If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade doomsday -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'"

The Doomsday Engine is an enhanced Doom/Heretic/Hexen source port for the Windows, macOS, and Linux platforms. It is based on the source code of id Software's Doom and Raven Software's Heretic and Hexen. The Doomsday Engine and the associated ports of Doom, Heretic and Hexen have been under development since 1999. The first versions were released in late 1999 and early 2000.

The purpose of the project is to create versions of these classic games that retain the feel of the originals but are implemented using modern technologies such as 3D graphics and client/server networking. A lot of emphasis is placed on good-looking graphics and usability.


  • UI Game profiles and add-on selection. Multiplayer server browser. In-game overlay with configuration options and console prompt.
  • Graphics Particle effects and dynamic lights. Bloom and vignette effects. Geometry-based ambient occlusion. Supports 3D models for objects (FBX, MD5) and sky boxes. Upscaling texture filter. Stereoscopic rendering modes.
  • Audio 3D sound effects and reverb (FMOD plugin). Supports music add-ons (MP3) and FluidSynth for high-quality MIDI music (Unix only).
  • Multiplayer Automatic discovery of LAN servers. Master server for public games. Tool for running servers in the background.
  • Technology Portable code built on Qt 5 and OpenGL.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
