[UPDATED] Hakros Doom Launcher v.1.6

Post by hakrosinteractive »



Hi everyone

I have created this application for Windows to manage all the classic DOOM games, as well HERETIC and HEXEN and to be able to launch the games using mods, addons and community maps in a comfortable and simple way.

This new version includes its own content explorer that allows you to download new contents easily and free from the official website with a complete selection of the best mods and addons from the DOOM community, and of course you can add your own content downloaded from internet.

Base app, contains just the base configuration (essential mods included)
And of course if you have any suggestion you can send it on forums

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

This software requires .NET Framework 4.6.1, you can find it here

I believe this thread is in the wrong section; I'm pretty sure it belongs in Software and Ports.

Don't make a new thread there, though, just wait for a site moderator to move it to the correct area.

Video demo - Version 1.6

The app allows you to combine any mod, addon or map easily with just a few clicks
You only need to select the iwad of the game, mods, addons and maps and press launch button.
Not all mods and addons are compatibles but is funny to try multiple combinations

Hello, it has been brought to our attention that the download to your launcher contains full, commercial version game data for Doom, Doom 2, Final Doom, Strife, Heretic, and Hexen. Would you mind removing that data from the download? That is not legal to distribute. Once you've done so, you may feel free to repost the download links that I've removed.

You were right.
It was an error uploading the data. It is already solved.

Yes, the idea is that it is a launcher for everyone to add their own content, but how I have prepared a pack with featured content, I will try to add these as well.
