The Maltese Falcon - a movie that was part of the "film noir" revolution of the late 40's and early 50's. Film noir was usually a movie that was filmed in black and white, with small-time staff and actors, and usually had dark and moody environments. Now, experience that in your Doom game. This WAD contains modified PLAYPAL and COLORMAP lumps that make it play in pure black and white. I left in the usual damage flash, so this is Deathmatch Safe.
