The basic goal is to recreate the original Doom and Doom 2 in the idTech4 engine with all the engine eye candy id Software has provided us with so we can recreate the game for a classic Doom player to remember and enjoy the memories of the classics in a modernized way, but keeping the old Doom spirit well in the game. We hope that you enjoy playing Doom Reborn as much as we have enjoyed making it for you, Have Fun!

Pre-Beta Version 1.65 Standalone Build

Due to a oversight when making the installer the default address should be changed from

When picking somewhere else to install, Make sure you put a "\DoomReborn" in the address

Justin Marshall

Justin Marshall has his own project he's working on called IcedTech which can be found here,

He's ported over E1M1 into his IcedTech engine and tweaked the lighting while testing his new features

he may or may not port over more maps for us all to enjoy.

Justin Marshall's IcedTech Engine is a new idTech 4 engine with virtual texturing, recast navmesh, CaS, GLSL, Radiant.NET and more!







Level Editor Build

This build is to only be used for making new levels inside Doom Reborn

Use the "editor.bat" to launch directly into the editor

Level exits will not work in this release and

should not be used for playing the game as a whole

Doom Reborn Level Editor

Source Code Build

This build is to be used with Visual Studio

Doom Reborn Source Code

Doom Reborn Mod
Pre-Beta Version 1.65

- Setup
Using the installer simply just select drive location you want to install too
Example "C:\Program files\Doom Reborn"

Known Issues:
Weapons don't carry over after completeing a level
Stat screen music doesn't play
Music slider doesn't exist
Stat screen counters don't calculate correctly
(If you find other issues please report them)

Quicksave F5 Quickload F9

Using the old "DoomReborn.exe & Gamex86.dll" from the none saves patch,
Weapons will carry over between levels and the music slider will work and backpacks will work as expected, But quick saves won't work and health vials won't work above 100hp

- What's New:
I've added widescreen resolution support,
adjusted the lighting in every level,
Updated the apperence of the main menu,
added new easter eggs and corrected a couple bugs along with various tweaks and changes.
Updated a couple of textures

I've included my incomplete version of Map10 of Doom 2, Now that the project is standalone and open to everyone (Source Code included at github)
I really want to see the community get involved in someway like dafama2k7 did with his mod for the mod,
If you want to make levels for the project I'd suggest finishing off map10 to get a feel for the idtech4 editor and the doom reborn assets
if you are formiliar with the editor i'd love to see a remake of Romero games "Sigil" Doom 1 Episode 5 fan project by John Romero or other fan levels
over the years that you can find at
Once you have made a mod you can submit it at as well.

- Enabling Parallax Occlusion Mapping
I've enabled Parallax Occlusion Mapping by default
To disable it, open the command console by pressing left "ctrl" left "alt" and "`" at the same time and type
"image_usecompression 1" and then press enter.
Then type "vid_restart" and then press enter.
The screen will go black then come back grey for a few seconds while it reloads, don't worry that's normal.

After the screen reloads (takes longer if you make the change mid level) that's you all done, press escape or "`"
to close the command line console.

To enable Parallax Occlusion Mapping again follow this same process except use this command instead "image_usecompression 0"

is there a way to teleport to certain levels? I was doing a level in episode 2 of the doom 1 part and at the end of the level was over, it brought me to level 1 of doom 2.

Thing is, there is NO file called default.cfg anywhere in the DoomReborn directory or its subdirectory! What gives?

OK, I renamed DoomReborn.cfg to default.cfg and now the last few lines of the log file are

The optimisation leaves a lot to be desired. Is it possible to disable ragdolling, or re-add Doom 3's disintegrate-on-death feature as an optional setting? I've got a pretty decent rig with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 graphics card and 1.5TB free space give or take (which I think is pretty good for a secondhand PC) and performance still tanks if there's too much onscreen at once, which can seriously affect how a fight plays out. Take for example the military base, as soon as I got to those towers the frame rate dropped to about 5-10 and the response time became really sluggish, and one time the game broke entirely because me and two imps all fired shots at the same time while (I was) in motion.

GTX 670 is ancient mate

Gimme a break, I got this setup at a fraction of how much it would've cost me otherwise because my neighbour is a fricking saint.
