Theatre of Doom
Theatre of Doom
All your buddies have gone to the movies and they've taken all the heavy weaponry with them! This level is designed as your average modern day movie theater, with a few twists. Run through your local cinema blasting all those annoying patrons in your way, demanding that they decrease the popcorn prices. Your buddies are in there, dead or alive. Can you find them and the weapons they brought with them? Good luck!
Title : Theatre of Doom Filename : theatre.wad Author : James Wilson (aka Shade) Email Address : Cserve: 73651,2312 Author Notes : The author of this wad works in a movie theater, so getting the chance to wield a shotgun in one of his own design was a form of therapy for him. This was my first level, and this is the Doom 2 conversion. Description : All your buddies have gone to the movies and they've taken all the heavy weaponry with them! This level is designed as your average modern day movie theater, with a few twists. Run through your local cinema blasting all those annoying patrons in your way, demanding that they decrease the popcorn prices. Your buddies are in there, dead or alive. Can you find them and the weapons they brought with them? Good luck! Level notes : This level is big with lots of stuff. It will run slowly on slow computers. I tried to design it to be difficult, but not impossible, with the theory that lots of killin' is a good thing. How do I start this friggin' thing? : For those of you new to this, place the file entitled 'Theatre2.wad' into your Doom2 directory, and then type: 'doom2 -file theatre2.wad' (leave out the quotation marks). This is how you load any external PWAD file (that's what they're called), replacing the 'Theatre2.wad' with whatever the .wad filename is. You will get a message at startup that you have an altered version of Doom 2, but this is not truly the case, as the alterations are not permanent, and go away when you reload Doom 2. Hit 'enter' to get past this message, and then start a normal game, and you are ready to go. ================================================================ * Play Information * Map # : 01 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2/4 Player : Yes (not tested) Deathmatch 2/4 Player : Yes (not tested, but extra objects have been placed with DM in mind.)
