About This File

DMGRAPH will store graphics into or extract graphics from DOOM WAD and PWAD files, in GIF or PPM formats. Graphic format type is controlled by the filename suffix, or by using the '-T' option on the command line.

Patch WAD files (PWAD) can be edited the same as WAD files by using the '-f pwad' option on the command line; the PWAD will be created as needed. There are, however, some limitations. Four types of graphics are found in a WAD:

type 0: miscellaneous type 1: sprite type 2: wall texture type 3: floor texture

Only graphic types 0 and 2 can be put into a PWAD. Sprites and floor textures, if put into a PWAD, will either be ignored by DOOM, or cause it to abort.

To remove a graphic from the PWAD, use the '-r' option. For the PWAD to work correctly, the filename must end with .WAD.

Input graphics should have a resolution of 320x200 or less. To indicate transparent areas in the graphic, draw with Cyan (red:0, green:255, blue:255).

Placement of the graphic can be adjusted with the '-i' option. When a graphic is extracted, it's current insertion point is stored in the GIF or PPM file. Negative insertion points, used on some graphics, indicate an absolute coordinate from the top-left of the screen.

Some graphics are sensitive to size or placement. For example, TITLEPIC will generate a 'Bad V_DrawPatch' error if the insertion point isn't 0,0; STFGOD0 must be no larger than 31x31; etc.

Please be sure to have a backup copy of the original DOOM WAD data.

Some examples:

Extract SKY1 graphic in GIF format:

DMGRPAH SKY1 -e sky1.gif

Store SKY1 graphic in a PWAD:

DMGRAPH SKY1 -f graph.wad -s sky1.gif

      An odd wad in which you play a Hexen class while fighting Heretic monsters in Heretic-textured levels. Surprisingly, it works pretty well, and is an interesting change of pace from either game. It retains Hexen's hub design, although it's not at all puzzley, just a "go and collect 3 items and return to the hub" quest. It's very combat-focused (there's almost 400 enemies in the final level), but unlike some Heretic maps, it doesn't end up feeling like a slog. Perhaps Hexen's weapons are just more powerful than Corvus's. The level design is very good, besides a couple of sore spots (the cramped areas of the lava level, the metal maze in the final level). The boss, D'Sparil, is much easier to kill than he was in Heretic; he probably should've been modded to have a better chance against Hexen's warriors.

      A fun heavily modified tougher version of Doom 1's E1M6 dated back in April of 94(yes same month of origwad). Its starts a bit hectic but with so many shotgun guys and plenty of health throughout the map, its actually not that hard to go through. However like any 94 wad, it has typical misaligned textures, a few HOMs, and had to use noclip cheat to grab the last card key due to ceiling being too low to pass under. Despite its age and a few minor stuff, its a fun wad from 1994 and I would recommend to give it a try :)

      Excellent wad for Hexen fans. It stays true to the style/spirit of the original game while introducing new ideas. The level / hub design is interesting, the combat is well-balanced, texturing is well-done and well-aligned, and there are plenty of interesting scripted events. The wings are used in a very smart way - you're able reach many previously unreachable items and paths. The only thing I disliked was the "boss" of the final level. I won't spoil it, but it's quite disappointing.   Unfortunately there is a bug in The Castle Of Fluft - the flame mask switch is not set to "repeatable", so if you try to use it without the prerequisite mask, you won't be able to use it again when you do. If you encounter this bug, type "puke 10" to activate the script the mask normally would.

      This seems like a semi-hidden gem. The author's other WAD Crimson Canyon won a Cacoward, though I prefer this one.   It certainly lives up to its namesake. The textures are all Hell's green marble and blood, supplemented with custom textures including some modified Giger designs and some creepy sprites I recognize from Monolith's Blood. The map designs are seriously contorted. It's probably a divisive aspect of the set. In some levels the angular layouts wrap around themselves in a jagged mesh, creating devilish mazes with slightly obscure progression, and where fireballs can fly at you from different parts of the map. Other parts are darker and more claustrophobic. It's all a totally hostile atmosphere.   There are some common themes gameplay-wise but you'll know them by map 2. A big one is ammo constriction, especially on UV. Certain maps seem near unbeatable without finding key secrets.   This was actually one of the first WADs I completed a few years ago, and on revisiting it it feels very fresh. Like most memorable WADs, it rides on strong concepts and some devilish gameplay while targeting a distinctive theme.

      It almost looks as if what pestilence from hexen 2 would look like in this mod
