Misc. Author Info :
Description : Well,...you arrive at a pre-determined point in the
level...and you find some weapons and ammo...and you
take a look around...and you see some really scary
bit-maps come at you...and you shoot them with your
8-bit "Digi-Blaster"...and they groan and fall over.
No mystery here...just common sense. : )
Seriously, folks, this WAD has a ton of high quality
samples that I felt the need to have. The size of
this file is huge because of it. The base level is
around 270kb ! The sounds and MIDI equal around
310kb! And this .TXT file alone is bigger than most
peoples' complete WAD's.
The MIDI file that I included was written
exclusively for an SB16 or compatible - that means
FM Synthesis. I felt that writing for this platform
would be about the best way to convey the music to
a general audience. If you have one of those
wave-table synthesis jobs...Well, good for you and
your good taste (again!). I, unfortunately, just
have the wonderful FM synthesis to work with (and
so do millions of other users). I just figured that
the needs of the many outweighed the needs of the
few (where have I heard that before?). Now, if you
want to talk about 16 bit 44.1khz digital audio
samples... That's opening another can of
Imps...GOTHIC MIDI mostly deals with "CD quality"
samples for use with synths and samplers...Be on
the lookout for GOTHIC files on C-Serve...
If you find this file to be too big in size...Maybe
your Nintendo is calling for you! If you find that
it needs to be bigger, drop me a line and we'll
Co-Author a Mother.WAD.
Originally, this level was intended to be E2M1 but
I wanted the sky texture in the first Episode. From
here on in, it's E2M1 (to conform to id Software's
Another worthy note: If you open this file in an
Editor program you will lose the music and the
sound effects. Always make a backup before you hack
Again, GOTHIC MIDI is Multimedia...and yes, that
includes text!! (I don't do shabby work...If it's
worth doing...it's worth doing right).
