-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= WAD VERSION 1.0 =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= By Greg Engle =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
The first thing you should do is copy the zip file to the
doom2 directory! Well and then unzip it of course and your ready
to run WAD. Well I do not have that much error checking in this
program so if the file WADD.OVL is not in the same directory as
WAD.EXE than their will be an error and WAD will terminate!!!
so please check your work!, Version 1.2 has a lot more error
checking which will be out about Christmas Time 1994 I have alot
of it done already but some extra stuff like Single player mode!
Expert mode that is for people that are experts at dos and like
command line swiches, and so they type WAD /E and all the popup
windows and extra graphics are disabled!, and so it's faster,
Notice that Expert mode does not have error checking in it!
A better load pwad feature that does not prompt you for the path
it is a WINDOWS still search directory and you select a .wad file
to play in DOOM2. Maybe I'll put .ZIP support in WAD 1.2 so you can
unzip a .wad file to play and then when doom2 quits it will delete
it!!, well I need to now what people want!, and It's going to be the
same price 5 dollors + 3 dollors shipping!, WELL LOOK FOR THE FILE
WAD_12.ZIP all over BBS and maybe the internet I'm thinking about
that too so just look for it!
Here it is the ultimate Doom ][ shell for deathmatch games!
and at this time the only one!! That I now of!! Well, one day
I was sitting down with waded the most powerful Doom ][ level
editior, and was makeing a map for Doom ][ and I finished it
when I asked one of my many friends to help me try it out over
deathmatch (modem of course) and well let's just say that this
person is not as literite to computer as I am. And that is how
I thought to make this program. I thought that many people can
use a program that can do deathmatch games and load extra pwads
into Doom ][ AND AT A SMALL PRICE!!!
Okay now the legal stuff. This program is SHAREWARE.
Shareware means that you can take a look and try a program
before you buy it!!, and I fully believe in SHAREWARE so please
This program is copyrighted software and is NOT FREE! BUT
IS AT A SMALL PRICE please read the share.doc to find out how
much this program costs it's around 5 bucks!!
okay when you type "WAD" at the command prompt you goto a
screen that says UNREGISTERED DELAY and your probably thinking
what the! Yep you are right I can't trust american people
about buying this software so I have to put a delay on it NOT
much just a 29 sec delay to be exact! And that delay will be
gone once you register this program! okay after that delay
thing it will come up to a lotus 1-2-3 style menu and I set it
up so that it will be an ease to run it!!, okay the first thing
you need to do is tell WAD what map you want to run E.G. map 01
(the best deathmatch map) after you tell WAD THAT you need to
tell WAD what comport you are runing E.G Com 4, and to answer
or dial a phone number IF you dial you will be prompted for a
phone number to dial. These are required to run WAD in
deathmatch mode but there is some extra stuff to like:
a load wad feature that LOADS PWADS INTO DOOM ][ so you can
play doom ][ with extra pwads over modem! (notice that the
select map feature is the same as if you are not loading a
extra pwad SO MAKE SURE THAT YOU NOW WHAT THE MAP NUMBER IS FOR
THE EXTRA PWAD BEFORE RUNING DOOM ][. And the last extra
feature is the shell to dos that is very helpful do to , the fact
you can shell to dos real quick and see were EXTRA PWADS ARE OR
WHAT EVER and this feature is real good for unregistered users
due to the fact that their is no delay when you shell to dos!
OKAY OKAY OKAY!!!!, This .DOC is almost finished just one
more thing about future updates. I plan to have a PHONEBOOK
FEATURE, A SINGLE PLAYER MODE!, LOAD MULTIPLE PWADS!, HAVE A
.CFG SO YOU CAN DEFINE IT FOR YOUR OWN COLORS, and stuff like
that!! This may not seam like much, THAT'S why I need your
help!! If you could mail, call or what ever about any BUG'S or
future update that you think that I should include into my
