---------------------------------- BlueGuy - Marine Graphics Patch for DooM and DooM ][ ---------------------------------- Author: Paul Simpson <email removed> 01/22/95 About: Inspired by <email removed> who made redguy.zip which contains the sprite gifs for the player1 sprite. (Note: I did not use any of the matterial from redguy.zip, it gave me the idea for blueguy.wad. Check out redguy.zip too, although it is a bit outdated, the gifs look cool.) blueguy.zip contains the files required to make all four players in coop and deathmatch games look the same. A completely fair matchup, of course, you will not know which player you are up against while you fight, but when a player gets fragged (s)he changes color, so that you can see your handy work on the floor. :) Note on Player1 Sprite: The DooM engine changes the green color in the PLAYER1 sprite to the other three colors (INDIGO, BROWN, RED). If the green colors in the sprite are changed, the DooM engine will appear not to change the player sprites, as long as green is NOT used in the sprite. BLUEGUY.WAD has no green colors, so all four players will appear blue, I think it looks like all the players have 200% armor on. Some other wad authors have added green colors on the helmet or arm so that players may know who they are fragging. I have not done this because my goal was to completely even the playing field for all players. We all know we would rather be INDIGO than GREEN in a dark PWAD. :) In blueguy.wad all the players look blue, until they are fragged, then they appear in their "natural" (albeit dead) color. I hope you like it. Files Included: DEUSF.EXE - Olivier Montanuy's program to make small Sprite/Flat wads useful. BLUEGUY.WAD - Contains the PLAYER1 sprite. BLUEGUY.TXT - This file.
