³Odyssey (Level) ³
¯The above address is for my school so if you do send
me anything please put FAO John Adlington in
¯A New Version of Odyssey is Coming Soon for 486's!
Description: ¯This is my THIRD fully working Doom level.
¯The SECOND standard level!
Set in an old abandoned mansion, you enter
into the house as a hired detective looking for
an important manuscript.
But the problem is that there are rumors that
monsters have overtaken the old mansion.
Picking up your pistol and leaving your office,
YOU (Private Dick/Family Man) say, "To hell with
the rumours." What a guy!
As you arrive at the mansion you see a dazzling
light show outside through the windows. You know
something is in there but you want the money you're
being paid, so sod 'em.
The final words as the door closes behind you can
heard for miles: "Oh, bugger," And there you begin.
Additional Credits: ¯The makers of DEEP. ID for DOOM & DOOM ][.
¯Plus my beta testers. All Daniel Bromley of them.
Without constructive criticism this wad would be
much, much worse... Or maybe the same.
¯And PC Gamer for publishing my previous WADs.
¯Thanks to Ivan Hosgood. You finally left! :)
* Play Information *
Game : Doom ][
Episode and Level # : Map 01
Single Player : Yes, of course.
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes, but it will not be any different to normal
play. (Even if co-op was easier, you still
seem to lose more energy.)
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yes, but not recommended.
Difficulty Settings : Yes*
New Sounds : Yes, just a few new effects, this makes the WAD
file a lot larger.
New Graphics : Yes, the titlepic and the sky texture.
New Music : Yes, Home By The Sea.
Demos Replaced : 1, just me showing how to do the first part
before stupidly killing yourself.
*NOTE: ¯The medium difficulty level is hard enough for very good doom
¯If you are one of those 'demi-gods' then HARD is for you. This is
missing some of the key power-ups and is much harder.
¯Medium was designed with a good player in mind, if you are
nowhere near good enough to even last 5 seconds, then its easy I'm
afraid. :( This has a few extra power-ups and much less enemies.
** ¯I finished the level on medium "just".
* Construction *
Base : New level from scratch.
Build Time : A stupidly long time.
Completion Date : First version completed 23 October 1996 22:38
Editors used : Deep 8.35
Paint Shop Pro V.4
Known Bugs : ¯1, when you leave the maze you may stop to look
at a HOM which chops off the top of the inside
walls. This is caused by the different heights
of the sectors. Nothing major.
¯Apparantly there is a HOM at a certain secret
part in the maze. I cannot tell you where it
is because then it would defeat the object.
¯No other known bugs.
VERSION 1: ¯FIRST VERSION INFLICTED ON THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
VERSION 1.01: ¯Took out a fairly stupid sound for the switch.
¯Added a new sky texture.
¯Replaced In The Air Tonight mus file with Home By
The Sea mus file.
VERSION 1.21: ¯The room with the teleporter allowed you to teleport
4 times instead of once so I intergrated it into

the one with the teleporter), but now you can
¯Added a little scenery.
