Zerius development DCK2 , and Matthew Ayres

* Play Information *
Episode and Level # : Levels 1 through to 20
Single Player : Yes
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes 4 player. Excellent CO-OP play.
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : All, But only a few would be good for DEATHMATCH.
Difficulty Settings : Most levels.
New Sounds : No
New Graphics : Yes.
New Music : Yes.
Demos Replaced : All, if Doom bombs out with an error when the demo
starts, you dont have version 1.9. Start a game
or load one before the demo comes on, and UPGRADE!
* Construction *
Base : All levels from scratch. Music from various wads.
New sky from darkcvnt.wad
Build Time : I dont know. I started making the levels in
October 1994 and spent hours. In March 1995 I
finished DKSHRINE 1 and released it. I then
started making more in November 1995, After making
a few I got the idea of improving DKSHRINE and
adding 9 new ones to make a new improved version.
Editor(s) used : WADED VER 1.42, DCK 2.2, WADCAT, NWT
TED v1.2, Zennode, RMB, Paint Shop Pro 3
Known Bugs : No way jose!
The old version of DKSHRINE did have bugs I didn't
pick up on till later, mainly due to the node
builder in WADED. A new version of WADED is out
which would have solved that problem.

You have heard rumours about a lost industrial base, but never
believed them. You were told the once in 1984 demonic noises could be heard
out of a structure, and demons took over and captured the base.
On your way back to earth you run into the base, and you have to get
through and destroy the last remains of the demon population. Unfortuantely
you discover it is in two parts, one somewhere between earth and hell, the
other god knows where, but you'll find out. Load the patch, it has the story
The levels are hard but quite playable with heaps of action.
The end is the shrine, you work out how to destroy it. It will be hard!
You must have played Doom 2 before to get through this. They are hard and
you will need you use the old grey matter, or whatever hasn't been destroyed
so far to get through. Some places may seem to difficult that you will think
that you will never get through. Simply use every tactic to your advantage
and you should be succesful. Remember, a good player doesn't just have good
aim and movement skills, a good player uses everything to his/her advantage.
Thanks for getting this. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
P.S. The patch doesn't load automatically. You have to
do it yourself using DeHackEd version 3.0 or later.
The file you run to run the shrine. You can use command line
Same as above, but uses DOOMHACK.EXE, for those that are using the
patch. You have to load the patch yourself, the BAT file does not
do it for you.
DKSHRINE -warp 11 -record demo2
Eliminates the need to hit enter when the
message appears telling you there has been an alteration.
The wad. It should be 2609577 bytes.
Dehacked patch. Replaces text and a graphic. If you have a version
of DeHackEd that can load the patch, I strongly recommend you do so
and run DKSHRIND.BAT
HELP ME !!
If the upgrade patches don't work with your version of DOOM II (1.666),
then you probably have a pirate version, which CANNOT be upgraded.
Q: Why do I die when I start level 12 ?
A: This is deliberate. You are supposed to start from scratch. Might
sound harsh but you get all your weapons back real soon anyway.
Q: I get stuck on a level, there seems to be no way out.
A: Look for arrows, health flasks of armour in the shape of an arrow. This
will lead you to a hidden switch, teleporter of hidden lift.
Q: How do I destroy the Shrine?
A: In the same waay you finish level 30 of Doom II. That is all I can say.
Just look for obvoius places to shoot rockets at. It isn't very hard.
I've rambled on enough.........
