Notes by the uploader : This add-on came originally with an installation
program, that got lost during it's way to me. But
that doesn't matter. It's still nicely playable.
Like a lot of other WAD makers, the creators of
TEMPLE2.WAD have used the status bar from
INVADE1.WAD by Andy Chen and Claude Martins.
But they missed to include the STARMS -graphic,
so the status bar was messed up in single player
mode. Because of that, i included the missing
graphic in starms.wad. Look at the play
instructions, to see how to use that.
The DeHackEd patch, that comes with this WAD, was
created with DeHackEd v. 2.2 and (apparently)
DooM2 v. 1.666. Because that binary patch was not
usable with modern source ports, i converted it
to the modern text-based format. It can now be
used with DooM2 v. 1.9 and dehacked 3.1 and also
with source-ports, that support the use of
deh-patches via the -deh parameter.
The original binary deh-patch is included in
