interested people and source code hackers, who
look out for some inspiration.
Primary purpose : Historical reasons.
Title : DOOM for Windows --> WinDOOM Build 001
Filename : WINDOOM.EXE WINDOOM-.EXE
Release date : 1994
Author : id Software, Inc. and Microsoft Corporation
Email Address : -
Description : It is an old Beta version of Microsofts DooM
version. It works with the IWADs of DooM 1.2,
1.666, 1.9 and also Ultimate DooM. But you can't
access the levels of the fourth episode in
Ultimate doom. It does not work with the
shareware version of DooM, not with DooM2,
and also not with the Final DooM IWADS.
I have verified, that the -file and the -warp
parameter work. Maybe there are also others.

[Note by the uploader: I discovered the above listed files on an old
doom-level-cd, called '1001 nights of DooM', within a file with the name
WDOOM.ZIP. All these files have been also distributed in the zip files
WINDM1.ZIP and WINDM2.ZIP. In those two zips was README.TXT not included.
It was obviously later added by an unknown person. WINDOOM.CFG in
WINDM1.ZIP has another timestamp than that in WDOOM.ZIP. For the
completists amoung you, that file is included here in WINDOOM_cfg.zip.]
Other files required : A DooM IWAD.

Game : DOOM
* Additional notes *
- The README.TXT talks about WIN32S. That's an upgrade by Microsoft to make
Win3.x able to run 32bit programs. You find it with any search-engine in
the WWW as win32s.zip. If your OS is WIN9x, NT or better, you don't need
- The officially reased version of WinDOOM can be downloaded from this
from the /idgames -ftp-archives (see list of mirrors below).
It comes with the shareware IWAD, but works also with Registered DooM,
Ultimate DooM, DooM2 and Final DooM.
