Doomsday Engine - The ultimate modern Doom experience
Play Doom / Doom II / HacX / Heretic / Hexen / Check Quest games with a modern touch. Doomsday engine enhances video, audio, graphical user interface and many many other things that make your game experience much better without loosing the classy gampeplay and touch.
Sycraft Remixes 4[files.dengine.net]. DOOM, DOOMII and Final DOOM music remixed by Sycraft.
The first one it's just to make monsters look a bit better and in 3D. The second one it's a nice remix of the music. This one is really really a must and you'll find out once you tune up sound options in the engine, such as 3D,EAX and reverb.
Installing Doomsday Engine
The installer is really straight forward.
Accept terms and then use an installation dir of your preference.
Choose the componets. Just leave it at default, will install all the components for all supported games.
Next two screens are for your Program Folder and desktop shortcut. After that , the engine will install. At the end, let the Run program ticked.
It will let you open a wizard that will let you configure the basic parameters. Go to tools - Setup wizard
Select game profiles that you want to create. I am using only Ultimate Doom. The process show repeats for as many games as you want a profile created.
Since you have to own the game , it will ask you for the data file path. In my case : C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Ultimate Doom\base\DOOM.WAD
Next 2 screens, are not that important. Just leave them as they are or untick exit after game, on the second one. Done, know you have the engine installed and a game profile created.
Enhancing Doom. Part 1 - Engine settings
Before doing anything, let me explain something :
Dommsday Engine have 2 types of settings. Shared settings and specific game profile settings.
The perfect scenario is where you set shared settings, that are more or less global to all your games / games profiles, and then override them if you need to do so, on the specific game profile.
For the pourpose of this guide, I will be setting Shared Settings and override one of the Ultimate Doom Profile.
First thing we'll do is to set - up our Add-ons. Remember, the enhanced models and de music remix.
After you downloaded them, the easiest way to have everything under control and tidy, is to copy the files to the addons folder on the engine, and add that folder to my "addons foldes".
Let's see how.
First, copy both jdrp-packaged-20070404.zip and jdmu-all-remix-Sycraft-v4.pk3 to the path C:\Program Files (x86)\Doomsday\snowberry\addons.
If you installed Doomsday Engine in some other path, it's on snowberry\addons whre you have to copy them.
Next, we will add snowberry\addons as a shared setting path for addons, so we will have access to the installed addons from all game's profiles.
Select Shared settings on the left, and Settings tab on the right.
Click the + buton , browse you Doomsday Engine installation and select snowberry\addons .
In my case, the path C:\Program Files (x86)\Doomsday\snowberry\addons.
Now, go to the Addons tab, and click Refresh.Addmons will show there.
Next , we activate both addons for the Ultimate Doom game profile. Select the game profile on the left, and Addons tab on the right. Next, click on the left of both addons, to activate them.
Enhancing Doom. Part 2 - ingame settings
First time to fire the game, do the taskbar tutorial.
Will teach you to use it, it's an must do.
After that , hit Esc key, go options and SHOW TASKBAR, or use the shortcut key Shift-Esc
First, we'll take care of render options.
Make sure everything is on.
Next, we go to audio options. This are the settings I use.
Finally, we check on the video options.
I use full screen, on the pic is disabled for taking the screenshots for the guide.
I get some graphical glitches if I turn off vsync, your milleage may vary.
I wrote this guide so people can play the original game, without much change to it.
You can play around wit both engine settings and in game settings, to achive a more personal taste, but in my optinon this is the minimum setting to enjoy the game with a modern touch, and still having the blast of it's classic and classy gameplay.
Multiplayer is a work in progress, they still have work to do , but is still playable. They have 2 servers up that you can use.
