Do you still have your copy of Doom?

Recommended Posts

Cause i do. But do you still play it?

Well, this is a community for Doom players so... I would assume a good proportion of the people who come here still play it? The answer to your question is yes for me.

Doom95 doesn't run all that well on Win 7, but I'm still using the IWAD if that counts.

Nope, I never even had a copy of Doom. The last 20 or so years of my life have all been an elaborate illusion woven together by unseen supernatural forces, for the sole purpose of tricking me into thinking I own and play my very own copy of Doom.

I had physical copies of The Ultimate DOOM, DOOM II, Final DOOM and Master Levels, all published by GT and dated '96 on the IWADs (Final Doom was amusingly 6/06/96). I also had PSX Doom and PSX Final Doom. They're all in storage right now though.

Doom Collector's Edition, Master Levels CD, Quake Shareware CD, a couple floppy sets somewhere, Steam release, GOG.com release, Doom 64, Doom 3 + RoE on Steam and Xbox, and Doom 3: BFG Edition on Steam.

Yup, I think I have it cut out for me :)

I have the SNES, n64, GBA (Doom1 and Doom2), and xbox360 versions.

I haven't had my (sorely missed) Ultimate Doom box for about 15 years now. Just been continually copying the iwad over and over and over... It's survived many generations now.

The Doom2 I had growing up was an illegal pirate copy my brother found for me. Since I own the hard copy on 360 and have legally digitally downloaded it at least once since, I can sleep easy knowing I won't spend an eternity in HELL with the other freeloaders.

I still have the boxes and manuals for my copies, but I've lost the original floppies. I have Ultimate Doom and Final Doom on CD-ROM still. In terms of strict lineage, I'm probably playing a warezed copy of the wads, rather than try to patch the ones I bought (version 1.666 of doom2).

I still have my copy of Final Doom, Heretic and Hexen. But the original floppies with Doom 1 and 2 have gotten lost during the late 90's when the low resolution graphics, combined with increasing system incompatibilities made the game unappealing.

I only returned to Doom when the first decent (read: Windows and High-res) ports appeared.

Thank god I still had the IWADs on some backup CD...

I still have the other games because I bought them after 'rediscovering' the game.

I still have my original 1994 '250 Games' CD which Doom v1.1 shareware came on. That was my first experience of the game!

Also Steam and bought Final Doom about 15 years ago.

now if I could get the Masters disk to work....

If you're encountering an "Unsupported 16-Bit Application" error when attempting to install the Master Levels - try installing through DOSBox. Worked like a charm for me.

My Doom2.wad is the same individual file that my father had on a DOS computer in the 90s (I don't know about its origin, though), as he always preserved Doom 2 (along with several other DOS games) on our later computers. Actually, it was Doom 2 version 1.666. I have patched it to v1.9 in year 2011/12/13 (not sure when exactly).

esselfortium,

I was under an impression that Voros was just trying to make an ironic "joke", since he started his reply with mentioning "upside day", which is presumably a typo for "upside-down day", which presumably means a day when everything is spoken upside-down, and then he tried to joke by using an upside-down form of a word "brilliant".

My original copies of Doom were pirated. It arrived on some 3.5" floppy discs because my dad was a computer programming contractor who had a lot of nerd programming buddies. He worked for some major US corporations like Kmart, Masco, and Dominos. Eventually we purchased a legitimate copy of both Doom games.

Sure. It's right here in my Steam library.


I also own physical copies, pretty recently acquired. Cheers, eBay.
