MidDoom was an early source port by Ryan Nunn, alias Triforce, based off DOSDoom. A shortlived port, it most notably brought networking and HUD improvements, including advanced player and level stats and a menu system to choose IWADs.

History[edit]

MidDoom's exact first release date is unknown. The port based itself around DOSDoom 0.301, which was released on January 4, 1998. It is unknown if later DOSDoom additions were added to MidDoom as none were exactly mentioned. The last version of MidDoom was released on February 1, 1998, as version 0.3. It fixed a lot of bugs, enabled a HUD with player and level stats and player names in networking, and a menu system.

The Level Stats HUD appears directly above the Status Bar or At the bottom of
the screen in Full Screen Mode.

The Player Stats HUD:

The Player Stats HUD is toggled with the H Key. The HUD has three modes. Off, Left and
Right.
