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

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.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
