CHAPTER [1]: Introduction 



*1-1*: A word from Hank Leukart 


        Happy DOOM Birthday! 


        It's not often that someone can ask me, "What were you doing at 

this very moment, one year ago?" and I would be able to answer.  Today, 

December 10th, 1994, is one of those rare occasions in which I know  



        Actually, I'm sure if I asked about half the readers of this  

FAQ, they would be able to give me details about their activities too.   

Most of us were sitting on Internet (or using every free moment to log  

on) waiting for DOOM to be released.  I remember staying up most of the  

night, disappointed when it wasn't release by 8am EST.  I waited,  

waited, and waited, until finally everyone located it on ""  

all at the same time.  Wow!  All the die-hard-DOOM-fans-to-be let out a 

sigh of release as the suspense was lifted. 


        In retrospect, it has been an incredible experience.  After 11  

revisions and thousands of pieces of E-mail, I'm still alive and sane!   

DOOM has taken up a large portion of my life (it's so addictive) and  

now, here I am, one year, later. 


        I hope everyone enjoys this "Anniversary Edition" of the  

"Official" DOOM FAQ v6.666.  It contains DOOM I and DOOM II information,  

the latest on DOOM ports, and all the coolest add-on utilities. 


        Now, I have a feeling it's going to all start over again with  

Quake!  Watch for the game in late 1995 from id.  Although this may or  

may not be last "Official" DOOM FAQ, it will definitely be awhile until  

the next revision--this covers just about everything. 


        Above all, "Keep on DOOMing!" 


        -Hank Leukart 


[1-2]: About the "Official" DOOM FAQ 


        Welcome to the post-release v6.666 of the "Official" DOOM FAQ.   

What does that mean?  Post-release is after the game is released,  

version 6.666 is a standard revision written after 5.8, "Official" means  

absolutely nothing, DOOM is the name of the game, and FAQs are  

[F]requently [A]sked [Q]uestions. 

        Here's how revision classification works.  If a new version of 

the FAQ only has a small amount of information changed or added, the version 

number is increased by 0.1.  This is called a "minor revision."  If a new 

version of the FAQ has a substantial amount of new information changed or 

added, the version number is increased by 0.5.  This is called a "standard 

revision." If a new version of the FAQ has a huge amount of added or changed 

information, major parts of the FAQ are rearranged, or major parts of the FAQ 

are rewritten, then the version number is increased by 1.0.  This is called a 

"major revision." 

        You may be wondering why chapter numbers are enclosed in either 

[]'s, ()'s, or **'s.  The definition of these is as follows: 


        []: Chapters enclosed in brackets mean that the information 

            contained in the chapter has not been updated in this or the 

            previous FAQ. 

        (): Chapters enclosed in parenthesis mean that the information 

            contained in the chapter has not been updated since the previous 


        **: Chapters enclosed in asterisks means that the information 

            contained in the chapter is new or has been updated for the 

            current version of the FAQ you are reading.

[1-6]: Acknowledgments 


          I'd like to thank id Software for creating such a GREAT 

game!  It definitely exceeds expectations.  I'd also like to thank them 

for helping me out, and getting involved with on-line users.  I'd like to 

thank the following on-line users for the following reasons: 




John Romero ( 


        What a guy!  He's been putting up with my infinite 

cross-examinations for six months now, and he still hasn't killed me!  He 

also read through the ENTIRE FAQ to give me a list of corrections for this 

release.  A BIG thanks, John!  (oh yeah, he also programmed that game -- 

what was it called?! :)) 


David Taylor ( 


        Three cheers for David Taylor!  His once-in-a-while "idNews" Usenet 

postings always seem to cut down the amount of E-mail I get for a few 

hours.  He also, has put up with me, and answered numerous questions. 


Jay Wilbur ( 


        You've got to admire this guy.  He puts his life and his family's 

life on the line everytime he posts a release date (or "within two weeks") 

on Usenet.  He's a great CEO, a great net representative, and handled the 

small island travel arrangements at a time in which we thought we might be 

pummeled. :) 


        And to everyone else at id Software, thanks for a great game!

[1-7]: Accurate Information 


        An attempt has been made to make the information in this FAQ as 

accurate as possible.  Unfortunately, due to the fact that the game 

was recently released, and updates, add-ons, and new information are being 

worked on each second, it's hard to keep up.  I had to stop myself from 

adding to the FAQ, because if I didn't it would have never been released! 

The original press release dated from January 1993 listed a few things that 

didn't go in the final game.  Some of those things were impossible to do 

after rewriting the 3-D engine 4 times over (for speed and size); other 

things just made no sense with the rest of the design.  Trust id Software. 

They know what they are doing.  DOOM is one great game! 







CHAPTER [2]: What is DOOM? 



        DOOM is a three dimensional, virtual reality type action game 

created by id Software.  In some ways, it is similar to Wolfenstein 3-D 

(id Software, Apogee). 

        In DOOM, you're a space marine, one of Earth's toughest, hardened in 

combat and trained for action.  Three years ago you assaulted a superior 

officer for ordering his soldiers to fire upon civilians.  He and his body 

cast were shipped to Pearl Harbor, while you were transferred to Mars, home 

of the Union Aerospace Corporation. 

        The UAC is a multi-planetary conglomerate with radioactive waste 

facilities on Mars and its two moons, Phobos and Deimos.  With no action for 

fifty million miles, your day consisted of suckin' dust and watchin' 

restricted flicks in the rec room. 

        For the last four years the military, UAC's biggest supplier, has 

used the remote facilities on Phobos and Deimos to conduct various 

secret projects, including research on inter-dimensional space travel. 

So far they have been able to open gateways between Phobos and Deimos, 

throwing a few gadgets into one and watching them come out the other. 

Recently however, the gateways have grown dangerously unstable. 

Military "volunteers" entering them have either disappeared or been 

stricken with a strange form of insanity--babbling vulgarities, 

bludgeoning anything that breathes, and finally suffering an untimely 

death of full-body explosion.  Matching heads with torsos to send home 

to the folks became a full-time job.  Latest military reports state 

that the research is suffering a small setback, but everything is 

under control. 

        A few hours ago, Mars received a garbled message from Phobos.  "We 

require immediate military support.  Something fraggin' evil is coming 

out of the gateways!  Computer systems have gone berserk!" The rest 

was incoherent.  Soon afterwards, Deimos simply vanished from the sky. 

Since then, attempts to establish contact with either moon have been 


        You and your buddies, the only combat troop for fifty million miles 

were sent up pronto to Phobos.  You were ordered to secure the perimeter of 

the base while the rest of the team went inside.  For several hours, your 

radio picked up the sounds of combat: guns firing, men yelling orders, 

screams, bones cracking, then finally silence.  Seems your buddies are dead. 

        Things aren't looking too good.  You'll never navigate off the 

planet on your own.  Plus, all the heavy weapons have been taken by 

the assault team leaving you only with a pistol.  If only you could get your 

hands around a plasma rifle or even a shotgun you could take a few down on 

your way out.  Whatever killed your buddies deserves a couple of pellets in 

the forehead.  Securing your helmet, you exit the landing pod.  Hopefully you 

can find more substantial firepower somewhere within the station.  As you 

walk through the main entrance of the base, you hear animal-like growls 

echoing throughout the distant corridors.  They know you're here.  There's no 

turning back now. 



CHAPTER [3]: What makes DOOM different from Wolfenstein 3-D? 



[3-1]: Texture-Mapped Environment 


        DOOM offers the most realistic environment to date on the PC. 

Texture-mapping, the process of rendering fully-drawn art and scanned 

textures on the walls, floors, and ceilings of an environment, makes the 

world much more real, thus bringing the player more into the game experience. 

Others have attempted this, but DOOM's texture mapping is fast, accurate, 

and seamless.  Texture-mapping the floors and ceilings is a big improvement 

over Wolfenstein 3-D.  With their new advanced graphic development 

techniques, allowing game art to be generated much faster, id brings 

new meaning to "state-of-the-art". 


[3-2]: Non-Orthogonal Walls 


        In other games (such as Wolfenstein 3-D), walls were always joined 

at ninety degrees to each other, and were always eight feet thick.  DOOM's 

walls are at many angles, and of any thickness.  Walls have see-through 

areas, like windows.  This allows more natural construction of levels.  If 

you can draw it on paper, you can see it in the game. 


[3-3]: Light Diminishing/Light Sourcing 


        Another touch adding realism is light diminishing.  With distance, 

your surroundings become enshrouded in darkness.  This makes areas seem huge 

and intensifies the experience.  This also creates some amazing effects; 

sometimes the lights go out, and you'll have to look for a light switch or 

light amplification visors.  Light sourcing allows lamps and lights to 

illuminate hallways, explosions to light up areas, and strobe lights to 

briefly reveal things near them.  These features make the game 

frighteningly real. 


[3-4]: Variable Height Floors and Ceilings 


        Floors and ceilings can be of any height, allowing for stairs, poles, 

altars, plus low hallways and high caves-allowing a great variety for rooms 

and halls. 

        In DOOM, monsters can be shot on levels that are higher or lower than 

you are.  All you have to do is aim horizontally, and DOOM will do the rest! 


[3-5]: Environment Animation and Morphing 


        In DOOM, the world reacts to you.  Many surfaces animate. 

A glowing wall-plate may change in appearance when you touch it. Radioactive 

ooze could seethe and bubble. 

        In earlier versions of the FAQ, I talked about environment animation 

and morphing.  id Software removed information terminals, access stations, 

and wall weapon damaging.  DOOM does include "crushing ceilings," however. 


[3-6]: Palette Translation 


        In earlier versions of the FAQ, I talked about many different 

types of palette translation.  Most of the palette translation has been 

removed from DOOM.  The only palette translations that are currently 

implemented in DOOM are for multi-player mode (other players are in 

different colors), invincibility mode and a few other special effects. 


[3-7]: Multiple Players 


        Up to four players can play over a local network, or two players 

can play by modem or serial link.  DOOM v1.2 supports modem play. 

You can see the other player in the environment, communicate with him or her, 

and in certain situations you can switch to their view.  This feature, added 

to the 3-D realism, makes DOOM a very powerful cooperative game and its 

release a landmark event in the software industry.  This is the first game to 

really exploit the power of LANs and modems to their full potential.  In 

1994, id Software fully expects to be the number one cause of decreased 

productivity in businesses around the world.  See Chapter [8] for more 

information on multi-playing. 


[3-8]: Smooth, Seamless Gameplay 


        The environment in DOOM is frightening, but the player can be at 

ease when playing.  Much effort has been spent on the development end to 

provide the smoothest control on the user end.  And the frame rate (the rate 

at which the screen is updated) is high, so you move smoothly from room to 

room, turning and acting as you wish, unhampered by the slow jerky motion of 

most 3-D games.  On a 386DX, the game runs well, and on a 486/33, the normal 

mode frame rate is almost as fast as television.  This allows for the 

most important and enjoyable aspect of gameplay: immersion. 


*3-9*: New Monsters and Artificial Intelligence 


        Wolfenstein 3-D is basically made up of a lot of closed rooms.  When 

you open a door, the guards get a chance to see you and opening the door 

connects your sound area to the revealed room's sound area, so a gunshot will 

be heard in both places. Guards in both places will respond to this kind of 

action.  In DOOM it's much more complex.  DOOM isn't made up of a bunch of 

rooms; it's a cohesive world.  You might blast your shotgun and the sound 

could travel through a window or slime-river tunnel to another entirely 

different area and alert some monsters.  Then, they'll come looking for 

you!  Opening doors, going down stairs, wading through slime, etc.  You are 

still able to get the drop on them from behind, just like in Wolfenstein 

3-D -- but you have to be sneakier about it. 

        There is a huge amount of enemies in DOOM and DOOM II.  Here is a 



        FORMER HUMANS (dudes in filth-covered combat suits):  Just a few days 

ago, you were probably swapping war stories with one of these guys.  Now it's 

time to swap some lead upside their head. They are the weakest of all 



        FORMER HUMAN SERGEANTS (dudes in black armor, also filthy):   

Same as above, but much meaner and tougher.  These walking shotguns  

provide you with a few extra holes if you're not careful! 


        IMPS (brown thorny hominids):  You thought an imp was cute  

little dude in a red suit with a pitchfork.  Where did these brown  

bastards come from?  They heave balls o' fire down your throat and take  

several bullets to die.  It's time to find a weapon better than that  

pistol if you're going to face more than one of these S.O.B.s. 


        DEMONS (pink horrors, vaguely humanoid):  Sorta like a shaved  

gorilla, except with horns, a big head, lots of teeth, and harder to  

kill. Don't get too close or they'll rip your fraggin' head off. 


        SPECTRES (vague, half-formed shapes):  Great.  Just what you  

needed.  An invisible (nearly) Demon. 


      + LOST SOULS (flying skulls): Dumb.  Tough.  Flies.  On fire.   

Flying skills with a hot temper.  They like to go for a screaming  

head-on collision. 


      + CACODEMONS (gigantic floating one-eyed heads):  They float in the 

air, belch ball-lightning, and boast one Hell of a big mouth.  You're toast 

if you get too close to these monstrosities. 


        BARONS OF HELL (you'll know `em when you see `em):  Tough as a dump 

truck and nearly as big, these goliaths are the worst thing on two legs since 

Tyrannosaurus Rex.  Watch out for the green plasma they fling at you. 


      + CYBERDEMON (rocket shooting colossus):  When you get to the end of 

the second episode of DOOM, you'll know.  Get ready to see this guy a  

lot more often in DOOM II. 


      + SPIDER MASTERMIND (huge robotic chaingun shooting spider):  It  

will make you wish you never were playing DOOM in the first place.   

Watch for it at the end of the third episode of DOOM, and numerous times  

in DOOM II. 


      # HEAVY WEAPON DUDE (overweight sergeants with chain guns):  These 

guys are probably the first new enemy you will encounter in DOOM II.  

They are more disgusting looking that sergeants, and are also more  

deadly due to their chain gun. 


      # HELL KNIGHT (brown colored Baron of Hell):  Slightly easier to  

kill than our friend the Baron, but appear in larger numbers. 


      # ARACHNOTRON (toddler version of the Spider Mastermind):  Smaller  

than the Spider Mastermind, and a lot harder to kill, but there are a  

lot more of these guys.  Watch for its BFG9000-like green plasma. 


      # PAIN ELEMENTAL (even more disgusting huge Cacodemon-like blobs):   

Watch out for these guys, they fly around and fire Lost Souls at you.   

If you don't kill them quick enough, the Lost Souls will eat you for  



      # REVENANT (skeletons with a bad temper):  These huge skeletons  

are just cruel.  They punch and kick the life out of you, and also enjoy  

launching flaming rockets into your torso. 


      # MANCUBUS (overweight walking blob with guns for arms):  He is  

fat, ugly, and like shooting enormous fireballs into you from his arms. 


      # ARCH VILE (flaming spirits):  Not only does he summon the fire  

elementals to watch you go up in flames, he revives already dead demons  

while he's at it. 


+:  Not found in the shareware version of DOOM 

#:  Only found in DOOM II 



*3-10*: Weapons 


        Here's a list of weapons that are in DOOM.  Don't try using these at 

home. :) 


        (1) Fist 

        (2) Chain Saw 

        (3) Pistol 

        (4) Shotgun 

      # (5) Super Shotgun (double barreled) 

        (6) Chain Gun 

        (7) Rocket Launcher 

      + (8) Plasma Rifle 

      + (9) BFG9000 


+: Denotes a weapon not implemented in the shareware version. 

#: Denotes a weapons found only in DOOM II. 


[3-10-1]: What does BFG9000 stand for? 


        Being the most powerful weapon, the only thing BFG9000 could stand 

for would be "Big Fraggin' Gun." :) 



CHAPTER [4]: Who created DOOM? 



        DOOM was created by id Software, and is also published by 

id Software. 

        Id Software is made up of the following dedicated people: 


        - John Romero     Coder         - 

        - John Carmack    Coder         - 

        - Dave Taylor     Coder         - 

        - Adrian Carmack  Artist        - 

        - Kevin Cloud     Artist        - 

        - Jay Wilbur      CEO           - 

        - Sandy Peterson  Designer      - 

        - Shawn Green     Tech Support  - 

        - American McGee  Tech Support  - 

        - Robert Prince   Music         - 


Note:  Apogee has NOTHING to do with DOOM. 


[4-1]: How can I contact id Software? 


        id Software can be contacted via the Internet.  If you would like to 

ask any questions about DOOM (that are not answered in here), send E-mail to 

"".  Id Software can also be reached at their 800 number. 

The number is (800)-ID-GAMES.  This number is for ordering games ONLY.  This 

number is not for technical support or inquiries. 



[5]: What are the differences between the different releases of DOOM? 



(5-1): What is the shareware release? 


        The shareware version of DOOM only includes one of the three 

missions of DOOM.  Each mission contains eight levels and a secret 

level.  The shareware version contains network support and modem 

support.  The shareware version does NOT include the Plasma Rifle and 

the BFG9000 weapons. On December 10th, 1993, v1.0 was released.  On 

December 16th, 1993, v1.1 was released.  On February 17th, 1994, id 

released v1.2 of DOOM.  This version fixed many bugs and added new 

features, including modem support. Unfortunately, this revision added 

many new bugs.  On June 28th, 1994, v1.4 was released.  This version was 

only an "Internet Beta version," as was used to find bugs before the 

pending released of v1.5 of DOOM.  Then, on July 8th, 1994, v1.5 was 

released as another "Internet Beta version."  Both version 1.4 and 1.5 

were released without registered version patches. In early August, v1.6 

was released as yet another "Internet Beta version." FINALLY! In early 

September of 1994, v1.666 made its debut!  The new features of v1.4, 

v1.5, and v1.666 are all outlined in Chapter [5-3]. 


[5-2]: What is the mail-order release? 


        The mail-order release of DOOM includes all three missions of DOOM. 

Each mission contains eight levels and a secret level.  This version includes 

all weapons.  All mail-order releases ordered July of 1994 are older 

versions.  It is recommended that you upgrade to v1.666 if you wish modem 

support, Nightmare mode, DeathMatch v2.0, and various other bug fixes. 


[5-3]: What makes the six versions different? 


        Seven different versions of DOOM have been released: v1.0 (which 

has the v0.99 operating system), v1.1, v1.2, v1.4, v1.5, v1.6, and 

v1.666.  Version 1.0 was the initial December 10th, 1993 release. 

Version 1.1 was the first upgrade of DOOM, released on December 16th, 

1993.  Although this version fixed many bugs and compatibility problems, 

it introduced many new ones. Version 1.2, released on February 17th, 

added modem play, Nightmare mode, and better use of networks, but again 

introduced many new bugs.  v1.4 of DOOM was a Beta version released 

exclusively on the Internet, and was only used for finding bugs before 

the pending v1.5 release.  v1.5 followed, which again was released as an 

Internet Beta version to find bugs for the pending v1.6.  v1.6 was then 

released as another Beta, and finally v1.666 was released in early 

September which fixed some modem play problems and other miscellaneous 

sound code and control bugs. 

        Note: id reports that v1.8 of DOOM will be released in the near  

future, and DOOM II has a version v1.7 and v1.7a. 


        v1.4/v1.5/v1.666 new features: 


        - New 14.4k and 28.8k modem support 

        - Better serial support 

        - New and improved SETUP.EXE with the following features: 

                + Phone number list 

                + Modem string database 

                + Level warp key (F1) 

                + Up to eight digital channels instead of four 

        - New DeathMatch v2.0 rules (-ALTDEATH parameter): 

                + All objects respawn after 30 seconds 

                + Suicide subtracts a frag from your score 

                + Negative frags are now possible 

        - You can type "+" and "-" in chat mode 

        - The "Official" DOOM FAQ is now included 

        - Microscopic map bugs fixed and some elements changed in certain 

          maps for network play 

        - Recording multiplayer demos is now possible 

        - Recorded demos do NOT end when you die or when the level ends. 

          You must press "Q" or quit from DOOM to halt recording.  The 

          default demo buffer is 128K, but it can be increased by using 

          the "-MAXDEMO <#k>" command-line parameter.  "-MAXDEMO 1024" 

          would allocate one megabyte for a demo recording buffer! 

        - When playing back Multiplayer demos, you can use F12 and TAB 

          keys to access the other player's views and watch everyone 

          on the automap. 

        - You can NOT use external files with the shareware version any 

          longer.  You must register first. 

        - You can now reload maps using the IDCLEV<e#><m#> cheat if you are 

          map editing on a LAN 

        - Supports RESPONSE files for up to 100 command-line arguments.  A 

          response file is a text file that contains all the command-line 

          arguments you which to pass to DOOM.  An example would be: 


            ---- start of file ---- (don't type this line) 





            ---- end of file ---- (don't type this line) 

          If you name this file RESPONSE.TXT, when you invoke DOOM, you 

          would type "DOOM @RESPONSE.TXT" and add any additional 

          command-line parameters afterwards. 

        - Sound Blaster AWE32 sound support 

        - Sound does NOT work under Windows or OS/2 yet.  A new version is 

          being test and will be released when it is stable. 

        - new FAST parameter allows optional fast enemies 

        - new TURBO parameter allows the marine to move more quickly 

          (this is considered cheating and is only meant for DeathMatch play) 

        - the DEVPARM parameter is no longer needed to record demos 


        NOTE: Saved games from versions before v1.666 do not work with v1.666. 


        Bug fixes since v1.5: 


        - Miscellaneous sound code, serial code, and control fixes 

        - IDKFA and shotgun no longer crashes the game 


        Bug fixes since v1.4: 


        - SERSETUP has been rewritten-- AGAIN! 

        - Help screen now mentions F11:Gamma Correction. 

        - Sprite graphics can now be used in PWADs. 

        - A bug that caused some monsters to teleport outside of the levels 

          has been corrected. 

        - Mysterious DeathMatch bug (since v1.0) that caused random objects 

          to reappear but not be gettable has been corrected. 

        - Increased 64K of savegame buffer space for PWAD developers. 

        - SERSETUP COM port setting > 38400 has been fixed. 

        - Response file bug fixed. 

        - SETUP lets you type ENTER for a control key. 

        - New GUS instrumnet mapping file for 1mb GUS cards only. 


        Bug fixes since v1.2: 


        - Now more than two people can play over a network without crashes. 

        - No more PS/2 mouse bug (player loses control of character, 

          character spins, game locks, etc.) 

        - Saving a game under a open door, restoring it, then pressing 

          space no longer causes the game to crash. 

        - Sound code rewritten. 

        - Serial game difficulty selection fixed in SETUP.EXE. 

        - map bug fixes including two-sided linedef bug and faulty 

          SKY1 ceiling texture mapping 

        - gun projectiles (rockets, plasma, rockets) will no longer trigger 



        It is recommended that you upgrade to v1.666 if you have not already 

done so.

CHAPTER [7]: What is needed to run DOOM? 



*7-1*: What is REQUIRED to run DOOM? 


        DOOM requires a 386sx IBM compatible computer running MS-DOS v3.3 or 

higher, VGA (320x200x256) graphics, and 4mb of RAM.  The shareware version of 

DOOM needs about 4.8mb of hard drive space.  The mail-order version needs 

about 12mb of hard drive space. 

        DOOM II requires a 486 with at least 17mb of hard drive space.   

I have seen it RUN on a 386, but it runs too slow. 

        DOOM ports for the Atari Jaguar, Linux/X, Irix/X, Windows, OS/2 PM, 

MacOS, SEGA 32X (Mars), QNX, FreeBSD, Solaris, and UNIX are also planned. 


*7-2*: What sound cards does DOOM support? 


        DOOM supports general MIDI, Adlib, Sound Blaster, Sound Blaster Pro, 

Sound Blaster 16, Roland Sound Canvas, Gravis UltraSound, WaveBlaster, Pro 

Audio Spectrum 16, Sound Blaster AWE-32, and compatibles. 


[7-3]: What game controllers does DOOM support? 


        DOOM supports keyboard, mouse, joystick, and trackball (functioning 

as a mouse). 

        DOOM also supports the Gravis Gamepad and Logitech Cyberman. 



CHAPTER [8]: How can I use multiple players in DOOM? 



        DOOM supports 2-4 players in a multi-player mode. DOOM is 

playable over networks, modems and by serial link. 


Note: For playing the registered DOOM over networks or by modem, EACH user 

      MUST BUY his/her own individual copy of the game. 


[8-1]: How does the multi-player gameplay work? 


        In DOOM, players are able to see each other, and watch each other 

jerk in pain as they are hit during the game.  Players are able to watch 

others get hurt, die, and move throughout the labyrinth.  DOOM allows 

players to play together, working as a team.  In this cooperative mode, 

players can see each other on an "automap" and switch to each other's view. 

DOOM also allows players to play against each other, in DeathMatch mode. 


[8-1-1]: How does pausing, saving, and loading work? 


        In DOOM, some things change when playing with more than one player. 

        When you activate the Options menu or submenus, the game KEEPS 

RUNNING so that other players can continue with the action.  So, it is best 

to find a safe place before adjusting screen size, sound, etc. 

        A player may pause the game by pressing the PAUSE key, but any other 

player can unpause the game by pressing the PAUSE key again.  Make sure it is 

okay with your buddies before taking a breather. 

        When you do a save game during network/modem play, it saves on every 

player's system in the save game slot you select, writing over whatever was 

there.  Before saving the game, players should agree on a safe slot to save 

it in. 

        You cannot load a saved game while playing a multi-player game. To 

load a game, everyone must quit from the current game and restart the game 

from a saved game.  To start a game from a saved game, you can either 

select it from the SETUP program or identify it as a command line parameter. 


[8-1-2]: What are the different uniform colors for? 


        In network/modem games, each player's uniform is a different color. 

The color of your character is the color behind your face on the status bar. 

The colors are BROWN, INDIGO (black), GREEN, and RED. 

        These are used to identify between players during game play, and 

to chat with others using Chat Mode. 


[8-1-3]: How does a player see what others are doing? 


        If you're playing in cooperative mode, press F12 to toggle through 

the other players' viewpoint(s).  You still retain your own status bar at 

the bottom, and if your view reddens from pain it is YOU, not your partner, 

who has been hit. 


[8-1-4]: How do players communicate using Chat Mode? 


        In a multi-player game you can communicate with other players in the 

Chat Mode.  To enter into Chat Mode and broadcast a message to all the other 

players, press the letter "T".  A cursor will appear where your messaging is 

normally placed.  To broadcast to a specific player, instead of pressing 

"T", you'll need to press the first letter of the player's color: (B)rown, 

(I)ndigo, (G)reen, and (R)ed.  For example, to send a message to the brown 

character, you would press the letter "B". 

        In DOOM v1.2, a macro capability was added.  After defining 

ten macros in SETUP.EXE, pressing the player color, and then 

"ALT-<macro number>" will send a macro. 


[8-1-5]: How do the weapons work? 


        When a player runs over a weapon, he picks it up, but the weapon 

remains in the game for other players to take.  Shotguns dropped by former 

human sergeants are removed from the game after being picked up or smashed. 

        In DeathMatch v2.0 (use the ALTDEATH parameter), weapons are 

removed from the playing field from thirty seconds and then reappear when 

playing DeathMatch mode. 


[8-1-6]: What happens when a player dies? 


        If you die and restart in the level, previously taken items and 

destroyed monsters don't reappear unless you are playing in DeathMatch 

v2.0.  Even though you've died, other players have survived. 


[8-1-7]: Can players exchange supplies? 


        Players cannot exchange supplies. 


[8-1-8]: Miscellaneous 


        In Cooperative mode, each player begins in the same area.  In 

DeathMatch mode the players begin in completely different areas--if you want 

to see your buddy you'll need to hunt him down.  Plus, each time you die, 

you'll start in one of several random locations. 

        Unlike in single-player or Cooperative mode gameplay, in DeathMatch 

mode the players start at each location with the keys necessary for opening 

any locked door in that area. 

        In DeathMatch mode the ARMS section on the status bar is replaced 

with "FRAG."  The FRAG section displays the number of times you've killed 

your opponents. 

        In Cooperative mode the Automap works the same way it does in 

single-player mode.  Each player is represented by a different color arrow. 

In DeathMatch mode you won't receive the pleasure of seeing your opponents on 

the map.  Just like the monsters, your friends could be just around the 

corner, and you won't know it until you face them. 


[8-2]: What exactly is "DeathMatch" mode? 


        DOOM has a "DeathMatch" mode where every player is out for 

himself.  At the beginning, the level is infested with enemies and power-ups. 

In this mode, players can't see the other players in the Automap, nor switch 

to their view.  Players are not able to view other's health in the mode, 

because of the disadvantage this can cause. 


[8-3]: How does DOOM work with networks? 


        DOOM supports the IPX (Novell Netware) protocol in the initial 

shareware version.  Using this network support, DOOM can be played in a 

workplace type environment. 

        To start network mode: 

        (1) Launch DOOM from the SETUP program, by going to the directory in 

which you installed DOOM, typing SETUP, and pressing the ENTER key. Unlike 

playing DOOM in single player mode, DOOM in multi-player mode must be run 

either from the SETUP program or by using the command line parameters. 

        (2) The SETUP program allows you to configure the information that 

is necessary for the multi-player game. The SETUP is simple to use. 

        (3) Start the game! 


(8-3-1): What are the network command line parameters for DOOM? 


-LOADGAME allows you to start DOOM from a specified save game.  Instead of 

using the saved game name, simply enter the number (0-5) that corresponds to 

the slot you saved the game to on the SAVE GAME screen. 

-loadgame <# of the game> 


-DEATHMATCH starts DOOM as a DeathMatch game.  If you don't enter DEATHMATCH 

as a command line parameter, DOOM will default to Cooperative mode. 



-SKILL sets the skill level (1-5) you wish to play. 

-skill <# of skill level> 


-EPISODE sets the episode (1-3) you wish to play.  The default episode is 

Episode One, Knee-Deep in the Dead. 

-episode <# of the episode> 


-CONFIG allows you to use your configuration file from any directory you 


-config <pathname> ex. -config f:\doom\data\myconfig.cfg 


-NOMONSTERS allows you to start playing with NO MONSTERS running around! 

This is great for DeathMatch where, really, the monsters just get in the 




-RESPAWN tells DOOM that, yes, you are a badass, and yes, you want all the 

monsters to respawn 8 seconds after you kill them.  The NIGHTMARE skill 

level already does this.  Note that using -respawn and -nomonsters at the 

same time is a dumb thing to do. 



-ALTDEATH uses DeathMatch v2.0 mode. 



-FAST uses fast monsters, as in Nightmare mode 



-MAXDEMO determines the maximum size of a recorded demo 

-maxdemo <size in K> 



-TURBO increases the speed of the marine (this is considered cheating in 

single player mode and is meant for DeathMatch only) 

-turbo <speed increase 1-255> 


[8-3-2]: How does DOOM determine player colors? 


        The player numbers and colors are determined by the ethernet node 

address. The lower the number, the lower number you will be assigned in a 

multi-player game.   The lowest number gets green, and the highest number 

(with four players) gets red.  To change the player numbers in a net game, 

insert the line :"NODE ADDRESS xxxxxxxxxxxx" under the Link Driver section of 

your net.cfg before you load LSL. 


[8-3-3]: How can I use DOOM on Novell Netware Lite? 


        Hwere is information on how to play DOOM on a Novell Netware Lite 

network.  Novell does not approve of or recommend the following drivers. 


HOST/CLIENT (1) Load the LSL.  (LSL.COM) 

HOST/CLIENT (2) Load your card driver.  (example: 3C5X9.COM) 

HOST/CLIENT (3) Load your server.  (SERVER.COM) 

HOST/CLIENT (4) Load your client.  (CLIENT.COM) 

CLIENT      (5) Log into the network. 

CLIENT      (6) Map the hosts to the hard drive.  (refer to NWL Manual) 

HOST        (7) Run DOOM's SETUP.EXE, configure, and press F10. 

CLIENT      (8) Change to mapped DOOM directory, and run SETUP.EXE, 

                using the same options as used on the host. 

            (9) PLAY DOOM! 


Note: It is illegal to use the Registered DOOM on only one server.  You 

      must buy a seperate copy of the game for each player. 


[8-3-4]: How can I use DOOM on other types of networks? 


        It does not matter what type of network you use for DOOM, whether it 

is Lantastic, Windows for Workgroups or other networks.  netDOOM uses the 

cards at such a low level that it does not need the network services.  It 

only needs the ODI/IPX drivers. 

        This being the case, netDOOM works fine with any Ethernet or any 

other cabling system. Naturally, you can not use any normal network services 

at the same time. 


        There are a number of ways of getting IPX working with a given 

ethernet card.  One is to use a dedicated IPX driver for the card, 

another is to run an IPX converter over some other standard such as 

NDIS, ODI, or the packet driver standard.  If one method fails to 

work, try another one!  I have had good reliability with the IPX 

over Packet driver method, though it can sometimes be a challenge 

to get it running...  If you are already using Novell, then the IPX 

over ODI might be simpler to set up, though I have found it less 



        Before I get going, let me plead with everyone NOT TO USE DOOM 1.1 


available, so please use it rather than 1.1 or 1.0.  DOOM 1.0 and 

1.1 really screw up networks. 


Now that I have all my disclaimers out of the way... :) 


        To use this method of installing IPX you need two files, both of 

which are in the file PKTD11.ZIP, which can be had from as/pub/msdos/pktdrvr/  I have seen some 

problems with this version (11) of the drivers, however, so it 

would be wise to test out the packet driver after it is loaded, or 

perhaps to try one which comes direct from the ethernet card 

manufacturer. (i.e. from 


        If you have problems with these drivers, I have put together a 

collection of older versions of IPX and packet drivers which seem 

to work better with DOOM.  This package will be uploaded to as OLDIPX.ZIP.  (see Chapter [14-6]) 


        The first file is specific to your ethernet hardware.  It is the 

packet driver software that converts packet-driver calls to 

commands your ethernet card can understand.  The INSTALL.DOC file 

included with the packet driver collection has details about which 

cards are supported and what sort of command-line parameters are 

needed for each packet driver.  I always load the packet driver 

using interrupt 0x60, a popular convention.  These drivers will not 

work well under Windows without tweaking, so read the INSTALL.DOC 

file for details.  There are also some useful packet utilities 

included.  Again details are in INSTALL.DOC.  (Got the hint yet? :) 




     3Com 503 card on interrupt 5, I/O port 0x300, and the 

     internal transceiver. (twisted pair RJ-45 connector ON 

     THE CARD or coaxial BNC connector-- NOT the 15-pin AUI 

     connector) The shared memory area is automatically 

     determined-- but be sure to exclude the region from your 

     expanded memory manager, if used! 


          3C503.COM 0x60 0x5 0x300 1 


     3Com 509 card: These cards are entirely 

     software-configurable through the config/diagnostics on 

     your EtherDisk that came with the card.  If you have lost 

     the disk, all the needed files are available from 


          3C509.COM 0x60 


     AT&T StarLan cards: Almost like the 503 except the memory 

     location must be specified. 


          AT&T.COM 0x60 0x2 0x360 0xD000 


        Once the packet driver is loaded and reports things correctly 

(i.e. it does not give your ethernet address as 

FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF...) then just run PDIPX.COM to load IPX support. 

The PDIPX.COM program is included with PKTD11.ZIP, but it is 

contained in a .ZIP file INSIDE of PKTD11.ZIP called PDIPX103.ZIP. 

Run the .COM file with no parameters. 


        If you have problems with an "invalid mode" when loading PDIPX, you 

probably are trying to run other network software at the same time 

as the Packet Driver/IPX combination.  Strip down your CONFIG.SYS 

and your AUTOEXEC.BAT files to those shown below.  Do not load any 

additional TSR's!  Once this bare-bones configuration works, you 

can begin adding TSR's.  if your problems persist, try using the 

older versions of the packet driver and IPX-to-PD converter.  (They 

should be on 


        If nothing seems to work, try running the diagnostic program 

PKTWATCH.COM after getting everything set up.  If your screen fills 

with scrolling multicolor hexadecimal numbers then the packet 

driver is working OK.  If it just flashes a cursor at you, then you 

have problems UNLESS you are wired directly to another computer. 

Hook your computer back up to an active network and see if you can 

receive anything then.  If you do not have an active network 

available, start DOOM on the OTHER computer while running PKTWATCH 

on the original computer.  Of course, the other (sending) computer 

needs to have IPX set up as well. 


        The simplest way to get all the drivers you need loaded and to 

exclude other drivers which may interfere is to create a boot disk 

with the correct startup files.  For example: 









          prompt [DOOM Setup] $p$g 

          a:\ 0x60 0x5 0x300 1 

          rem change the above according to your card. 



        The ONLY line that will vary with what card you have is the 

"" line.  I encourage you NOT to load an EMS driver since 

so many cards use shared memory and it is sometimes difficult to 

ensure that the proper area, and only the proper area, is excluded. 

DOOM runs just fine with XMS, and you have the added benefit of 

loading DOS high to make room for things like mouse drivers.  DOOM 

does not NEED XMS to run, though.  Also, I like to change the DOS 

prompt to reflect my configuration whenever I am using a bizarre 



        It might be a good idea to also scan your bootable floppy for 

viruses BEFORE booting the networked computer with it.  (Scan it on 

the NETWORKED computer, not your own...)  There are a number of 

common viruses spread by booting computers from infected disks. 

(Stoned, Form, and Michelangelo to name a few.)  Let's not give 

DOOM a bad name by booting network computers from infected disks! 

(btw, F-prot from as /pub/msdos/virus/ is 

an EXCELLENT antivirus program. <plug>) 


        You must make sure that all of the networked computers using DOOM are 

using the same frame type. 


[8-3-5]: How can I set up a small inexpensive DOOM network? 


        All that is required for network play is a network card for each 

computer, a T-plug for each computer (usually supplied with your network 

card), and some cable.  A server is not necessary.  Here is a good supply of 

inexpensive eight bit network cards for DOOM play. 


Corporate Systems Center                PHONE: (408)-734-DISK 

1294 Hammerwood Avenue                    FAX: (408)-745-1816 

Sunnyvale, CA 94089 


        Brand new 16-bit cards priced at only US$49.00 each.  When calling, 

tell your service person that you would like to run DOOM.  Corporate Systems 

will send you the cards mentioned here. 


[8-4]: How can I play DOOM by serial link? 


         DOOM works in two player mode by modem or null modem.  The 

minimum baud rate to play DOOM is 9600 bps. 

        Shareware versions 1.0 and 1.1 do NOT support play by modem or 

serial link.  It is recommended that you upgrade to v1.666 of DOOM. 

        Using this mode is similar to network mode. 

        To use a serial link connection, run the DOOM setup and choose "Run 

Network/Modem/Serial Game."  Then, choose the type of connection you plan 

to make.  Then, configure the game to your liking, and choose the connect 


        Note that to run null-modem game, you must have a null-modem cable 

plugged into a serial port on both computers and each computer runs 

SETUP.EXE with identical parameters. 

        If you are using a modem, you will most likely need to edit the 

MODEM.CFG file in the DOOM directory.  The first line of the file is an 

initialization string.  Pull out your modem manual, and do the following. 


        (1) Find the code that turns off error correction. 

        (2) Find the code that turns off data compression. 

        (3) Find the code that locks your modem at 9600 baud. 

        (4) Find the code that turns off all hardware and software flow 


        (5) Create an "AT" initialization string with all these codes and 

            put it into the MODEM.CFG. 


        To find an already created initialization string for your modem, look 

in Chapter [18-3] of this FAQ.  If one is not listed for your modem, you will 

have to dig up your modem manual for the correct settings. 

        The second line is a hangup string used when you quit DOOM. 

        If you STILL cannot get the modems to connect, both of you should 

run your favorite terminal programs, and connect with 9600, no error 

correction, no data compression, and NO HARDWARE FLOW CONTROL.  Then just run 

SETUP.EXE with the "Already Connected" option in the configuration box. 


[8-5]: How can I play DOOM over the Internet? 



(8-5-1): How can I play DOOM using IHHD? 


        Enter IHHD -- the Internet Head to Head Daemon designed by Jim 

Knutson.  With this brilliant little piece of code, multiplayer gaming has 

soared to new heights.  With IHHD, you'll be able to play Head to Head 

against other human opponents all over the world, with the only cost to you 

being the regular prices you pay to connect to or use your Internet host. 

Best of all, it's free. 


        First of all, your host needs to be running UNIX as its operating 

system.  If you aren't sure what your host is running for its operating 

system, check the information given at the login prompt or send mail to 

your administrator. 


        Other than that, you should be able to run IHHD with ease.  Your 

first order of business is to get the IHHD software.  It is available via 

anonymous FTP at "" in the "pub/IHHD/src" directory. 


        To get it: 


        (1) FTP to  ("ftp" at UNIX prompt) 

        (2) At the login prompt, enter "anonymous" 

        (3) At the password prompt, enter your E-mail address 

        (4) At the command prompt, type "cd pub/IHHD/src" 

        (5) Type "binary" 

        (6) Type "get dialer1.6.4.shar" 

        (7) Type "bye" 


        If you followed the above steps, you should now have the 

"dialer1.6.4.shar" file in your home directory.  Type "ls" at your host's 

command prompt to verify its existence.  If you don't see it, try the 

above steps again or call for help. 


        Next, if you've successfully retrieved the "dialer1.6.4.shar" file 

from the FTP site, you need to prepare the IHHD to run on your UNIX system. 

For UNIX veterans, the "dialer1.6.4.shar" file is in fact a shar file, and 

contains a makefile for easy compiling on your system.  For the rest of 

us, follow these steps to get the IHHD up and running: 


        (1) Create a directory to put the IHHD software in. 

            Type "mkdir IHHD" at the command prompt. 

        (2) Move the IHHD file to the new directory. 

            Type "mv dialer1.6.4.shar IHHD" 

        (3) Go to the IHHD directory. 

            Type "cd IHHD" 

        (4) Unpack the IHHD files. 

            Type "sh dialer1.6.4.shar" 

        (5) Compile the IHHD software to run on your system. 

            Type "make" 

        (6) You should now see a whole mess of files in the IHHD directory. 

            The important filenames you're looking for should be: 






        (7) If you've got these, you're cool.  Otherwise, try the above 

            steps again, re-retrieve the "dialer1.6.4.shar" file from 

            "" using the instructions above, or call for help. 


If everything checks out, you're ready to rumble! 


Here's how you get connected using IHHD: 


        (1) Set up a time to play with another Internet DOOM player. 

            Ideally, you should use E-mail to make the prior arrangements. 


            Make sure you and your opponent use the same baud rate and line 

            settings for your modems. 


            Make sure data compression, error correction, and hardware 

            flow control on your modem are off.  Look at the modem 

            initialization strings section in this FAQ for more help. 


        (2) When it's time to play, start your favorite terminal program 

            and call up your Internet host using your modem.  Make sure that 

            your baud rate and line settings correspond to your opponent's. 


        (3) Login to your Internet host normally. 


        (4) Contact the other player by sending a short E-mail message 

            indicating that you are on the net and ready to play. 


        (5) Once you both establish that you're there and ready to go, 

            return to your UNIX prompt. 


        (6) Type "cd IHHD" to enter your IHHD directory. 


        (7) You may have to type "terminal download," if you do not have it 

            activated already. 


        (8) Type "dialer opponent'" to start the IHHD connection. 

            For example, if you were playing against, 

            you would type "dialer" to initiate the connection. 


            Another way is to type "tcpdialer opponent'" while your 

            opponent types "tcpdialer -answer".  Or reverse roles, where 

            you type "tcpdialer -answer" while your opponent types "tcpdialer 

  ".  Don't ask me what the difference is; I don't know. 


            So, to recap, there are two methods of IHHD connection. 

            Method 1: dialer.  You each type "dialer other.guy'" 

            Method 2: tcpdialer.  One of you types "tcpdialer other.guy'" 

                      while the other types "tcpdialer -answer". 


        (9) Regardless of which method you use to connect, type short text 

            messages followed by a carriage return until you see your opponent 

            acknowledge you.  Unless you have "local echo" set to ON in your 

            serial settings, you will not see the text you type. 


       (10) If you don't see your opponent after a reasonable amount of time, 

            exit dialer or tcpdialer by pressing "CTRL-C" (i.e. hitting 

            the "CTRL" and "C" key simultaneously.)  Contact your opponent 

            again by E-mail and agree to try the other method of 



       (11) If you're connection looks fine and your opponent has acknowledged 

            you and you have acknowledged him, exit your terminal program 

            and change to your DOOM directory.  Run SETUP.EXE, and select 

            "Run Network/Modem/Serial Game."  On the next menu, choose 

            "Modem."  Finally, configure all of the options to your liking, 

            select "Already Connected," and press F10. 


       (12) If everything goes well, DOOM will start up and bring you to 

            your first game over the Internet!  Congratulations, you are 

            now connected by IHHD.  You can now proceed to play DOOM as if 

            you were connected via a regular phone line. 


        If you are having trouble getting DOOM to work with your modem, you 

may want to download one of the many third-party serial drivers for DOOM. 

(see Chapter [15]) 


        Unfortunately, because of the nature of the Internet, delays and 

warping may occur with your IHHD connection, depending on the quality of the 

connection between your and your opponent's host machines.  These delays 

are often sporadic, and depend largely on what's going on on the Internet 

at that particular times.  Then again, you might just be extremely unlucky 

and have a cruddy Internet connection. 


        To gauge the quality of the connection, try to "ping" your opponent's 

computer from your host.  At the UNIX prompt, type "ping -s opponent'". 

You should get a listing of "ping times", which you may stop at any time by 

pressing "CTRL-C".  Try pinging some other hosts you know to get an idea of 

how much ping times vary, and use this data to guesstimate the quality of the 

connection between your host and your opponent's. 


        Another way to judge the quality of your connection is to simply look 

at the other player.  If he's jumping all over the place, you've got a 

cruddy connection.  If he's relatively smooth and steady, you've got a good 



        If all else fails, burn incense and sacrifice a beautiful young virgin 

princess to the net.gods.  No, wait.  Better yet, send me a virgin.  E-mail 

me for an address. 


*8-5-2*: How can I play DOOM using iDOOM? 



                    The TCP/IP Internet DOOMer's FAQ 

                    by Scott Coleman ( 

                  and Jay Cotton ( 

                            updated 10/16/94 





id Software's DOOM is truly the Killer App of the MS-DOS world. 

DOOM's popularity is so immense, it has been estimated that DOOM 

is installed on more PCs than OS/2 and Windows NT combined, and 

DOOM's creators commute to work in Ferarris. Interest in the game 

has been so great that it has been hacked, reverse-engineered, 

dissected, and enhanced more than any other game in PC history. 

And now, as more and more people become hooked into the Internet, 

DOOM is rapidly becoming the Killer App of the Internet, as well. 


     Internet DOOM play is currently at the "clever hack" stage. 

DOOM, as released by iD, supports only IPX network play and 

serial play between two machines. As a result, the DOOM 

documentation doesn't include any information about DOOMing 

across the Internet. Of course, this also means that DOOMers 

can't call id for help. The result of all this is many curious 

people asking the same question: How do I play DOOM over the 

Internet? Enter this document. In the pages that follow, we will 

attempt to answer the most frequently asked questions about 

Internet DOOM, including what you need, how to set it up, and how 

to find new fragbait - er, I mean, opponents. 


     DOOM across the Internet is made possible by a neat little 

freeware program called iDOOM. iDOOM uses the UDP protocol (part 

of the TCP/IP protocol suite) to send DOOM game information 

between multiple machines on the Internet. It is based on the 

WATTCP TCP/IP kernel written by Eric Engelke of the University of 

Waterloo. By some strange coincidence, the authors of this 

document are also the creators of iDOOM, and we have used the 

program to play Internet DOOM sessions with opponents from as far 

away as Estonia. In writing this FAQ, we hope that sharing some 

of our experience will make it easier for you to get connected in 

your own Internet DOOM sessions. NOTE: Throughout this document, 

we will refer specifically to games of DOOM played over the 

Internet via a DIRECT CONNECTION, i.e. no modems are involved 

anywhere in the link. Note that IHHD, SLIP and PPP connections 

all involve modems at some point. Although other methods of 

connecting two DOOM machines together across the Internet exist, 

this document will focus on direct net connections using the 

iDOOM network driver program. 


 Getting Prepared 


     Q1: I want to play DOOM over the Internet using iDOOM. What 

hardware do I need? 


     To successfully play DOOM across the Internet, you will need 

the following hardware: 


     * A machine capable of playing DOOM (D'OHH!)  


     * A network interface card (NIC). And not just any old NIC, 

     mind you - your NIC must be supported by a packet driver if 

     you wish to use it to play Internet DOOM. Usually this means 

     that your NIC must be an ethernet card, although iDOOM has 

     been successfully played over token ring. This document 

     assumes that your PC is already equipped with a suitable 

     NIC, although it may currently be in use for some other 

     non-TCP/IP function (such as a node on a Novell network). 


     * A direct connection to the Internet. If there is a modem 

     somewhere in the link between your PC and your opponent's 

     PC, this FAQ is not for you. Although it is possible to play 

     Internet DOOM over a modem link (either by dialing up to a 

     UNIX machine and using IHHD or via SLIP/PPP), such 

     connection methods are beyond the scope of this document.   


     Q2: OK, I've got all the hardware. What software do I need?  


     In addition to the hardware requirements, some software is 

also required to round out your the package. Before you can play, 

you'll need to pick up the following: 


     * DOOM 1.2 or higher (1.7 is STRONGLY recommended, since 

     this version seems to have solved some problems related to 

     network games). DOOM versions 1.1 and below are incapable of 

     using iDOOM. 


     * A packet driver written specifically for your ethernet 

     card. The Packet Driver is what lets iDOOM (and therefore 

     DOOM) "talk" to your NIC. 


     * iDOOM.EXE, the Internet driver for DOOM.   


     * The WATTCP Applications. These are not absolutely 

     necessary, but can definitely be useful for debugging and 

     testing your setup.  


     Q3: Hold on - I don't have some of this software! Where can 

I get it? 


     * To obtain iDOOM: Log on to via anonymous 

     ftp. Change to directory /pub/doom. Download the file 

     IDOOM11.ZIP. Version 1.1 is the latest version of iDOOM as 

     of this writing.  


     * Many ethernet cards come with the appropriate packet 

     drivers on a utilities diskette packaged with the card. If 

     your card does not come with a packet driver, there is an 

     excellent collection of freely available packet drivers 

     called the Crynwr (nee Clarkson) Packet Driver collection. 

     You can obtain it via anonymous ftp from 

     Change to the /pub/msdos/pktdrvr subdirectory and download 

     PKTD11.ZIP and PKTD11C.ZIP. The files PKTD11A.ZIP and 

     PKTD11B.ZIP contain source code and example programs for the 

     packet drivers - you won't need these in order to play 



     * To obtain the WATTCP applications, ftp to, change to the /pub/msdos/wattcp/ 

     subdirectory, and download file APPS.ZIP. 


     Q4: OK, I've got everything, now what do I do to set it up?  


     Setting your computer up for TCP/IP access is very 

straightforward. As an illustration, I'll be taking you through 

the steps necessary to set up a PC with an SMC ethernet card and 

the IP address You'll of course need to substitute 

your own specific information in place of the examples given 

here. All set? OK, let's get started. 


     Step 0: START WITH A CLEAN BOOT!!!!! Set up your CONFIG.SYS 

and AUTOEXEC.BAT files to load as few drivers as possible. This 

includes such things as memory managers (HIMEM, EMM386, QEMM, 

etc.) and network drivers (e.g. LSL, IPXODI). DOOM doesn't need 

the former, and the latter will probably conflict with the packet 

driver. We recommend that you prepare a boot floppy with a 

CONFIG.SYS containing only a FILES=20 line, and an AUTOEXEC.BAT 

containing only the line "prompt=$p$g". 


     Step 1: Set up the packet driver. Determine your ethernet 

card's IRQ setting, it's base I/O port setting, and it's memory 

address setting (if any). You should be able to determine this by 

looking at the card itself and consulting the user manual. You'll 

need some if not all of this information, depending upon which 

packet driver you use and/or type of hardware you have (for 

example, some IBM computers with the MicroChannel bus can 

determine the settings on the card automatically without you 

having to supply them on the packet driver command line). Unzip 

the appropriate driver from Crynwr Packet Driver collection 

archive. In our example case, the packet driver is called 

SMC_WD.COM. By looking at the jumpers on the card and consulting 

the manual, I determined that the card has been set to IRQ 7, 

Base I/O port address 300h, and the base memory address is at 

segment d800h. For this example, I have chosen to use interrupt 

60h for the packet driver. Packet drivers typically operate on an 

interrupt in the range of 60h to 80h inclusive; since nothing 

else in my sample system happens to be using the first available 

interrupt (INT 60h), I chose that. Thus, to load my packet 

driver, I use the command line 



     SMC_WD 0x60 0x7 0x300 0xd800 


where 0x60 is the packet driver interrupt, 0x7 is the IRQ setting 

on the card, 0x300 is the I/O port base address, and 0xd800 is 

the memory base address (NOTE: all numbers are in C-style HEX 

notation). Don't worry if you don't understand what all this 

stuff means - as long as you use the correct numbers, your packet 

driver should work. NOTE: If your PC is currently part of a 

Novell network (e.g. Netware, Netware Lite, Personal Netware) the 

parameters you need can be found in a file called NET.CFG, 

usually located in your \NOVELL, \NWLITE or \NWCLIENT 

subdirectories (along with all the other drivers needed by 



     At the very minimum, the packet driver should give a sign on 

message and report the ethernet address of your NIC when you load 

it. Chances are that if your NIC has been functioning properly 

for other tasks (e.g. as a node on a Novell network) then you'll 

have no problems here. If not, or if there are any error or 

warning messages, something is wrong. One possibility is that one 

of the settings on your NIC is in conflict with those of another 

expansion card in your system. No two cards can have the same 

IRQ, I/O port, or memory address settings, nor can the memory 

areas of two cards overlap. Whatever the cause, you'll need to 

find and correct the problem before continuing. 


     Step 2: Set up your WATTCP.CFG file. Your WATTCP.CFG file 

contains important parameters used by the WATTCP TCP/IP kernel. 

These values MUST be entered correctly if you wish to make a 

connection with another DOOM PC. In preparation for this, you'll 

need several bits of information. Contact the network 

administrator for your site and find out the IP address for your 

machine, the IP address for your gateway or router, the IP 

address of at least one Domain Name Server local to your site, 

and your netmask value. The three IP addresses will each consist 

of four groups of digits separated by periods. In our example, 

the machine's IP address is, the gateway is, the netmask is, and the nameserver 

address is NOTE: it is important to use the 

numeric IP addresses, not the actual host names. NOTE: If you 

have other Internet programs currently installed on your machine, 

such as a Gopher client or the Trumpet newsreader, you can 

probably find the information you need in the configuration files 

used for those programs. If the application is based on the 

Waterloo TCP package, it will have it's own WATTCP.CFG, in which 

case you can simply copy it over to your DOOM directory. When you 

have collected all this information, unzip the iDOOM distribution 

archive (e.g. IDOOM11.ZIP) into your DOOM (or DOOM2) directory. 

Use your favorite ASCII text editor to edit the file called 

WATTCP.CFG. Edit or add the following lines in WATTCP.CFG: 







     On our example machine, the WATTCP.CFG file looks like this:  







     Save the changed file and exit back to DOS. 


     If you know your machine's IP address, but you can't 

determine the other values, you can often get away with some 

educated guesswork. For instance, the gateway for a subnet 

usually has an IP address ending in .1, as is the case with our 

example. Thus, if your IP address is xxx.yyy.zzz.www, try setting 

your gateway's IP address to xxx.yyy.zzz.1. As for the subnet 

mask, a common value for this parameter is In some 

cases, the gateway value can be something like xxx.yyy.1.1 with a 

corresponding netmask value of - if one doesn't work, 

it can't hurt to try the other. Finally, if you don't know your 

nameserver's IP address, you can probably get by without it for 

the purposes of DOOM playing. Since you'll be specifying IP 

addresses for all of your opponents' machines, a nameserver 

lookup won't be necessary to resolve their addresses.  


     Step 3: Test your TCP/IP setup. Load your packet driver with 

the appropriate interrupt, IRQ, I/O and memory addresses. Next, 

unzip the TCPINFO and PING programs from the WATTCP apps archive 

into your DOOM directory. At the DOS prompt, type: 




and press the <Enter> key. If your WATTCP.CFG values are set up 

correctly, and if your packet driver and net connection are 

functional, you'll see a couple of screens of information about 

your system, including your ethernet address and the parameters 

you specified in the WATTCP.CFG file.  


     If everything looks OK, the next step is to use the PING 

program to attempt to establish contact with your subnet gateway. 

At the DOS prompt, type 


     PING <yourgateway's.numeric.ip.address> 


and press the <Enter> key. After a brief delay, you should see a 

message telling you that the host is responding, as well as the 

round trip time for PING's test packets. If you see the "Timeout" 

error message, then something is wrong with your setup; if your 

PC is unable to reach your gateway, it will be unable to reach 

the rest of the Internet as well, since all network packets which 

are sent to nodes outside of your local area network must pass 

through your gateway. For our sample system, we would type: 




If your gateway PING was successful, try PINGing your Domain Name 

Server (at the IP address you specified in WATTCP.CFG) as well as 

some well-known site on the internet (e.g. infant2, which is at 

IP address These will test your machine's 

ability to connect with other machines outside of your subnet as 

well as those outside of your site. All of these PINGs should 

result in a "host responding" message with a response time. If 

any of these attempts fails, recheck your entries in WATTCP.CFG 

and/or get some help from your network administrator. Examples 

for our test system: 









Put Me in, Coach - I'm Ready to Play!  

     First, go find up to three of your most patient frag 

buddies. Since this is your first attempt at Internet DOOM, it's 

best to try and find someone on your local network who's willing 

to put in a little frag time with you. Connections on your local 

net will be faster and less problematic, whereas if you attempt a 

long distance connection your first time out, you'll have a hard 

time discerning problems caused by distance from problems caused 

by an incorrect configuration. 


     Decide amongst yourselves which machine will be the "server" 

(the remaining machines in the game will all be "clients"). The 

server machine (and there can only be ONE server per game) acts 

as the coordinator for that session. The player operating the 

server is in some sense "the boss" - she can decide when to start 

the game, which parameters (e.g. -altdeath, -nomonsters, -warp, - 

skill, etc.) will be used, whether to kick a player out, and so 



     The server starts iDOOM as follows: 


iDOOM -server [other game parameters] 


     Once the server has started iDOOM running, the clients (all 

remaining players) can then connect to the server. Each client 

invokes iDOOM using the command line: 


iDOOM -client <server_address> 


     As an example, consider several computers which are part of 

a local area network in a computer lab. In this lab there are 

identical machines sitting side by side, with sequential IP 

addresses, i.e.,, and 

After stepping through the basic configuration process outlined 

above on all test machines, my frag buddies and I are ready to 

begin. First, we all agree to play our favorite DEATHMATCH level, 

DOOM I episode 1 map 5. We also agree to play in -altdeath mode, 

with -skill 5 and -nomonsters. On my machine, which we decided 

will be the server, I type: 


iDOOM -server -warp 1 5 -altdeath -skill 5 -nomonsters 


     The iDOOM screen comes up, and a message is displayed 

informing me that iDOOM is entering server mode. This screen is 

divided into several sections: the credits, the output window, 

the status bar, and the input line. At the top of the screen is 

the name of the program, its version number, and the copyright 

notice. The large area beginning with the second screen line and 

continuing to the 22nd screen line is the output window. Here is 

where iDOOM will display all status messages as well as the chat 

text entered by the other players. Below the output window is the 

status bar, where the current game settings are displayed. Below 

the status bar is the input line where all the text I type on my 

keyboard will appear. Finally, the bottom line of the screen 

lists significant contributors to iDOOM. 


     Once my iDOOM server is up and running, all the other 

players can connect to it. The other guys type: 


iDOOM -client 


     Each client's screen layout is identical to that of my 

server. iDOOM displays a message confirming that it is entering 

client mode and connecting to the server. As each client's 

connection is established, the arrival of each player is 

announced by the server.  


     During this phase of the game setup, all players who have 

connected thus far can type messages to each other using iDOOM's 

built-in chat facility. To send a message to the other players in 

the game, I simply type my message on the keyboard. My keystrokes 

appear in the input line at the bottom of the screen, and when I 

press <ENTER>, the text will be echoed to the screens of all 

players (along with an indication of who sent the message). The 

identical procedure can be used to send messages from each of the 

client machines. The server itself will also send messages. 

Messages from the server will begin with three asterisks ("***").  


     When a client connects to the iDOOM server, the client 

receives a message containing the game parameters which will be 

used during that session. These game settings will be displayed 

on the status bar. The settings are abbreviated to ensure that 

they will all fit within the available space. These game settings 

may be changed interactively at the server console. 


     My friend sees that I have selected E1M5 as the default 

episode and map for our game. He reminds me that we've been 

playing that one a lot lately, and suggests we change to E2M2 

since we haven't played that one in a while. I agree, and issue 

the commands /episode 2 and /map 2 to change the level. Our 

status lines are immediately updated to reflect these changes. 


     Once I have determined (via the chat facility) that everyone 

is ready to begin the game, I press the F10 key. The iDOOM server 

signals the clients that the game is beginning, the chat facility 

is shut down, and iDOOM sets up the connections which will be 

used for the actual game. Once these network links are 

established between all the machines, the message "Prepare to 

meet your DOOM!" is displayed, followed by the usual DOOM startup 

information. Shortly thereafter, the screen melts away and there 

we are, in E1M5, pistols at the ready!  


     Give your buddies a good thrashing - you've earned it! Now, 

after you've gotten DOOM working on your own subnet, you're ready 

for the final step. Find a partner who is also capable of playing 

Internet DOOM. Watch the posts in, or tune into 

the #doom, #tcpdoom or #iDOOM channels on irc. You and he will 

negotiate game parameters, such as which map to play, which skill 

level, and so on. You'll also decide on who will be the server 

and who will be the clients (experienced DEATHMATCHers will often 

try very hard to avoid being the server, since that player's 

uniform is colored day-glo green and is easier to spot in a 

DEATHMATCH). Now simply add the parameters you've agreed on to 

the iDOOM server command line you used before. A typical           

command line will look something like 


          iDOOM -server -skill 5 -nomonsters -deathmatch  


Oh Oh - It's Not Working! 


          OK, so you've done everything, just like I've shown 

you, but you're still having problems. The following are some 

suggestions to try in case of trouble. 


     Q: When I try to connect to the iDOOM server it returns to 

DOS saying "Server is not responding" or "Remote reset 



     A: This means that the player on the server machine hasn't 

yet  started the iDOOM server. The server must be started before 

the clients try to connect to it. Try again in a few seconds. 



     Q: I keep seeing an "ICMP: port unreachable" message on my 



     A: This message is generated by the other machine when the 

port being requested by the sender is unavailable on the           

destination machine. I've seen this happen in some cases when I 

started iDOOM before the other player did. Once the other iDOOM 

was running, the ICMP: messages went away, and the game linked up 

normally. If you see this message, you might also want to try 

using a different port (see the iDOOM documentation on the -port 

command line parameter).  


     Q: The music starts up fine, but all I see is a BSOD (Black 

Screen of Death). 

     Q: My machine displays "sending network start info" or 

"listening for network start info" and then locks up.  


     A: This problem can have several causes. Perhaps the server 

specified a DOOM II game, but one of the players didn't have DOOM 

II. Perhaps one of the other players' machines is slower than the 

others, or has a fragmented disk and takes a longer time to load 

DOOM at startup. Or perhaps some packets were lost - iDOOM uses 

UDP (user Datagram Protocol) packets to exchange game information 

between all machines in the game. UDP packets are not guaranteed 

to reach their destination, and there is no mechanism for the 

sender to even be informed that what it sent never made to the 

destination machine. iDOOM is designed to compensate for these 

lost packets to the extent possible, and occasionally this 

detection and correction takes a few extra seconds. You should 

always wait for at least 30 - 45 seconds for the other DOOM 

engines to sync up before you abort the setup.  


                        Frag Servers/Frag Trackers 


     Frag Servers are a recent development. They facilitate iDOOM 

connections between multiple players quickly and easily and with 

a minimum of command line typing. Current versions of the Frag 

Servers are very similar to the server built into iDOOM. NOTE: An 

iDOOM client can NOT connect to a Frag Server. Frag Servers have 

their own client program which then loads iDOOM as the network 



     As of this writing, the latest version of the frag 

client/server package is TCPSRV12.ZIP, available from one of the 

infant2 mirrors in the /pub/doom/multi_doom/net directory. A 

couple of the more popular fragservers can be found at and Both of these 

support 2, 3 and 4 player games on ports 1666, 1667, and 1668 



     Future versions of the Frag Servers (which will be known as 

Frag Trackers) will serve as online meeting places where DOOM 

players can log on, see a list of games which are awaiting 

players, and either join an existing game or register a new game. 

Waiting players will be able to send chat messages to each other, 

negotiate and set game parameters, check connection quality, etc. 

Although this exciting capability does not exist in the current 

Frag Servers, it will be available sometime in the near future, 

and will revolutionize the way Internet DOOM is played. 


[8-6]: How can I setup DOOM to be played on a multi-player BBS? 


     Applied Personal Computing, Inc. has recently developed a platform that 

allows almost any multiline BBS to host 2-4 player network DOOM games. 


     The APCi MultiPlayer Game Server allows gamers to create a simulated 

IPX network just by dialing the host BBS at high speed.  APCi MultiPlayer 

Game Client software makes use of the APCi MultiPlayer Game Server very 

intuitive for even the newest user of online services.  Best of all, 

all APCi MultiPlayer Game Client software is FREEWARE and includes any 

and all information desired about the supported game. 


     For more information regarding the APCi MultiPlayer Game Server, or to 

witness the APCi MPGS in action, call the APCi BBS at (618) 632-7664.  You 

may also contact APCi at 1-800-535-APCi.  More information can also be 

requested from Kevin Sawyer ( 


(8-7): Where can I find multi-player partners? 


        A good place to find people to play with is on Usenet is the 

"" newsgroup or on IRC on the #DOOM channel. 






CHAPTER [9]: How can I cheat in DOOM? 



*9-1*: What are the DOOM cheat codes? 


        Here is a list of the cheat codes from DOOM.  During play, just type 

the codes in with the keyboard.  You need not hit ENTER after the code. 

After entering, a message should be displayed at the top of the screen 

telling which cheat mode was activated. 


  idbehold        Displays menu (followed by S, V, I, R, A, or L for choice) 

                        S=Strength (Berserk) 


                        I=Partial invisibility 

                        A=Full Automap (computer map) 

                        R=Anti-radiation suit 

                        L=Light amplification visors 

  idchoppers      Gives you the chain saw (long story behind the message) 

  idclev          Warp (followed by episode number and level number) 

# idclip          No clipping (you can walk through walls) 

  iddqd           Degreelessness mode (God mode) 

  iddt            Toggles Automap between normal, full, and full with objects 

                  (enter when in Automap mode) 

+ idfa            Gives full ammo, 200% armor, and all weapons but no keys 

  idkfa           Very Happy Ammo (full ammo, 200% armor, all weapons & keys) 

# idmus           Changes the music to a certain mission (followed by  

                  episode and level number) 

  idmypos         Displays your bearing and coordinates in hex 

@ idspispopd      No clipping (you can walk through walls) 


#: Found only in DOOM II 

@: Only found in in DOOM I 

+: Only found in DOOM v1.4bt and up 


*9-2*: What command line parameters exist? 


        To use most of these parameters, start DOOM by typing: 

"doom -devparm <parameter> <more parameters>".  If the "-devparm" parameter 

is not needed, the parameter will be marked with a plus (+).  Most of these 

parameters can be mixed and matched to create different effects.  For 

instance, typing "doom -devparm -wart 1 8 -record demo01 -respawn" would 

record a demo on episode one, level eight, with monster respawn.  Lastly, 

typing F1 during development mode will allow a 256 color screen capture in 

PCX format. 


@<filename>                    Used to read in a command line parm file 

-altdeath                      Activates DeathMatch v2.0 (v1.4 and above)

-devparm                       Puts you in developers mode 

-episode <episode>           + Starts on episode (1-3) 

-GUS                           Uses the original GUS instrument mapping 

-GUS1                          Uses the new GUS instrument mapping (default) 

-fast                      +++ Nightmare mode without respawn 

-file <name w/ .WAD>         + Allows usage of an external PWAD file 

-left                       ++ Sets up a network terminal for the "left view" 

-loadgame <game number>      + Starts from a saved game (0-5)

-record <name w/o .LMP>      + Makes a demo recording until you finish or die 

-recordfrom <0-5> <demo name>+ Records a demo from a saved game 

-regdev                        Internal development, texture mapping 

-respawn                     + Causes enemies to respawn in non-Nightmare 

-right                      ++ Sets up a network terminal for "right view" 

-shdev                         Internal development, texture mapping

-warp <episode> <level>        Warps to episode (1-3) level (1-9) 

-wart <episode> <level>        Loads a PWAD named ExMy.wad 


+: Does not require the "-DEVPARM" parameter. 


++: If you have a network, try setting up a network game with three players. 

    The three terminals should have the parameters: 

                "doom -devparm -nodes 3 -left" 

                "doom -devparm -nodes 3" 

                "doom -devparm -nodes 3 -right" 

    Then, set up the left and right terminal monitors next to the middle 

    monitor, in a virtual-reality type configuration.  When you turn your 

    head, you see the screen turned 90 degrees!  This ONLY works with 

    versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6 of DOOM. 


+++: Must be used in conjunction with the "-WARP" parameter 


#: For the "-playdemo" and "-timedemo" options, if you give an LMP file name 

   of "demo#" (i.e. "demo3"), then that internal demo will be played if the 

   external LMP file is not found.  For example, to play the internal 1.6 

   shareware demo #2 (multiplayer demo), type "doom -playdemo demo2". 

   Additionally, when using "-timedemo," the game will give you two  

   numbers after you quit to DOS, GAMETICS and REALTICS.  To determine 

   the DOOM frame rate use the formula (GAMETICS/REALTICS) * 35. 


Note: DO NOT name your LMP demos ExMx.LMP, or they will *NOT* work. 


        If anyone has any idea what the "unknown" or question marked 

parameters do, send me some E-mail! 


[9-2-1]: What do the dots that appear in development mode mean? 


        Direct from id, the final formula for calculating the frame 

rate that the dots represent has been determined.  The formula to convert 

dots to frames per second is: 




                        <NUMBER OF DOTS> + 1 



CHAPTER [10]: Can someone tell me how to...? 



        This chapter is full of spoilers for people who are "stuck" in the 

game.  Enjoy! 


[10-1]: Where are the DOOM secret levels? 



[10-1-1]: Knee-Deep in the Dead 


        You must be on level three to access the secret level in DOOM. 

First, there is a room with an elevator with armor on it in the northwest 

corner of the map.  Press the red button in this room. This opens a corridor 

in the room where you can see a glowing sphere.  The room it leads to has 

some lighted alcoves.  Walk up the stairs.  You should be able to hear a 

mechanical sound.  This is the sound of two alcoves being lowered.  The map 

looks similar to this drawing.  (I love the beauty of ASCII art) 


                        Alcove 1 /\ /\ 

                                 \/    \ 

                                /   /\   \ 

                              /     /  \   \ 

                            /   /\/      \   \ 

                            \   \        /   / 

                            /\   \    /    / 

                            \/ \   \/      \ 

                        Alcove 2 \     /\    \ 

                                   \/     \    \ 

                                            \    \ 

                                              \ x 



        Walking into this room normally, the alcoves rise before you can see 

them.  But, if you run up the stairs to one of the alcoves fast enough, 

you can get in it and rise to a secret door.  Alcove 2 leads to the 

blue glowing sphere.  Alcove 1 leads to an island surrounded by ooze. 

You can get a rocket launcher here.  In alcove 1, follow the ooze down 

the tunnel.  The tunnel leads to a switch that raises the bridge over the 

opening ooze pit.  A secret door is also near the switch, but the bridge 

leads to the secret exit.  REMEMBER TO >BOOK< TO THE ALCOVE! :) 


[10-1-2]: The Shores of Hell 


        When you get to Command Center, walk out the elevator door, and 

turn right.  Walk up the stairs in the far right corner.  At their top of 

the stairs, enter the door to the right.  Walk to the end of the hallway. 

Open the door, and look to the right.  Open that door and turn the switch 

immediately on the right in that room.  That switch raises stairs in the hall 

you just left.  Walk up those stairs, get through the red curtain, and get on 

the transporter.  Kill the lost souls in the room you are transported to 

and open the hidden door there (a lion head marks it).  Again use the 

transporter, and you will find yourself walking towards a marked EXIT-door. 

Enter and turn the switch! 


(10-1-3): Inferno 


        The process of getting to the Inferno secret level is probably one of 

the most creative things in DOOM, and the most difficult to figure out.  The 

way to get there is from level 6, "Mt. Erebus".  You must get inside a blue 

box with no ceiling which is in a large triangular depressed area with 

"water" at its bottom.  Inside it is a skull switch ending the level. Getting 

inside the box counts as one of the secret passage units for the level.  Next 

to the box is a large red building which one can get on top of.  To get on 

top of it, you must use the secret teleporter in the building with the 

berserk pack and stairs in it, with the four Imp cages by the entrance.  For 

specifics, the teleporter leading to the ledge above the blue box is located 

at <0x27ed486,0x2315201>.  Upon entering the building, you will see a secret 

opening to the teleporter on the left.  The teleporter takes you to a ledge 

on the top of the red building.  If you go to the right along the ledge you 

will be looking down at the blue box.  Unfortunately, the distance is too far 

to jump.  The key is to shoot a rocket at the ledge wall, the explosion of 

which will throw you into the box!  The area on the ledge where you want to 

fire the rocket at the wall is located at <0x375bead,0xa900072>.  There is a 

rocket launcher on the level, on a platform out in the open with a chaingun 

and a bunch of monsters.  Finally the exit inside the blue box itself is 

located at <0x37f436d,0xc1ffa3c>.  You will take a lot of damage in the 

process, even with lots of armor and health, however, there are a few 

invulnerability artifacts on the level which will protect you.  One is next 

to the wall where the launcher and chaingun are, and the other is inside a 

central shack that opens when you enter a nearby enclosure to pick up the 

green armor.

*10-2-1-2*: Secrets in Detail 







# Just after the zigzag look right for the oddly colored wall <0xBA389D6, 

  0xf0e054ec>.  Push it for corridor to a open place with a blue armor vest. 

# After you cleaned out the exit room, go back to the zigzag room and look 

  right for the shotgun (the tower with the Imp should be lowered now) 


# For DOOM v1.2, a secret area has been added in the above secret room: 

  look in the SE corner <0xdeff476,0xf0effdc2> for the elevator.  You'll find 

  some armor bonuses up there.  The elevator lowers when you are at the 

  entrance <0xb96c465,0xf4879655> in the north, so you'll have to run fast to 

  get it. 




# The small structure you face when you begin, has a secret door in the SE 

  corner (the lighter wall part) <0x15005a8,0x121e8ad>.  Behind the door is a 

  room with a red switch.  Pushing that switch will open a secret door in the 

  northern corner of the stairs in the east <0x60ada92,0x3affa0b>.  You can get 

  outside and collect a supercharger and a chaingun. 

+ Behind the red door you'll see a stair twisting to the right.  On the top is 

  an indention to your left <0xf9900144,0x3a49ddd>.  If you step on it, it will 

  drop down.  You will find enemies to your right, and you will also see (but 

  not be able to get) the chainsaw. 

# A bit ahead you'll see a lift.  Push the first panel to your left 

  <0xf9d0052a,0x5aa56a6>.  You'll be able to kill those Imps from the ridge. 

# In the southern part of the maze (to get in, pull the switch behind the pillar 

  in the green toxic directly to the right behind the red door <0xfdc004de, 

  0x446230f>), shoot the middle most western wall (the one behind the green 

  armor vest) <0xf79e0d81,0xfe82feac> for access to the chainsaw (push the 

  switch in NW to lower the pillar so you can get it). 

  In the same hidden area is some extra armor hidden behind the eastern wall in 

  the northeastern corner of the stairs <0xf82fdc62,0x151532f>. 

# In the most eastern part of the maze, push the wall between the white stripes 

  <0x1eff099,0xfc88d4d4d3> for a backpack. 




+ The strange grey wall straight ahead beyond the first door you open is a 

  secret drawbridge.  The switch for the drawbridge is in one of the chambers 

  described below. 

# In the room in the NW (the one that opens as soon as you push the red button 

  and that contains the yellow key) are TWO secret passages (the second niche 

  on your left <0xf3c7ca46,0xf7dfc822> and the second niche on your right 

  <0xf5ac3fd1,0xfac4d713>), both will open when you're on the stairs but will 

  close again after a (very) short while.  Go to the stairs and then run like 

  hell as soon as you hear them lower. It'll help when you shoot the drums that 

  might get in the way. 

# In the northern niche (leading to a rocket launcher and a green armor) is a 

  secret room in the SE corner (just follow the green stuff to the right). 

  Run fast for minimum damage.  You'll see a backpack and the switch for the 

  drawbridge at the beginning.  To the east is the exit (a lighter colored 

  wall part <0xf6aff87a,0xfbd990b9>) through another secret chamber 

  containing the chaingun. 

# In the south-eastern niche (the second on the right) is a supercharger (pull 

  the switch on back of the pillar). 

# The drawbridge should be lowered now.  Cross it, but be careful! There are 

  a lot of Imps lurking behind automaticaly opening doors.  My tactic is to 

  select the chain gun, run forward and back up as soon as you hear the doors 

  open.  Then take them out at your leisure.  Note that you can also shoot some 

  of them via the secret `window' in the SE <0xf9480573,0xf8b2d736>. 

+ In the north of the room is a corridor, follow it to find the hidden-level- 


# To the north of the room with the hidden-level-switch is a elevator, push the 

  wall <0xfbe7f1f6,0xfaafee8c> to lower it, so you can get the rocketbox. 

# Behind the blue door in the eastern corner is a secret door (the lighter 

  patch in the SE <0xfd6ffcd8,0xf7a33c3b>).  The chainsaw, a supercharger, a 

  blue armor and a partial invisibility is available. 




You start facing a open space with a cage full of Imps in the middle. The 

following rooms are described relative to that cage. 


+ In the northeast is a pentagram on the floor.  If you touch it, numerous 

  enemies will warp in.  Try walking around it and then running to the 

  corridor.  That way you can pick them off one by one. 

+ In the eastern room is a lift/trapdoor at the middle of the eastern wall 

  <0x75cf281,0x2fa03b> (the highlighted patch on the floor).  To the NE are a 

  green armorvest. 

# Also in the eastern room is a lift/trapdoor in the SW-corner <0x6102f19, 

  0xff10138d> leading to a indoor lake with the chaingun. 

# The same area is accessible via the lift/trapdoor in the NE-corner 

  <0x3d000fe,fcd013ff> of the southern room. 

# In the northern chamber, push the middle eastern wall <0x3efe3b3,0x479d0cd>. 

  You'll get into a chamber with several high pillars.  The pillar at the far 

  side of the room <0x7ad637b,0x423de32> lowers when someone is on the stairs. 

  Just run on it, wait for it to rise, and 'jump' to the other pillars by 

  running fast counter clockwise. 

+ To get to the end of level switch, run down the trench.  To the NW is a 

  isle with the switch and to the south is the lift upstairs. 

+ Although they don't count as secrets in themselves, getting on the 

  five pillars, each with a weapon or bit of ammo on it, in the secret 

  room on the right hand wall of the room with the ooze trench and 

  exit, is one of the more challenging things to do in the game. 

  Basically, the room on the secret level of episode one "Military 

  Base" contains five pillars of increasing height as you go around 

  clockwise, along with a lift which lowers when you are on the entry 

  stairs, allowing access to the first and highest pillar. The key is 

  to go around each pillar in a counter-clockwise direction. Just 

  running and jumping toward a pillar isn't enough, as you will go over 

  it but fall off the far side, and this can only get you to the first 

  and tallest pillar, and the shortest (or maybe the first two on 

  either end if you manage to swipe the item off the top of the second 

  pillar before falling). The key is to shift+forward run at each 

  pillar, take off and jump toward it, and right when you reach it, 

  briefly press the down arrow to move backward. This will stop your 

  running and you will be standing still on the next pillar. If you 

  move back too soon you will hit the pillar and fall to the ground; 

  too late and you run off the far side. It's best to give yourself a 

  running start for each pillar and line yourself up so you will be 

  jumping over the minimum distance possible. Using the automap under a 

  high zoom level can help here. This actually isn't as hard as it may 

  seem to get right. I understand some can do this all in one fell 

  running swoop by turning in mid-routine, but this is a surer way. 




# The light wall to the left in the beginning (before the door) <0x785a47f, 

  0x45005ef> hides a backpack. 

# The south exit from the round chamber (the one with the radiation suits) 

  leads to a trench.  Follow the trench east for the rocket launcher and a 

  supercharger.  To get the supercharger, simply stand on the left side of 

  the lift and press the switch.  If you are just barely on the lift, you 

  can reach the switch while on the lift.  Follow the trench west to get 





# The chamber in the middle (behind the first stairs you encounter from the 

  start) has a secret chamber to the south (behind the drums) <0x15a4aa6, 

  0x1a0025b> with a shotgun. 

# In of the east of this chamber is a toxic lake.  In the SE-corner of the 

  toxic is a secret passage (the strangely colored wall) <0x466e20d,0x12009bc>. 

  There is a rocket launcher and a blue armorvest. 

+ In the NW behind the yellow keycard door is a chamber with two pillars and 

  an isle with a switch in the green stuff.  In the indention in the west 

  <0xf8e024a0,0x34ff9c5> is a secret chamber with the antiradiation suit. The 

  south wall of this chamber hides another room with the chainsaw. The south 

  wall thereof gives away to let you outside and get the supercharger. 

  You can get the blue armor in the NE-corner by stepping on the northern 

  pillar when it's down, waiting until it rises again and then 'jumping' 

  over.  Ammo can be found by repeating the same action on the souther 


# Two platforms with Imps hidden in the walls behind the yellow keycard door 

  act as elevator in DOOM v1.2.  The southern one doesn't lead anywhere. 

  The northern one <0xfc2fd5ee,0x4f92783> has a secret wall to the east which 

  leads to a secret room with a partial invisibility and a shortcut to the 

  darkroom (via the north).  The pentagram is a teleporter back to the 


# In the north eastern chamber (the one with the blue floor and the blinking 

  light) has a secret chamber to the SE <0x52fbab5,0x3d001f3> with a backpack, 

  a chaingun and a computer map. 

# In the northern darkroom is a partially hidden chamber to the SW.  The best 

  way to get there is to follow the wall left.  You'll find the night vision, 

  which is very useful in sniping those baddies in the dark. 

+ In the northern darkroom the top of the /\ in the middle wall is also a 

  secret door, but as far as I can see this isn't really useful (maybe for 

  dashing for the exit?) 




+ At the first 'crossing' you encounter, look in the NW corner.  There is a 

  partially hidden chamber <0xfd4ff0b2,0xfe5ab835> with some ammo, health and 

  a green armor vest.  There are also some Imps there, so to be safe, fire a 

  shot into it to detonate the barrels and kill them. 

# Behind the red door in the southwest is a green lake.  In the NE-corner 

  is an anti-radiation-suit.  In the 'middle' (the tunnel in the SW) is a 

  supercharger.  In the SE-corner is a nightvision, a partial invisibility, 

  a blue armor and the exit from the lake. 

# Just before you are by the blue door there is a secret chamber to the 

  south.  Before you're at the blue door, there is a tower with Imps 

  <0x31dc6cd,0xfdc354b5>.  When you reach the blue door it will lower so you 

  can get in.  You will see an anti-radiation-suit. Push the south wall for a 

  backpack, a rocket launcher, a partial invisibility and a back way into the 

  room with the yellow key. 

# In the same area as where the lowering tower is, is a corridor to the north. 

  As soon as you get the yellow key, it will be accessable.  The twisting path 

  over the toxic waste will lead to a backpack and a door to the outside. There 

  you will see a supercharger on a pillar <0x1125332,0x6c93ef6>. The pillar 

  will lower as soon as someone goes near it. Step on it and as soon as it has 

  risen, press the wall to the west to get inside the complex again. 

+ In the room immediately before the ending room, there is a radiation suit 

  available behind one of the pillars. 

# In the most eastern corridor is a strangely colored wall <0xd2ffa4f, 

  0xf9fc115f>.  Push it to get the computer map. 




# In the southwest is a big pillar <0xfe5cda63,0xf7ff97d9> that will descend 

  when you are on the stairs east of it.  Stand on top of it, wait until is 

  has risen sufficiently and jump on the ledge in the NE <0xffdfe6c0, 

  0xf9237c97> for the computer map or the south lake in the NE corner 

  <0xff1e2866,0xf72ffeb0> for the chaingun and (when you leave via the secret 

  door to the east) a backpack.  Jump in the lake in the north and run fastly 

  to the tunnel in the NW <0xfdf75b77f,0xfa229120>.  In the west of that tunnel 

  is a radiation-suit and in the east behind the door with the light are some 

  goodies and a switch.  Throwing the switch will allow you to get to the 

  chainsaw later on in the room in the extreme SW <0xfacc64c4,0xf5a40aa1>. 

  Leave the tunnel via the north and look behind the pillar <0xfea017a9, 

  0xfacffbc5> in that lake for blue armor.  Follow the acid to the north to the 

  supercharger <0xfdb37a3a,0xffa1e2e2> and leave via the east. 

# After you get the blue key in the northwest, two hidden areas will open to 

  free Imps and former humans.  The secret room in the middle of the map 

  <0x1319742,0xfa50049c> has a false wall to the east which leads to 

  outside so you can get a partial invisibility. 




# The only secret room <0x1cfdaa6,0x17bdce1> is in the east in the corridor 

  leading to the first door and contains a supercharger. 

+ Note that there is a map in the east of your starting point. 






# The SE-corner <0x63aba49,0xfdd82d07> of big room in middle (the one with 

  the windows to the east, the south and the west) turns into a teleporter to 

  the plasma-gun after you pull the switch <0x4e7f923,0xfee0883b> on the outer 

  west side and push the button on the west side of the little wall that rises 

  out of the floor (the east switch opens the passage to the red key). 

# In the SW is a indention <0x31cb145,0xfb50105e> with two skull-switches. 

  Press the eastern skull-switch first for access to a teleporter to a 

  corridor filled with bonuses in the north. 

# Behind the red door <0x186bb69,0xfd97f0a8> is a blue mega armor and the 

  computer map. 




# If you walk along the south border of the storage area (the one with all 

  those boxes), you'll bump into a box <0xff9751f6,0xb101ab0> which will lower 

  if you are north of it, to reveal some shotgun ammo. 

# In the south east quadrant are three circles with parts of the floor going 

  up and down.  The northern one has a secret corridor <0x82ff4df,0x22fd506> 

  in the north leading to the blue door in the north, filled with 


# In the SW area (with three corridors with the blue lights on the ground and 

  ceiling) is a partially hidden corridor <0xff85ce0a,0x6b92713> in the NW 

  corner of the most western corridor. When you try to get the backpack, the 

  wall behind you will close and the wall in front of you will lower, 

  revealing some Imps. The door behind you will open after a while. The 

  SE corner <0x2afe532,0x7011ab87> (the black-colored wall) is the 

  secret door to a small chamber.  The SE corner <0x3682291,0x6ebaa52> 

  of that small chamber (the wall with the small green light) hides a 

  corridor <0x4afeea4,9x667fa8e> back to non-hidden territory (the 

  lightly colored wall).  The most south part of the corridor 

  <0x414d0b4,0x5d0039e> (the black wall part) gives away to a 


# In the south middle quadrant is a room <0x1baafb3,0x1d7344b> with two 

  pillars, one khaki, one with tubes (to get there leave the three 

  corridors with the blue lights via the way you came in.  Turn right 

  and first left. The room on your left [east] is the one you seek). 

  The west (khaki) pillar <0x31dc5c4,0x2901565> has a switch on the north 

  side, with which you can lower the eastern pillar to get the plasma 


# In the south middle quadrant is a corridor with skull crushing 

  doors.  To get by them, run forward as soon as they start to go up. 

  Take them one at a time.  The middle one <0x3f4c349,0xff1006b4> (third 

  one from either side) has a secret passage in the north ridge, leading 

  to the chainsaw.  When you get it lost souls will try to get you from 

  hidden rooms in the south and east. 

+ The room <0x6ec4d6b,0x3a0ad08> with the yellow keycard in the south 

  middle has a bridge hidden under the red blood, following blue lights 

  on the ceiling, just walk forward and back again fast to make them 


# The western room behind the yellow door <0x456db4c,0xdc9ca53> contains 

  the chaingun, just flip the switch! 

# In the eastern room <0x852f5ab,0xdadd4d9> behind the yellow door 

  you'll see three rooms to your right and three auto-rising pillars to 

  the north. You can get the backpack on the middle pillar by running 

  over the pillar when it starts to rise or later on. The switch on the 

  eastern pillar <0x95f38f8, 0x11901ab9> opens the middle door 

  containing the rocket launcher.  Flip the switch on the middle pillar 

  <0x85ba244,0x11900694> for the south chamber (with ammo) and the one 

  on the west pillar <0x75fa7ef,0x11900ad> for the north chamber 

  (containing a rocketbox). It's best to pull all switches after each 

  other.  Note that the pillars lower as soon as you enter one of the 

  rooms, so you can't open any doors after that! (but you can get the 


# To get the last secret go into the room with the blue keycard, 

  <0x9e4f2bb,0x5affb22> and look up at the four corners.  Note that the 

  extreme southeast corner is lit up unlike the other corners. Go and 

  stand in this corner and face along the wall.  The platform with the 

  supercharge on it will lower <0x9e41c9a, 0x5eff45c>.  Run across and 

  get it before it rises again.  It will only go down once, so you only 

  get one chance at it.  This is one of the harder secrets in all of 

  DOOM to find and get to. 



# In the most SW corner of the map is a corridor <0xfba6989a,0xfed0450f> 

  to the room with the blue key containing the plasma gun.  To get the 

  plasma gun, jump in the red blood and run north (right) fast. 

# In the middle south is a room with a five-sided green lake.  The wall 

  <0x2847ab9,0xfe90013e> to the south east (the part with between the 

  light lines) offers a shortcut. 

# The next secret on this level is similar to and next to the one 

  above.  You can get out of the room with the green lake 

  <0x25ff9c6, 0xfe9f8db4> via a one way secret door on the wall in front of 

  the main entry way, which leads back to the room with the imp cage.  The 

  other secret door above refers to a one way door into this room which is on 

  the wall across from where the rising and falling platforms with candles on 

  them are. 

# In the south east is a partially hidden cage with Imps 

  <0x1de36ff,0x10156d>.  You can enter via the NW corner <0x2effa57,0x951b16> 

  to get the backpack. 

# Follow the corridor behind the blue door through the open area and the room 

  with all those pillars and blinking light to the green toxic stuff.  If you 

  go around the corner <0x52fff7d,0x313783c> in the SE, you will find a 

  radiation suit.  In the middle of the eastern wall <0x6729d81,0x42cd91e> of 

  the green stuff is a corridor to a room with the supercharger in the NE 

  corner <0x85000da,0x3eac965>. 



# In the middle of the south wall <0xfd743e02,0xf5510517> of the beginning room 

  (directly opposite to the TL's to the north), hides a room with the shotgun. 

# Take the teleporter to big room.  In the north is a elevator.  Press the 

  head left of it to go up.  You'll see a green armor and a computermap. 

  To get them push the little red pillar <0xadc846c,0xfebfff01> with the skull 

  on it in the NE corner. 

# To the north of the big O formed by green toxic waste is a secret door 

  <0x59bf44d,0xfb6fe831>. It opens if you have walked via the corridor 

  <0x75b231a,0xf6c3a683> in the SE of the big O.  There is a supercharger and 

  radiation suit. (Don't forget the partial invisibility south to the entrance) 

# To the west of the big O with green toxic waste is a corridor with a T to the 

  north <0x213d209,0xf9a64b57>. To the east of that corridor is a secret wall 

  <0x27fad41,0xfab20726> with a partial invisibility and a chaingun. Shoot the 

  wall to get them. 

# In the great round corridor in north, behind the blue door: In the east is a 

  `dent' <0x4ed2810,0xff5f15c1> in the ring. This is a trapdoor with a secret 

  door to the east and leads to a plasma gun and a teleport to the middle of 

  the great round corridor. 

# In the great round corridor in the north: follow NE corridor to a room with 


  - The small door <0x62ffe68,0x3b6bde> in the SW leads to a small green lake. 

    The SW corner has a blue armorvest behind some drums. 

  - In NE corner <0x815a37c,0x2c8c810> behind the lava is a secret door. 

  Warning! the SE branch of the corridor behind it leads to a crushing ceiling. 

  Outrun it and push the green patch <0xa6ffd1d,0x64560a> in the east for the 

  exit. The SW branch lets you go back to the lavaroom. 

# In the room above, just over the edge of the wall, is a small ledge 

  with some medikits <0x6ff9294,0x22b3e1f> on them which normally aren't 

  visible from the room and can be missed when running over the lava to the 

  secret door. 

# In the south middle behind the place where you find the blue keycard, is a 

  small twisty path <0x3550d3b,0xf5c84264> high above the acid.  In the SW 

  part of the toxic <0x35019f4,0xf510358a> is a berserker. 

# After you open the door to the exit, look back and get the supercharger 


+ Note: for those of you still searching for that damn switch so you can get 

  to the exit: go in the lake and then towards the exit.  The switch is on the 

  right wall of the teleporter left of the exitdoor. 




# The room where the first door leads to has two secret rooms in the space 

  between the room and the stairs.  The doors <0xfb80ba93,0x7dbd7cc> 

  <0xf8373cba,0x7e031f5> are facing the south and will open automatically to 

  reveal Imps and ammo. 

+ The ridges <0xfca60096,0x3febfc5> <0xf71000d0,0x3e622b8> of the green lakes 

  of the big room south of the begin both lead back to normal territory. 

# In the SW is a roughly (--) shaped room.  In the room NW of the middle 

  of this (--) is a switch <0xf3efdd28,0x1367f57> which activates a stair so 

  you can walk through the fake fire <0xf29412f7,0x18d236d> in the NW corner. 

  The teleporter there takes you to an area infested with lost souls.  The west 

  wall <0xf4690f4,0x496136d> with the head leads to another room with 

  transporter.  That transporter takes you to the switch <0xfe9fb836,0x92ff44b> 

  for the secret level. 

# In the room east to the room in the south middle with the room to the N,E, 

  and W and a view to the circular stairway in the south, is a secret door 

  <0xfbaff1cb,0xae3ad8> in the NE corner (near the cozy head-fire) hiding the 


# In the center of the circular stairway is a anti-radiation suit guarded by 

  a demon.  The door <0xf94949db,0xfe6d93d0> to it will open as soon as 

  you are at the top of the stairs <0xfa165eed,0xfdd56896>. 

# The south door directly after the circular stairway leads to two corridors. 

  The eastbound corridor is the way to the exit, the westbound leads to C 

  formed green lake in the west.  In the north of that lake is a door 

  <0xf1a21e52,0xfe94f08f> (behind the ammo clip).  Follow it to a baron of hell 

  in a cage.  North of that you will see a long corridor with three doors to 

  the east.  The northern and southern doors lead to a ledge around the lake 

  to the east.  The middle door <0xf27dc571,0x826c8a6> (the wall part with the 

  pentagram over the ugly head) leads to the isle <0xf5420514,0x823f2c1> in 

  the middle of the lake, where you'll find a plasma gun. To activate the 

  bridge to the isle, you have to push the button <0xf2aff9f7,0xfd1cd93e> in 

  the room in the center of the C-formed lake you passed while coming here. 

  BTW: If you fall in the lake, the transporter <0xf42dc0b0,0x7500bcf> in the 

  indention in the SW brings you back to the beginning. 

# In the slime lake mentioned above, not only is there a teleporter, 

  but there is also another niche with a cell pack in it 





There are no secrets in this level. 



+ In the SE where you find the blue keycard, two rooms with demons will open 

  automatically. The SW one has a chainsaw behind the brown wall <0x6362f60, 


+ Three parts of the mazes are secret.  All the secrets are off the area at 

  the north of the level after going down the long narrow passage to the 


# The area to the east with the fake exit counts as a secret. 

# The area to the north with the goodies on the table counts as a secret. 

# The area to the west past the crushing ceiling counts as a secret. 





# In the NW is a corridor with ribbles.  The third indention is a corridor 

  leading to a very dark open patch.  In the NE <0x126cccd,0x772feab> is a 

  switch which opens a room with a chainsaw.  In the SW <0x32fff5,0x3de1cbe> 

  is the plasma gun. 

# In the SW is a room with a radiation shield and small patches of green 

  acid in indentions along the walls.  The SW indention <0x137b2c8,0xff25986d> 

  has a corridor to the south leading to a chamber with a rocket launcher and 

  a teleporter.  The teleporter will get you to a red door, with a switch 

  <0xffe013c6,0xfd1015b7> behind it.  Pushing that switch will open an 

  oute door to a secret room in the beginning-room <0x5d894b7,0x76751d7> 

  (SE corner) with a supercharger.  Because this room is protected by two 

  doors, a second switch must be flipped to open the second door. 

+ To open the inner door, flip the switch that is past the blue keycard 

  door, up the stairs, and to the left in the room with the acid pool 






There are no secrets on this level. 






# The small grey chamber before the exit has a secret room <0xfc900da5, 

  0x7606912> in west containing the rocketlauncher. 




# To get a chaingun, follow the wall to your right (west) to the chaingun 

  behind the wall.  The wall will lower when you walk over the red patch 

  <0x6b010ab,0x75220b7> to its west side. 

+ The second `finger' from the east has some cages with former sergeants.  To 

  get into those cages, walk over the red triangle <0x3fa278b,0x817fa0c>. 

  The floors of the cages lowers and a wall behind you will come down. 

  To lower the triangle column (actually it rises) you want to shoot the 

  back wall of one of the six cages the sergeants were in. Shooting it 

  raises the pillar exposing the red triangle, walking over which 

  lowers the sergeant platforms allowing you to get the stuff in each one. 

# In the large circular room at the end of the middle finger is a 


# The plasma gun is hidden in the western part <0x2072324,0x4ecdc0e> of the 

  pillar you see when you stand with your back to the second `finger' from the 





+ In the starting room, a megaarmor can be obtained on a ledge overlooking 

  the yard in front of where you start.  When you go up the stairs to the 

  right, and then down the elevator to the area which has stairs going down 

  to where the blue key is, there is actually a second elevator in the wall 

  which leads up to the ledge with the armor.  This second elevator 

  <0x48189c,0xfe5f9916> can only be used once, and you must move back 

  slightly after pressing the button or else the elevator will catch half way 

  up under an overhang.  The armor's ledge does damage so grab it quickly. 

+ Directly north of the beginning is a great open place with 4 pillars. 

  Pressing the switch <0xfea95756,0xaff327> in the north will lower the middle 

  pillar <0xfe921ce9,0xfef4c1db>, so you can get the shotgun. 

+ To get to the rooms with the windows to the room in the beginning, go 

  north and take both the east and the west stairs, and then south. 

# A little north of the middle is a round green lake <0x120905e,0x1754b6d> with 

  a lavalike ceiling.  In an indention <0x1c9c5cd,0x1c492ee> in the east is the 


# In the SW is a corridor with two platforms (one in the north and in the 

  south).  There is a small corridor in the south.  When you follow it, you'll 

  come to a T-split.  In the west (right) is an invulnerability, useful for 

  running over the lava in the east. Take the turn left (east).  You should be 

  on the southern platform of the corridor.  In the south of that platform you 

  can see a lava/blood maze <0xfd9760e5,0x1de4aec>.  In that maze you'll find 

  the BFG9000 <0xff1ebaad,0xdeec44> in the SE corner and a supercharger 

  <0xfe3afdf3,0x2101114> in the NW corner.  You can also get to the lava maze 

  by going directly north from the beginning, then taking the west stairs, 

  then following the path north. 

# One of the most northern chambers (the one just before the blue door leading 

  to the exit) has two air shafts flanking a formation you could describe as a 

  coach facing north.   When you stand on the coach <0xff6e17cb,0x532520e> the 

  wall part west of the stairs south will lower allowing you to get the map. 

  The wall part <0xfffcfa97,0x41c62aa> east of the stairs will lower when you 

  push it. 

# The last two secrets are in the area to the east of the level, off 

  the east hall and over the stairs guarded by lost souls.  Just 

  entering the room around beyond it with the lava and Cacodemon counts 

  as one secret.  Getting to the area past that with the berserk pack 

  and armor counts as another. 




+ The first room to the west from the beginning has a secret room <0xfebbbdcd, 

  0xc4c579> in the SE corner containing the shotgun. 

# In the SW (a bit behind the blue door) is a room with a doors to the east 

  (the entrance), to the north (where you find the BFG9000 <0xffdaa1b0, 

  0xfd07e1fa> in some lava), to the west (where a lot of Imps and a baron of 

  hell await you) and to the south.  The south chamber has a secret room 

  <0xff49f58f,0xfae5873e> to the west filled with rockets. 

# In the south middle east of the blue door is a room with a door to the north 

  and a small patch of blue lake on the east side.  Press the wall <0x3ddce70, 

  0xf9d91cc3> a bit more north of that patch of blue for a green armorvest. 

+ In the middle is a room with two pillars with switches on all sides.

# The east wall <0x2d56f0d,0x9b29c1> of the big central room of the cathedral 

  (the one with the four 2x2-teleporters) hides a small niche with a 

  supercharger and a chainsaw.  The yellow key is required to open this 


# Also the four stony structures to all sides of the middle warp-in are hollow. 

  The doors will automatically open each time you warp in to the middle from 

  another place (from outside to inside). 

# In the cathedral are four 2x2-teleport-places.  The northern two are 

  connected to the north by a corridor.  That corridor has a secret passage 

  <0xfd48642a,0x56afd0c> in the NW. 

# The most northern room has three switches and a teleport with crushing 


  The SE-switch opens the secret doors in the corridors to the east and west, 

  enabling you to get the rocket launcher and some rockets. 

  The NE-switch lowers the blue key in the NW-corner. 

  The NW-switch lowers the chaingun in the NE-corner. 

  The teleporter in the SW teleports you to the NE corner of the cathedral. 

# The most eastern room (east of the exit) has a small pit, from where many 

  enemies will warp in.  To the east of that room, behind the skull <0x787fd10, 

  0x2eaf2e4>, is the BFG9000. 

+ For those of you wondering just which damn transporter you have to take to 

  get out the middle of the cathedral: it's the most southwestern of the 

  northwestern patch of transporters. 




+ In the east is a cubus-formed building on a hexagon isle. The east alcove 

  <0xd1027ea,0xfe2234b7> is the way in.  In the NW corner <0xb9d75d8, 

  0xfeb0d1db> is the backpack.  Pushing the skull <0xbd80026,0xfe22bffe> on 

  the west wall lowers the wall in the SE, releasing the enemies trapped there. 

  Pushing the skull <0xc5fdf50,0xfe67fb05> on the north wall lowers the wall 

  in the NE, so you can get the radiation suit there. 

# In the north is a NW-SE oriented structure with two cages with Imps at 

  both sides of the entrance.  That structure has a secret door inside in 

  the middle of the NE wall <0x3a60e7c,0x356d9b4> (at the small light on the 

  floor) and a teleporter in the middle of the SW wall <0x281e808,0x22e23de>. 

  The teleporter will put you on a high structure further north.  From 

  there you can 'jump' west and get the chainsaw.  You can get out via the 

  transporter in the SE side <0x34a6f68,0x9bd1900> of the structure you warped 


# East of the above described NW-SE oriented structure is a small _|_ formed 

  building on a small hill.  The building contains two teleporters.  The 

  eastern warps you on the NE ridge of the hill, where you can get the plasma 

  gun <0x7e352bd,0x1c1c059>. The western transporter also warps you to a ridge 

  (NW) of the hill, but there are only some shotgun shells there. 

+ The small blue building <0x941bec7,0x293e0bb> in the NE contains a radiation 

  suit and cacodemons. 

+ All compact flaming red structures contain enemies and a few soul spheres 

  or a radiation suit.  Sometimes one of the walls goes down, spilling the 


# See Chapter [10-1-3] for information on getting to the secret level. 

  This counts as a secret as well. 

# The fourth and final secret passage area on this level is inside the 

  same building room with the secret teleporter leading to the blue box 

  ledge.  On the opposite wall is another hidden wall opening 

  <0x3aa61a5,0x365963f> which contains a cell pack. 

+ The exit is in the middle west: follow the south wall over the lava, you'll 

  see a tunnel <0xfb186e6b,0x54a49e> going north to the blue door, and further 

  the exit beyond. 



# Beyond the northern blue door is a maze of small lava tunnels.  In the SE 

  corner <0x7a37332,0x5bec063> of this maze is the BFG9000 and a transporter 

  to the SW quadrant of the map.  In the NW is a transporter <0xff7323ef, 

  0x824218c> warping to the SW quadrant, the red key <0xfe3f638e,0x6fd04ca> 

  and a red door. 

+ There are several pillars in the various lava-lakes with red doors, all 

  containing transporters: 

  (0) In the most SW lake is in the north a pillar <0xf9e908db,0xfc8d60ac>. It 

     warps you to a room where you can see the yellow door.  In the same room 

     is also a switch <0xfcaffa88,0x45f8a18> on the east wall, pushing it 

     activates a bridge in room (1). 

  (1) In the middle (big) lake is also a pillar <19c3b9d,362e08> with a 

     transporter. It warps you to the room west of the above room. 

     In this room is also a yellow door, in it is a switch that activates the 

     bridge to the pillar in the middle of a lake (. 

  - In the most northern lake are two pillars (east/west). The western pillar 

    <ffa72354,6c46d07> has a transporter to the SW ridge looking out over the 

    middle pillar..... The switch <f9d003cc,569d8a4> opens a door??? 

    The eastern pillar <2d380df,57aafc9> leads to the ridge east, with the 

    yellow key... 

  - SE: 31ff6e7,faea6d2e> NE of tower, with plasma gun. 

  - In the NW lake is in the north a pillar <0xfe1aff7a,0x4093707> containing a 

    transporter. It warps you to the yellow door. 


E3M8: DIS 


+ Not a real secret room, but in case you are wondering: the room in the middle 

  contains a plasma gun and a blue armorvest. 




+ This level is very similar to E3M1, but is much more difficult. 

# Just like in Hell Keep, there is a rocket launcher just in the west of the 

  small grey chamber <0xfd20a96c,0x76057af> in the NW.  This rocket 

  launcher is not available on Ultra-Violence mode and above. 

+ Note that many of the hidden rooms full of enemies (the rooms that open when 

  you go over the transporter-lookalike in the NW) contain weapons and other 

  goodies.  Most beneficial of those is the BFG9000 in the SW corner of the 

  lake (west behind the entrance).

Level 29: The Living End 



Level 30: Icon of Sin 

  The only secret here is how to complete the level.  At the south end 

  of the final room is a switch which raises the platform in the lava 

  to the north (with the box of rockets).  Hit the switch and wait for 

  the platform to go up.  Then go to the platform, hit space to lower 

  it, and get on.  Just before it gets to the top, shoot a rocket into 

  the exposed brain of the demon.  Then jump down and lower the 

  platform again.  This takes about three tries.

*10-2-2-2*: Secrets in Detail 



All the official secret areas in the game are numbered and listed below, 

along with the sector number, IDMYPOS coordinates, and decimal coordinates. 

"Official" secrets are those which are counted towards the "Secrets" total 

on the end level screen.  Some non-secret areas which are hard to find 

are also listed, but are not numbered. 


Level 1: Entryway 

 1  41 < 8b00000,13700000> ( 2224,  4976) 

  In the northernmost room, you see two switches; a near one on your 

  right, and a far one on your left.  The one on the right opens a 

  small area to the northeast with some armor and health.  Hit the 

  right switch before the left one, since the left one makes the right 

  one go away.  (Although if you stand in the right place and hit the space 

  bar, you can still open the secret door, even if the switch is gone.) 

 2   8 < 67c0000, bd80000> ( 1660,  3032) 

 3  17 < 9b80000, a0c0000> ( 2488,  2572) 

 4  57 < 9a10000, f800000> ( 2465,  3968) 

  In the center room (just south of the exit), there is a lift to the 

  west.  Go up the lift and hit space on the wall to the west, 

  revealing a few imps and a switch (#2) which opens a door leading 

  outside in the southeast corner of the center room.  Outside (#3) 

  are some imps and a shotgun.  Once you hit the switch at the top of 

  the lift, jump down onto the platform just east of the lift.  This 

  will open a room with a rocket launcher to the north and east (#4). 

 5  28 < b4e0000, ba60000> ( 2894,  2982) 

  A room with two imps and a stimpack, behind a hidden door on the 

  south side of the east wall of the center room. 


Level 2: Underhalls 

 1  20 < a4c0000, 87b0000> ( 2636,  2171) 

  Just southwest of the red keycard (at the top of the steps) lies a room 

  with blue armor.  There is also a teleporter back to the beginning. 


Level 3: The Gantlet 

 1   5 < da00000, ac90000> ( 3488,  2761) 

  In the main room, south of the two sets of stairs and the rocket 

  launcher, is a small outcropping with a ledge.  You can make it over 

  the ledge if you run southeast at the right angle from the raised 

  area west of the stairs.  Try standing at <b8cf79f,e2495ca> at angle 

  dbf00000 (or thereabouts) and running straight forward.  Once you 

  make it, walk through the south wall to a small room (#1), 

  containing a supercharger and partial invisibility.  There is also a 

  teleporter to the tower with the rocket launcher. 


Level 4: The Focus 

 1  15 <fdca0000, 4890000> ( -566,  1161) 

  The hallway south of the starting point leads to a staircase, then 

  curves east to a door.  On the left side of the corridor are some 

  windows into rooms containing armor and lots of sargeants.  Near the 

  east end of the corridor, there is a hidden door on the north wall, 

  just to the right of the window, which lets you into the south 

  windowed room (#1), and from there to the north windowed room. 

 2  14 <fe020000, 34b0000> ( -510,   843) 

  On the way to the blue key is a room with a lava pool in the 

  northwest.  Jump in the pool; there is a secret door to the north, 

  leading to a room (#2) containing a double-barreled shotgun. 

 3  43 <ff9f0000, 6250000> (  -97,  1573) 

  Once you get the red key, walk east off the platform.  There is a 

  teleporter there, which takes you to the area just south of the 

  staircase mentioned above. 


Level 5: The Waste Tunnels 

 1 139 < 6840000, 1c00000> ( 1668,   448) 

  Just behind the supercharger in the north area of the map (not the 

  one at the start) is a small room with a beserker. 

 2   3 < 3510000, 1ad0000> (  849,   429) 

  Starting in the room with the blue key (the one with red doors at 

  the west and east ends), walk north through the window and press 

  space on the north wall.  Then run north until you're in the room 

  with the plasma gun. 

 3  52 < 1800000,fa440000> (  384, -1468) 

  On either side of the exit are doors to a room containing some ammo. 

  Jump down from one of the ledges on the west or east sides of the 



Level 6: The Crusher 

 1  98 < 4200000, 2600000> ( 1056,   608) 

  Of the two southernmost pillars in the room just west of the starting 

  point, the eastern one contains a secret.  Hit space on its north or 

  east wall to lower it, revealing a megasphere. 

 2 124 < 24e0000, 1130000> (  590,   275) 

  The poison river in the room with the blue keycard leads southeast to 

  a room with a teleporter, which takes you to the staircase just east 

  of the plasma rifle. 

 3 146 <ff420000, 7520000> ( -190,  1874) 

  In the northwest corner of the room with the spiral staircase is a 

  little outcropping with a few chaingun sargeants.  You can jump into 

  it from higher up on the staircase.  (Don't try jumping straight 

  west; you need to jump a little bit north, too.  Try running 

  straight ahead from <1698256,70dce25> at angle <6d480000>.)  In the 

  middle of its west wall is a door leading to a secret room with lots 

  of cool stuff, including a megasphere. 


 Also: the blue door north of the starting room leads to a lift.  After 

 lowering the lift, you will see a little room to the south of the 

 lift with some armor. 


Level 7: Dead Simple 

 1   1 <fda00000,ff600000> ( -608,  -160) 

  The platform around the end-level switch in the center.  Kinda hard to 

  avoid, unless you're playing deathmatch, in which case there is another 

  end-level switch (along with a BFG9000) in the northwest corner of the map. 

  There is no way into that room from the outside, so you can't enter it in 

  single player.  There is a deathmatch start in there, however, and you 

  can open the door from the inside. 


Level 8: Tricks and Traps 

 1   6 < f200000, 74c0000> ( 3872,  1868) 

 2 125 < f200000, ae40000> ( 3872,  2788) 

 3  12 <10550000, 9200000> ( 4181,  2336) 

 4   9 <102c0000, a290000> ( 4140,  2601) 

  Through the door east of the starting point is a room with three 

  teleporters; two obvious ones to the left and right, and a third one 

  in the center which you can get to by shooting the lion.  All three 

  take you to a small octagonal room with a pillar in the center.  The 

  left, right, and center teleporters take you to the north, south, 

  and east ends of the room, respectively.  Shoot the north and south 

  sides of the pillar to open up secret doors behind the teleport 

  exits, revealing some ammo (#1), and a chaingun (#2); unfortunately, 

  it also reveals some pain elementals, so you can decide for yourself 

  if it's worth the trouble.  From the east end of the room (which is 

  secret #3), if you jump west over the slime to the center of the 

  room, a door will open up in the northeast corner of the room. 

  Actually, hitting space on the door will have the same effect.  This 

  door (#4) leads to two radiation suits, ammo, partial invisibility, 

  and a teleporter back to the octagonal room. 

 5  57 < 2f40000, 9500000> (  756,  2384) 

  Through the door southwest of the starting point is a cacodemon and a 

  chainsaw.  As you take the chainsaw, a door will open up revealing a 

  little more of the passageway (#5), containing some ammo and green 

  armor, as well as a baron, who will teleport to the east to block 

  your exit. 

 6 100 < bc00000,10320000> ( 3008,  4146) 

 7  98 < ea40000,11400000> ( 3748,  4416) 

  In the room with way too many demons are two switches on the south side. 

  The west one opens a door on the north wall leading to another door. 

  If you have hit the switch in the room with all the cacodemons, then 

  this door will be open, leading to a room (#6) with even more demons 

  (though you won't see them at first; some doors open after you pass 

  by them).  There is a candle on the east side of it, marking a door 

  which you can shoot open to reveal the BFG9000 (#7). 


Level 9: The Pit 

 1 109 <fc600000, 2600000> ( -928,   608) 

 2 118 <fd070000, 3050000> ( -761,   773) 

  West of the starting point is a corridor leading to the supercharger. 

  Once you get it, one of the corridor walls will open up, revealing a 

  doom containing a rocket launcher and two rockets.  You can try to 

  jump for the launcher, or you can just walk off the northeast edge of 

  the platform on the southwest corner of the room; the floor will 

  raise up so you can easily get the launcher (#1).  Once you do, 

  some doors to the north and east will open up, revealing some sargeants. 

  If you try to walk onto the platform with the rockets (#2), some doors 

  will open up behind you revealing a wall of chaingunners, who will 

  probably negate whatever benefit the supercharger gave you.  :-) 

 3  16 < 5c00000, 6db0000> ( 1472,  1755) 

 4  17 < 5ac0000, 6c00000> ( 1452,  1728) 

 5  22 < 5840000, 6ec0000> ( 1412,  1772) 

  On the east side of the map is a room with a hexagonal structure with 

  imps and sargeants firing down at you.  If you walk up to the structure, 

  the ledge that the bad guys are standing on will lower you, allowing 

  you to walk up onto it (#3).  On the north side of the structure is 

  a door leading to interior of the structure (#4), which is crammed 

  with imps and lost souls.  Opposite the door, and a bit to the right, 

  is a hidden door leading to the BFG9000 (#5). 

 6  43 < 2d50000, c950000> (  725,  3221) 

  In the northeast corner of the map is a spiral staircase of sorts, a 

  large, circular series of steps that lower as you walk up to them. 

  If you make it all the way up the staircase (clockwise), you can jump 

  down to an area with ammo, a supercharger, blue armor, beserk, and 

  a teleporter back to your starting point. 


Level 10: Refueling Base 

 1 114 <fda20000, 2480000> ( -606,   584) 

 2 111 <fda00000, 1380000> ( -608,   312) 

 3 112 <ff200000, 2800000> ( -224,   640) 

 4 116 <fc260000, 2800000> ( -986,   640) 

  The round skylit room south of the starting point has four big brown 

  pillars, each of which contains a secret area.  These pillars open 

  when you enter the room from various directions.  When you enter 

  from the south, the center (#1) and south (#2) pillars open doors 

  facing each other; they contain health and various monsters.  The 

  south one contains a radiation suit, which can come in handy, since 

  all these secret areas have acid floors.  When you enter from the 

  west, the east pillar opens, revealing health, ammo, and various 

  monsters, which may include a pain elemental or two (#3).  When you 

  enter from the east, the west pillar opens, revealing the same sort 

  of thing (#4). 

 5   5 < 5c00000, 8c40000> ( 1472,  2244) 

 6  12 < 3c60000, 7000000> (  966,  1792) 

 7  26 < 80a0000, 5c00000> ( 2058,  1472) 

 8 180 <f8b00000,f9600000> (-1872, -1696) 

 9  34 < 57a0000, 5400000> ( 1402,  1344) 

10  49 < 37d0000, 4d50000> (  893,  1237) 

11  80 < 6400000, 3480000> ( 1600,   840) 

  In the northeast corner of the map is a room with a lot of sargeants 

  and former humans.  There are a lot of small niches in this room; 

  several of them have secret doors behind them which you can shoot 

  open.  You can usually identify them by the fact that they have the 

  large white UAC logo on them, rather than the small gray ones. 

  There are five such secret doors; behind them, you can find a 

  supercharger (#5); light amplification and 200% armor (#6); health, 

  armor, demons, a backpack, and a teleporter (#7) (the teleporter, 

  which is behind the door at the end of the hidden hallway, takes you 

  to room in the southwest (#8), with a invulnerability and an ammo 

  box, just west of the room with the cyberdemon); an energy pack 

  (#9); and armor, a beserker, ammo, and various monsters (#10).  Also, 

  the switch in the southeast corner of the room opens a door to a 

  hidden hallway (#11) which leads to the room with all the 


12  74 < 7a50000,fbbd0000> ( 1957, -1091) 

13  71 < 6840000,fc000000> ( 1668, -1024) 

  In the southeast corner of the arachnotron/revenant room is a secret 

  door to a hallway (#12) leading south; it contains light amplification 

  goggles.  The secret door you emerge from is marked with green pillars. 

  Up the steps to your north is another secret door, also marked 

  with green pillars; it contains armor, beserk, and ammo (#13). 

14 101 <  600000,fffb0000> (   96,    -5) 

15  59 <  1c0000,fcc00000> (   28,  -832) 

  In the room with the rocket launcher on the pedestal, northwest of 

  the room with secret door #13, you can run past the rocket launcher and 

  get onto the north ledge with the imps on it (#14).  There is some 

  health and green armor up there.  The ledge on the south side of the 

  room is actually a lift, which you can lower by hitting space. 

  There are two boxes of rockets up there (#15). 

16 120 <f8e00000, 4f00000> (-1824,  1264) 

17 121 <f8e00000, 4e00000> (-1824,  1248) 

18 122 <f8e00000, 4e00000> (-1824,  1248) 

  In the northwest, there is a room with two acid floor areas and 

  some pillars with stuff hidden behind them.  On the southwest wall, 

  there is a section of wall with mismatched texture; when you 

  walk near that section of wall, a door opens in the northwest 

  acid pool.  The door leads to a megasphere, which counts as 

  three secrets (#16, #17, #18). 


  Also note that just southeast of your starting point is a secret 

  door to a room with some goodies, but it's not an official secret. 


Level 11: 'O' of Destruction! 

 1  28 < 6600000, 3240000> ( 1632,   804) 

  On the east side of the map is a small room containing a chaingun 

  with green torches on either side; you get to it via a lift which 

  lowers when you come down a set of stairs.  On the south side of 

  this room is a secret door, which opens onto a hallway (#1) which 

  leads to a ledge where you can get partial invisibility.  Also, note 

  that there is a supercharger west of the set of stairs mentioned 

  above, on the left (south) side of the door.  Just walk through the wall 

  to the right of the green torch. 

 2  75 < 67e0000, 71f0000> ( 1662,  1823) 

  On the east side of the outer part of the circle (north of the 

  walkway leading east, south of the outcropping with the supercharger 

  on it) is a hidden door in the slime.  It opens when you cross the 

  trigger that reveals the arch-vile.  The door leads to some boxes of 

  rockets (#2) and a teleporter which takes you to some energy packs 

  in the center of the circle. 

 3 114 <ff480000, 9fc0000> ( -184,  2556) 

  In the northwest corner of the map is a series of bars which open 

  automatically when you approach.  Just north of the bars is a secret 

  door (#3) leading west to the hell knight and invulnerability. 


Level 12: The Factory 

 1  26 <fd950000, 3000000> ( -619,   768) 

  In the northwest corner of the big main building is a room with 

  jagged walls (#1); it contains a BFG9000 and lots of chaingunners. 

  To open the door leading there, you must hit the switch in the 

  southeast corner of the room with the blue door facing northwest. 

  Note that there is a radiation suit in the southwest corner of 

  that room. 

 2  85 < 3040000, 2c00000> (  772,   704) 

  The room with the blue door facing northeast (with the platforms 

  that lower as you reach them) contains a teleporter to a ledge 

  facing northeast outside the building.  From there, you can jump 

  down to the southwest and get three boxes of ammo (#2).  Hopefully 

  you already killed the mancubus.  This room also contains a switch 

  which helps you get secret #4. 

 3 155 <fef80000,fc730000> ( -264,  -909) 

 4 122 <ffa00000, 1200000> (  -96,   288) 

  In the southwest corner of the map is a small building with some 

  crates.  High on the east wall are a chaingun and some ammo (#3); 

  you can get to them by stepping from crate to crate until you 

  get to the lift (the switch), and then use the lift to get up 

  to ledge they're on.  In the southwest corner of the room is 

  a teleporter which takes you to the square structure in the center 

  of the big main building.  If you hit the switch mentioned in #2 

  already, then the center of this structure will be raised up so 

  that you can just grab the supercharger (#4).  If you haven't, 

  then you'll be surrounded by four imps scratching away at you. 

  Kill them and hit the switch, which will raise the floor up so 

  you can get the supercharger. 


Level 13: Downtown 

 1   3 < 5000000,f68b0000> ( 1280, -2421) 

  There is a building in the southeast with a switch next to a 

  lift.  Hit the switch and take the lift up.  There are two 

  doors; the right door won't open.  Take the left one and jump 

  across the slime pit to the other side (#1); there's a computer 

  map and a chaingun. 

 2  74 <fcb00000,f2de0000> ( -848, -3362) 

 3  11 < 2e00000,f3d00000> (  736, -3120) 

  In the southwest corner of the building in the southwest corner of 

  the map is a switch which opens a door leading outside.  There's 

  a medikit and some ammo out there (#2).  Just to the east of 

  the switch is a stack of crates which you can lower by hitting 

  the space bar, revealing another switch.  After you hit the 

  switch, you can walk around the stack of crates to your north 

  to find a set of stairs leading up to a teleporter.  The teleporter 

  takes you to a ledge just west of the starting point (#3).  From 

  this ledge, you can run north into the building with the 


 4 108 <fd200000,f7680000> ( -736, -2200) 

  The building in the southwest corner of the map has a pit in the 

  northwest corner, which leads to a lift.  The lift takes you up 

  into another building.  Just across from the lift (to the east) 

  is a switch; hitting the switch opens a door revealing some 

  shotgun shells (#4). 

 5 128 <ffb80000,f7780000> (  -72, -2184) 

  The building with the revenants guarding it (the one with the 

  blue door at the entrance) contains a crate with a switch on 

  the north side.  You can hit the switch to lower the northeast 

  platform, so you can get the chainsaw (#5). 

 6 166 < 2400000,  d20000> (  576,   210) 

  The structure with the red keycard on top of it has a hidden door 

  in the middle of the north wall, which can be reached from the 

  ground.  The door opens to reveal some blue armor (#6). 

 7 213 <ff400000,   40000> ( -192,     4) 

  In the northeast corner of the map is a teleporter which takes 

  you to the ledge of a building with some imps.  Jump over to 

  the ledge of the building just to the west.  There's a door 

  there which leads to a teleporter, which takes you to the 

  interior of a building farther north, right between two cacodemons 

  (#7).  There's a lot of ammo in there too.  Hit space on the inner 

  wall to get out. 

 8 223 <ffc20000,fc6f0000> (  -62,  -913) 

  The building just southeast of the crusher with the plasma gun has a 

  door in the south wall with a stairway leading up to a blue door. 

  Once you have the blue key, you can enter out and get some ammo and 

  rockets (#8). 


Level 14: The Inmost Dens 

  No official secrets.  One way to get the supercharger is to go to 

  the building east of the starting building via the bridge.  Enter 

  the building through the south door.  Run out one of the windows 

  facing west into the moat, south of the bridge.  Lower the lift 

  in the southwest corner, then go through, and go east, kill the 

  arachnotron, and get the supercharger. 


Level 15: Industrial Zone 

 1 290 < 11c0000,  600000> (  284,    96) 

  Get the red card key.  Then jump down to the ground, just to the 

  east of the platform the red key is on.  There is a beserk box there. 

  Hit the space bar on the crate just to your east to lower it, and 

  get the stimpack (#1). 

 2 276 <fd880000,ff500000> ( -632,  -176) 

  Take the teleporter in the southeast corner of the red card key building. 

  Walk out onto the ledge, then go to the north end and drop into the 

  opening to the west, falling down to the main floor of the building. 

  Then walk out the west exit.  Go back and take the teleporter in the 

  red card key building again, and walk north and west again; this time, 

  the floor has risen up to the level of the ledge on the north side 

  of the building.  From here you can jump south onto the platform with 

  the ammo and chaingun (#2). 

 3 104 < 4c80000,fc800000> ( 1224,  -896) 

  Go to the top of the building northeast of the diamond-shaped building. 

  Just north of the teleporter is a secret door on the east wall (#3). 

  Go through down onto the acid pool; to the north is a backpack and 

  some rockets. 

 4  53 < b000000,f5800000> ( 2816, -2688) 

  Go to the top of the diamond-shaped building on the north shore of 

  the acid lake; walk to the south ledge of the building.  Jump south 

  down onto the small island with the radiation suit and energy cells. 

  (Try walking instead of running.)  Hit the switch, then jump off and 

  go northeast to the east side of the lake.  Go through the door you 

  find there; through it, you'll find a platform with an 

  invulnerability sphere (#4). 

 5  70 < 8100000,f3c80000> ( 2064, -3128) 

 6  71 < 8100000,f3880000> ( 2064, -3192) 

 7  47 < 7c30000,f5360000> ( 1987, -2762) 

 8  21 < 5440000,f1040000> ( 1348, -3836) 

  In the southeast corner of the map is a building with a spiral 

  staircase.  Go up and around the staircase.  As you turn to go 

  south, a door will open to the east.  Run south across the lift, 

  then east, then run north, jumping across the lower hallway; there 

  you'll find an open door (#5) revealing a megasphere (#6).  Now go 

  up the stairway again.  As you go south over the lift, a door will 

  open up on the north wall, behind you.  Go through the door into an 

  area with energy cells and lost souls (#7).  Go east into a small 

  opening with a switch.  Hitting the switch will cause a teleporter 

  to appear in the hallway to the west.  Enter the teleporter; it will 

  take you to a platform in the southwest corner of the building with 

  a chainsaw (#8). 

 9 147 <  380000,f1e00000> (   56, -3616) 

10 216 <fc970000,f5770000> ( -873, -2697) 

11 195 <fce00000,f0340000> ( -800, -4044) 

  Go the building in the southwest corner of the map.  At the south 

  end, you will find some stairs going east (unless you haven't hit 

  the switch to raise them).  At the top of the stairs is a secret 

  door to the east, revealing a small area (#9) with a teleporter to 

  the top of the square spiral staircase building northwest of the 

  diamond-shaped building.  I was not able to get credit for secret 

  #9, even if I walked into the teleporter; so the most I could get 

  for this level is 90% secrets.  Instead of taking the teleporter, 

  you could go to the top of the building to the ledge looking north. 

  Hit the switch on the west wall, then jump down to the ground and go 

  back through the front door of the building.  Go into the acid river 

  and follow it north to the lift, which takes you up to another ledge 

  where you'll find a plasma gun and ammo (#10).  Now go back to the 

  south end of the building and go south through the acid river 

  tunnel.  If you got secret #4, there will be a secret door leading 

  south in the tunnel (#11) leading to a teleporter to the secret 

  level (level 31). 


Level 16: Suburbs 

 1  41 < 1c00000,fd180000> (  448,  -744) 

 2  33 < 1b80000,fe580000> (  440,  -424) 

  There are two buildings in the center of the map.  You start in the 

  north one; enter the south one.  In the south part of the building 

  is a little platform with some shotgun shells on it.  Hit space to 

  lower the platform, then get on it.  When you get to the top, shoot 

  at the niche in the wall to your east.  A megasphere will be revealed 

  in the southeast corner (#1).  (It's easy not to get credit for this 

  secret, even if you do get the megasphere.  Walk slowly into and out 

  of that corner, making sure you drop into the depression there.) 

  Then turn northwest and shoot at the eyes in the wall.  You may need 

  to do this while the platform is rising for it to work, or you could 

  try using a shotgun.  If you hit it, a door will open just behind the 

  wall to your north, containing some ammo (#2). 

 3  13 < 6c90000,  800000> ( 1737,   128) 

 4   7 < 5310000,fff80000> ( 1329,    -8) 

  On the east side of the map is a building with doors on each wall, 

  but you can only go through the door in the east wall.  Open the 

  east door and enter the building (#3).  Hit space on the northwest 

  platform to lower it, then get on.  When it rises back up, walk 

  south into the acid pool inside the southwest platform, then hit the 

  switch.  The platform will lower, revealing a small room to the 

  northwest.  Inside the room is a BFG9000, some energy packs, and a 

  medikit (#4). 


Level 17: Tenements 

 1  48 <fd400000,f5200000> ( -704, -2784) 

  Go to the center of the map, then go east until you come to two 

  staircases leading north and south.  Lower the lift to your south by 

  jumping down in the slime just to the west of it and hitting the 

  switch.  Just south of the lift is a hidden room with some armor. 

  On the west wall of this room is a lift (#1) leading to a chaingun. 

 2  89 <fa900000,fd380000> (-1392,  -712) 

  In the north part of the map is an M-shaped structure.  Walk north 

  down the middle of the M into the acid lake, then turn around and 

  hit space on the wall.  The middle of the M will be lowered, and you 

  will see a switch to your south.  Run south and hit the switch. 

  (Actually, you don't have to lower the walkway to hit the switch; 

  you just have to stand in the right place and press the space bar.) 

  A door will be revealed to the east; you can jump into it and get 

  some armor (#2) and a BFG9000. 

 3 150 <fb040000,f94c0000> (-1276, -1716) 

  On the way to the exit, just to the southwest, is a lift.  As you go 

  up the lift, you'll notice an opening to the south.  While the lift 

  is moving, run into the opening (#3) and into a hallway leading east 

  to a megasphere. 


 Also, the room with the really annoying stairway north and west 

 of the starting point has four teleporters on the floor.  The 

 northwest and southeast ones go to the north and south ledges 

 where the monsters appear. 


Level 18: The Courtyard 

 1  17 <f7f40000, 3f60000> (-2060,  1014) 

  When you walk around the pillar in the center of the main area, a 

  number of doors will open up, including two against the wall west of 

  the center pillar.  Of these two doors, the north one leads to a 

  BFG9000 and some more monsters (#1).  (The south one has a hall of 

  mirrors effect in the door tracks.) 

 2  36 <fa050000,ff050000> (-1531,  -251) 

  When you walk counterclockwise around the pillar in the center of 

  the main area, a door will open up northeast of the pillar leading 

  to a teleporter, which takes you to the platform southwest of the 

  pillar.  The platform (#2) contains some rockets, health, and blue 

  armor.  The teleporter will not be there until you hit the switch 

  on the northeast corner of the plus-shaped structure just to the 

  south of it (the one containing the cacodemons). 

 3  76 < a300000, 4300000> ( 2608,  1072) 

  In the northwest corner of the map, hidden between the structures on 

  the north and west walls, is a corner with a small bit of grass. 

  Walking into the grass teleports you to the northeast corner of the 

  map, on a ledge containing a medical kit and a computer map.  (Note 

  that the building just to the east of the bit of grass has an 

  unclosed sector inside it; you can see out the east wall.) 

 4  74 < 8b00000,  940000> ( 2224,   148) 

  In the east area of the map is a hallway ending at a blue wall with 

  a skull switch.  Hitting the switch opens a hidden door revealing a 

  chaingun (#4). 


Level 19: The Citadel 

 1  43 <fdc20000,ffe20000> ( -574,   -30) 

 2  97 <fd860000, 1a00000> ( -634,   416) 

 3  95 <fc360000, 1e60000> ( -970,   486) 

 4 100 <fa350000, 5a90000> (-1483,  1449) 

 5  85 <f9270000, 73c0000> (-1753,  1852) 

 6  33 < 6430000, 5300000> ( 1603,  1328) 

 7 126 <fdb70000,fc640000> ( -585,  -924) 

  In the southwest corner of the main building is a room with a switch 

  in the middle which opens doors leading north and south.  Hit the 

  switch and go north.  At the intersection, go west, and north 

  through the door into a room with health, partial invisibility, and 

  lots of imps (#1).  Then go back to the intersection and go north. 

  At one point, you'll meet a hallway leading off to the northwest. 

  Just south of this hallway on the west wall is a secret door.  (It's 

  just north of the place where it LOOKS like there's a secret door.) 

  This door leads through a short hallway (#2) to a lift, which leads 

  to a hall leading northwest (#3) and stops at a window.  Jump out 

  the window to the northwest.  You should be able to reach the steps 

  of the building to the northwest (#4).  The building has two 

  openings leading inside.  Try the south one first; when you finish 

  in there, an area will open up to the northeast with lots of 

  troopers and a computer map (#5).  The north opening leads 

  (eventually) to five teleporters.  The middle one leads to the 

  pillar in the middle of the castle, which contains a rocket 

  launcher.  The other four lead to the four corners of the castle. 

  Take the northeast one; in the northeast corner of the castle (#6), 

  you will find the BFG9000, some demons, and the blue key.  Or, take 

  the southwest one; there you will find a chainsaw and the yellow key 

  (#7).  An easier way to get to the southwest tower is to go to the 

  southwest room of the castle with the doors on the north and south; 

  take the south door, and walk down the corridor until you hear a 

  door open, then run back and walk through the open door to your left. 

 8  38 <ff200000,ffad0000> ( -224,   -83) 

 9  52 < 5400000, 1910000> ( 1344,   401) 

  In the southeast corner of the map is an area at the top of some 

  steps with two things that look like switches to the north.  They're 

  not switches, but there's a hidden door between them.  Go through 

  the door and up the steps, and hit the switch you see there (on the 

  east side of the wall) 3 times.  Then jump down to the north onto 

  the platform you've raised up, and from there jump onto the platform 

  in the northeast corner of the room.  Go through the teleporter, and 

  you'll get a supercharger (#8).  Go south a bit and then north, and 

  you'll be teleported to a platform in the southeast area of the 

  castle.  Jump to the platform to the northwest (this platform 

  appears when you shoot at the imps in the southwest corner; the room 

  that they are in is missing its north wall, BTW) and go through the door, 

  then down the steps to get the red skull key and some rockets (#9). 


Level 20: Gotcha! 

 1  56 < 8360000,ee3e0000> ( 2102, -4546) 

  The structure just south of your starting point consists of a building 

  with a walkway around it to the south entrance.  (The walkway may not 

  be there if you have not tried to get to the structure; just walk south 

  from the starting point to raise the walkway.)  In the southwest part 

  of the "moat" (the poison area between the walkway and the building) is a 

  small opening, containing an energy cell pack and a radiation suit (#1). 

  Once you have the radiation suit, you can safely walk around the moat 

  to the other side, where there is a teleporter leading back to your 

  starting point. 

 2   4 < ece0000,f5ff0000> ( 3790, -2561) 

  At the top of the structure on the east side of the map is a 

  teleporter.  (To get there, jump down into the slime just east of 

  your starting point and walk north through the little door, up the 

  steps (shoot the wall that's in your way), and jump down from the 

  window.  Then hit the switch to lower the lift to the entrance of 

  the structure, and fight your way up to the top.)  The teleporter 

  takes you back to the starting point.  Just to the left of the 

  teleporter is a hidden door which takes you through a small room 

  (#2) with another teleporter, which goes to a tower on the north 

  side of the structure.  In all likelihood, you'll teleport right on 

  top of a pain elemental, killing it before it has a chance to fire 

  any of those damn skulls. 

 3 101 < 5200000,fbf00000> ( 1312, -1040) 

  There are two towers west and east of the circular area to the north 

  of the main building.  There's nothing on the east one, but the west 

  one (#3) has a megasphere on it.  To get there, take the big demon 

  teleporter in the circular area.  Walk down the stairs and kill the 

  bad guys.  (Note that just south of the stairs, down in the slime, 

  is a teleporter leading to the area where the cacodemon was hiding. 

  There's blue armor and some health up there.)  Then jump across to 

  the dark area east of the stairs.  Instead of walking south to the 

  green armor, find the hidden path leading northeast in the dark to 

  the teleporter, which takes you to the megasphere. 

 4 127 < 2600000,ff180000> (  608,  -232) 

 5 132 < 2210000,ff1c0000> (  545,  -228) 

 6 128 < 29e0000,ff1c0000> (  670,  -228) 

  The structure west of the circular area to the north of the main 

  building (not #3--the thing to the northwest of it) has a 

  supercharger (#4) and a BFG9000 in it.  To get there, grab a 

  radiation suit if you have one, and walk northeast through the slime 

  to the building with the teleporter to #3.  Walk around the 

  southeast corner of the building, looking for a staircase; there 

  should be some flaming skulls there to mark the place.  Walk up the 

  stairs to the teleporter, which takes you to the structure to the 

  west.  Hit the switch to raise the platform, and kill all the bad 

  guys.  If you don't see the BFG9000, shoot your pistol out the east 

  window at the big demon teleporter, and a door behind you should 

  open revealing the BFG and some ammo.  Then hit the switch on the 

  south side of the room to reveal the supercharger (#4). 

  Unfortunately, there's a teleporter in the way, which takes you back 

  to the demon teleporter; fortunately, there are two secret doors to 

  the left and right of the teleporter, which you can take to get to 

  the supercharger (through another secret door to its west or east). 

  The left one has an arch-vile in it (#5), so I suggest you take the 

  right one, which contains an energy cell (#6), unless you want 100% 

  kills and secrets; but if you didn't, why would you be reading this? 

 7  59 < 6730000,f1270000> ( 1651, -3801) 

  In the room with a staircase leading to a plasma gun, there is a 

  secret door on the south wall, leading to a small room (#7) with a 

  supercharger on the west end. 


Level 21: Nirvana 

  No official secrets.  To get the megasphere, hit the switch next to 

  the teleporter which takes you to the room it's in, then jump in the 

  teleporter and run and get it.  Note that the room with the 

  arrow-shaped staircase has some weird effects on the ceiling. 


Level 22: The Catacombs 

 1  85 <fd200000,  f50000> ( -736,   245) 

  In the northwest corner of the starting room is a hidden door leading 

  to a room with rockets, a supercharger, armor, and a spectre. 

 2 125 <fd300000,ff000000> ( -720,  -256) 

  In the southwest corner of the starting room is a hidden door which 

  leads through a short hallway (#2) to the room you can see to your 

  south, containing the plasma gun and an army of chaingunners. 

  To open the door, hit space on the green torch. 

 3  14 < 3340000, 3a00000> (  820,   928) 

  A bit northeast of the red skull key is a secret door leading to a 

  small opening (#3) with a teleporter, which takes you to the room south 

  of your starting point which contains a plasma gun, in case you hadn't 

  already gotten it. 


Level 23: Barrels O' Fun 

 1  61 <  600000, a700000> (   96,  2672) 

  Between the two north-south hallways which lead outside is a third 

  hallway containing a megasphere and two boxes of rockets.  It has 

  a little outcropping just north of it which you can jump down onto, 

  and then walk south to get the goodies. 

 2  11 < 81c0000, b780000> ( 2076,  2936) 

  In the northeast part of the map are two hallways with boxes and 

  boxes of rockets, for use against the various spiders.  In the south 

  hallway is a door to the north, leading to a supercharger (#2). 


Level 24: The Chasm 

 1  98 <ff000000,f8540000> ( -256, -1964) 

 2 116 < 1000000,f6870000> (  256, -2425) 

  Your starting point is located in a small opening in the north side 

  of a building.  The main entrance to the building is around the 

  walkway a short distance to the east, but you can't get in, because 

  the entrance is too steep.  To raise the stairs up, first fall into 

  any of the teleporters in the slime on the floor of the southeast 

  corner of the map, north and south of the building you're trying to 

  get into.  You should appear south of a series of tower.  Jump down 

  from tower to tower, working your way east to a small area with a 

  teleporter.  That will take you to another teleporter.  Go straight 

  (east) and hit all the switches in that area.  That should raise the 

  stairs at the main entrance of the building, so get back there by 

  going back to the teleporter, and go through it to the teleporter at 

  the base of the series of towers.  Then run west to the teleporter 

  on the acid floor.  That will take you back up to the south tower, 

  so run northwest to get back to the building near the starting 

  point.  Once you get inside (#1), you'll see three things sticking 

  out of the north wall.  Hit space on the first one you come to; it 

  will lower a lift to your south, which leads to a small area with 

  some ammo (#2). 

 3  62 <f5400000,fec00000> (-2752,  -320) 

  This is the invulnerability in the west part of the map, which is 

  not that hard to find; just follow the annoyingly thin walkway west. 

  You can jump down onto it, but then you'll be stuck there; you'll 

  have to get off that platform and wait for the floor to rise up, 

  then walk to one of the surrounding walls, and hit space until you 

  get back up to the level of the walkway.  At that point, the 

  invulnerability will have worn off.  A better idea is to get a 

  radiation suit and jump down into the moat around it, and then hit 

  space on the surrounding walls until it reaches the level of the 

  platform the sphere is sitting on, then grab it; then the floor will 

  raise up to the level of the surrounding walls, and you can get out. 

  Or you can try jumping down just to the left or right of the 

  invulnerability sphere, enough to get the floor to raise up and take 

  away the poison; then grab the sphere, and hit space a few more 

  times to get back to the walkway. 

 4 123 <fda00000,f1d00000> ( -608, -3632) 

  The south area of the map has a shotgun with a small walkway to its 

  south.  If you get the shotgun, an opening will appear to the south 

  revealing some monsters.  After killing the monsters, you can jump 

  down into the opening to get some ammo and health (#4).  When you 

  jump back, the floor around the shotgun will rise up and become 



Level 25: Bloodfalls 

 There are no official secrets, but there are some hidden areas.  In 

 the north-south hallway with two windows on each side of the hallway, 

 in the north part of the map, there is a secret door between the two 

 windows on the east side, leading to a rocket launcher and some ammo. 

 In the south part of the map, in the room with some steps leading 

 south between two windows, there is a hidden room in the northeast 

 with a BFG9000; it's on the automap. 


Level 26: The Abandoned Mines 

 1  29 <  e00000,ffb80000> (  224,   -72) 

  When you start the level, there's a secret door right behind you 

  (#1) which leads to a big room with lots of bad guys and items. 

  The teleporter on the acid floor in the west area of the room 

  takes you to a platform where you can jump and get the plasma gun. 

 2  34 < 16c0000,  200000> (  364,    32) 

  When you start the level, there's a secret door right to the east 

  of you (#2).  Hit the switch to lower the room first, then hit space 

  on the south part of the east wall.  This door leads to a network 

  of tunnels that take you to many of the acid-floored rooms and 

  monster ledges that you see from your starting point. 

 3  98 <f8380000, 3a00000> (-1992,   928) 

 4 121 <fb6c0000, 4e00000> (-1172,  1248) 

  The blue keycard has a secret door behind it (#3) revealing a switch 

  that lowers two lifts, revealing two areas to the north and south of 

  the acid pool to your east, which contain some cacodemons.  The south 

  area contains a trigger line that raises the floor near the east door, 

  and a switch which opens that door.  The north area contains blue 

  armor, and a secret door on the east wall (#4) leading to some 

  health potions and a supercharger. 


Level 27: Monster Condo 

 1  10 <fb5c0000,fea50000> (-1188,  -347) 

  When you start the level, the first thing you should do is go through 

  the door in the northwest corner of the room (across the acid pool) 

  and go west to the lit area with the ammo (#1).  You have 30 seconds 

  after the level begins before this area is closed off. 

 2 177 < 5f60000,fdad0000> ( 1526,  -595) 

 3 171 < 6400000,fbe00000> ( 1600, -1056) 

  East of the acid pool with the rocket launcher in the center 

  is a west-east dividing wall.  On the east wall, north of the 

  dividing wall, is a lit area in the corner.  When you walk into 

  this lit area, a door opens to the east revealing an area (#2) 

  containing partial invisibility, light amplification, energy 

  cells, and lots of monsters.  South of the dividing wall is 

  another lit area along the east wall.  When you walk into it, 

  a door opens to the east revealing an area (#3) containing some 

  ammo, health, shotgun shells, and arachnotrons. 

 4  92 < 12d0000, 2f60000> (  301,   758) 

 5  93 < 1200000, 4e00000> (  288,  1248) 

  In the northeast room with the impaled bodies everywhere, there are 

  two switches to the north.  The east one lowers a lift to the 

  southwest, which leads to a long corridor of health potions (#4) and 

  a teleporter (#5) which takes you up to the ledge in the northeast 

  corner of the room, where there's health, armor, ammo, and a BFG.  I 

  don't think it's possible to get #5, since the teleporter's sector 

  is secret, and you can never enter that sector, because there's the 

  teleport line is in the way.  Also note that you can't get out of 

  the ledge in the northeast corner unless the door to it has opened 

  up already. 

 6  45 <f95d0000, 5000000> (-1699,  1280) 

 7 129 <f7bd0000,fc400000> (-2115,  -960) 

  There are two long north-south skylit rooms with large teleporters 

  in the center and pictures of a demon on the north wall.  Each one 

  has a switch on the east wall, which you can use to open up the west 

  wall in both rooms, revealing some mancubi, a beserk sphere, a 

  supercharger, and a computer map in each room (#6 in the north one, 

  #7 in the south one). 

 8 157 < 4e00000,f7600000> ( 1248, -2208) 

  This is the room with the hell knight, just southwest of the 

  yellow key, which has the switch that lets you out of the room 

  after you get the yellow key. 


Level 28: The Spirit World 

 1  54 < 3e00000,f1a00000> (  992, -3680) 

 2  55 < 5b00000,f1a00000> ( 1456, -3680) 

  In the south part of the map is a room with five columns and a 

  throne.  Walk up to the throne to lower the middle column, and then 

  go stand on it (#1).  (You need to do this in order to complete the 

  level, so I don't see why it's a secret.)  When the column raises up 

  again, you will see two switches to the north and south.  The south 

  one reveals the yellow key.  The north one reveals a passage beyond 

  the yellow key, as well as four hell knights, an arch-vile, and 

  (fortunately) an invulnerability sphere, some rockets, and a 

  teleporter which takes you to the ledge on the east side of the room 

  (#2), where you can get another invulnerability sphere and a 


 3  17 <fdc80000,f3c00000> ( -568, -3136) 

 4   3 <fea80000,f5a00000> ( -344, -2656) 

  In the southwest part of the map is a hallway which leads west and 

  then north.  At the bend in the hallway is a small niche to the 

  south containing an arachnotron, who will come out and attack you. 

  To enter the niche (#3), just walk through the south wall.  There is 

  also another niche farther north containing some chaingunners and 

  troopers, as well as ammo and health (#4).  Just walk through the 

  east wall. 

 5  88 < 4240000,ff440000> ( 1060,  -188) 

 6  92 < 6440000,  840000> ( 1604,   132) 

 7  93 < 6440000, 3dc0000> ( 1604,   988) 

  In the northeast part of the map is a room with five columns.  As 

  soon as you enter, some hidden doors will open up and lots of 

  monsters will come out.  As soon as you kill all the monsters, look 

  on the automap, and you will see three secret doors in the niches 

  where the monsters were.  The southwest niche has a secret door 

  leading east to a supercharger (#5).  The southeast niche has a 

  secret door leading north to four backpacks, a medikit, and a 

  revenant (#6).  The northeast niche has a secret door leading east 

  to a mancubus and a beserker (#7). 


Level 29: The Living End 

  No official secrets. 


  Northwest of your starting point is a path which leads west to a 

  teleporter.  As you approach the teleporter, some windows open to 

  the north exposing some chaingunners, who promptly attack you.  If 

  you walk north off the ledge and then walk west around the structure 

  the chaingunners are in, you'll see a small opening leading to a 

  teleporter.  This takes you to the ledge the chaingunners are on; 

  there's a plasma gun there. 


Level 30: Icon of Sin 

  The only secret here is how to complete the level.  At the south end 

  of the final room is a switch which raises the platform in the lava 

  to the north (with the box of rockets).  Hit the switch and wait for 

  the platform to go up.  Then go to the platform, hit space to lower 

  it, and get on.  Just before it gets to the top, shoot a rocket into 

  the exposed brain of the demon.  Then jump down and lower the 

  platform again.  This takes about three tries. 


Level 31: Wolfenstein 

  No official secrets.  However, the room just before the exit door 

  has a secret door in the southwest corner, which leads to a small 

  niche with a medikit.  The west wall of this niche has another 

  secret door which leads to a second exit door; this goes to the 

  super-secret level (level 32).  Just south and a bit east of the 

  second exit door is a secret door which reveals a supercharger. 


Level 32: Grosse 

  No official secrets.  However, in the middle of the east wall (the 

  middle Swastika) is a hidden door which reveals an invulnerability 

  sphere.  The west wall has a hidden door in the same place, leading 

  to a bunch of medikits, and a plasma gun with lots of energy cells. 

  Also, the two northernmost and two southernmost pillars contain 

  various weapons, and a megasphere; walk up to them and hit the space 



[10-3]: When should I use each weapon? 


FIST:  Never use unless you have Berserk.  This is really cool, but not as 

good as the chain saw. 


CHAIN SAW:  Good for tight corners.  Rips apart the Demons and Spectres. 

This is probably the best weapon for non-shooting enemies.  The chain saw 

also works wonders on Cacodemons.  They turn away when you start to chop 

them, and cannot fire. 


PISTOL:  Average weapon.  Does damage to the Former Humans, but the shotgun is 

preferred.  Only to be used when in dire need of ammo. 


SHOTGUN:  This is probably the best all around weapon.  Use this much of 

the time as it is very powerful.  Its only problem is that its rapid fire 

is not very fast.  Very useful in "mazes" where enemies are very close but 

not in large amounts. 


SUPER SHOTGUN:  Only found in DOOM II, shotgun gurus will love this one.   

Double the power, but uses double the ammo.  Great for taking out those  

hard to kill enemies or many enemies in a group. 


CHAINGUN:  This weapon takes a fair amount of time to kill enemies.  Good 

for a lot of monsters in a row.  Also very useful for Imps and Cacodemons, 

because the chain gun can keep them from firing back. 


ROCKET LAUNCHER:  Good for occasional long shots at many enemies in one 

place.  Be careful, however, this weapon can hurt you as well if the 

rocket bursts at close range.  Very useful in DeathMatch mode. :) 


PLASMA RIFLE:  Rapid fires very quickly.  Hurts some enemies a lot, and 

others not as much.  Tends to block the view, which is very dangerous when 

you have a large amount of enemies coming toward you. 


BFG9000:  The most powerful weapon.  Kills almost ANY enemy in one shot, 

but uses a lot of energy cells and rapid fire is very slow. 


[10-4]: Where can I get each weapon for the first time? 


        Here is a chart that shows on which level in each episode you can 

pick up each weapon.  This chart is for DOOM I. 



                | Weapon          | E1M | E2M | E3M | 


                | Chain saw       |  2  |  2  |  5  |

                | BFG9000         |  -  |  -  |  3  | 


        +: Can also be picked up from the first dead sergeant. 


[10-5]: Where can I find the various powerups in the game?

Note:  This chart pertains to direct hits only.  Missed shots increase the 

       amount of ammunition required to kill any enemy. 

       The last three columns relate to missiles fired by monsters.  Imps and 

       Lost Souls do the same damage as single bullets. 


*: Monster only found in DOOM II. 


+: This regards a player at 100% strength.  Again, missed shots increase the 



(10-9): Which enemies will attack each other? 


        Projectile monster attacks do not hurt other monsters of the same 

species. For example, Imp fireballs do not hurt other Imps, but do hurt 

other monsters.  Baron green plasma does not hurt other barons, Cacodemon 

gasballs don't hurt other Cacodemons, and Cyberdemons are immune to their own 


        Bullet attacks are fair game for all.  Troopers, Sergeants, and 

Spiderdemons all kill their own kind cheerfully. 

        Scratching and biting attacks are hard to misdirect but it does 

happen, and when it does, Demons will happily go after each other, as will 


        Last but not least, Lost Souls who hit each other will duke it out to 

the finish.

[13-29]: VERDA v0.20 




        With VERDA, you can move THINGs around the map and change them 

to other things. You can change LINE triggers, SIDE image selection, 

SECTOR image selection, floor heights, ceiling heights, sector actions 

(raising/lowering, etc.), and properties (acid/blinking lights, etc.)  You 

can graphically see which lines trigger which sectors, and change this. 

You can display the NODE information graphically, but it cannot currently 

be edited.

phenomenal action game, DOOM.  It is designed to let any curious 

individual peruse the contents of the DOOM WAD file.  Anyway, WAD 

Tools will let you do any number of operations on the resources in 

the WAD file. You can view it in hex mode, or if it's a graphic 

resource, you can view it in 320x200x256 VGA mode.  You can also 

export it to a file (an LBM if it's a graphic resource), or replace 

it by importing a file.  And, if you're really brave, you can export 

all the resources in the WAD file to individual files.

James Dicke   or   EXEC-PC: JAMES DICKE 

   - DOOM Fanatic.  As an employee of the Virtual Gaming Center he finds 

     time to talk to many doom-junkies that are not on the internet.  It 

     has been his hobby to collect all WAD's. 


Jim "Chainsaw" Urbas 

   - DOOM Fanatic.  Current projects:  wc - Wad compiler; tool to help 

     developers integrate new graphics into WAD files.  Deathmatch 

     Compilations DM_xx_xx.ZIP; several 9 level episodes containing the 

     best deathmatch maps, optimized for use in a single episode (namely: 

     DMSMALL1 and DMSMALL2).  Also working on a new solo episode with 

     Brant Katkansky, author of NUCLEAR.WAD.  Main area of interest is in 

     adding additional graphics to doom missions. 



     The Virtual Gaming Center (Milwaukee, WI) use several networks of fast 

     computers with 27" screens and special controllers (steering wheels, 

     flight sticks, etc) to play multi-player games IN-PERSON.  The VGC is 

     also host to the Mid-West DOOM Tournaments.  You may contact them at  or  (414) 476-1514.  Also, if you're into Magic:

*14-6*: DEHACKED patches 



        DEHACKED (see Chapter [13-2]) allows modification of the DOOM.EXE 

file.  DEHACKED can be used to create DOOM.EXE patch files, which are used 

to save DOOM.EXE settings to be distributed.  To use a DEHACKED patch, 

the DEHACKED utility is required (see Chapter [13-2]).  Using the DEHACKED 

utility, type this to use a DEHACKED patch file. 


        "DEHACKED <WAD file name/path> -LOAD <patch name>.DEH" 


        For example, to use a DOOM.WAD in the C:\DOOM directory, and patch 

it with the monster morphing patch, you would use this command line: 


        "DEHACKED c:\doom\doom.wad -LOAD monsmorf.deh"

        A DOOM serial driver replacement utilizing a fossil driver.  Allows 

modem-modem connections with modem speeds up to 115K with full error 

correction and hardware flow control, non-standard IRQ setups, voice to 

modem connections (no need to wait for RING in this case - goes straight to 

on-line to get the handshaking going), option NOT to drop DTR after a game 

has ended in order to restart the game without losing the connection, and 

more.  If you are having trouble with your modem and DOOM, this is for you.

*15-3*: DeuTex and DeuSF v2.9 




DeuTex is a freeware program to build, rip-off and rebuild PWADs. 

Allows you to flexibly redefine sprites, floors, ceilings, wall textures,  

sounds, music, levels (obtained from doom editors). DeuSF enables you to 

distribute PWADS where some sprite and floor/ceiling are redefined. 

A must to create customised and original looking PWADs. 

Supports .GIF .BMP .WAV .AU (and .MUS, obtained from MIDI files).

        This program modifies the DOOM.WAD files' player pictures. This 

allows a you to change the way other players are viewed in a  

multi-player game. If you are playing a cooperative game, you can make  

the players white so they stand out and you can avoid hitting them by  

accident. Or, you can make the players dark colors so that a deathmatch 

game can be more difficult.  This program will only work on the  

registered DOOM version 1.2.

*15-8*: DOOM EasyWAD v1.11 




        This program was made for all those DOOMers with loadsa WAD  

files. It produces a nice WAD selection interface, which should put an  

end to losing track of all these files. (At least I get more frustrated  

from finding that particular WAD file and typing all that things on the  

command line than from playing DOOM itself!).

(15-15): The DOOM Honorific Titles 




        When you think your DOOM skills are solid and that no monster in 

hell can be a match for your shotgun, you have two basic ways of getting 

street credit.  One is to win lots of DeathMatches against well-known 

players, and the other is to get one or more "DOOM Honorific Titles". 

The DHT is a rating system that awards top players with standardized and 

universally recognized titles. If you feel proud and/or silly enough, 

you can include the relevant letters after your name in your .sig and 

impress your fellow DOOM players. 


There are four titles to be conquered: 


     DOOM Master (DM):               can complete any level on Ultra-Violence. 


     DOOM Grand Master (DGM):        can complete any level on Nightmare. 


     DOOM Tyson (DT):                can complete any level on Ultra-Violence 

                                     using nothing more than fist and pistol. 


     DOOM Grand Ass Kicker (DGAK):   has the combined skills of a Master, a 

                                     Tyson and a Grand Master. 


The titles are awarded by passing an examination. As with most 

examinations, this will only be a random sampling of your 

capacity. You won't be required to complete all 27 episodes to prove 

that you can do it. 


You will be your own judge for the results. You will receive the text 

of the examination, which tells you what to do to be awarded the title 

you think you deserve; from then on you just have to produce the 

corresponding LMPs and upload them to a specific public place in a 

specific format to be able to call yourself a DM, DT, DGM or DGAK. There 

is no time limit. The LMPs must be produced especially for the 

examination -- you can't just send in your old ones. This is because 

there is an authentication mechanism which prevents people from 

recycling other people's LMPs.

map, number to dial, and whether to disable call waiting.  It can store up to 

9 different default phone numbers for speed dialing.  It also has a built-in 

wad rating system, so you never have to remember which wads were good, and a 

wad counter which records the number of times you have played each wad.  It

   The DOOM* Client/Server System is a front-end to DOOM TCP/IP network  

drivers.  You use the client software to connect to a Frag Server. While  

connected to the server, you can chat with other players and bystanders  

and negotiate game parameters. You tell the server what parameters you  

want, and when all the players are ready, the server will give the  

client the decided game parameters plus the IP adresses of all your  

victims. The client software will disconnect from the server and then  

run a multi-player DOOM game (iDOOM* or linuxxdoom*).
