* Play Information *
Game : Doom II v1.9
Engine : This wad requires a Doom Source Port with
mouse-look & support for tall sky textures.

JDoom v0.81 Vavoom v1.6
Map # : Any - this is a graphics-only wad
Single Player : Yes - " " " " "
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes - " " " " "
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes - " " " " "
Difficulty Settings : Not applicable
* Construction *
Base : the banner image from the NewDoom web site.
Build Time : Maybe 6 hours for both the Doom and Doom2
versions - it took several attempts to get
it looking okay, and of course getting and
editing the screen shots takes time.
Editor(s) used : Paint Shop Pro, WinTex, DeuTex, and NWT.
Known Bugs : Vavoom doesn't use the F1 key to view the
Help screen - select it from the main menu.
This wad will not work with:
'Plain Vanilla' Doom or Ultimate Doom - just displays a red sky
(the top part of the tall sky).
Edge v1.24 - this port has a mouse-look feature and the option to
stretch the sky texture, but this version is still
buggy with tall textures.
SMMU v3.21 - this port also has a mouse look feature, but it does
not support tall skies.
Any source port which does not have mouse-look and tall skies;
such as: Boom, PrBoom, MBF, DosDoom, PrjDoom, etc.
