  3. WinDEU for Beginners: A Pictorial Guide (Microsoft Word Document)

    Complete illustrated guide to making DOOM levels with WinDEU v5.24, the Windows DOOM level editor written by Renaud Paquays and based on DEU 5.21 by Raphael Quinet. This guide also works for DEU v5.xx or DETH v3.xx-4.xx, since the functions are nearly identical (with the exception of right-click which is absent in the DOS editor).

    The guide has step-by-step snapshots of a level in progress in WinDEU, so you can follow the illustrations as you go along. The WinDEU interface is explained, as well as configuring WinDEU to edit either DOOM or DOOM II.

  5. Right Scroll

    Play it. Holy poop on a stick, that texture is scrolling the wrong way!!! This is incredible!!! If only this was known ten years ago people might have cared!!!!

    For the more technical minded, the trick is done by creating a whole ton of extra linedefs with the wall scroll special which all reference the same sidedef as the one you want to scroll backwards. You need to reference the sidedef an additional X-1 times, where X is the width of the texture in pixels.

    While a backwards-scrolling texture is the most obvious trick, you can also change the number of extra sidedef references to just make the scrolling texture haul ass super fast.

    Another idea would be to make a super-wide texture comprised of smaller "frames" placed side by side, i.e. make a giant wide texture with individual 32-pixel-wide frames side by side. Then make 31 extra sidedef references and the texture will appear to animate at 35 FPS because the texture will shift over 32 pixels every tic to the next "frame."

  11. DOOM Editing - A Getting Started Guide

    This document will give you an overall idea of what's involved in DOOM WAD creation and editing.

    The problem is that you can't do this with a single utility, in fact I must have used or reviewed some thirty different utilities during the creation of my WADs, and it has taken me a lot of time and effort reading stuff and asking other people for help to find out what is often something really simple. And it takes a long while to sift through all the utilities there are out there to find the ones you really need.

    So, this won't be a guide to WAD editing per se because there are some great documents out there already but it will give you a conceptual overview, an idea of the many things you can do when WAD editing and probably most importantly, links to the utilities and documents you will need. Hopefully, this will save you a LOT of time if you are just starting out, and may also be of help to the less experienced WAD authors.

    Two WADs. One Good (?). One Ugly... This is intended as a Tutorial to help beginner WAD builders make better WADs. SACRIFOR.WAD is a Doom II conversion of the first WAD I ever wrote, and is a good example of why you should never upload your first WAD! SACRIFCO.WAD is the same, but with more intelligent use of textures and light levels, and with all the unclosed sectors and other errors corrected.

      Typical newbie's first map. It has weirdly placed textures, randomly placed monsters and claustrophobic layout. Two stars for some action and exit place.

      To me, this is yet other E1 style full-episode, it's plays good, not too bad, just like the original E1 but getting lost so easily. And unless you're doing Pistol-start or your ammo will be TOO MUCH, well, it's not author's fault as id did the same shit on the original E1 too, but on 2013 it may just a little awkward.   Most of levels just plays like typical E1 levels, nothing too special but for those who like the E1 should like this too, unless "getting lost/multi-ways" is not something you like...for me, I just do "sv_fastweapons 1" after E1M9 beaten, shame on me, I know, but that's why E1 style just too easily to fall into a boring monsters-killing-fest if nothing so special, and until E1M8, I didn't see any of them so special...maybe some secrets...:\   Overall, I would say it's fine E1 episode replacement, for those who love this kind of levels.

      Old map from 95. Not really intresting design, but I didn't find any wrong alignments homs or whatever. Monster placment is ok. Except one room cramped with trees and mass of hitscanners without any cover. Progression is very confusing, you may find some unintended shortcuts which confuses even more.

      Akimbo weapons are nothing new but it is nice to see the Doom weapon line-up to be duel-wielded. Maps that are tight on ammo can be a problem and the secondary fire modes are rather underwhelming, with some being straight-up worse than if you shoot normally. Otherwise, it's a fun mod.

      Classic style, plays so id feel, good and bad designs too, since it was designed for the DTWID project and then rejected. Impossible to get 100% kills because a monster cannot get teleport out with 1-time only teleport line...   If you like the old-school id style, this one is for you, if you're not, well, maybe give it a try if you don't really hate id levels.
