Starting the madness:
All the CS3 files must be in your DOOM2 directory.
The first time you run CS3.bat, it will set up the
game. This will NOT modify any original data,
so DON'T WORRY.
The next times you start CS3, Cool Stuff 3 will start
up right away, unless you have deleted any of the
Multiplayer games in Cool Stuff 3:
A- Copy the CS3RUN.EXE over your Doom2.exe, then start
fighting with CS3.WAD (Just remember to BACK UP
Doom2.exe). All others who are playing must do this
B- Just use the normal Doom2, but with CS3.wad
Your new CS3 environment:
The Cool Stuff 3 environment has changed from the
normal Doom2 one. First, you can be protected
from projectiles by hiding behind trees, stumps, and
other large obstacles. This can be useful during a
large firefight. Another change is that if dead
bodies get in your way, shoot `em down! Yes, now
you can easily get rid of any dead thing that becomes
a problem. When you shoot them down, there is a nice
bloody splatter. Also, in Bloodfest (level 7), since
it is set in a post-war zone, some floors are very
frail an can give way as soon as you set foot on them.
You have been warned.
The inhabitants of Cool Stuff 3:
All the monsters are as usual, except the mancubus, the trooper, and
Sergeants are now Evil Marines: Twice as fast and twice as deadly as
the normal guys. The really fun part
about blowing 'em away is how fast and
far they fly!
Troopers have lead legs : They fall off edges really fast and
move really slow.
Mancubus is the Commander : Your target is the Evil Marine Commander.
This is him. Expect him to be wearing
something new and being three times as
tough to kill.
The firepower of Cool Stuff 3:
All the guns are as usual except
the Plasma gun.
Plasma gun is Charge Cannon : Hot off the UAC assembly lines, the LX-2
Charge Cannons are the latest of the plasma
arsenal. This gun which looks frighteningly
familiar to the Plasma Rifle, shoots a field
of invisible "Charged ion" particles. Once
these particles enter organic material,
expect a nice and bloody explosion. This baby
is so powerful that it can vaporize a
Cyberdemon in less than 2 seconds. For best
results, use at point blank range.
NOTE: This gun eats cells like popcorn.
ANOTHER NOTE: This gun was not designed for
deathmatch use. Hence, it will NOT be present
in deathmatches with Cool Stuff 3. Besides,
it wouldn't be fair, as you would get
vaporized in a split second.
The Story so far...:
After kicking alien ass, you'd think you'd get a little gratitude.
No, no, no, instead, for assault on many fellow officers (like you had a
choice?), you were thrown into an old prison filled with interplanetary
convicts. You spent over a year rotting in your cell, but then, dumb luck
gives you a chance to fight back.
On your execution day, you realize that the USMC itself has been
allying itself with the demons from hell. That's why you were put away.
Soon after lights-out, a stray explosive flies in through your window,
punches through the bars, and blows up in the cell across yours,
destroying it. The explosion revealed a passageway under a switch
which happened to be right in your cell. Now you may have a chance!
The only thing else you know about this prison is that there is a
helipad on the roof which is actually a teleporter. Wiping blood and sweat
from your face, you brace yourself to undertake the Bloodfest Missions,
created by you, to get out of this hell, enter another, and destroy the force
controlling all the corruption: the Evil Marine Commander.
I am not to be held responsible for any accidental damage of the DOOM2
files. If you don't start this with CS3.BAT, use it at your own risk.
