just a quick question - can you change the floor/ceiling colors just by modifying the .exe with a hex editor, or does the original source need to meodified and compiled?

Pretty sure modding the shareware version violates its license. Use the registered version.

There is a lot of modified shareware sets, the only game I can think of that's a shareware that people could mod outside of the registered game.

Executor is speaking of modifying the EXE itself, if I'm not mistaken. Hex-edit the EXE if you must, but you'll have no bugfixes if you do, so expect "Out Of Memory!" crashes among other things. As for the floor colors, it's all the same color in every level. You'll have to modify the source code itself to get more than one color selection throughout the levels.

Just because people have gotten away with it doesn't mean that it's permitted.

Arguably modding violates the EULA of most games, shareware or not. I think by this point you can pretty much do whatever the hell you want with it as long as you're not just distributing the original full game verbatim.

The way I see it, if Id didn't want you changing the EXE, they wouldn't have provided us all with the source code. Smile

The point is not the exe vs. data, it's that the shareware version should not be modified at all. Id Software didn't bother locking the shareware version down like they did in Doom or Quake because they did not foresee anyone modding the game (see the whole fiasco with the high score codes in 1.0 and 1.1 if you don't believe me), but they do not and never did approve of modifying the shareware game, because it reduces the incentive for users to buy the registered game.
