Easiest WAD Program

Recommended Posts

What would you say is the easiest program for making WADs? I am a beginner and am confused by the complexity of these programs. Will I just have to deal with it or is there hope for beginners like me?

If you mean map editors, then I'd say Doom Builder. It comes for free, it's very easy to use and there's a tutorial by Dr. Sleep which explains almost everything the editor can do. So if you read it completely, you'll know almost everything, although you'lll have to learn a few things on your though(like level designing). As you make more maps, you'll learn though.

ZETH... easiest to learn, quickest to work and very accurate. It has some outraging bugs, but saving your map a lot, and making backups from time to time, will keep your suicidal thoughts a few steps away.

Only thing is, that you'd have to use an external NodeBuilder, as ZETH doesn't come with one.

ZETH's major flaw is that it's for ZDoom only.

Oh, sorry... Silly me.
You're absolutely right Archon.

But so, there's DETH for vanilla Doom/Heretic/Hexen, that doesn't have some of ZETH's bugs.

I use WadAuthor, but it is a little outdated; so I would suggest Doom Builder, that I know is as easy as WadAuthor but much more powerful than this one!

I use the latest version of Deepsea for all my editing purposes. I personally find it very easy to use and it contains everything I need to edit my Doom, Doom2, Final Doom, Hexen and Heretic maps. Of course I'm sure someone on this forum will say that you to "pay" for Deepsea, which is very true. For me, it's worth every penny being constantly updated is a plus. DoomBuilder is a great editor and I have no complaints with it, I just prefer Deepsea.
