DOS - 1994
Also available on: Mac
Description of DOOM II
The second opus Doom is really good if you haven't played Doom 1.6. Animations are good, tons of action, hallucinating ambiance and great multiplayer.
But it's very similar to Doom 1 and looks like a mission pack: same 3D engine, same textures, almost same sound and music, only one new gun, six new monsters. The 30 levels are bigger and more complex than Doom 1, without much originality. The last two level are the exact copy of the last levels of Spear of Destiny!
That said, Doom 2 is a classic, you can spend hours on it because it's so addictive!
DOOM II has an addon available: Master Levels for DOOM II, don't miss it!

For those having trouble with the music and sound, go to your Doom II folder and run setup.exe then select Sound Blaster (just Sound Blaster not Sound Blaster AWE32) as both your Music Sound Card and Sound FX Card.
Use the default numbers (just keep pressing the Enter key) and then select "Save parameters and launch Doom II".

Game works great for me, EXCEPT for the sound+music. Anyone else have this problem or have any suggestions?

Fui um jogador inveterado do Doom 1 e 2. Mais infelizmente na minha época eram em disquetes e eles acabam. Fico contente com esta forma de poder baixar o game. Obrigado

if you want to mod games then just do a google
search,i am sure something will come up, not sure if
you can actually create an enemy npc by scratch but I do
know doom/doom2 is one of the most moddable games out
there and there is a huge community out there if you go looking.

forget dosbox...forget dfend.....forget any type of silly Dos emulation
and go to zandronum.com and download that program.
now copy your doom WADS into that folder, = PROBLEM SOLVED, no
more hassles trying to play doom, doom2 or any of the thousands of mods.

way back in the day we had a friend who owned one of the early PENTIUM computers and most of us had 386 or 486 pc and some of us NO pc at all.
so all the guys would go to his place after school and take turns playing
DOOM2, to be honest I had no interest in this game at first, I just went to
his place to admire his sister's LOVELY backside, man she had a nice butt,
she had nice legs too..she would make some type of juice for us using fruits.
her bum would haunt my dreams many years after.
hey if you can't get this game to work with dosbock then
just download ZANDRONUM and place ur doom.wad/doom2.wad
in the folder and you can play in windows with no problem.
I hope this was helpful....peaceOUT~

anyone know how I can play custom WADs? tried zdoom and gzdoom, no luck. can't get doom 95 to launch at all due to errors, so that's no help. any ideas?
doomer 2016-01-23 0 point DOS version
Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong? I can't get the game to run in DFend. I added the deice file and named the profile DOOM2, ran it and did the "c" and "y" thing, which created the DOOM2LZH file, which I then added and ran in DFend. Now how do I play the game? When I click on the DOOM2 profile, it just takes me back to the "c" and "y" thing and the game never loads. How do I get the game to run from here?
Doddo 2016-01-10 0 point DOS version
Well, guys, this is a game you don't want to run on Windows 3.1 cause it freezes almost immediatly after the title screen.
Dos Box Fan 2016-01-01 1 point
Ok, if you want to run in DOSBox, there are several steps you have to make.
1. After downloading, run the "deice" file and press "c" then "enter", then "y". That creates a new folder in your directory (It was "Doom2" for me) with a DOOM2LZH file. (I copy and pasted it back into the main directory)
2. Run the DOOM2LZH file is DOSBox and it will install the rest of the files.
3. You can run the game, but I had no sound. I ran the "SETUP" file in DOSBox and set:
a)"Select Music Card = General Midi = 330" Enter
b)"Select Sound FX Card = PC Speaker" Enter
4. Run DOOM2 in DOSBox and you should have sound. Enjoy!

TheUltimateDoomer666 2015-08-12 1 point DOS version
In response to The_Kefka, DOOM II is NOT abandonware. The version on Steam is _the original DOS version running in DOSBox_. The version included with DOOM 3 BFG edition however is slightly different (e.g. some graphics censorship). Even though the source code is released, the actual game data itself (IWADs) are not freeware.
Also this part of the description isn't really accurate: "The last two level are the exact copy of the last levels of Spear of Destiny!" - The "last two" levels of DOOM II (maps 31 and 32) are secret levels, and they are based on the first level of Wolfenstein 3D, and the secret level of Wolfenstein 3D episode 1, respectively.
The_Kefka 2015-04-19 6 points DOS version
Everyone, this is not piracy. THIS IS THE ORIGINAL DOS VERSION. The original version is abandonware. There are differences from this to the Steam Version.
A. It uses a modern source port in Steam.
B. There are some level and graphics changes in the Steam version.
So, there proves your point.

I played this with GZdoom, and my favorite wad, Invasion.uac.wad, still playing... help me...
nussi 2015-02-21 -3 points DOS version
Orangestar, The engine is open-sourced, the WAD files are still sold; so this is piracy or am I wrong?
Orangestar 2015-02-14 -4 points DOS version
This game actually isn't abandonware; ID is still selling it on Steam.
anonymous 2015-01-31 -4 points DOS version
Or run it in Chocolate Doom or another source port (look it up) :)

Hey people, just stopped by to drop in some advice regarding installing and playing the game
I didn't download the game from this site but if the copy is perfect then you just need to follow a very simple step
1. Get D-Fend (Google it)
2. Install it
3. Get Doom II (I got it from here, http://www.emuparadise.me/Abandonware_Games/Doom_II_Hell_On_Earth_(1994)(Atari_Inc)/93135)
4. Now just drop the package into D-Fend
5. Keep accepting the default conditions and you're good to go (Remember, DO NOT CHANGE ANY SETTINGS JUST ACCEPT THE DEFAULTS WHILE INSTALLING THE GAME)
For those having problems with sound should try installing everything with the DEFAULT and that's it
For those having problems with fullscreen, either follow one of these methods
1. Just select options by right clicking the game while in D-Fend
2. Select graphics under the 'Hardware' tab
3. Now change the 'Renderer' from 'surface' or something like that to 'overlay'
1. Right click the game while in D-Fend
2. Then -- 'View DOSBox config file'
3. Look for output then change to this -- 'output=overlay'
If you still have problems then head to the DOSBox forums :)
Sivart 2014-03-20 0 point DOS version

MetalHead 2014-03-07 0 point DOS version
Don't forget that if you don't have a very old PC, you will have to use an emulator to run. DOSBox.com is very simple. I am sorry if you have to actually read the actual documentations.
If you do have a very old PC and it actually runs, congradulations!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, id software released a sequel to one of the greatest games of all time. Doom 2 is even better than the original: more enemies, more variety of environments, bigger levels and larger areas, and--to top it all off--Doom 2 adds a badass Super Shotgun to your arsenal of already awesome weapons.

Yes, this game isn't abandonware per se, but the version still being sold today is the version that has always been sold: the full retail version. What you get here is something you could always have gotten for free anyway. It's the shareware demo. All that's in it is the first episode.
