Advanced engine needed : ZDoom/ZDoomGL - Not because of any tricky stuff, but
because these maps are too big & complex for vanilla
Primary purpose : SP (Deathmatch starts included, but not tested)
NOTE : These are the first three levels (and the secret level)
from a proposed megawad. These are the first three
levels from that project, of which the first nine are
completed (well, OK, level four is still under
construction). I am releasing them in groups because
the later ones are big and complex. Levels 1-3 all go
together, as you will see, and of course level 9 has
to be included because it's accessable from level 3.
Title : Doom-X
Filename : doomx1-3.wad
Recommended port : ZDoomGL (may look to bright using ZDoom)
Best time to play : Anytime: in a dark room at night using ZDoomGL, during
the day using ZDoom.
Settings : My Trinitron monitor is set with both brightness and
contrast at 50%, and the in-game slider for brightness
is also set to 50%. I've replaced the original sky with
a starry sky, so it should look black with little white
fuzzy dots in GL mode - or with white squares and
rectangles if you must play it using some other port.
Release date : 12/29/03

Additional Credits to : The original crew at id Software, who gave us (well, OK,
sold us) a wonderful new art form, and to Doomworld for
being there. To my wife Virginia, who not only puts
up with my efforts, but aids and abets them - and who
lets me win at Deathmatch occasionally. ;-P And to Jason
Hargreaves for creating "Nukemine" from which I drew
inspiration and some actual sectors.
