================================================================ Title : THETA-4.WAD Author : Michael Houston Email Address : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : Mathematics Student. Doom Addict. Description: Due to the imposing evil forces that presently inhabit the Earth, the United Federation of Space Marines (UFSM) have set up an isolated training ground hidden away in mountains of Tibet. What was once a peaceful shrine dedicated to meditation of Tibetan monks, THETA-4 (Territorial Human-to-Human Earth Training Area) has been converted into a highly active centre for the training of Marine recruits. The THETA series training grounds specializes in battles that are strictly marine vs. marine, since it has been shown in the past that there have been a number of cases where platoons have been completely wiped out by one of their own "former" marines, due to possession. Like all the other THETA's, marines will fight each other, not other monsters (there are none). Scenario 1: Even the Tibetan Shrines, tucked away high atop the tallest mountains in the world, could not escape the evil that was unleashed upon Earth. Before the shrine could be used as a training area, it had to first become secured and free from all Evil. Your goal is to secure the area, either alone or with a team. You will be dropped in through the central roof, behind the backs of the enemy. Other weapons have been air-dropped around the level for your benefit, and it is rumoured that Tibetan guerillas, during the revol- ution several years ago, once kept a small stash of weaponry hidden in each shrine, including this one. Good luck! Scenario 2: In the five days following the securing of the shrine, THETA-4 was prepared for training, with all toxins, carcasses and other forms of evil removed. Your goal is simple - eliminate all other opponents. You have every weapon at your disposal, yet to get to each one may not be easy. You also have the choice to play with the shrine containing only weapons (ie only those items which will not disappear) or with the place littered with every kind of item and weapon imaginable. To exit the level you must cooperate. * Play Information * Episode and Level # : E1M1 Single Player : Yes. But designed primarily for Deathmatch. Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes.

This exit is unreachable during multiplayer games. - For multiplayer games, the exit button is between two RED torches. 2 players must cooperate in order to get to the exit. - This level was designed to be a Deathmatch level - there are no toxic areas where the opponent can kill himself. - The level is riddled with ambushes and snipers spots. For example, the stairs leading from the doors at the beginning have a little nook near them. The trick is to open the door, and hide in the nook. The opponent will notice (or hear) the door opening, then proceed in that direction, up the stairs, right past you. This will give you a perfect shot in the back. - It is possible to get ALL the weapons without cheating. Actually, I kind of give it away in the demo, so look there if you're unsure.
