Description             : A 4 level episode starting at e3m1 and finishing at
                          e3m8.  Unlike CPHOBOS, all of the secrets here
                          have better hints to their existance. This episode
                          has extensive new graphics and is built to look
                          just like a mall with a new monster. Uses DeHackEd
                          for new effects such as shooting computers or 
                          windows, the new monster and new text. 
                          For you deathmatch players, I have put in a button
                          on level 3 that will take you back to level 2 for a 
                          2 level cycle that goes until you are ready to
                          finish. Then just go to the normal exit.

                          Unless people insist, this is probably my last
                          episode/levels for Doom. Let me know what you

* Instructions for playing *

To play, you must have Doom v1.666 registered.  Run SETUPTM in the same
directory as your Doom files so it can expand the sprite graphics. The
episode will take a total of 5 megs when SETUPTM is finished.

                **Note: You must run SETUPTM or Doom will crash!

Then enter TMALL to play single player. Select episode 3.

You may use other commands with TMALL:

        tmall -skill 5 -episode 3
        tmall -skill 2 -warp 3 1

For multi-player, you may edit the tmall.bat file so it will load sersetup
or ipxsetup as needed.

The batch file will auto-backup your doom.exe file to edit it. Your old
file is restored when done. For extra safety, you may wish to keep a copy
of doom.exe safely tucked away where it is handy. 

If installation was successful, you should see a sign on the Red Bar after
"DOOM startup v1.666" that reads, "Loading Terror Mall"
Then after you open the door to your weapons van, you should see a few
demons dressed in black wearing helmets next to some nice looking trees 
toting shotguns. (No, the trees don't have shotguns!) ;>

*Note: I don't recommend playing the other episodes while this patch is

The Story:

The local police commissioner has reported to the military that there are
strange happenings at Central Mall.  Investigations have uncovered a 
take-over by a group of horrible demons who are attacking from beneath the
mall! These demons have been destroying this mall and stealing just about
everything and blockading many stores with large demonic structures.

Your job is to find out the source of their invasion and stop it while
destroying any demon that gets in your way!

Level 1:  Central Mall
You start out in the back of your Weapons Van which has backed up directly
into the mall doors breaking them in the process. Players 2 and 4 are in a 
different van at the other end of the mall.  Each pair of players start
out with a different key to their van so that the other players will have
to use co-operation if they want to let you in their van for their ammo.

This level isn't large but is heavily detailed, and it is also open so you 
Deathmatch Players should find each other very quickly. You can also
hear just about anything that happens in the mall.
Originally, the level was planned to be a little larger, but I scaled it 
down so the game play won't slow down when going down the main hall. (Yes,
it was even slowing down on Pentiums!)  I try to make my levels play 
smoothly at full screen on a 486DX2-66 or greater. Play skill 3 if you are
bothered by slow down on your machine. It has the same monsters as UV, but
has very little decoration objects. I don't know how much it actually helps,
but give it a try.

You will need to find one secret in order to exit. If you can't figure out 
how to grab the yellow keycard, the hint lies next to it.

Level 2:  Parking Garage
Here you are on the bottom level of the mall in the partially underground
parking garage. This is basically a fast action battle that should be
fun for you Deathmatch Players.  There are a few stores for you to browse
on this bottom story. Your job is to find out how the demons are getting
in and go after them! Blow away the windows to get through!

This level is 100% fair for Deathmatch. Each player starts with a shotgun and
equal ammo. You will never reappear next to an opponent. (You can't get shot 
at the start locations) The opponents will not be able to gaurd any 
deathmatch starting areas very easily since there is more than one way into 
the fighting area for every starting position. You also get 6 Deathmatch 
starts!  Half the level is open for arena style play and half is tight 
corners for surprises!

Level 3:  The Underworld
You seem to be on the edge of Hell itself! Your job is to destroy the monster
teleporter! (Close the door to block the generator's power.)  This level also 
uses the fair deathmatch starts.

There is one puzzle involving 2 elevators. Don't try to get up if someone
is hot on your tail! Unless you are really fast!

Deathmatch Players:  To go back to level 2, use the red button next to
the normal exit. This way you can keep your deathmatch going for as long
as you want. When you are ready for the last level, go to the normal exit
on this level.  There is a sign next to the button that reads, "Deathmatch.
To level 2" To find it, drop down the narrow pit before the normal end room.
It is a double button, so you will be sure to recognize that this is not the
normal exit. Yes, you crazy single players could use it too.

Music: "Demon Horde"  copyright 1994, Ross Warren
Level 4:  Terror Mall!
You're back in the main floor of the mall and things have changed!  It
looks like Hell is erupting through the ground itself!  Now it is time to
put an end to those demons that you trapped on our side of the door!
