Story : A ZDoom 2.0 (beta 38) oddness!
Description : Theese two .WADs, with their relative demos (.lmp
files!) show some oddnesses of the Arch-Vile's
behaviour: their suicidal tendency and a battle
between themselves! If you want to see the
Arch-Viles fighting, launch ZDoom 2.0 beta 38
(I recorded the demo with it and this oddness
works certainly with this version of ZDoom) with
the following parameters:
ZDoom -file arch2.wad -playdemo arch2.lmp -warp 1 -skill 3
If you want to see Arch-Vile's suicidal
tendency, launch always the same version of
ZDoom (2.0 beta 38) with the following
ZDoom -file arch 1.wad -playdemo arch1.lmp -warp 1 -skill 3
Enjoy yourself! He, he! =)
Additional Credits to : Id Software, for making Doom.
ZDoom author, for this oddness (he, he!).

Inspiration : I became interested in this oddnes while I
was playing "Congestion Control 2" by Karthik
Abhiram with the 4th skill level: as two
Arch-Viles appeared, I ran away (he, he!) and
I left them fighting against a Hell Knight.
When I came back, I saw they were killing
each other. One of them survived and began to
suicide himself. This strange event strucked me
so much that I wanted to create a pilot level...
