Misc. Author Info : Note that I'm uploading this two days
before the summer recess, so I won't
be able to read my mail very often, if

contact me, mail it c/o University of
East Anglia, Norwich, England NR4 7TJ.
Description : Originally intended as a two-player
DeathMatch blast, this level is made
for high-speed friend-killing carnage.
It does play OK on single player, though,

as well, so as to make DeathMatch games fair.
We (Andre and Tim McLachlan) wrote some new
music for our first levels, but it sounded
really awful on SoundBlaster. (well, Pantera-
style drums are hard to get right at the
best of times!) If people really want more
music (and I can see how they might, the
number of times I've heard the E1M1 music)
then E-Mail Tim MacLachlan about his music
library. He's on summer recess too, so don't
expect a prompt reply.
If your version has some additional wads
(THRASH.WAD, TWILIGHT.WAD) then these
contain the music and you can include it
with DOOM -file <level> <music>.
Oh, yes. The tutorial that comes with DEU 5.2
says that you can't align textures around
windows and doors. This is not the case, I'm
happy to say (take a look at the vine-covered
structures and the marble edifice of you don't
