Correct me if I'm wrong but you couldn't strafe nor use the mouse either?

You could do both. Kb/mouse was the standard for Doom.
You just can't look up and down vertically with the mouse with original DOOM games.

Hey, didn't old DOOM versions have triple monitor support too?

Awesome! Do I assume the original games' multiplayer will be compatible with these recent releases?

Do the old games, with their multiplayers, still work today? I still have my original games. :O

No. (That's an educated guess by the way )
Not even with (hack/mod)s? Darn. I'd love to replay them online!

Doom forever! John Romero is pretty cool too! I wished more companies and developers released their old stuff.

Is it worth trying to download and play the huge game on my very ancient Windows XP Pro SP3 machine, with 2.5 GB of RAM and ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB of VRAM), connected to an 22" 1080p monitor if I have time this weekend?

Wow. So good to see Elite Dangerous on there. My faith in mankind has been partly restored .
Maybe Linux and Mac OS X ports will bump it to #1.

I got this invitation too, but frak that time limitation. Doesn't ESO have free play with limitations too? If so, then I'd rather play that and take my time.

Try Chrome?

Don't think it has a windows 3.1 installer...


Ant needs a GoFundMe for a new laptop...
Ew, Chrome sucks. I was using Mozilla's SeaMonkey v2.33.1 web browser on my ancient Windows XP Pro SP3 desktop. I don't use lappies anymore. I still have my 15" PowerBook G4 1 Ghz though!

Is this worth trying on old systems like ATI Radeon 4870 with 512 MB of RAM, Windows XP Pro SP3, etc.? Videos didn't impress me. I still need to try Black Mesa, but they never finished it its Xen levels (I know they suck, but!!).

Better delayed than released early

Seconded. Take the time and get it right.

Yep, but don't take so long like 3D Realms' Duke Nukem Forever.

Good old Jeff God I still got his Merak VHS video, he was smoking big time back then while play with this Trip-a-Tron ...
Is that online?


A tiny bit of Google-fu turned up this: https://youtu.be/PJ2XD5yJ6To

Audio might have been redone from the original from what I read but gonna check out this vid now as I love minter's work.

Edit: wow! Can't believe I've never seen this before, it's like some pre-demoscene timewarp space trip. I wonder what other demoscene-like videos existed like this before the internet, as this is definitely the first i've seen.

Jeff minter and Scott Draves need to just get together and create the most intense visualizer that the world has ever seen. I would happily pay whatever price they'd ask.
That's neat. I like watching these.
