Misc. Author Info : I have a site at www.drat.cjb.net
Other Files By Author : Ps2 Barrel (ps2barrl.zip) graphics patch
Description : Replaces the Icon of Sin with Bill Gates' severed head.
Also changes several graphics used in Map 30. In addition there
are three new alternate alert sounds for the Icon. This is
version 1.1, as I have now added the dehacked patch into bgates.wad,
so ZDoom users can just load the wad and ZDoom will load the patch automatically.
Thanks to : Bill Gates for being such a downright git
Id Software for creating DooM
www.ihatebillgates.com for the pics of the evil geek lord himself
Serge Smirnov for Cleanwad
Olivier Montanuy for Wintex
Star Wars and Star Trek for inspiration for two of the voice samples.
* Play Information *
Advanced engine required: ZDoom, or any other source port capable of loading sprites from a pwad.
Get ZDoom from zdoom.notgod.com
Map # : Designed for original DooM II's Map 30
Single Player : Yes
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes, untested
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, untested
Difficulty Settings : N/A
New Sounds : Yes
New Graphics : Yes
Dehacked/BEX Patch : Yes. Replaces story text at end of game. A tiny bit of it is taken
from the DooM I end story.

Usage : Load bgates.wad and ONE of the three other wad files (640k.wad,
futile.wad and dorkside.wad), and bgates.deh. Then play Map 30.
There is a copy of the dehacked patch in bgates.wad, so if you are
using a source port that can load dehacked patches from wads
(such as ZDooM) you don't need to load the DEH file.
* Construction *
Base : Images from www.ihatebillgates.com, modified Id graphics, some
original stuff (the disk drive).
Editor(s) used : Paint Shop Pro 5, Goldwave, Wintex 4.3 and Dehacked 3.0a.
Known Bugs : There are some graphical problems in Map30 with the new graphics,
but that is a symptom of the original level design.
Notes : The voice samples are by me. They have also been distorted.
They are somewhat crap, but hey, I'm no voice actor, and I only
had one recording of Bill Gates to base my impressions on.
Oh and don't get me wrong, I like Microsoft software, but
I hate Bill Gates, and I am very annoyed about some features
that aren't in Windows.
