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.

Terrible port...I just hate it so much. I'd rather use DOS than this piece of crap that messes with everything. No DOS you say? Zdoom then.

My first Doom experience was on friend's black-and-green crt monitor with win95 and this bad boy, Doom95 on it. Unforgettable thing. Before I learned about other ports, this was the way to play Doom.

This is the port that I use for all my dooming. The only time I don't use it is when the wad requires a more powerful port, like Zdoom. For me, it's the instant level select that sells it for me over vannila Doom. Plus, there's no jury rigging required for advanced computers (although i've heard of Vista having problems with it). All and all, a solid port.

Nearly obsolete nowadays, because there are many alternatives and because it was made for Windows 9x but can have issues in more modern releases of Microsoft's monstrosities. (Even id Software reverted to Doom on DOSBox for the recent Steam release.) Regardless, in its native environment it is relatively stable and rather faithful to the DOS version. Plus let's not forget this package includes Knee Deep in the Dead, and not just the Doom95 engine. [4/5] ~Chain Mail (11/2007)

I disagree with most people. While Doom95 offers a vanilla styled gameplay, it's full of bugs and crashes. I don't recommend this. Instead, I recommend Chocolate Doom. It's the true ultimate alternative to playing original Doom in it's vanilla state! Maybe some of you (like me) have Collector's Edition which (unfortunately) comes with this executable instead of old DOS exes. Don't worry, as I said, get Chocolate Doom! I give 1 star for Doom95 for reasons above. -Doomer95

I started playing PWADS with this and I've been hooked on DooM even more ever since. The sound effects are a slightly lower pitch, but despite it's flaws it's very accurate to DOS Doom/Doom2. ..Nowadays, Just use Zdoom, Zandronum or Zdaemon.

^^^wrong! Chocolate Doom is the best vanilla source port! Doom95 sucks because is full of bugs. I have Collector's Edition and Doom95 came with the IWADS instead of old DOS executable files. But don't worry, you can download Chocolate Doom if you want to experience the good old days of playing Doom! I give this source port 3/5.

I remember playing this as part of a Windows 95 Game Demo disc that came with our old computer. Boy, has it been so long? This was the way I played it well into my teens, when I discovered other sourceports. But yeah, if you want the Dos experience, get Chocolate Doom. 5/5 for pure nostalgia.

This is identical to what you get if you buy The Doom Collectors Edition (minus the PWADs). And how can you knock "pure" Doom? I played many, many Doom games with this before discovering ports and I still play it sometimes like this. If you ever want to play Doom the "original, old-fashioned way", this is a great way to do it. --WinstonSmith6079

This has to be the ultimate alternative to a pure doom experience with no added features except for the higher screen resolution support. It also doesn't crash when you get visplane overflows and runs fine under windows, of course. Plus it's a doom.exe and doom2.exe both in one. The only setbacks with Doom95 are you cant use dehacked with it, and there is a bug with demo recording (which can be fixed with the demo fix).

This game is a classic. I remember playing back in the DOS days where consoles were starting to get more and more advanced. But the graphics on this game always made things a winner and a PC is all you need (its your own console) to enjoy a classic gem like this!

      I was wowed by the amount of special effects on display for something as simple as vanilla Doom 2. Despite complains about the gameplay, I found myself enjoying it for the most part; it only felt a bit wonky to have the monsters teleporting in random locations which wasn't the most ideal setup for the amount of close quarters combat you'll be having in some tighter spaces. Someone could end up not having a good time with the monster placement getting randomized while it plays nicer for others. There's some dark caves and vent tunnels, and lots of wonderful little touches throughout like animated vent fans, a plane taking off, a computer running Doom II and other detail treasures. I would liken it to a Doom museum with a gameplay gimmick that may not fancy most Doomers out there, but I quite enjoyed my time exploring the world (or moon) of Phobos. I only wish it had more maps.

      10 out of 10. Better than Viva Pinata. Helped me become a better person. Greatest self-help Doom 2 mega-wad ever created.

      I'll admit to being indecisive with how to rank this experience, despite going in expecting to take it slow with the first map opening up with no action and just letting myself get pulled into the atmosphere. The music is pretty cool and sets the mood in places - I particularly liked destroying what seemed to be some kind of device which led to the next map blaring an alarm as I scrambled around the place. It's got some nice moments that carry the action a little better but loses momentum with the frequency in maps that contain lots of halls, doors and enemies packed in a rather square-looking interior. Being a lover of old-school vanilla wads, I did have trouble committing myself by the time I reached the third map. The good points weren't enough to outweigh the negatives for me, but there's always a chance someone can appreciate what they were trying to accomplish for the time it was released.

      Xenomorph Base has some cool moments and nice details to it, though I did feel in some places it either felt unpolished or wasn't as engaging as I'd hoped it would be. It's got a nice introduction to the action and starts to pick up much better with the second and third maps, however it seemed to drop in quality by that point, though I did enjoy the last map even if it felt a little shorter than expected. It does feel like something that could have used more work in places but as it stands it's an okay enough romp to blaze through.
