Description : For those of you that have played locked.zip/lockedd1.zip,
you probably have found a few bugs regarding the enemies, e.g.
the don't stop shooting and they're dead-on all the time for
accuracy. There's also a few other nasty thing's I've found
regarding them, and that's already fixed. I'll be releasing
that later. It'll be a Doom I and Doom II thing, so no separate
downloads. Also, I will be putting hte DDFs in the wads so you don't
have to make any special directories. Anyways...yes, there's a story
to this (gotta explain all the weapons and such, eh? :P)
The Story So...don't even think about saying it!
Alrighty, you're a space marine comissioned by the UAC to go to mars,
yadda yadda yadda, and the base is destroyed and comrades are slaughtered.
But, never fear for oyu have your trusty sidearm AND trusty SMG. What,
thought you'd be goin' in with very little? Well, you were wrong...in a
good way, for once. Anyways, you discover all of the UAC's toys on Mars,
as well as a few other things, and these'll all be on Earth, too, when you
return to kill the demons there...yes, they have invaded earth, those dirty
Hand-to-hand combat - you punch with the left, kick with the middle (that doesn't sound good, but
oh well, shit happens). The kick is stronger than the punch (obviously),
and you can do either relatively fast. You have to hit the button every time
you want to punch or kick though.
Laserblade - A rather devastating piece of hardware if I may say so myself. Again, a close combat
weapon, but it has it's merits, especially on lower-end-of-the-scale critters. Like
hand-to-hand, you gotta press the button per hit.
Beretta M92SF - this is your standard side-arm. Yes, even in the future, the army is STILL using
this and Glock is STILL brooding over it. Pretty standard damage, accuracy is okay,
but after you get the second pistol, you'll never go back to this one again. Well,
maybe not. Fires as fast as you can hit the button (more or less).
Akimbo Berettas - Now this is a lot more fun...two pistols, good fire rate, nice deathtoll and okay
accuracy. This has autofire because it's a pain in the ass to keep hitting the
button for 2 weapons kinda thing.
MP5k - The machine pistol you start off with...yes, it's also around in the future. And why not,
considering it's great track record? High rate of fire, okay accuracy, but chews through
ammo like it's candy. You MIGHT wanna NOT use this until you get either more ammo, or
into a real tight spot.
Akimbo MP5k's - Now THIS is a party-time weapon! Although the damage is low, the firerate itself
is VERY high, so it's still pretty damned good.
MP5SD - silenced sub-machinegun, still in use because of it's reliability. Rate of fire is very
high, and it's dead on accurate. But damage is very mediocre.
FNP90 - Fabrique Nationale's high-tech sub-machinegun is still in play today as well, mainly
because of it's hitting power. High rate of fire, and good damage, as well as not too
Sawed-off 12ga. shtogun - This is definitely something you wanna keep handy for those close
encounters! One blast'll make anything up to a Demon think twice about
screwing with you! requires consistent button pushing, like the pistol.
12 ga. Autoshotgun - This is state of the art, although not quite as powerful as the sawed-off.
however, it's rate of fire more than makes up for it. Although it is not
very high, it's high enough.
OICW - "The Brainchild of the modern battlefield!" One of the most complicated weapons in
existence(although not for you...point and shoot, that's it), it was a miracle that
it came into being. It was designed to be a sniper's assault rifle, with high accuracy,
etc. Well, the accuracy is OK, and the rate of fire is awesome, and Zoom is there when
you need it. It secondary fire grenade launcher is also a great help!
HK G3A3 - The conoisseur's rifle. High power, moderate rate of fire, and crappy accuracy -
on auto. When you use it's secondary fire, it's right-on accurate, and it hits even
HK PSG1 - the true sniper's rifle! High zoom, great hitting power...it's only downside is it DOES
have a limited magazine capacity (20 rds.), and it is semi-auto only.
UAC Industries Pulse Rifle - The first nasty weapon you'll come upon...VERY high fire rate, high
damage, and fair accuracy make this the first excellent crowd-control
weapon you will find. It's secondary fire is an under-the-barrel 10ga.
riot shotgun that's just as nasty.
UAC Industries Autotracking Pulse Cannon - AKA the Smartgun, this baby'll do some of the aiming
for ya! very high rate of fire and heavy damage
capability, coupled with it's accuracy make this weapon
one of the marine's true best buddies.
FN M249 - Fabrique Nationale's continual foray into the heavy weapons sect produced this in the
latter 20th century: A high-power, high fire-rate weapon that uses standard ammo.
UAC Electric Gatling gun - Or minigun for short. This is the true crowd-controller. Phenominal
firerate, VERY high damage, but it'll send your aim sky-high...so you
have to be vewwy cayfuw when hunting big wabbits with this one!
Rocket Propelled Grenade Launcher - Another favourite of the military, this not only fires
standard rockets, but also fires napalm warheads as its
secondary. And trust me, you don't want to be in the room
after you fire up a napalm warhead!!
What to expect in later versions: EGDE 1.25 support, any fixes to glitches
you might find, or I might find later on,
as well as new/more weapons and effects (if
possible). Maybe even some levels if I
decide to learn to use a level editor. But until
then, play it with whatever ya like.

I used the PSG1 as a base, but the cutting,pasting, and graphic changes belong to me on that baby
:o) But regardless, the base is Covert Ops'! Oh, also for Cory Whittle(sp?) for a little bit of
guidance, as well as the DT patches. Anyone who I've missed, e-mail
me and give me hell, because I've probably lost your name and the text

want to and/or mean to).
