Description             : 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.
Additional Credits to   : The Cookie Monster, for Inkworks (sorry I couldn't send you
: a postcard!).
