Description : Updated to the previous version of Bubblegum Crisis
: DOOM (version 1.1). Changes are:
: Version 1.1 had all resources betweeen the S_START
: and S_END Lumps, which caused ZDOOM to think they
: were Sprites. I fixed it so that any data including
: face graphics, title screen graphics, musics, and
: sounds are not where the sprites are.
: Some Sprites were putted in as Alpha DOOM sprites,
: which made it unviewable in Wintex, my preferred
: editor for WADs. Using Wintex, I extracted all the
: resources of the WAD and then modified the BG-2000
: Eliminator hand, so it's no longer blue.
: removed any wasted space with NWT, which I only use
: for cleaning up Wasted space in WADs.
: Fixed Dehacked patch text strings. DEHACKED lump
: is in WAD file so no one has to use the -deh
: parameter if you use ZDOOM, MBF, SMMU, or any other
: Source port with Dehacked in wad Support.
: Added new DSPDIEHI Sound, using the DSPLDETH and
: a ROTT Sound as a Basis (ROTT Sound is "YOU SUCK!")
: Tested with some TCs like HACX, Ghostbusters DOOM 2,
: Army of Darkness, etc. Don't try to run this patch
: with Batman DOOM, otherwise it causes troubles with
: the TC by ACE Team Software. Here are the results:
: Batman DOOM: messes it up
: HACX: Works superbly.
: Army of Darkness: Works fine, but no Palm Blast.
: Ghostbusters DOOM 2: Uses sprites from other
: Weapons, so they are mixed up, but the patch works
: All TCs and PCs were not tested with this Patch.
: Used the DSBFG sound from Otakon DOOM, the one in
: the Bubblegum Crisis DOOM Patch v1.1 was too wimpy.
: Included one Screenshot from each TC I tested on
: to prove that the Bubblegum Crisis DOOM Patch will
: Work on those TCs.
: Plus many other Bug Fixes.
Additional Credits to : The people who did the Bubblegum Crisis DOOM patch,
: and the Guys who did Otakon DOOM.

Well, the release of the original Bubblegum Crisis Doom pwad by Aaron
and myself around five months ago was welcomed with many a compliment,
suggestion, and offer of help. But, the mails have ceased, and the professed
contributors have disappeared without a trace, some giving signs of their
leaving, some not. This left the potential for a BGCDOOM v1.1 or a possible
Total Conversion patch in the lurch so to speak, as Aaron is now completely
burned out on the whole Doom patch jazz, and we're both too bogged down with
classwork to even consider tackling another huge (and frivolous) project.
Enter Richard Liou. Suddenly, a message from him appears in my
mailbox. He says he's got a retooled version of our patch ready to go. I
sneak a copy from him, test it out, and lo and behold! It's better than
ours! Rich took Aaron's already respectable art and retouched bits and
pieces of it, while redrawing the rest. The overall effect is glossier,
more refined, and much more pleasing to look at. I'm not knocking Aaron's
painstakingly crafted (using a crap Windows art program) artwork, but Rich's
is simply better.
For those of you who have never heard of Bubblegum Crisis before, it
is a Japanese animation series (or anime) which can be best described as a
cross between The Terminator and Bladerunner. Priss, the character depicted
in our PWAD, is one of the "Knight Sabers", a team of female mercenaries
equipped with futuristic "hard suits" who hunt Terminator-like creatures
called "Boomers". It's considered by many to be an anime classic, and is
definitely worth checking out.
Here's a rundown of the things altered by BGCDOOM v1.1:
* Graphics (specifically those of the weapons and character portrait)
replaced with Bubblegum Crisis-specific stuff.
* Around two dozen new sounds.
* A dehacked patch which changes a few attributes of the game.
Changes to BGCDOOM since 1.0:
* Everything except for the fist graphics has been totally retouched/
redrawn! Everything looks much glossier, darker, and more realistic.
* Several new sounds, most of which are enemy wakeup/death sounds.
* New title screen! Grainy still replaced with hand-drawn picture.
* Music! Play the first few levels of Doom 2 with a midi version of
"Mad Machine" playing in the background.
* Doom 2 compatability. Many people reported an annoying super-shotgun
bug in the original patch, something which has been fixed for v1.1.
* New weapon: The Double-Bolt Cannon (replaces the you-know-what).
* Priss's mug is completely redrawn, detail level is comparable to
that of the original Doomguy.
* A few niggling little flaws in the PWAD are fixed. Happy now, Mr.
AnimeDoom WWW page-guy? :)
