The author holds no responsibility for any loss or damage caused by the use
of DOOMLaunch. I have tested this version thoroughly and it shouldn't
cause any problems. Of course I know the program and know what it's
supposed to do, and what it isn't, and I have tried to make it crash proof
and hopefully foolproof. Under all circumstances, you use this program AT
YOUR OWN RISK! Use and enjoy!
