Installing Doom II for DOS from CD (TTID #225)

Author: Kevin   Views: 15,862 /  Created: November 29, 2002
This article will show you how to install Doom II for DOS from CD.
Note: We are using the CD shown below:

http://www.tacktech.com



Insert Doom II CD into your CD-ROM drive.

Run Windows Explorer.

Click the CD-ROM drive.
Note: The CD-ROM drive letter is drive D: in this example.

Double-Click the Doom2 folder.

Double-Click Install.bat

Enter the drive letter to install to.
We are using C, the default, in this example.

Note: If you have another partition to install to type that letter. Just be sure to remember what drive you choose because a Shortcut Icon will not be created by most DOS installers.

Type on the directory (folder) you would like to install to.
We are installing to the default directory.

Notes: Use the backspace and arrow keys to navigate. You are not allowed to create sub directories. Again, remember what you choose because a Shortcut Icon will not be created by most DOS installers.

If you selected a directory (folder) that does not exist you will be prompted to confirm you want to create it.

Press the Y key to continue.

Wait for the installation files to copy to the hard drive.

Wait while the files are extracted.

Select the Controller Type.

Note: If you are a Keyboard Junkie select Keyboard only. Back in the day, people who used the Keyboard were considered more skilled. Now, use of mouse is expected. If you are playing a DeathMatch use a Mouse unless you are daring. You always can tell who is using a Mouse.

Select the Music Playback Device.

Note: Most sound cards this days are Sound Blaster compatible; however, with newer sound cards and Windows General Midi works and sounds better. If you are using Windows NT or Windows 2000 choose NONE since DOS audio playback is forbidden.

Select the MIDI PORT.

Note: Try the default if you do not know the correct PORT.

Otherwise, press the Enter key.

Select Yes.
