THE ENTRYWAY 1.2, 1st Level in The UNHOLY Series
Uh, I'm still working on that. Maybe a storyline will give me a reason to actually release a v1.3. For now, though, use the same story id gave you.
08/08/95 ============================================================================= Title : THE ENTRYWAY 1.2, 1st Level in The UNHOLY Series Copyright @1995 by John Walker IV (John W. Anderson can Copyright his :) Author : John Walker IV for DOOM II E-mail Address : <email removed> Other Files by Author : No previous levels to my name. : 31 levels to come in this Series (hopefully). Misc Author Info : DOOM fanatic... SPC in the US Army (92y) Unit Supply Specialist Additional Credits : My wife for her patience. : Paul Sterud for putting up with my anoying calls: "Dude, check out the wad now, I added another texture!!!" : A guy nicknamed ||BARON|| who I met on IRC (my first playtester who was a complete stranger). The next one will be out soon, I promise! : John W. Anderson for the disclaimer (it was his text file for ACHRON22 I borrowed for this and all future text files). : All the authors for all the editors and other utilities I used for creation. : Mark Riel for the "Unholy was here" patch. And for being patient with me while I tried to import it in the level. : Everyone at Id Software for allowing people like me to create my own world! Not to mention a great game! Hip Hip ... : Bishop for importing the title screen for me. Description : Uh, I'm still working on that. Maybe a storyline will give me a reason to actually release a v1.3. For now, though, use the same story id gave you. The level is meant to look like one single building. You might just notice the attention to detail I tried to take into account when creating the level. The outside of the building and anything else that might be exposed to weather has a stone, brick, or bronze texture. BUT, close inspections of the brick textures will show that those openly exposed to the outside are beaten and falling apart, while those inside the building still look new. Nothing much, but I though it was kind of clever :) Also, look how the outside walls above the red key are lower than the cage sections. Again, nothing much but I thought that was clever too. Instructions : Put UNHOLY01.WAD in your DOOM 2 directory, type "doom2 -file unholy01.wad -warp 01 -skill <#>" Disclaimer : I assume no responsibility for anything of any sort in any way, shape, or form--now, then, henceforeward in this life (or the next several) for any screw-ups or even minor inconveniences this PWAD causes you, your family, your relatives, friends, ancestors, associates, employers, pets, neighbors, lovers, congressional representatives, nor any other person-- living, dead, or undead -- that you have or will ever have any contact with in even the slightest form.

I was about ready to give up when DCK saved the day! Although, I had to run it in Windows mode and I messed with my config.sys and stacker got screwed up, and almost had to format my hard drive, and a smoked a carton of cigarettes in the process..... v1.2 UNHOLY01.WAD Added recommendation list to text file. Found the bug (Overload). Added a title screen that can be used in all my future levels. ============================================================================= * Copyright / Permissions * Authors MAY use this level as a base to build additional levels.

Great construction in this wad, including features such as a musoleum <?> with a chaingunner...some- where, people burning at the stake, a church (small), and the most awesome exit I've ever seen. This wad is simply great. Oh, BTW, as soon as I contact the author, don't be surprised if you see that same sky texture in one of my future levels. ============================================================================= * Where to get this WAD * FTP: ftp.cdrom.com (somewhere under .2/idgames) BBS: The Coffee Cup (520)459-2647 (This text file was originally provided as AUTH_WAD.TXT v1.2 with DEU 5.1.)
