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!

                          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

* How to use this WAD *

UnZip WAOTD.ZIP and put WAOTD.WAD into your DOOM2 sub-directory.
At the DOS prompt type:
                         DOOM2 -FILE WAOTD.WAD 

and press enter; select your difficulty level and begin. 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!
