Frag the hell out of your friends (?) in some gloomy subway-tunnels and check out the local junkfood parlor
============================== SUBWAY.WAD - The Deimos Subway ============================== This is a fairly large PWAD that takes place in a very small subway system and the rooms attached to the stations. Please read the scenario story below. It replaces E2M1. To run this with Doom, unpack the archive in your doom directory, and then type: Doom -file subway.wad Please mail any comments, suggestions, or criticism, etc to firstname.lastname@example.org. ...nz ================================================================ Title : SUBWAY.WAD Author : Neal Ziring Email Address : email@example.com Description : Demons have taken over the UAC Deimos subway.

This hour, no report. You and your platoon have been ordered to investigate the reports (demons? zombies?!) and secure the subway, maintaining the amount of violence at a level short of complete destruction. Being trusting as she is, you C.O. has issued you only pistols. Maybe you can find some more weapons and ammo in the subway before you buy it. Pre-mission briefing includes the fact that the subway has three stations, with several room attached to each station. Your destination is the central station. As you prepare to step through the teleporter to Deimos, you gaze out on the Phobos landscape and see crescent Mars hanging in the gray sky. Your buddies step through, now it's your turn... ============================================================================= NOTES AND HINTS - In the subway-master's office are two large pictures of Jupiter. Both of these pictures date back to the Shoemaker-Levy bombardment of Jupiter way back in 1994 (actually, one of the images is a composite, but the big one with the plume is an actual impact image from the Keck telescope in Hawaii -- fragment G, I think). - There are quite a few secret areas. Most of them are fairly easy to find. It is pretty much impossible to complete this level on HMP or UV without finding at least some of the secret areas. - There is graffiti in the subway car. Go in there and see it. - Every Doom 1.2 weapon is available in this level. There are not enough weapons to go around for everybody in multi-player mode -- this can make for some friendly competition. Go find 'em. - The add-on music is a jazz piece named "Take the A-Train". I got it off a public FTP site at some college in Europe. If you don't like it, just use "dmmusic d_e2m1 -f subway.wad -r" to take it out of the Pwad. - Please note the interesting, graffiti-covered door near the end of mission. Be careful after you go through it. - The little retail establishment in the east station sold Gyros (ala Seinfeld). - I haven't been able to beat this level on UV yet, although I've come close. It is really designed for play on HMP. Shoot accurately if you try it on UV. - I ran into a heck of a DEU bug when I was about 85% done with this level, and it made the level unplayable (it also managed to make a file capable of crashing other Doom editors!). The only solution I found was copying the entire map and deleting the old copy. That's why the coordinate range is somewhat extreme. - When you finish the level, look for the mission name. - The rest of the items below are spoilers, in order of increasing spoili-ness...don't read them until you have trouble. ********************* - Be thrifty with your ammo at the beginning of the mission, especially in UV. - You may find it necessary to leave the center station before securing it entirely, to go find ammo in one of the other stations. - In the garden room: Don't try to shoot all those Cacodemons! Find a way render them immobile. - Anywhere you see an enemy in a station, you can go there. - The yellow keycard is not essential, just helpful. The red and blue are necessary and you have to get the red one first. - Look behind the trees in the east station. - Use the red keycard to get the computer map. - Use the chainsaw on a bunch of demons. There are two chainsaws to be found in the whole mission map. - There is a blur sphere available in the east station, but you have to be fairly quick to get it. - There are two teleporters outside the executive office. - If you want more specific hints than these (unlikely) then just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. ************************** Enough babbling then. Go get those demons!
