Was playing 'Hellbound' mega wad earlier this evening and was thinking to myself: 'Geez.....GZDoom is so great!!'

What if I told you that this megawad can run on Chocolate Doom? No, even better, with all the right tools, you can play this on DOSBOX.

If you get Doom2plus, a version of Doom2.exe with greatly increased visplane limits and such, you probably could run it in DosBox...

 

Also I agree with GZDoom being great!

You can also download BOOM for DOS on IDGAMES.

Whilst on that topic, i heavily hope these get more use. The concept of staying fully vanilla but raising just the base parameters should make up for an interesting basis to make new quasi-vanilla WADS. I know of only a few mapsets that actively require DoomP/Doom2P for that reason.

 

One reason for the lack of visibility might be in its inclusion to /idgames. Because it relies on the existing executables, one would need to use the shareware EXE's to distribute these on /idgames (As full versions obviously are a no go). I believe this is how Alpha Accident: Terra Nova does this aswell as the upcoming Gods & Guardians.

 

So shareware Doom + DoomP/Doom2P and with DeHackEd could be a good inspiration for new and exciting mapsets, whilst staying within purist parameters of also being able to run in DOS.

It's actually limit-removing, so the most minimum port you'll need is Crispy Doom.
