About This File

The file WADGC.ZIP contains working beta source for my tools WADGC and WADLC, acronyms for WAD Graphics Compiler and WAD Level Compiler.

WADGC takes text files and PPM images as input and creates PWADs with graphic entries (sprites, wall patches, new textures and flats).

WADLC takes text files as input and creates PWADs with level maps. Node building is not included. IDBSP works great for that. This tool is somewhat less useful than WADGC. I like it, but if you want an interactive interface, this is nothing for you.

Since flats don't work from PWADs I also hacked a utility to add flats to the main IWAD file, called NEWFLATS. It replaces existing entries and/or adds new ones, creating a new IWAD file.

Together with DEU or some other tool for manipulating PWADS and concatenating them, WADGC and NEWFLATS provide a way of making completely new graphic environments for Doom. You need a good knowledge of the unofficial Doom specs to do anything useful, but it's quite workable. If you build a new IWAD file with DEU, you might even use DEU to build the levels. I think.

The tools are distributed as source code, written to compile under Unix. I have tested them only on a Sun workstation, but any Unix environment should do.

It might take some tweaking to get it to run on a PC. I wouldn't know, since I know nothing more about DOS and PC's than that the bytes are in the wrong order. :-)

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
