Widowmaker
Description
Clues discovered at Gates of Anguish and Despair base have led you to the corporate headquarters and genetics labs of UAC. The evil infestation has reached even here. You enter an otherwise unguarded building a take the elevator to the upper floor. Things seem quiet, soft music is playing and there is a familiar guard outside the elevator door. Hmm, they have changed the decor since the last time you were here. You look over at the Reception Desk, and spot the Imps! Things are going to get tough. But you're the best, heh? Nothing is going to stop you from your mission, not some pesky little Imp! Play it cool, ammo and healing are in short supply (this is corporate life). Monsters abound, and have many places to hide. They may come out to find you, so watch your back. Please E-Mail me with your comments on CIS. Your comments go a long toward improving my 'work'.

Colin Reed for the BSP utility
John A Warren for his inspiration and patience 
Gary Thomas for believing that a good game requires 
thought and of course, those great people at id, 
without which we would not have the pleasure to play 
DOOM.
I would like to thank those great people on CIS for 
their help and inspirations.

Instructions          : Put WIDOWMKR.WAD and WIDOWMKR.BAT in your DOOM 
directory, then run the batch file by typing 
'WIDOWMKR'.  This takes you right into it, skipping 
the intro stuff, chooses "Hurt Me Plenty" skill, and 
jumps right into the level. Modify the batch file 
with -skill # as you please. Otherwise, choose New 
Game, Shores of Hell, and the skill level you prefer 
and play thru as normal. Widow Maker is an E2M4 
level. It can be played alone, or in conjunction 
with your favorite levels.

Description

After your return from Hell and a nice 6 month vacation, you received
an urgent message from Union Aerospace Corporation today.  They started  
picking up strange signals from an island (Widowmaker) on the other side
of Deimos recently.  It seems that a few of the inhabitants from Deimos
Lab escaped before you were able to get them.  

You were happy to help in any way that you could, but it seems that your
baggage ended up on Venus while you landed on Mars to begin your mission.
You almost waited, but you entered their lair before with only a pistol.
And it's such a small island.  How hard could it be?

NOTE:  I asked id about creating a CD with all the files from
infant2.sphs.indiana.edu on it.  They did not give me permission
to do so.  They say that they do not want people commercially
exploiting PWAD author's efforts whether the above statement was
included in a PWAD or not.  And their defination of commercial
exploitation is anything more than free.

I think this attitude (though they have the right intentions) is
absolutely stupid.  And if you think so as well, drop them a line
and let them know.  Nor do I believe that they really have any power
to stop such a CD from being sold.  After all, their only connection
to our PWAD's is that their game can utilitize the files.  Just
like Microsoft can't tell me what I can or can't do with Word files.
I just don't want them to not include the ability to run custom built
levels in future games because people don't respect their wishes.

Well, enough of my soapbox.  If someone does make such a CD, you DO
have my permission as stated above.
