HANDICAP TRIO (handicap.wad)
Description
Don't you hate it when you always win? Don't you hate it even more when you always lose? When it comes to the truly important things in life (such as Doom) some of us are better than others. This wad tries to even the balance with a handicap for the less experienced player(s). If you play at skill levels 1 or 2, you must choose your weapon before entering the main play area. You will not find additional weapons later. The weaker player should choose a more powerful weapon than the stronger player. Experiment with weapons to find the best balance between the players. Skill level 3 plays normally. Skill levels 4/5 add monsters. You should be using the -altdeath switch so that weapons and bonuses will respawn.

Description             : Don't you hate it when you always win?
                          Don't you hate it even more when you always
                          lose? When it comes to the truly important
                          things in life (such as Doom) some of us are
                          better than others. This wad tries to even
                          the balance with a handicap for the less
                          experienced player(s).

                          If you play at skill levels 1 or 2, you must
                          choose your weapon before entering the main
                          play area. You will not find additional weapons
                          later. The weaker player should choose a more
                          powerful weapon than the stronger player.
                          Experiment with weapons to find the best
                          balance between the players.

                          Skill level 3 plays normally. Skill levels
                          4/5 add monsters.

                          You should be using the -altdeath switch so
                          that weapons and bonuses will respawn.
