                          Lovinger Outpost for Doom 2 or MBF

Date Finished           : October 1999

Chief Author            : Dan Patanella
(except for MAP06)

Email Address           : <email removed>

Misc. Author Info       : Creator of Gatchaman Doom
                          Maintainer of "Animation - American and Japanese"

Additional Creators     : Captain Zen (for MAP06)
                          Rez (for major design suggestion in several levels)
                          Len Pitre (for working the usual Doom miracles!)
                          Iikka Kerrnen (for the IKATEX graphics)

Required Engine: Doom2 (registered) or MBF. Any of the various
  offspring of Boom should also work nicely, although
  Lovinger hasn't been tested in them.

Installation Notes: If you want to play the WAD using Doom2, copy
  all files to your Doom2 directory and run
                          LOV_INS.BAT. After which, you simply type LOVD2
  at the command line to run. If you want to play the
  WAD using MBF, copy all files to your MBF directory
                          and type "mbf -file lovinger lovespr -deh lovedeh"
                          to run. Really, it's that simple! :D

Description             : The Lovinger Outpost is a series of adventures
                          on an alien world. These levels range from
                          green marble fortresses, bleached sandstone
                          aquaducts, the hollowed-out innards of a volcano,
                          a fiendishly designed fortress near the end, and
                          what's left of a once-peaceful UAC retreat in the
                          woods. Each level is mid-sized, and some of them
                          should be especially challenging in deathmatch.

                          Your mission: stay alive while the nasty demonspawn
                          try to hunt you down!

                          Enjoy the nice scenery and the new graphics!

Additional Credits to   : Len, Rez, Captain Zen, and I all playtested the
                          levels. Aside from that, Rez contributed mightily
                          to the conception of several of the Aquaduct-style
                          levels. Captain Zen jumpstarted everyone's
                          creativity when he joined the project and donated
                          an earlier version of his "Blunder Lodge," including
                          a couple of neat graphics. The good Cap'n also
                          organized our mailing list. And Len was not only the
                          alpha playtester, and contributor of great ideas,
                          but was also the glue that held our motley crew
                          together. Without the above team, none of the levels in
                          this package would be as fun as they are. If you
                          really liked any of this package, it's probably
                          because they did a great job at turning a rough
                          idea into a nice series of levels. Kudos to Rez,
                          Len, and Captain Zen!

  Iikka Kerrnen created the IKATEX graphics that pop
  up from time to time. The seasoned Doomer will
  recognize these immediately. Aside from those, and
  Captain Zen's Blunder Lodge animations, all new
  graphics were my work, with alterations suggested
  by Rez and Len.

                          Raven for the Hexen tree graphics and sounds.

Noncontributing Credits : Special thanks goes out to everyone who has written
                          me about my previous levels. Thank you for your
                          advice, praise, and constructive criticism. 

  There are all those stories about the spiders at
                          TJ's cottage that inspired the initial levels of
  this multipak. :)
                          Special thanks also goes out to Mo. You know who
                          you are, and why I'm proud of you! :)

                          Although I don't get even one red penny for plugging
                          the following albums (not even a lousy autographed
                          photo even!) I may as well tell you that my
                          soundtrack for editing these levels included the
                          Mermen's "Glorious Euphoria," the Pulp Fiction
                          soundtrack, the Who's "Live at the Isle of Wight,"
                          "Nuggets Volume One" from Rhino Records and, gasp,
                          various J-pop.

Thought of the Day      : Is it just me or does it sound like Britney Spears
                          is doing a Mae West imitation when she sings "Oh
                          Baby Baby" in "One More Time?" :) Hey, she's
                          supposed to like Doom2, so I'll cut the kid some
                          slack. :)
