DoomShell was born out of sheer lazyness of entering screens full of command lines to set-up our nice deathmatch doom arena.
We'd all sit down behind our super-duper cyber megastation, amps
pumped up beyond the 0dB mark, all fired up to whack eachother's brains
out, only to find that we had to spend the next three hours shouting at
eachother in pure frustration to get the whole thing going.
DoomShell started out just as a program to launch our netdoom sessions, but a lot has changed since then. Check out the list of features below and enjoy!
