This is an effect mod that keeps the vanilla gameplay intact, but enhances visuals and sound.
Started as a concept project to integrate the Stronghold torches into vanilla doom and doom2, then expanded to fire projectiles and other effects, and now it is a full blown enchancer mod not unlike Beautiful Doom, except the good ol' vanilla gameplay is fully retained.

Intended to be used on modern PC-s to replay classic wads that are close to vanilla.

Recommended port is GZDoom, needed for light definitions, 32bit png-s, and brightmaps.

Credits:

Idea Base:
- Stronghold's Torch Effects

A few extra animations and giblets - Beautiful Doom

Alternate Deaths - ItsNatureToDie/David G
Barrel remains - Xaser

While doing a Let's Play of UD using this mod, I noticed that the Zombieman's pain sounds and active sounds are the same because of the coding in the SNDINFO lump. They're supposed to be different, but part of the code for the Active sounds are the same for the Pain sounds, so instead of playing the Active lumps, it plays the Pain lumps. Other than that, all seems to be good.

Primeval is doing a Let's Play of Ultimate Doom using the mod, so you can take a look at that.

Is there a version of this with just the lighting effects? One than can be easily used with other wads. The lighting effects look great, but I don't care much for a few of the other things like the sound effects. I prefer the psx sounds personally.

This is my favorite enhancement mod by far. Surprised it hasn't gotten more attention here. I only wish I had a compatibility list for pwads so I know which ones not to use this mod with. But the ReadMe did imply they should be "vanilla-ish" otherwise I've gotten some strange results with partial TCs like S.T.R.A.I.N. The most useful part of this mod for me is causing all humanoid monsters' eyes to glow, extremely helpful when you're blasting baddies in a near pitch dark room in GZDoom. I only wish there was a version for GLBoom since I've been using that source port a lot lately.

You can use Slade 3 to edit out the sounds. The torch sounds were driving me crazy so that's what I ended up doing. Just be sure to use it for your own personal use and don't distribute it. Personally, most of the new sounds don't bother me. Even prefer them to the originals, especially on some of the monsters. I miss the Baron of Hell's warcry though.

Hate to bump, but is this still being worked on? Would be nice to see an update for it. At least have the Zombieman sounds fixed, though I can do that myself.
