About This File

DOOM95.EXE will work with any DOOM or DOOM2 main wadfile.

With DOOM95, you no longer need to keep your main wads in seperate directories. Copy all main wad files (DOOM.WAD, DOOM2.WAD, PLUTONIA.WAD, TNT.WAD, etc) to the DOOM95 directory and launch DOOM95. To play, choose the appropriate wad file from the launcher and then start the game.

FFS people, stop reviewing this like it's new - it's history. And if you really do want history, play the DOS version on a 486 ($10 from eBay). If you just want the retro feel, then it's Chocolate Doom. Otherwise play PrBoom or ZDoom.

Best launcher interface, wish more modern ports would emulate the launchers simple elegant design.

meh..I never really liked Doom95. The thing I always hated about it is how all the sound effects are inexplicably "slowed down" a tad and there's no option to fix it. And now that there's Chocolate Doom, Doom95 is rendered absolutely useless?!

Get Chocolate or PrBoom+ instead. This port was rushed out the door by Microsoft.

Ah the memories I have of this. Fond ones too. Doom 2 for Christmas, then Final Doom the following one. Eventually I discovered Icarus Alien Vanguard... then I discovered that there were superior ports out there. but for a pure doom experience without DOS, this is it. 5/5

I used this for years with the Maximum wad CD before I discovered the Doom ports, it's pretty good even now, although the blur effect screws up with my newer computer

Im pretty sure quite a few of us (Like me) used this port before discovering other ports. Man....this port is about as close to normal doom you can get on windows.d Definately should be an automatic 5*

this is the wad that replaced the original doom.exe engine and subsequently made it unavailable to mainstream distribution. the fact that i cannot have THE ORIGINAL FILES without either trusting that someone's disks still work or that i may find some other means is the sign of only one thing: that this is the scummiest thing to have ever happened to the world of doom... ZERO STARS

      The more fancy crap I see extending the basic Doom engine with confusing gargantu-slaughter maps, scripts, pointless effects and mods, the more I love authors that just stick to basics and deliver. The former rarely add anything to the enjoyment of the game and usually just detract. The latter understand why we love basic Doom and simply don't want or need the extra crap. This wad delivers for the traditionalists. A very solid vanilla friendly megawad with a 90%+ rate of maps that are enjoyable and replayable. Bravo guys. More please. I'm giving this a 5 - because it deserves one when compared to much of the modern stuff.

      Quoting the description: False. It should say "The first 11 maps", which are also all the maps.   This WAD is like a bizarro Doom 2, an alternate universe Doom 2 where the maps are the same, but different at the same time. Like strangely mangled versions of themselves. You will recognize all elements of all maps because the similarities are striking. Up to and including MAP07 the WAD feels like a bootlegged version of Doom 2. Only since MAP08 the WAD begins to feel like it stands on its own, despite still paying homages and still using familiar elements.   However, for what they are, the maps play well, with some difficult moments happening here and there. Looks are barren, but true to Doom 2. In overall, the WAD is not bad, but it's head-scratchy with its bootleggy-weirdness.

      It was alright, my only problem was too many archviles.

      if I were to describe overall gameplay, it would be chaotic, but not in a Hell Revealed manner. it's chaotic in that you will spend a lot of time in that blue area, when you step on things they can sometimes reveal monsters which come into the area, and you are always on your toes because you never know which monsters spawn in and where. the tiny windows are honestly annoying, as is having to wait for the 30-second bars to raise up for each switch press so I can reach the blue key. the room with the piano and the curtain was very, very well made and I liked that. that exit though, is absolutely horrible. why make it next-to-impossible to actually reach the exit with an annoying conveyor?   there's a lot to this, plenty of gimmicky gameplay and blue design that makes this one hell of a unique map, but sometimes the negative aspects get in the way. on the other hand, it's hard to tell what outweighs what more.

      cool how this one looks, gameplay is alright. nothing much else to it, really, except for a few deaf-flagged demons which I missed.
