About This File

It is an old Beta version of Microsoft's Doom port. It's made for DOOM II v1.8 (though the latest IWADs will work as well), but will also run DOOM. One convenient feature it provides is that if when executed it doesn't find an IWAD it'll let you browse for one (so you don't have to necessarily run it from the Doom2 directory.)

It's a very good port for being released before Doom 95... but the Music is delayed, the sound efects are in bad quality and the loading screens are hell! I'm curious how it would be to play NETDOOM.exe though.

Great for its own

I'm stunned that this runs as well as it does on a 64bit Windows 8 machine.. the sound effects are slightly delayed though and it crashes looking for HELP2 if you let it sit long enough, but it seems to be free of a TON of bugs which plagued Doom95.. I'm not even sure the two are related, looking at this..

I believe I used to have this in the old days. It's not really interesting, though.

^ It's very interesting! This seems like it was shaping up to be a very good port, there are only a few small bugs/oversights, yet it got shelved in favor of Doom 95...which has much worse bugs than anything in this. Amazingly, this still runs on Win7 x64 without any significant problems other than a lack of music and a palette issue on the text/end screens.

      Short TC with a lovely western setting. I wish it was longer, but it's great nonetheless.

      I'm not the biggest fan of the Serenity series, but Infinity might be its best entry. The maps are mostly fun to navigate and they feature some decent design. I'm just not sure I like the way the fights are designed. It's not uncommon for rooms to be packed with enemies (mostly sergeants). I found myself blasting my shotgun through a doorway a bit too often for my tastes. Still, it features some nice MIDIs, so the experience is mostly fun.

      Fava Beans is a great episode that's very reminiscent of E1's style. The maps, especially back half, are smartly laid out and feature lots of windows, which give the WAD a great look. It's on the easier side overall, as it doesn't use Cacos and Barons all that much, but it was still a blast to play through.

      This is definitely one of my favorite 1994 release. The Evil Unleashed continues in the steps of TiC's previous WAD, Slaughter Until Death, and refines the experience even further. The maps are full of tight spaces with packs of enemies ready to be mowed down. The architecture is simple but effective, complemented by a handful of nasty crushers. Good stuff.
