=========================================================================== Title : Realms of Pain Part 1 v1.5 * FINAL RELEASE * Author : Nick Baker, aka NiGHTMARE Email Address : <email removed> - this will change soon Files included : RlmsPain.TXT - this file RlmsPain.WAD - the main WAD file RPPrv1.GIF - Preview of my 1st new level RPPrv2.GIF - Preview of my 2nd new level RPPrv3.GIF - Preview of my 3rd new level For a quick overview of the levels shown in the GIF files, see the bottom of the file. Description : A WAD file containing 5 new DeathMatch levels plus music and graphics. Each level was designed with a specific theme in mind, and is very detailed. I tried to make them at least as good as the Bloodlands/Grievance levels. Three previous versions, v1.2, v1.3 and v1.4 are available. If you have one of these, delete it. I know you're probably getting tired of downloading versions of Realms of Pain (I'm certainly getting tired of making them), but there were several errors in the 3rd and 5th maps due to a rushed download. I've learned that some of my corridors are a bit cramped, so I've made some changes to the 2nd, 3rd and 4th maps. I've also enhanced the weapons placement on most maps as some people complained that there were too many. A few more new textures, a new title screen + music, new text screen screen music, all by me. This WILL be the last version of Realms of Pain Part 1 by me. . . If there are any more bugs, don't tell me. I'll probably commit suicide <g>. As a bonus, I've included a new level, which I recently fished out from by massive pile of backup disks and went over and radically enhanced. Difficulty settings change the weapons : Skill 1 : Double ammo, no Plasma or BFG Skill 2 : Normal ammo, no Plasma or BFG Skill 3 : Set up for -Altdeath (respawning stuff) Skill 4 : Normal ammo, all weapons Skill 5 : Double ammo, all weapons Other files by authors : I haven't heard anything from TNT, so I'll just go ahead and make a Realms of Pain Part 2. I've included some GIFs of the first three levels. Check out the Mission : DooM preview, MssnPrv.ZIP, available in the CIS Action Games Forum. Sorry about not uploading to FTP.CDROM.COM (I forgot). I'll release a two level preview sometime to apologise ;) Misc. Author Info : I've been making levels for a while now, but have never released them as I haven't had access to the internet until recently. I'm still busy making levels, and hope to make Realms of Pain a full 32 level episode someday. I'd really appreciate a co-author or two though. Alternatively, if you want to hire me for a project, I'm all yours ;) In case you're wondering why I seem to be releasing WADs so often, I'm currently unemployed. When I get a job (soon?) my levels will come out a bit more slowly. But not TOO slowly ;) The Realms of Pain and Mission : Doom series might be delayed awhile. Looks like I've been chosen for a couple of projects. . . My Team TNT application is still being handled. . . The levels : Note : Weapon numbers are those in UV Level : 01 Name : Abattoir Description : This place contains plenty of blood. A main room contains four teleporters that'll take you around the level. Weapons : 5 Shotguns, 2 Super Shotguns, 3 Chainguns, 1 Rocket Launcher, 1 Chainsaw, 1 BFG Level : 02 Name : Cursed Halls Description : A small main hall with corridors all around. The BFG is in plain view, but how can you get at it? Weapons : 2 Shotguns, 1 Super Shotgun, 2 Chainguns, 1 Rocket Launcher, 1 Plasma Gun, 1 Chainsaw, 1 BFG Level : 03 Name : Mineshaft Description : A beautifully detailed level originally inspired by Dennis Moeller's DooM conversion of one of the Quake Test levels. Its not too similar though. Weapons : 2 Shotguns, 1 Super Shotgun, 2 Chainguns, 1 Rocket Launcher, 1 Plasma Gun, 1 Chainsaw Level : 04 Name : House of Death Description : A tribute to the fantastic Unreal, Grievance Map 01 by Charles Cox. Weapons : 3 Shotguns, 2 Super Shotguns, 3 Chainguns, 1 Rocket Launcher, 1 Plasma Gun, 1 Chainsaw, 1 BFG Level : 05 Name : Stronghold Description : A small building with several tunnels. A good level for snipers. Weapons : 2 Shotguns, 2 Super Shotguns, 2 Chainguns, 2 Rocket Launcher, 1 Plasma Gun, 1 Chainsaw Level : 06 (new in v1.5) Name : The Catacombs Description : Includes a torture chamber complete with chainsaw! This level is actually the oldest of the six, and has gone through four different different design stages over about a year. Parts of it are inspired by Map 05 Matthew Dixon's Amber Extreme. This is also the largest level. Weapons : 3 Shotguns, 2 Super Shotguns, 2 Chainguns, 2 Rocket Launcher, 1 Plasma Gun, 1 BFG, 1 Chainsaw Additional Credits to : ID for DooM ][, the game that will live forever. Team TNT for Bloodlands and Grievance. These originally inspired me to make Realms of Pain. Daniel Baker for helping to test the levels. Rich Nagel of Team TNT and the CIS Action Games Forum for uploading help - thanks ;) Rich will also upload my stuff to the CIS Action Games Forum when I leave CompuServe. All the guys on CIS who love these levels so much! Lisa Moore for support. Matthew Dixon for e-mailing me about a bug, letting me know about the seriously excellent looking GothicDM, being the first person to comment on the gameplay ("the halls are too narrow") and generally being a cool guy. Adelusion for his e-mails. It really is an ego boost when someone as famous and excellent as him likes your levels. Mad Pup for telling me about a "slime trail" on Map 05. M. Scott Harlan for support and for (hopefully) getting me involved in a project. . . Chris Christenson for support, for suggesting a new sky (didn't look that good though) and for uploading this to AOL NiN for inspiration for the title music. Orbital, the Chemical Brothers, the Future Sound of London and the Prodigy for something to listen to whilst making the levels. =========================================================================== * Play Information * Map # : Map 01 - Map 06 Single Player : Yes (to check the levels out first) Cooperative 2-4 Player : No (no-one ever, ever plays this way) Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes!!!

Vannatta and B. Weldon 5) The Cabal series by Sverre Andre Kvernmo * Realms of Pain Part 2 GIF files * RPPrv1.GIF - Abandoned Temple Completely different than my other levels. There is a lot of green, gothic style textures everywhere. The place has been abandoned for sometime, so its starting to fall apart. . . RPPrv2.GIF - Oubliette This a small sewer system. Don't worry though, it doesn't have a lot of that useless green brick sewer texture everywhere. These are the Realms of Pain sewers, after all. . . RPPrv3.GIF - Unholy Shrine An arena style level. A BFG lies in the shrine as an offering to the dark gods, and they get angry when someone steals it. . .
