Updates for Ultimate Doom and Doom 2 showed up in my Steam download sections, but why?

Recommended Posts

Just a few minutes ago, I was checking to see if any of my games had updates via Steam and there were two updates, one for Ultimate Doom and the other for Doom 2. Both updates are around 270-300 megabytes, but no Steam news came out for either of them.

 

Has anyone else gotten these updates and figured out what they're for?

That's what they did. The Bethesda Unity port is under the rerelease folder.

Back up your wads, dont get the awful unity port...

Or get it from GOG.com

Or pirate it!

 

Basically what i mean is, back up the GOOD wads and not the rotten stinky unity ones.

Thanks. My WADs were already copied to folders of source ports long before the update.

uh, the steam version still comes with completely unmodified vanilla iwads, as well as the old dosbox setup and original binaries, so there's no problems there...

Really? i thought it was modified since when i tried getting it out of my doom eternal install, it showed in gzdoom as "
DOOM: Unity edition".

 

EDIT: something along those lines

LoL. I love how everybody is scared that their WADs will all be gone. You can alternate between the two. Beth and ID wouldn't be evil and not allow you to keep your data, this is just their new way of promoting the new port. Don't be scared. All is fine.

you don't need to play the bethesda version, you can still play the dos version after the update

is there no point to buying final doom anymore if the port comes with tnt and plutonia?

One reason would be if you want the Doom2.exe that comes with Final Doom.

Interesting. Just downloaded the steam versions, and they already used my settings from the bethesda.net launcher versions, including the addons already installed.

Noticed I can use the original cheats now, no longer having to rely on the cheats menu. Also noticed that BTSX E2 now in fact has some of its dehacked stuff working, such as the instant death exit in map16. Probably because it was changed for the bethesda port, but Map14 is still using the regular ammo dropping zombiemen for it's final fight instead of the dehacked versions that the public version has, though.

Unfortunately, you can't do UV+ for the main games; only for add-ons.

Oh, I get what you're saying now. Where do you get BTSX anyway?

On the Unity port, just go to Add-ons, download it, and press f to activate it.
