The command I have for loading Doom 95 is: give doom95 but it doesn't work. Is that command wrong, or is the whole Doom 95 thing a joke?

Well being that alot of "old" and "classic" games such as doom, don't work with windows xp. Perhaps it was a feature added in that they didn't realize would conflict with windows XP.

The original Doom 95 was written for a FAT32 system ( win 98/95 ). Doom 95 was started in MS-DOS. If you have a executable for doom 95 right click it then go to properties ---> compatibility ---> then select the option "run program in" try running it in a windows 98 compatibility mode that windows XP or 2000 offers. If its a console command, you may be entering it wrong ( eg. case sensitivity, spaces put in wrong place, no underscores etc. ) Good luck

: ) That's a very intelligent response. Altho, i think slightly misguided. He was referring to the "code" command for doom III. Which states that when you enter the command you could play doom95.

:) And since the game would be the one executing it it's not much you could do to "make it work" for windows XP.

It was probably a feature they were tinkering with until they realized it conflicted with XP. And most likely forgot to take out the command.

But, then again... who knows.
