This wad was originally map 29 of doom2, the living end (hence the name 
deadend).  As far as single and co-op players, not much has changed as far 
as getting through the level is concerned, but for deathmatch players the 
floor has been converted from acid to water with patches of acid.  The fun
of this level is really in deathmatch.  For those of you who remember map 
the original this was based on, the exit may not be as easy to get to as you
remember.  I've included lots of deathmatch starts (a real pet peeve of mine).
Please email me with problems or feedback.  Enjoy and happy fragging!
