Re: Mac OS executable + DOS IWAD
:For Windows 2000, the superuser is "Administrator". Also, like XP, Windows 2000 does not support VXDs, so mouse support in Doom 95 will be broken. The original DOS executable works with -devparm and sound disabled.
:On a related note, wouldn't the full IWADs from a PC version of Doom need to be converted to Mac (big endian) before being usable in Mac OS? Your instructions on the page don't mention this. [[User:Bloodshedder|Bloodshedder]] 21:59, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
::That's because it turned out not to be necessary.  I put the Collector's Edition maps in, and they worked.
::(Except for Thy Flesh Consumed, which I couldn't find even when I used <tt>-warp</tt>.&nbsp; I suppose you could extract the maps with an editor and save them as levels 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, and 31 in Doom II.&nbsp; The exit at the end would still work correctly, I ''think'' &mdash; I've seen it done in some PWAD from 1994.)&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Ryan W|Ryan W]] 02:11, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
