Russian Doom is aimed to full and proper Russian translation of Doom, Heretic and Hexen games, as well as its 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.

The project is based on Chocolate Doom and Crispy Doom, with additions from Doom Retro.

Supported games[edit]

The following games are supported:

Press Beta is available with command line parameter “-beta”, and translation of Doom for Atari Jaguar is available as a total conversion with command line parameter “-jaguar”. Both games are available "from the box", no need to download anything.

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.
