It doesn't matter if the header is PWAD or IWAD for the main game WAD, either one works using DOOM2. I previously knew this to be true for some ports I've tried but never bothered to check with the original game.

As a footnote, the patch SW18_7 is being inserted twice in the FREEDOOM wad.

You know, I don't really think it matters whether PWAD would work for the original game, since I've noticed that most of the levels were designed to work with Boom anyways. Of course, I still don't understand what the problem is with releasing an IWAD, it's just one byte's difference between the two. Oh well, now that we know it doesn't really even matter...

It's not true of PrBoom, nor of Boom I believe.
