Misc. Author Info       : I hope you enjoy this as much as I had
  fun (yea, right!) making it.  This wad
  is HUGE in case you didn't notice. This
  is due to replacing every except for 3
  of the sounds, many 'new' wall
  textures, three new pieces of music
  (two I wrote), some new sprites
  including the chaingun, BFG, former
  human to name a few, ect.....

* Play Information *

Episode and Level #     : E1M1
Single Player           : Yes
Cooperative 2-4 Player  : Yes
Deathmatch 2-4 Player   : Yes
Difficulty Settings     : Not implemented
New Sounds              : Of course!
New Graphics            : Yup - MANY new wall textures, some 
  sprites, and I even gave the face on                                             the stats box a goatee (heh, heh), but 
  only if you've got 100% health.
New Music               : 2 original pieces, and a very nice
  arrangement of 'We are the champions'
  by Queen.  The music was written 
  for the general MIDI standard setup.
  I don't know how it will sound using
  another sound board setup 
  (probably pretty shitty!).
Demos Replaced          : 1st - If you actually have the patience
  to watch the demo, you will find out
  how to get all three keys - but I call
  it cheating if you do :]

* Construction *

Base                    : New level from scratch
Editor(s) used          : Waded , DoomCAD, Deutex - I also used
  Sequencer Plus Gold and Cubase to write
  the music, and Pain Shop Pro 3 for
  graphics manipulation.
Known Bugs              : One of the wall looks fucked up in the
  maze section - I couldn't figure it
  out, but that's not a big deal.  BIG
  DEAL - for some odd reason I can't
  figure out, the monsters in the
  courtyard can shoot you through the
  walls, just don't stand in one place
  for very long.

Credit where credit is due - 

Kevin L. Roels - for the incredible Mansion WAD.  I was able to
 pull out the flag and armor colums, BFG and
 chaingun sprites, and a couple of sounds.  

Dominique Lavergne - Fortcstl WAD.  I was able to use the stained
     glass and spider web textures. 

Dan Teeter - Surreal2 WAD.  I used a couple of the sounds and a
     wall texture.

Snider - Vivaldi WAD. Some of the sounds and a wall texture I    

Steve McCrea - Trinity WAD. The rock textures, and the arch
       texture (I modified the arch a bit to fit in my

John Jacobsen - three of his paintings.  As agreement with him, I
must post his statement, copyright notice, and a
description of each piece I used.


My work is an attempt to give a concrete aspect to the
subconscious.  I typically work without a preconcieved plan,
letting layers of marks suggest forms and relationships much like
a Rorschach ink-blot test.  When I work this way I generally see
figures, human or otherwise, faces, landscape elements, and
monolithic buildings or technological constructions.  Working
loosely at first and then tighter and tighter, adding more and
more detail, allows the image to emulate a dream-state.  In this
way, events are imagined in detail but are ambiguous, confusing
or fantastic in meaning.  Letting the work evolve in this way
allows the unexpected to come in, and the surprises, for me, are
exciting insights into the workings of my inner mind. I make a
living as a physicist/programmer while sneaking time to do my 
art.  This show is an attempt to bring those two very different
halves of my life together a bit.  In the future I would like to
explore "art under the influence of computer networking" in a way
that takes into account the fact that it is very different to
download a scanned image of a painting than to see the same
painting in a gallery, or to actually hold it in your hands.  For
the moment this show is more a vehicle to get my art seen than an
actual essential element of the artwork itself.
