================================================================ Title : The Kicker! Filename : BDS1.WAD Author : Barry D. Sebastian Email Address : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : Wife detests DOOM...Live in Cincinnati, Ohio... Probably will never grow up... Description : If you love the game, you'll want to add this WAD to your collection! A lot of thought and time went into it's design, and I hope you'll enjoy it. Every monster EXCEPT the Spiderdemon makes an appearance, and every weapon EXCEPT the BFG9000 is available - with ample ammo (you'll need it!). The level has 4 main areas: The Red Room (I recommend blasting the Baron in the dark balcony before leaving with the Blue Skull key); The huge parapet area (patiently pick away at the Cyberdemon from the ground level where the Red Skull key is (you'll see!) - then go up and collect the goodies...); The computer room, where the chainsaw works nicely on the Demons - and you can transport to a "challenge" that will net you the Yellow Skull key; --->and if you choose NOT to take the first EXIT - you can transport to the 4th area, "The Tiered Section". This last section was a real challenge to make - 'DEU' to it's size, and many 2-sided linedefs, some strategically located walls were necessary to eliminate some HOM effects. If you can make it through alive to the 2nd switch on the bottom tier, you'll have to move quickly to get to the 'door' out before it closes (watch for the Sargents and Imps). If you find yourself low on ammo and health, there is a teleporter that will take you back to the top of this section to 'scavenge'. Finally, the EXIT at the top of the elevator will take you to game two's secret level. If you've never been there before - have fun!! (:->) This is a large level, and my best advice is to KEEP MOVING! The more you play it, the more fun it becomes (you'll find a few shortcuts & secrets). Deathmatch is a trip, especially if you have a friend who's style you are familiar with (I've only tried this with 2-man). I recommend a lower difficulty level with D-M. If you want to watch me go through this level and show you MOST of the secrets, play the demo I've included. Assuming you have unzipped BDS1.exe into your DOOM directory... From the DOOM directory type: doom -file bds1.wad -devparm -playdemo bds1 To PLAY this level: From the DOOM directory type: doom -file BDS1.wad ,and choose Shores of Hell at a difficulty level of your choice... Just for the Shores-of-Hell-of-it, I've included a bunch of .BMP file snap shots that are neat to use as wallpaper in Windows (or in a screensaver - if you have the right kind). You can "view" them with any graphics viewer, i.e. cshow...
