Noob alert status DEFCON 1

Ok. This is day one here.

I can't figure it out.  Lol.  How in the world do I get something to play?  I downloaded a couple of doom variations from this site and the exe. files give me an error...   If someone would be kind enough to hook me up with a biginner's link.. I'd be ecstatic. I'm on a windows 10 system that was upgraded from win 7. 

Thank you so much...

Check out prboom+, gzdoom source ports. Create two different folders for them and include Doom, Doom II, Final Doom files in your new created folders with Doom source programs(mentioned in the start). For playing custom content, you can drag and drop those files over gzdoom/prboom+ and they will run automatically, just check text files or you can use launcher as ZDL.

Have fun! If you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to ask. People are very helpful and patient when it comes to questions about running, modifying, and designing maps for Doom.

We used to have a pinned thread explaining how to do this but it's kind of out of date at this point. We should probably do an updated one.
