I really fell in love with DooM and DooM II, and when Heretic came out,
I bought that, too. But I was really disappointed in the Heretic graphics
(weapons) - I don't really like sword & sorcery. So I determined to port the
Doom weapons graphics to Heretic. When I read about the Marines playing DooM
in PC Gamer (plug), I had a friend download MARINE1.WAD for me, and started
playing around with the sprites. I used NWT, but for some reason (me?) I
couldn't get NWT to store a complete weapons sprite without giving a
"shareware version detected" error message & dos dump-out. (But Heretic
accepted it & played it). So I used NWT for importing & exporting and
offsets, mostly - and viewing. Then I went to DeuTex for WAD formation. Then
I went to DeuSF and appended everything to the IWAD, and finally got it all
to run. It's kind of a Rube Goldberg way to make a DHE/Sprites/Sounds PWAD,
but if it works, hey, why not? I really wish Olivier Montanuy would revive
DeuTex and not WinTex - I really like the dos command line over Windows.
