Misc. Author Info : Author of many a Dragon Warrior fanfic. Check out:
Also, author of many a Dehacked patch file--
hopefully more people'll notice that someday--all
of which had the same sappy author info:
I exist. And existance is good. Unless you're
near the Borg. Then existance is futile. Or is
that resistance? Hmm...
::vomits:: Well, no more...I've done too much to
discredit myself with that...witness my (the?) last
Dehacked work with that author info anywhere in it!
(I'll pause and let the cheering subside.)
Description : I hope you all have heard of D2xGold, but since you
probably haven't, here goes:
This site will lead you to the original versions.
Doom2x is a series of TCs involving Comtar of the
X-world, who has taken over the Icon of Sin and is
using that to take over the Earth. These TCs have
their bad points--most stuff besides the Dehacked
patches are reused, a lot of the graphics/sound
replacements are kinda cheesy, the difficulty is
unfathomable--but for all the series's bad points,
D2xGold has at least one good point: the
Technomage. This enemy has graphics and sounds
reused from Hexen, but it's a completely new enemy
that'll stick in your mind WAY more than that other
mage. (What was its name? <g>) This is because
the Dark Bishop's (oh yeah) graphics and sounds
fit the Technomage's evil, frustrating nature.
However, I know that few people know of D2xGold,
and few have fought with this horrible entity. So,
I've created this: the Arch-Mage. The Archvile is
replaced with a mockup of the Technomage that
looks and sounds...vaguely like him <g> and acts
exactly like him. Good levels to find Arch-Mages
are Levels 11 and 28; Level 23 will really show you
you their power but only after a romp through part
of the level.
This patch is designed to give a brief preview of
this horrifying enemy. The Arch-Mage is relentless
and mobile, and its powers are lethal. But this is
only a taste of the fear-inducing Technomage, which
is only one of the many new enemies of D2xGold.

--Final notes: Chuck, if you are reading this, sorry I didn't ask permission
before I released this, but well, you tend to not respond to me...maybe it's
cause I mail you five times at once, then stop for half a year or more....
Anyway, hopefully, you'll understand that this isn't trying to rip off, but
advertise Doom2x--I even did my own code, though I referenced to yours--and
it can only help its popularity. Doom2x Legacy awaits!
Finally--just who made this patch template!? I'm just curious, that's all.
