================================================================ Title : Who's afraid of the dark? Filename : WAOTD.WAD Author : Joseph J. Pecoraro Email Address : <email removed> Description : This DOOM2, level 1 PWAD is the net result of playing and studying dozens of other levels. I incorporated all my favorite tricks and traps into this one, three key level. WAOTD.WAD is designed as a mini-game, taking you from pistol to BFG 9000. All the bad guys are here as well as just enough power-ups and ammo to get you through the level. One of the frustrating aspects of this level is that each goal -- ending, keys, etc. are in plain sight -- but you have to deduce how to "get there from here" while fighting off the strategically place enemies. You need to be observant as well as vigilant, and there is a maze problem that will challenge you too. I have included a demo file, HOW2.LMP, that shows the entire level played without cheating. It took me over 17 minutes to make it, and I know all the tricks! To view it be sure that WAOTD.WAD and HOW2.LMP are both unzipped into your DOOM2 sub-directory. Then use the following DOS command: doom2 -file WAOTD.WAD -playdemo how2 This level should provide you with many hours of intense action! Additional Credits to : My kids, Megan, Joe, Mike and Steven who put in a lot of test-play time and helped me root out the bugs. I think we got them all. I will say that most of the "bugs" turned out to be problems with the DoomCad node builder, because after processing the wad with WARM 1.3 they disappeared. ================================================================ * Play Information * Game : DOOM II Episode and Level # : MAP01 [LEVEL 1] Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : No Deathmatch 2-4 Player : No Difficulty Settings : Yes -- all New Sounds : No New Graphics : No New Music : No Demos Provided: : HOW2.LMP * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Editor(s) used : DoomCAD 5.1, WARM 1.3 (a superior external node builder) Known Bugs : none * Copyright / Permissions * Authors MAY use this level as a base to build additional levels.

I recommend you set your gamma correction, (F11 key), to as low a setting as you're comfortable with to keep with the spirit of the level! This WILL NOT permanently modify your game. It will only temporarily replace your level 1 with the WAOTD level. Enjoy!
