Misc. Author Info       : I've built many WADs, which have been
                          some of the best on the Internet. I
                          REALLY want to get my hands on Quake
                          editing tools as soon as they come out.

Other WADs by Author    : I'm too lazy to list all of them...

                          Water Flood & Gorilla Gore II
                          Get Your Gun!

                          Deathmatch by Mike
                          Another Heretic Cathedral (Shareware)
                          DF Rifle Patch.
                          Heretic Textures for DOOM II.
                          Houses 1.4.
                          Silhouettes of Phobos.

                          ...Again, I wrote a lot more, but a
                          few were compilations and updates of
                          other ones (i.e. Houses 1.3).

Upcoming by Author      : You might find levels for Quake by
                          me later on (I'll be patient with
                          the BSP builder).

* WAD Description *

Brief Description       : If you can't find anyone to DM with,
                          then this is for you. Now you don't
                          need a modem or network to play
Outline Description     : + Uses monsters changed into players
                            as your opponents. There may be
                            even more than four players at a
                          + DeathMatch levels rigged up specifically
                            for this. Some were made by me.
                          + A status bar made by myself using
                            a crappy paint program.
                          + All you have to do is unzip this and
                            type COMPDM.
                          + A lot of fun!
WAD Info in More Detail : About two weeks ago, I downloaded a
                          Computer DeathMatch patch. It was sort
                          of buggy (Players got stuck in slop
                          frames and stuff). So I decided to
                          fix it up and then give it some better
                          levels. So, here it is.
What's Changed From     : + Many player characteristics changed,
Original COMP-DM?           such as frame fixes. They can now
                            fall off of ledges and you cannot
                            sneak up behind them, like you
                            would a monster. These changes make
                            it more fun and realistic.
                          + New levels. Some I made (My brother
                            made one, too). Some others. The point
                            is that they're good.
                          + Contains a DEH instead of an EXE (Having
                            an EXE is not a good idea). So if you end
                            up getting this instead of Immortal's
                            Computer DeathMatch, that is why.
                          + An Easy Mode for those who aren't DOOM
                            Champions, or just have a slow computer
                            which doesn't allow them to be really
How It Works            : DOOM is tricked into 1-player deathmatch
                          with monsters in nightmare skill level,
                          so their aim is better and they keep
                          coming back.

* Play Information *

Game                    : DOOM II
Level(s) Replaced       : MAP01 - MAP09 
Single Player           : You don't really need to explore these
                          levels first, so don't do it.
Cooperative 2-4 Player  : If you can tell your friends apart from
                          your computer opponents in split-second
Deathmatch 2-4 Player   : Yes. Not just 2-4 players, but 1-4 players.
Difficulty Settings     : No, it's automatically set to nightmare to
                          give your opponents better aim.
New Sounds              : Only to fix BFG guy so you can hear him
                          firing, unlike Immortal's COMP-DM.
New Graphics            : A couple wall textures and a status bar.
New Music               : No, but I changed them around in the DEH.
Demos Replaced          : No. I wish I could, but it won't work.
Other Data Replaced     : The EXE file. (It won't change yours. This
                          comes with a DEH and all the software
                          it needs.)

* Construction *

Base                    : Immortal's Computer DeathMatch 1.6
Main Editor(s) used     : DMapEdit 4.0.11, Deutex 3.6, DeHackEd 3.0
Other Editor(s) used    : NeoPaint 2.2
Build Time              : A couple days.
Known Bugs              : None, but look below.
Other Problems          : Frag counter doesn't work.
                          Plus, don't reset in the middle of a game.
                          If you do, go to your DOOM II directory
                          and type:
                          REN DOOM2.EXE DOOMHACK.EXE
                          REN DOOM2.EX_ DOOM2.EXE
                          _AND_, if you ran Easy Mode, add these lines
                          REN GTT.DEH EASYMODE.DEH
                          GTT.DE_ GTT.DEH
                          Just in case, make a backup of the DOOM II
Future Improvements     : Fix the frag counter, if possible.

* Installation *

Unzip this to your DOOM II directory and you're ready to go. Type GTT
to start. Or type EASYMODE to run Easy Mode.

Required to Have in Dir : DOOM II and the files in the list at the top
                          of this text file.

* Troubleshooting *

Problem: DOOM II crashes when I run this.
Solution: This may have conflicts with computers which already have a
          network. Try removing the lines NE2000 0x61 and LAN from
          GTT.BAT, restart your computer and try again.
