*Playing Instructions*

Load it up with any wad you like and type 'puke 852 xx' to turn it on (xx = interval in seconds), 
and 'puke 852' to turn it off. You'll get a visual timer that counts down to the next autosave, 
along with a 10 second warning. (which is useful in larger maps as it can create a lag spike)

* Play Information *

Game Version Required  : Doom/Doom 2/Heretic/Hexen/Strife, running with ZDoom/GZDoom 
 (not sure which version, but any from the past year or so will do).
 It will work with any pwad too, including vanilla format.
