RPG Doom (version 2)
Description
I could never understand why the Doom Marine fires his rocket launcher from between his legs. Perhaps in a masochistic way he enjoys the recoil. Anyway, this graphics-only wad is a replacement for Doom/Doom2's rocket launcher and you carry it on your shoulder like any sensible marine.

* What's new to this version? *

Mods made by Sparky of KISS Software:
(the original distribution contained 19 files, was only for Doom1,
it modified your doom.wad, and it contained several aesthetic bugs).

- converted the Dmgraph patch to wad format for use with ANY version
  of Doom or Doom II.
- reduced the size of the sprites by cropping the transparent areas.
- fixed the vertical and horizontal sprite offsets for both the weapon
  and ammo.
- edited out the aiming dot because it didn't align with the point
  of impact, and besides, most source ports provide their own
  crosshair.
- cropped the barrel from the brighter, firing frames to prevent a
  vertical line from appearing between the normal and fullbright
  sprites.
- added a slightly more detailed text file.

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

* Installation *

Play with Regular Doom/Doom2:
a) add the extra sprites to rpgv2.wad using a program such as DeuSF,
   WinTex, NWT, etc.   For example:   deusf -as rpgv2.wad
b) run the game with:  doom -file rpgv2.wad
                    or doom2 -file rpgv2.wad

Play with a Doom Source Port:
A much better option is to use a Doom Source Port that can import
pwads containing sprite graphics; such as: Boom, PrBoom, MBF, SMMU,
PrjDoom, Vavoom, ZDoom, Legacy, Edge, etc.  Patching is not required,
just use the wad as-is.  For example:   boom -file rpgv2

                             RPG DOOM v1.0

RPG DOOM replaces all rockets in DOOM with RPGs and puts the RPG 
on your shoulder.  It was produced using DMGRAPH, Windows Paintbrush,
and Graphics Workshop!

To install RPG DOOM simply unzip using pkunzip RPG.ZIP to a "rpg"
dirctory in DOOM, then copy RPG.BAT and UNRPG.BAT files to the DOOM
directory then run it by typing "RPG". RPG DOOM will the install
itself and then all rockets in DOOM will become RPGs. RPG DOOM is
produced by:     Mike Davidsen-Graphics
                 Josh Herndon-Text & Bug Killer
                 Bill Tucker-Moral Support & Inspiration

Special thanks to David Biggs for giving us a base to work off of.

If you have any suggestions for future weapons
e-mail Josh Herndon at:   jherndon@vt.edu

Thanks for playing RPG.


I forgot to mention that DMGRAPH is required to run RPG DOOM.
It can be found at:      infant2.sphs.indiana.edu
Sorry about the inconvenience.
