Review : This tool converts DooM and DooM2 wads to
It's probably most interesting for people with
technical or historical interests and nostalgia
obsessions, like me :).
It has been created in 1995, so, if you use it,
you should maybe better prefer to try it with
plain vanilla WADs. Of course, you can try it,
but don't expect perfect results from using this
on a nowadays wad, created for zdoom or other
Primary purpose : No levels included

You might need to do some additinal editig with a

definitely a good idea. Another very good idea is
to read and understand dm1toht1.doc completely.
