    The ATAW3D Level 69 poem! (warning possible spoilers) - Videos too!

    Post by WolfForever on Mon Sep 16, 2013 2:47 pm

    Well I first posted it in the poll, and while this isn't exactly the place for literature, maybe it has a place for discussion here as well. Let me know what you think! Smile I'm adding spoiler tags just to be extra careful...

    Spoiler:
    It's got Doom, it's got Duke, it's got Commander Keen
    And many other things to be seen
    To reach it you've got a long line
    For it is in slot number sixty nine

    As you listen to an awesome music track
    There is a puzzle that you must crack
    Full of homages to the original maps
    This level is packed with tricks and traps

    Split the design of the map in two
    And you'll feel lots of of deja vu
    If one demands some scoring pleasure
    Then search for items of great treasure

    Be sure to watch how you and the game behave
    Because when you're timed, you cannot save
    Thus constant attention must be your aim
    And don't think about trying to leave the game

    Paced at the rate in which your time will fly
    The track's a remix of a song that ends with guy
    If the music starts repeating its early tune
    You know the timer will run out soon

    Made by an author whose name is Chris
    His talent, when he's not here, is something we miss
    With everything cool on display to hear and see
    It is, quite literally, All This and Wolf3D!

    I like your poem. Heres Wolfenstein 2009 review limericks by a rude, crude man with a British accent:

    Thanks for showing what happens when you run out of time and what happens when you exit the level.

    How do you do the checkpoint restore?

    How do you do the checkpoint restore?
    Checkpoint restore = Press F1 then type the level you want to go to. It must be below the level you're currently on. (You can only warp down - for instance if you are on Level 70, restore to Level 58, and then use restore again, it won't accept any level above 58. Same is true for further iterations as well. So the only way to get back 'up' levels is to play or restore an actual saved game.)

    F1 will actually work on the very first level, but you can't go anywhere with it.

    Spoiler:
    If you have a Dos saved game from a high up level and want to be able to get there on SDL, there is a secret way it can be done. Take your Dos save, put it in your SDL_Saved folder, then rename the save file sdlsavex.wl6, where x is between 0 and 9 [inclusive]. Now try loading the save in SDL. It won't quite load as if it's a 'proper' SDL save, but it should be good enough...Oh, and try doing this for a save that is NOT from ATAW3D as well!

    This rhyming episode reminds me of your poem!

    Yesterday, I saw the episode of How I Met Your Mother that was all rhymes. All of the rhymes reminded me of your level 69 poem: http://www.cbs.com/shows/how_i_met_your_mother/video/FZrt1xFe2T4cGIj4eLtkvh1G_kdIoH8s/how-i-met-your-mother-bedtime-stories/
