Description : This is sort of half-TC for Doom and Doom2. It has
new, ray-traced 3d graphics for all the monsters
that exist in Doom, plus a dehacked patch that makes
all the other monsters of Doom2.
I did this a long time ago (last year), but then
I didn't know how to make it work without merging
it to main wad... Anyway, this started as plain
graphics patch, so it doesn't make any exe hacking
on Doom1, and there's no new guns and stuff like
that. Also, I didn't make any new sounds.
MONSTERS.ZIP (included) contains 640*480 GIF images
of all the monsters.
Unzip to your Doom directory and install by typing
"POVDOOM" on command line.
Monster descriptions : (who is who)
**** MONSTERS FOR BOTH DOOMS ****
Player : How somebody can think of being cool without
sunglasses? Now I've fixed that.
Pistol guy : A green martian with a hair dryer-style gun.
Explode him with berserk and laugh!
Shotgunner : Another greeney... He has a real gun, and
again cool exploding death. :)
Imp : Umm, this is just another imp, but somewhat
Demon : This toy monster has no small parts that can
be swallowed. He swallows children, though.
Spectre : Same as demon, but invisible...
Lost Soul : This one has a sharp tongue...
Cacodemon : The evil voodoo gurus are here. And they know how
to cast fireball spells.
Baron of Hell: Who were the Barons of Jurassic Hell? Now they've
come here to eat you... Velociraptors!
Cyberdemon : This big thingy has a four-barrel bazooka, and
he kicks you off your shoes with his cyberfoot.
Spiderdemon : This time she's less brains and more gunmetal...
Suits better her behaviour. :)
**** MONSTERS IN DOOM2 ONLY ****
These are made from the ones mentioned above, just by changing
their colours... The Doom2-only monsters don't work without the
patched POVDOOM.EXE (Installation program makes it). I have also
made little changes on how they behave.
Chaingunner : He's actually a Red player with a chaingun...
Revenant : This kind of Gray velociraptor is extremely fast
and deadly... But fortunately somewhat weak.
Arachnotron : All the Green players who have died in Doom2,
have risen from their graves, and this time they
have plasma rifles!
Hell knight : A Brown raptor from the Jurassic... Weaker than
the green one (Baron).
Archvile : Same Gray raptor as Revenant. (Doesn't respawn
Mancubus : The little brother of the Cyber Demon, this buddy
has a bazooka. Wears Brown armours.
