Note by the uploader : The WAD had originally a modified E1M1 from
original DooM as E1M2, but that was removed for
this upload to /idgames in order to avoid
There have also been two v1.2-demos in the WAD,
but they could not be converted to v1.9, so they
have been left out.

Where to get this WAD: Wherever it may be floating around.
When you give this to your friend to play over the serial port/modem
with, make sure you get a good look at the WAD with DEU or your editor
of choice. There are five to ten hidden areas chock full of special
items to give him a pounding. However, even with this advantage, playing
with RESPAWN (or NIGHTMARE) is difficult no matter what you do. Lastly,
even your opponent has equal footing, as there are weapons all over the
I have used lifts and teleportations extensively, especially in the
teleport room. The teleport room is a bunch of pads, and you need the right
sequence to get through. The sequence is pretty easy to figure out, just
by trial and error. If RESPAWN is activated, the Sarge's have real fun with
One last note involves the "Missile Silo," as I call it. It's the only area
where you can stock up for your rocket launcher, and you need to activate
it with a special switch or with a red key. It was a great idea until I

If the "XX" is pushed, the floor in the adjoining room lowers, opening
a staircase. The floor is raised to its original height by walking into
the secret area and push the wall labeled:
This only works once, but that is because DOOM won't let you do it twice.
If you need to get in there again the lava pit has access for you IF you
have a red key.
