Joel Murdoch


Joel Murdoch was a source port programmer and Doom modder active in the community during the late 1990's and early 2000's. He was a member of The Chaos Crew. Joel announced he would retire from Doom editing in 2007, and has been heard from only rarely since then.

Source ports[edit]

Joel was a contributor to MBF, where he helped Lee Killough address various issues that Boom had with running the Final Doom IWADs, and was also credited as a beta tester.

He later created his own modification of MBF entitled JDP, short for "Joel's Doom Port". It was eventually discontinued in favor of the Eternity Engine, which already included most of the modifications Joel had made to MBF.

Joel made various minor contributions to the Eternity Engine, where he is still credited in the Special Thanks section of the credits screen, and also directly released one modified version of it, with the special version name of "dev beta 5 joel-2" for the Caverns of Darkness project.
