BAKPK21B.WAD - DOOM II BACKPACK v2.1 'B'
5 single-player levels for DOOM II with new music, some new sounds,
a new monster, and some gorey death animations for existing monsters.

NOTE: BAKPK21B.WAD requires a Source Port which can import wads
      containing sprite data - such as ZDoom, MBF, Boom, PRboom,
      Legacy, etc.

This is a modified version of BAKPAK21.ZIP which included BACKPACK.WAD
(dated 1 Sept 1996).

Original author    :   Scott Langstaff            psycho@sol.co.uk
Version 'B' Update :   Sparky of KISS Software    kelm@eisa.net.au

Mods made by Sparky of KISS Software:
- deleted the Level 30 Nightmare Demo (lev30n.zip) as it was irrelevent
- converted the thanks.doc file from MS-Word format to plain text and
  appended onto the end of this document.
- deleted demo2 and demo3 (internal lmp demos) as they were demos of
  the original Doom II levels and had nothing at all to do with the
  levels contained in BAKPK21B.WAD.
- deleted MAP 31 because it was a Deathmatch level, and besides, none
  of the levels had an exit to the secret level.
- deleted the faulty m_doom menu graphic
- renamed the levels so they run one after the other like a real set of
  levels. Note that the original authors designed these levels to be
  stand-alone (i.e. you start with a pistol only) so they may be a
  little too easy played sequencially.

    OLD LEVEL      NEW LEVEL      LEVEL NAME                AUTHOR
    ---------      ---------      ----------                ------
        4              1       Loki Level 4               Philip Ward
       13              2       metro13.wad                Mike Reed
       19              3       caslotr2.wad               Scott Crank
       22              4       The Undiscovered Realm     Ian Cunning
       26              5       Mines                      Iiika Kernen
       31           deleted

- renamed the music to match the level changes above so the levels
  have the same music
- deleted all the unused music - only kept title/intermission music
  and the music for the 5 new levels.
- converted the lmp demo for Map 26 Mines to operate with Map 5
  (using Lmp Fiddler v1.9 by Ryan Robinson).
- the original backpack.wad was 2.6MB uncompressed, this version 'B'
  update is 1.9MB uncompressed.


Patching is not required when BAKPK21B.WAD is used with one of the
above mentioned Source Ports. Just use BAKPK21B as-is.  For example:
     zdoom -file bakpk21b
     legacy -file bakpk21b.wad

     (See the intructions specific to your Source Port)


BAKPK21B.WAD was tested okay with:
   ZDoom v1.18b      MBF v2.03              PRboom v2.02
   Boom v2.02        Legacy (DOS) v1.28     Legacy (Win32) v1.28


Known bugs - the lmp demo ends prematurely at the same place using all
             the ports (except ZDoom which does not support lmp v1.9
             at all).


The original text file follows:

                       DooMII Backpack V2.1
                     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                 Scott Langstaff  (psycho@sol.co.uk)

This wad was originally inspired by Mark Klem's excellent
Markinc wad. The idea of including things you would always 
want when you play DooMII :)

What's "DooMII Backpack" all about? Well, basically I have taken 
a whole bunch of cool DooM stuff, stuck it all together, and
added some of my own touches..In short, this is everything
you could possibly want for DooM2 (almost).

For a full listing of everyone who has contributed towards this wad,
see THANKS.DOC as soon as possible.
Apart from the files required to play backpack.wad, I have also
included:

LEV30N.ZIP }   
            LEV30N.LMP
            LEV30N.TXT

This is purely for interest and you may remove it if you wish.

*************************INSTRUCTIONS****************************************

INSTALL
        - this will put all the sprites into the wad, making it playable.
          (afterwards you will be taken straight into the game)

BACKPACK 
         - after it has been installed, you can play it again by typing this.

That's all there is to it. It doesn't edit the main WAD or EXE file or 
anything else - so don't worry. Just enjoy.

*****************************************************************************

I would greatly appreciate people's opinion on this wad. 
Of course, you can e-mail me about anything related to DooM if you like.
Or black metal, or ferrets (Ferrets TC?) or whatever.
Also, if you discover any bugs, please let me know.

If you wish to use any part of this wad elsewhere, check out THANKS.DOC
to see if the part you wish to use is listed with the author and contact
address.. However, if an author or contact address is not known 
for some reason then I'm afraid I can't help..
If you wish to distribute DooMII Backpack as a full package, then 
feel free, but please let me know first.
