Talk:E1M9: Military Base (Doom)


Today I replaced the four demos which showed how to get 100% kills, items, and secrets.  Why did I do this, since I created the original demos myself?  I noticed some behavior that I wouldn't necessarily want my little sister to imitate:

  • Not fighting deaf demons/spectres one at at time before the exit room (UV).
  • Going to the canal platform the long way around (all four).
  • Entering the southeast room from the north side, missing a barrel frag (all four).
  • Frontal assault on the rocket launcher room (HMP and UV).
  • Doing the "jumping between pillars" room entirely by trial and error (all four).

Harder than it looks, folks!  :>    Ryan W 19:25, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

In retrospect, there are arguments for the second thing: first, there is an obstacle between you and the platform, which makes it harder to actually step out of the slime; more importantly, if you approach the button from that side, you have to spin almost 180° to shoot at the monsters coming out of the trap.    Ryan W 00:51, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
