looking for DOOM/DOOM 95 ad posters

Recommended Posts

I've tried googling and searching out the whazoo, but no avail...

I'm searching for some cool old school DOOM/ DOOM 95 ads that i've seen scanned places in the past...

one of them was in a really dark blue color, with added scratches, and showed a dismembered torso hanging from a ceiling in a dark room with his face down... (thats the main one im looking for) it has a quote, but i can remember... this same image is in the id anthology booklet on page, showing a section of the ad im talking about, but its only a piece of the whole ad


there was another, a couple others, but i remember one said "Dont shoot until you see the whites of their exposed skeletons".

I had these images years ago, and just really looking for them again at a nice resolution.


I'm almost positive they were DOOM for windows 95 ad's, but they could have been final doom ads, but not sure.

if anyone can help, i would greatly appreciate it...

i've checked here: http://www.doomworld.com/pageofdoom/images.html

and while this one is kinda like what im talking about : http://www.doomworld.com/pageofdoom/graphics/finalbig2.jpg

and this one: http://www.doomworld.com/pageofdoom/graphics/winbig.jpg

theres more like them that im looking for...

many thanks

Heres a piece of the ad I'm looking for, as I took a picture of the page that was in the original ID Anthology Booklet... as you can see, it has a snippit of the ad:




you can see the guy hanging from his arms, and in the bottom right corner of that snippet on the page, you can see some text... like the words "people" and "violence"

I'm almost positive it was a Ultimate DOOM ad, as u can see the ultimate doom logo is the same lettering on the bottom of the snippet (ignore the quake article snippet, they just had it laying on top of the doom one)


there were high-res scans of it some years ago along with others, and i've found a couple on the link i posted above to doomworld's media section, but still looking for this one.

one of the others i do remember the quotes.... "dont shoot until you see the whites of their exposed skeletons"

The words on that hanging guy poster were (forgive me if I'm not 100% accurate): "There are a lot of people who are totally opposed to violence... they're all dead." I've seen it on the net before, some years ago. Googling on the text doesn't turn up a scan of the poster, though.

yup, thats the one, and I'm having a hell of a time finding it. I think whatever hi-res scans were available years ago are long since gone, so I'm hoping someone out there had saved them and still has those files laying around... i did somewhere, but i've long since lost the cd i burnt them to...

here it is in the ID SOFTWARE office, obviously it still exists, as this picture was taken not very long ago... I knew ID had a picture of it and a poster of it on their walls, but that was from images of the old building... and here it is in the current building...

you can barely make it out, but its there:

AWESOME FIND!!!!!! thats the closest and best pic yet, but there was still a "scan" of what you see here floating out there along with a couple others....

this poster also has some more writing in the upper right hand corner in cursif (its hard to read, but I've made most of it out) You can read this if you rad it enlarged at an angle:

"Its doom in its original entirety, along with the all new ?demented?
episode four, "Thy Flesh Consumed". It's called "Ultimate DOOM". It's Simple. You kill or be killed."

?demented? = i think thats what it says, was hard to read, so i written characters sizes and forms to other more readable parts of the paragraph... CSI style :P


picture in question is: http://www.hardocp.com/image.html?image=MTAxMzc2MzExNnVjMFVGa1FZNlJfMV83X2wuanBn


I Noticed that this HardOCP page refers at the bottom of the article to link to a high-res zipped file with this picture, as well as the others, but the link is dead:

http://www.hardocp.com/files/idpics.zip

even then, i doubt it contains the scanned image that once existed (and I once had), but a hi-res shot would be better than nothing... (hell, this is better than nothing.)

getting closer, but almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades :)

little while longer, and I'm sure someone will come up with the scans...

alternatively, we're discussing this over at rome.ro too, and its even attracted the attention of Romero himself...

UPDATE: John Romero, John Carmack and even the agency that created the ad no longer have any copy of it themselves, nor its whereabouts.

Since it appears all the hi-res .jpg scans from several years back have pretty much vaporized off the net

The good news is that for all those DOOM memoribilia collectors out there, anyone who still has a printed poster or magazine ad of this can condier themselves extrememly lucky, since and all prints/posters have been lost/destroyed.

If anyone DOES have this ad OR the scanned images, many of us would greatly appreciate it if you could upload a high quality scan of this ad (or the old .jpg files).
