new patches to update DOOM
and DOOM II
that gives Steam users the re-releases, adds widescreen support, adds a
crosshair (which was considered a major cheat back in the day), and more. Here's
- PC: Added Steam Support
Anyone who already owns either The Ultimate DOOM or DOOM II: Hell On Earth
on Steam will automatically receive the new re-releases in their libraries.
The original DOS versions are still available as a separate launch option
from within Steam, and the original DOS IWAD files are in their original
location on disk. Please note: if you have modified the files in the Steam
install folder directly, some files may be overwritten. You should not
modify files in the Steam folder directly, as this may cause issues. Anyone
who purchases Steam copies of DOOM or DOOM II: Hell On Earth in the future;
it will default to the re-releases but can access the original DOS versions
as a separate launch option from within Steam.
- Added widescreen rendering support
For the first time in an official port, the original DOOM renderer has been
modified to natively render 16:9 without any letterboxing. The FOV has been
increased to reveal more image on the side instead of chopping off the top
and bottom. All new 16:9 versions of the titlescreen, intermission, and
ending screens have been added. Many of our Add-Ons have also had widescreen
support added, so download the latest version from the Add-Ons listing to
check it out!
- DeHackEd support
The engine now can load DeHackEd patches, a popular tool for the original
release that modified the game in order to support more advanced behavior.
Add-Ons can now use new weapons, change enemy behavior, and more!
