About This File

GENMID01.WAD is a tiny Doom wad which contains a replacement for the GENMIDI lump in the Doom IWAD. This lump controls the FM music synthesizer on sound cards using the Yamaha OPL2/OPL3 chip. Examples of such cards are Soundblaster, Adlib, and Pro Audio Sound. This GENMIDI replacement is designed to make the Doom music sound better.

Wow. This is beyond terrible. Providing you're using this on OPL3 (either DOS SB16, DOSBox, or ZDoom emulation) this turns the music from the classic, atmospheric and emotion-filled tracks into some retarded, boingy, and off-sounding travesty which actually made me cringe. Avoid at all costs. 0/5

I'm not really gonna use this since I took it upon myself to replace the original music, but very good idea.

The author said, "the quality of your FM music will improve tremendously. In fact, you will likely be astounded by the difference." Yet this makes something that has a smooth and solid sound which contributes to the game's dark theme tend toward awkward and boring, making some instruments sound splashy, weak, or strained. Just check how it turns the awesome mood of D_E1M5 or D_E1M7 to shit, or how it cripples the metal tracks. [1/5] ~Chain Mail (11/2007)

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
