About This File

This patch downgrades a Doom II -version 1.9, down to v. 1.666. That version can then be upgraded to v. 1.7a by using the official upgrade patch. The doom2- version, that has been used as a base for this downgrade, had the timestamp 29. August 1994 ( 8-29-94 ), so you have to use the upgrade for that 'sub-version'. What you win by using this patch is the ability to use demo-lmps and dehacked-patches, that have been made for pre-1.9-versions of doom2. To install just extract the content of the zip-file into your doom2-folder and run the batch-file '19to1666.bat'. Wait patiently until the process is done. Ignore the 'batch-file-not -found'-message. Run setup.exe and play the game. The upgrade from 1.666 to 1.7 can be found here: ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/pc/games/idgames/idstuff/doom2/doom2p.zip ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/pc/games/idgames/idstuff/doom2/doom2p.txt (You have to run PATCHA.BAT) If ftp.sunet.se disappears from the online world, replace the part: 'ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/pc/games/idgames/' in the above URL with any mirror of archives.3dgamers.com. You can find a list of current mirrors at the end of this file. By the way: This patch is for the DOS-version of DooM II, not DooM95. The installation of the DOS- version is started with INSTALL.BAT, somewhere on your DooM2-CD.

This is a 32-bit Windows program, you'll need Windows or maybe WINE to run it -- it won't work in DOSBOX.

Why would you want to downgrade? Half of the new ports don't even work with doom2 1.666

... the ability to use demo-lmps and dehacked-patches, that have been made for pre-1.9-versions... ?!? Who cares to use those outdated entries?!? Bah, I guess that a few will be glad with it? Back to the future... 3 stars for the idea and the hard work on it -Jive

5 stars. It can only be a good thing that this is available to those who will find it useful.

Newer stuff always changes and is often forgotten. Old stuff, especially from the core games as released by the developers should always be available. For all that the new stuff may bring, disregarding or scoffing the old will only isloate DOOM from its reputation, making it just another "mod-base." Thumbs up to uploads like this one.

      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.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.
