Playing zdoom with more than one player requires networking. You have a choice of coop (cooperative) play or dm (deathmatch). Heh, someone should line up some deathmatch lessons for you. :p

One player has to be the host and starts zdoom with the -host n argument where n is the total number of players. Others start with -join (host name or ip address).

One computer (the server):

zdoom -host X

Where X is the total number of people playing. Add whatever other parameters you want to use afterward the -host command.

Other computer(s) (clients):

zdoom -join xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the host computer. You need not include any other parameters unless you're using custom files in which the same files need to be loaded in the same order.

Example:

Host:

zdoom -host 3 -file mywad.wad mydeh.deh -warp 22 -skill 4 -deathmatch -nomonsters

Clients:

zdoom -join 66.77.0.191 -file mywad.wad mydeh.deh

If you are on modems you will probably need to use -dup 2 also for the game to run at normal speed.
