ABOUT Odamex - Setting the Standard in Multiplayer Doom

Play Classic Doom Over the Internet!

Odamex is a free, open source, cross-platform (Mac, Windows, Linux) modification of the Doom engine that allows players to connect together easily. The goal of Odamex is to add enhancements to Doom while still retaining that "classic Doom feel" we all know and love about the original game.

Odamex has a client/server architecture with a launcher that allows players to come and go freely into servers without having to restart a game. In addition to the original Doom's Cooperative and Deathmatch; Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag are also supported game modes. While Odamex is free software, an iwad is required to play it. These iwads are found with copies of Ultimate Doom (doom.wad), Doom II (doom2.wad), Final Doom (tnt.wad and plutonia.wad), Shareware Doom (doom1.wad), Chex Quest (chex.wad) or FreeDoom. Doom II is the most commonly modded game and most servers require it. Additionally, there is also support for detecting the various wads that make up The Master Levels for Doom II expansion pack.

Of course the Odamex community is very small, but growing. It is home to the World Doom League, North American Doom Association, and some of the most competitive Doomers in the world. Odamex was even the port of choice for use with the 20th anniversery Doom competition at Quakecon 2013! This Steam group posts news about new versions, shares details about community projects, and announces special events like Odamex Nitro. Feel free to join our Steam group as well as our IRC chat room @ irc:// to chat with other Odamex players live and find people to play with. If you are interested in developing patches for Odamex, please visit us @ irc:// and talk to us.

When does that go on?

Outside of WDL, there isn't much happening other than random games here and there.

So, is this like, dead?

Hi LE, the WDL is still going strong, but is in off-season at the moment. You can typically see the people in #dmstuff on QuakeNet playing deathmatch almost every night. As for Nitro, it is on hiatus for now but can be continued if there is enough interest.

I take it Odamex put a halt on events huh? Haven't seen any pop up on here in a long time. Shame.
