Ex: "doom -devparm -wart 1 1 -skill 4" will start you on the first map of
    episode 1 with the hardest skill level.

Ex: "doom -devparm -wart 1 2 -skill 1 -record test" will put you on episode 1,
    map 2, skill level 1, and start recording what you do to a file named
    "test.lmp".  To finish, you MUST either die or finish the level, then it
    will dump you to DOS.  If you exit any other way, it won't save the file.

Ex: "doom -playdemo test" will play the file test.lmp that you recorded.

** Knee Deep in the Dead **
Once you beat the big badasses and clean out the moon base you're supposed to
win, aren't you?  Aren't you?  Where's your fat reward and ticket home?  What
the hell is this?  It's not supposed to end this way!  It stinks like rotten
meat, but looks like the lost Deimos base.  Looks like you're stuck on The
Shores of Hell. The only way out is through.  To continue the DOOM experience,
buy The Shores of Hell and its amazing sequel, Inferno!

** The Shores of Hell **
You've done it!  The hideous cyber-demon lord that ruled the lost Deimos moon
base has been slain and you are triumphant!  But ... where are you?  You clamber
to the edge of the moon and look down to see the awful truth.  Deimos floats
above Hell itself!  You've never heard of anyone escaping from Hell, but you'll
make the bastards sorry they ever heard of you!  Quickly, you rappel down to the
surface of Hell.  Now, it's on to the final chapter of DOOM! -- Inferno.

** Inferno **
The loathsome spiderdemon that masterminded the invasion of the moon bases and
caused so much death has had its ass kicked for all time.  A hidden doorway
opens and you enter.  You've proven too tough for Hell to contain, and now Hell
at last plays fair -- for you emerge from the door to see the green fields of
Earth!  Home at last.  You wonder what's been happening on Earth while you were
battling evil unleashed. It's good that no Hell-spawn could have come through
that door with you.
