But if you set the backend to OpenAL, brutal doom stops working correctly?

Does this only happen with 2.1.1? I went to some effort to make sure
my slackbuild can still build the 1.8.x and 1.9.x branches of gzdoom,
since upstream is developing all 3 branches in parallel (well, maybe
1.8.x is done now). See:


Particularly this bit:

1.8.09 - last version to use SDL1 (good for older/slower systems).
1.9.1 - last version to not require OpenGL 3.0 (good for nouveau).
2.2.1 - latest version of gzdoom (best choice for fast modern systems).

2.2.1 will run on my box, but it's got noticeably worse performance than
either 1.8.09 or 1.9.1, so I don't actually use it (tested it by playing
through the first 2 levels of Doom II, which worked).
