How to run Doom II in Windows 8
Run it in compatibility mode for Windows 95

Then you have to edit both the doom2.cfg and Doom2m.cfg files to change this:

fullscreen=false

Then look down a little further and change this:

waitonerror=false

Now find Dosbox.cfg and change waitonerror to false as well.


BOTH files have these settings and BOTH files must be changed AND be the same.

If those dont work do this too:

fulldouble=false

in both doom2.cfg and doom2m.cfg.


Now when the game starts, to use fullscreen just hit Alt+Enter.

This is only for Doom II. I have not yet messed around with any other flavors of Doom on W8.

Enjoy!

Browse to the folder and find Doom2.exe. Right click on it and open the properties. Go to the compatability tab and select Windows 95.

Also, W8 should have a 'troubleshoot compatability' option when right clicking, but it will set it to XP mode. You may have to run the troubleshooter before you can access the Compatability tab anyway.

It would probably run doing all of the above minus the compatability thing, but I think as its a DOS game from 1994, setting it to W 95 is a good idea. My logic in that is though the game may start, it may not run well or crash at some point when W8 doesnt agree with what its doing. Might as well set it up for the closest OS you can.

thought that microsoft was past making bad backwards compatibilty. Is there any other application that doesnt make the transition well?

You can skip most of this, actually. Go to (your steam install directory)\Steam\steamapps\common\Doom 2\DOOM2.EXE - right click -> compatibility tab -> Run in compatibility mode for... and choose either Windows 95 or 98.

Next, edit dosbox.conf -> set fulldouble=true (default is false), save it and run the game. No changes to the doom2 or doom2m conf files. Tested with Windows 8.1 Pro x64.

So you just reposted my fix and left a couple important things out. Good job :/

The reason it doesnt start on both of our W8 machines is because it encounters an error and hangs. You change it to ignore the error so it continues.

I also wouldnt recommend Windows 98 as your choice for compatibility mode as the game is from 1994. What works for you may not work for everyone, and thats already proven as it doesnt work that easily on our machines. Machines that were running on a very fresh install of W8.

What I posted is a guaranteed 100% fix regardless of your particular issue. Its all inclusive, which is obviously the best way to handle posting a fix for various hardware and software configurations.

This seems like it would work, but I cant open the CONF files with notepad, or anything for that matter. What do?

Thank you
And please, move it to "guides", so that we can add it to favorites.
