  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.

      A 1994 map with some of the limitations you might expect, but overall this is well thought out and executed. It's also a very good challenge, certainly on the UV setting. It's actually for E1M1, as another review points out.   There's a Doom 2 conversion of this on the Demon Gate CD compilation, and maybe others.   A bit better than the bare 4 stars. Around 8.5+ out of 10.

      I was surprised to see that this was a WAD made in 1994, it doesn't have many of the mistakes you would find in other WADs, it's fairly nonlinear but never to the point of being a bad maze, and it's a fun short map all around. While there might be a bit more ammo than you'll really need, the WAD is solid for 1994 and might even be fun for deathmatch, maybe. Overall, a 1994 WAD worth playing!

      I had a lot of fun with this. I absolutely love the Doom 3 textures being put to use, too. Excellent atmosphere, and probably one of the more 'fitting' uses of RSKY1 I've seen in quite some time. This level strongly encourages the player to thoroughly explore for secrets, otherwise your ammo count would always end up getting tight.   I would have given this 5 stars, had it not been for two things:   1) As mentioned before, ammo was particularly short towards the beginning. When I first played this I struggled with trying to conserve my Shotgun shells - having a Chaingun instead of having to resort to the Pistol might've been an improvement, although this didn't really bother me too much in all honesty.   2) Towards the end, I had an issue where picking up the yellow keycard made three nearby Imps atop of the cliff-faces unkillable. Not exactly sure what happened here, just make sure to kill them before collecting the key if you wish for a 100% kill rate.   Other than that, this was excellently done. Good job, Romulus!  :D

      Felt so much like the original Wolfenstein and Spear of Destiny. Used just the right balance of new Gzdoom features and old style Wolfenstein play! Excellent.

      Barely playable. You're given bare armaments, and have to contend with using a shotgun against Hellknights and Revenants until you drop down a hole, get stuck in a maze of tunnels filled with enemies, and then find yourself in an outdoor area, still unarmed, but surrounded by enemies. Honestly, I think Sisyphus has it easier.
