BlueGuy - Marine Graphics Patch
for DooM and DooM ][
Inspired by email@example.com who made redguy.zip
which contains the sprite gifs for the player1
sprite. (Note: I did not use any of the matterial
from redguy.zip, it gave me the idea for blueguy.wad.
Check out redguy.zip too, although it is a bit
outdated, the gifs look cool.)
blueguy.zip contains the files required
to make all four players in coop and deathmatch games
look the same. A completely fair matchup, of course,
you will not know which player you are up against while
you fight, but when a player gets fragged (s)he changes
color, so that you can see your handy work on the floor. :)
Note on Player1 Sprite:
The DooM engine changes the green color
in the PLAYER1 sprite to the other three
colors (INDIGO, BROWN, RED). If the green
colors in the sprite are changed, the DooM
engine will appear not to change the player
sprites, as long as green is NOT used in the
BLUEGUY.WAD has no green colors, so all four
players will appear blue, I think it looks
like all the players have 200% armor on. Some
other wad authors have added green colors
on the helmet or arm so that players may
know who they are fragging. I have not done this
because my goal was to completely even the playing
field for all players. We all know we would rather
be INDIGO than GREEN in a dark PWAD. :) In blueguy.wad
all the players look blue, until they are fragged, then
they appear in their "natural" (albeit dead) color.
I hope you like it.
