Description
A 21st century DooM 2 episode that is big, innovative, good-looking, and of course, HARD! This wad features desert and mountain levels, and there are plenty of levels beside the sea. There are also city levels and hi-tech levels. But - every style is represented here, even if it is only 1 level! (except the Spirit-World style) For those of you who like secrets, there are at least 3 in each level (except 25-27 and 29-32 where there are none). And you'll be pleased to know that the secret levels are VERY well hidden........

Updated March 2004 with: an extra patch, which adds weapons/ammo to the start 
of maps 29 and 30 for the purposes of demo recording.  One or two other tweaks 
for demo friendliness too.

         Fragport - The Story so Far
==============================================================================

The year is 2096.

You are Jody Russell, a top space marine.  Your call sign is 'Kill Crazy'
because you kill like crazy and love every minute of it.  Recently, you were
called into action when communications with the military bunker near the remote
city of Fragport suddenly ceased.  Apparently, hellish screams were heard just 
before the communications were cut off.  You took to the skies and headed for 
the city (which is at least 200 miles from civilisation), but you were shot down 
over the desert by the demonic invaders, and now you languish in a prison cell, 
probably awaiting execution.  During your captivity, you overhear the guards
talking about a deadly ironclad that is bringing reinforcements to these shores,
and that it is almost here....Realising that time is running down, you call to a
guard, who comes over...his mistake!  You grab him by the neck and snap it before
he can cry out.  You grab his pistol and 5 clips and search for a means of
escape.......get out or die trying!

Other WAD's by me       : Operation: Lightning (OP-LITE2.WAD)
: Quake 2 skys (Q2SKY*.wad, where * is 1-8)

Completion Date         : 8th December 2001   (Just in time for Crimbo....)

Release Date            : 14th December 2001  (I had to play it first....)

Misc. Author Info       : A hardcore DooMer who loves all it's similar
  games (esp. Quake 2 and Half-Life) but still
  thinks DooM is best.

Description             : A 21st century DooM 2 episode that is big, 
  innovative, good-looking, and of course, HARD!
  This wad features desert and mountain levels, and
  there are plenty of levels beside the sea.
  There are also city levels and hi-tech levels.
  But - every style is represented here, even if it
  is only 1 level! (except the Spirit-World style)
  
  For those of you who like secrets, there are at
  least 3 in each level (except 25-27 and 29-32 where
  there are none).  And you'll be pleased to know that
  the secret levels are VERY well hidden........

  This episode combines the speed and fast-paced action
  that makes DooM so special with the realistic world-like
  adventure of newer games like Quake 2 and Half-Life.

Additional Credits to   : Leo Martin Lim (for the excellent shuttle in maps 22 and 30)
  Russ Walsh (for the corrugated metal texture)
  Josh Fallon (for the night sky texture)
  The authors of gothictx.wad (for the sludge and lava falls)

Single Player          : Yes   (Built for it!)

Cooperative 2 Player   : Yes - Split screen 2 player mode on DooM Legacy
       (you can also play a net game if you wish
        but it's no different from single player
- however, the maps are co-op friendly)

Deathmatch             : No    (Levels are too big and complex)

       (Ammo, health etc. stays the same)

New Game Text       : Yes - All automap names and story text.

      dance or metal tracks)

Demos Replaced         : None
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Construction *

Base                   : My creative mind (And lots of inspiration from a wide
    variety of sources)

Editor(s) used         : WadAuthor, WinTex, DeHackEd, NewWadTool, Zennode 1.1.0, Paint, PSP.

Build Time       : 15 months (on and off, mostly on)  

Known Bugs             : Medium HOM's in levels 4,13,15,22,25 minor one in 19.
 (these were unavoidable without completely changing 
 the area - well, when you design levels of this type
 that push the DooM 2 engine to it's limits, you're
 bound to get some trouble!).
   
 The TIMER (see below) does not work in Legacy, due to 
 the absence of manikins in that source port.  The map 
 is still playable though, just pretend that you die 
 when the 10 minutes are up.


 Some parts of the game will not render correctly with
 OpenGL/Direct3D ports due to the absence of GL nodes.
 Users of such ports will need to build GL nodes for all
 the maps before playing it.

Will Not Run With      : DooM 2 for Windows 95 and any source port that doesn't
 run DeHackEd patches.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The TIMER       : This is a clever mechanism that is present in map 30.
 Once you step forward at the start, you will have
 10 minutes to get out! (real time) Once the time is up, 
 you will DIE (unless you cheat)

 Warning: if you reload a savegame you will lose track
 of the time (unless the automap has it's own clock, like
 in ZDoom). If this happens, just pretend you have very
   little time left, and just leg it!

 And the keys appear in random places on map 30!

==============================================================================
I acknowledge that these levels may not suit everyone's taste, but the aim of 
this episode was to create something new, different and groundbreaking, and I 
feel that has been achieved. I value some aspects of level design more than
others, so it won't be the best thing out there, but it will stand out. And
it's still a quality episode.

That's it. Thanks for choosing to play this episode, you won't be disappointed.
Hope you enjoy it.

Some levels do have large flashing light patterns in, so people with epilepsy
should use the lite-amp cheat (IDBEHOLDL) in such areas. (esp. secret levels)
