Hi DOOMers!

Now that old classic DOOM (1-2) are released on Steam, what are the best
DOOM clients to use for Internet multiplayer, especially
co-operative/co-op.?

A few years ago, I tried Doomsday. I loved its graphic and audio engine
with their addons (e.g., high textures), but its online play was lacking
and I couldn't find people to play with especially with co-op. I looked
at other clients, but I didn't like the old sprites and MIDI. Are there
anything else I missed?

Thank you in advance. :)

Skulltag has an OpenGL renderer. Not as fancy as Doomsdays but there is a
hi res texture and model pack you can use with it.

Put those in the skins folder.

Thanks. Yeah, not very pretty like Doomsdays. :(
