There's an old debate on whether or not Doom is just a fancy ray caster game, that it's simply a beefed up version of the Wolfenstein 3D engine. True, however, this is what Doom may have looked like if it was built using only the original Wolfenstein 3D engine, in this case the Raycasting Game Maker engine has been used.

2. Resizing Window:

Sometimes when you Alt+Tab in and out of the game window and then try to resize the window--the window shrinks down to the minimal possible size. Restart the game if this happens.

3. Glitches:

Sometiems moving the game window around on the desktop causes the menu screen to freeze overthe actual gameplay window. Alt-F4 if necessary.

Occasionally some of the doors won't open and you can hear the door open and close sound echorepeatedely during game play when this happens. Restart the game.
