ADDICT1 - ADDICT4.WAD (4 first levels in this wad)
POVDOOM graphics patch (500+ frames of new sprites)
(The oldest of these wads don't always look too
good... But they're my first Doom2 wads.)
I'm also a co-author of the stunning 11-level episode DYSTOPIA3 (DYST3.ZIP)
and the massive 32-level REQUIEM that hasn't been released yet.
Misc. Author Info : Who did say I'm miscellaneous, anyway?
Description : Kill your friends, laughing sadistically on their
hopeless efforts when they try to escape you. Oh,
almost forgot: These places look good, too!
There's three demos we recorded after 4am, when the
fragfest had been going on for 8 hours or so...
There's some misreacting, but who cares? :)
All you guys who read this online in the net:
this is the best looking deathmatch wad you'll ever
find there. I used plenty of cool 3-d effects which
make these levels look more like Quake than ordinary
Yes, I HAVE Quake. Uh, well, I think some of these
levels are more detailed than Quake levels, so they
don't look too much like Quake after all. :)
Map01: The Great Hall
This is rather small shotguns-only level, mainly for 2-player game... But if
you need truly non-stop action, try with 4 players. But that really needs IPX
network, 4-player game with 14400 modems is SLOW! (So all you BBS players,
the later maps are for you... the large size helps the slowness)
Map02: Red Cross ?
This is a bit larger, more outdoor style level; ROCKS in 4-player game if you
have faster network than slow modems... Then a little hint: The red cross can
give you a super shotgun... (or chaingun or berserk, depends on diff.level)
Have you ever been deathmatching in a place where there's simply no room to
make a good evasive movement? If not, this is something new to you. The level
is a small castle with narrow passageways and plenty of good snipe spots...
The way to win is to make good use of the environment. (And not get stuck in a
little room when a shotgun-addicted deathmatch terminator is on your back...)
Map04: Killer's Instict
This is the most "quakish" level of the series... Mainly indoors, and cool
architecture. In 4-player game you'll get great mass-meetings at the place
where's chainguns... One starting place contains a secret, you can find the
berserk and an extra armor.
Map05: The Tower
This one I made because the others are not always big enough for 4 players,
I mean good players... So this is bigger, containing more weapons and stuff.
The main tower is the only way to get the megasphere and plasma gun... But
these two can be "blocked" :)
Map06: X Rivers
I hadn't used the real-3d bridge effects in a deathmatch wad before, so I did
this. The map is large enough for 4 players, but it doesn't have the plasma
gun. There's a supercharge in the middle, and it'll surely lure many players
to their deaths... Also, it's often useful to collect the chainsaw before
going for the rocket launcher (you'll see why ;)
Map07: Deadly Architecture
This level has five different buildings... the one in the middle has dozens of
windows, and it looks like a sniper's paradise: From the two "towers" you can
see (and shoot) everything... But after all, it's very likely that somebody
gets behind you - with a rocket launcher!
Map08: Snipe spots :)
Hehe, OK, I know there's better names in existence. But this describes the
level well enough. Basically, this map is a large open area with a tower in
the middle, high ledges leading to other buildings. Again, the level is full
of pillars, windows, stairs etc. But this time, everything can be seen at
once! God knows why it doesn't crash. :)

DETH for texture aligning :)
Graphic and misc.editors: Deluxe Paint, Image Alchemy, GWS, Wintex, Deusf
Known Bugs : Nope. Or.. well, you can see the sky flickering in
one place in the 5th level... you'll hardly ever go
there, though. I couldn't fix this without reducing
details which make the level so good...
May Not Run With... : Duke Nukem 3d
(Knowing what age most dukers are, this must be said)
[Nope, I don't like Duke]
In other Doom ][ versions than 1.9 you can't see the
demos... So when you start this in single-game for
looking around, press enter IMMEDIATELY at the title
screen, or use "-warp" option.
