 +====== WAD ======
 +
 +//WAD// files are the original format that [[games:​Doom]] used to store data files (such as sound, [[modding:​graphic patch|graphic patches]], [[modding:​texture]]s,​ palettes and level information). ​
 +
 +There are two types of WAD files:
 +
 +  * **IWAD** is a complete set of game data (such as //​DOOM2.WAD//​).
 +  * **PWAD** (patch WAD) contains a subset of resources, e.g., a single level. These are meant to be loaded in addition to an IWAD.
 +
 +===== Where can I get DOOM2.WAD or other official IWADs? =====
 +
 +
 +From the original game retail disks, CDs and electronic download retail products (from [[http://​store.steampowered.com|Steam]],​ [[http://​gog.com|GOG.com]],​ or id Software online store).
