Archive Maintainer : This wad belongs in /levels/doom2/a-c/
Update to : None
Advanced engine needed : None required
Primary purpose : Single play
Note : Should work OK with most ports without
installation with deusf. Just use the
three wad files and the deh direct
from the zip file.
Note that in jDoom some of the deh
features do not work, though this
should not make the map unplayable.
There follows the text of the author's original text-file, which
is included in anadream.zip.
THE ANA'S DREAM (Firts and Final Version)
Title : THE ANA'S DREAM
Filename : Anadream.zip (installable sprites, floors and levels wads)
Author : Noe Cuerda Aguado
Email Address : firstname.lastname@example.org
Misc. Author Info : Delineation student.
Description : This wad contain redefined Sprites like Arch-vile
and other ordinaries Sprites, new textures (80%),
new graphics, new music, and all new sounds.
I've created this single WAD with the aim that it
can be enjoyed not only playing it (WAD's complexity
- 8200 sidedefs, a lot of TAG's numbers -almost 140- ),
but listening it (Music & Sounds) and watching it
(new textures, redefined Sprites, etc.)
Description II : Ana has your soul locked in the final screen, where
you must find the exit that will make you to wake
of your dream. Don't shot to your soul or you'll
hurt yourself (isn't just a metaphor). Choose to
awake, or live with your soul until the end of yours
days, in the Ana's warm dream.

THANKS TO ALL, FOR ALL!!!
(1) For his disinterested help with his mails.
(2) For his great job, that has help me to understand the true meaning
of a WAD.
P.D: (of course without despise the other's job, because beginning
with myself, I have still a lot to learn, and the first of all
every creative task must be appreciate.)
* Play Information *
To install: After unzipping anadream.zip into your Doom2 directory,
check that you have in your doom2 directory, the files
setup.exe and Ipxsetup.exe/Sersetup.exe. If you've got
them, as it will be in the most of the cases, then install.bat
will create doomhack.exe, - a security backup file for not
having to change your original Doom2.exe - , and it will
"inflate" it with more Sprites and flats through Anefect2.wad.
Afterwards, Install.bat will create Dream.bat and restore.bat.
In order to start playing, type DREAM. If you want to uninstall
it, type RESTORE - then doomhack.exe, dream.bat and restore.bat
will be removed and your directory will return to its original

* Comments *
I avoided to create different levels of violence and difficulty,
because, from the first time I wouldn't differentiate that I
believed a single story. And, of course, I don't believe in
miracles like passing a WAD infested with monsters whit a
shotgun and 4 shells. When this happens, you immediately use
IDDQD. In my opinion, the difficulty of a WAD, doesn't consist
in the number of monster in a square meter. Another personal
thought is the TAGs (opening a door by using a distant switch)
are more interesting than keys, because you can't use the "tricky"
codes. But I must say than in my WAD there are 3 keys as a symbol
of the original DOOM.
Please e-mail if you want, about the better and the worst of
my WAD. I'll like to hear about you.
And ...thanks for trying my WAD !.

I will ask you to not transform this WAD for two reasons (then now
comes the explanation...): The first one is that I've tried to
built and adventure from a personal feeling, moved to this WAD in a
a some abstract way. The second one, but not less important, is that
copying the other's making is like chaining the creativity that we all
have in ourselves, and that all that arises from our inner, at the end
produces a double satisfaction.

(It's a large WAD, but when I built it I was a Beginner). Is not
comparable with this.
