Misc. Author Info : This is the second edition of my first WAD.
Comments via email please, but if you wanna complain please explain your
point: "this sucks" is unhelpful. "This is great" is unhelpful, but sure
Description : If you liked WOODHALL, you're gonna love this.
I've made the whole level much prettier, and aligned all the textures
properly (thanks, Raphael.) No more boring identical rectangular rooms.
I've cut the light levels a bit to reduce the shimmer, and fixed numerous
small map and monster behaviour bugs. The previous version proved too easy,
so there's lots less health and a few extra critters. Favourite playtester
comment is still "_How_ many imps?" If you haven't played WOODHALL, it's
set in a midsized wooden building; I've tried not only to avoid playing
"Collect all the textures", but use only a few to create continuity. It's
low-tech: you're using the shotgun throughout (almost), on sarges, imps,
troopers and the odd demon. It contains several unpleasant surprises. The
use of excessive gamma correction is not recommended: it ruins the looks of
the level, and should prove unnecessary anyway, as the level is well-lit.
It's most fun on first playing, as the surprises ain't so afterwards. There
is no HOM AFAIK, and texture alignment seems to be fine, by and large.
There is no attack in the room you start in.
