i'm asking to convert because I'm using doom builder for the job.
Just typing "Doom 32X WAD" into Google would've got you the forum announcement
for saxam's Doom
32X WAD converter and the subsequent discussion of limitations which would've answered at least some of your subsequent questions. For example, the thread says that the 32X Doom
engine unceremoniously defecates itself if too many enemies spawn on a map, so something built on flooding the player with nasties like the Nuts WAD is going to lock the game up, probably before it even finishes populating the stage.
Taking an "educated" guess, it's down to the amount of RAM made available for object management and not having any sanity checks to prevent overflow; with the former of those would also imply that features like the BFG or the Cyberdemon were omitted due to similar constraints, so adding them in wouldn't be viable.
I understand its a weird thing for me to do but cut me some slack, at least i'm not trying to fix up daikatana or port Deus ex. either help or don't.
You don't really get
forums, do you...? You posted an off topic thread
because the forum itself isn't sentient and doesn't know that you shouldn't be doing so, but when you're off topic
you don't get to complain when other people are as well
and the forum won't stop them posting for the same reason. Nobody has to cut you any slack, be helpful or adhere to your topic because you didn't choose the right place to post it.
okay, I quit. i'm just going to stick to graphics hacking. maybe something simple like river raid
isn't what i'd call "simple" personally... but if you have questions, don't forget to post to the right part of the forum.
