* Play Information *
Level # : This is v3.1 effecting MAP01 thru MAP07.
This release attempts to address the following
ATB v3.0 known bugs:
1) Transporter in MAP07 that was supposed
to get you to final key (YELLOW) and
thereby permit you to look at the
area I spent TWO WEEKS busting my ASS
on, failed. Even though, I testing this
sequence over and over. I discovered
the bug AFTER I posted the PWAD. DAMN!!!
Can't figure out why it's not working, so
I re-built another one from scratch. Like
my Grandpa once told me: "If there's a stump
in the field, I plow around it".
2) Fixed some problems in ATB v3.0 INSTALL
������������������ v3.0 WORK AROUND: ����������������
�� If you have v3.0, then you're stuck on last ��
�� ATB cylinder (Transporter there FUBAR). ��
�� Since you're there, you know where yellow key ��
�� is. Cheat (IDCLIP toggle), so that you can ��
�� observe trippy stonehedge area in outer space. ��
�� If you've gotten ATB v3.1 (this one), then ��
�� forget everything I just said, sorry - Jeff. ��
This PWAD delivers:
1) Seven very large maps (+3 meg) that require
all keys to solve. Cheats enabled, but not
2) Extensive new textures and flats throughout.
RSKY1 texture is truly impressive.
3) Several new animated objects.
3) SEVEN new monsters:
a. White and Blue DeathMatchers that
participate in single player games.
b. One invincible DeathMatcher. Doesn't attack,
instead causes you to use your strength
c. Bouncing Eye Balls that display a deadly
curiosity towards humans and turn inside
out spewing forth interior contents when
d: Waffen SS Soldiers standing over 60 FEET TALL!!
e: Purple Marble Oxen Heads.
f: Hugh Flying Dead Devils that spew forth
creatures too hideous to describe.
4) Enhanced DEATH sequences.
5) Support included for Deathmatch and Co-op play.
6) Alot of new audio, no new music.
7) Total development hours expended =
total hours since v1.1 BETA less hours spent
eating, sleeping, bathing etc, etc.
At least as much on testing, debug and walk
through. This PWAD would have sucked on just
about half of you if it weren't for B.P.
(One actual is worth a thousand simulations).
Play notes: 486/66 or better is recommended,
these levels are LARGE. MAP06 needs a
good video card as well.
This PWAD as is with all DOOM related
activities, should be enjoyed in dim light
preferably late in the evening, alone.
Deathmatches should be conducted with no
witnesses. Choose the largest screen size
your machine can comfortably handle.
Use a sound card. Choose the smallest gamma
correction setting possible. Gamma correction
only serves to wash the display out while
obscuring the deep, rich DOOM textures.
This PWAD can be completed by the average
player without cheating. Resort to this
only as an absolute last remedy necessary
to continue on in the level. Otherwise,
you are admitting that ATB is better
than what you are capable of sustaining.
If you've found that playing ATB has
been worthwhile/a waste, than pass it on
with my blessing/curse to a friend/enemy.
