I then put it on the net. I'm feeling like
a ftp site...
Description : Well here's the story. (Who cares anyway ?!)
Once upon a time four UAC-Marines tried to
save the human race by fighting the evil
forces of hell. Unfortunately they killed
themselves in an ultimate deathmatch, so
Earth is doomed.
But there is still a chance to survive the
attack of Evil. John Rambo himself and his
three brothers have agreed to save the day.
This Sprite-Patch replaces the four
Marines with Rambo-look-alikes, wearing a
headband (Player-Color) and sunglasses.
Additional Credits to : - ID-Software (as usual) for the two most
ass-kicking games of the entire planet!
- My favourite deathmatch targets:
- To all Doomers over the world.
(You know who you are !)

* Copyright / Permissions *
Forget it man, enjoy it or not. The rest is up to you...
It'd sure be nice to include this .TXT file everytime you
copy the WAD. Perhaps my name will be known someplace, someday ... (seufz!)
* Where to get this WAD *
Since I (really!) don't have a modem it should be very difficult to release
this stuff !!! I know that this is crazy, but I'm going to send some copies
of this to some addresses that I found on a DOOM-Tool CD I just bought. I
hope that the guys who receive my letter will help me to spread this WAD all
over the entire planet. This might sound unbelievable, but I don't know any-
one who has a modem and Internet access. So what should I do ??? I spend
hours and hours of work for this shit AND I WANT THIS STUFF TO BE PLAYED
ALL OVER THE WORLD ! IT'S WORTH TO PLAY IT ! GOT IT ?! GOOD !!!
* How to use this WAD *
Well, for those who don't know a thing about DEUSF:
You can't use RAMBO.WAD like other PWADS, because ID-Software didn't want
fools like us to mess around with their sprites so easily. So if you want to
replace a sprite of DOOM2.WAD you will have to append "all" DOOM2 sprites to
the new .WAD file in order to use it. DEUSF does this for you! So this is it:
1st. Copy all files of this .ZIP into your DOOM2 directory.
2nd. Type the following command at the DOS-Prompt:
DEUSF -SPRITES -APPEND RAMBO.WAD
3rd. Wait for DEUSF to append the missing sprites (might take some time!)
4th. Use a DOOM-Shell like DCC or DOOMIT to add RAMBO.WAD like a
normal PWAD when playing a multiplayer game of DOOM2.
5th. Have fun !!!
NOTE: After appending the missing sprites RAMBO.WAD takes more
than 4 MB disk-space. Be sure to have enough space left on
your hard-disk !!! There is no other (less space-wasting)
way to use this .WAD - Sorry !
* Additional Stuff *
I thought it'd be very funny to replace the UAC-Marines with some other
heroes, till I realized how much time it would take (That was when I had
already done half of the work !). But after all I'm quite pleased with
the result and hope that you enjoy it as much as my FMDT's (Favourite-
Moving-Deathmatch-Targets) did. Imagine your friend is looking out for
you and John Rambo runs up to him and tears him apart with a shotgun-
blast. Big Surprise! (He, He !!!).
It might be a little more difficult to identify the colors of your
opponents (Who cares - except playin' a two on two deathmatch !) and
due to the bright skin color you might get seen a bit earlier when
hiding in a dark sector ("Megaheroes don't hide at all !" - C.C. -)
So I don't have a modem, but if ya like this stuff and want to contact
me for some reason (Comments - Tips - Homaging - or whatever) here is
the right address to reach the Captain himself:
P.O. Box 1313
I don't think that anyone will contact me at all, but it 'd be cool !
(By the way I never thought anyone would read this shit this far !!!)
That's all for now, but be sure this ain't the last you heard of me
(Remeber I want to get famous !! Ha!). Oh, Yes: Don't complain about
my English!! (At least I tried to be cool.)
Keep on DOOMing !
P.S.: Special greetings must go to Dave Biggs whose Chook-WAD is
some of the coolest stuff around. Now I know what you've been
through Dave !!
