* Play Information *
Episode and Level # : Map 01 of Doom 2
Single Player : Yes
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, but it's not designed for it, and it's much too big.
Difficulty Settings : Implemented in most (but not all) rooms.
New Sounds : No
New Graphics : Yes
New Music : Music replaced with E1M7 from Doom 1.
Demos Replaced : Sort of; type 'cpdemo' in the Doom II directory for a

* Construction *
Base : New level from scratch
Editor(s) used : DCK, NWT, WinTex
Known Bugs : Avoid attempting to save your games, as the level is too
big for games to save successfully. Just pretend you're
playing Descent :)
* Copyright / Permissions *
Authors probably shouldn't use this level as a base to build additional
levels. It's too big already...
