Help with VR Doom

Recommended Posts

im trying to set up a 2 or 3 (or even 4) computer vr doom
i have downgraded to doom11 as reccomended in unofficial faq
i am in dos, as doom11 will not run in windows
i have dos 6.22 & 7, win3.11, win98se, win2k if any of these help
i am using the commands
dm -devparm -warp 31
dm -devparm -left -warp31
etc
and have also tried
ipxsetup -devparm -warp31 -nodes 2
ipxsetup -devparm -left -warp31 -nodes 2

doom will not start..

i have at my disposal quite a few comps and have tried many combos of two of these. none work.
why not?

Nice post. I can't help at the moment though, I'm busy with other stuff.

i have more stats on my dos net
im running comps with intel pro/100+ net adapters
my net.bat is as follows
lsl.com ;link support layer, some crappy novell pos
e100bodi.com ;intel pro/100+ net drivers of some kind (for dos)
ipxodi.com ;ipx drivers

im not running:
net init
net start

with the three .com's described above, doom2v19 works like a charm in dos and ipxsetup sees ipx (as opposed to "IPX not detected"). It pings back and forth and gets into the funny loading screen with the blue header, everything working fine... but down at the bottom, it says starting network something or another for one player. a couple statements later, it ejects me.

v1.1 does not use either dm.exe nor ipxsetup.exe... interesting, I didn't know that. It just uses the -net command. It's true that it doesn't run on Windows. I treid the other day, it gave some error. I even tried with the alternate DOS extenders, and no good.

thank you very much
it works pretty well (although a little jerky)
