Description             : Yet another medieval/castle type level. Quite a
                          small level, which started as an experiment to
                          show off my new flaming torch graphics. You must
                          infiltrate the castle (which is obviously
                          infested with monsters), and escape using the
                          boat in the boathouse at the rear.
                          Note that due to restrictions in Doom (rather
                          than my imagination!), not all the castle may be
                          explored. In other words, not all doors may be
                          As usual with my WADs, Ultra-violence is pretty
                          tough going, and only recommended for veterans.
                          Deathmatch was tested with 2 players (lots of
                          sniping). Cooperative play is untested.
                          This file was originally distributed (via my web
                          site) as CASTLE.WAD but later renamed to avoid
                          conflicting with another file in the idgames
                          archive. It is NOT related to the deathmatch map
                          named CASTLE3.WAD.

Build Time              : Getting the towers and spiral staircases exactly
                          right took many hours. So did ensuring that all
                          the castle architecture was realistic.

Known Bugs              : Does not require a limit-removing source port but
                          there is a bug in vanilla Doom with loading of
                          patch sprites - you have to replace all of them
                          for Doom to work right. If you are afflicted by
                          this bug (and you can be bothered) you need to
                          get hold of Olivier Montanuy's DeuSF utility in
                          order to merge the new torch and fire graphics.
                          Alternatively, if you are using Chocolate Doom
                          then specify the PWAD file using -merge instead
                          of -file.
