Description : The Great Bicycle Mystery is a 15 level megawad for cooperative Doom II play for 2-4 people. It includes many new textures, new music, and a new enemy that replaces the Nazi. All levels were designed to be linear, good looking, and easy to just start playing with a group of strangers or friends. You can expect to die to multiple times in the levels, which is intended. All levels were tested by 2 players over a LAN connection. To play these levels properly, you will NEED the following things enabled:
RESPAWNING AMMO - This is to keep players restocked through the map.
RESPAWNING HEALTH/ARMOR - This is to keep players restocked through the map.
NO JUMPING - Jumping in these levels will ruin the puzzles and progression.
The following options can be enabled if you like, however, they are not required (but I recommend them):
Freelook - Recommended to uh... look freely.
Fast Monsters - Recommended only if you are good/want to die a lot. It is also useful if you have a 5th/6th player or something.
