Freedoom is a project to create a complete Doom II-compatible IWAD file which is Free Software' The IWAD file is the file used by Doom which contains all the game data (graphics, sound effects, music, etc')' While the Doom source code is Free, you currently still need one of the proprietary IWAD files from id in order to play Doom' Freedoom aims to create a Free alternative' Combined with the GPL-licensed Doom source code this will result in a complete Free Doom-based game' The Freedoom project has already succeeded in creating a complete set of replacement textures for the original Doom games, as well as a large amount of extra material (sound effects, graphics, sprites, etc)' All of the Freedoom material can be freely redistributed, modified and reused without restriction provided credit is given to the project'
Another large update to Freedoom, representing many changes to the game, giving a better feel for being an independent game and fleshing out neglected areas of the project. We’re not done yet, but close! Brand new status bar. New sprites for the serpent and orb monster. New HUD graphics for the single- and double-barrel shotguns, missile launcher, and SKAG. New pain sounds for many monsters and the player. New maps in Phase 1 and Phase 2. 10.1 includes a fully-completed set of sprites for the flame bringer in Phase 2 and FreeDM.
