A McDonald's Cash Register Was Successfully Modded To Play Doom

The modding community has been synonymous with gaming as long as the internet has had a gaming culture scene, and the creativity of modders has only grown over the years. One famous subject of the modding community has been the original Doom by id Software. Modders have been able to port the classic game onto every device imaginable, from graphing calculators to smart fridges. There have even been modded roombas that create custom Doom maps. Now, one talented modder has managed to run Doom on a discarded McDonald’s cash register, and fans are lovin’ it.

As reported on Kotaku Australia, 19-year-old modder Ryan Edgar was able to make the original Doom run on an old McDonald’s cash register. Edgar came to own the old Maccas register after his local McDonald’s was replacing them with more updated POS systems. Edgar then quickly got to work transferring Doom to the old Maccas system using a flash drive that contained ZDoom on it.

After auto running the installation, Edgar was able to play the game using a keyboard and mouse connected to the register through a USB splitter. The game supposedly runs like a charm, and Edgar plans on attempting to install Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on it next. This is quite a crafty and creative feat for a modder, and hopefully it inspires someone to put Wolfenstein on a Burger King cash register next.
