..so this is my first wad on this sub-forum, and its hardly doomy heh,
but anyways..

Razz wSnakes Razz


The screenshot pretty much says it all, but still:

This is meant for 2-4 players, gamemode doesn't affect it much, but maybe by default you should use cooperative.
At start, players go to the setup room, to set the point, fruit, speed, player team, gamemode and level settings, after that the level is loaded, and each player can choose the snake they'll be controlling, from one of the little pits behind the starting platform. eg. By default Red, Blue, Green or Yellow. After dropping into one of these pits, the player is teleported to a place where they can see the map where the snakes move. (like in the screenshot above)

By moving forward in that area, they make the snake of the color of their choice to turn up, backwards to turn down. strafing left makes the snake turn left and strafing right makes the snake turn right. Hitting the use key allows you to leave the snake controlling area.. back to the starting place where you can watch the game, or choose a snake to control again.
(To avoid some glitches: you should not hold two turning keys down at once, actually just pressing one key once to turn is enough, and the snake will still keep moving in the direction, so there's no need to keep the key down.)

Classic Snakes:
By having your snake move over a apple, your snake will gain a point. Each point makes the snake a bit longer, and the first snake to reach the pointlimit wins the game. As you can see on the screenshot, you can keep track of the points on the displays at the left and right side of the screen.

Hitting a wall or another snake with your snake, will make your snake die, and you'll loose 1 point. You wount be able to respawn before your old snake has disappeared. After that, just hit a moving key, and your snake will appear from the starting spot of your color.

Tron Snakes:
In this mode snakes will grow endlessly untill they die, and their tails stay at the starts. The mode is played in rounds, which last untill there's only 1 snake alive. The surviving snake gains 4 points. Dying in this mode doesn't result in any point loss. After each round the snakes are cleared, and a new round starts from a clean map. (There's snakebot support for this mode)

It's possible to play classic snakes and tron snakes as teams, by adjusting the snake colours in the setup room.

There are 7 levels with different type of snake layouts in this wad, all accessible from the setup room.

Note: voting can be used to reset a abandoned game.

Enabling coop-hud ("sitrep true" in console) is recommended, so you can see which player controls which snake.

I made rus kiss my huge snake while he groaned in defeat, possibly the best duel wad ever!! might work better with a little smaller maps so its super compact and hard to maneuver (getting to 40 points does this sort of but you still have a ton of room on some maps!)
