--- aaliens_rc3-zdaemon1.wad (2016-05-29)


This wad is aaliens_rc3.wad modified to be compatible with ZDaemon. Neither maps
(except a node rebuild) nor assets have been modified. This wad still works ok
in the originally intended ports, but if you do not need to play in ZDaemon, it
is highly recommended you get the original WAD from the address below.

https://www.doomworld.com/vb/wads-mods/87784-ancient-aliens-a-megawad-for-boom/


CHANGES:

1) Nodes of all maps have been rebuilt using ZDBSP ('zdbsp -R') so that they are
   not in the extended format and ZDaemon can load them. Since none of the maps
   contains more than 32767 linedefs, extended nodes were unnecessary in this
   regard; but the smaller precision of standard nodes can lead to some slime
   trails appearing.

2) MAPINFO has been renamed to ZMAPINFO and a MAPINFO lump using the old ZDoom
   MAPINFO format was put in it's place. This allows the MAPINFO to be parsed
   in ZDaemon while ZDoom will still load the full MAPINFO in the new format
   from the ZMAPINFO lump.
   
3) Dehacked frames 45 and 46 remapped to 720 and 721 respectively to avoid what
   probably is a ZDaemon bug or a DEHSUPP issue which causes demons to explode
   upon death when TNS dehacked is also loaded. Original DEHACKED lump kept in
   the wad as _DEHACKE.

                          enigmatic origins of human civilization...

                          is out there.

===========================================================================

Port Differences        : ZDoom-based ports and Eternity use MAPINFO for
                          episode selection and story screens.
                          
                          Additionally, in Zdoom-based ports and Eternity,
                          ACS is used to play sound effects occasionally.
                          This is way more cool than it sounds.
