sound grim or belittling, but I can almost guarantee that none of you will attract anyone outside of the already existing Doom community to play your game, no matter how alluring your siren song actually is.

No matter what, or so I would say, the Doom community will be your audience.

Sorry to beat a dead horse, but I need to direct your attention to this.



We now have proof that a doom mod can find an audience outside of the doom community.
