Game Hunter's playthrough video on Youtube

This is a full episode module (~25 levels) with new monsters, new items, new special levels, new random levels, etc.

Graphics mode support is still a work in progress both in Inferno and in DoomRL itself (for mods at least), but if you're willing to put up with graphical issues, it should be playable.

Some of the sounds included copyrighted material used without permission.  If that makes you uncomfortable, let me know and I'll make a version without sounds available.

Feedback is very welcome. Praise, criticism, bug-reports, balance suggestions, screenshots, YASDs, YAVPs: bring 'em on!

Have fun!

FAQ:
Q:  Which version should I download?  Raw or wad?

A:  They are about the same size, and they install the same way.  Raw contains the source code.  Wad doesn't work on MacOS.  If one doesn't work for you, try the other.

Q:  DoomRL crashes when I'm done playing your module.  What's going on?

A:  If you are running DoomRL in console mode, a bug in DoomRL itself will cause the game to crash when returning to the main menu from any module.  This is harmless but annoying.  The only known workarounds are to run the game in graphics mode or to set MenuReturn to false in config.lua (which is hardly better).

Shinji_Ikari_9th:
Looks good so far. however it crashed when i exited the mortem.

Like the touch of being able to choose your starting loadout.

shark20061:
If you were playing in console, all modules will crash on returning to the main menu.

That must have been it then because i was playing in console.

Motorheadbanger:
The monsters do not move when they don't see (or hear?) you so: You hit the imp. The imp dies.
