    In case someone is interested in reviving good old memories.

    I am having a blast lately re-vising old games.

    I made a guide in which you might be interested, if you'd like to
    replay Doom / Doom II / HacX / Heretic / Hexen / Check Quest

    Just thought about getting a new game, preferably a shooter.

    Hell, I'll replay the best one instead with this!

    Just need to get my hands on DOOM games again, seems there's a sale on Steam including Ultimate / Final DOOM, DOOM 2 and the Master Levels Pack for DOOM 2, for 14,99 €.

    I suppose my floppy disk DOS copies wouldn't work anymore, even if I could find them ;)

    Wow, this works with Heretic and Hexen too? so excited! The last shooter I completed was Doom 2 last summer, I relay these games from time to time and they give me much more enjoyment than any modern shooter.

    BTW how do these work nowadays with Steam?

    Do they run out-of-the-box or does one need to use DOSBOX or similar?

    and them use Doomsday engine.

    The only good engine for brutal is zDoom or GZDoom.

    TBH, I play only with keyboard, and haven't tested if brutal can be configured
    with no mouse and auto aim on.
    Other than that, brutal changes a lot of gameplay stuff. including weapons and that was not my intention, my intention was to preserve original gameplay

    Got it, thanks! That's what I intend to do ;)

    However I'll also play around a bit in the "original" mode just for nostalgias sake. In fact I'll probably try and dig up DEU and start creating my own wads again!

    We actually had a "project" back in elementary school with my friend. He was good at drawing so he made up level schematics and I realised them with DEU.

    The problem was he had designs for all the episodes while I was still working on the first levels... apparently he wasn't pleased that the production was so far behind design :nerd:

    But veering off topic now.

    Also, if you people want to go ahead and play mega wads,

    I recommned the offcial id Games wad (levels) site.

    I highly reccomned to play Odissey 2012 , 10th edition

    http://www.doomworld.com/idgames/

    Still you need Doom original, to play.

    I've had DoomsDay Engine set up on my WinXP box for over a year now. It's great. I thought everyone knew about this little gem.

    How is DoomsDay engine better than a good source port like GZDoom?

    Because it's a source port, like any other, but better.
    The difference is in the GUI, ease of use, supports more games
    than Doom , it has emmbeded taskbar , swithing games, and many other things.

    You should try it, or read the guide, specially first chapter,
    "Why Doomsday Engine".

    Have to redownload it some time, i remember using doomsday back then when it was released first, great memories kept Doomsday and Doom Legacy back then (first port for graphics and second one for split-screen)

    Looks interesting. I currently run the classic Doom from 1995 on DosBox & GZDoom...

    Before I try the Doomsday Engine, could someone please upload some screenshots of how it looks maxed out?

    Just wondering how it compares to the current GZDoom.

    Cheers gurus.
