    It matches that exactly, yes.

    Well, the jewel case may be a dead-end, because I don't think it's the original. It seems like he added the back cover into it and put the booklet in the front and nothing indicates that it would've been the original jewel case. The only text towards the inside circle of the CD is DOOTWO1050, but I have no idea what to check that against?

    I guess I have no way of knowing for certain unless someone else can confirm the cover art, but I wouldn't be surprised given how religiously this guy collected games from that era. I think he worked in some sort of a gaming store and so was up to date on new releases, etc, and seemed to make it his life goal to collect and play as many games as possible, lol. He started with PC related gaming pretty early... from the AMIGA / Commodore programming days onward.

    Both in the US, although I have no way of saying for certain that his copy was from the US. Obtained his collection after he had passed away, so really don't know much for certain at all. I noticed the lack of ESRB rating right away as well and was one of the reasons I wondered if it was legit, but is it possible that some of the first releases didn't have it since ESRB was founded right around the time Doom II was released?

    Well, thank you all for your time and info, but since it doesn't seem like I'm making too much more headway in figuring out what this CD is, I'm just going to throw it up for auction on Ebay and see where it ends up. The collector had a bunch of Doom accessory CD's (level packs, editors, hints / tips, etc) that I'll put up as well. If any of you would be interested in those, let me know and I'd be happy to toss you a link (I don't know what rules this forum has about linking things like that on threads, but figured people here might be some of the most interested). I'm still curious about the CD, so if someone figures out something more, please do share to sate my curiosity. :P

    It does check out to be the Doom1 Beta 1.666 shareware version after all according to this list: https://soulsphere.org/random/doom-hashsums.csv MD5 value: c428ea394dc52835f2580d5bfd50d76f For the Doom2.WAD I checked it just copying it to my hard drive from the CD. That would still yield a valid result, right?

    You're right, I didn't check the WAD file for Doom 1 (although I did check the Doom2 WAD file as you asked earlier and the results checked out to v1.66, see above), but the MD5 sums for the install files were different, for what that's worth. Installing it via DosBox right now, and will let you know in a sec.

    I checked the md5 sums of the files and they're different, so doesn't appear to be the shareware version in the Doom1 folder.

    I found this elsewhere online, but seems to be an exact match for the text from the readme file in my Doom 2 folder of the CD. Any thoughts?

    That did the trick, the readme seems to mostly be about multiplayer troubleshooting? Is there an easy way to copy the text in order to upload here in a text file or something? Or is it ok to upload the .exe file in a zip format?

    Identifying a Doom II CD

    Wow, I didn't expect so many responses so fast. :P That's actually not even a front cover, just the front of the small manual / booklet. The jewel case looks to be non-original, and the collector I got it from inserted the manual and back cover. I actually can't run any of the .exe files on this 64bit Win10 PC. Even in Win95 compatibility mode. I don't know much about getting old software to run, so maybe I'm missing something? Running it from CMD prompt just tells me it's not compatible with the 64bit OS. I copied the .WAD file and calculated the MD5/SHA1 sums that way, hopefully that comes out the same. (see pics below, I'm not sure how to embed them in the text) See above, any suggestions on how to open / read it? Just opening with notepad understandably doesn't result in anything readable. Well, I am looking to sell it. :P I'll attach some pics of the booklet. Seems to match exactly, except doesn't have any of the pricing / advertisement info in the back. It just ends after the enemy ID section. Also, I did notice in the system requirements (see pic) it mentions it's for an IBM machine. Copyright info in the booklet seems to list contact info for the US. Thanks for all the replies so far.

    Identifying a Doom II CD

    Hi all, I'm not sure if this forum is the right place to post this, but I recently came across a Doom II CD and was planning to sell it, but couldn't figure out which version the CD was. The CD art isn't depicted anywhere as part of the official Doom II CD art, which has made me wonder if this is a bootlegged copy? Have any of you ever seen this CD before, or could you help point me in the right direction in trying to identify it?
