So, getting Doom 2 to work on Windows 8 is not a long, nor difficult task. I'd like to point out that I did actually get my help from the internet, but I did have to improvise a bit.
First, go to OS (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > Doom 2 > base
Right-click DOOM2 and go to 'Properties' then set compatability mode to Windows 95.
Then, go to doom2.conf and open it with Notepad.
Change 'fullscreen=true' to 'fullscreen=false' and 'waitonerror=true' to 'waitonerror=false'.
After that, go to doom2m.conf and do the same thing.
Then, open dosbox.conf and scroll down to where it says 'waitonerror=true' and change it to 'waitonerror=false'
Make sure you save these changes and close the files.
Go to your Steam Library and go to Doom 2: Hell on Earth and click 'Play'
If it still doesn't work, like it did for me, go to doom2.conf and change 'fulldouble=true' to 'fulldouble=false'
Do the same thing for doom2.conf.
After this, it should all work.
Hope this helped you! :)

Simple fix:

Go to the base folder, open up doom2m.conf, find the line "cycles" under the [cpu] section and set it to "max", find the line "output" under the [sdl] section and change it to "opengl"

if you are uncomfortable editing files the other thing to do is look on the doom wiki for scource ports. I have doomsday scource port which makes the game look very nice and polished. if you want something closer to the game in its orginal state try Chocolate Doom. I bought these games this morning and had to tweak them to get them working on windows 8.1 the scource ports are awesome check them out.

Get a surce port to play online like Zandronum.

If you want it to play more like when it came out try Chocolate Doom.

Awsome ! That worked perfectly. Is there a way to enable Steam Overlay in these games ? :o
Tarvis 20. mai @ 8:43am 
Yeah, but it requires hex editing if you want to play the DOSBOX version instead of a sourceport. If all you want to do is play a sourceport, then get Notepad++, go to your Steam install folder, then its appcache folder, and open appinfo.vdf. Ctrl-F for "doom2 + mouse.bat" (without quotes) and replace it with the .exe name of your choice. I prefer to use ZDL.exe, the ZDL launcher, because you can launch any source port from it and still get overlay. Save it and restart Steam for it to take effect.
