================================================================ Title : UACPEN.WAD Author : The Mad Hacker Email Address : Compuserve 71247,1471 (Bob Kuntz) Additional Credits : Testers Darin' Lowe, Meredeath Lumbrazo, Erik Folley Raphael Quinet & Brendon J Wyber for the DEU editor Colin Reed for the BSP utility The Story: You did the job, cleaned out the Shores of Hell and the Inferno. We put away the worst of the survivors in our "escape proof" high security UAC prison. However, last month we received this transmission from the prison warden: .. under attack for weeks but we held them off until .. <garbled> .. the hellspawn came up from UNDER the west cell block. My God, they overran the entire compound like a swarm of .. <garbled> .. will try to ... <end of transmission> We have sent in dozens of our best troops, but none have returned. Last week we received this transmission from the new "warden": Please send more troops. We need the recruits. Stop by anytime, and see the "modifications" we've made. We'll do lunch. Don't worry about imposing -- we'll cook you up whatever is "lying around" ... You mission is to penetrate and secure the prison compound, and find the entrance to the underground. We can give you little advice, but we know the you will need to gain access to the control room to unlock the cell blocks. The control room complex is gaurded by a series of switches, and you will need the Blue Key to even begin breaking the defenses. We believe the new "warden" has the Blue Key hidden in his office. Your first objective, then, is to penetrate the prison administrative center, and find the warden's office. It will be impossible to perform a frontal assault, but we know the warden has a private "escape hatch" out of his office. This, we think, will be your way in. After that, you're on your own. If you can secure the prison and open the entrance to the underground, your next mission is to descend to the command center of the hellspawn. Good luck. Additional Comments: This is a BIG wad, and really requires a 486 to run acceptably. Try running with graphics detail set to LOW (I like the smoother animation more even on my 66 mhz DX2). Looks best with with no gamma correction, and plays best on ultra-violent. Sure, you can play on Hurt Me Plenty, but maybe you should be playing Yoshi's Safari instead of DOOM! ;-) Under Doom 1.2, the wad *barely* saves without crashing on Ultra-Violence, and may crash if you save it right after starting the level (before you have picked up a few "things"). The limit to a save game seems to be 128,000 bytes, and the save file size at startup on ultra-violence is 127,897. I would have liked to put a few more "things" in the level, but I felt being able to save (at least on single player) was important. Supposedly this save glitch is fixed in Doom 1.5. Cooperative play requires *cooperation*. There are a lot more "dudes" on multi-player (and more ammo). Saving will probably not work because of the extra "things". The teleporter pedestal in the middle of the courtyard comes into play only during multi-player operation. I really have no idea if the Doomer community will like this level, so I welcome any feedback, positive or negative. I'm working on Part 2, called "Descent", which will pick up right where this mission leaves off. Let me know if I should bother. ================================================================ * Play Information * Episode and Level # : E2M5 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, but not designed for deathmatch (too large) Difficulty Settings : Yes New Sounds : No New Graphics : No Demos Replaced : None * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Build Time : Many moons Editor(s) used : DEU 5.1, DEU 5.2 GCC, BSP12X, and Reject 1.0 Known Bugs : Very minor "Hall of Mirrors" in Pit area - (does not come into play).
