Apr 27, 1999

Oct 13 - Removed Brazil mirror, added Greek mirror, changed 3 IP addresses,

| Apr 27 - Holy Cow. Has it been THAT long??? Sorry 'bout that. Deleted
| Illinois, France, Italy, 1 Aussie mirrors, changed 3 IP addresses.
| Deleted 10 URLs, Updated 6 URLs, Added 11 URLs.

NOTE: A '|' in column 1 means that this line was changed or added
since the last edition of this sites list.

NOTE: A disturbing trend that I've noticed is the lack of support for
simpler browsers. Some authors even refuse to provide pages to
non-frames-capable browsers. These are noted below, and will be
removed if they do not attempt to provide info to *everyone*.

NOTE: Various html versions of this document exist, including this one:

Primary DOOM FTP Sites and Mirrors
The "Primary" site contains the "master copy" of the DOOM FTP Archive.
Contributions can be uploaded to the /pub/idgames/incoming directory,
but LMPs should be uploaded to the /pub/idgames/lmps/incoming directory.
"Mirror" sites each have a duplicate of the primary's idgames hierarchy
(sometimes with a different name) that is updated on a daily basis.
If a mirror site is closer to you, please use it instead of the primary.
Log in as "anonymous" or "ftp". Use your e-mail address as the password.
Some ftp sites also support WWW access (noted by http URL in list below).

California: (Primary Site)
| Arizona:
New York:
| Austria:
| Portugal:
S. Africa:


SPECIAL NOTE: John Van Essen (that's me!) created a WWW page showing the hierarchy in a graphical directory
tree format with hyperlinks to each directory at has full tree. has fewer subdirs.
