================================================================ IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO READ ALL OF THIS README, YOU MUST KNOW THAT YOU NEED TO USE IDCLEV TO WARP TO E2M8. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW OR WHAT THAT MEANS, YOU HAD BETTER READ (SOME OF) THIS FILE. ALSO, READ ABOUT DOOM 1.2 BUG ================================================================ Game: DOOM I, v1.2 users watch out: see below (bugs) :( Title : The Hives Filename : Hives.WAD, or LowHives.WAD if you experience crashes Author : William Benfold Email Address : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : I put this level together to take my mind off my GCSEs, and now that they are over, I am beginning to wonder why I bothered. I have the answer though: I ENJOYED CREATING IT :) I don't really mind what people think of it, if you like it, please Email me to tell me so. If you have any constructive criticism, I suppose that wouldn't go amiss :) Description : <--- I hate this trying to fill this line, but many people like a bit of story, so I better think of one >:-< Okay, hows this: After cleaning up phobos, deimos, hell, and earth, you got a little slack, relaxed yourself, etc. Aren't heroes (or heroines, to be politically correct) supposed to get fat juicy rewards? You still have your souvenir bunny impaled on a stake, but it's hardly a king's (or queen's) ransom. If you had asked for money BEFORE saving the world, you could have been the richest man (stuff the equal opportunities, it's getting tedious) on earth. Now you are sharing a run-down shack with some mice, a million spiders, and a rare form of fungus. you are listed as "experiencing moderate financial difficulties" (ie. you can't afford a piece of paper on which to work out how deeply you are in debt). There is only one way left to earn a living: bounty hunting. That is where a (substantial) reward is agreed on before you risk life and limb for the salvation of mankind. You have heard about a military bunker, roughly two miles north of deimos, which could easily have been infected. Using a little blackmail, you secure a nice hefty sum for assassination of the tyrant ruling the adjoining subterranean caves. However, in a (feeble) attempt to withstand the invasion, the occupants of the base did their best to seal off the caves, so access will not be easy... >:-> Additional Credits to : Matt Tagliaferri for DoomCAD Olivier Montanuy for Wintex id software for Doom ================================================================ * Play Information * Episode and Level # : E2M8 Use doom -file hives.wad to start doom HOW TO PLAY IT --------> begin a new game (any episode), and type IDCLEV28 to warp to the level. Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes, but not tested Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, but not tested Difficulty Settings : Yes New Sounds : No New Graphics : No New Music : No Demos Replaced : None * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Editor(s) used : DoomCAD 6.1, Wintex 4.3 Known Bugs : An irritating one in the caves, if I fix it, it just comes back somewhere else. SEE BELOW for possible Doom 1.2 bug * ---------------------THE DOOM 1.2 BUG------------------------ * I have "The Ultimate Doom", and I have not tested this level on an earlier version (or Doom ][ for that matter). One of the sectors (the biggest one) is larger than 1023 units, which DoomCAD tells me is the limit for Doom 1.2, although it (seems to) work on higher versions. If Doom crashes on you, then you should use the file LowHives.WAD instead, which will not give you the same problem, but loses some of the effect when you fall. When you reach it, SAVE, and then fall off, it's worth it if you are using Hives.wad :) ADDENDUM: Do not fall off the ledge backwards in hives.wad, or Doom (probably any version) will quit to DOS with a Z_MapPlane error. * ------------------------------------------------------------- * * If you like this WAD * This product is thankmeware. You may distribute it as described below in the legal bit, but you are encouraged to thank me if you like it. If you do not like it, there is no obligation to thank me. Remember, it is the thanks wad authors get which encourages them to create more wads. I have made other wads, but they may or may not have been put on this site, depending on whether or not I, and the cdrom.com people think they are any good. Even if I do release them, I will probably have to change some of the names, which have already been used by other authors ;-( ocatagons.wad - my first ever WAD, very small, pointless, too hard, it was full of bugs until I recently fixed them, ABIT IT5H cross.wad -my second WAD, still not too good, but better than no. 1 temple.wad - much better than previous two WADS, but ridiculously difficult to find the secret exit. village.wad - ranks close to hives.wad, my most recent creation, all bugs ironed out, if I release any more, this will be the next. secret.wad -took me only four hours, a bit cheesy, but no bugs or anything. Alternatively, I may do another three and make a full episode, which is what I originally intended to do. I am not sure if people prefer to play nine single levels, or a whole episode. Hives was intended to be the last one, which is why it is set as E2M8. It does not work properly if set to anything else. * Copyright / Permissions * Authors MAY ASK ME if they can use this level as a base to build additional levels.
