doom2.wad - latest version size?

Recommended Posts


I am aware that the current version of Doom II is 1.9. I would just like to know exactly how big the doom2.wad 1.9 file is.

I have been using source ports over the years and I only have the WAD files from the Doom games, so there is no way of knowing what version I have.

If somebody here is confident that their Doom II version is 1.9, please reply stating the exact size of your doom2.wad. If yours matches mine, I have 1.9 and everything's fine.

Damn, my file size is 14,478 KB. I wonder what version I have...

Maybe one that has been corrupted in some way. Try re-installing from your original disks/CD.

Oh, and if you have an old version (e.g. the five disks that the original distribution of Doom2 tended to be), you will need to apply a series of patches to bring it up to version 1.9. This is a bit fiddly but not difficult.

The patches can be found here - ask if you need any help applying them.

Aha! I did have v1.9. After I reinstalled, the WAD file returned to its normal size. Doesn't need patching now!

Thanks again.
