Misc. Author Info : Enjoys Doom2 more than Duke.
The Mission is to find and shutdown the UAC Comm Center.
You begin pinned down in the entry room overlooking the Bosses Garden.Stay
alive until you are able to move out into the Garden.
Even though there is lots of ammo shoot straight and Don't waste it,
(e.g. don't use all your rockets & plasma) when other weapons will serve ,
You will need it later.
The same for health , eat it when you need it. Remember where you left it.
Experienced players seem to need about 50 to 70 min. to finish the mission.
Since its long, we save the game (F2) as each area is secured ?? .
If you are playing fast monsters using F3 to load a saved game will crash
doom2.Be sure that DOOM2 is restarted with the -FAST parameter.
Your shell: DM , D! , etc. can probably do this. You can do it manually,
(See Example command line at bottom)
Play it however you want to but this wad is intended to be played
Ultra Violence , Fast Monsters.
You probably will need to learn it on lower vio. levels with slow
Monsters before Uv & Fast are possible to do. There is a demo
included ( single player , fast, Uv , Standard Guns)
Demo note: Doom2 ver. 1.9 only
There are large amounts of plasma & rocket ammo for the benefit of those
with out a weapons patch.
Remember its nightime so don't crank the gamma levels (brightness) levels
too far . When looking out into the garden from the entry room windows you
should see areas which are flickering from the torch light and the floor of
the raised area (with the trees) should look like a green pool table top
would appear in torch light.
" Just play the game with a ( REALISTIC ) guns patch ,like
the superb " ROSSGUNS ".
Use ultra violence,fast monsters , and don't die or cheat.
If you can do these things, even though you have no friends
you can still be considered cool and feel safe and secure
in the knowledge that you really are better than someone at
something and you have my blessing.
God help you. Sincerely, DJ "

There is a lot of work in a wad like this so emailing me or posting
something to a Doom newsgroup might encourage me to do more wads.
All feedback is welcome and encouraged. email: email@example.com
To play this PWAD file, unzip it into the directory where you put your
DOOM2 wads then start DOOM2 like this:
DOOM2 -FILE PATH\GARDEN.WAD -WARP 07 -SKILL * -TURBO *** -FAST (If Desired)
where PATH= the location of your DOOM2 wads i.e. C:\GAMES\WADS\ ,( my setup)
where * = the skill level you want to play, i.e. -SKILL 3 , HURT ME PLENTY.
where *** = player speedup ( 0 TO 250 ) , i.e. -TURBO 200
type DOOM2 -PATH\FILE GARDEN.WAD
and then, after beginning a game at any episode/mission
and choosing a skill level, type IDCLEV07. This will take you to
the Boss's Garden at the skill level you chose.
To manually load a Fast Monsters saved game start DOOM2 like this:
