    Complete /idgames Archive Downloads

    Your face is a thing. ;P The only thing that's completely unnecessary is bagging a perfectly legitimate way to download something just because it's not your chosen way.

    Yeah. Barney and Star Trek. ;P *giggles*

    Sure. I can combine the contents of the 16 zip files into one big 39.9 gigabyte zip file if you know of a fast and free host for the file.

    Complete /idgames Archive Downloads

    Setting an FTP client to download 37000+ files and having it done completely without errors isn't always that simple. You can always download these 16 zip files, extract the lot and then keep it updated with your FTP client. :P The re-zipping is just for the convenience of only needing to download 16 files and not 37000+ files. The files are stored in the zip files, there's no attempt to further compress them. Once you've got the archive, you can then keep it updated with your FTP client. :P The 7-Zip alternate downloads do exactly that. Most of the archive's zip files were decompressed before being compressed with 7-Zip. I don't feel that the 3.5 gigabytes that are saved are worth no longer getting to keep the archive's original zip files but the download option is there if it's needed.

    The preservation of the archive is already in good hands, the aim here is to just provide fast, convenient and flexible downloads of it (archive.org's download speeds aren't the best). If the interest is there, I may upload update files periodically to keep the downloads up-to-date and relevant.

    Complete /idgames Archive Downloads

    Have you ever wanted to download the entire /idgames archive (or even just a major section of it) without the hassle of trying to download and verify tens of thousands of files individually with an FTP client? Well, now you can! The /idgames archive currently holds 37187 files, which totals 39.9 gigabytes of data. This includes the /idstuff folder, which does contain 21.5 gigabytes of official idtech2+ engine content. I've stored all of the /idgames archive (except the idtech2+ /idstuff content) in seven self-contained zip files so that you can have the option of only downloading the sections you want... STORED ZIP FILE #1 CONTENTS: /docs /graphics /historic /idstuff (idtech1 only) /incoming /lmps /misc /music /newstuff /prefabs /roguestuff /skins /sounds /source /utils Download link - http://www.mediafire.com/file/5nouju7tt4bj5v8/idgms-s1.zip (2.56 gigabytes) STORED ZIP FILE #2 CONTENTS: /levels/doom /levels/doom2 (except /Ports) /levels/hacx /levels/heretic /levels/hexen /levels/reviews /levels/strife Download link - http://www.mediafire.com/file/jcq34njk6348jx8/idgms-s2.zip (3.06 gigabytes) STORED ZIP FILE #3 CONTENTS: /levels/doom2/Ports/megawads Download link - http://www.mediafire.com/file/t6c82i7k39rne88/idgms-s3.zip (2.53 gigabytes) STORED ZIP FILE #4 CONTENTS: /levels/doom2/Ports/0-9 /levels/doom2/Ports/a-c /levels/doom2/Ports/d-f Download link - http://www.mediafire.com/file/hledbnbl2m6mpux/idgms-s4.zip (2.40 gigabytes) STORED ZIP FILE #5 CONTENTS: /levels/doom2/Ports/g-i /levels/doom2/Ports/j-l /levels/doom2/Ports/m-o /levels/doom2/Ports/p-r Download link - http://www.mediafire.com/file/8bcnzisbr1zb22e/idgms-s5.zip (2.53 gigabytes) STORED ZIP FILE #6 CONTENTS: /deathmatch /levels/doom2/Ports/s-u /levels/doom2/Ports/v-z Download link - http://www.mediafire.com/file/gc7i29lmj3tts11/idgms-s6.zip (2.57 gigabytes) STORED ZIP FILE #7 CONTENTS: /combos /themes Download link - http://www.mediafire.com/file/7y5zozd4m3o6pls/idgms-s7.zip (2.73 gigabytes) I've also stored all the idtech2+ /idstuff content in nine self-contained zip files...

    Doom Content from Old PC Games Magazine CDs

    Winblows 10 Well, I signed up to archive.org and uploaded that PC Home disc as an ISO and also the files compressed with 7-Zip, which can be downloaded here: https://archive.org/details/PCHOME95 That disc also had some Heretic content if anyone was interested. I'll do some more discs in the coming days. Any tips or suggestions for these uploads are welcome. :)

    Doom Content from Old PC Games Magazine CDs

    If anyone was wondering, I took the photo of that disc on my pink bedspread lol. That will be my thing from now on. Shortly, I'll post a link to a directory listing of that entire disc and if it's not too off topic I'll provide the same for discs that I don't think have any Doom content. I'd be happy to upload any content for any game featured on the discs really - just PM me with any requests. Edit: Directory listing added to the OP. :)
  10. I have a bunch of CDs from old PC games magazines that I used to buy in the '90s and thought I'd share Doom content from them in the hope that there's some unique stuff in there somewhere. I'll start with a disc from PC Gamer (Australia) that has a couple dozen WADs. I haven't gone through all of them but ALIEN.ZIP possibly has a previously unreleased WAD called Alien Containment Facility - Level 1 (alienc1.wad)...

    Doomworld Community Top WADs of All Time

    NoisyVelvet: Your current votes haven't been accepted because you've voted for more than 20 WADs. ;(
  12. Thanks but I've tried both of those things and they've never worked.

    Doomworld Community Top WADs of All Time

    The tally in the OP has been updated. It's still pretty tight at the top. Just 10 votes separate Scythe 2 from the top-placed Alien Vendetta. Scythe and Sunlust both move back up a spot to #3 and #4 respectively. Going Down moves into the Top 10, up three places to #8.
  14. Well, I FUCKING HATE the taskbar thumbnail preview bullshit. I've tried everything to disable it but nothing works. It shits me to tears!
  15. DOOM1.WAD - The shareware episode of Doom is how most people got into Doom and it still stands the test of time. ;)
