who's wads are great demonstrations of good level
Oh yeah, Thanks to ID Software for making a game that
lets you make your own levels. Can't wait for QUAKE.
Episode and Level # : MAP01
Single Player : Yes!! (This is the point!)
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes, but You'll waste alot of time trying to "take
them all on".
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, but the special "routing" of this level can be
annoying. All the players gotta REALLY know the level.
Difficulty Settings : Yes.
Alteration of Level? : YES.
New Sounds, Graphics, : Nope.
Music, Replace Demos? : Yes. N-sane1.lmp. (Christ, but I HATE the DOOM2
music! I will Include some other tune when I can...)
Base : COMPLETELY new level. ("Yawn")
Editor(s) used : DCK 2.2 (Best interface). DEEP7 (most thorough, but
VERY slow considering that I have the unregistered
version: This wad is free - So what's the point of
paying for an editor???) DoomCad 5.1 (Great, but my
WIN95 kept locking up.) Wintex, (Great now that I
know how to use it.)
Build Time : about 24 hours, not counting playtesting...
Known Bugs : Arch-Vile bug on Spectre in big room if killed in
the doorway. Deal with it!
This level was extensively playtested on a DX2/80
with 8 megs of RAM (mine), a DX2/66 with 4
megs of RAM (Chompie's) and a 486DX2/80 with 4
megs of RAM (Nico's). I would strongly
recommend playing this level with no less than
4 megs and 33+ mhz CPU.
If you get lost, then I've done this right. Don't
rely on the map! Just keep a cool head and keep

levels. But since this level is based on a "Trick" or "Gimmick", It doesn't
really lend well to upgrading. If you use this level in a multi-level WAD, let me
like to know about it so I can get a copy of the multi.

* Playing tips *
This level is specifically designed to get you lost. There are
special sections that contain monsters for no other purpose than to generate
dis-orienting sounds. If it seems like you can't get anywhere, keep moving
and try again: You may not be where you think you are, and where you think
you can go will keep changing. Don't worry though - This level has been
extensively playtested to make sure that you cannot get "stuck".
There are a LOT of monsters in this level. Don't stress, just get
them to kill each other; It's all a matter of where you stand. THIS IS
ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR THE "BOSSES".
You may notice that almost nothing will show up on the automap:
Well.... That's the point, now isn't it? But take heart, for there is a very
important secret "window" that WILL show up on the map.
* The .Lmp files *
N-SANE1.lmp is a hoot... It demonstrates that it IS possible to run the
level in one shot + leaving with better than 100% health and some decent ammo.
Because of the randomness involved with monster-monster brawls, the final con-
flict at the end is always different. I tried to run the level as if I didn't
know the secrets, so I tend to wander around as if lost - making all the mis-
takes that can be made (I even take a few fire-balls in the face).
* Miscellaneous notes *
This is my first WAD. I couldn't have done it without DCK 2.2. Thanks guys!
Also: I know that my textures kinda suck, but I HATE playing with textures.
It was hard enough just to set up the level. I tried to put in only original
ideas for this level, but since I haven't checked out EVERY other PWAD that
has been made, I can't say that this hasn't been done before.
Please e-mail me and lemme know what you think. I have considered making 3
more levels for a series, but I first need to know if anyone's gonna care.
