Attention: This list is extremely
outdated. You might try getting the latest versions of all these files at
I hope to have an updated list here at somepoint in the future.
There are a whole bunch of various useful tools that you can use to
enhance your playing pleasure. Here are some of them by category.
All files were downloaded from the main Doom FTP site at
Check here for a list of mirroring sites.
This is by no means a complete list. At the end of each category you'll find
a reference to the directory these utilities came from. You might want to
check that directory to see if a newer version has been released. We try our
best to keep this archive updated, but hey, shit happens.
The most commonly sought utilitiy for Doom or Heretic would be a level editor
to write your own levels or modify existing ones. Some of these editors are for
DOS, some for windows. Check also to make sure it edits Doom (D), Doom 2 (D2)
and Heretic (H) levels.

After you've built your level, you might notice some HOM's or similar
unwanted effects or just speed up your wad a little because the editor of
your choice isn't 100 % efficient in this area.
for more node/reject/blockmap builders.

In the very beginning, when cheat codes where unknown, external programms were
used to increase your stats. Some of hese utils also increase the maximum
amount of ammo you can carry e.g. or let you save more than 6 savegames at
for more save file editing utils.

When your .wad collection has grown or you if you deathmatch a lot of people
and need to keep track of all of them, it's convenient to have a frontend
that helps you quickly start Doom or Heretic with your favorite options.
