// MR.ROCKET'S QUAKE III "The Longest Yard" \\
// __________________________ \\
// (RE-MAKE FOR DooM) \\
Misc. Author Info :
Made to be played using the GZDOOM sourceport.
As like the last version, It's not an exact replica or something, the map
is a bit linear due to the player scale however I tried to keep the playing
field size about the same for good flow, I think it turned out ok.
4 player DM, Q3 tc style map remake for DooM.
USING THE LATEST VERSION OF DOOM2.WAD and
(GZDOOM with IN OPENGL modes only)..

? MRQ3DM_gz.CFG ?
This is so you can Zoom in and out using your Mouse3 mouse button.
Place the MRQ3DM_gz.cfg in your GZDOOM directory, e.g. C:\games\gzdoom
If you want a different key binded, just edit the .cfg. you can rename that mouse3 to the key you might rather use from within the cfg.
The MRQ3DM_gz.CFG can be loaded at game init by adding +exec MRQ3DM_gz.CFG to a gzdoom.exe shortcut.
e.g.: "C:\games\gzdoom\gzdoom.exe" -file MRQ3DM17_gz.wad +exec MRQ3DM_gz.cfg
Or you can simply use the batch files I supplied for you.:)
? BATCH FILES ?
Purpose is purely for convenience of hosting and joining a netgame in the current Gzdoom version with the supplied pwad and cfg.
Aren't you special, not only did I make a map for you to play, I'v also included some batch files to make things even easier for ya.
You can edit the batches to your liking.
*For instance the MRQ3DM17_GZ_join_netgame.bat will need to be edited if you'd like to connect to your buddy.
As default the ip is 0.0.0.0
"Right click on the MRQ3DM17_GZ_join_netgame.bat and edit" to change the ip.
* Contained batch files
Joins the game of the given ip address.
GZDOOM.exe -deathmatch -connect 0.0.0.0 -dup 1 -file MRQ3DM17_gz.wad +exec MRQ3DM_gz.cfg
Hosts the game so you and your buds can deathmatch.
GZDOOM.exe -deathmatch -host -dup 1 -file MRQ3DM17_gz.wad +exec MRQ3DM_gz.cfg
Runs the game in single player mode.
GZDOOM.exe -file MRQ3DM17_gz.wad +exec MRQ3DM_gz.cfg
* Construction *
Base : From scratch, updated for gzdoom, although based on the q3 map "The Longest Yard"
Time : Legacy version was about 10 hours, the update for GZ took about 5.
* Editor(s) used : (Doom Builder 1.67 +acs compiler +glbsp, Wintex 5.0, XWE 1.16) -misc. psp7.2, cooleditpro2.0.
Known Bugs : Jump pads don't always work just right.
* Trouble shooting *
1 : The map's only playable in OpenGL because the "current gzdoom version" doesn't support 3dfloors in software mode. - So run in OGL!!1 :)
2 : If your framerate is poor, turn off dynamic lighting or run at a lower resolution, or both.
3 : If your having problems getting around the map using the jump pads, trying running directly at them instead of a walking Boobie.
