* Important Info *
This wad is THIRD in the NOCHEAP! series. The first wad is called
"NOCHEAP!.WAD". Duh... The second is called STONEHNG.WAD. They
are both available at FTP.TRADER.COM.
The Nocheap concept is simple. Everyone gets an equal start, hidden from
view from the other players. This elimenates the regen frag that every
one says "man! That was a cheap ass frag!" When it happens.
To this end, all players start in a "Bacta Tank" that the can see out of,
but no one can see into. When they exit it, they get a super shotgun
and a liscense to kill. There is no way to re-enter a bacta tank.
Before I go on... even though I made this wad from scratch, it was
strongly influenced by the floor plan of Mega.wad map 5. (DWANGO5.WAD
map 17) I would like to acknowledge the author of that wad, whoever
you may be. Thanks for creating such a cool wad.
I am kinda of keeping a couple of trends running through out the NOCHEAP!
series. For one, people seem to like the bacta tank idea, so it is of
course staying. People also like the difficult to get energy weapons.
They LOVE the danger involved in getting one. There is no mistaking the
succesion of clicks that involve getting the plasma gun or BFG. Every
one knows where you are, and you must WAIT to get the weapon. A very
deadly and exciting combination.
Also, notice the lack of health and armor in here. Get used to it. <G>
This is also perhaps the fastest fragging wad I have ever created. In
the maiden voyage of this wad, me and fellow doomer Acejas racked up a frag
total of 106 - 85 in his favor... in just 17 minutes.
If you play this and enjoy it, email me! I am doing some more
levels based on the regeneration theme, and those of you that have made
intelligent comments and suggestions, I have and will be adding these to
my future wads. So... if you have complaints, suggestions, ect... you know
how to find me... Darkwing@trader.com.
