Doom (high color) Desktop Theme

About This File

This Desktop Theme is for Windows 95 PC's with the Plus! Pack(duh!)

You must be running in High Color (16k) or True Color (24k) and have 'Show Icons in using all possible colors' checked in your Display | Plus! control panel tab. To do this, right-click an empty area of the desktop, and choose Properties. On the 'Plus!' tab, check 'Show Icons in using all possible colors' and 'Stretch desktop wallpaper to fit the screen'. Now click the 'Settings' tab. On the 'Color Pallette', choose 'High Color'. Reboot your machine to make these changes when it prompts you to. If you don't have High Color available as a choice, you'll need to get an updated video driver first. While detailed instructions on how to do this are beyond the scope of this Readme file, I will say that most video card manufacturers have a web page with drivers available there.

Unzip all of the files in this archive into your themes directory, usually c:\Program Files\Plus!\Themes. Use Winzip if you have it. Run Desktop Themes from the Control Panel (Start | Settings | Control Panel | Desktop Themes).

From the Theme drop down menu, choose Doom (high color). Make sure all of the checkboxes are checked, and click Apply or OK. You're done! Enjoy.

The two marine cursors are pretty cool, I'm gonna use them. Better than those 8 color ones from the olden days!

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
