    Warming Up
  1. Around 1996/1997 (I was about seven), my first FPS experiences were Doom, Heretic and Blake Stone. And here I am, almost twenty years later, still playing the same games. I guess I'm not very good at moving on. In fact: I just beat the registered version of Heretic, I'm pretty sure for the first time, about two weeks ago. I'm guess that must be some kind of personal record for "game that look me longest (in years, anyway) to beat"! Or, as my forum title suggest, I'm only "warming up". :-)

    Doom with MIDI sound effects

    Thanks, I just wasted half an hour playing Doom II with this. Silly as it may be, the performances aren't half bad.

    Meet John Romero

    It was made by TeamTNT, but released as a commercial id product. So in my view it counts as "Doom 2.5". Although one could argue that Quake wasn't much more than a re-skinned Doom either.

    Meet John Romero

    Well, they did kind of do that with Final Doom. Interesting video, thanks for linking it.

    Doomworld John Romero Q&A?

    I wanna buy that boxed copy of Spear of Destiny, just so I can get $10 off on my Keen 6 order.

    DOOM Retro v4.6.2 (updated September 1, 2022)

    I don't post here much, but I wanted to say thanks for your work on this - it has become my go-to Doom playing experience for the last couple of weeks. I don't normally use source ports much (mostly a vanilla player), but this one seems to "hit the spot" for me currently.

    Random old FPS Ports?

    There's WinROTT GL, that one's pretty good.

    Hexen: Edge of Chaos Update

    That trailer looks insanely cool.

    Hi, newbie, looking for making of doom2

    There's also this little teaser/preview video which was released just prior to Doom 2's release.

    I usually just hold down the right mouse button.

    How big is your Doom folder?

    About 6/7 gigs. Most of it came from the idstuff archives.

    TNT Map31 Officially fixed in some versions

    This thread caught my attention and for the sake of curiousity I checked my own copy of the Anthology. Guess what? I've got the 11/96 version as well! I wonder how many of these were made. I checked a friend's copy too, which had the 6/96 version. It does seem strange that id only decided to include the patched version in some packages instead of all of them. I wonder if there's any other differences between these different versions of the id Anthology... Could anyone be bothered to check? (My friend's out of town currently.)

    Has anyone played every Doom game?

    Wow, it's been a while! I started playing Doom in 96/97..? Not sure. Anyway, I got my start playing a pirated (!!!) copy of Doom II on a 486/33. At the time I did not realize this was actually illegal, I think a friend just installed it on my computer at some point without really telling me much about what it was. I discovered an icon called WinDoom (strangely, this was the beta build that was floating around on the net prior to Doom 95's release) and blasted away soon enough. I then moved on to Doom Shareware, which I located on some demo cd my dad (God bless him) got me for my birthday around the same time. Good times. Later I got all the classic Doom series games legally through the id download store (and then later I got the Doom Collector's Edition as well). They were goddamn expensive too at that time (2003)! Running them on Win 9x was fine, but XP was a fucking nightmare using the Doom 95 launcher (which came with the 2003 download version for some reason). I ran into Doomsday/jDoom in 2003/4 and started using that instead. Nowadays, I use zDoom, mostly. These are the Doom games I own (I've played and finished them all, except for Plutonia): Ultimate Doom / Final Doom (id download store) Doom Collector's Edition (the one with the DOOM3 preview disc) id Anthology (this one actually included both DOS and Win95 versions of the games - weird). Oh, and Doom 3, which I got on release date. It's a great game too, but in a totally different league. I really don't associate it with the classic Doom games. I'm not sure why classic Doom still holds up so well. Perhaps it's got to do with the basic (yet solid) gameplay, both single- and multi-player (I use zDaemon for this, by the way - Skulltag won't run on my system). Also, there's a HUGE amount of community-made materials (level, sound, graphic mods, as well as the source ports which make the game playable on a wide range of systems) out there. A community that's been very active over the course of 15 years! Now that's impressive! Shouts out to everyone still playing this now-ancient game! LONG LIVE DOOM!
