These are located in the Steam game directory. Easiest way to find this is to go to your game Library and right click the game (Ultimate Doom for example) and choose Properties
. From here click on Local Files
, then Browse Local Files
The WAD file will be in the folder called Base
, for Ultimate Doom this is called DOOM.WAD
, for Doom 2 DOOM2.WAD
A Modern Doom Port
There are many to choose from, for a full list see the Doom Wikia
. I will only mention the popular ones here.Chocolate Doom
: This port tries to emulate Doom as close to how it was originally played as possible. It is low-res and 'ugly', just like back in the DOS days.GZDoom
: This is a more modern OpenGL port. Very popular for mods, if you want to play Brutal Doom this is a good choice.Zandronum
: Formerly known as SkullTag (which sounds way cooler), this also supports Brutal Doom and some other mods. It is mainly a Multiplayer focused port however.Odamex
: I don't know much about Odamex, my impression is that it sits somewhere in between Chocolate Doom and Zandronum but I could be wrong. It appears to be Multiplayer focused and supports widescreen etc. but attempts to keep a classic Doom feel at the same time.
A Launcher Utility
Again there are many, for this guide I will use ZDL
, specifically Q's New Version.
