I'll try it out on my Skunkboard if you let me know where to find the binary file.

I am aware of this but never bothered trying it out. I know one of the Reboot guys did it.

I know one thing, if didn't have work 10 hrs to 11 hrs a day, I would jump on making my own levels right now my doom level making is just too basic.

That looks very good indeed. Where it a commercial release it would fly off the shelves.

technically it shouldnt even be available since it has levels from doom 2 which never had a shareware version and they released content from a game that is still sold on xbox 360, android store, ect... so its pirated stuff. But then again it doesnt suprise me that retread does this.. Its what they've always done..

Zenimax media does go after users for things like this still. I believe they still actively persue users posting doom original wad files online which contain the levels and all assets.

Other than that, it is what it is. Its just a hack, not even a great one at that.

To each their own though. It is something newer than the original doom for jaguar.

I bought doom 2 when it came out and ive played it tooo many times. Thats really the reason i have no desire to play it, even if it is on the jaguar. However im not putting anyone down for liking it. If you get enjoyment out of it, great!

Its still missing enemies obviously and the double barrel though  :- that was my reason for saying it wasnt that good. Its not really doom 2...
