description : DEATHMATCH, 2 to 4 players. - Easy to
identify exit. Two highth levels to
fight on simultaneously, (frag fest!).
Loosely, based on the original Phobos
Anomly; but highly improved with many
extras!. Many secret rooms, teleporters,
hidden pannels, drop down floor, invisible
walls (the hidden panels and switches
-Do Not Have- mis-aligned textures, and
are difficult to find by design... :)
This wad is set up like a war zone,
many locations to snipe from, but all
have an entrance and an exit to dis-
courage camping out!
The BFG and Plasma gun are harder to
get, with considerable risk involved.
On skill level (1-2), which only has
shotguns, chainsaws and the chaingun,
.....the chaingun is difficult to get.
The backpack is available on all skill
levels, and is also difficult to find
credits : id software for the best game ever!;
And to Greg Jobe for testing and the
encouragement to keep building wads.
Thanks Greg, for many good ideas too!!!
* play information *
episode and level # : e1m5 -- I used e1m5, because the music
is quiet and boring, which allows you to
still hear the sound effects with your
stereo on, --(without resetting Doom's
config. before starting).
1phobwar.wad file size: 102806 bytes (two players)
2phobwar.wad file size: 134056 bytes (four players)
single player : No, - just to do recon, (recon is highly
recomended), --yes do this,----- or get
slaughtered in a deathmatch!. (There's
only a few monsters anyway,-- unless you
want to convert these wads to single
player wads, then see below!)
cooperative 2-4 Player: Yes, (my grandmother plays this way!;
she's 86, ------ call her for coop play
at......... 1-666-grandma)!.She'll help
ya fight monsters, wimp; or better yet,
............................Get a Life!
deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, 4 starting points. These wads are
designed for 4 players, (2phobwar.wad).
You could have teams of 2, until you get
tired of it, (probably 5 minutes), then
kill anything that moves!--- Shoot your
partner in the back, then while he's
typing on the screen to ask you why!,
shoot him again and again, that'll
usually get a free-for-all war started!

This is my challange to everyone on the Internet
and anyone else who reads this text file.-----
In order to promote better wad files,-
(ever downloaded one that just don't work at all, or runs
so slow its like playing in peanut butter, or it has so
many missaligned textures, or worst yet, the same texture
through-out the wad,.... that it makes you want to puke!)
I offer the following:
(Not a new idea; I've heard of others doing the same.)
1. Use this wad as a base to build your own wad, (I
encourage you to to so; Don't even ask me!; just
change it, - anyway you want. Distribute it any-
where and everywhere, and in any format you want,
for profit or for free!. And also, I challange all
other wad authors to do the same!, (after all,
the majority of us don,t get paid for making wads
anyway!; so not letting anyone use your wad as a
base, is really just an ego trip;---Isn't it? !!!).
...............Too Bad--So Sad!!..................
At least beginners would have a good place to start;
then mabe we won't have to wade through as many bad
wads, to find the good ones! This concept should
eventually make all the wads offered, on the Net,
2. After you have completed your new wad, (using mine
as a base), put your name on it, take full credit
for it! -You don't need to mention my name anywhere,
(but I would be happy if you did so, in your text
file; but it's not manditory!) Just remember, your
new wad will have your name on it, so just make sure
its better than mine!, or else what's the point!!!!!
3. If you want different weapons placement or different
monsters, in different places, I would encourage you
to download ED209, (probably the easiest wad editor
to use, to change, weapons, monsters and textures).
(You can do most of the weapons and monster changes
in less than 5 minutes!). - If you noticed, I also
used a program called RMB, and another called Zennode.
RMB and Zennode are not needed to build or change wads,
they just help to speed up the wad a little. --- All
of these fine programs are available, as Shareware,
many places on the Net.
4. If your wad has any bugs, even just a small one,
that's hard to find, even if your looking for a
mistake, then, don't put it on the Net!. Fix it
first, or get some help to fix it, or delete it!!!.
People can forgive you for making boring wads once
in a while, but not defective, ugly, trash. (I go
over my wads in great detail before releasing them;
we also play test em for weeks, sometimes months,
working on the layout, weapons and monsters, ect.
I would be totally ashamed of some of the garbage
that's on the Net, if my name was attached to it.
You have to be a perfectionist, to produce even
a boring wad that works good, without bugs; even
a bad wad takes a little time and effort to make,
so why go to all the time and trouble...........
to produce garbage!!!!
You may distribute 1phobwar.wad and 2phobwar.wad,
provided you include this text file, with no
modifications to them, and this text file.
You may distribute 1phobwar.wad and 2phobwar.wad,
in any electronic format, (bbs, diskette, cd, etc),
as long as you include this text file intact with
If you combine 1phobwar.wad and or 2phobwar.wad with
other wads, this text file must be included with the
new combo wad or wads.
