Does any one know where i can get Doom 1?
Ultimate Doom contains the original 3 Doom levels.
Search in google for macintosh garden, it should be on the site.
I think their server has a little problem..
Anyway, wherever you download the doom series. it is legal to download it because it is considered abandonware... And when you do that, be sure to check Doomsday to run the game natively in OS X with options such as 3d objects and characters, and better textures...
Actually, the Doom series is still under copyright by id, and there is no legal basis for "abandonware." That was something made up in the BBS age, and it kind of caught on with people who didn't question it. Plus, if you follow Lacero's link, id is still selling Doom, so how can it be abandoned? I think you can actually get it on a CD now, instead of the 10 floppies it used to come on.
On amazon its like $70
Do what patmian212 said.
You can get Ultimate Doom for Mac from 2.89 USD (used) to 25.99 USD (new) on Amazon.
Wolfenstein 3D is 74.49 USD. I am speechless.
yea some Castlevania something of Sorrow GBA game costs £45 on Amazon! AND its 2nd hand. i emailed the guy but he was real hostile. very angry person.
thats $79 by the by.
You could also check out DooMLegacy
You can get the 'Collector's Edition' Doom, includes Doom, Doom 2 and Ultimate Doom, for $10 at Wall-Mart. (Which, BTW means it's NOT abandon-ware!) It's in a black multi-CD case with a large DOOM on the front. It's the PC version, but put the .pak files into DoomLegacy, and you're fragging away in OpenGL goodness....
Thanks for that
Legacy is great, deffinetly worth a look. But Doomsday is something else. It's far far far better and newer releases here as well as SoulStorms link to the official pages..
Thanks to patmian12 and soulstorm-- I grabbed doom2 and doomsday and had a great afternoon playing doom2-- I had the doom 2 file before and it ran at about a frame a second in Classic-- doomsday, on the other hand, is excellent. I realize that graphics have gotten better in the last 10 years, but the gameplay is still great.
Thank you so much, I had no idea this was out there.
6th grade nostalgia, here I come!
I can't ever imagine thinking at one point Doom 1 was the greatest game ever. Today, the screen is so small, the graphics so pixellated and the game play so stiff by today's standard. LOL. Good trip down memory lane.
don't forget about the packs you can install with Doomsday, like the texture packs, UI improvements, new models, weapons, lighting, etc.etc.. I'm still waiting of the next release 'Doomsday 1.9.0-beta3'. Hope it ain't too long, good stuff is doomsday
Any wolfenstein fans here?
ohh YEAH!!!!!! i still prefer the Atari Jaguar version of Wolf3d though, which is odd. But the mac one is so expandable with the maps u can use. Of course, you probably meant RTCW? Still a yes, love this game but not to great on the weapons compared to other games from the time, like MoH..
So, err yeah, i'm a fan yes! ....but back on topic.. heh
