SkullTag Football [version 2]


SkullTag Football is a Doom mod that focuses on the Team Game game mode using the SkullTag game engine. This project is a continuation of the original 'SkullTag Football' Doom mod that was released in 27 July, 2005, in which this version was designed to fix compatibility issues with later versions of the SkullTag game engine. With given permission from the original author from STFBall, STFBall2 contains various fixes and improvements. Some maps contain various tweaks to work better with players and the football itself, as well as a new football code designed by a ZDoom user, Ghastly_Dragon. Following further, SkullTag Football is heavily multiplayer supported. This game can support thirty-two players or more if using the Zandronum game engine, unfortunately, SkullTag Bots are incompatible with this game. Try to gather as many people as possible when trying SkullTag Football.

Install and Play

Playing any Doom mod is quite easy with today's modern source ports and tools.

1. Download the mod you want to play
2. Be sure that you have the desired Source Port ready to use
3. I would recommend using a 'Front-End' program.
    List of known Front-End programs:
    This front-end tool will allow you to easily load any number of mods directly to the source port.
    If you choose not use a front-end program, you can still accomplish the same effect by using the
    Command Line [ ]
4. Configure the front-end program as needed
5. And finally, play!
