WHAT IS CHGDSG 1.1?
CHanGeDSG allows you to modify your DOOM executive file
(normally DOOM.EXE or DOOM2.EXE) so that it will be using other
DSG files than DOOMSAV?.DSG.
This is very useful if you have several different PWADs or
EXE patches and you saved your games in PWAD maps. Normally,
DOOM will crash when loading a wrong savegame (requiring a
CHGDSG 1.1 will solve your problems: Just copy your
DOOM.EXE / DOOM2.EXE and modify the copy with CHGDSG! Every
copy will now use its own DSG files while DOOM.EXE / DOOM2.EXE
still loads the standard DOOMSAV?.DSG files. No more
confusion, no more crashing ... :-)
HOW TO USE CHGDSG 1.1?
First, unzip the CHGDSG 1.1 zip file (CHGDSG11.ZIP) into
your DOOM directory. If you don't do this it might not work!
Using CHGDSG 1.1 is pretty simple. You can either use command
line parameters or start CHGDSG without any parameters.
Without command line parameters:
1.) Start CHGDSG 1.1 by typing:
2.) Enter the name of your DOOM.EXE / DOOM2.EXE copy. CHGDSG
will automatically detect the game's version.
3.) Enter the new name for its savegames.
You may also use these command line parameters:
-f FILE Guess. The file name of your DOOM.EXE / DOOM2.EXE
-n NAME Yes, right, the new DSG name.
You may start CHGDSG with both parameters "-f FILE" and
"- n NAME" or just one of them. CHGDSG will detect the provided
parameter(s) and will ask you to enter the other one.
Examples: CHGDSG -f NEWDOOM.EXE -n newsavs
CHGDSG -f NEWDOOM.EXE
CHGDSG -n newsavs
- Added support for DOOM II v1.9 and Final DOOM (TNT & Plutonia)
- Rewrote the source code and improved the functions. (Helped
me to do that command line parameter stuff in this version!)
- CHGDSG 1.0 now supports the registered versions of DOOM 1.2,
1.666, 1.9 and Ultimate DOOM!
- Automatically detects the game's version.
- Reminds you of using a copy of DOOM.EXE / DOOM2.EXE if you
input "DOOM.EXE" or "DOOM2.EXE" by mistake. (Whoever needs
to be reminded!) :)
- Supports command line parameters.
- Some internal buggy stuff fixed.
- EMM386 HIGHSCAN bug fixed.
- DSG name input bug fixed. (When first having typed in a wrong
DSG name and then a correct one, CHGDSG 0.5 still wouldn't
- BIGGEST bug possible fixed: CHGDSG 0.9 didn't work with DOOM
1.666 registered! I'm terribly sorry!
- Support for DOOM 1.666 registered.
- First version, supporting DOOM 1.9 registered only.
