HAPYDTH2 - Have a Nice Day (version 2) - for DOOM II v1.9
This is a modified version of HAPPYDTH.ZIP
Original author : Jeff Mitchell Mitchjp@wkuvx1.wku.edu
Version 2 Update by : Sparky of KISS Software firstname.lastname@example.org
Mods made by Sparky of KISS Software:
- got rid of the illegal doom2.exe (v1.666) file and created an
equivalent .deh file (patch format 6 for compatability with Doom II
v1.9 and the various Doom Ports).
- made all the weapons unlimited ammo instead of just large ammo numbers
- I didn't recreate the chaingun exactly because the original version
used the chaingun for both weapons 2 and 3 i.e. there was no Super
Shotgun! As the Super Shotgun is one of my favourite weapons, I just
had to add that in and speed it up too.
- fixed the map faults which were causing the HOM errors.
- slightly moved the single-player start position so it was a little
more sensible, and added a Super Shotgun at the start (the main arena
was no fun at all with the rocket launcher).
Tested okay with:
This update was only tested with Doom Legacy's split-screen
'Plain Vanilla' Doom II v1.9 - you'll need DeHackEd v3.1 or greater
ZDoom v1.17c zdoom -deh hapydth2 -file hapydth2
Boom v2.02 boom -deh hapydth2 -file hapydth2
Legacy v1.28 (DOS) doom3 -file hapydth2.deh hapydth2.wad
Legacy v1.28 (Win32) legacy -file hapydth2.deh hapydth2.wad
- the exit - this is one of the dumbest exits I have ever seen on any
level! The square area outside the arena has a teleporter in each
corner. Entering each teleporter from a different side takes you to
a different location. The exit door can be seen from the main arena
but you have to get there from one of the teleporters in the outside
courtyard. Go to the teleporter in the north east corner of the
outside courtyard and enter the teleporter from the west side.
Enter slowly because when you appear in the inner courtyard you can't
move forward at all! Turn around carefully and there's the exit door!
- the outside courtyard - the upper area where the chaingunners are is
not accessible in single-player mode. The doors you can see up there
lead to the multiplayer start areas.
- the new fast Super Shotgun is pretty cool - while you're dodging
the Cyberdemon's rockets, checkout the blood trail he leaves behind.

Title : Have A Nice Day!
Filename : HAPPYDTH.WAD
Author : Jeff Mitchell
Email Address : Mitchjp@wkuvx1.wku.edu
Misc. Author Info : I am a Computer Science major at Western Kentucky
University, and a long-time DOOM player. This is
my first venture into actually distributing the
PWADs I make, as most of my other ones weren't
good enough to be distributed. If you have any
comments (good or bad), suggestions, etc., please
drop me a line at the address above.
Description : This level was designed as a deathmatch level. It
can, however, be very challenging if you play it
one-player. I was using a DeHacked version of
Doom2 while I made this, and it's set up for use
with it. Without it, you'll probably want to use
the IDKFA code for ammo, since you're gonna run out
long before you kill the monsters. This level lends
itself to mostly arena-style combat, which is my
Additional Credits to : Chris "Red" Schneider and Jason "Potsy" Poncerolli,
along with the rest of the guys for their input,
play testing, and encouragement, and Id software for
making one of the best games on Earth (and in Hell.)
