Description: The file dehacker.zip contains the article "Hacking the DOOM.EXE file". It will form the basis for a new chapter in the forthcoming 1.4 doom specs. Also included are 5 simple Qbasic programs to extract text lists of stuff talked about in the article. Some neat things can be done by modifying the EXE file, including making any thing have the same "inviso" property that spectres have, making any monster "float" like cacodemons, making cacodemons "shoot" lost souls instead of lightning-balls (sort of...make your own pain elemental! Don't wait for Doom II).

There's the potential for a skilled programmer with time and vision to make a "Doom customization kit" so that everyone can enjoy the possiblities.

All the info is based on the registered 1.2 version, and will be updated when 1.4 comes out. Also, please note that those without experience as hackers will probably just be confused by this material.
