No, Doomsearch is still at doomsearch.com. That's Fraggle's, the Doomworld idgames search is Linguica's.

i think fraggle made doomsearch, but julian owns the domain for it. dw/idgames is a bit nicer though heh

except the doomworld one never finds anything if you dare put in more than one word, like "alpha plasma" or "alpha plasma gun" or even "plasma gun from the doom aplha", so you have to just put in "plasma" and trawl through the 230 results by hand, but if you dare to press 'back' (yes, im using IE not the obscureshitbrowser7.6 it was probably designed for) it goes back to a blank search page

The default search on idgames database is for filenames, and there are no files on 3darchives with more than one word because it isn't allowed (they have to be 8-letter DOS file names).

If you set it to something else (author, title, description, etc) it'll quite happily search for things with more than one word. Of course if there is nothing containing all the words you've typed in, it won't find anything.

I think the search function is a bit less powerful than that - it appears just to search for the sequence of text you have entered. For instance, searching "Whole textfile" for "Hell Revealed" gives 35 results, while searching for "Revealed Hell" or "Hell Revealed" (with a double space) gives zero results.

Doomsearch still exists, but the server its on has been down for the past week or so, so its inaccessible. I suggest you just use Ling's idgames search instead, as its better anyway.
