Misc. Author Info :
Description : This is my first level, but don't let that put you off... hey,
it even has an exit :). Seriously, it's gotten good reviews
from some well known Wad authors. Try it out.
This level is rather difficult in the higher skill modes and is not
suited for beginners in any skill setting. I tried to design it
such that the higher the skill setting, the more secrets
you would need to find in order to complete the level. WATCH YOUR
AMMO and remember, there's more than one way to kill a monster!
This is the first release of this wad to the internet. All previous
releases have been to compuserve. This wad has nothing to do with
the Quake "Soldier of Fortune" levels. I didn't even know they existed
when I first released this wad (July, 97).
Story (such that it is) : You're in your home... well, mansion actually... after all you did
well on Phobos and on earth against the alien hords... the
military pays well for expertice such as yours. Life has become
routine, mundane. You miss the excitment, the thrill of victory <g>.
You wake up and make your way to the library... what's that...
an intruder! You think nothing of it until... Here we go again!

* Construction *
Base : New level from scratch
Build Time : Mucho.
Editor(s) used : DCK 3.61, DETH, RMB, ZenNode v 0.98b, BSP v 2.1X, DCC, WinTex, Patcher.
Known Bugs : Possible visplane from the red key room in multiplayer. This only
happens if both doors to the stairs are open and one player is at
the back of the room by the Baron cage. In order to keep this from
happening, exit together. This cannot happen in single player mode.
I removed a lot of lighting effects from the center of this room, in
order to minimize this problem, for this release so it doesn't look
as good as it once did :(. Several other areas are very close to
visplane and may show up in multiplayer.
NOTE: This wad has been tested in DOS DooM2. Some visplanes/HOMs may occur
in Doom95 high resolution modes due to added screen size.
Bugs fixed/additions: -Player not dying fast enough in one area (could still crop up in
multiplayer). Thanks to Matt Dixon for finding this one.
-Multiple co-op problems fixed... You can now complete wad in co-op. Extra
rad suits, blue key, some health, ammo and monsters added for co-op.
-Visplane problem in red key room removed for single player... reduced
-A few extra signs added.
-Intro/intermission music, intro and intermission screens added.
Note: I tried to leave this wad pretty much in it's original form
other than for needed bug fixes.
