About This File

This is a reconstruction of a Doom poster seen in a photo of Id's offices. The poster features a red demon face set against a black background, a large version of the image that appeared on the cover of the "Ultimate Doom" box. The poster itself apparently was never commercially available, implying that the poster in the Id photo was a one-off one-of-a-kind print.

This is a high quality file suitable for printing as a poster at a print shop. As a result, the file itself is very large.

I (fraggle) am uploading this to the idgames archive; Peter Heinemann gave me this file to host several years ago as he needed web hosting for it. His original description of this file is included below.

Taking a look at this again I can't help noticing that the color balance seems messed up and the demon (which is supposed to be bright red) is actually pink. I'm guessing it was caused by Peter Heinemann's scanner and was never properly corrected.

 

Fixing the image is easy in the GIMP. Use the Hue-Saturation tool to adjust only red; make the Hue component +15. Doing this also seems to fix some weird color issues with the Doom logo itself.

I'm stuck on map03 of the poster. I can't defeat the mutant cacodemons in the lab and I can't solve the puzzle in the sewers. Still a good WAD though. :) Seriously tho, it's pretty ugly.

This is a 19mb, 4136x6201 PNG file. It's based on the Baron of Hell image here http://preview.tinyu rl.com/yukwgj - I think it's a close-up of one of the models that Adrian Carmack made, tinted red. I have to give it five stars, because it does exactly what it sets out to do, but I was never a fan of that poster. It is however a great source for the original Doom logo (you could crop on the logo and use it as a desktop background).

      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.
