Archive Maintainer      : This wad contains graphics, music and
                          sounds, but it probably belongs more in the
                          /graphics directory than /combos.
                          There currently exists a windoom.exe source
                          port, but there are no windoom*.* files in
                          the Doom Archive.

Description             : Give Doom the look and sound of Windows 95.
                          Includes that inane Canyon midi, startup
                          and shutdown screens and sounds, and several
                          parody images - press F1 for Help, and Pause
                          for a special error message   ;)

                          This wad is for Doom, Ultimate Doom, and
                          Doom II but contains no levels - checkout
                          the blue rivets everywhere on E1M1 or MAP01.

                          Note to Wad Authors out there: WinDoom was
                          originally going to be a Partial Conversion
                          with surreal levels inside your computer,
                          but it's gathered enough dust now for me to
                          realize that it's not going to happen. So I
                          stripped out the textures and incomplete map
                          and released it in the form you now see it.
                          Feel free to use WinDoom.wad as a base to
                          finish this dream  :)

Additional Credits to   : Microsoft Corporation for driving me insane
                          to the point where I'm too scared to update
                          my operating system ..."better the devil you
                          know"   ;)

* Construction *

Base                    : Most of the graphics, sounds and music are
                          from the Windows95 operating system by
                          Microsoft Corporation. Several Windows95
                          parody images by unknown authors, obtained
                          from the Internet over a period of years.
Build Time              : about 4 hours (?)
Editor(s) used          : WinTex, DeuTex, PaintShop Pro, MicroAngelo,
                          CoolEdit, Midi2Mus
Known Bugs              : I never got around to fixing the Win95
                          clouds.bmp so that it tiles properly as a
                          sky texture  :(
May Not Run With...     : Any Microsoft operating system  ;)
