<1> Its finally here! A combination of two of the most popular Shareware
games ever: Id's DOOM and Epic's One Must Fall: DOOM MUST FALL! Now
you can face off with Jaguar, Nova, Katana and the rest of the gang!
All new weapons, sprites, a bunch of new wall textures, all new
sounds, heck, its a Total Conversion patch for garsh sakes! Go crazy!
<2> Now.. the question everyone's asking.. How easy is it to install?
Well, I spent an extra month writing an executable to make DMF the
most user friendly, install friendly, and modem/net play friendly
DOOM patch out there. All you have to do is run DMFSTART.EXE,
navigate your way to the "Extra DMF Stuff" menu, choose Build
Graphics, Build Floor tiles, and finally, Build executable, and you've
got yourself a fully functunal copy of DOOM MUST FALL! Probably the
first thing you'll want to do with DMFSTART is press F1 to see the
help screen, so you actually know HOW to get to the Extra DMF Stuff.
Some other important DMFSTART stuff: Build DMF.BAT will build you a
handy batch file to run DMF with, in case you'd prefer not to have to
load DMFSTART whenever you want to play. Keep in mind that DMFSTART
saves your options whenever you quit, so you shouldn't really need to
use DMF.BAT. Also, if for some unknown reason, the configuration file
for DMFSTART (DMFSTART.CFG) should somehow get deleted or corrupted,
just copy DMFSTART.BAK over DMFSTART.CFG (DMFSTART creates
DMFSTART.BAK, a default CFG file, whenever it loads). Other than that,
well, you might want to pay attention to the hints that come up at the
bottom of the screen. Oh.. read DMFNOTES.TXT too.
<3> The Levels:
E2:M1 Bonus Level
I added this near the end as a way to view all the different things
in the game I added (As far as sprites are concerned). If you haven't
played E2M8 yet, I strongly advise playing through that FIRST, so
you don't ruin everything for yourself (you'll get a kindly reminder
of this when you play this level:).
This one'd be great in four player dmatch.. that big maze and all..
Even more fun than Dare to Dream!
E2:M4 The Secret Garden
I don't _think_ you can get trapped.. I hope..
E2:M5 Criminal Sanctuary (Cantina anyone?:)
You gotta try this one! Really!! Not only is it one of the better
death-match levels, its also a great single or cooperative player,
For this one, play in cooperative (so you don't get teleported to
the opponent's side). If you push on those two doors on opposite
ends that don't seem to do anything, something WILL happen after
a while (trust me). Oh yeah, after you play this one awhile, try it
on the OTHER side.. its REALLY freaky..
E2:M7 I'm FALLllling...
This one should be, well, unique.
E2:M8 DOOM MUST FALL!
The REAL DMF level! Play it first! Play it cooperative!
Heck, why not Deathmatch, too? (Cause its so huge!).
E2:M9 Symetric Death
GREAT for deathmatch!
Kreissack's Fortress is the real DMF level to play (E2M8). The other
seven levels are accompanying deathmatch levels that are in no way connected
with the DMF level (just look at E2M5).
DMF is divided into two different kinds of level(s). Seven of the
levels are my favorite deathmatch levels I've created, which have been
customized to the changes in DMF. The other level, E2M8, is Kreissack's
fortress, which is basically the point of the patch. Play it first. The reason
it takes place in E2M8, as most of you have probably already guessed, is so
that when you win the game and you get to see the neeto-DMF ending.
<4> Changes and New Stuff:
(If I left any out, don't be surprised. There's a lot of them there).
(Hand Gun): Now it really IS a *HAND* gun!
(Shotgun): A futeristic replacement for the old pistol.
(Chaingun): A little faster then the old chaingun, but not much difference.
(Rocket Launcher): A big difference! The MINE launcher requires a TOTALLY
different strategy. Great for Deathmatch, but not to be
used in close quarters!
(Plasma Rifle): The V gun shoots a lot faster then the traditional Plasma
rifle, but eats up ammo.
(BFG): Well, it LOOKS totally different then before..
(Bonus Life): All the Armor Helmets, Health Potions, Stim packs and Medikits
are now ONE object, that cycles through 10 different frames of
animation (you get one of the 4 objects depending on when you
pick up the object). Some things to note: This Universal Health
Care Object hangs from the ceiling, and floats down to you when
you shoot it. Also, shoot it enough, and it'll blow up like a
rocket! Be careful though (here's the Bug). If you teleport over
a UHCO, your character will try to "get" the explosion, and the
To know what you've picked up the game'll indicate with:
Status01: Armor Repair (Armor helmet)
Status02: Health Stabilizer (Health potion)
Status03: Stamina (Stim pak)
Status04: Stamina BOOST (Medical kit)
(Barrels): These rockets are REALLY reactive, and don't have too much mass.
(Enemies): You'll pick up on those changes pretty quick.. here's a little
hint.. dodge Pyros' fireballs!!!
<5> The Story (For E2M8). Yes, it has one..
DOOM MUST FALL!:
You're a bounty hunter hired by the International Peace Council to
infiltrate the spaceship headquarters of a powerful pirate organization
(Iron Fist) and remove its commander. The pirates have just stolen a shipment
of H.A.R.s that were to be used by the International Government to maintain
what little control it possesses. With few legal powers, the Government must
resort to your skills to counter the pirates' offensive (no doubt under the
employement of a higher source).
The mission begins in your small spaceship, as you approach the
pirate's fortress. Suddenly they discover your presence and begin beaming
pirates armed in H.A.R.s aboard your ship! Get to the teleporter and prepare
for a totally new experience!
<6> Troubleshooting (Not that its really neccesary:)
Sprites and/or Floor tiles aren't changed:
Make sure you've run "Build Graphics/Floor Tiles" and you have Sprites
and/or Levels toggled in DMFStart.
DOOM says it can't add (one of the DMF patches) even though I know the file is
in the directory:
Make sure that file is the correct size (roughly 6.5 megs for DSP.WAD
and 440k for DFL.WAD). If they aren't, you may have run out of HD
space. If that's not the case, increase the number of files and buffer
in your Config.SYS.
Everything's changed, but everything acts the same way it did in regular DOOM:
Run "Build Executable" in DMFStart. Make sure using DOOM1.666, also.
Everything goes pretty slow:
Upgrade your computer or find the popular DOOM modifying utility, DEU.
With DEU you can load up all the DMF WADs and build a new IWAD.
