====================================================================== Archive Maintainer : This is an old DMGRAPH/DMAUD patch converted to wad format, with a few minor additions for it to be used with either Doom or Doom2. Update to : homerdm2.zip (not in the idgames archive). Note, homerdm2.zip and homerd2b.zip are unrelated to the sound-only wad located at: ./idgames/themes/simpsons/homerdm3.zip Recommended location : ./idgames/themes/simpsons/homerd2b.zip Advanced engine needed : No Primary purpose : No levels included (this is a graphics/sound patch) ====================================================================== Title : HOMER'S DOOM (version 2b). I had to call it version 2b because there's already a homerdm3.zip in the archive :( Filename : homerd2b.wad Release date : December 2000 (although I released this wad conversion on local BBSs back in late 1996). Authors : Original version - Brad Version 2 Update - Sparky of KISS Software Email Address : <email removed> Description : A Partial Conversion for all versions of Doom/Doom2 based on The Simpsons TV show. Homer's Doom features: 2 new monsters, a new shotgun, new menu graphics and status bar (including Homer's face), and lots of new sounds from The Simpsons. The only changes I made from the original Dmgraph/Dmaud patch are: - fixed a few graphics faults and sprite offsets. - added some missing animation frames for the Imp and the exploding TVs. - added blank graphic patches for Doom's Episode1 intermission screen. - copied sky1 to rsky1 for use with Doom2. - copied wimap0 to interpic also for use with Doom2. - modified some of the main menu option graphics (load/save game, episode/skill selection, etc). Additional Credits to : In the previous text file from 1996 I thanked my fiance for her patience. She's now my wife, and I still thank her for her unending patience and love. ====================================================================== * What is included * New levels : None Sounds : Yes Music : No Graphics : Yes Dehacked/BEX Patch : No Demos : No Other : No Other files required : A utility to patch the sprites if used with 'Plain Vanilla' Doom or Doom II (see below). * Play Information * Game : Doom, Ultimate Doom, or Doom II Map # : Any - this is graphics/sound pwad Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes Deathmatch 2-4 Player : No Other game styles : No Difficulty Settings : Not applicable ====================================================================== Play with 'Plain Vanilla' Doom or Doom II: a) you will need to add the extra sprite graphics to homerd2b.wad using a program such as DeuSF, WinTex, NWT, etc. For example: deusf -as homerd2b.wad b) with the extra sprites patched, just load the wad normally: doom -file homerd2b.wad doom2 -file homerd2b.wad Play with a Source Port: A better option is to use a Doom Source Port that can import pwads containing sprite graphics such as: Boom, PrBoom, MBF, SMMU, PrjDoom, ZDoom, Legacy, etc. Patching is not required with these ports, just run the wad as-is. For example: boom -file homerd2b ====================================================================== * Construction * Base : homerdm2.zip by Brad (Dmgraph/Dmaud patch) Build Time : who knows? Editor(s) used : WinTex, DeuTex, NWT, Dmgraph, Dmaud, PSpro Known Bugs : Some of the items on the status bar look a bit offset from normal. * Copyright / Permissions * Authors MAY use the contents of this file as a base for modification or reuse.
