* General Information *
The WAD has been tested to work with Legacy (v1.30 and newer ones), ZDooM
The WAD file that has served as a guide is called 'Boomedit.Wad'. References
of the new enhances and functions can be found at the 'Boomref.Txt' file.
The utility that I have used to create the lumps is 'Swantbls.Exe'; also to
embed the midi file I have used 'Musput.Exe' both from Jim Flynn.
There is included the original DATA file for any purpose. Also I have included
a HINTBOOK so you won't have any trouble during your tour around FERN (check
out the 'Element.Zip' file).
