Doom Method
Engine: GZDoom
Games supported: Ultimate Doom, Doom II, Final Doom, Heretic, Hexen, Hexen: Deathkings of Dark Citadel, Doom II Master Levels
Widescreen solution: Native
Detailed report

Common instructions:
Download GZDoom and extract it to an empty directory, and call it "GZDoom" or something like that to remind you that this contains GZDoom and all Doom engine games.

All but one of the below instructions involve copying one or two data files into the GZDoom directory. Follow as many as you like, and then run gzdoom.exe. If you only have the data file from one game in the gzdoom directory, it will automatically use that data file. If you have data files from multiple games, you'll get a menu asking which one you'd like to play. Very convenient!

The one exception is Master Levels which is a bit more involved, and has its own playing instructions.


Ultimate Doom instructions
Go to SteamAppscommonultimate doombase.
Copy DOOM.WAD into your GZDoom directory.


Doom II instructions
Go to SteamAppscommondoom 2base.
Copy DOOM2.WAD into your GZDoom directory.


Final Doom instructions
Go to SteamAppscommonfinal doombase.
Copy TNT.WAD and PLUTONIA.WAD into your GZDoom directory.


Heretic instructions
Go to SteamAppscommonheretic shadow of the serpent ridersbase.
Copy HERETIC.WAD into your GZDoom directory.


Hexen instructions
Go to SteamAppscommonhexenbase.
Copy HEXEN.WAD into your GZDoom directory.


Hexen: Deathkings of Dark Citadel instructions
You must have followed the Hexen instructions beforehand.
Go to SteamAppscommonhexen deathkings of the dark citadelbase.
Copy HEXDD.WAD into your GZDoom directory.


Doom II: Master Levels instructions
This one's a bit more involved. You must have followed the Doom II instructions beforehand.
Go to SteamAppscommonmaster levels of doommaster.
Copy the folder "wads" into your GZDoom directory. Then go to the GZDoom directory and create a file called "master.bat."

Now, edit the file, and copy and paste this into it:

Code:
@echo off
   echo DOOM II: The Master Levels
   echo 1:  attack.wad   *MAP01
   echo 2:  blacktwr.wad *MAP25
   echo 3:  bloodsea.wad *MAP07
   echo 4:  canyon.wad   *MAP01
   echo 5:  catwalk.wad  *MAP01
   echo 6:  combine.wad  *MAP01
   echo 7:  fistula.wad  *MAP01
   echo 8:  garrison.wad *MAP01
   echo 9:  geryon.wad   *MAP08
   echo 10: manor.wad    *MAP01
   echo 11: mephisto.wad *MAP07
   echo 12: minos.wad    *MAP05
   echo 13: nessus.wad   *MAP07
   echo 14: paradox.wad  *MAP01
   echo 15: subspace.wad *MAP01
   echo 16: subterra.wad *MAP01
   echo 17: teeth.wad    *MAP31 *MAP32
   echo 18: ttrap.wad    *MAP01
   echo 19: vesperas.wad *MAP09
   echo 20: virgil.wad   *MAP03
   set /p userinp=choose a number (1-20):
   goto %userinp%
   :1
   set wad%=attack.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :2
   set wad%=blacktwr.wad
   set warp%=25
   goto end
   :3
   set wad%=bloodsea.wad
   set warp%=7
   goto end
   :4
   set wad%=canyon.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :5
   set wad%=catwalk.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :6
   set wad%=combine.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :7
   set wad%=fistula.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :8
   set wad%=garrison.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :9
   set wad%=geryon.wad
   set warp%=8
   goto end
   :10
   set wad%=manor.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :11
   set wad%=mephisto.wad
   set warp%=7
   goto end
   :12
   set wad%=minos.wad
   set warp%=5
   goto end
   :13
   set wad%=nessus.wad
   set warp%=7
   goto end
   :14
   set wad%=paradox.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :15
   set wad%=subspace.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :16
   set wad%=subterra.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :17
   set wad%=teeth.wad
   set warp%=31
   goto end
   :18
   set wad%=ttrap.wad
   set warp%=1
   goto end
   :19
   set wad%=vesperas.wad
   set warp%=9
   goto end
   :20
   set wad%=virgil.wad
   set warp%=3
   goto end
   :end
   gzdoom.exe ./wads/%wad% -warp %warp%


To play Master Levels, run master.bat instead of gzdoom.exe. You'll get a menu that lets you pick which map to use.

Quake method
Engine: Dark Places
Games supported: Quake, mission packs
Widescreen solution: Native
Detailed report

Quake instructions:
Download Dark Places and extract it to an empty directory, and call it "Quake" or something that will remind you that it is Quake 1. Keep that directory open in a window.

Open another window and go to SteamAppscommonquake.

Copy the folder "Id1" to your Dark Places directory.

Run darkplaces.exe to play Quake.


Mission pack instructions:
You must have followed the Quake instructions beforehand. This assumes you have both expansion packs.
Go to SteamAppscommonquake. Copy the folders "hipnotic" and "rogue" into your Dark Places directory. Then go to the Dark Places directory and create a file called "quake.bat."

Now, edit the file, and copy and paste this into it:
Code:
@echo off
   echo Quake + expansions
   echo 1: Quake
   echo 2: Mission Pack 1: Scourge of Armagon
   echo 3: Mission Pack 2: Dissolution of Eternity
   set /p userinp=choose a number (1-3):
   goto %userinp%
   :1
   goto end
   :2
   set game%=hipnotic
   goto end
   :3
   set game%=rogue
   goto end
   :end
   darkplaces.exe -game %game%


Run quake.bat to get a menu that lets you pick which mission pack to play.

Hexen II Method
Engine: Hammer of Thyrion
Games supported: Hexen II
Widescreen solution: Native

Hexen II instructions:
Download Hammer of Thyrion. The package you probably want is hexen2-1.4.1-windows.zip. Extract it to your hard drive. Open it, and open the "data1" folder.

Open another window and go to SteamAppscommonhexen 2data1.
Copy both *.pak files into your HoT Hexen II's "data1" folder.

To play it, go back to the hexen2-1.4.1 directory and run glh2.exe to play Hexen II.

Be sure to go to the options menu and set the music to MIDI. Activision Value didn't see fit to include the CD-quality music with this game or Quake 1&2. But unlike the Quakes, Hexen II does support MIDI music.

Quake II method
Engine: aprq2, KMQuake2
Games supported: Quake II, mission packs
Widescreen solution: .ini
Detailed report

There are two engines that I have found that are tied for "best Quake II engine for widescreen." AFAIK, they are equal in terms of widescreen support. I personally prefer KMQuake2, but aprq2 has been more thoroughly tested for widescreen support. KMQuake2 may or may not have flaws I don't know about. Take your pick, but this guide assumes you use aprq2.

Quake II instructions:
Download aprq2 and extract it to an empty directory, and call it "Quake2" or something that will remind you that it is Quake 2. Keep that directory open in a window.

Open another window and go to SteamAppscommonquake 2.

Copy the folder "baseq2" to your aprq2 directory. You can safely overwrite the existing "baseq2" folder; you won't lose any files in it.

Run aq2.exe to play Quake.


Mission pack instructions:
You must have followed the Quake II instructions beforehand. This assumes you have both expansion packs.
Go to SteamAppscommonquake 2. Copy the folders "xatrix" and "rogue" into your aprq2 directory. Then go to the aprq2 directory and create a file called "quake2.bat."

Now, edit the file, and copy and paste this into it:
Code:
@echo off
   echo Quake II + expansions
   echo 1: Quake II
   echo 2: Mission Pack 1: The Reckoning
   echo 3: Mission Pack 2: Ground Zero
   set /p userinp=choose a number (1-3):
   goto %userinp%
   :1
   goto end
   :2
   set game%=xatrix
   goto end
   :3
   set game%=rogue
   goto end
   :end
   aq2.exe +set game %game%


If you are using KMQuake2, the last line should be this instead:
Code:
kmquake2.exe +set game %game%


Run quake2.bat to get a menu that lets you pick which mission pack to play.
