Better late than never, or a complete load of nonsense?

The restrictions on Doom and Doom II officially expired on 31 August following a meeting of the Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons (Bundesprufstelle) earlier in the month.

The Bundesprufstelle reportedly decided to reconsider the game’s status following an appeal by Bethesda Softworks, the current owner of iD Software, which created Doom.

Bethesda argued that the game’s crude graphics had been surpassed by many modern titles and, as a result, the violence it depicted had far less of an impact.

OpenC1

 
 30 May 2011 @ 11:46 AM 

This piece of software aims to allow a couple of old (but great) games run on modern hardware/software before the copyright holders gave a cease and desist.  You can run it on copyright free data files as a work in progress using the files on the site here are some videos.

The short version reads:

Of course this is a work in progress and as always there is a better way if you have access to the original games:

Here is what you do to run Full Carmageddon with OpenC1 I run it in Windows 7. First install the game maybe with dosbox, then run the game within dosbox, type in IWANTTOFIDDLE in the main- or race menu. You will hear a wheel screeach or similar when game is done Decoding files. Now transfer your datafolder from installed carma and link it in OpenC1Settings.txt good luck!

Speaking of coming in peace, it reminds me of an excellent low-budget sci-fi from the early 90s, Dark Angel

I haven’t been able to locate an English version of this which is kind of sad as it’s the very first piece of software all of my kids learned to use as toddlers…
