This is my first level, folks, so be gentle with me. For the most part, the only "theme" I had in mind was to make the level as aesthetically pleasing and consistent as possible. In other words, I wanted it to look neat. There are lots of little nooks and crannies scattered about, and (I hope) a few sur- prises. I really hadn't intended the level to be so big (128K) when I first started; but, you know, one thing led to another and I just didn't know when to stop.

Description : This is my first level, folks, so be gentle with me. For the most part, the only "theme" I had in mind was to make the level as aesthetically pleasing and consistent as possible. In other words, I wanted it to look neat. There are lots of little nooks and crannies scattered about, and (I hope) a few sur- prises. I really hadn't intended the level to be so big (128K) when I first started; but, you know, one thing led to another and I just didn't know when to stop. Please let me know what you think by E-Mail on CIS. Enjoy. Instructions: Put DANTES.WAD and DANTES.BAT in your DOOM directory, then run the batch file. Hit New Game, Knee Deep, and choose whatever skill you wish. (For a kinder, gentler introduction that takes you right to it, run the KIND.BAT. This skips the intro stuff, chooses "Hey, Not Too Rough" skill, and jumps right into the level. Modify the batch file -skill # as you please.) Disclaimer: I assume no responsibility for anything of any sort in any way, shape, or form, now, then, henceforeward, in this life (or the next several) for any screw-ups or even minor inconveniences this PWAD causes you, your family, your relatives, friends, ancestors, associates, employers, pets, neighbors, lovers, deities (major AND minor), nor any other person -- living, dead, or undead -- that you have or will ever have any contact with in even the slightest form. This PWAD has been tested and tested ad infinitum, so it shouldn't mess with your computer or anything else remotely associated with it. But if it DOES, then too damn bad. Don't come cryin' to me. It must be something YOU did. Grammar Lecture: "a lot" is two words, not one; it's "you're," not "your" -- as in "you are" unless you're (see?) using the possessive in your (uh huh) text descriptions; "their" indicates possession, "there" indicates place or direction.** ================================================================ * Play Information * Episode and Level # : E1M1 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes Difficulty Settings : All New Sounds : No New Graphics : No Demos Replaced : None * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Build Time : For-friggin-ever Editor(s) used : DEU 5.0 and 5.1 by Rapha‰l Quinet & Brendon J.

Not that I want to cast any aspersions, but you can't mean what you say unless you can say what you mean, don't you know. (This information form was provided as AUTH_WAD.TXT v1.2 with DEU 5.1.)
