Music...

Recommended Posts

Hey I'm new to this and I've got a question that may seem stupid, but here goes... I got a DOOM95 CD and when I play it, the music sounds like it is playing real fast, like a record on 78rpm instead of 45. I am running Windows ME on a 2001 E-machine/633/256k/10G/48X CD Rom. Anyone out there had this problem and what do I do to fix it, the music just sounds stupid it plays so fast.

In other words: Get a source port.

My suggestion is that you get more than one source port to try out - pick the one you like the best and keep the others for wads that require a specific port.

ZDoom - has a lot of neato features that can be turned off if you don't like them.

JDoom - is first class opengl eyecandy.

PRBoom - is the most "Vanilla Doom"-like port and is good if you prefer Doom to play like in the old days.

These are the ones that I have. Dunno about the others.

The FAQ could use a hyperlinked index at the top. At the moment it looks like you're getting a Microsoft product's EULA thrown in your face.

What is the "DOOM95 CD"? Isn't "doom95" or doom95.zip the shareware?

All recent releases of Doom have come on CD with Doom 95 instead of the DOS executable.


The DOS executable is on the cd.

Not the two releases besides the original that I know of.

First off, deep into the CD is bullshit. Just open it up and look for Doom CD.

Second off, yes it is either Doom.exe or Doom2.exe depending on which disc you (Doom or Doom2 DUH).

I just checked my Doom 2 CD and found 'xxdoom2.exe'.

I stand corrected.

Some info on a few other ports:

Legacy: Allows you to play music from a CD and gives you lots of cool error messages :P

ZDOOMGL: Gives you all of the features of ZDOOM with OpenGL glitter that is not quite as stunning as JDOON's.

Desktop DOOM: Plays DOOM in a window and supports splitscreen multiplayer

EDGE: Its DDF technology goes above and beyond what can be done with DeHackEd

Vavoom: It has dynamic lighting and can be used with DOOM, Heretic or Hexen.

Also note that it allows 3d objects. :D

I can believe it offers doom95 as the main EXE, but I mean, the CD is actually called "DOOM 95"? I don't call a hat a glove, so I'm asking.

The online version of Final DOOM I got a while back (before GT Interactive was swallowed by Activision, or something like that) included the corresponding doom2.exe. The Collectors edition does not include DOS EXEs, though.
