This project is a modification (mod) of the game Doom 3 from id Software.
During development of Doom 3 it had always been stated that the focus would be on single player gameplay. Relatively late on in the project, however, multiplayer online and LAN play was included.
While the underlying networking implementation was robust there were several flaws in the actual game play and very few of the features were available that online players now take for granted in a multiplayer title. Some of the flaws were addressed in subsequent patch releases but no significant changes to the basic features were made.
The Enhanced Militarized Zone (EMZ) was created to add the "missing" features and fix as many of the remaining faults as possible. Its development was guided by the needs of the online Doom 3 community and the desire to experiment with the technologies provided by the Doom 3 engine (idTech4).
The technologies used in EMZ development are as follows:
