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. :-)

      EPIC journey through 11 completely different levels. Stunning visuals: from tiny details to grand architecture. These maps are challenging, but not impossible. Had to retreat to HMP on the two latest levels, though.   My favorite level is Felt (library). So many passage ways to explore.

      it should be obvious to those who are playing this that this is NOT another Doom 64 TC. it's recreating the levels of Doom 64 as Doom II levels, which is why you see other monsters and a few changes to layout as well.   i'm not gonna give this a good score though. but this may be because I just don't like Doom 64's levels in general. even when you cut out the atmosphere and enhance the gameplay and layout of the maps here there's still some bashful puzzles to solve and well, the levels are longer than they really are. my Doom 64 opinion of course.

      Overall is nice, but I'm not much into small maps crowded with monsters, other than that, looks like a decent megawad

      Sorry, but can't give more stars to this megawad, it gets really tiresome to start like 6 times the same map with a different door each time and the and the innecesary overstuff of ammo and guns just kill the fun of Doom being about managing your resources.  It can be some kind of fun opening a terminal in GZDoom and setting SV_fastWeapons to 2
