Doom and Alien icons, and a Windows PIF file for running Doom 1.2
Provided in this ZIP archive is the PIF file I use for running Doom under Windows.
I have found that, for my system, running unders Windows cures the PS/2 mouse freaking
experienced with this version. No promises for anyone else, but you may want to give
it a go :)
Having a little spare time I recently created some icons for fronting either normal
Doom or the Aliens variant. They are compiled into a DLL for convenience. The normal
Doom icon is a 16 colour version of the game title page. For this reason you may have to squint a little to recognise it :) There are several Alien icons, variations on 2 or three themes.
These icons have been compiled into a DLL using Borland 4.0 and Resource Workshop.
If pressed I will add to this archive if people send me icons they create for any WADS. You can create a program item with arguments for loading your wads (refer to your Windows manual), thus using Windows as a cheap(!) wad manager :)

1. Unzip the archive into your doom directory.
2. If you don't have one, create a Games group in the Program Manager (what! You don't have one already?!?) by selecting File|New... , clicking on Program Group and then OK. Type in the name of the group and select OK again.
3. With the Games group selected, choose File|New... from Program Manager. Select Program Item then OK. In the dialog box that pops up select Browse... and find the DOOM.PIF file in your Doom directory. Select OK when you have. Now select Change Icon... and find DOOM.DLL (also in your Doom directory!). Select an icon you like and then hit OK. Hit OK in the dialog box remaining on your screen and you're all done!.
