By default, under the base folder, in the root player.edf, there are two classes defined: DoomMarine (only if game is Doom) and Corvus (only if game is Heretic). Any of these classes may be redefined in mods, there's no need for a delta structure. So if you want to change the player speed and initial health, you can do so in mods by redefining game's default class.

You can also define a new player class and make it the default by setting default true .

Player skin[edit]

Skins are options for the player to appear differently. Despite the "skin" name, it means changing both the graphics and sounds, just without changing the player class (behaviour).

Any skin you define will appear in the menu in the "Player Setup" section as an option.

The default skins are "marine" for Doom and "corvus" for Heretic. You can redefine your own "marine" or "corvus" skin in your mod's EDF and it will replace the default player skin. Do this if you want to change the sprite and sound of the protagonist.

The fields are:

  • sprite
Sprite to replace the default player's with.
  • faces
DOOM status bar graphics lump prefix replacement.
  • sounds
Optional replacement sounds for common player sounds. Use EDF sound names.
