BFG edition = 2.0?

Recommended Posts

I wouldn't really call it "2.0" as it's a different client than doom2.exe

The new client has increased limits, but cannot be used to play PWADs as it's hardcoded into Doom 3 BFG's interface, or something like it.

It's a kind of half-assed version that's tacked on Doom 3 as a bonus. Its only merit is including the new "No Rest For the Living" episode, which is quite good and worth a playthrough; but the Ultimate Doom and Doom II IWADs are not changed for the better at all.

And it just ripped No Rest For the Living from the Xbox 360 Live Arcade version of Doom II, the wads even match multiple checksums.

Doom 3 BFG Edition still gave the average person the ability to play it on PC, though, which is cool. You could play it on PC before, but it took a little bit of hackery.

And DMCA-violating removal/defeat of "technological measures" which technically gives the government the ability to throw your ass into prison for 20 years and fine you $500,000.

Running chocolate doom or zdoom and pointing them to your wads is ... hackery?

Extracting nerve.wad from the xbox's weird and disgusting file system is.

It's a bit more involved than that. Because the legality of such measures is in question, as Quas pointed out, it'd probably be best if I didn't elaborate.
