Misc. Author Info : An avid Doomer since 12/10/93 (The Day),
now working with a cool new P90 (Yay!)
at home and the 386/40 (Yuck!) at school.
A sophomore at U of Michigan, currently
studying CS. I haven't made a deathmatch
WAD yet, so I had to try my hand at it!
Description : A deathmatch designed with fun and balance
in mind. The feeling of this level is fairly
open, just a few largish rooms and some
interconnecting passageways. It's not
intended to be a frag-fest, but more of a
fair competition. (Average life span is
greater than 5 seconds... :)
Everyone has a weapon nearby when they
start, generally within 10 or 20 feet.
All players start with 200% health, to
make the battles a little longer lasting.
The deathmatch spots are designed to
eliminate unfair "start-up frags".
Every weapon is available, although it is
more and more difficult to get to the
more powerful weapons. There are some weapons
sitting in cages, with a switch next to 'em;
hit the switch to give access to that weapon
elsewhere in the level.
A quick rundown:
Rocket launcher: switch and weapon itself
are in the arch-room.
Plasma: has two triggers, the switch and
walking on one of the ledges.
BFG: The easiest weapon to get, but you
pay if you do. Or, go the hard way (no
secrets involved, but still a long ways
to get there), find the BFG-in-a-cage,
and get it that way. You'll be off free
as a bird.
Super Shotgun: (Doom ][) Check the green
It's a very good idea to play this level with
the alt-death rules. <hint hint>
The exit switch is clearly marked, non-coop,
and can't be hit accidentally.
