Author : Limbs a Flyin' [Chris Coulter]
Email adress : only have a School one ;( you shouldnt bother though,
I only use the School network, say about 3-6 times
a year? Anyway.. i *think* this is it..
COULTERP@JUNO.SHIRLEY.SCHOOL.CO.NZ but Im not making any
promises... and dont expect a reply. [sorry]
Misc. Author Info : Erm... here goes..
Very good at WAD skills,
eg textures, sounds, flats, sprites, music, misc gfx,
maps, some data lumps.. [thats all of it?]
Also quite handy with 'ol Dehacked too.
******************** NOTE *****************************NOTE***********************
This was one of my very first levels, so some of you
may consider it to be a bit sad. No worry, ive
improved my WAD creating abilities quite alot
since I built this lev. [And another thing: quite a
bit of the 'GSTONE' texture, no, it's NOT a generic
texture with my editor; I liked it at the time ;) ]
It was also planned to be in 'AKDOOM.WAD' which
became 'FINAL.WAD' which then went on to be
'ATTACK.WAD' ('cos romour had it at the time id
were going to release a FINAL.WAD). ATTACK was
supposed to be a 30 lev dm wad, new sounds, gfx, mus,
even new flats and more, (including a Dehacked DOOM2.EXE)
but that never happened. I was builing it with a few others
who i only knew via Nomads OnLine BBS,(03-3651856,
Christchurch, New Zealand... subtle costless plug >8})
but however, the others didn't want to do it anymore,
or even play DOOM anymore [1 of 'em sold up his account
on NOL!]. So i was left with a shambles of a WAD with
many under half-built levels..
Anyway, i finaly released it, 7 lev dm WAD with a few
sounds, but full of little graphics [eg, stat bar,
message text, misc. stuff for the menus],
each lev has new music [some old, some new i think].
And so this level was abandoned [weak in comparason
to my levs for ATTACK], until i found it again
today. Have fun..
Description Started out as using the first level of s/w Rise
of the Triad as a (very) rough base. actuly built
most of it from memory, but ends up to be quite
different than the original. Even has the music
thrown in too.
Designed for DeathMatch realy, but has quite a few
monsters bunged in too, if you need 'em.
Additional Credits to : Whoever made WadAuthor, my fav editor,
NWT 1.3 [only to stick the mus file in]
Er, Midi2mus I suppose...
And of course we can't forget Apogee [sp?] for the
music, the original map for the base [sorta]
and of course ROTT itself. [Even if nobody
plays/likes/has it, awful tile based maps, ick]
* Play Information *
Episode and Level # : MAP01
Single Player : Yes, few monsters throwen in for good measure.
Cooperative 2-4 Player : I think so, can't remember if i put the starts in,
but I almost always do, so they are probably there.
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : Yep! Thats why i built it in the first place.
Difficulty Settings : Uh, another thing i forgot if i have or not. I
think I did, think a couple of Invun. spheres appear
on skill 4-5 [or do they appear in multi-player?]
New Sounds : Naa
New Graphics : nope
Demos Replaced : none
* Construction *
Base : New level from scratch, well not realy.. using
a ROTT level as a rough base..
Build Time : A couple of days, when i felt like it.
Editor(s) used : WadAuthor, duuno the ver, NWT+Midi2mus briefly.
Known Bugs : None, I think. Unless when you shoot projectiles
into the sky [you'll see] and they dissapear [but
not always], but thats actuly normal.
Oh yeah, musn't forget:
The exit is reached by crossing an invisible
bridge over a pit of lava. could drive you insane
trying to get there, but im sure many of you will
look at it with level editors or maybe the map cheat.
[BOOO, HiSSSSSS! You should try to cross it with out
knowing where it is! >>8-) ]

* Where to get this WAD *
I am hoping that you got the WAD with this text..
* Other WAD's by the same author *
ATTACK -- 7 lev DM WAD compiled by me, but i did build the first 2 levs
from scratch. Other levs from the other people who were creating
it with me.
LAFSPRTE -- My very own Sprite WAD! i never got it finished, so i left it
as it is. Couple of guns changed, and players have blue pants..
FRENZY -- [To Be Announced]
I hope to get this one finished before THAT Q game takes over..
Level 1 rip [ don't we love 'em? ;) ]
I have done a few other bits and pieces but I dont think i can remeber all of them.
eg Converted E4M4 to Doom2 [plus music and gfx, including a TEXTURE2 resource]
Made a RTS file for DUKE 3D [various.rts i think? i currently ignore duke3d,
anyway was just a bunch of old sounds from WADs]
Possibly a few more that i have forgotten about..
I think after FRENZY [if i finish it, of course ;)] i might try my hand at
Descent missions... if i can figure out how to get the editor to work and not crash..
If you are ever on Nomads sometime, possibly through a telnet connnection or what ever
[dont know much about Internet terms], you'll find me under the user-id of Limbs
I think that covers everything..
Thank you for your time.
[Even if the WAD is a bit old and boring ;)]
Phew, 2:21 am, im off to sleep for a while..
