Quake is definitely 32 players.
As for Doom, I'm going by what options were present on screen when I was looking (remember this is the DOS version)
Maybe the Windows version of Doom (aka Doom95) can do more !?!

Anyway, I booted up the NT 3.51 installation and it's knackered (crashes during loading) so I removed it and am using that partition for miscellaneous data!

Yep, you're right. Maximum 4 players in co-operative or deathmatch mode.

Poo.

What I will do is, on the day, I'll bring a CD with Microsoft Network Client for DOS 3.0 and Microsoft LAN Manager as well as the appropriate IPX protocol stack.

If anybody wants to join in the Deathmatch DOOM with a PC running DOS, all you'll need is a PC running DOS (any variant, preferably MS-DOS 6.22), DOOM installed and DOS drivers for your network card (NDIS2 drivers are best for MS Network Client for DOS and MS-LANMAN used drivers usually located in the MSLANMAN.DOS directory on most network card driver disks)
NOTE: Please avoid MS-DOS 7.x (aka Windows 95/98 DOS mode) as I had real problems with Microsoft Network Client for DOS with Win9x DOS mode .... I don't know why, as it's supposed to be compatible, but I think Windows got in the way and used all the conventional memory (below 640k) before the IPX stack loaded

I've also got a couple of Windows 3.1 games installed on my old PC, so if anybody wants to play something a bit different, that's always an option (I've got SimCity and SimTower installed on there at the moment, but think I have some more Win31 games kicking around)

Another option, although not recommended, is if you have an old PC running Windows for Workgroups 3.1 or Windows for Workgroups 3.11, I could configure Windows to load the drivers but remain in a DOS prompt (done by creating a WINSTART.BAT in the C:\WINDOWS folder and putting COMMAND.COM as the last command in the script) but on low memory systems, there may not be enough conventional memory to run Doom (conventional memory is the stuff below the 640k barrier)

Please do let us know exactly what you are bringing . . . otherwise we will run out of room! Would be a nightmare to turn people away with machines! :(

Andy

p.s. could we get this one back on topic too please?

Just gonna be bringing the two PCs and my Amiga 3000
I was thinking of other machines, but other people are bringing those, so it's not worth me duplicating it.

Shall a new thread be created for this DOOM deathmatch idea?

AndyRCM: sorry for the topic drift there mate :)

Don't worry about me re: not enough room for machines. I'll bring what I think its useful (e.g. my DOS box filled with DOS games) and I'll let you and anyone else planning layout decide what you want to use. I don't mind if some kit has to sit the day out in the car :)

Richard,
no problem mate - it just wandered a little ;)
and again no problems with people bringing machines - it is great and we are thankful for the support you guys give. It will be great to see all of these wonderful bits of kit together!

Just been to the unit, got two amigas sorted out - one for sensi soccer ;) assuming I can find the disks! :( and the other for AMOS i think - just in case anybody feels like having a program writing session???? might show off a couple of our old demos from 1990 or so . . .

Machines ready so far, Jaguar, ZX81, Spectrum +2 (black), Gamecube, N64, Vectrex, GX4000, Saturn, Dreamcast, Amstrad 464, Atari 2600, Atari 7800, BBC 'B', Megadrive, Master System, SNES, NES, C64, Vic20, Atari ST520fm, Sam Coupe and MSX.

I think that is how far we are along . . .
