Misc. Author Info       : Remember Waco.  20X the number of deaths at
                          Kent State, including women and children.
                          The FBI and BATF should be disbanded for these
                          atrocities and Janet Reno, Louis Freeh and
                          Bill Clinton should face criminal charges.
                          Please see
                          for more Waco info.

Description             : One awful day, the misguided management at
                          your high-paying UAC desk job decides it would
be a good idea to replace all the SGI Unix workstations with Apple Macs.
You refuse to cooperate and soon your manager informs you that your
services will no longer be required at UAC.

Like any red-blooded American, after weeks or months of brooding on this
indignity, you determine that your only recourse is to grab your gun and
as much ammo as you can carry, stroll into your former workplace and
TAKE OUT AS MANY OF THEM AS YOU CAN before they get you.

You phone your buddy up to warn him.  "Better take the day off Monday in
case something terrible happens."  "Huh, what do you mean?  What could
happen?" "Just take the day off, do it!"

The day arrives.  Getting an elevator to yourself, you pull out your
trusty Glock on the way up.  Funny, there didn't seem to be the usual
number of people coming and going in the lobby.  And what about all
those black vans parked outside and all the black helicopters buzzing
around. Could your buddy have squealed?  Nah...

The elevator door opens.  AGGHH!! The building is crawling with Federal
Law Enforcement agents, the same Gestapo-like goons responsible for the
death of Vicky Weaver and the Waco massacre!  The elevators are locked!
Barricades have fallen into place in the stairways!  The building is
surrounded by machine gun nests!  The heavily armed Feds have plastered
Clinton posters everywhere!  Can you show these guys that an armed and
desperate psycho is not so easy to kill as all those peaceful,
law-abiding civilians including women and children?  Can you blast a
path to freedom?

                        New ANIMATED textures: movie of Branch

                                "raging demagogue" animation,
                                Much more!!!
                        Now featuring a DISGRUNTLED demo.  Do you find
                                E1M1 in Ultraviolent impossibly hard?
                                This demo reveals the secrets that
                                make completing this level straightforward.
                        Bug fix: DISGINST.BAT referred to the file
                                disgrun2.wad; changed to disgrun4.wad.
                                Also, the automatically generated
                                batch file DISGRUNT.BAT no longer
                                sets the skill level and warps you
                                straight to E1M1, thus you get to see
                                the cool title screen and demos.

Installing DISGRUNT:  Go to your doom directory and extract the files
using PKUNZIP:

    pkunzip disgrun4.zip

For maximum white-knuckle enjoyment, you will want to perform the
graphics sprite changes.  

The install batch file is called DISGINST.BAT.  Run this, and it will
append the sprites from your DOOM.WAD file to the file DISGSPR.WAD
yielding a new DISGSPR.WAD containing all the sprites DOOM needs to run.
Your DOOM.EXE and DOOM.WAD will not be altered.  DISGINST.BAT creates
two other batch files, DISGRUNT.BAT (to play) and UNINSTAL.BAT (zaps the
2+ MB DISGSPR.WAD back to its original 250K size).  You now need to add
both DISGSPR.WAD and DISGRUN4.WAD on the doom command line; see
DISGRUNT.BAT for an example.

The sprite changes are:

    barrel => Apple Macintosh 
    former human trooper => FBI Rifleman
    former human sergeant => Shotgun-Wielding BATF Agent
    imp => Special Elite Flamethrower-Wielding BATF Agent
        (Due to the heavy load of highly flammable napalm carried
        by this type of BATF agent, a mere bullet or shotgun round
        can cause the same grisly explosion with chunks of flesh 
        flying everywhere usually seen only with a rocket hit).
    demon => Law Enforcement-style German Shepherd

Comments: The first level (E1M1) is modelled after a single floor of a
former employer's building.  For the second level I kept only the basic
floor plan, making everything else up (1 whole level of boring cubicles
and offices is enough!).  Like the first, this is a big level with very
little dead space.  If you are an experienced WAD editor and would like
to participate in the great DISGRUNTLED adventure, ask and I will mail
you a "blank" floor plan with just the elevators and stairwells.

I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who can help me transform the
cyberdemon into a tank.  I would think there'd be a view of a tank from
all eight orthogonal and diagonal directions floating around
somewhere...  A similar 8-way view of Janet Reno's head would be way
cool, picture it pasted onto the torso of a cyberdemon... perhaps with
the FBI logo on its' chest...
