Cacodemon Super Growth Hormone
This patch for DOOM registered version 1.666 replaces the cacodemon
with a Super Cacodemon: TWICE the size of the original! To keep them
proportional, they have eight times the mass and therefore are eight times
more difficult to kill than the original cacodemons. Their fireballs can
do up to four times the damage.
Two new sound files relative to the cacodemon are included, along
with the 36 .gif files that replace all of the original cacodemon sprites
in DOOM.WAD. Please make a backup copy of your DOOM.WAD and DOOM.EXE
files, as this patch permanently alters them.
Also, you need dmgraph, dmaud, and dehacked in your DOOM directory
to install this patch.
Copy bigcaco.deh to your \patches directory if you have one.
To use this patch, unzip it into your DOOM directory and type 'install'.
To see the Super Cacodemons in action, type 'e2m9'.

This patch is not intended for use with already existing pwads and the
DOOM.WAD because of the increased size of the cacodemons (they will all
be stuck in the walls or ceilings!). It is designed for use with
new pWADs specially made to account for the enormous size of the
