Yes I grabbed the original PC game data from GOG (with the expansions). Sorry no idea why you are having trouble with Black Gate, works fine for me.

Hi,

I might update my old ZDOOM port one day but I don't think the Amiga is powerful enough to support the newer 2.x versions I'm afraid.

If you are not using real MIDI hardware (CAMD) then you should disable music (OGG) as the 68K CPU is too slow to decode digital music unfortunately.

There are other options you can play with that...
