Possible to map for GBA Doom (II)?

Recommended Posts

I take my Gameboy Micro everywhere with me and I enjoy playing the Doom ports.

I would love to be able to play or create custom maps for either Doom or Doom II.

Is it remotely possible to create maps and inject them into a GBA ROM?

I know that both games use different engines so maybe there's some way to get one or the other 'hackable'?

From what I know, you can't ADD anything to a GBA ROM, but you can modify existing material. In theory, you might be able to replace the maps, but I am not sure if that is even possible. One guy found a way to change the blood color on the original DOOM GBA, and that's the only know mod for the two games I have heard of. If there is a way, I'd be gald to help you, as I have a copy of DOOM II GBA.

Doom II GBA uses the Southpaw engine, and Doom I GBA uses the Jaguar port as a base, so the limitations are similar to Doom version 1.2.

You can extract the wad from the ROM, but I don't know to modify it, but it is possible.

Kaiser used to have tools for doing this but I think he lost them all >_>


Ya he did lose them but you might be able to get them via google search

Thanks for replying guys. I've Googled around but can't find any living links (so far!).

I'll keep trying though. I've got a bee in my bonnet about getting some maps onto my GBA now.
