I have two questions to ask.

i have the gzdoom source port and i am needing some help.
when the game loads, the title displayed is "DOOM 2: Hell on Earth". I am making my own totally different game type. How can you actually change the title?

2))
How do you color different sectors in my level or add some colored lighting?

The title depends on the IWAD that is loaded. There are a numbers of IWADs that are recognized. You cannot add more since it's hardcoded.

Since "DOOM 2: Hell on Earth" is hardcode, you could change the actual title image.

To change that image is quite simple.
In a graphics program construct the image which is to become the TITLEPIC and save it as TITLEPIC.png. Usually the size is 320 by 200.
Then, load your map into SLumpED, click on the icon 'New Lump from File' and select TITLEPIC.png.
Something like this http://i39.tinypic.com/fdhd9w.png

Gez has covered the colouring aspect with the links.

But for me to colour the sectors, you would have to send the map to me. :-)
