Description
This is my newest and best Quicken Wad ever. It contains all of my previous levels (with changes) and 4 new ones. Contains new textures, pictures, level names, status bar, sounds, and AWESOME DM LEVELS. The staus bar is a very cool one that I made using a well known one and doom graphics. All of the sounds are serious in nature and really add to the feel of the game. (Check out how great the single shotgun sounds now, you'd think its better than the double) If you only like playing dm then Quicken5 may be too intense for you, BUT IF YOU CRAVE PLAYING DEATHMATCH THEN QUICKEN 5 IS A MUST PLAY WAD!!!!

        Playtesters' Results:

           Okay DM levels - 7,8                 5.5-6.9

   
     Lev.1 - Welcome War

   This level was added due to the number of people asking
   me to make "one of those simple, big levels" that have
   become popular on the DM circuit. So thats exactly what
   this is with a little added spice of my own. Has a very  
   cool welcome area and the actual fighintg area is simple
   , but great in DM. Be sure to step into the sign to get
   to the real DM area. I made this a little smaller than 
   in Quicken4 and gave it a sky.


     Lev.2 - Blackfrag

   This is a complete remake of my first blackfrag level. It 
   is like a figure-eight level with a hallway circling 
   the whole thing.  Windows allow easy finding of
   enemies and weapons 5-7 take a little time to get.
   I made 5 easier to get and made it look better overall.
   This level has got to be one of the best testers of 
   real deathmatchers and has been play tested by some 
   of the best around.
      


     Lev.3 - Teknique  (Playtesters' Favorite)

   A cool looking level with a lot of attention to 
   detail and some added halls and rooms that make it much
   better than before. One of the draw backs of the original
   was that the fights were more of massacres than deathmatches
   because all of the weapons were easy to obtain and most of
   the rooms had only one way in/out. Well, that has all been 
   fixed making this somewhat like map01 of doom2. Check out 
   the awsome "super fast" door at the end of the main 
   hallway, great in BFG & Rocket fights



     Lev.4 - Rockon
      
   A small rock looking level with many cool details and 
   good weapon placement. No changes except some lighting and
   color of the slime and fixed the respawn bug. Seems to be
   a great BFG fragging level.
   
    
  
     Lev.5 - Deathpan

   A small wood & panel looking DM level that leads to 
   some very cool and very fast frags. Again, a lot of 
   detail is put into this level and although the design 
   looks simple, it makes a rock'n DM level. The only change 
   is the shotgun hall way is bigger to allow for more action,
   and and addition hall way from the plasma room to the open 
   area.


     Lev.6 - MetalGear 

   A medium wood & metal level that is great in deathmatch. 
   Weapon placement is good and look for many good
   frags near the bfg teleport. Looks really cool and the  
   local playtests have had great reviews. Play it, you'll
   like it!!!


     Lev.7 - The Abyss

   A medium big brick level that is very dark in atmosphere
   and has many cool new DM ideas. The weapons are well placed
   and there is sense of luck to it as some weapons can only
   be obtained a certain times. The biggest feature though is
   the deep abyss in the center of the level that allows
   many of your kills to fall helplessly to their death. This  
   allows for some of the coolest frags ever in DM as you see
   you buddies fly out of the hallway and in to the abyss.
   I made 7 easier to obtain and tried to speed it up alittle.
                   I now consider this one of my weaker DM levels.


     Lev.8 - Ash of Death (Marble Massacre)

   A medium ash and metal level that used to be called Marble
   massacre. I changed the textures to a more darker feel
   and added some extra walls to make it not as open of a
   level. Has some really cool looking areas and only
   6 & 7 take time to get. I also consider this one of my 
   weaker DM levels.


     Lev.9 - REEF IT!!!  

   This is by far one of the best levels i've ever made and  
   ever will. Includes many different altitudes for fragging
   and many textures that make it look really cool. It is
   suitable for any numbers of players and again 6 & 7 take
   a little time to get. The local playtest call it one of
   the most intense they have ever played.


     Lev.10 - Plumett Attack   (Author's Favorite)

   This is one of my newest additions to my Quicken wads, and  
   contains some of my best work yet. It has great 
   texture design and a few cool lighting effects. In
   DM this level really rips, as it contains many 
   altitudes for fragging and just enough space to keep
   things interesting. Weapon placement is good and going
   to get the BFG is a great adventure (in a good way). 
   Also contains one of my "Hyper doors" from my Quicken4
   - Lev.3 wad. Enjoy!!!


     Lev.11 - Map1 Redone

   This is my first and only map01 redo. Added some teleporters
   and stairs to open it up a little and made the outside 
   have a purpose besides getting the single shotgun. Doesn't
   produce the same intensity as the original, but it still
   rocks in DM.


     Lev.12 - Ground'M

   This is a very unique level that uses my "frags out the 
   window" idea in a much better way than in The Abyss. 
   Basically looks like some kinda castle/tower thats in the
   middle of nowhere. Red telepoters take you directly up
   while silver ones take you across and up. Be careful when 
   going for 5 or you'll be sent outside.


     Lev.13 - Grayskull

   Besides the battlerooms, this is the fastest wad I have 
                   made.  Contains many of my "speed doors" and probably my
                   best weapon placement.  Has many little nooks and crannies
                   that add to its intensity, but don't take away from its 
                   speed. I would say this is my favorite level, but its just
                   too new for me to be sure.  Teleporters are abundant and
                   both strategy and skill are needed.


     Lev.14 - Battleroom

   Probably the funniest level I've ever made that is great 
   for both serious DM's or building your DM skills at close 
   range. Is simply two rooms connected by one huge window 
   and two doors. The only weapon is the dbl. shotgun and 
   with four players the average life span is about five
   seconds. Try playing this level for a while and then go 
   back to a normally sized DM level and you'll see vast 
   improvement in your aiming and shooting ability.


     Lev.15 - Battleroom2

   Another very small level that has the same feel as the 
   original one. Is one big room seperated by four big squares 
   which makes it basically a crossing of hallways. The
   double shotgun is the main weapon with a rocket launcher
   in the middle. Again, great at building skills, especially
   the all too important "mouse 180 swing".
