Credits : Brian Waak for putting up with my e-mails. My family for putting up with me. My Hexen cohorts for play testing. Ben Morris and the rest of the Hexen hackers, for shedding some light into the undocumented darkness. **** Strategy/Rules **** I have had to work around some severe limitations of the Hexen scripting. So: 1. The flags are Skull and Gem. Skull Team needs to get the Gem from the opponents fort, return to home base, and put the Gem on the pedestal. Gem Team needs to get Yorick's Skull and put it on the headless statue. Just select it from inventory and press enter (or your "use" key). 2. You CAN pick up your own flag. Agree ahead of time if this is acceptable to your opponents. It will be respawned five minutes after it was picked up but not used. (i.e. Player carrying the item died, or team picks up their own flag.) Or when the item is used. Any picking up of flags _is_ intentional. 3. No class has a definite advantage. 4. Play with monsters on. You will miss out on too much with the -nomonsters flag. 5. The score is announced when a player uses the item. Make sure your teammate is in the fort when you put the last item in. You'll see why. 6. This level is not focused on frag counts. Although you never know if the opponent is carrying a flag. **** One last note **** For all you wad authors out there, I have included my script file. Strangest of all, the code is documented. If you have found better ways of doing things, please e-mail me. This is also why there aren't any poly objects in this level. I was too busy learning how to program the game engine to get into the poly objects. **** Copyright / Permissions **** Authors MAY USE this level as a base to build additional levels without specific permission from its author.
