Release date : 11/21/08
Author : Jon "JonnyFive" Washburn
Email Address : Jon.R.Washburn@gmail.com
Other Files By Author : Sacrifice in Blood, the Corrupt Priest, weatherFX, the original version of Cold as Hell
Misc. Author Info :
Description : A total conversion set in the mid-50's on a weapons research base deep in the heart of
Greenland. You thought this would be a nice boring way to finish your career as a Marine.
You thought wrong. (see cah_manual.pdf for the full story)
Important Notes : There are a number of new keys added that need to be bound before playing.
If the snow is slowing your computer, you can toggle it (default F12).
If you have a computer that is borderline capable of running GZDoom, you can try loading
cah_reducedFX.pk3 after cah_se.pk3 to run CaH without some of the more resource-hog
effects (namely dynamic projectile lights and the new flamethrower effect).
This mod is NOT intended to run in resolutions lower than 640 x 480.
If you have an old computer and can't run this at all, download cah_soft.zip to play
the Cold as Hell software renderer-compatible version, a bug-fixed version of CaH designed
for ZDoom 2.2.0. This lacks several of the new features of CAH: SE, but contains basically
the same levels and features.
