Description

The initial version of HeXen DK (1.0) was released without a SNDINFO lump, which leads to no music while playing except CD Audio.

A patch was released that corrected this (1.1); all it did was add a SNDINFO lump (it made no other changes at all).

However, this patch, naturally, requires Dos or Dosbox to install. It was never incorporated into any release of the game to my knowledge; all commercial releases to this day have been and are 1.0 (i.e Steam has Ultimate Doom, Heretic SOTR etc, but seemingly HeXen DK 1.0 if the Steam forum comments are accurate).

Thus, I was wondering, if it might be beneficial to users if Dday could somehow automatically imitate this patch when a user runs 1.0 on Dday? Given that what the patch does is extremely specific (i.e it doesn't alter maps, graphics etc).
