Description : A single room map, with all of the weapons,
and tons of ammo, and a whole horde of monsters.
A pretty big challenge for a player to
finish (the beginning is pretty rough) in a
single-player game, but I can do it, so you
should be able to as well! =O). I've never tried
it with > 2 players... It's kind
slow with multiple players until you kill off
most of the monsters, and then the speed improves
(this is on 486-66 Mhz machines with 128Kb cache)
The theme: The world's longest marble staircase!
To play this wad file, run:
doom -file stairwar.wad
If you can't solve the level, I've included a demo
of me solving it (stairwar.lmp). Only look at it
as a last resort, it spoiles everything!
To play the demo, run:
doom -playdemo stairwar -file stairwar.wad
Additional Credits to : Kenneth S. Forte, who wrote the ULTIMA.WAD file
which I base mine on (I couldn't get DEU to work
without crashing starting from scratch), although
this level barely resembles his level.
To the creators of DOOM and DEU - may all of you
be enshrined as gods in the years to come!

Authors MAY use this level as a base to build additional
levels. However, I don't recommend it! I was learning, so there
is no logic to most of the sectors, or any consistency. Use
ULTIMA.WAD to build off of instead, it's much more clean.
You MAY distribute this WAD, provided you include this file, with
no modifications. You may distribute this file in any electronic
format (BBS, Diskette, CD, etc) as long as you include this file
* Where to get this WAD *
When I get some more time, I'll put it up for grabs on my Mosaic home-
page (see above)! I'm still working on my home-page.
