Other Files By Author : Quite a few, mainly beginning with the letters "NJ" :)
Misc. Author Info : Not much to tell
Description : Olde levels made many years ago. My first 2 WADs.
Released purely because of interest in old, cheesy 1994 WADS.
The file date may or may not be accurate. This file
was originally uploaded to the Compuserve action games
forum in 1994.
There may have been an earlier version with the files uploaded
individually, but this combined upload is pretty old. I think
MY_1ST used to run on E2M1 but was shifted to E2M2 to accomodate
the easier DOWN in the E2M1 slot.

WAD Name: My_1st.wad
Replaces level: E2L2
Known bugs: none
Well, the name says it all doesn't it ? I couldn't be bothered giving the
level a clever name like "The demons bottom" so I just called it "My 1st WAD"
'cos that's what it is.
It's quite a big level which supports easy, medium and hard play skills.
It has start points for co-operative and deathmatch play.
I got fed up with almost every third party level I tried comprising entirely
of huge high ceilings and narrow ledges. They are good but enough is enough.
I also didn't like the fact that so often the textures used by doomers didn't
fit the walls properly. So with these points in mind I created "My 1st WAD"
trying to avoid doing excessive things just because I could and trying to
make the whole thing "hang together" properly.
The level isn't too hard but on "Ultra-violence" and "Nightmare" it isn't too
easy either. Don't worry, there is enough ammo to kill everything but finding
the secrets will help.
WAD Name: Down.wad
Replaces level: E2L1
Known bugs: none
What can I say ? After all I said above this level was done purely to try out
some things to see if they could be done. I started just trying to make a
room that looked quite cool. (You should spot it, it's the one with all the
lights.) Then I thought I would make a level to go round it. The entry point
is almost the highest floor level you can have and the lowest point in the
level is about as low as you can go. I did this using stairs and not huge
drops and massive ceilings etc.
This level supports all the skills and play modes that "My_1st.WAD" supports.
It is a smaller level and is designed to be used as the 1st one in an episode.
If you run doom by typing "NJ_WADS" [RETURN] and then start a game of "The
Shores of Hell" at the skill level you want the 1st two levels will be "Down"
Hope you Enjoy
