  1. You essentially have 4 options to (legally) get Doom these days. Option 1 and 2: Buy them directly from Steam or GoG. Probably the easiest way to get them. These are uncensored releases, unlike the the BFG edition, which I'll get into in a second. Steam (complete classic collection) https://store.steampowered.com/sub/18397/ GoG Doom 2 + Final Doom https://www.gog.com/game/doom_ii_final_doom The Ultimate Doom (Doom 1) https://www.gog.com/game/the_ultimate_doom Option 3: Buy the BFG edition of Doom 3. Not only do you get Doom 3, you get Doom 1 and 2 with it. These versions are censored in very minor ways (such as the the cross on health kits being turned into a pill,) but it's still something to take into consideration. Steam https://store.steampowered.com/app/208200/Doom_3_BFG_Edition/ GoG https://www.gog.com/game/doom_3_bfg_edition Option 4: Buy an old copy of one of the many physical releases. Not much else to say. As for engines, you have a lot of options, but I'll simplify them for you. Pure Vanilla Run the standard DOOM2.exe or DOOM.exe in dosbox. Simple as that. I'd recommend using an engine called Chocolate-Doom, as it's one of the most "pure" ports released while still providing some quality of life features. No more patching stuff with dehacked. "Enhanced" Vanilla Prboom+ is the best option. The demo-er's choice, in my opinion. This can play boom enhanced stuff as well as stock vanilla stuff. ZDoom (I can't come up with a decent name for this section) GZDoom. If you want to get into the wealth of gameplay mods and various QoL features then you can't go wrong with this. ZDoom isn't supported anymore but it may be handy for the one time a map requires it. Have fun, and rip and tear.

    What do you listen to when you're playing Doom?

    I don't remember where I got it, but I like to throw an "expansion" of sorts of Demonsteele's "nowthatswhatIcallmidi" pk3. It has more pop songs than the original, and the midi renditions of them are still pretty good. They sound nice when using Sound Canvas VA as the midi driver. Here's the file in case anyone might now or wants to listen to it. 3rdUnofficial-nowthatswhaticallmidi-expansion.zip

    Dens of Borsippa

    I clicked the "Random File" link on idgames and found this. Glad RNGesus found this for me. Had a lot of fun playing this. Great detail, and had a difficulty that wasn't just throwing enemies at you till you got annoyed. Looking forward to more stuff from you, my guy!
  4. @Jimmy Sounds great. I'll try and make something then!
  5. I'd be down to make something. Are the mappers set in stone or can people drop out at any time?

    The future of Doom...

    I'm wondering the same thing. How big would some controversy have to be to effectively kill the Doom community? Like, if Carmack came out and said "lol masters of doom was wrong we beat and raped kids, dogs, and seniors during the development and did 9/11"
  7. Neat. I'll mirror on thevidya.site Edit: mirror [REDACTED]

    Post your Doom video! [but don't quote video]

    I'm more surprised your PC can run nuts.

    Do you map on a pc or laptop?

    I don't map very often, but when I do, it's usually on a desktop. I've tried it on a fairly recent dell laptop (don't remember the model) and the main hurdle was getting my config for doombuilder set up. Plus, the tiny-ish screen and a low resolution of 1366x768 is a pain.

    How do you launch your Doom games/mods?

    Nice. I've been wanting to make something similar to this but ZDL satisfies what I was planning on adding to it. I may want to fork ZDL to add some quick config buttons and a -complevel switch.

    WADs with huge file sizes

    What are some of the biggest, in terms of file size, wads you ever played? Opening up windirstat and looking through my mod folder I found the biggest .wad to be Brutal Doom's Hell on Earth starter pack. What have you found?

    How much time does it take to finish your project?

    Depending on my mood I can shit out a decent layout in a few hours, but designing a set piece or balancing monster encounters takes me a day or two for a smaller map and a week or more for bigger ones. I usually don't bother with textures until the end so that can take me a day or so to make it look okay. I've only released a few single level shitstains so I don't know how correct I am about this.

    Not exactly what you're looking for, but the Hell on Earth Starter Pack is great imo. http://www.moddb.com/mods/brutal-doom/downloads/brutal-doom-hell-on-earth-starter-pack

    Heh, zDoom and authentic don't belong in the same sentence.
