This is CGDoom, a DOOM engine for the fx-CG 50 that brings new levels of DOOM
performance, compatibility and goodness to the platform!
CGDoom is one iteration of a pretty long lineage of DOOM source ports:
* Mrakoplaz created nDoom for the TI-Nspire based on the original MS-DOS game.
* Critor then ported nDoom to the Nspire CX (now CX II), adding support for all
commercial games running on the original engine.
* MPoupe then made a playable port called CGDoom to the fx-CG 10/20, which is
commendable given the steep hardware limitations.
* ComputerNerd made the first attempts at an fx-CG 50 version of CGDoom.
* Lephe created this fx-CG 50 version with a fair number of improvements,
supported by extensive feedback and guidance from Computer_Freak_2004.
CGDoom is licensed under GPLv2 as a derivative work of both the original DOOM
sources (GPL) and nDoom (GPLv2). See LICENSE.

* Improve SDL2 build for video capture
* Darken background in menu (some code does that somewhere?)
CGDoom used to be compiled with the mini-SDK. However, it's become quite
difficult to get a copy of that. Instead, this port is built with a modified
PrizmSDK from Jonimoose/libfxcg . I attempted to list differences at first,
but there are quite a lot of bugfixes so I might simply push it later.
