View Full Version : I wanna play on doomsday master server!
August 9th, 2004, 10:29 PM
I've run into this problem so many times, cause I get so frustrated when I cannot play with other new Doom enthusiasts.
I go to the control panel for a TCP/IP multiplayer game. Then, I go to the "get from master server" button.
The description of a game I wanna join is displayed, but the connect button does not light up.
Is it possible for me to join a game in this manner? I'll see if I can find a solution in the forums here.

Uh.. the connect button doesnt activate until you click on a server

But no server name shows up when I select "get from master"
Just the info

Yeah, there are no permanent servers. You'll have to either wait for one to show up or organise a match with someone on IRC or whatever. Sorry, but the plain truth is not many people play Doomsday multiplayer. Most people stick to zdaemon for that.

ooOoo zdaemon? Is it a port?
doomsday is my fav right now

but the plain truth is not many people play Doomsday multiplayer.
but thats ot the truth there are quite a few people who play online on doomsday. http://www.doomsdayhq.com/master.php check that a couple times a day then you will now what i mean
@groit: do you have doomsday 1.8? because that is what most people use.

hmm I'll do some more footwork
that link is very helpful.. But, when I enter in the IP and make sure I'm using the same iwad files, it still does not work
my version is Doomsday Kickstart v2.09
August 10th, 2004, 03:03 PM
oh i just found out my v was 1.7.15-1
lol i tried to update it but i forgot that i was running it in background
1.8 now, Trying again....

I know that, but I wanted to make it clear that Doomsday is unlike Quake 3 or Unreal where you can find 1000 servers at any time of day. Zdaemon is the only one that remotely comes close to that, which is a shame really because its not that inspiring.

IT WORKS! at least half the time it does... thank you

btw, where is everyone getting their wads like abbspack.wad? i thought that was a pk3 file
August 10th, 2004, 04:50 PM
Abbspack.wad is probably inside the pk3 file, so doomsday reports it as loaded. I dunno for sure, never really liked Abbs alternative guns.
August 10th, 2004, 05:36 PM
abbspack.wad contains the new sounds he added for the weapon switching.
August 10th, 2004, 09:13 PM
I'm getting the 13 dwango wads now..
I'm having a lot of luck using the Doom Connector. I'd recommend it to any New Doom enthusiast since it can run Doomsday AND the other neat ports.
Wow there sure are a lot of zdaemon games.
