My father has some problems with the doom games. Previously they have worked fine on his computer. But now (he mighta installed something) when I run the doom games the music will start out fine. Then slowly the music will start making some high notes. then low notes. Loud constant notes. Then the soun gets worse and at the end the game crashes. It happens when I run the god ol dos version and when I run the ultimate doom collection (you know the pack with ultimate doom. final doom. doom2 in windows GUI). (btw problem happens on duke3d too)
Else does anyone know of a Doom2/doom1 easy to use gamestarter like jdoom n such, that even a braindead dude can use(like my father)?. Gotta be easy to start the game and easy to choose single .wad maps.
Just use sourceports. For Duke3D, go to: http://jonof.edgenetwork.org/ (VERY easy to use, just set up a few things before playing) and for Doom... Well, there are dozens for Doom, but I prefer Doomsday (jDoom): http://www.doomsdayhq.com/. If everything is set up correctly in advance, your father will only have to choose which game to play in the launcher (Ultimate Doom, Doom II or Final Doom) and he's in! Simple as that. Hope this helps.
Thanks I'll try it next time I'm there. If not I'll come back to haunt the forum again ;)
