* Play Information *

Game                    : Doom II  v1.9

Engine                  : This wad requires a Doom Source Port with
                          mouse-look & support for tall sky textures.
                          Tested okay with:
                            ZDoom v1.22     Legacy v1.31
                            JDoom v0.81     Vavoom v1.6

Map #                   : Any - this is a graphics-only wad
Single Player           : Yes -   "     "     "     "    "
Cooperative 2-4 Player  : Yes -   "     "     "     "    "
Deathmatch 2-4 Player   : Yes -   "     "     "     "    "
Difficulty Settings     : Not applicable


* Construction *

Base                    : the banner image from the NewDoom web site.
Build Time              : Maybe 6 hours for both the Doom and Doom2
                          versions - it took several attempts to get
                          it looking okay, and of course getting and
                          editing the screen shots takes time.
Editor(s) used          : Paint Shop Pro, WinTex, DeuTex, and NWT.
Known Bugs              : Vavoom doesn't use the F1 key to view the
                          Help screen - select it from the main menu.

This wad will not work with:
  'Plain Vanilla' Doom or Ultimate Doom - just displays a red sky
               (the top part of the tall sky).
  Edge v1.24 - this port has a mouse-look feature and the option to
               stretch the sky texture, but this version is still
               buggy with tall textures.
  SMMU v3.21 - this port also has a mouse look feature, but it does
               not support tall skies.
  Any source port which does not have mouse-look and tall skies;
               such as:  Boom, PrBoom, MBF, DosDoom, PrjDoom, etc.
