Sound: Replacement Source:
Pistol Shot Good-ii.wad
Rocket detonation Game I had once (I forget which one)
Plasma in flight Good-ii.wad (I suspect Star Wars)
Death yell Rowan Atkinson as Blackadder
Death Scream Good-ii.wad (Arnie)
Telephone sound (DM only) Star Trek communicator (original series)
****Music changed for levels one, two and the intermission and title
I'm told DAZED.MID is from a song called "Dazed and Confused" and
SLEDGE.MID is from a song called "Sledgehammer" Peter Gabriel.
a clue as to the artists of DAZED.MID or the people who wrote
the midi files (they were taken from alt.binaries.midi) - I just
liked the sound of them for Doom.
To play this .wad, type "doom2 -file multimat.wad". The file "multimat.wad"
must be in your Doom 2 directory to do this.
There is NO BFG on either level - I hate it. Add one if you
wish, but please don't redistribute the changed level. I really did
leave it out for a reason!
Levels may be played co-operatively and single player, as well as
in deathmatch mode. Level 1 is best for 3-4 players, but makes for
an excellent "stalking" game for 2 - a meeting every 3-5 minutes.
Level 2 is fun for 2-3 players, and is mayhem for 4 - a meeting every
