I know .wads (doom) but i don't have any idea what i'm supposed to do with these things. Do i just have to put them in the same folder as spear? Do I have to beat the demo levels to get to the custom ones?

If you have the WAD file I think you do, you'll have to use the DOS version of Doom 2 to run the file.

I think he's talking about some levels he got for use with Spear.
Sounds like you've got the demo version of Spear. You need the full version to use custom levels.

tricob- this is a spear of destiny forum- SPEAR OF DESTINY- I'm not that dumb to post doom stuff in a SOD forum. i said i knew how to use .wad files and i was asking if these files are like those. if it helps they are .map files. For starters, what is a .MAP file? it isnt compatible with any program i have, not even notepad. are .map files levels? literally maps (like just overhead projections of the level)? With the little the readme says it did say it works with the demo.

If the file size is exactly 16.0Kb then they're most likely Mapedit maps. If they're for the Spear demo then Mapedit 7.2 will be needed to read them into the set.

Mapedit 7.2 is the only version that works with the Spear demo and it is at http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~brlowe/utilities.htm

Are you trying to use .wad files with SOD? They won't work with SOD. SOD uses .sod files and its demo uses .sdm files

I didn't. There was a WAD file made for Doom 2 that was a reproduction of all the SOD levels, and I thought that he was confused by the name of the WAD file, that's all. But I know better now.

And the answer is ...

The only catch is that it's for the DOS version of Doom 2.

maybe if i run doom95 in dos mode it would work? or will it play anyway? It should...right? Is there some sort of converter?

O and this has been buggin me. I've been to this site before, and seen the screenshots, do you get doom weapons too? Or just 1 and 4. I can't imagine sod with a shotgun or a rocket launcher...well, maybe it would be kinda cool. O and Why do they have a cueue? is it that amazingly popluar that they have a waiting list?

Umm, you can just play it with a port, you know. BOOM is known to work quite well, and I haven't had any problems with ZDoom, either.

never mind. I figured it out, the restoration is quite good... except for two things
1. The machine gun is not supposed to be as powerful as the chain gun
2. no music Not Happy

If you have WinXP, you can get music by running VDM Sound.

VDM stands for vDoom right? What is VDoom? Just a converter or like the whole DOOM2 thing minus the wads?

VDM Sound relates to emulation of Adlib audio in DOS-based games, not just Doom, but Wolfenstein, Commander Keen, and so on.

IIRC, the Adlib part is called "MPU-401 modulation". But I can't remember names and numbers very well. Neutral

What is Adlib? I see that a lot. is it just some sort of sound system, or does it mean exactly what it is? I don't have the faintest idea what you said in that last sentence, i'd appreciate it if you just told me exactly what i had to do. I don't know dos that well, I just know simple commands and stuff.
