-= Breakin' Out =-
After fighting off the throngs of hell and kicking
major ass, you wonder if it's actually over. You
are _the_ man of the world, girls want to have your
baby, you could run for president, so forth. Still
you wonder if some Hell spawn might have survived.
A year has passed, and you have heard rumors about
a secret base in the South American Andes. These
rumors subsided, and it was forgotten. But then,
in a small country in South America, mysterious
troops brutally put down a huge revolt that should
have been all too successful. The government had no
major defenses and inferior weapons. Pictures
coming back from the showed what looked like normal
troops. But you knew better. Those soldiers were
the same soldiers you killed more than a year ago.
You use your well-earned clout to get stationed
close to the area. You gather info on the troops
and you discover that it's all tied to the secret
base in the mountains. Your curiosity gets the best
of you and you head out on a scouting mission. All
you pack is your trusty pistol as you head out. You
easily find a way into the base and you see that it
is run by the same company that started this whole
mess. You see gigantic cages, vats, pits, and most
of all, DEMON SPAWN!! You almost crap in your pants
when you see all the Hellians that they had. They
must have cloned them all from the bloody mess you
had made out of them. The UAC had been allowed to
respawn all the demented things that you had worked
so hard to destroy! You rush back down the mountain
to see if you can use your fame to stop the UAC
from making the same mistake they did more than a
year ago. In your haste, you fail to notice a
UAC patrol coming up on your side. You hear a
former human shout, "FREEZE OR...", and you shoot
him down in mid-sentence. It is then that you here
the launch of a missle in the air and the stunning
scream of a pissed CyberDemon. You turn only to look
into the barrel of several chainguns, shotguns, and
rifles. The last thing you remember is wondering
how the UAC could control these beings as CyberDemon
knocks you out cold. You're now in some sort of
holding cell. Fortunatly, your guard is a former
human. You take him out as soon as you wake up.
Now, your mission is clear. Wipe out the base and
any chance that the demons might come back.
Hopefully they also respawned all the weapons and
artifacts that you found while fighting in Hell and
Hopefully they don't know you've broken out.
Hopefully I can type fast.
Instructions : Put all those zipped files in your DOOM II
directory, run Dehacked (it'll back up your exe
so don't sweat it), then type "B" and hit enter.
The B.EXE executable file detects whether or not
you have the DOOMHACK.EXE and asks you which
exe that you want to use. If it finds only the
DOOM2.EXE, it will automatically run BREAK.WAD
with it. It will also check BREAK.WAD for
tampering, and it _will_ let ya know if it
If you need more instructions, then you should
let up on the video games.
Advice : If this PWAD does anything you don't like, trash
it. It wasn't us who forced it onto your hard
drive. If this PWAD makes you want to maim us,
kill us ,or do any other sort of bodily harm, you
need to stop playing DooM II for a little while.
Neither Brian or Jason will accept liability for
the PWAD, nor for the executable.

* Hints *
Now that you've read this far, some juicy tidbits for all you beginners:
1. A lot of unmarked secrets are in these levels. Watch the demos! All
techniques and secrets are shown in the demos! The demos to the first
six levels are included. The first three are built in, so those are
easy. The last three are in another wad, but to see those just type
DOOM2 -FILE BREAK.WAD BDEMOS.WAD
- or -
DOOMHACK -FILE BREAK.WAD BDEMOS.WAD
(you need DooM II v.1.9 to see demos)
2. Save a lot! I always have 1 save-game slot open for home-brew wads, but
if you don't, back up a slot in another directory and use it for now. Of
course you could just risk it...
3. Skull keys are keys to secret doors! You got to find the secret door
4. If you see something that's too easy, it is. Save the game and then
go for it. <A BFG in MAP06 comes to mind...>
5. (cheat) That's right. If you just suck and need an easy way out, go
ahead. Just beware, the Dehacked patch will spit out an annoying
6. Send us money! When you send money to us, you get that warm, fuzzy
feeling that enhances your game. Trust us! Your game will improve!
