  2. RUNNING SIGIL
  3. Instructions for Windows and Mac OS
  4. --------------------------------------------------------------------
  5.  
  6. Hello, and welcome to SIGIL, the unofficial episode 5 of the game DOOM.
  7.  
  8. SIGIL comes with these files:
  9.  
  10. SIGIL.txt
  11. SIGIL.wad
  12. SIGIL_COMPAT.wad
  13.  
  14. If you paid for the fan boxes (Beast Box or Big Box) then you also have these:
  15.  
  16. SIGIL_SHREDS.wad
  17. SIGIL_SHREDS_COMPAT.wad
  18.  
  19. You need a version of DOOM to run SIGIL. If you are NOT experienced with the various
  20. flavors of DOOM then you will not need to use the SIGIL_COMPAT.wad and
  21. SIGIL_SHREDS_COMPAT.wad files.
  22.  
  23. To play SIGIL, you need the DOOM.WAD file from the original DOOM or from
  24. The Ultimate DOOM. If one of these are installed, please note their location.
  25. You can get The Ultimate DOOM from Steam or GOG.com.
  26.  
  27. --------------------------------------------------------------------
  28.  
  29. INSTALLING GZDOOM
  30.  
  31. Download GZDoom from https://zdoom.org. Scroll to the bottom
  32. of the page and click "Get ZDoom". On the next page, find the latest GZDoom and
  33. click the download link that corresponds to your operating system under
  34. "Download (Modern, OpenGL 3.3 and higher)". Put GZDoom in its own directory.
  35.  
  36.  
  37. WINDOWS ONLY:
  38.  
  39. Copy your DOOM.WAD file into the GZDoom directory. Drag and drop SIGIL.wad and
  40. SIGIL_SHREDS.wad onto GZDoom.exe to run it.
  41.  
  42.  
  43. MAC OS ONLY:
  44.  
  45. You will need to copy your DOOM.WAD file into a special directory
  46. for GZDoom to find it. Run the Finder, bring up a New Finder Window, press
  47. Shift-Command-G, type ~/Library and go to the "Application Support" directory, then the "gzdoom"
  48. directory. Copy your DOOM.WAD file here.
  49.  
  50. 1) Run GZDoom
  51.  
  52. 2) Choose DOOM as the game
  53.  
  54. 3) In the "Additional Parameters" section, click "Browse..." and choose the
  55. SIGIL.wad file from the location where you installed SIGIL (hopefully the same
  56. directory as GZDoom). If you bought a fan box, click "Browse..." again to
  57. choose the SIGIL_SHREDS.wad file.
  58.  
  59. 4) Click OK
  60.  
  61.  
  62. When you're in DOOM, select NEW GAME, the SIGIL episode, then the skill level.
  63.  
  64. Have fun!
  65.  
  66. --------------------------------------------------------------------
  67.  
  68. MULTIPLAYER COOPERATIVE MODE
  69.  
  70. DOOM is limited to 8-player multiplayer. To run GZDoom in co-op, one person
  71. will be the host and the other players will connect to the host. Here are the
  72. instructions for running CO-OP MODE:
  73.  
  74.  
  75. [[ WINDOWS PLAYERS ]]
  76.  
  77. To make it easier to run SIGIL and multiplayer mode in general, you should
  78. use ZDL, a GZDoom launcher. Go here to get it: https://zdoom.org/wiki/ZDL
  79. You want the latest version 3-1.0. Put ZDL.exe in the GZDoom directory.
  80.  
  81. CO-OP HOST INSTRUCTIONS:
  82.  
  83. 1) Find out what your IP address is. Run CMD.EXE. Then run ipconfig.exe and
  84. it'll show you the IP. It's usually 192.168.1.X. Tell the other players your IP.
  85.  
  86. 2) Run ZDL.exe
  87.  
  88. 3) Click the "General Settings" tab. On the left pane, click the + to add
  89. a source port. Type GZDoom for the name, then click the ... and Select GZDoom.exe
  90. from the directory where you installed it. In the right pane where it says
  91. "IWADs", click the + and type DOOM, click the ... and select the DOOM.WAD
  92. that's in the same directory as GZDoom.
  93.  
  94. 4) In the "Launch Config" tab, in the left pane named "External Files" click
  95. the + at the bottom and select the SIGIL.wad. Click + again and select the
  96. SIGIL_SHREDS.wad. Then in the right pane, click on the
  97. DOOM IWAD so it's highlighted.
  98.  
  99. 5) Above the "Launch" button you'll see the "Skill" pull-down menu. Select
  100. the skill level.
  101.  
  102. 6) To the left of the "Launch" button is a down triangle. Click it to expand it.
  103.  
  104. 7) Select "Game Mode" as "Co-op"
  105.  
  106. 8) Set the "Frag Limit". We usually use 20.
  107.  
  108. 9) Select the number of players total with the "Players" pull-down menu.
  109.  
  110. 10) You might want to save this setup with CTRL+S
  111.  
  112. 11) Click the HOST button
  113.  
  114.  
  115. OTHER CO-OP PLAYERS:
  116.

  122.  
  123. 4) Select "Game Mode" as "Co-op"
  124.

  128. 6) Select the "Players" pull-down option "Joining"
  129.  
  130. 7) On the right side click the "JOIN" button to start
  131.  
  132. ----------------------
  133.  
  134. [[ MAC OS PLAYERS ]]
  135.  
  136. 1) Find out what your IP address is. Go to System Preferences > Network and
  137. it'll show your IP. Tell the other players your IP address.
  138.  
  139. 2) Run GZDoom.app
  140.  
  141. 3) In the "Additional Parameters" box, go to the end and type:
  142. -skill 4 -warp 5 1 -host X
  143.  
  144. X is the total number of players you want in the game. If it's just two of you, use 2.
  145.  
  146. 4) Click OK. As other players connect to you, you will eventually see the game run.
  147.  
  148. CO-OP PLAYERS:
  149.  
  150. 1) Run GZDoom.app
  151.  
  152. 2) In the "Additional Parameters" box, go to the end and type:
  153. -join X
  154.  
  155. X is the IP number of the host.
  156.  
  157. 3) Click OK
  158.  
  159.  
  160. Your game should start when all players have clicked OK.
  161.  
  162.  
  163. --------------------------------------------------------------------
  164.  
  165. DEATHMATCH MODE
  166.  
  167. The setup is the same as the COOPERATIVE MODE setup for both HOST and the
  168. other players, but the HOST needs to add some parameters to the
  169. "Additional Parameters" box (MAC OS) or "Extra command line arguments" (WINDOWS):
  170.  
  171. -nomonsters -deathmatch
  172.  
  173. It does make things interesting when you leaves monsters in the game
  174. and allow the deathmatch arenas to open into the single-player areas!
  175.  
  176. --------------------------------------------------------------------
  177.  
  178. EXITMATCH
  179.  
  180. I designed this game mode idea decades ago but never programmed it into
  181. a game. It was invented for DOOM, DOOM II, Heretic, Hexen, etc. Basically
  182. any game with level progression where you can kill your buddies. It's
  183. most fun when there are 3 or 4 players.
  184.  
  185. The rules: You play COOPERATIVE mode as usual. You are all killing the
  186. monsters to get to the exit. If you kill each other, that doesn't matter
  187. since you end up at the start of the level anyway and have to catch up to
  188. the other players.
  189.  
  190. But the only way to score the EXITMATCH point is to flip the exit switch.
  191.  
  192. There is only one point possible per level and that point goes to the player
  193. who flips the exit switch! Watch as everyone start the level cooperating,
  194. but as soon as the end of the level is in sight, all kinds of problems
  195. start happening.
  196.  
  197. Before you start, you decide how many levels, or points, are possible
  198. in the match. That's how many levels you'll play, and the winner is the
  199. player who flipped the exit switch the most times. You have to keep track
  200. of the score manually.
  201.  
  202. It's quite possibly the most fun I've had playing DOOM.
  203.

  206. MORE HELP
  207.  
  208. You can find more information about running WADS here:
  209. https://doom.fandom.com/wiki/How_to_play_or_start_wads
  210.  
  211. --------------------------------------------------------------------
  212.  
  213. COMPATIIBLE VERSIONS
  214.  
  215. There are some players who would like to use a more strict, old-school port
  216. of DOOM like PRBOOM or CHOCOLATE DOOM, or the Eternity Engine. If you
  217. are using a version that is very strict, then load the SIGIL_COMPAT.wad and
  218. the SIGIL_SHREDS_COMPAT.wad so SIGIL will work as an Episode 3 replacement.
  219.  
  220.  
  221. I hope you enjoy SIGIL! If you want to drop me an email about it, I'm john@romero.com.
  222.  
  223. Cheers,
