Archive Maintainer : This is an old DMGRAPH/DMAUD patch converted
to wad format, with a few minor additions
for it to be used with either Doom or Doom2.
Update to : homerdm2.zip (not in the idgames archive).
Note, homerdm2.zip and homerd2b.zip are
unrelated to the sound-only wad located at:
Recommended location : ./idgames/themes/simpsons/homerd2b.zip
Advanced engine needed : No
Primary purpose : No levels included
(this is a graphics/sound patch)
Title : HOMER'S DOOM (version 2b).
I had to call it version 2b because there's
already a homerdm3.zip in the archive :(
Filename : homerd2b.wad
Release date : December 2000 (although I released this wad
conversion on local BBSs back in late 1996).
Authors : Original version - Brad
Version 2 Update - Sparky of KISS Software
Email Address : firstname.lastname@example.org
Description : A Partial Conversion for all versions of
Doom/Doom2 based on The Simpsons TV show.
Homer's Doom features: 2 new monsters, a new
shotgun, new menu graphics and status bar
(including Homer's face), and lots of new
sounds from The Simpsons.
The only changes I made from the original
Dmgraph/Dmaud patch are:
- fixed a few graphics faults and sprite
- added some missing animation frames for
the Imp and the exploding TVs.
- added blank graphic patches for Doom's
Episode1 intermission screen.
- copied sky1 to rsky1 for use with Doom2.
- copied wimap0 to interpic also for use
- modified some of the main menu option
graphics (load/save game, episode/skill
Additional Credits to : In the previous text file from 1996 I
thanked my fiance for her patience. She's
now my wife, and I still thank her for her
unending patience and love.

Map # : Any - this is graphics/sound pwad
Single Player : Yes
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : No
Other game styles : No
Difficulty Settings : Not applicable
Play with 'Plain Vanilla' Doom or Doom II:
a) you will need to add the extra sprite graphics to homerd2b.wad
using a program such as DeuSF, WinTex, NWT, etc. For example:
deusf -as homerd2b.wad
b) with the extra sprites patched, just load the wad normally:
doom -file homerd2b.wad
doom2 -file homerd2b.wad
Play with a Source Port:
A better option is to use a Doom Source Port that can import pwads
containing sprite graphics such as: Boom, PrBoom, MBF, SMMU, PrjDoom,
ZDoom, Legacy, etc. Patching is not required with these ports, just
run the wad as-is. For example: boom -file homerd2b
