DESPAIR.TXT ================================================================ Title : Widow Maker Filename : WIDOWMKR.WAD Author : David L. Farrington Email Address : CIS: 74242,1270 Misc. Author Info : Cromwell, CT Previous Levels : Gates of Anguish I have Created Despair Deathtrap Description : Clues discovered at Gates of Anguish and Despair base have led you to the corporate headquarters and genetics labs of UAC. The evil infestation has reached even here. You enter an otherwise unguarded building a take the elevator to the upper floor. Things seem quiet, soft music is playing and there is a familiar guard outside the elevator door. Hmm, they have changed the decor since the last time you were here. You look over at the Reception Desk, and spot the Imps! Things are going to get tough. But you're the best, heh? Nothing is going to stop you from your mission, not some pesky little Imp! Play it cool, ammo and healing are in short supply (this is corporate life). Monsters abound, and have many places to hide. They may come out to find you, so watch your back. Please E-Mail me with your comments on CIS. Your comments go a long toward improving my 'work'. Additional Credits : Raphael Quinet and Brendon J Wyber for the DEU editor Colin Reed for the BSP utility John A Warren for his inspiration and patience Gary Thomas for believing that a good game requires thought and of course, those great people at id, without which we would not have the pleasure to play DOOM. I would like to thank those great people on CIS for their help and inspirations. Instructions : Put WIDOWMKR.WAD and WIDOWMKR.BAT in your DOOM directory, then run the batch file by typing 'WIDOWMKR'. This takes you right into it, skipping the intro stuff, chooses "Hurt Me Plenty" skill, and jumps right into the level. Modify the batch file with -skill # as you please. Otherwise, choose New Game, Shores of Hell, and the skill level you prefer and play thru as normal. Widow Maker is an E2M4 level. It can be played alone, or in conjunction with your favorite levels.

================================================================ Title : Widowmaker Filename : WIDOWMKR.WAD Author : Mark Harrison Email Address : <email removed> Misc. Author Info : Just a (very bored) programmer. Additional Credits to : id, author's of DEU, IDBSP, BSP11X, DMGRAPH, Matt Fell for the Unofficial DOOM Specs, Jim Tanner, Robert Forsman and M Brandon Reinhart for playtesting and my wife for picking the title and not divorcing me while making it :-) ================================================================ * Play Information * Episode and Level # : E1M1 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes (it's kinda big though) Difficulty Settings : Yes (easy levels are easy and hard levels are hard) New Sounds : No New Graphics : Yes (right in the beginning) New Music : No Demos Replaced : 1 (it shows all the secrets so play first!) * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Editor(s) used : DEU 5.0, DEU 5.1, DEU 5.21, DEUGCC 5.21 :-) Known Bugs : NONE! (though a few places might work a little funky with two or more players.) ================================================================ Description After your return from Hell and a nice 6 month vacation, you received an urgent message from Union Aerospace Corporation today. They started picking up strange signals from an island (Widowmaker) on the other side of Deimos recently. It seems that a few of the inhabitants from Deimos Lab escaped before you were able to get them. You were happy to help in any way that you could, but it seems that your baggage ended up on Venus while you landed on Mars to begin your mission. You almost waited, but you entered their lair before with only a pistol. And it's such a small island. How hard could it be? ================================================================ * Copyright / Permissions * Authors MAY use this level as a base to build additional levels providing I get credit. A little e-mail would be nice (but not necessary) as well just so I can see what you've done. You MAY distribute this WAD, provided you include this file, with no modifications. You may distribute this file in any electronic format (BBS, Diskette, CD, etc) as long as you include this file intact. NOTE: I asked id about creating a CD with all the files from infant2.sphs.indiana.edu on it. They did not give me permission to do so. They say that they do not want people commercially exploiting PWAD author's efforts whether the above statement was included in a PWAD or not. And their defination of commercial exploitation is anything more than free. I think this attitude (though they have the right intentions) is absolutely stupid. And if you think so as well, drop them a line and let them know. Nor do I believe that they really have any power to stop such a CD from being sold. After all, their only connection to our PWAD's is that their game can utilitize the files. Just like Microsoft can't tell me what I can or can't do with Word files. I just don't want them to not include the ability to run custom built levels in future games because people don't respect their wishes. Well, enough of my soapbox. If someone does make such a CD, you DO have my permission as stated above. * Where to get this WAD * FTP sites: infant2.sphs.indiana.edu, ftp.uwp.edu, wuarchive.wustl.edu. BBS numbers: Other:
