* Important information *
"If any of you have tried a tlsdm wad, then you know how much work we put into them.
They are detailed, fun, and enjoyable and all play very well. Please do not give this
wad just some review without even looking deeply into it. The levels in Tlsdm2k3
are highly detailed, and worth playing. I can only hope for the best..."
"Ralphis looks like a fat little ten-year old dork in his UD pic! LOL! Okay, I'm done."
"Why was udm2 worse that udm1? Someone got lazy..."
-The textures are from various games and doom mods. Most of them are actually doom flats
or Quake textures. Thanks to the Skulltag and Unidoom teams for the others.
-The sounds were collected from a few games and movies, and some from a couple of dwangos
-The bfg ball was made by Gothy. The plasma ball was from Doom64, along with the railgun.
The player sprite was from Toke's zskins file. The status bar is from wangotag.wad, the
face is from brit11.wad, the numbers are from operation: arctic wolf, and the menu sprites
were made by chrono. The new weapons had to be dropped due to filesize and lag on zdaemon
(crappy support at times, good thing we have skulltag).
-The music was found online on various midi web pages. I wouldn't be suprised if you
have heard the midis before.
* Fixes from tlsdm2k3 *
-Added author objects in maps (displays who made map)
-Fixed texture and sector errors in map02 (and placed song that was supposed to be in it)
-Fixed sectors and changed sky in map07
-Fixed rocket sector that is SUPPOSED to be blue in map09
-Removed all soul spheres but one in center in map10 (too damn hard with all of em)
-fixed texture error in map11, but decided to leave the famous "walking on air" bug for fun =)
-Added low gravity effect to map16 (way it was meant to be)
-Added wangotag maps for maps 17-18
-Fixed sndinfo lump (what the hell was the "flush" thing?)
-Changed title pic, intermission pic, credit pic, and menu pic
-Added skulltag credit pic, winner pic, loser pic, and music lumps for loser and winner pics
-Improved sky images, now can be tiled
-Other fixes we may have forgotten to mention (sorry if we did LOL)
