Back in the 90's, my favorite dehacked mod was Werner Spahl's Theme Patch v1.7.
It doesn't work right on modern ports so I've fixed it up:
Among other fixes, adjusted all the sprite offsets according to Revenant100's Sprite Fixing project (and doom2.wad) and took the fist and pistol frames from it, flipped them horizontally, and recentered them. Properly set up decaldef and GLdefs too.
or here's an alternate of the second wad/deh intended more for maps not designed for it or for deathmatch.
I originally made this in 1999. Updated it with the newer/better fixes.
or here's the five maps made/adapted for it fixed & combined into one wad without conflicts
+ the Marine Doom map. Requires Theme17f.wad and supplies its own deh.
All maps have par times to meet or beat.
The dehacked is included in whatever wad. I just supplied the .deh files outside in case someone wants to
try applying to vanilla doom.exe or doom2.exe. But sprites would have to be added to the wad.
Old player skinpack I made from/for it in 1999.
My improvised (but good) T-1000 pain sound makes me laugh.
Then of course there's the notorious DBP#48 AvPvTvJvHvS
Latest Zandronum compatible version recommended.
Much less demanding running in that compared to LZDoom or GZDoom
Can also try @gibbon 's RZDoom version (requires dbp48zan.pk3 ATM):
The Theme Patch maps converted to it:
They replace the normal Doom 2 maps so the DBP#48 maps are
still available at the same time. Theme maps have specific things
rather than random spawners except Marine1 has lots of random.
All maps have par times to meet or beat. The Technomancer moves
faster than Seagal.
zandronum -file dbp48zan.pk3 dbp48zan.wad th48maps.wad
So pick your flavor of AvPvT!
Just tested all them in LZDoom multiple instanced 2 player "splitscreen"
(Could do 4 player but was just testing)
There's more Terminator stuff by SkeletronMK666 including Robocop vs Terminator.
For a great TC dedicated to just Robocop, there's Robocop Doom by impiethethird
For purely Aliens, Justin Fisher's TC was the first great one.
Out of curiously I might check out someone's Heretic conversion called Aliens vs Heretic.
A newer good one is Aliens: Eradication TC.
And yet another is Aliens Mod for EDGE
There's @realkontrakommando 's mods. While much has been incorporated in AvPvTVJvHvS,
Aliens: The Ultimate Doom had a totally different set of graphics and more player classes.
Also check out my movie guide, free of spoilers.
Or just make sure you see the first two great movies of each series and the next best movie is the Alien prequel, Prometheus.
