Map of MAP01
Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.


From the start of the level, enter the large building in front of you. At the end of the room, there is a round green door. To the left of it is a small room containing a switch to open it.

Once you enter the door, go to the end of the next room. Behind the round room containing computer monitors, there is a door, and another door behind it. In any order, go to the small doors to your left and right and go down the hallways leading to the switches required to open them. Go through the newly opened doors, and go to the end of the room to exit the level.
