Problems with downloading Action Doom 2

Recommended Posts

when trying to download it off its original site, the problem i have is this- im on dialup internet, it kicks me off after about 4 or maybe 5 hours, and no download manager type program i try on it can resume the downloading. so is there any way i can get this wad?
thanks!

Looks like Scuba Steve really should have released it in 1.44MB sized chunks.

Have you tried the archive mirrors? I know some don't support download resumption.
Alternately - grab a flash drive and head for your local Internet Cafe or buy a copy.


No offense but why should anybody want to buy a Doom 2 MOD?

And ten freaken bucks?!?!?!?!?! Give me a break.

You'll do it for the warm inner glow you'll feel - knowing that you've helped a small independent game developer stave off destitution and starvation for another day or two. ;-)

Because it's a very well done total conversion and you want to support indie game developers?

Because the author (Scuba Steve) knows where you live, and he has magical powers that will unleash the legions of hell upon YOU! (Play dramatic soundtrack aka post-hell theme)

My sarcasm fails badly...

Anyway on topic.

Internet cafés could help you out, but I'm sure sometimes they make you pay for each session using the computer (some Internet cafés charge you £2.50 for 10 minutes in my area). Take a flash drive along with you as well.

Ten bucks is not enough, its worth well over 100 bucks by now. An real collectors item.

Not really, because you can buy it from the website. For 10 bucks.

The only difference between the idgames download and those from the website is the custom exe that runs Action Doom 2 without Doom. The exe doesn't change anything so you're not missing any features, you'll just have to run the game as a pwad.

I'm going to read your custom title and say:

You're a moron.

But, you get so much more! With the FULL paid version you get several copy pasted maps with no gameplay and a cool looking box.

Totally worth my 10 bucks. THANKS SCOOBAH.

Fuck I'd pay for it if the download option wasn't so easily available. Just out of spite I think I may buy a copy now.

I bought a copy, had it signed by the big man himself, and I wouldn't even consider selling it for $100. Well, maybe, but I'd buy ten more copies and have Scuba sign each one.

God, I could make a fortune!
