      More information about this is below.

  1. Go to https://zandronum.com/ and download the installer of it and install it with all the default directories
  2. Place your DOOM2.WAD into the doomseeker (C:\Program Files (x86)\Zandronum\Doomseeker) folder which is located in the installation folder. You can get your DOOM2.wad from your game install.
  3. If we are playing any custom maps, just ask someone in TeamSpeak which one it is, all .wad files go into the doomseeker (C:\Program Files (x86)\Zandronum\Doomseeker) folder.
  4. Inside the doomseeker (C:\Program Files (x86)\Zandronum\Doomseeker) folder there should be a doomseeker.exe, run that and make sure to update it.
  5. Search for 'SameTeem' in the search bar and join the server
Just ask on TS if you need any help
