Description       : Deathmatch maps for two- and multiplayer games.

                    - The XeNoS Series files follow certain naming
                    conventions: the files without an 'x' between 'xenos'
                    and a number, as in 'xenos#.wad', will consist of
                    a single level replacing map #. If you see an 'x', 
                    as in 'xenosx#.wad', then the file is a compilation
                    of the first # maps. For example:
                    xenos2.wad - map 2
                    xenosx9.wad - maps 1 through 9.

         NOTE!!!!!  Maps 1 through 5 have all been significantly altered
                    after the feedback from players around the world, so
                    they are NOT LMP-compatible with xenosx4.zip or 
                    xenosx5.zip. Please delete the older files in favor of
                    xenosx9.zip unless you are for some reason prefer
                    the older versions of the maps.

     Playing tips:  Maps 5 through 7 are best for 3- to 4-player games

                    - Map 1: you now have two exits from the chaingun
                    compartment respawn. The window behind you can be

                    - Map 4: you can shut off the BFG, and you can
                    reopen it right back. :)

                    - Map 5: you can turn the lights on and off in the
                    building with grated windows.

                    - Map 6: listen to the sounds! There are distinct 
                    giveaways almost for every possible location of your
                    opponent. Of course, in multiplayer you will be way
                    too busy. :)

                    - Map 7: beware of the invulnerability artifact!

                    - Map 8: you can get the plasma rifle by jumping from
                    the ledge.

                    - Map 9: nothing mysterious there. You get the plasma
                    weapons after teleporting onto the corresponding

                    For 2-player modem games, I highly recommend using
                    blueguy.wad (ftp.cdrom.com), which somewhat
                    reduces the notorious Indigo advantage.

 If you find bugs:  There are no known bugs in the maps, so please let me 
                    know if you find one.

 The game made by:  id Software, the visionary company... 
                    For the last two years my life has
                    never been the same because of them.
                    Guys at id, I hold a grudge... please make a Doom3
                    with the Quake engine! It is SO not like you to be 
                    missing out on such an opportunity.
                    Hire me, I'll help. :)

 Additional Thanx:  To Thomas Zajic, who kept bugging me until I fixed the
                    exit door misaligned texture in map 4... (Thomas, 
                    you're in! :)
                    To all good people who have been giving me feedback
                    and suggestions. Also to all the cool folks who will
                    be kind enough to send me the LMPs of them fighting
                    in my maps!

                    I strongly encourage you to e-mail me with any comments
                    or suggestions for improvements you may have.
                    Getting back to me is the only way of letting me know
                    that somebody likes (or doesn't like) playing my maps,
                    so don't be shy.

                    Happy DOOMing!
