Doom 2 1.7a to 1.7 binary patch|
This patch will downgrade Doom II version 1.7a to version 1.7, which cannot be obtained otherwise through official patches.|
There is a previous downgrade patch of this nature, d217a17.zip, which only works on Windows 2000 and higher. I found this annoying when the game itself is for DOS, so that's all this patch requires; DOS. It should work on real MS-DOS, DOSBox, and 32-bit x86 Windows (other versions do not have the NTVDM and lack DOS support entirely).

|Why would someone want this? It's useless, but I will give you 4 stars for all the effort that you went through to create it. 4/5. -dbsw57||x|
