Edit: The poll doesn't work. I'll just go by the comments I receive here.

As for the music, the PSXTCMUS.PK3 won't work directly with other wads, but you can get one which does work here.
Worked just great Tested with Ultimate DooM & Plutonia

One problem, however, is that the chaingun sound effect for the Commando and Spider Mastermind has that weird shotgun sound at the end of firing. It's strange because you don't get that if you play the regular pk3. Now, I did find a sort of method to get the enemy chaingun to sound as it does in the original Playstation version: you have to leave the DECORATE text file with the SOUNDS folder but edit out the section on keys since otherwise keys you pick up don't work correctly. Thus one could hold shift while selecting SOUNDS folder, DECORATE text file, a psx music WAD that I found on Doom Depot, and whatever wad to make the experience that more intense.
Nevertheless, I still would find it helpful to have a polished psx sound effects pk3, wad, etc. to download; the method I employed sometimes doesn't completely go as intended. For instance, if I make my own custom music wad with XWE in place of the psxmus wad (e.g. weaving in PSX Final Doom music), it will sometimes work and sometimes not. Now I have found some psx/n64 sound effects files, but none that quite get the psx sound FX as they should be. As I quoted, dxrxix mentioned working on a pk3 file, which is awesome. Is it music or sound FX? If it's sfx, I haven't noticed a link for this file yet unless I simply am glancing over it. If that is the case, could someone repost a link for this psx sound effects pk3? Or if it indeed has not been posted yet I can't wait to try it.
