If your ping to the server(s) in question is very high (say 600+), illegal operations upon trying to connect will be very common. Too bad. Packet loss in general is bad news, too.

Btw, you don't need ZDooM to be able to play ZDaemon, and vice versa. ZDaemon is based on csDooM which is based on ZDooM.

Anyhow, if there is _any_ way you can get to play people in the original DooM, I highly recommend doing that instead.

playing original doom in net play is about impossible. the only way it can be done is a 4 person LAN party. well u can call someone and play that way, but u need a old ass modem(or full hardware modem compadible with an old ass modem) I have never had any sucess playing a net game with original doom

Actually it works quite well. I play DooM2 v1.9
on the 'net on a regular basis, more precisely
at http://zone.msn.com/zonelan. I'm
lucky enough to get playable pings to some of
the very best deathmatchers in the world. Playing
on the Zone with pings as low as say 45 ms is
great. These games actually work better than
the typical sersetup modem game, and about just
as well as the typical serial cable (null-modem)
game. Of course, playing on a fast ethernet LAN
would be even better, but this definitely is the
next best thing.

I was playing DooM on the 'net already back in
1994, by the way, using some funny piece of Unix
software called IHHD (Internet Head-to-Head
Daemon?). Those games were dead laggy, though,
as I was using a 14.4k SupraFAXModem at the time.

Why specifically 4 persons?-) We were 13 doomers
in Stavanger in July, all hooked up to the same
LAN. It was great fun.

Yes, you do need a real modem to be able
to play original DooM, using sersetup or some
compatible serial driver.

Well, let's hope you will, sometime soon...

I used to play modem games on a 14.4, ran perfect on both ends. At least, when I played with somebody who had a good computer. Some of the people had 486 and 386 computers, which of course I lasted about 5 minutes in those games. The weirdest thing is that they could play the games perfectly with frame-per-second animation, they were so used to it.
