    Jobs you can get away with playing doom in.

    My factory ALWAYS lets us play DOOM whenever we don't have any work to do. We have two rooms in the factory reserved for those times, a game room and a computer lab (I helped set up the lab and populate it with games on every computer). Right now DOOM's only on one of the computers, but when I go back on Monday, I'm gonna put it on the other three. I even donated a router and they're trying to bring in ethernet cables so we can play DOOM, StarCraft, Diablo II, and other games against each other...

    An MMO version of DOOM

    Is it possible? I was playing ZDaemon and Zandronum craving online multiplayer, and it just dawned on my that an MMO rendition of Classic DOOM would be stellar... If this has been discussed before though, I apologize.

    My take on BFG Edition

    The BFG Edition for me was so-so, especially since I own more than 1 copy of the original versions of the games. I'm REALLY glad they made it for PS3 though. DOOM hasn't been seen on PlayStation in over 15 years and I have no intention of buying a 360, so I'm very grateful for that move. However, there's also DOOM Classic Complete on PSN that has Final DOOM and the Master Levels, thus making it the only way I need to DOOM on PS3, as I already prefer Classic DOOM over DOOM 3.

    If Classic DOOM ever became freeware...

    ...what would be the first thing you'd do after finding out? If and when Classic DOOM became freeware, I swear, I'd make 500 CDs, each packaged with all the Classic DOOM games, and casually hand them out to ANYONE who didn't already own the game...

    An MMO version of DOOM

    I meant the levelling-up, but they both sound fun... EDIT: My local buddy looked at your post and said he likes the planetside idea. Whatever way it goes though, I'm sure it'll be exciting...
  7. EDIT: Asked a question that already got answered. :P
  8. Even though I can downgrade Ultimate DOOM to DOOM v1.1, then re-upgrade to DOOM Registered v1.9, I'd really like to buy this version someday, so I can at least say I bought the original version of DOOM. Which leads me to ask: Was Registered v1.9 ever packaged on CD and/or Floppy? It's hard to tell from Ebay and Amazon offers, so I figured I'd ask the pros...

    Downloadable cover for Doom 3 BFG PS3?

    I would've gladly helped you out here, but the place I usually get my DVD and Game Covers (cdcovers.cc) didn't have it either...

    Did DOOM Registered v1.9 ever come packaged on a CD?

    Thanks digger! You just made my day ;)
  11. I work at a factory in Traverse City MI, and am allowed to play DOOM on my laptop whenever there's no work to be done, which happens to be one of those days. :P. Not only that, I was even able to get away with putting DOOM and DOOM II on their game computer, as I used the GBA versions. :D So, as the title says, who here are lucky enough to be able to play our beloved shooter at work?

    Best way to doom on the go?

    Until I'm able to get another GBA SP, I just play the GBA versions of DOOM and DOOM II on my Xperia Play.

    Videos of first time playing Doom

    Some time mid 1997: My mom rents DOOM 64 from our local video store, I take it home, play it, get my mind blown. First time playing DOOM. July 10th 1998: After my birthday party, I go to my Windows 95 computer, install Depths of DOOM Trilogy, fire up Ultimate DOOM under DOOM 95, and although initially disappointed that it wasn't like DOOM 64, get consumed nevertheless. First time playing DOOM for REAL.
  14. ...and DOOM II is now my DEFINITIVE Favorite Game of All Time!

    The only thing that was keeping it from being my favorite game was Super Street Fighter II Turbo and my love for fighting games. This changed after a brief visit to Shoryuken.com, where, even though I can beat the game and am pretty good at it, I was basically told "YOUR SKILL IS NOT ENOUGH". And then they had to throw in "Maybe a desk job would fit you better".

    Now I've been playing and loving video games since I was 5 years old, so the fact they think I shouldn't even be playing them pretty much sealed their doom (no pun intended). I'll still play fighting games, but if I had to change my Favorite Game of All Time for any reason, it will never be a fighting game again. Besides, there's a LOT of classic and a few modern shooters I DO enjoy playing.

    To Doomworld, where you're free to love what you do and not have to have the skill or the experience to do it.

      Already learned that the hard way a long time ago.

      I don't really know what "shit" they pulled in the 2011 game

      No PC port, perhaps. It's admittedly disappointing.

      I'm pretty curious about what you posted on shoryuken.com to get that sort of replies. Beating the game in arcade mode has nothing to do with competetive gameplay in street fighter. So logging on to shoryuken.com and being all smug about beating Seth on the hardest difficulty will most certainly cause people to either laugh and troll or sigh at the naive "smugness".

      Shoryuken.com has been a goldmine for me when I was learning new characters and their bnb's, but other than that it's a pretty lame forum. The whole competetive gaming scene is full of fanboys and the gossip and bullshit is often worse than the shit you can read in various gossip papers about celebreties.

      The only reason to even register on shoryuken.com is if you're looking for practice buddies or want to show off your ultra-cool-super-modified-fightstick-deluxe-sanwa-whatever.

    Thinking about buying DOOM II in a Box...

    I just bought the boxset you guys were pinpointing me towards. Thanks for your help! Much appreciated. Plus, with fraggle's comment (which I actually read AFTER buying the boxset), that will make this an even bigger trinket in my grand archive...

    Thinking about buying DOOM II in a Box...

    I already have 5 official PC copies of DOOM II (Hey, you can never have too many copies of DOOM, especially when it's your favorite game of all time!). I'd like to get another one, this time in its original box complete. Here's the two I have my eye on currently: http://www.ebay.com/itm/id-Doom-II-2-Rare-Vintage-Computer-Game-Big-Box-/170964492448?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item27ce4720a0 http://www.ebay.com/itm/DOOM-II-2-PC-CD-ROM-BIG-BOX-GT-INTERACTIVE-SOFTWARE-1995-/330834005367?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item4d073e4d77 Which one do you guys think is the best one to buy? This doesn't mean I'll buy it immediately, but it's something I'll definitely consider...
  17. I had to ask this, because of the game being almost 20 years old, and with all those console and source ports out there. Vanilla DOOM is my main way of playing the classic DOOM games. DOOM II is my favorite game of all time, and one of the objectives for a game to be my favorite, is that I have to be able to play and beat the game in its original form. Plus I enjoy the original look and feel of the game. For XP, 7, and any other modern computers, I obviously use DOSBox to play Vanilla DOOM. I stated in another thread that I made an archive of all the Vanilla DOOM games set up to run good in DOSBox with little to no trouble, with multiplayer capability as well. I actually have a Windows 98 computer, passed down from my grandparents, that can run Vanilla DOOM and several other DOS games. It's still in very good condition. Plus, I notified a computer center near where I live to keep an eye out for a true DOS computer, my definitive Vanilla DOOM machine. They found one, and I'm gonna pick it up from them on Wednesday for a TBD price. As for source ports, my favorites to use are currently: Chocolate DOOM (for the few computers I know that don't like DOSBox) DOOM Legacy (For playing DOOM with local gamers on LAN) Risen3D (for playing DOOM in HD) ZDaemon (for playing DOOM online)
  18. Select one of the following: A) Keyboard Only B) Keyboard & Mouse C) Gamepad D) Other and explain why you like that controller the best. If you select D, don't forget to say what controller it is. Consoles are out of the debate since you use a gamepad for pretty much every console version of DOOM. I go back and forth between A and B. I love using A because of the nostalgic feel and because of how portable it is, but when playing seriously on a high difficulty or online deathmatch (not co-op), I'll often use B instead.
  19. Mystery Man in 3D

    What controller do you use to play DOOM on PC?

    I'm left-handed and I always use the mouse with my right hand. I actually do a very good job that way!

    Your DOOM Collection

    Post images or videos of your DOOM collection for everyone to see! Here's mine: VIDEO UPLOAD FAILED. I'LL TRY AGAIN LATER.

    Where do you keep your IWADs?

    Your DOOM Collection

    Ugh. The video failed to upload. I'll do it again later today...

    What do you people know about this? DOOM MS DOS

    Sorry Charlie Nash. I have that same exact disc. Got it at a local garage sale for just $2. I've used it. It's actually v1.2 of DOOM, NOT v1.9. Even though it's not really rare, the v1.2 might give it a little bit of value...

    Installing Master Levels on Windows 7

    What Dragonsbrethren said. I'd never upload the content you have to pay for on here, unless it became freeware (fat chance :P).

    Installing Master Levels on Windows 7

    http://www16.zippyshare.com/v/32766708/file.html If you or anyone reading this would like this idiot-proof DOSBox setup for any of their Vanilla DOOM games, just ask me and I'll upload it. Let me know if you have any trouble with it.
