Russian Doom is source port forked from Chocolate Doom (with additions from Crispy Doom) by Julian Nechaevsky 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.

Supported games[edit]

The following games are supported.

The engine automatically loads Russian-translated resources depending on the game you are playing. However, due to port specifics and language differences, it is recommended to only play the original game series.

Game enhancements[edit]

All enhancements are optional and may be disabled to get the completely original feeling of the DOS version. It can be done in the ex-compatibility section of the Setup executable and all of them are available only for Doom.
