The games/chocolate-doom port

chocolate-doom-3.0.1 – portable release of Doom, Heretic, Hexen, and Strife (cvsweb github)

Description

Chocolate Doom is an SDL-based port of the classic DOOM.EXE experience from
the days of DOS.  The project aims to provide an experience identical to that
of the original games on original hardware.  A game configuration program is 
included, and emulates the classic DOS-style SETUP.EXE of the originals.

The project also maintains versions of the engine for Heretic, Hexen, and
Strife.  All original game PWADs and demos should work flawlessly.

Game Data
=========

To play the game you will need an original Doom, Ultimate Doom, Doom II,
Final Doom, Heretic, Hexen, or Strife IWAD.  The games data files will
be named as follows:

  o DOOM1.WAD .................. Doom Shareware
  o DOOM.WAD ................... Doom Registered or Ultimate Doom
  o DOOM2.WAD .................. Doom II: Hell on Earth
  o PLUTONIA.WAD ............... Final Doom: The Plutonia Experiment
  o TNT.WAD .................... Final Doom: TNT Evilution
  o HERETIC1.WAD ............... Heretic Shareware
  o HERETIC.WAD ................ Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders
  o HEXEN.WAD .................. Hexen: Beyond Heretic
  o STRIFE0.WAD ................ Strife Shareware
  o STRIFE1.WAD + VOICES.WAD ... Strife: Quest for the Sigil

Place one or more of the above-listed files in ${PREFIX}/share/doom/
to play.

NOTE: Chocolate-doom is case-insensitive when loading files, just as the
original for DOS was.  This means you do not have to reference the files
in CAPS to load via `-iwad' or `-file' parameters.


Launching a Game
================

Depending on which game you want to play, launch with the executable
matching the game data installed.  There are four options:

  o chocolate-doom
  o chocolate-heretic
  o chocolate-hexen
  o chocolate-strife

Run `chocolate--setup' to generate a configuration file to your
liking.

If multiple IWADs are installed, you may specify the one you want to
play via the `-iwad' command-line parameter:

  $ chocolate-doom -iwad doom.wad
  $ chocolate-heretic -iwad heretic1.wad

Multiplayer Games
=================

See the chocolate-(6) manpages for additional information.  If a
dedicated server is desired, see the chocolate-server(6) manpage.

Shareware Data
==============

The Doom Shareware IWAD is available in the `doomdata' package.  Other
shareware is available from the Doomworld idgames archive website:
