A large alien base has been discovered by a Scout and Survey team in the Regulus Cluster on a close Terran analogue. Sensor readings show possible traces of a highly advanced technology. You've been assigned the job of exploration. Relax! Fleet Intel reports that it's 99.999% likely that the base is unoccupied and probably friendly (yeah,right!). You won't be allowed to carry any weapons in but your pistol... as usual.

Sensor readings show possible traces of a highly advanced technology. You've been assigned the job of exploration. Relax! Fleet Intel reports that it's 99.999% likely that the base is unoccupied and probably friendly (yeah,right!). You won't be allowed to carry any weapons in but your pistol... as usual. FI also reports that sensors show five areas adjoining the main plaza, and suggests exploration counter-clockwise from the southeast. Some security gates and devices do seem to still show energy flows... strange. You will beamed into one location showing some anomalous energy readings. By The Way - you wouldn't want to upgrade your insurance plan now - would you? ================================================================ INSTRUCTIONS Oracle.wad is ~~1.3 MEG. If you sucessfully extracted/unzipped it, from the \DOOM2 directory, you should be able to type the following : DOOM2 -FILE ORACLE.WAD [-options] <ENTER> __________________________________________ KICK ASS !! =========================================================================== Play notes: You will require Doom ][ and a 486/66 with local video to be able play this wad well. This wad is the largest single level we know of, and some impact on play speed is impossible to avoid. However we have used all means at our disposal, especially RMB, to make it playable, and we beleive it is. Co-op and Deathmatch notes: This wad is large and complex, hence not ideally suited for multi-player play and potentially slow. But, the starts are there and it HAS been tested and support HAS been added. ================================================================ Additional Credits to : Play testers: John Keary, Matt Jonelis : Tom Neff for his sky texture from PUEBLO.WAD : Brendon Wyber and Raphael Quinet for DEU-GCC : Colin Reed for BSP1.2x : Olivier Montannuy for DeuTex 2.9 : HevKev for the DeuTex Manual : Jens Hykkelbjerg for RMB : Those folks at ID, for Doom & Doom2 ================================================================ * Play Information * Level # : MAP02 (MAP03 also implemented - single only) Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes - Slow unless using killer machines Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes - Ditto...
