Freedoom is a project to create a complete Doom II-compatible IWAD file which is Free Software' The IWAD file is the file used by Doom which contains all the game data (graphics, sound effects, music, etc')' While the Doom source code is Free, you currently still need one of the proprietary IWAD files from id in order to play Doom' Freedoom aims to create a Free alternative' Combined with the GPL-licensed Doom source code this will result in a complete Free Doom-based game' The Freedoom project has already succeeded in creating a complete set of replacement textures for the original Doom games, as well as a large amount of extra material (sound effects, graphics, sprites, etc)' All of the Freedoom material can be freely redistributed, modified and reused without restriction provided credit is given to the project'
Really awesome, an Iwad for those that can't be able to buy or get the original doom games. This is well made, but there are some things that need checking. Freedoom Guy's sound when he dies sounds like the Zombie Guys when they die. The Chaingunner still has Freedoom Guy's sprite (unless the newer version changed it), Freedoom Guy does a weird sound when touching walls, and his sprite seems weird. When the final boss dies it makes a human guy's scream XD. It annoys me that you need both phase 1 and phase 2 to be able to play Freedoom, and the reason for that is on the Zandronum port there isn't an option to switch phases. Overall, it's a really well made iwad/mod. :) I definitely recommend it.
Pretty cool, It's Doom, just free !!
