So...none of the old Doom games run on windows 8 without zdoom installed..
But that's not the official original game? I was about to get them and if I ran into a problem I would download zdoom. But, is it true that the file isn't really the real game? So buying them makes it pointless...I just have to buy them for the file to use their code? That sounds like a waste of money.

You can run the dosbox version in win8, it is balls though. You need the .wad files to legally play the games with any source port like zdoom.

Buying games in general is a waste of money, I fail to see oyur point....

It completely sucks since I thought it was the XP version ported to WIin 7/8 but instead got the dosbox version that won't run at all.

Again, use a SOURCE PORT. Its one of the easiest things you can do, and it makes it run much better

Why is it a bummer? Whats wrong with using a source port?

There is a very good selection of Doom Source Ports for all platforms. This includes Windows 8.

For best compatability with modern systems, I would recommend one that renders through OpenGL or an abastraction library (such as SDL).

The stock Doom levels will all run on most modern computers in power save mode, but you might want a little faster than that, if you have an 120p monitor or ultra-high-res setup. You will also need the faster modes if you want to use community developed levels, which can be very processor intensive.

If you want the real classic vanilla experience, you can download DOSBox and the old DOS binaries. Obviously the classic dos binaries can be downloaded from id Software, and DOSBox can be gotten at either the DOSBox project website, or any of the major download sites for Freeware and/or Open Source Software.

Also, if you want to play on your Andriod phone, there are several source ports, or you can just fetch aDOSBox. (I recommend paying for the full version, as the developer behind the port is a good guy and works real hard to keep the port up to date.)
