Title : THE AWFUL MONASTERY
Filename : redking.wad (for DOOM ][)
Author : Gereon P.J. Meuser
26 year old student of chemistry. I love playing
soccer, computer and my wife and son, of course.

Description : Welcome to THE AWFUL MONASTERY. This level is
made intentionally for single player. At the
beginning I wanted to make a multiplayer game-level
but I have taken so much monsters in this level
(e.g.: 110(!) Cacodemons at the final of the level
in UV) and it's size is so big, that, when I added
some more monsters, the programme did crash everytime
(486 DX2-80 / 8MB). Nevertheless this level gives
great fun in multiplayer mode. Deathmatch is possible,
of course, but this level might be a little too big
Recommendation for rookies: Take skill 1! It's hot
enough for you! I prefer skill 3. When I tested my
wad, I had to save very often and I needed 1 hour to
reach the exit.
Troubleshooting : This level runs stable with MS-DOS 5.0. If you use
MS-DOS 6.0 or higher, don't fall in the lake of
poison at the beginning of this level: the programme
may crash. Off-load all drivers you don't need for
DOOM ][, too. May be it is useful to increase the
number of buffers, but I don't know this certainly.
Save your game-result first when you have killed some
Monsters (about 20 in skill 3; about 40 in skill 4),
otherwise the programme may crash.
