* Construction *
Base : player and sargeant sprites from Doom/Doom2,
copyright id Software.
Editor(s) used : Dmgraph, DeuTex and NWT
Known Bugs : the Marines fall to the floor a little to
quickly when they die.
May Not Run With... : JDoom v0.81
Play with Regular Doom/Doom2:
a) add the extra sprites to guy2sar2.wad using a program such as
DeuSF, WinTex, NWT, etc. For example: deusf -as guy2sar2.wad
b) run the game with: doom -file guy2sar2.wad
or doom2 -file guy2sar2.wad
or for a multiplayer game run DeathManager and select guy2sar2.wad
Play with a Doom Source Port:
A much better option is to use a Doom Source Port that can import
pwads containing sprite graphics; such as: Boom, PrBoom, MBF, SMMU,
PrjDoom, Vavoom, ZDoom, Legacy, Edge, etc. Patching is not required,
just use the wad as-is. For example: boom -file guy2sar2

The original text file follows:
Now YOU are the Sargeants going around killing the marines! You can play
DeathMatch with your Former-Human Friends! YES!!
GUY2SARG _requires_ DMGRAPH. I didn't include it in this ZIP because it
is only a batch file, so it hardly takes up any space. Besides, I am
only going to put it on infant2, and I know DMGRAPH is available there, so
you can get it.
There is a small 'bug' -- when you kill a Marine (besides splattering him)
he falls kind of quickly ; this is due to the fact that the Sargeants have
fewer death-sprites than the Player, so I had to sacrifice a couple pics,
but it is still fun as hell.
GUY2SARG will also change your sprites back to normal, all you have to do
is run it with anything as a parameter, it doesn't matter what.
Have fun with this thing, it took me quite a while to type it up, if you
look at the batch file you can see it is quite long -- yes, I am an idiot,
I didn't just use cut-n-paste then replace characters, I think that'd take
me longer actually considering how fast I type..
