Description : The first Strife pwad available on the internet as
far as I know. This is a good size deathmatch
level that should be suitable for anywhere from 2
to 8 players.
Two player performance tested with a 700mhz comp
connected to a 120mhz comp with a 19200 serial
connection and it ran good. I tried to keep the
detail at reasonably medium level, not too high or

I recommend patching Strife up to v1.31.

* Additional Gameplay Notes *
When using parameters with Strife, remember that the exe is strife1.exe.
Strife.bat of course will not pass on parameters.
Strife's multiplayer mode seems to be deathmatch only with no way to play
cooperative. As far as I know, coop player starts 2 through 8 are completely
pointless, but I still put them in just in case.
You can fake multiplayer like this:
ipxsetup -nodes 1 -file lamasery.wad -altdeath -warp 1 -skill 3
Also, Strife's default start map is really map02, the Town, while this wad
replaces map01, the Sanctuary. So exiting this map will take you to the town
while a couple exits there will bring you back to this map.
On skill 3 only I put teleport beacons by the player starts. Different
players can summon their own armies of allies and once a player fires on an
enemy, all out war will break out between the different sides. Strife
defaults to skill 2 if you don't use the -skill parameter.
I suggest using DeathManager (dm.exe) from Doom for launching Strife
