My friend gave me an acct that had a trial dwnld of this game. I went to unlock full game to find it saying free. To my dismay it keeps saying "error code". How can I resolve this?

Hate to be the one to break this to you, but DOOM appears to be no longer on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
DOOM II is there though.

And just like that, Doom (http://www.joystiq.com/game/doom) and Double D Dodgeball (http://joystiq.com/tag/double-d-dodgeball) are no longer available on Xbox Live Arcade. Noticed by GamerBytes (http://www.gamerbytes.com/2010/10/doom_no_longer_available_on_xb.php), both titles were pulled with no warning. The games can still be played if they were previously purchased.

Double D Dodgeball's mention in this post is for the simple fact that it happened to occur at the same time as Doom's removal. Speculation as to why Doom was pulled revolves around rights issues involving id Software's acquisition by Zenimax (http://www.joystiq.com/2009/06/24/bethesda-parent-company-buys-id-software/) and the XBLA title being published by Activision.

We're following up with Zenimax to find out what its plans are for the game.

Update: A representative for Zenimax informs Joystiq that Doom's departure had to do with "expiring rights" and it "should be back up soon from Bethesda."

I know of this, but from what my friend says, if it were that it were nonexistent, then it would start, then say "can't download ...". It shows a status error code after confirming download...

I bought it from amazon.com yesterday and the guy sent me a code to download it and it works. It was $20 though, but we all know that this game is just that good hope this helps people who are looking for it
