Hi,

I have been browsing through the net that is there a way how to get more than four players through IPX in Doom or Doom2 but havent found a solution yet, so I decided to ask also here. Any solutions to increase the multiplayer amount?

I'm not an expert in these things but I had a look and found a source port which supports up to 32 players and can be compiled with IPX support (it uses TCP/IP by default): http://doomlegacy.sourceforge.net/docs/legacy.html It looks significantly different from the original DOOM though.

One thing to keep in mind is that original DOOM levels only have starts for players 1-4 in coop mode. You can have more than 4 deathmatch starts, though, so there, the limit may be lifted by a source-port.

As far as I know, there is not.

Your best bet is multiplayer Doom on modern source ports, such as:
