STARBASE Version 1.1
STARBASE Version 1.1
A "different" DeathMatch level.
================================================================ Title: STARBASE Version 1.1 Author: Jaswant S. Hayre <a.k.a. BLADE> Location: Kent, UK E-Mail Address: CompuServe 100070,3233 Description: A "different" DeathMatch level. This level is specifically designed for DEATHMATCH play. If you want to experience the ultimate DeathMatch level try MEGADETH by this author. It's the best available! STARBASE incorporates the use of enhanced weapons. Laser sights and MegaViolence mode are independently switchable. Story: The aliens came to Earth on a mission of peace but the Pentagon decides to capture their starbase to steal their weapons technology. And whilst they're there, why not perform some hideous genetic experiments on them too... You will capture the aliens' most advanced weaponry: guns with laser sights, silencers and enhanced firepower! Gameplay: STARBASE is designed solely for deathmatches although all other modes are supported. Enhanced Weapons: STARBASE gives you access to enhanced weapons. These incorporate laser sights for the pistol, shotgun and chaingun. (Laser sights are optional.) The laser sights are not used for the rocket launcher, plasma rifle and BFG9000 because these weapons have a blast radius and do not need precise aiming. The laser sights will auto-dim when you enter darkened areas to avoid giving your position away :)) Like with the real thing, if you keep the trigger down on the pistol, shots will tend to wander after the first one. It is best to release the trigger after each shot. This also applies to the chaingun. Short controlled bursts of fire are most effective. For super-enhanced weapons, try MegaViolence mode. MegaViolence Mode: MegaViolence mode only operates with Doom V 1.2. You must also ensure you have at least 581 Kb free on your hard disc for the installation program to create a backup of DOOM.EXE. This mode gives you access to enhanced super-weapons :)) In this mode, you have enhanced hand to hand combat, a quick -fire auto-pistol, a rapid re-load shotgun, a 2200 rounds per minute chaingun, a rapid re-load rocket launcher firing super high explosive ammo and a fast-fire plasma gun. ================================================================ * Play Information * Episode and Map #: E1M2 Single Player: Yes - but barely playable Cooperative 2-4 Player: Yes - but unplayable Deathmatch 2-4 Player: Yes!
