Description:    A great DeathMatch level.

This level is specifically designed for DEATHMATCH play.
If you want to experience the ultimate DeathMatch level
try MEGADETH by this author. It's the best available!

DETHSTAR incorporates the use of enhanced weapons.

Laser sights and MegaViolence mode are independently

Story:          You decide you've had enough of this fighting lark and
accept the demons' invitation to tea and cream cakes aboard
the Dethstar. Unfortunately, there's no Earl Grey left so
you get a bit annoyed... 

This will be your toughest mission yet and you will have
Earth's most advanced weaponry available to you: guns with
laser sights, silencers and enhanced firepower!

Gameplay:       DETHSTAR is designed solely for deathmatches although all
other modes are supported.

Weapons:        DETHSTAR is an assassination mission and therefore gives
you access to enhanced weapons. These incorporate laser
sights for the pistol, shotgun and chaingun. (Laser
sights are optional.)

The laser sights are not used for the rocket launcher,
plasma rifle and BFG9000 because these weapons have a blast
radius and do not need precise aiming.

The laser sights will auto-dim when you enter darkened areas
to avoid giving your position away  :))

Like with the real thing, if you keep the trigger down on
the pistol, shots will tend to wander after the first one.
It is best to release the trigger after each shot. This also
applies to the chaingun. Short controlled bursts of fire are
most effective.

For super-enhanced weapons, try MegaViolence mode.

Mode:           MegaViolence mode only operates with Doom V 1.2. You must also
ensure you have at least 581 Kb free on your hard disc for the
installation program to create a backup of DOOM.EXE. This mode 
gives you access to enhanced super-weapons :))

In this mode, you have enhanced hand to hand combat, a quick
-fire auto-pistol, a rapid re-load shotgun, a 2200 rounds
per minute chaingun, a rapid re-load rocket launcher firing
super high explosive ammo, a fast-fire plasma gun and a
rapid-fire BFG9000.

To switch the laser sights off, type "LASEROFF" at
the DOS prompt.

space). This will work for all Doom levels. To

* Compatibility *This version 1.1 is compatible with the LASER and
MEGAVIOLENCE files packed with MEGADETH V 2.4 and
V 2.4a.

* Play Guide *
This WAD should not be judged by playing it in
single player or cooperative modes, but if you
insist on playing it this way then try skill
level 4.

For an extremely violent game, use MegaViolence
mode. However, this mode significantly reduces
the strategy element of the game.
