====================================================================== 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. Update to : Not applicable Advanced engine needed : No Primary purpose : No levels included ====================================================================== Title : Windows Doom Filename : windoom.wad Release date : December 2000 Author : Sparky of KISS Software Email Address : <email removed> Other Files By Author : too many to mention ;) Misc. Author Info : Electronics Engineer with a passion for Doom (and a love/hate relationship with Windows). 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" ;) ====================================================================== * What is included * New levels : None Sounds : Yes Music : Yes Graphics : Yes Dehacked/BEX Patch : No Demos : No Other : No Other files required : None * Play Information * Game : Doom / Ultimate Doom / Doom II Map # : Any (this is a graphics/sound/music wad) Single Player : Yes " Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes " Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes " Difficulty Settings : Not applicable * Construction * Base : Most of the graphics, sounds and music are from the Windows95 operating system by Microsoft Corporation.
