Hey, I was wondering if anybody else was having this problem. I have Windows XP/Vista and when I load the game, it stops saying that the file wasn't found. Does anybody know where I can find that file? This is really frustrating because it use to work on my old computer back home, but now I am in college.

Thanks for the help. Luckily I just started spring break and found the missing file on my old computer. If that doesn't work, I'll use the link.

BTW, I don't need fancy mods to enjoy Doom. Call me old-fashioned, but I found joy in killing pixelated demons. I could "tut" you for not playing the game without so-called fancy graphics. Besides, I just don't see the point.

Quite a few source ports play the game with the exact same graphics, just higher screen resolution. I use zDoom and the only thing it changes for me is the ability to use a mouse and a nice resolution, not different graphics. You can also use Chocolate Doom which plays Doom to almost exactly how the DOS exes play Doom. But if you wanna stick to Doom95, go right ahead. But there are supported options for current operating systems that play Doom exactly the same (or much better) as Doom95.

Here's an example of what the game looks through zDoom:

I've played through Doom with Doom95 as well and the only real difference in looks is higher screen resolution and a few added effects like bullet holes and blood on walls.
