Doom utilities


The Doom utilities are a set of various little tools created by id Software while working on Doom and other projects at the time. Not included are DoomBSP, DoomEd, and the Fuzzy Pumper Palette Shop.

The source code for these utilities was released to the DOSDoom team in 1998, as a simple zip of a directory containing them, with no specific documentation.

The most interesting of these are dcolors (generates PLAYPAL and COLORMAP, contains vestigial code from the alpha "hi-color" modes), multigen (generates the info.h and info.c files from a script), lumpy (converts certain resources to the formats used in Doom lumps), and wadlink (assembles a WAD file from individual lump files).
