If you've been gaming for any reasonable amount of time
then you've probably heard of DOOM! It's the game that ushered in network
deathmatch play in a fluid, 3D environment. Many gamers have spent countless
hours in the world of DOOM, and it's still enjoyed by many people today.
Various version of DOOM exist, and it's been ported to many platforms
over the years. The Atari Jaguar received one of the earlier DOOM ports
and even contains networking support for two players (although the networking
isn't as solid as it could be). There are some differences from the PC
version of DOOM, such as the lack of music during gameplay, but overall
it's a very respectable port.
The release of the Jaguar DOOM Source Code was made possible by John
Carmack of id Software and Carl
Forhan of Songbird Productions.
Thanks also go out to Bill "Burger" Heineman. It is hoped that
the release of this source code will help stimulate further Jaguar development
for years to come, to the benefit of Jaguar fans worldwide.
The WAD file containing all the graphics, sounds and levels is not included
with the source code archive and cannot be distributed. Please view the
readme.txt and license.txt files before downloading the source code.
You can discuss the DOOM Source Code with other Jaguar enthusiasts in
