Title : Base DM #1
Filename : BASEDM1.WAD
Author : Sir Robin (Jani Saksa)
Email Address : email@example.com
Other work from author : Level designer in Ninja DooM
Main guy in KTA and Quake->DooM conversion
Misc. Author Info : DooM freak. I like single player mode, but I love
Co-op & Deathmatch!
I have a webpage that I update 1-2 times in week
with 2-5 new WAD reviews at:
Description : Base style deathmatch level. Very small and
tight... inspired by MAP07 of DooM 2, but better
and more detailed. DON'T fall in slime!
Additional Credits to : Kurt Kesler. I borrowed few graphics from his WAD (KBoom #9).
I also got some inspiration from his base-style levels to start my
own base-style level pack. Well... Kurt's levels are single player,
and these are deathmatch!
David Wood (hakx) for the music (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Berzerk for the new sounds.
Geoff Coovert (email@example.com). I took his AP.WAD and merged
it to this WAD. Now you can view players death from all directions!
Id software for making the best 3d-shooter ever (and Q2 too).
* Play Information *
Map Number : MAP01
Single Player : If you wan't to look around
Cooperative 2-4 Player : Starts are there, but Co-op deathmatching sucks!
Deathmatch 2-4 Player : HELL YES! 8 starting points.
Difficulty Settings : No. It's a deathmatch WAD
New Sounds : Yes (mostly taken from KTA, which is a project that
New Graphics : Yes
New Textures : Yes (based on original DooM. Taken from KBooM #9)
New Sprites : Yes. Player death frames from all 8 directions!
New Music : Yes!
Demos Replaced : 1/3
Demo Explanation : Me and my nameless friend are fragging each others
(I'm fragging more). We had a frag limit of 20,
so this fight ends when I finally get 20 frags.
You can watch my friends lousy playing by changing
player view with F12-key.
I must say that my friend playes lousy because
BooM gets really choppy and unplayable in multi-
player games on the machine he played on.
NOTE : This might be slow on some 486's.
* Construction *
Base : New level from scratch (inspired by level 7 of DooM 2)
Editor(s) used : DETH for the actual editing

WinTex for graphics and sounds
NWT for few things that were hard or impossible to do with WinTex
Build time : 4-10 hours... Not really sure.
Known Bugs : None! Why would I left bugs in the level???

* ZDooM problems *
ZDooM v. 1.14a can run this WAD somehow. Earlyers DON'T work with it, and
later versions may work perfectly.
v. 1.14a has following problems with this WAD:
1) You can't get the shotgun that scrolls on the conveyor belt, because
ZDooM doesn't support BooM's silent teleporter which is used to teleport
the weapon back to beginning of the belt when it comes to end.
2) You can get out of the slime, and that's not what I wanted. I could make
it deeper, but I like the look of it right now!
3) When you dive underwater in the pool, the screen doesn't go blue. This
is not a big deal, but just a cosmetic bug.
4) You can't see through the glass window! This is a major cosmetic bug!
Let's hope that ZDooM supports translucent textures in next version.
Generally ZDooM works quite well with the level, and if you like it more,
feel free to use it.
