Walmart has a package that contains Doom 1, Doom2, and Final Doom for $10.

will the doom3 collectors edition run on winxp? i know sometimes older games have problems running correctly on xp (see system shock 2).

Sound in Doom and all Doom engine games is screwed on my Soundstorm. Maybe something isnt configured properly, but the games skip like crazy and the sound crackles constantly. When I disable sound, they all run fine.

I have XP and play Doom often, it runs great and looks better too with the Doomsday engine (http://www.doomsdayhq.com/)

I haven't played any of the "Doom" games in many, many years, but OMG!.....looking at all those doomsday screenies..brought back some great memories :D and somehow, got me even more excited for D3.......
imo...D3 is going to usher in a new era, like Doom did. Even though we know what to expect more than the blind-side Doom gave, I don't think Doom3's impact is going any less, buckel up, boys & girls gaming is about to get a big huge kick in the ass!!!

Good Day,

I have a Dell Latitude D600 and am having a problem launching DOOM2 under Windows XP SP-2. I am running the game in compatibility mode (WIN95) but with no success. Here is my error output:
