    WADs will take a very long time to work on, they are tedious, and you will most likely lose interest half way through. That's what happened to me when I was making a WAD for dod_donner. There are like 150 textures you need to remake, which is a lot of work as you can imagine. It's just simple steps, get gcf scape. Decompile the WAD. Look at the picture, make a new image to match the resolution, crop your photo to match consistency, use the Autoseamer in Photoshop(or download a 3rd party variant). Next go to mode Dad I'd Like to .... avatar
