You may wonder "well what's such big news?"
Well this is what:
Remember when I complained about not being able to install Doom Builder on my mom's computer because it needed DirectX and I wasn't an admin so I couldn't install it?
I found a way to get past those admin barriers, and get the next best thing:
The Slade level editor!
It has a very similar interface to Doom Builder, so people who also can't install DB, get slade!
I can now map for ANQ again, and this time they won't be sucky and short, they'll be level-sized, and filled with detail and enemies.
And yes, it will be medium, not Supah-Monstah-Killa-Die-When-You-Spawn-Hard.
It's really exciting, and now I can actually make it without the WAD being taken away from me because both of the computers I used broke.
This post will be updated with screenies soon, and MAYBE in a week or so a demo. I have TONS of time on my hands.
I used to be the new guy that no one talks to, now I'm just the vaguely familiar guy that no one talks to

Now that you have a working editor, I can't wait to see what you come up with.

My PC will not run SLADE, but Doom Builder will work. Weird...

You need the VC Redist packages. It says so right on SLADE's download page. Look under Requirements at the bottom of the Latest Official Release section:

Unless of course you used the installer. In that case, I would recommend running SLADE in different compatibility configurations, ESPECIALLY if your running Vista.
Shh!  I'm taking a break from reality.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life!

Give God your life; You won't regret it!

Slade is a bit hard to use for beginners so don't worry if you get frustrated.
