    Version 1: Initial Release
    
    =============================================================================
                               Intro and stuff
    =============================================================================
    
                           !!!!!!!IMPORTANT!!!!!!!
      You'll have to forgive the size of the map as it does go outside the normal
    80 characters used in FAQs(it's 156 characters wide), that was something I
    needed to do in order to be able to make the map what it is.
      Please remember that the map is not exact, but I did try to make it as
    close to what is really there as possible.
    
                       !!!!!!!NOT SO IMPORTANT!!!!!!!
      Something I like to do is give everything a name.  Throughout the game I
    gave different weapons/enemies different names.  For some reason this makes
    it easier for me to play through, I don't know if it will for you, but
    you're welcome to try.  Anyways... This is what I named my stuff:
    
    Weapons
    Rocket Launcher:         Big Bertha
    Shotgun:                 Betsy
    Enhanced Shotgun Shells: Slag Shells
    Magnum:                  Lady Killer
    Magnum Bullets:          Slugs
    Eagle 6.0:               Hawkeye
    Assualt Rifle:           Mary
    SigPro:                  Smacker
    Knife:                   Crazy Ivan
    
    Enemies
    Zombies:                 Fred, Harry, Sally, Larry, whatever came to mind
    Zombie Dogs:             Fido, Butch, Scrappy, Skip, etc.
    Nemesis:                 Big Ugly
    
      If you need to get in contact with me to ask a question or comment on the
    guide, please email me at leeroy3825@hotmail.com.  I'm a bit slow when it
    comes to answering email, so please have a bit of patience.  And please be
    aware that it's been a long time since I played, this map is something I
    made quite a few months ago, so I'm almost definately not the greatest
    authority on the game.

                                     Map
    =============================================================================
    
    NOTE: The map will prbably best be viewed in a 1280x1024 resolution since
          that will display all of Downtown or Uptown on one screen without the
          need to scroll left\right.  That is, unless you don't mind looking at
          it and having to scroll the screen.

                                Killing Time
    =============================================================================
    
      I know what you're saying, how can you make it all the way to the other
    side of the game in under 2 minutes?  Simple, you kill stuff along the way.
    Each enemy has it's own time value, and the more consecutive kills you score
    the more time you get.
    
    Enemy          1 kill   2nd kill  3rd kill  additional kills

    Mutant Nemesis 120      n/a       n/a       n/a
    *You get 10 seconds for knocking Nemesis down and 20 seconds when you
      actually kill him.
    
    - Certain enemies have multiple types of themselves, such as Zombies that
      are male/female/laying down and Hunter Betas/Gammas.  They're all counted
      the same as far as time goes.
    
    - Barrels give you an additional 2 seconds per enemy that they kill.
    
    - Kills made with the Knife are multiplied by 8.  Theoretically, you can get
      up to 976 seconds if you barrell kill Mutant Nemesis with the Knife.  Of
      course, surviving that is another story all together.
    
    - You get 1 second for each time you dodge an enemy.
    
    - The bonus time timer will stay on screen for 3 seconds after the first
      kill.  If you want to make chains, you've got 3 seconds to do so, after
      that, a new chain will have to be started.
