================================================================ Title : The Garden Date Finished: : June 14 1996 Author : J. Brown Mail : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : Enjoys Doom2 more than Duke. Description: The Mission is to find and shutdown the UAC Comm Center. You begin pinned down in the entry room overlooking the Bosses Garden.Stay alive until you are able to move out into the Garden. Even though there is lots of ammo shoot straight and Don't waste it, (e.g. don't use all your rockets & plasma) when other weapons will serve , You will need it later. The same for health , eat it when you need it. Remember where you left it. Experienced players seem to need about 50 to 70 min. to finish the mission. Since its long, we save the game (F2) as each area is secured ?? . If you are playing fast monsters using F3 to load a saved game will crash doom2.Be sure that DOOM2 is restarted with the -FAST parameter. Your shell: DM , D! , etc. can probably do this. You can do it manually, (See Example command line at bottom) Play it however you want to but this wad is intended to be played Ultra Violence , Fast Monsters. You probably will need to learn it on lower vio. levels with slow Monsters before Uv & Fast are possible to do. There is a demo included ( single player , fast, Uv , Standard Guns) Demo note: Doom2 ver. 1.9 only There are large amounts of plasma & rocket ammo for the benefit of those with out a weapons patch. Remember its nightime so don't crank the gamma levels (brightness) levels too far . When looking out into the garden from the entry room windows you should see areas which are flickering from the torch light and the floor of the raised area (with the trees) should look like a green pool table top would appear in torch light. Enjoy ,JB DOOMJESUS sez: " Just play the game with a ( REALISTIC ) guns patch ,like the superb " ROSSGUNS ". Use ultra violence,fast monsters , and don't die or cheat. If you can do these things, even though you have no friends you can still be considered cool and feel safe and secure in the knowledge that you really are better than someone at something and you have my blessing. God help you. Sincerely, DJ " Note: Dehacked 3.0 and Rossguns.deh are inclued for your convenience.
