→‎WiiDoom-Fork: It's appreciated that people still edit this site, and more download mirrors are great, but I feel too much information was removed about the fork. Plus, some people might still want the link with the Chex Quest pwads included.
== WiiDoom-Fork ==
Short version, [[user:Mr. ReaperThecolorofmoney|Mr. ReaperThecolorofmoney]] gets all the credit for finding and packaging this fork of WiiDoom. I just removed the Chex Quest PWADs and repackaged it into a .zip rather than .7zip (personal preference), and uploaded to a better file host.
This Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/c6f5s0l760gudfo/WiiDoom-fork added some controller options, music support, and it fixed a long-standing bug where stereo sound was reversed in the game (sounds which should come from the right were coming from the left). zip?dl=0
[[user:Mr. Reaper|Mr. Reaper]] also did a bit of hex editing of the .dol in order to alter the expected locations of the Timidity files so they could be put within the WiiDoom folder instead of being on the root, to make things more tidy. Don't try renaming that WiiDoom folder; the casing is hard-coded, if you do, to quote [[user:Mr. Reaper|Mr. Reaper]], "you'll get crashy!"
Roughly 20 to 30 megsLong version, not sure, didn't checkfrom [[user:Mr. Reaper|Mr.Reaper]]:
The default WiiDoom download above seems to crash if you try to load DOOM1.WAD (the included shareware Doom!). It did run for me with the standard DOOM.WAD though. But I found this WiiDoom-Fork, which is an updated and improved version: https://github.com/smitnich/WiiDoom-Fork It does run the included Doom Shareware. And, as noted on its page, this fork added some controller options, music support, and it fixed a long-standing bug where stereo sound was reversed in the game (sounds which should come from the right were coming from the left). I don't think any other Wii Doom port has fixed that problem. However, this fork was not packaged correctly on the github site, so I went ahead and put together a functional package, including the Timidity files which enable music. I also did a bit of hex editing of the .dol in order to alter the expected locations of those files so they could be put within the WiiDoom folder instead of being on the root, to make things more tidy. And by the way, that WiiDoom path is hard-coded, so don't try renaming it or you'll get crashy! Also, along with the DOOM1.WAD (shareware) file, I included Chex Quest and Chex Quest 2 PWADs (those are also free), so you should be able to play this without any further downloads. Unfortunately this port cannot load .DEH files which are needed to fully convert mods like Chex Quest, so not quite everything in the games will be converted -- for example, the Flemmoids will shoot at you even though they normally shouldn't. And note that Chex Quest 2 uses sounds from Chex Quest (1), so they both must be loaded in order to play Chex Quest 2 (without having Doom sounds in the game, anyway). Including the sound files does make for a much larger download... so this is 29.4 meg. Download here: https://www.dropboxdatafilehost.com/sd/c6f5s0l760gudfo/WiiDoom-fork052f38df (Careful, it looks like this free file host tries to open popups that download crapware. Just close the popup immediately and click the download link on the original page until you get the 7zip file. Feel free to mirror this file at a better host.zip?dl=0)
