Doom Legacy requires one of the original doom or heretic wads to function. This means you must have one of these games in any version in order to use DL. Here is a link to download the Doom ShareWare if you do not have any other Doom or Heretic Title conating one of the wads listed below. DL Enhances whatever game or games you have. DL also requires DPMI, if you get an error saying you need to get "csdpmi*". You can download it below. You useally get this error running DL in DOS alone on older PC's.
