========================================================================= NOTE: YOU NEED BOOM TO PLAY THIS!!! (BUT, THIS ADOON SUPPOSEDLY WORKS WITH ANY SOURCE PORT THAT PREVENTS SAVE BUFFER OVERRUNS AND VISPLANE OVERFLOWS.) ========================================================================= Title : Dark Castle Filenames : Dark_C.wad, Dark_C.bat, Dark_C.txt (the one you're reading) Author: Virgil the Doom Poet Description : A 3-level miniwad for Doom2 with all new music and graphics. Play it to find out more. It is highly unlikely that this addon should disappoint you. Oh, and don't be a chicken. Play it on Ultra Violence. Story: : Fine, since this is more than one level, I'll tell you a story to get you into a medieval-type mood. You don't have to read this. You were born in 2579 A.D. and were trained to become a soldier since your childhood. In 2590 A.D. a way to travel in time was invented. The hellspawn ravaged the earth for 500 long years now and the time machine was invented to go back in time and wipe them out. Instead, the hellspawn gained control of the lab where the time machine resided. All of the army went back into the Medieval age, hoping to destroy the humans and thus get back into a humanless future. You were sent back in to stop the hellspawn. As you reapeared on an uncorrupt Earth in the year 1100, you froze in silence. The demons it seemed, have already constructed a castle and were starting conquest of the nearby villages. It is time take out the trash... The hard way... There! That it. Now go and play this addon. Additional Credits to : All the guys who made the doom editing utilities, ID Software, and various PWAD makers out there for some of the graphic and music resources (you know who you are) ========================================================================= * Play Information * Engine : BOOM (Not tested with any other source ports) Episode and level # : MAP01 - MAP03 Single Player : Yes! Go play it already! Cooperative 2-4 Player : No, but the starts are there. Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes. Skill 5 old deathmatch 1 on 1 with the -nomonsters parameter. Difficulty Settings : Yes, but I STRONGLY recommend Ultra-Violence. New Sounds : Yes. I "eliminated" one annoying little sound... New Graphics : Yes. A whole bunch of them. Some are mine and some are from other PWADs. (see below for details) Demos Replaced : Yes. All three. All are recorded by me. Loading Procedure : Unzip the zip file (Dark_C.zip) into the directory that has BOOM and the doom2 wad (doom2.wad). The batch file (Dark_C.bat) will take care of it. Just run the batch file. * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Editor(s) used : DMapEdit, NWT for music changes, & Dmgraph for graphics. Known Bugs : None (If you find any, let me know) ========================================================================= *Details about the new graphics* Well, first of all, all the graphics are mine, except the flats and wall textures, which belong to the gothicdm and gothic2 wad files. (The only exceptions are the completely black and the completely white wall textures.) Also, levels 1 and 2 have my original music compositions. If you want to use the level1 and level2 music from this wad, GIVE ME FULL CREDIT. The other music, though, is not mine and is from the various MIDI archives and PWADs out there. The sky texture is a mixture of the sky of doom's first episode and Gothicdm's starry, bluish sky. Having said all this, I hope NOONE will have a problem with where the stuff in this wad came from. ========================================================================= * Copyright / Permissions * Authors MAY NOT use these levels as a base to build additional levels or make profit with them. Don't even ask, either. If you want to make a level, make it yourself, since all doomers hunger for originality in PWADs. You MAY distribute this WAD (and please, PLEEZE (!) do), provided you include these files, with no modifications. You may distribute these files in any electronic format (BBS, Diskette, CD, etc) as long as you include these files intact without any modifications. ========================================================================== ========================================================================== = * My website is at: * = = = =http://www.geocities.com/jomgobar2 (has frames) = = = =OR AT: = = = =http://www.geocities.com/Virgil_32_0 (gives you a choice of frames or = = non-frames) = = = ========================================================================= = = =send comments (and abuse :)) to me at: = =<email removed> = = = ==========================================================================
