People discovered that if you hacked numbers in the DOOM.EXE under dos you could do cool things like make it so when the shotgun guy dies he doesn't drop a shotgun, but instead drops ... a thing that exists but can't be picked up and will after a short time become another shotgun guy with noclip and invis that is a lot harder to kill.. Ie, a ghost. There was the cheater's favorite patch, the "super shotgun"... Who needs double barrels when the recover time from the shot almost instant? Of course, you start with 50 bullets and they can be used in a matter of a few seconds... hmm, what to do about that? Whelp, pick up a box of bullets and you'll have "000" never need bullets again. Fun to stand in the middle of one of the large arena wads with a rocket launcher, hold the run key and just spin holding fire... You spray rockets like you're using an uzi. Take that superweapon patch and go into a you vs. an army wad with the army all having deaf attribute.. You get a few seconds before they realize you're there, and you can just plow them over.. Cheap entertainment and great stress relief after a long day at work or whatever. => > > Does it support audio? > > Yes.
