What works

  • Installer (after winetricks dotnet20) 2D editing mode, configuration dialogs, nodebuildin, loading, saving.

    I wouldn't consider it very useable for regular mapping. If anything, its only use would be handy editing of floors to match hexagonal tiles in flats.

What does not

  • The menu bar (File, Edit, etc) does not appear, though the items are still clickable and generate working menus when clicked.
  • Many overlay/transparency features in 2D mode do not work, for example all Things appear as colored boxes and new Linedefs do not have their lengths shown during placement.
  • 3D mode works but is ugly, as many transparencies are broken there too. I'd consider it unuseable for regular mapping.
  • The installer seems to generate broken menu entries, I had to edit Doom Builder.desktop (in ~/.local/share/applications/) and change the Exec line:

# Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/username/.wine" wine C:\\\\windows\\\\command\\\\start.exe /Unix /home/username/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Start\\ Menu/Programs/Doom\\ Builder\\ 2/Doom\\ Builder.lnk
Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/username/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Doom Builder 2\Builder.exe"

  • Spinning around in 3D mode stops as the underlying mouse cursor hits the edge of the screen. Enable MouseWarpOverride by creating a file called db.reg containing the following, then install it with wine regedit db.reg:



What was not tested

  • Most features of 2D mode beyond making Sectors, inserting Things and saving maps.
  • Most features of 3D mode.
  • Testing in sourceports as these would require working Windows sourceports to be installed.
