- * < DOOM FTP/WWW Site List > * - Apr 27, 1999 Oct 13 - Removed Brazil mirror, added Greek mirror, changed 3 IP addresses, Deleted 11 URLs, Updated 2 URLs, Added 3 URLs. | 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: http://www.gamers.org/pub/archives/doom/periodic/FTP_WWW_sites.html 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).
