Introducing self
« on: November 21, 2009, 08:58:13 PM »
Hello. My name is redshirt_55 (that's a Star Trek reference). Chex Quest came out when I was three and I've been a fan of it since, but I am completely new to the concept of fan-made mods. I have downloaded Doom Builder 2 and have been experimenting with making my own maps. After trying a few fan-made mods, I was curious as to how they were able to change the title screen and episode/map names. If you know anything about this or know of another thread which discusses it (I've run some searches but haven't found anything) please point me in the right direction.

Hello redshirt welcome to the CQFF!  ;D

If you want to add graphics to your mod you should try either XWE or SlumpEd.

Thanks, I've figured out how to replace the title screen and menu header using SlumpEd. But I still haven't figured out how to change episode/map names, can anyone help?

If you are using ZDoomM/GZDooM as an engine you can use MAPINFO to define names for your levels.
