Mac DooM Legacy v1.32b1 (MDL) is the final port available for the classic PPC Mac OS (9.2.2 & earlier) version of DooM Legacy. It uses a modernized custom DooM engine built on id's original code. This version supports OpenGL rendering and TCP/IP networking.

Supports playing of all Doom 1 & 2 WADs and Heretic 1 WAD plus 3rd party PWADs.

It can also use the shareware DooM1.WAD & Heretic1.WAD files. Also, 3rd party add-on maps (PWADS) used with a full version's .WAD file.

MD5 checksum: e7b6d952c8dbcdf6e79faa9b6d54d502 *macdoomlegacy-132.sit

OpenGL rendering of sprites. Look up & down (free look). TCP/IP networking. Support for all Doom I & II .WADs plus Heretic .WAD. 3D flooring (3rd party). Partial invisibility of sprites, now translucent. Console, commandline editing while playing. Great game play.

@dr.zeissler: dunno if Nick's about, but you can download Pinochestein 3D from MODDB or Doomworld and find out if it works for yourself (2015 builds). Also available at Doom WAD Station (2003 & 2010 builds).

I haven't tried it myself, so cannot comment on it's usability with DooM Legacy.
It appears have a political theme (fight a futuristic fascist Pinoche-like regime) and to me, going by the screenshots on those sites, looks more like Wolfenstein 3D than Doom in appearance.

[Edit] I've looked at a few (untested by me so far) and I would think the earlier 2003 version will be the likely one to work with DooM Legacy. It includes the Windows version of Legacy in it's download, as the player. Later 2015 builds don't include .WAD files, they include .PK3 files and are optimized to run on GZDoom and Zandronum.

[Edit 2] OK, I've looked at 2003, and it does not play in Legacy. The two from 2015 will not play. The 2010 WAD does play. It has a lot of what are known as "Bad HOMs", but these can be cleaned up fairly well using ZenNode or Zen Shell. It's not what I would call "pretty" but it still can be can be enjoyed as is. There appears to be a full 32 levels and it requires DOOM2.WAD to be present for playing in Legacy.

[Edit 3] Looked at the 2003 build again. What I hadn't realized was they had supplied a modified Doom2.wad and this contains the Pinochestein game proper. Plus it is superior to the 2010 build when played in Doom Legacy 1.3.2, with better fire power, original sounds and far less glitches than those found in the 2010 build.

The 2003 build of the Doom2.wad did require HOM removal, I used Zen Shell to do this. I also needed to use the "doom3.wad" as supplied with the version of Doom Legacy on this page, and not the one supplied in the 2003 download.

It's just a pity that this classic version of Legacy does not play the original Doom2 music tracks (the OS X same version build of Legacy, does).

Music is not working correctly on the games. Instruments sound wrong/bad and by far too silent. Cannot change this.

Where can I get the music patch?
