changing episode names

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change the episode names in Doom? I mean like "Knee-Deep in the Dead" for example. When I want to edit it, it keeps going to Paint. Is there a program that can do this? Thank you.

Ok, first say what editor you are using! Its really annoying when you dont state the editor or exactly what you are editing! Judging by what you said, I am assuming you are using wintex and are editing the graphic that says the edpisode name. Edit the wintex.ini to show the location of your graphics editing program, like Paint Shop Pro. Or you could extract the file with an editor such as XWE, edit it, then put it in your new wad.

Yep - save the graphic to a file (using Wintex), edit that file with whatever program you want to use, then load it up into your wad. (go to 'Guru only' then 'New entry', call it M_EPI1 - this is the name of the "Knee-Deep in the Dead" graphic - and then load your new graphic into that entry)

Hmm. sounds like you think its where you type what you want (i.e. change "knee deep in the dead" to "~") and it changes...

Thats not so, its not actually just typing, its all graphics (you have to draw the letters... hey how do you think fonts are made for comouters?), i dont know if you undersand that... but if you do, good, took me a while to get that too... hehe.

Sorry if this sounds stupid, or offencive, i am not trying to be like that. just mearly trying to help you if you are confused about it this way.

Edit: Oh and yes, refering to waht has been said, you have to then insert it in the wad and tell the engine what entry to replace... (yeah you gota replace the old graphic, stupid, i know.)

If your making it for jDoom only then you can just type it in. You can use different fonts, colours etc aswell.

You can do it with a small wad file. (Keep in mind this is only for Zdoom, otherwise you'll need to do what the others said)

Open up a new one using XWE or whatever. And then make a new entry called MAPINFO. For editing the Knee Deep in the dead, just put only this in the MAPINFO lump:

episode e1m1
name "Knee-deep in the dead"
And it will automatically make the graphic for it as long as you use the mapinfo lump.

Remember, this is zdoom only. ;) Otherwise, it's editing graphics time.
