Russian Doom is source port forked from Chocolate Doom and Crispy Doom by Julian Nechaevsky, with additions from Doom Retro (with permission from Brad Harding), which aims to provide a full and proper Russian translation of Doom, Heretic and Hexen games, as well as the setup executable and online help. Additionally it has numerous vanilla bug fixes, enhanced 640x400 display resolution, improved game palettes, removed limits and offers many optional aesthetic game enhancements.

Language choosing between English and Russian is available in the game options menu, as well as in the Setup executable.

Supported games[edit]

The following games are supported:

Press Beta is available by command line parameter “-beta”, Atari Jaguar is available by command line parameter “-jaguar”, additional downloads are not required.

Gameplay enhancements[edit]

Russian Doom offers many different visual enhancements like colored blood, transparency, mouse look and brightmaps. All of them can be toggled in Gameplay options menu.

Most of features are available for Doom, many features are available for Heretic, and just few are available for Hexen.

Besides, there is also available “-vanilla” command line parameter, which will disable all enhancements without any changes in configuration file, making the game visual appearance as close as possible to original executables.
