*** BUG FIX ***
Note: Despite several hours of testing, I just found a small but
deadly bug in the revised version of epic being distributed with
epic2.wad. The problem was a small segment of a larger line chain
wasn't linked to a sector. The result is that the action defaults to
a local sector, creating an undesirable effect. This bug occurs in
the left side of the ledge behind the "dead boss brain" wall in the
room off the elevator on the secret staircase (NW room of MAP01).
Only the area closest to the ledge is affected (thus the reason it
wasn't noticed during testing). Epic2a.wad has a fixed version of
epic. Please download epic2a instead of epic2.

*** General Info ***
EPIC2.WAD for DOOM2 is a sequel to the popular EPIC.WAD. Like the original,
it was designed for single player mode. Nonetheless, all levels of
difficulty, and all modes are supported. This release of EPIC2.WAD also
includes the latest revision of the original EPIC.WAD. Enhancements to
EPIC.WAD include better deathmatch and cooperative support, all levels of
difficulty, more beasties, and more surprises. If you liked EPIC.WAD, then
you'll want to download this just for the revisions, but you'll probably
enjoy the sequel as well.

There's nothing out there but trees anyway. There
are several lines in EPIC2 which I have purposely
left off the map. This is for effect, and is
