Simply bring up wintex (or whatever you use), select the DooM/DooM 2 iwad, save all the big fonts to a file, use paint to combine them all into one bitmap and there you go. An endless supply of episode/level titles.

(I think they look better than any normal font cos they're not all one colour. They also look right cos they're DooM fonts)

well, yes, you can do that with the mapinfo lump but I think he was refering to another port....

wait, what about stuff like y, z, or l?


what do you mean? They're all ok like the rest of the letters.

(the only ones that cause trouble are the numbers, cos they're of different height and colour)

wait a minute, how DO you make those level names anyway?


You create a 256-colour bitmap with the title on it, then you go to Wintex (or whatever you use) and create an entry called CWILV** (where ** is a number from 00-31 for the levels in DooM 2)

For Ultimate DooM, the entry is called WILV** (where ** ranges from 00-08, 10-18, 20-28 and 30-38 for the levels there)
Episode titles in Ultimate DooM are called M_EPI* (where * is 1-4)

wintex ses it is invalid size. What size should it be?


12 pixels high, and no more than 320 pixels wide (for level titles) or no more than 270 pixels wide (for DooM 1 episode titles)
