Filename : A1-SNiPE.WAD
Author Info : DT : Currently doing all manner of webmastery things for his four
websites, going to Swinburne University (Prahran), studying a
bachelor of design : multimedia design (woohoo!). Designing levels
(at the time of writing) for Unreal Tournament. SNiPE UT edition!
A1 : Studying stuff at uni also. Doing web-type things. Being
sociable. You know the drill. Also doing (at time of writing)
levels for Unreal Tournament.
Level Description : Originally started back in the dark ages of Doom1 (v1.2!), the
interior of the silver building was all that was in A1-SNiPE,
as drawn by A1. He then gave me a copy of the level and said
"draw the rest". So I did. And it got released. And on many BBS'
I visited where it existed, it was one of the top downloads. Joy!
I followed it up with KK-SNiPE, being a near total remake. But as
all derivative works go, it wasn't that great. I tried again with
A1-SNP2, the 'proper' sequel, containing a rebuilt interior of the
silver building and a new southern area. I also included A1-SNiPE
Deluxe as level two, for peoples enjoyment. Again, this sequel just
didn't have that special je ne sais quoi that made the original so
great. So, I took the deluxe edition of the original and fixed up
some more of the problems, playtested it like crazy, rearranged
things for better playability, and released A1-SNiPE Deluxe2. Now
with Doom Legacy, I just *had* to implement their spiffy water
effect, which has finally worked wonders on this level. 32 player
deathmatch is supported, and there's a bit more ammo to compensate.
It rocks. There are a few problems near the north tunnel entrance,
but blame their water effect instead (;
The 2000 edition has been fairly extensively updated
and tweaked, adding lots of DL specific features. Even though
I have a P2/400 with a 12meg Voodoo2 card, there's just
SOMETHING about Doom that keeps drawing me back. I guess it
could be that for many, including myself, Doom was a way of
life. No other games have EVER managed that in recent years.
With the release of the Doom Legacy update, maybe this level
as well as the many other superb efforts that are out there
will get another look. Or maybe I'm just being wishful.
Though I hope I'm not...
This is a minor update over the old A1-SNPDL.ZIP which updates this text description ONLY
as our addresses and whathaveyou have changed. It is also because we're now linking to the
file from our UT site for the UT version of this level! Check it out at
http://dthought.tripod.com/ut - The UT version of SNiPE rocks... Compare the Doom2 version
with the UT version, and see all the wonders a true 3D environ can bring. As for the Quake2
version --- the Quake engine sucks and couldn't handle this level. UT can. I love UT.

This PWAD replaces numerous textures and also MAP01. It is designed for
DEATHMATCHING!!! 32 players are supported, although if people are finding the playing
area too small, EMAIL ME and I will create a third section. Till I hear from someone I
won't touch the main design ethic. However, it would be nice to hear about how you went,
maybe even an LMP (email first with how big it is, PLS!). This level is great, but make
sure that people have been allowed to check it out first. BTW, to open the southern
building entrance, grab the backpack on the western pillar. Just stops ppl getting the
To exit, it is a mutual operation.
There are marked switches on each level, and marked exits. One goes to the switch, the other
to the exit. One pulls the switch and the exit is revealed. Then the other can exit the
The music is taken from a site that are believed to be FREE.
This PWAD has taken a total of well over 50 hours to make and tweak so far. So it is
very good. Yes, I really am a perfectionist ;) It was built from scratch and is entirely
my work and design. So I guess you can say it is (c) 1992-99. There.
You CAN'T... repeat... CAN'T re-distrib any modified versions. Sure, feck it
up completely on your own system, but just don't copy it. Easy.
You may not take ANY credit for anything you steal from this PWAD. Nyer. If you wish to
reuse any art, ASK ME FIRST. YOU DO **N O T** HAVE PERMISSION OTHERWISE!!!
You must include both the files in any redistribution. That is, this file,
and the >unmodified< PWAD itself.
You can stick this >unmodified< ZIP file on a CD if u like.
You can upload it to ftp sites - I've already put it on FTP.CDROM.COM and thus
all the mirrors associated. So don't waste their time uploading it again. Thx.
You can distribute it on your website.
Or anything really. You could print it out in binary and scan it back in and see
whether you could use OCR accurately with non-standard characters, although I guess
that would fail because some ASCii characters are white, including the spacebar.
If you should review this PWAD, >PLEASE<, drop me a line. I'd love to know what you
think. Or just send me some email! Yeah! What a REVELATION!
I am attempting to make a Quake2 version of this ... but it's hard. So it might be released
or it might not. See how it goes, eh? Email me if you want some more info on this.
