You bloody ripper, now where in the readme's does it say that?

I think I will drop it back, might loose a few things like Warcraft for 
one but I've been looking for a reason to try something other than a 
classic on 7.1 (bit of overkill but usable).

Well you've talked me into swapping the mobo over for the 800, its never 
been tested so I guess i had better before I buy a box for it, I've got 
a bigger drive ect so it might make a good test, always wondered what 
I'll lose buy cutting the (on paper) vram in half, still its close to a 
650 but I should be able to frag your butt with it being a shade 
quicker, again on paper.

Yes I see the option on the multi player screen. I have I, Ise, II, 
plutoniana, TNT as well as custom stuff, used to be some great sites 
around, haven't looked for ages, most I've never played. Nice to know 
you can remake the game so many ways.
I don't have Macdoom, other than the demos, wads transfered straight 
from the pc had errors, probably something weird with pc exchange, the 
ones of the cd work fine

Not sure what Ultimate is, the splash screen says ultimate doom but the 
files named Doom1 11.8mb.

There you go getting all dosy on me again. :) I'll run it through the pc 
card on a powermac and let you know how I get on. It plays diablo quite 
well and even the pc-phobic girl can put up with alittle windows. :) 
Very nice of ID to help you out like that. Both ID, Blizzard and Sierra 
for that matter, have enjoyed a good portion of my hard earned hopefully 
they will always support Mac.

Nah, no gum boots involved just lots of hacking. Guess I should RTFM. 
Speaking of warped, is there a port of Cannon Fodder for 68k mac about.
