May Not Run With... : Should be OK with everything. Even Doom2,exe
although I would use a port just in case it is possible
to get a visplane overflow. The map isn't too complex
though. I tried it with Zdoom, PRBoom, JDoom, Legacy
and Doom2.exe and was able to complete the level each
Well, this weekend I found myself in the very rare situation of having a bit of
spare time. So I decided to turn back the clock and make a simple, no port
specific map. I just started "doodling" stuff with DeePsea, trying to catch
some of what I like about E1M7, and about 4-5 hours later I had a map in front
of me. Up until then I hadn't even tried running it, but after play testing,
I decided it was worth spending a bit of time texturing it properly, and
working a bit on item placement. Voila, one (longish) afternoon's work later
For those Episode1 purists, there are bound to be some things you won't like
but this wasn't a serious attempt at an exclusively Ep1 map. It was just
something I did to amuse myself. In saying that, I stuck fairly closely to the
Doom1 textures that are available in Doom2 (which is a limited set compared to
Doom1 proper) and I didn't use any non Ep1 monsters (which maybe makes it a bit
easy). In addition, I didn't use any "fancy" architecture or port specific
line types. Stopping myself from making little complex, eye candy areas, was
the hardest part actually. I also tried to avoid linetypes that weren't
available before Doom2 came out, but a few did sneak in ;-).
