Doom Multiplayer

#1 Posted by PolyesterKyle (137 posts) -

Anyone here ever play Doom online anymore? I've been playing on and off for the past few years, unfortunately whenever I play, it's usually with strangers. We play for an hour or so and then we go our separate ways into the night, our hearts heavy with regret. So I was thinking, how many of the Bombers play Doom, or would want to play Doom online with fellow Bombers. That way we could get a little community going or something, I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud here. If it's a dumb idea just tell me, but I bet there are at least a couple people who think it could be cool.

A little info, I play on Skulltag using the Doomseeker server list, I'm not that familiar with getting servers up and running but I bet I could figure it out. Let me know if there is a better way or whatever. Anyway, I hope someone thinks this is an alright idea.

Believe it or not, the Doom community is still quite active and many new mapping/modding related projects are currently in progress! If you're looking for some people to play Doom with, why not try heading over to Doomworld, ZDoom or the Skulltag forums? You'll probably find most of your online opponents on the Skulltag forums. Also, might I recommend trying out Odamex as a multiplayer source port as well? Every Saturday, the Odamex community has Odamex Nitro where they choose a wad to play with the community. It's generally pretty fun!

You can also meet other doomers on IRC if you're willing to use that. On the OFTC network you can find #zdoom and #odamex, and on the Skulltag network you can find #skulltag.

@Pavera: Do you play? I wouldn't mind getting in on some of that stuff that you mentioned. Though a lot of it was over my head. I know what wads are though, and it makes me giggle every time I say it.

@PolyesterKyle: I play occasionally, but I mainly just hang out with a smaller group of community members on IRC and make maps. You can also check out the ZDaemon community. They seem to always be ready to play something, and the ZDaemon source port keeps track of stats and such, so it might appeal to more modern sensibilities.
