DMapEdit v4.0.6 (beta) - A map editor for Doom!
Change the maps in Doom/Doom2, or make a new one!
Requires a 386 or higher, a mouse, and Super VGA.
Welcome to DMapEdit v4.0! (beta version #6) Here is a list of all the

Note that you must also have the registered version of Doom or Doom II
in order to use this product. If you do not, this program will not
work, since information from either of these files are required for
DMapEdit's operation. Id software has also asked that all add-on
software for Doom not work with the shareware version of Doom.

All of the required files should be placed in the same directory, but
what directory you choose isn't important. You can put it in the same
directory with Doom, or you can put it in it's own directory somewhere
else. If you decide not to put it in the same directory with Doom, you
will need to tell DMapEdit where it can find the doom.wad file. This
can be done either with a command line switch:

dmapedit -ic:\doom For Doom
dmapedit -i2c:\doom2 For Doom II
dmapedit -ic:\doom -i2c:\doom2 If you have both Doom and Doom II

Or, you can specify the paths to Doom and Doom II within the
dmapedit.ini file. To do so, use a ASCII text editor (such as MS-DOS's
'edit' command) to change the following 2 lines in the dmapedit.ini file:

*doom path = c:\doom
*doom 2 path = c:\doom2

Change them so that they point to the proper directories (or the IWAD
file itself, if you wish), and remove the '*' in front of the Doom's you
have. This '*' in front makes it a comment, which is skipped. So,
removing them will allow these settings to be used by DMapEdit. You are
also free to change any other setting within this file to your taste.

That is the only setup requirement. It should work fine after this. You
may want to run the demo to learn more about DMapEdit's features, how to
use them, etc. To run the demo, just type 'demo'. Enjoy!
