    Portable Map Format

    The web site has step by step instructions on building the v5 nodes and PDF files.

    Portable Doom Format

    Nice. But the platform is "Any" rather than Windows.

    Portable Doom Format

    I just wrote a very detailed step-by-step guide to using Wad2PDF. It's available on project web site.

    Wad to Pee Dee Eff

    I've been thinking about it. Due to the way PDF works I'd probably have to fake it by drawing black partially transparent blobs on top of the subsectors. It is either quite simple or maddeningly hard, depending on the drawing model. We'll see. BTW the next version will most likely support Strife. (which should be good news for all the five people in the world who have played Strife)

    Wad to Pee Dee Eff

    The readme.txt file has instructions. Basically you have to run it (and glbsp) with the command line interpreter. So why is there not a fancy GUI thingamajig you ask? Because I use Windows very little and program on it even less. If someone wants to do a launcher for Wad2PDF, I (and many users) would be most pleased.

    WAD2PDF Updates

    My dream use would be that they use the printouts on the Doom movie on some bulletin boards or wall posters. Not that I'm expecting it to happen, of course. But it would be really cool if it did.

    WAD2PDF Updates

    Acrobat Reader can export PDFs to image files. I think. At the very least you can take screengrabs. It already does. I just tried Daedalus without any problems. It just does not support scaled flats.

    Wad2PDF

    I seem to recall that there is a program that converts Python scripts to exes. However using the current proggie takes two steps: 1. Install Python 2. Run script With a stand alone exe you'd basically have to do step 2 in an almost identical way. The exe conversion would not save much work, really.

    Wad2PDF

    There are several reasons. The "real" reason is that I wanted to learn how PDF files work. Anyway, here are some other reasons: - PDF is ubiquitous - PDF can draw polygons filled with textures easily - PDF is resolution independent (Want to print E1M1 on a 10 meters by 10 meters billboard? No prob.) - One PDF file can hold several levels - Converting PDF to image files is quite simple (and way more efficient than the other way around)

    That's my goal in life.

    Wad2PDF

    Hi I have written a tool called Wad2PDF that converts Doom levels to PDF files. It draws a bird's eye view of every level, with the floors properly texturized and items drawn with their graphics. Further info and screenshot goodness can be found here.

    Linux WAD editor

    You can run some of the Windows tools with Wine. Wintex, WinDEU and DeepSea work relatively well. WadAuthor works, but you have to disable thing pixmaps or it'll crash.

    Doom 3 Linux Binaries Released

    That is because those programs grab the sound card all to themselves. OSS (and probably ALSA too) support only one user at the time. There should be a user space sound daemon like esd or arts that does the mixing. How this should be done has not been stardardised yet.

    Doom 3 Linux Binaries Released

    ALSA has an OSS compatibility thingie. Have you tried using that?
