:moved: from Gaming Forums Feedback & Questions to Doom 1 and Doom 2 General Discussion. After looking through the various Doom sub-forums this one seems to be the only one it really fits in since its not Doom 3 your referring to. That said if another mod knows of a better place by all means move it.

In response to your question I honestly don't know how to do what your looking to do. Hopefully you'll be able to get the help your looking for here in the Doom forum.

Same here keyboard and mouse would be better than joystick in fighting games such as DOOM3

He's not asking about Doom 3, he's asking about the original Doom. And keyboard + mouse actually sucks for the original Doom, since the mouse moves you forward and backwards just like the arrow keys. I've tried, it just makes it much easier to fall into pits.

It's a completely different game. Sure, Doom 3 is fancy and realistic to a degree, but the original Doom is vintage. Classic game. Saying one should "upgrade" to Doom 3 is like telling someone to get rid of the original Legend of Zelda in favor of Phantom Hourglass. :uhm:

The orginal doom95.exe from ID has jystick support. It is in the advanced tab. Of the source ports. I know that zDoom and Doom Legacy have joystick support. You can find a port at Doomworld -- The definitive source for Doom news, information and development. Not all of them on there so you will have look and see.
