Description

FISTFUL is a total conversion which goes on to change what we know of Doom by stepping away from those high tech labs and fiery pits of hell, instead taking players on a journey to the old west across two maps, complete with new graphics and audio. A complete Western conversion, featuring a full western town high-street, enemy replacements and weapon replacements. Every effort has been made to make this the ultimate Western Wad - this is the UK's answer to Boothill! Let's hear from a happy customer...

This comment is probably a bit late but I still think it'll be relevant - looking through the WAD file with an editor reveals some quite funny things.
First of all - the sound DSBFG (The BFG9000's firing sound) has been replaced with a 2 second backwards speech. Having un-reversed the audio clip reveals an English accented voice (possibly Soultec or A-ware?) Saying "Okay I'm sh*t so I'm gonna have to chea-*cuts off*" - obviously due to the BFG being unavailable without cheating.
Another interesting thing I found is the Imp and the Revenant's action sounds - these sounds are the Saloon's ambience sounds and the Church's bell sounds respectively. This also explains why there's always one monster you can't find - they're hidden in the map just to make their action sounds!

In my opinion, this is one of the best wads ever made - it's a shame it's only short and nobody followed up with expanding the idea, such a shame.

What source port is compatible with "A fistful of DOOM" ?

Pretty much all of them.
A Fistful of Doom was made back in 1997 (Development starting back in late 1996, as far as I know), which was before really any major source ports existed. So, for all I know, you can play this in vanilla Doom.

It's a short mod but I really enjoyed it love the Client Eastwood movies gun and sound effects from The man with no name trilogy I wish to see more mods like this for games as I am a big fan of those movies.

In the 90s, i got a CD-Rom named "Doom 2 Magic" and there was a Western-themed-Mod, but not as a TC only with sounds. Doom 2 was after modding the same game but with one-liners and a train in the background. It was funny to play.

Yet, it's A Good Mods I really Enjoyed it. But the Levels is too short and You should expanded the maps into maybe Map12.
