DOOM II: Hell on Earth

Two questions
1.I am completely unaware of the engines Doom fans use for BrutalDoom and how to use them , but a friend of mine who plays it said to me he is absolutely enjoying it . So I want your opinion and instructions on how to play BrutalDoom.

2. Can i do the same with master levels on steam ?

1: My advice would be GZdoom engine for single player experience (best graphics, runs efficiently) or zandronum for multiplayer. Zandronum has built in multiplayer, which is nice, and while it has built in opengl graphics, they aren't onpar with gzdoom entirely. You can find both of these with google, But either one will require tweaking of settings before you play for max enjoyment (also, if using zandronum change your name from player BEFORE joining a server.. I'm an admin on a few servers, and I hate people with the default "player" name.)

To get it running, download gzdoom / zandronum, it should automatically detect any doom games downloaded by steam (1/2/final) And then put anything you wish to run alongside (brutal doom, alien vendetta, for instance) in the zandronum / gzdoom folder. Then, ctrl click any mods you wish to use in order of the way you wish to load them (Doesn't always matter, but the first pick is top priority, then second, third, so on) Then click / drag the group onto the EXE for the source port. Once done, game should load just fine.

2: yes you can, but its a bit annoying (and honestly master levels are over-rated compared to the plethora of downloadable map packs). You must go into the steam folder for master levels, and individually open the maps with the wad files for each map. So its tedious (one map at a time) but doable. But regardless I advise checking out free map packs. A few I can advise are:

Alien vendetta, Doom2 reloaded, argmagedoom (or ANYTHING by sergentmark4) Beyond hell and earth (currently beta, but still amazing) brutalized doom levels (ones for doom 1 / 2, very good maps) and countless others.
