Castle of Evil. (previously released in beta form as ss27bet2.wad) First of all let me say... This is bloody *HUGE* 8) I've been working on this for a long time since most of the earlier editors couldn't handle a large level like this one.
============================================================================== Title : CASTEVIL.WAD Author : Stanley Stasiak, (lordwlfie on IRC) Email Address : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : deuoholic extrodinaire. Description : Castle of Evil. (previously released in beta form as ss27bet2.wad) First of all let me say... This is bloody *HUGE* 8) I've been working on this for a long time since most of the earlier editors couldn't handle a large level like this one. Made for sp, coop or dm (I aim to please.) It's pretty open with only a few doors requiring keycards. Other doors may require a switch. There are peep holes and ambush spots almost everywhere for happy deathmatch. But open spaces are also provided for those all out battles. Most heavy firepower is heavily guarded by monsters or hidden. The only easy weapon to get in single player mode is the shotgun. All the weapons are present. This level is mostly hack, slash, ambush + puzzle type. For more information consult the other .txt files in this archive. There now go kill something... Send me some hate mail. Hardware Requirements : 486 DX/33 VLB with > 4Mb of RAM Don't even contemplate a 386, you won't like it. If you only have 4Mb this level *will* crash or be extremely slothful. Software Requirements : doom registered v 1.666 (v 1.2 will show HOM, and the demos are for 1.666) Additional Credits to : id software for making doom (also I reproduced a small part of e1m4 for this) Raphael & Co. for making DEU. (DEU still rulez! blah just try and load this in waded or edmap muhahaha! ;) ... although doomed might handle it.. when its out) Colin Reed for making BSP 1.2 Jens Hykkelbjerg for making RMB 2.0 (400% speed increase on UV @95% efficiency, oh my lord!) Thanks a bunch to slug for the waterfall texture... (<email removed>) mail him if you want to rip it for your own projects, ya hear! ... and for the single mode demos. Thanks to O-Sensei & Co. for producing a DM demo/lmp (O-Sensei Red, Kluster Indigo, Yak Brown & Psychosis Green) Thanks to all my Single Player mode beta testers: Creeper, slug, Deviant, lotlhwI 'lokWEE, johndoe Benjos, Europia, and all the other guys on IRC. ============================================================================== * Play Information * Episode and Level # : E2M5 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes (good luck) Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes (Hell yes!) tuned for deathmatch at various skill levels, see dmatch.txt for more information (recommend 3 or 4 player) (I'd like to see some 4 player lmps of this) Difficulty Settings : Yes New Sounds : No New Graphics : Yes, waterfall. Demos Replaced : ALL (2 single player & 1 dmatch) demo 1: single player demo demo 2: short deatchmatch demo demo 3: quite lengthy single player demo with some spoilers. * Construction * Base : New level from scratch (small section (dejavu) reproduced to match a section of e1m4)). Build Time : Long long, way too long. Started in April '94 Stopped many times because of memory restrictions of editors and coz I only had 4Mb b4. Editor(s) used : DEU (from 4.31 to 5.21gcc ... yes 4.31 was useful in debugging node errors of DEU 5.0, in early stages) BSP12x for nodes rebuilding. RMB 2.0 for reject table and special ambush effects. Known Bugs : You'll see HOM if you're using v 1.2 of doom so use v 1.666 or 1.7 ... or whichever is the latest one now. You can't save on this level. Its just too complex for doom. It will crash the savegame buffer if you try.
