Doom is fucking hard. I am playing on the default setting which I assume was "Hurt Me Please" since that was what was selected normally. I think it's because I'm not used to the controls of having to use the arrow keys and ctrl/space for fire/action.

This game is awesome though.

Why would he get a job when he mooches off everyone else?

Hmmmmmm, now that I say that, do I hear wedding bells in his and Berts future?

If you use a source port like GZDoom you can get modern WASD and mouse controls. Plus you can do Brutal Doom!

I'm just using The Ultimate Doom that I got from GoG.com.

You can use GZdoom with that. It's real easy, all you do is install it and copy and paste the main Doom WAD file into the GZdoom folder.

Also it's free.

It's already compiled? I didn't see a launcher when I downloaded it.

Download for Windows, extract the ZIP file and click on the GZdoom application to launch. No compiler necessary.

What does copying and pasting the Doom WAD file do?

Also, how come this version runs so smoothly FPS wise?

Meta replied with this 1 week ago, 53 minutes later, 6 hours after the original post[^] [v] #837,871

@previous (Catherine !TGirlYJKXM)
The Doom WAD file holds all the game data (textures, sounds, level maps, etc). This is copyrighted by id Software so GZDoom can't redistribute it, which is why you have to copy and paste it in there.

> Also, how come this version runs so smoothly FPS wise?
Because it's had about 24 years of improvement over the 1993 version. Also computers have advanced a lot more. Doom was originally targeted to run on an Intel 386 with 4MB of RAM. There's a lot of stuff you can do now with the game engine that wasn't feasible in 1993.

And GoG doesn't modify these games in that aspect, right? Because they want to sell the pure versions so they don't modify it in that way, they just modify it to run on modern platforms (hence: dosbox)?

Also, I think I am on the last level of episode one (hurt me please setting) and I just saw two Satans. These fuckers are hard as shit. How many shots do they have to take to go down?

That depends, either way, it's irrelevant now. I got passed it once I figured out that I could go on the red surface. I thought I was confined to the platform.

GoG doesn't. Personally I go more for the more advanced Doom experience with Brutal Doom, except when I play on my tablet (I use D Touch by Beloko on the Amazon app store (it used to be on Google Play but id Software complained because it showed a Doom screenshot) https://www.amazon.com/Beloko-Games-D-Touch-Port-Doom/dp/B00ZV118YK

When I play on my tablet or phone I do it in Chocolate Doom because the controls are easier.

(you don't need to buy Doom again, you can just copy the Doom WAD file onto your tablet for D Touch)

I want to play as close to the original as possible before I go into the realm of mods. Also, do some levels just not have gate keys? I think I am on level 5 of episode two and noticed that there aren't any. It was just easy for me to go the exit.

I hope I don't get into trouble for posting this screenshot now, but what the fuck? I just bunny hopped over this entire green vat of slime or whatever the fuck it is suppose to be without taking any damage. Is this suppose to be that way?

I just exited knowing that I will be playing this game again. Now I am on the level that has a lot of pillars. I activated the switch on the other side and yet nothing is happening. Is this suppose to be a boss battle? I see no demons or anything.

It's not the screenshot that was the problem, it was the fact they were using it to sell a Doom source port.

You can usually tell a boss battle when the level is quiet and empty, and there's a shit ton of ammo and health around.

Is this a key? The keys on this level look like skulls and I already obtained a blue and orange one. Yet this one I cannot pick up. Was this just a fool's one?

No that's just a spooky decoration. It's not meant to be a fake key. Skull keys are solid red, yellow, or blue.

I haven't played it yet. I played Doom 3 and I didn't care for it.

@838,286 (Catherine !TGirlYJKXM)
I'm not sure which source port you're playing but running quickly across a small pond of "nukage" (the technical term) won't cause much, if any, damage. If you use a source port that supports jumping you may not incur any damage running across that.
