I just checked chex.wad, and the first level (E1M1) has player starts for all four players, but the other levels do not. They do have zorchmatch (deathmatch) however.

You will not be able to play in cooperative mode, but you can play zorchmatch.

I recommend you either play The Ultimate Chex Quest (my project) using GZDooM or Chex Quest 3.  They both have the original in them, and both have cooperative starts in all of the levels.

If you like, I can post links for them.

Chex Quest 3 can be downloaded at http://www.chucktropolis.com/downloads/ChexQuest3.zip

T.U.C.Q. Release 6 can be obtained at http://www.doomlegends.com/chexquest/TUCQR6.zip

It is best played with an older version of GZDooM at https://zdoom.org/downloads

And a program called ZDL can be used to make it easier to run.  http://www.doomlegends.com/chexquest/zdl31a.zip


Let me know if you need assistance.

Alternatively, if your looking for multiplayer, https://zandronum.com/ is the go to these days. Follow the instructions on https://zandronum.com/download for how to install.


Zandronum has a server browser to let you easily join existing multiplayer games, and will automatically download any mods you are missing. If just playing co-op with a friend, I believe it supports direct connections as well, but can't remember too much about how to do that.
Shh!  I'm taking a break from reality.

Yes, you can connect directly to a friend, but the person hosting will need to forward some ports. There's guides on how to do this but it might be a bit confusing if you're not familiar with stuff like IP addresses and your router's configuration page.

If you don't want to host your own servers, I have 24/7 Chex servers up, search for IFOC in Doomseeker if you would like to play them.

If the wad you want to play isn't on there, let me know, I can put up a new server pretty easily.

It seems like Zandronum / Doomseeker work on XP

I think GzDoom won't, though, so Zand might be your best bet.

This makes me think maybe there should be an "Essential Downloads" thread pinned for people who are just getting started.
