Patching Your Copy of DOOM and DOOM 2
« on: January 22, 2019, 11:39:48 »
Note: If you have the original Steam releases of the Doom games (not the bfg edition) you are up-to-date and do not need to bother reading this.

As you may or may not be aware, several versions of Doom were released between 1993 and 1995 due to bugs being found, and features being added. You can find all of the history for the releases here.The latest version of all of the iwads are final version "1.9"

IWADVerifier
I made a release of my own IWADVerifier, written in pure Golang, and it is hosted on GitHUB. So you can use it for Windows, Linux and MacOSX without trouble. And it supports several new IWADs, even Freedoom !

The reason I did this is because Russell's version of IWADVerifier is nowhere to be found (unless you go to Archive.org)... Besides, we have gotten new IWADs, so we had to update the list.

IWADPatcher 1.2
Phenex2 also made a better patcher for Doom/Doom2, in order to support Doom XBLA/BFG Edition. His commandline tool is extremely good, and supports other games than DooM.

That's all for now.
