- BFG blast/Rocket Launcher shot are spliced
together; this is not a bug, I liked it that way!

replacements? -See the Weapon.wri - It's tricky,
'cause ID screwed up the IWAD and made duplicate
entries for the Episode 1 music & some sounds
- If the automatic weapons seem to "dance" or
"jerk" - they're supposed to, they're automatic
weapons; they all jump around!

Other: I hand a lot of these out on street corners.
I really fell in love with DooM, 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 DooM
accepted & 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...
