Description
This DOOM2, level 1 PWAD is the net result of playing and studying dozens of other levels. I incorporated all my favorite tricks and traps into this one, three key level. WAOTD.WAD is designed as a mini-game, taking you from pistol to BFG 9000. All the bad guys are here as well as just enough power-ups and ammo to get you through the level. One of the frustrating aspects of this level is that each goal -- ending, keys, etc. are in plain sight -- but you have to deduce how to "get there from here" while fighting off the strategically place enemies. You need to be observant as well as vigilant, and there is a maze problem that will challenge you too. I have included a demo file, HOW2.LMP, that shows the entire level played without cheating. It took me over 17 minutes to make it, and I know all the tricks! To view it be sure that WAOTD.WAD and HOW2.LMP are both unzipped into your DOOM2 sub-directory. Then use the following DOS command: doom2 -file WAOTD.WAD -playdemo how2 This level should provide you with many hours of intense action! Additional Credits to My kids, Megan, Joe, Mike and Steven who put in a lot of test-play time and helped me root out the bugs. I think we got them all. I will say that most of the "bugs" turned out to be problems with the DoomCad node builder, because after processing the wad with WARM 1.3 they disappeared.

                          from pistol to BFG 9000.  All the bad guys are here
                          as well as just enough power-ups and ammo to get
                          you through the level.  One of the frustrating
                          aspects of this level is that each goal -- ending,
                          keys, etc. are in plain sight -- but you have to
                          deduce how to "get there from here" while fighting
                          off the strategically place enemies.  You need to
                          be observant as well as vigilant, and there is
                          a maze problem that will challenge you too.

                          I have included a demo file, HOW2.LMP, that shows
                          the entire level played without cheating.  It took

                          This level should provide you with many hours of

UnZip WAOTD.ZIP and put WAOTD.WAD into your DOOM2 sub-directory.
At the DOS prompt type:
 
                         DOOM2 -FILE WAOTD.WAD 

and press enter; select your difficulty level and begin. I recommend you 
set your gamma correction, (F11 key), to as low a setting as you're 
comfortable with to keep with the spirit of the level! This WILL NOT 
permanently modify your game.  It will only temporarily replace your level 1 
with the WAOTD level.  Enjoy!
