BLEEP BLOOP BLOP BLERRRRRRRARARAR. Ahh... that sure does bring back some memories. 4/5x
Play this with EGA doom 2 and you can get the ultimate oldskool experience.x
This is a collection of samples of Doom's original PC speaker sound effects - later Doom ports, such as Chocolate Doom, can emulate the PC speaker engine, but that was eight years in the future in 1999! This isn't quite 100% accurate because it can play several sounds at once, the original could only play one at a time. The reverse-engineered PC speaker specification is at id=14832.x
Brilliant, and a good compliment to the various 8-bit Nintendo Doom sound wads. This is even cruder - the sounds are blips and beeps, but surprisingly they work, and evoke the real sounds quite well. The chainsaw is intolerable though.x
