Description
This is a complete episode 2 replacement for DOOM. It's a compilation of all my previously released Shores of Hell themed pwads. I haven't just settled on compiling them into one pwad and leaving it at that. Instead each map has been through hours and hours of either adjusting or complete revamping in DoomBuilder to make them stand out as fresh, new maps that will hopefully give players a solid and fun gaming experience - even for those of you, who've played these maps before. I've been just as serious about this release as all my prior releases and I really hope it shows. I thoroughly enjoyed putting this episode together and I hope you will enjoy playing it!

Story       : You've been killing demons on the moons of Mars,
  in Hell and on Earth for so long, that you've
  started accepting the fact that it will never end.
  In fact, you're pretty sure you're stuck in some
  sort of loop as locales already laid to waste by
  you years ago, have started appearing again!
  What is this shit!? You sigh, pick up your trusty
  firearm for God knows which time, and start doing
  what you do best: Killing demons and hoping this
  will finally be the end of it...

Description: This is a complete episode 2 replacement for
  DOOM.
  It's a compilation of all my previously released
  Shores of Hell themed pwads. I haven't just
  settled on compiling them into one pwad and leaving
  it at that. Instead each map has been through hours
  and hours of either adjusting or complete revamping
  in DoomBuilder to make them stand out as fresh,
  new maps that will hopefully give players a solid
  and fun gaming experience - even for those of you,
  who've played these maps before. I've been just as 
  serious about this release as all my prior releases
  and I really hope it shows.
  I thoroughly enjoyed putting this episode together
  and I hope you will enjoy playing it!

  Complevel:
  The episode has been extensively tested on
  complevel 2 and 3 to find all gamebreaking bugs.
  In short: It should be perfectly safe for you
  to use those complevels. If you're the cautious
  type, I guess you could just use complevel 9 :)

  Note to prBoom users:
  The new color palette also affects the
  colors of the automap, so secret areas which by
  default are marked with purple, are now almost black.
  This makes secret areas look like their lines are
  hidden, but they are not. They're there; they're
  just almost invisible. This is unfortunate, but there
  isn't much I can do about it. A solution could be
  to change it from purple to another color such as
  white: In prBoom go to Options - Setup - Automap -
  "Secret sector boundary".

  Here's a description of each, individual map,
  where they come from and what's been done to them:

  !Mild spoilers ahead!

  E2M1:
  First map from "Rip it, Tear it, Smash it!"
  from 2002. Minor adjustments in gameplay and looks.
  Level name: "Rip and tear"
  Music: "Pipeline" by James "Jimmy" Paddock

  E2M2:
  From 2002 A.D.O. E2M2. It's from 2000. Has
  undergone massive revamping! It was a cramped
  level, so it's been opened up in a lot of places,
  and a whole lot of other stuff.
  Level name: "Beta station"
  Music: "Vinefort" by James "Jimmy" Paddock

  E2M3:
  The first of three parts from "The Wailing Horde",
  which was released in 2014. Lots of adjustments
  and additions in terms of gameplay and design.
  Level name: "The wailing halls"
  Music: "Feel the pain" by Paul Corfiatis

  E2M4:
  Major adjustments and changes when compared to
  how this part looked in The Wailing Horde. Second
  part of said pwad.
  Level name: "Hive of the horde"
  Music: "Stormwater" by James "Jimmy" Paddock

  E2M5:
  Originally my ancient map "The Unknown Chasm"
  from 1998. It was a crappy map for Doom II, but
  had potential, I guess. Massively revamped to be
  released as a submission for a contest on
  Doomworld in 2015. Then, lastly, further
  refurbished for this mapset.
  Level name: "Chasm control"
  Music: "Ominus" by Xaser Acheron

  E2M6:
  Second map from "Rip it, Tear it, Smash it!"
  from 2002. Several adjustments and light
  refurbishment in terms of both gameplay, layout
  and texturing.
  Level name: "Smash it!"
  Music: "Dance of the trooper" by Paul Corfiatis

  E2M7:
  This is "High/Low 2" from 2007. Has undergone
  a lot of changes big and small throughout the
  level in terms of both gameplay and architecture.
  Level name: "Hunt 'em highnlow"
  Music: "Hysterical horror" by Paul Corfiatis

  E2M8:
  A never before released level. Originally intended
  for Paul Corfiatis' Doomed Space Wars, but I
  scrapped it. Took it up again for this mapset
  and made it work as a boss level.
  Level name: "Domain of evil"
  Music: "Sick Building Syndrome"
                  by James "Jimmy" Paddock

  E2M9:
  Third part of "The Wailing Horde". Minor
  adjustments to accomodate its separation from
  the original pwad.
  Level name: "The end?"
  Music: "Caught in the shadows"
  by James "Jimmy" Paddock
