It says Doom 2 is Multiplayer Compatible through steam. But if so, how do you play?

That sounds like a lie to me, the Steam version doesn't come with multiplayer. You have do download a third-party program like ZDaemon, Zandronum, etc.

If you look at the game modes for the game, it says, Single Player, Multi-Player.

yeah, but you won't be able to use the built-in multiplayer because it's based on dial-up connections from the 90s. It takes some modding to get working.

Or use YANG.(Look it up)

This version does have multiplayer.

Dosbox has a included IPX connexion (port 213 UDP/TCP) and using IPXSetup.exe (after creating the IPX socket).

Of course, you have to find people having DooM 2 DOS and Dosbox, and organizing parties in order to play MP.

At least, that's what we did for the latest DooM 2 cooperative records we got with JCD.

If you want simplicity, use one of these modern ports :

Zdaemon : Most populated port, and we are hosting parties (ie BaseQ). Plus, every night has a event (ours are the FCT , the Frenchies' Chaotic Tuesdays, which is quite a success). Tries to keep the original DooM aspect while adding competitive stuffs.

Zandronum : (Successor to Skulltag) The most "New School" port. Has ZDooM 2.X.X updates, lots of NS mods. Unfortunately, that port suffers from the Quake 3 Arena syndrome, and lost the original Doom's feeling. Plus, has a horrible netcode.

Odamex : The true contestant of Zdaemon. Is completely open-source (code completely clean), with lots of netcode optimisations. But empty as hell (except for the IDL).

Now, make your choice.

Odamex! Odamex! I love Odamex, but I don't play because hardly anyone plays.

Zandronum is the most populated port. Not ZDaemon. Also I agree Odamex is the most fun because is feels like you're actually playing Doom :]
