YouTuber Tech Tangent Runs Epic Quadruple Dose Of Doom Across 4 DOS PCs

Tech modder “Tech Tangents” has successfully managed to run the iconic shooter across four monitors, by installing the game on four DOS PCs.

Story Highlights

  • Doom has become an institution in the first-person shooter genre, inspiring many other titles throughout the decades.
  • Tech modder “Tech Tangents” has made history by managing to run the iconic shooter across four monitors.
  • He used four custom-built DOS PCs to do the job.
  • This remarkable milestone was more special because it was Doom’s 30th anniversary this year.

Doom is one of the most iconic first-person shooter games of all time, and its influence is still felt to this day. To celebrate its 30th anniversary this year, fans have been finding new and creative ways to play the game.

One modder has taken it to the next level by getting the original Doom to run on four different monitors. Each is attached to a DOS-powered PC.

YouTuber Tech Tangents has documented the process of getting the game to run on four separate PCs in their latest video.

The game designers intended it for MS-DOS, but the PCs in the video, with their faster processors, challenge the game’s familiarity. This makes the process of getting the game to run across four monitors a lot more difficult.

The YouTuber explains that while Doom does support multi-monitor set-ups, this method is overkill. The modder finally installed the game on all four machines after much tinkering and now the game runs on all four monitors, with three of them dedicated to the main game.

Each monitor with 90-degree discrepancies that make things look a little weird. However, he uses the fourth monitor for the map.

This is a very interesting way of running the classic shooter. It’s a testament to the dedication of Doom fans. Not only is Doom one of the most influential FPS releases in history, but it also pioneered online multiplayer long before it became common.

The young studio managed to knock it out of the park with the first Doom. The series is still going strong even now.

However, it’s amazing to see how far fans have gone to keep the game alive. From running it on four DOS-powered PCs to porting it to modern consoles, Doom fans have consistently managed to get the game to run on just about any device.

The enduring legacy of the game testifies to its timeless appeal and guarantees many more years of celebration.
