DeHackEd is capable of heavily restructuring the way Doom works. It
allows you to modify a number of data tables from the Doom exe file. Make
fireballs invisible, make missiles do 2000 points of damage, make demons
float! Give your struggling Marine with more ammo, change the cheats on
your friends, or edit the Frame data to create new looking items or extra-
fast shooting weapons. Save your changes in patch files to distribute to
your friends, or to the world. Create new types of deathmatches, with
plasma "mines" and super-fast wimpy rockets. Wad developers can modify
monster types to distribute with their levels... great possibilities!
Also, keep an eye out for Linux/SGI DHE! The current version is a port
of DeHackEd v2.3, but the author is hard at work on a port of DeHackEd v3.0.
Check the DEHACKED.HLP file, under Internet Resources for more information.
Several patch files have been included, including the ever popular super-
rapid-fire weapons patch. A complete list of patch files is included below.
If you think you're tough, I recommend trying the TURBO.DEH patch, and
seeing how good your reflexes REALLY are! Or, if you are a deathmatch
maniac (or just a sucker for single-player pain), load up the DMARMY2.DEH
patch. It's specifically designed so that you have a hard time guessing
who is a human and who is undead! Highly recommended!
